Although John Broderick’s Six Pack Annie, where our title lush searches for the right Sugar Daddy to keep her restaurant afloat, isn’t the apex of the Hicksploitation or Backwater Buffoonery genre it’s still worth your time, even if you don’t have a high tolerance for such things. As for our second feature, we move out of the country to the streets of suburban Los Angeles, where our title lead is a cop who gives his *ahem* ‘nightstick’ a lot of work as he protects and serves, and serves, and serves and serves and serves, a seemingly endless line of needy women. (And you won’t believe what the Urban Dictionary’s definition of a Dirty O’Neil is…)

I haven’t had the pleasure of watching Herschell Gordon Lewis’ A Taste of Blood yet, but from what I’ve read I think I need to take a look — and fast. Seems somebody has accidentally ingested some blood of Dracula, who is now seeking revenge on the descendents of those who done the Transylvanian Count in. That’s right: an unofficial sequel to Bram Stoker’s novel that clocks in at an astonishing 2 hours! No wonder it’s referred to as Lewis’ Gone with the Wind. As for our second feature, I’ve only seen the MST3k’d version of Teen-Age Strangler a/k/a Terror in the Night but I always kinda dug the hometown auteur flavor of the proceedings. It’s clumsy and a bit kooky, but it also has a bit of a nasty streak, making it worth a look unmolested — if you can find it.

FTLOF - Film Noir 01Reduced Size with Titles
 
Well, folks, it got too big too fast and almost got away from me. But! Even though the month is over and we didn’t get as far as we’d hoped, fear not, at some point in the future the Morgue will head back to Noirville again and pick up exactly where we left off. As for now, we’ll be on hiatus for a couple of weeks as I head to the Riverside Drive In in Vandergrift, PA, for the two night April Ghoul’s Monster Rama festival. Thus and so, updates will resume on around April 15. Until then, Boils and Ghouls, stay cool.
