“Dirty” Keyholes! “Immoral” Wives! The “Naked” Truth About Cult Grindhouse Cinema!

Time To Take A Peek Through A Dirty Peephole!

Sometimes you know EXACTLY what a movie is just by looking at the poster…I have an example for you: does ANYONE wonder what THIS film is all about?

Noon on the moon

Thanks to the wonders of cinema, there is a “nature camp” on the moon! And it looks like quite the party! I can only imagine the cinematic experience that awaits me on that outer space trip! And how about this “very close family!”

“Sex Was Her Master! Lust Was Her Destiny!”

Yes, I know it’s wrong, but who wouldn’t want to at least find out what was going on in this film? For a time in our country’s cinematic history, it exemplified a type of movie that – for a very select audience – was SO SO RIGHT! Time to peep into an era in movie history when the posters were just about the dirtiest part of the film!

Keyholes Are For Peeping

“Keyholes Are For Peeping!”

Let’s go back to the “grind house” era – when films were screened in dingy theaters that catered to “lonely, adventurous men”…because these were made for one reason only: to get a single man’s attention!

The posters were designed to tempt frustrated bachelors with illicit shenanigans that would open their eyes and excite their imaginations!

This World Lives Online!

There are SO many classic sexploitation films from the 60’s and 70’s, it’s impossible to know them all…but there are now people here to help – thanks to the internet!

For example, I missed out on this gem – until “Goregirlsdungeon” helped me discover it!

Here is a review from IMDB, courtesy of Michael Elliott:

“Another mind-number from director Doris Wishman remains mildly interesting for being the last performance by the Jerry Lewis clone Sammy Petrillo who is best remembered today for the cult classic BELA LUGOSI MEETS A BROOKLYN GORILLA!

Yes, It’s Sammy Petrillo’s Last Movie!

Talk about an obscure movie star! Meet Sammy Petrillo. In this film he plays Stanley, a loser living at home with his mother (also played by Petrillo!) who gets one of those by-mail marriage conciliar licenses and soon he is working with various couples. That’s only “part” of the story as the rest of the film deals with a dirty janitor looking at people through keyholes and of course the real “attraction” are the various sex and nude scenes.”

Here is a scene with the great Sammy Petrillo:

Thanks to “TaylorHamKid” for posting this on youtube…and this is just one of the many classic sexploitation films that GoreGirl “exposes”!

The Immoral Three movie

“The Immoral Three!”

Check out this classic sexploitation plotline:

Three young girls must avenge the death of their mother, who was a spy, in order to collect a $3-million inheritance – there’s your plot, enjoy it! It was also directed by Doris Wishman, and was an indirect sequel to her classic Chesty Morgan flicks “Deadly Weapons” and “Double Agent 73”.
