Exploitation mavenRuss Meyercreated a cult classic with this turbo-charged action film. Three curvaceous go-go dancers in a cool sports car go on a desert crime spree, led by Varla (the amazingTura Satana), a busty, nasty woman dressed entirely in black. Varla's lesbian moll, Rosie (Haji) -- who has an extremely overwrought accent -- and reluctant bimbo Billie (Lori Williams) are along for the ride. When they meet a naïve young couple, Tommy and Linda (Ray BarlowandSue Bernard), Varla challenges the man to a race then kills him by breaking his back. They take Linda hostage and drive to a house owned by a crippled old lecher (Stuart Lancaster) and his muscular but retarded son, Vegetable (Dennis Busch). Varla discovers that the old man has money hidden on the property, so the girls try to find it. Meanwhile, Vegetable's perverted father tries to trick him into assaulting one of the girls as he watches, but his other son (Paul Trinka) finally shows up to save the day. A great deal of bloodshed, campy catfighting, and funny dialogue fills the bulk of this fast-paced comic book of a movie.
Mondo Culto is a thriving, obsessive, and elaborate "be-in" for friends of Cult Films and the stepping to the punk beat of the East Village: Ass Juice at the Double Down, Karoake at Planet Rose, Cheese Fries at Crif Dogs, and Midnight Movies at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema are just some of the staples of La Vida Mondo Culto. So if you like living after midnight and rocking till the dawn, The Mondo Culto Experience is for you!
