This film looks and plays just like what it's really about -- the death rattle of the 1960's. "Peace and love" and "we shall overcome" have been replaced by the unspoken 70's slogans of "Let's get stoned, rape some bitches, and kill somebody!"
A couple of hip, hot to trot, black and white chicks, CAROL SPEED (Abby, Disco Godfather) and DIANE LEE HART, hit the Sunset Strip scene ready to party. The Doors and Iron Butterfly are long gone, but what's left is "The Group," headed by KIPP WHITMAN (the younger brother of Stuart). Bad little blonde CONNIE STRICKLAND is a rich bitch, already balling one of the band members. These three hot mamas team up and head for The Fat Cat where they strip and strut their stuff.
Back with the band, the girls get stoned and ready to orgy. The fat bearded bass player (DENNIS BURKLEY) grabs the two white chicks and forces them to shower in front of him while his brain fries. The girls do nude photo lay-outs and almost become hookers. Fat boy continues to freak out, occasionally raping and finally strangling a stray groupie. The band even gets fired from its gig!
Everybody eventually confronts fat boy, the pigs show up with sirens blazing, and the whole deal turns into one Big Screaming Bummer!... with a double shock ending, of course.
Produced by DAVID F. FRIEDMAN. Watch for a young, cigar-smoking Dave in a cowboy hat as a police lieutenant, along with fellow skin-maven BOB CRESSE as a sergeant, in the film's finale. Photographed by GARY "I worked for Orson Welles!" GRAVER.
This was fat boy Dennis Burkley's first film. He gets the last laugh on all of us as he is now a major character actor, featured in films like Oliver Stone's The Doors.
From the 35mm "With Losers, It's a Way of Life!" negative.
