Something about Louisiana is scary. Something about the swamp or the Cajuns
maybe. Or is it the corrupt cops, the crooked governors or all that loose drinking? Houma, Louisiana is scary; anyone who's driven thru there will tell you that. There is a monster in this film, a giant Nutria (swamp rat in southern
terms) in fact. But the real monster is Houma. A place that defines scary. There is a plot to breed a new life form to harvest more fur. Splicing humans with swamp rats deliver a man-thing. But it still is the swamp that
is scary and the people that live there that is the real horror. It almost seems through the entire film that a stones throw away Cajuns and National Guard are locked in a bloody fight to the death over canoes. Frightenly Authentic.

I bet you're thinking demon seed, right? Nope. We're talkin' seeds...as in plants, man! Oooooo! This floral nightmare features the perpetually drugged out and oh so hunky Joe Dallesandro of Andy Warhol's films as...Carl...the GARDENER! Another truly bizarre and inexplicable entry in the canon of 70's horror.
Director: Al Adamson
Starring: Russ Tamblyn, Jennifer Bishop, Lon Chaney Jr., Alesha Lee
Wanton. Satanic. Drug Abuse... Nasty = Enticing. Shocking = Erotic. Heroin = Lesbian Sex! This film is pure, unhinged Al Adamson. Expect your guests to leave in a kerfulffle!! Epic women's-compound modern western revenge story...this film pushed some serious buttons and will leave the normals in a stunned state of shock. Godspeed we say!!!! Russ Tamblyn's best role ever...this is seriously fucked-up and amazing shit--topped only by Adamsonís own Angel's Wild Women. Adamson was ultimately found murdered and buried in the foundation of his own hot tub. Shot on location at Mansonís Spahn Ranch.

Based on (yet resembling not) a classic Theodore Sturgeon pulp story and with a mind bending-ly amazing Gil Melle score.....perhaps the Citizen Kane of Asteroid Possessed Bulldozer films....artfully brought to life by Vega$ thespian, Robert Urich!

What would happen if you were British, obsessed with Irwin Allen and completely bombed out on Quaaludes and Gin? One can only imagine we suppose, but it isnít entirely irresponsible to speculate that it would be something akin to the Terrornauts. Only the British would fill their moon base with wood paneling, coat racks, maids, tea pots and candelabras. Donít think this a negative critique however...It's like a really druggy, Willy Wonka-esque Lost in Space episode. The colors, sets and unrestrained story managed to really bring out the childlike sense of wonder in us. There is always something really cool just around the corner--it packs a surprising amount of twisty richness into its short 75 minutes. Another solid brick in the wall of proof that drugs and kids movies are a pretty marvelous union--its just a bit of a different set of drugs than we are used to! Tally Ho!
