So ever since, I've hoped "The Suckers" would appear on VHS or DVD so I could find out what happened. I found a trailer for it from Something Weird Video, but imdb.com didn't list the movie, and several inside sources stated confidently that it had been forever lost.
From seeing the trailer, I am quite sure that my date would have been horrified had "The Suckers" continued past the first reel. It is a fine example of what was called, in those days before hard-core porn, a "roughie." Such pictures had no outright sex, but their plots did supply plenty of excuses to tie up girls and/or get them naked to kidnap them or punish them or make them talk. Believe it or not, most of the old "roughies" ("Love Camp 7," "The Pick-Up," "The House Near the Prado") could not be made today, when graphic sex and graphic violence are OK, but sexual violence is taboo.
So if it sounds like your kind of movie, the evidence from the trailer is that it will deliver. Regardless, men will enjoy seeing one of the most appealing and attractive women of early 1970s sexploitation cinema: the lovely Laurie Rose ("The Abductors," "The Hot Box").Read more ›
"The Suckers" represents the 'roughie' of the pair. It is a blatant 'homage' to the classic 'Most Dangerous Game' theme of a rich, jaded, big game hunter turning his sights on human prey - first presented by 'King Kong' creator Merian C. Cooper waaay back in the 1930's. Updated to 'present day' the story line follows a group of (VERY attractive) fashion models & film crew who have been hired by a wealthy (you guessed it!) big game hunter to do a photo shoot at his desolate & remote property in the desert... but (to their horror!!) they become the prey in his demented hunting ritual. Vinegar Syndrome is generally noted for the xlnt visual quality of their product and this film is remarkably clear for its' age & obscurity - but - the original quality of THIS film is decidedly funky! However, in this case, the archival imperfections actually work to the advantage of the viewing experience as this flik is quintessential 'grindhouse' fare - replete with: dancing scratches, massive color shifts within a scene, audio that is 'variable', at best, inexplicable scene cuts, and a few areas of degraded film stock that (if it wasn't a DVD) would lead you to think the movie was about to 'dissolve' in the projector. In this way, the quality of the print really adds to the authentic grindhouse viewing experience.Read more ›
