THE CANDY SNATCHERS (1973)
THE CANDY SNATCHERS is an awesome slice of 70's sleazy drive-in cinema if you like that sort of thing, this is the movie for you. It's kind of like a slightly less malevolent version of LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT. There's rape and there's misogyny but it's not quite as offensive. Maybe that's because David Hess just adds that extra bit of repulsiveness to his character. There's a retarded kid who sorta becomes the hero of this piece which is a neat thing. Besides him and the main victim, Candy, there aren't many people you feel sympathy for in the movie. There's plot twists and craziness. One of my all time favorites. I've re-watched this disc several times since I bought it.
