A very New Yawk-inflected sub-Bobby Darin lounge singer (Jack Stern) croons over the credits as the always lovely Leslie Bovee saunters across a busy city street, 70’s style. Think anything from the omnipresent Jennifer O’Neill print and television ads of the era to That Girl, Rhoda and that neverending Virginia Slims campaign – you’ll get the idea.

“Dear fellow human: God created the universe for you…then he created you.
If I can…bring to your life that little extra spec (sic) of light which will make you a bit more aware, hence, a lot happier then, because I love you, I too, will feel in my heart a lot happier.”

It’s yet another unusual August where the expected oppressive heat and humidity are nowhere to be found, in favor of a cool, September style briskness.
Similarly, Vinegar Syndrome delivers a rather mixed bag of pristine prints of quite variable in value offerings from the height of hardcore’s moment in the mainstream – cool where they should be hot, more curious than carnal. Three are actually pretty decent views…the other three, utter wastes of celluloid. Let’s take a look, shall we?
It’s that time of month once again, and June’s adult double bill from the mighty Vinegar Syndrome features two films directed by John Hayes, also known for his Something Weird style oddities Dream No Evil, Fandango and Jailbait Babysitter.
Now, without question, Hayes is probably most (in)famous for the entertaining hippie-zombie film Garden of the Dead and the weird but quite enjoyable Michael Pataki horror Grave of the Vampire. But like more than a few exploitation filmmakers of the era, he had a brief second career in adult film as “Howard Perkins”.
And at least one of them’s a real doozy.
