Jonathan is part hairdresser, mostly gigolo, and all man.  This movie can never decide if it is a simple exploitation movie, a silly comedy, or a violent shocker.

Never heard of this movie before, but after reading this description, I'm rather glad I hadn't.  The movie sounds way to perverted for me and doesn't seem to have much a of fix on a genre almost from the description.  Oh yeah, this movie was definitely made before the knowledge of STDs because from what I read, probably the entire cast by now has one disease.

We live in quite an interesting age. You can tell someone's sexual orientation and level of education from just their interests.

Um, yeah...  that wig mannequin looks suspiciously like a giant lime-green sex-toy with a human head mounted on top. I'm betting you could make a serious drinking game out of taking a shot every time this movie displays some kind of off-the-wall sexual imagery.

Since I don't drink, I'll just pass on the movie altogether.

Does anyone else think the circular white thing on the front resembles an old rotary dial phone???

That's one multi-tasking phallic object if it is!

This film can be described in one word. "Blaxploitation." Whatever happened to "Blaxploitation?" Some good films came out of that, such as "Blacula" w/ William H. Marshall in the title role.

"Have you ever seen a '70s porn film? It's like watching a bath mat fighting with a boa constrictor. Egad, but the '70s were woolly. "

This, sir, is the mos EPIC win ever. I laughed so hard at this my sides actually hurt a little.

As for the movie, never heard of it, but after reading the review I know that I'll have to see it some day, just to check how bad it actually is.

Yeah, saw this years ago, and the only thing I remember is the death by curling iron (also employed via a different orifice in, I think, Sleepaway Camp).  Man, that's just not right.

Hey, I didn't put that in the script.  I just made sure you heard about it.  Imagine my surprise the first time I watched this film and that occurred.

I don't remember a whole lot of phallic objects; it's just that one thing.  The wig mannequin tends to attract the viewer's attention in any scene that includes that hideous thing.

I know there were discrimination, poverty and segregation at the time, but from watching these movies, I do sometimes fantasize that I was a 20-year-old African American living in Newark, New Jersey in 1972 … BounceGiggle

The scene is funny, but also creepy in a number of ways, and do not attribute my "bush" comment to simple hyperbole. Have you ever seen a '70s porn film? It's like watching a bath mat fighting with a boa constrictor. Egad, but the '70s were woolly.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
