It’s fairly common among aficionados of cult and exploitation cinema: despite regular television exposure throughout the 80’s and a fairly decent presence on VHS, one of the very last directors we begrudgingly begin to appreciate is Al Adamson.
In the grand tradition of such all time classics of softcore drive in exploitation as Country Hooker, Sassy Sue and Midnight Plowboy comes Pussycat Ranch, a doofy hicksploitation effort that comes complete with a Gram Parsonsesque theme song (check out those lyrics) and none other than future Doris Wishman starlet Samantha Fox, oddly billed here as “introducing…” despite her having appeared in at least 5 films prior…another of which is on this very disc, and from the same director!
Kim is a hard bitten 70’s schoolgirl, living with her trashy widower mother in a typical California single level ranch house. She smokes, drinks, cusses and wears tops that make her look like Lookee from She-Ra…and she’s not exactly eye candy, either.
A fragile 1970’s city girl, who’s just gotten over an implied nervous breakdown following her mother’s death, decides to spend the summer at her newly inherited late aunt’s place in the country, left empty for 35 years.
