H.G. Lewis was on quite a roll in the late 60's... In fact, he directed
11 films (!) in '67 and '68. I realize that Lewis has his share of
detractors. Many consider him a no talent hack who relentlessly
regurgitated disposable entertainment at a disturbingly prodigious rate
during the mid-to-late 60's. They often bemoan the nailed-down camera
work, wooden acting, and ridiculous situations depicted on screen.
Interestingly, these are the exact elements that make Mr. Lewis's films
so endearing to me...
When I watch movies, I do so for two main reasons. Either I want to be
entertained and amused; or I want be pulled out of my comfort zone, and
placed in a mental area in which I am forced to think about and ponder
various facets of life. This film entertains in a big way. In fact,
most H.G. Lewis films never fail to entertain me and bring a big smile
to my face...
Mr. Lewis is best know as being the Godfather of Gore. Not many
film-goers realize that Mr. Lewis was an incredibly versatile movie
making machine; dipping into children's films, morality tales,
hillbilly musical comedies, juvenile delinquent tales, nudies,
roughies, and other assorted ephemera...
'Just For The Hell Of It' is H.G. Lewis's juvenile delinquent
masterpiece. These are some bad kids...
The film starts out with a bang, and within 45 seconds a reckless
groups of youths can be found laying waste to and completely trashing a
house. These bad boys (and girl) are led by Ray Sager(as Dexter). The
entire film is dedicated to the exploits of Dexter and company, as they
terrorize a town and it's inhabitants. The pranks and mischief start
out relatively harmlessly (setting newspapers on fire, dousing citizens
with water, destroying laundry, trashing a restaurant), become more
bizarre and off-color (putting a baby in a trash can, beating a blind
man with his own cane), and of course become very malicious (gang rape
I really enjoyed this film quite a bit. With subsequent viewings, it
has never ceased to put a smile on my face. I also liked that Mr. Lewis
didn't try to justify or explain the actions of the rowdy youth- they
did it all 'Just For The Hell Of It'.... they did it for the kicks...
In fact, You should watch this highly entertaining piece of nostalgia
for the same reason...
These movies aint great, but if you like laughing at weird stuff, look no further. The production values are terrible, but the films are somehow awesome in their hilariousness (that's right "hilariousness"). I'd give them 4 stars because they are entertaining but I just cant. Wait a minute, yes I can.
***changes stars to 4***
Yep 4 stars. Maybe a star more than these two turkeys deserve, but who's counting right?
What else can I say?... Well, I guess you really dont need recreational drugs with movies like this around. You'll loes brain-cells aplenty watching this inane nonsense. I'd sum up the plots or major details in these movies, but why bother. Other reviews have done that already (wait... have they?) Oh well. I guess if you have some extra money layin' around and you want to see two truly bizarre flicks with some truly hilarious moments, buy this disc.
The real-deal Col. Sanders is in one of them, I swear...
