Product Description

A preacher starts a church" that worships a twisted trinity-sex, booze and torture! Luckily, a posse of Feds breaks up the insanity in This Stuff'll Kill Ya (Jeffrey Allen. 1971/98 min.) and The Year of the Yahoo (1972/88 min.) is a wonderfully cynical long-lost masterpiece about an advertising executive who goes overboard! More masterful horror films from Herschell Gordon Lewis. Color/NR/fullscreen.

This is the third DVD from Something Weird that I have seen that is devoted to the works of Herschell Gordon Lewis, who has made some of the most boring B-movies that I have ever seen (the answer to your unasked question is not that I am a glutton for punishment but that I am apparently committed to checking out every Something Weird DVD I can find). However, while "This Stuff'll Kill Ya!" is a typically boring Lewis picture, "The Year of the Yahoo!" is actually worth watching. After all, there are not too many B-movies that deal this well with politics in the pre-Watergate Nixon years and I would hate to think that the best part of this DVD ended up being the Something Weird introductory montage (which I almost have memorized I have seen it so often this year).

But first you have to sit through "This Stuff'll Kill Ya!" This 1971 effort stars Jeffrey Allen as the Reverend Roscoe Boone, a Foghorn Leghorn sort of redneck windbag who has started a congregation based primarily on the effects of white lightin'. But these are perilous times for the Reverend because the F.B.I. have a thing about bootleggers. Meanwhile, the price of a sip from the jug has gone from a dime to two bits and really bad things are happening to not only those helping the revenuers but also members of the congregation. That is how Lewis gets to work in the requisite blood in this film, while the sex scenes consist mostly of pieces of clothing flying through the air. In the How Far the Mighty Have Fallen category we have Tim Holt in his last screen appearance as F.B.I. Agent Clark, but this one rises and falls on the performance by Allen, because you are not going to like the film more than you like that. I come down right in the middle on this one and give it 2.5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars love year of the yahoo December 3, 2004
but then i am prejudiced - i was a star in the film

thought it had been long lost to history - don't think it was ever released ! what a hoot to discover it forever saved on dvd.

remember lights falling on us when the duct tape gave way and running to the bank with the final pay check to turn than into cash

all sorts of san antonio actors show up in little bits and pieces

a really awful film, but my one shot at cinematic glory (was in Viva Max, too, if you look very closely)

i absolutely reccomend it to no one unless you were in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rednecks Galore! October 3, 2004
Leading off this H.G. Lewis double feature is the 1971 hillbilly horror flick This Stuff'll Kill Ya! Stuff follows the exploits of a bogus backwoods minister with a penchant for manufacturing and distributing illegal moonshine while convincing his congregation through misconstrued bible verses that it is all in the name of the Lord. It sounds great doesn't it? Well it's not. Actually it's long, dull and boring. The ad campaigns were fab though. "Too Much Lovin'! Too Much Likker! Too Much Lawbreakin'!" or "It Moves Brother! Better Git On In Here!" though they did conveniently omit at just what speeds the picture moved: slow and slower. Jeffrey Allen as Reverend Roscoe Boone is as remarkable as the script allows, which ain't much. Actually Allen is quite good in Lewis' other 2 hillbilly exploiters, 2000 Maniacs and Moonshine Mountain, but here his talents are stifled by the stilted dialogue and static direction. Perhaps I'm being overly harsh. The movie's not a total loss. It does boast some awfully nasty murders with heavy biblical overtones (i.e. stoning, burning and even crucifixions). Also This Stuff'll Kill Ya! was a first for Larry (Dr. Giggles, Darkman) Drake and a last for Tim (The Treasure of the Sierra Madre) Holt.

Pulling up the rear on this DVD is 1972's Year of the Yahoo!!. Yahoo is a southern fried romp through media manipulation, crooked politics and damned good country and western music. The plot goes something like this. Governor Baxter along with some slick media professionals are determined to unseat liberalist Senator Fred Burwell, and country star Hank Jackson is called in to become their mouthpiece.
