To be honest, I have never regarded Edward D. Wood Jr. to be the worst director of all time but I do see him as the absolute worst writer of all time. I tried reading one of his scripts once but literally had to stop after 3 pages because I had no idea what was happening. This is the same problem I had with this movie.

It really makes you wonder who ever picked up this script and decided to turn it into a movie. It's not like Edward D. Wood Jr. ever had a good name anywhere. Stephen C. Apostolof however had the guts, or was just simply clueless enough to turn this Ed Wood script into an actual movie. Well, movie is a big word for this. I don't know how to call this really.

Without kidding, I felt like my head was going to explode after trying to watch this for a while. I did finish it but was forced to fast forward through most of it, or else I most likely wouldn't had survived this ordeal. This movie didn't even required a real story in it, since it all it features are a bunch of girls dancing half naked at a cemetery, for Criswell and his princess of darkness, who looks like a Vampira knockoff.

Really, that is all this movie is. Just a bunch of girls dancing with smoke around them and a mummy and werewolf in the background. I don't know how many dancing acts there are in this movie but it felt like at least a dozen. It becomes incredibly tiresome after a while, especially when the dances just go on and on and don't know when to stop. The dances aren't even that particularly impressive to look at, though Criswell still looked entertained.

This is only the second and last movie Criswell ever appeared in. The first and other one was of course Ed Wood's classic "Plan 9 from Outer Space", which was a way better movie compared to this one. Guess this movie is only interesting if you want to experience Criswell in full color, or sexicolor as they call it for this movie but who would ever want to do that?

This movie is typical for '60's eroticism. Just showing some half naked girls but not showing or doing anything else. There is no real story, no tension, no mystery, no excitement, no nothing. It even doesn't matter much that none of the actors in this movie can act, since they simply get nothing to do at all in this movie.

Without exaggerating; one of the absolute worst movie experiences I had to sit through.
