This film starts with a title card that says, “America’s Fearless Showman Kroger Babb.”
No matter what happens after that, I love this movie.
Bernie Hamilton, who was Capt. Harold Dobey on Starsky and Hutch, as well as appearing in Scream Blacula Scream, The Swimmer and Luis Buñuel’s The Young One, is Mike, a black theology student dealing with addiction.
Writer, actor and producer Jac Zacha had aspirations here, but the film falters. Supposedly, there was a cut opening where he explained how this was the true story of his life. Maybe he wanted to take that out after, you know, there’s that scene when a woman goes off a cliff. Beyond being as convincing as a falling in a Fulci movie, this movie would implicate him in a death.
One of the actors in here, Eric Weston, would go on to write and direct Evilspeak.
You can watch this on the amazing ByNWR site.
