Gas-s-s-s

I found this on You Tube and was surprised to see it.
I had seen it many years ago and thought I would share it.
It is a Roger Corman film about a dystopia world where the military released a gas that killed everyone over 25 and has a lot of fun with the story line...if you remember 1970 you might get a kick our of seeing this.

1. Is this one of those movies that requires mind-altering substances to sit through the thing? :) nt

2. Not required.

If you were there then it will make sense.

3. Or maybe it was one of those films where they unleashed massive volumes of methane gas

on the theater audience to encourage realism. And to supplement the effect they stocked the theater lobby with ancient hot dogs for the theater goers.

Actually though I like Roger Corman's low budget films which are usually fun. I'll see if I can download it and watch it later. Thanks a lot for providing access to the entire film. Nice of you to share.

5. I own this. It's on the flip side of 'Wild In The Streets', which is also excellent.

7. Nice reminder...

 



...of the "low budget" style of film making that, though fun at the time, doesn't age well.

The storyline is lost immediately, but a potpourri of period visuals and contemporary jokes kept me in my seat when they came out (usually as one of a triple bill). It's a little harder to sit through today but I really had hoped that the divine Cindy Williams was wearing a prosthetic and didn't have to work in this disaster, while pregnant.

8. Well I disagree I don't think it was a disaster at all.

I think it was well made for a low budget flick and it was intended to be funny and poke fun at conservative ideas.
But we have different expectations today about what movies should be...they have to be filled with actions and lots of explosions and violence before we think they are "good".
And I hate the movies of today for that reason...but that is just me.

10. I tried but this was awful!

 

I really tried but no this was bad! Blazing Saddles, Godfather, and a bunch other from around the period are good this was bad. It's not about now movies and then movies this one just stinks. Sorry.
