FILM

It’s Zen like.
— The Godfather of Gore, Herschell Gordon Lewis (About Death's Living Room)
Wenner’s films often look like the sort of thing children with Super-8 cameras used to make in their backyard, which has a rough but genuine charm, and he certainly has mastered one detail of exploitation filmmaking. Specifically, the moment when everything goes haywire and the film suddenly turns into a collusion between colored lights, Dutch angles, and distorting lenses to give the sense that everything had erupted into madness, or some drug has taken effect, or an especially interesting party has broken out. You used to see this quite often in 1960s and ‘70s horror and drug films, and, now that I think about it, the “Batman” television show, but it isn’t much used any more and it’s nice to see it revived.
