    Hide And Go Shriek

    ★★½

    Dated by the time it came out and it gets off on its own freakshow vibes. Surprised they didn't advertise it as "in the tradition of Psycho". Set in the ugliest city ever (I don't care where it is) and inside an ugly furniture store it has less of a sense of place than Chopping Mall or even The Initiation. That says a lot. At least there's no lighting!

    All sex and in yer face, minimal dialog, a kind of bridge between the primitives and the narratives. Richard Locke is king for eternity. Funny use of Peter Berlin, Tom of F iconography. Johnny Harden should've won an Oscar for Best-Supporting-Actor-in-himself.

    I hated every character. And the twee ending.

    So much to unpack in a worthless movie: the final 20 minutes must be seen to be believed...shirtless kung fu...a scene which tributes the Grauman Chinese in Blazing Saddles...plus Erik Estrada, Ron Jeremy, Jack Carter, Paul Smith and a song over the end credits..."Only in the movies..." amazing, but garbage.....
