Black Exploitation Horror Film at it's finest :-)

""Poor Pretty Eddie" AKA "Black Vengeance".If you are easily offended By "Black Exploitation Horror Films" and stereotypical films I recommend you not to watch this film. If you are a lover of horror exploitation films, like me :-) this is a gem for you! I consider this a cult classic. Excellent star cast: Lesle Uggams as "liz", Michael Christian as"Eddie"(Terror On The Beach),Shelley Winters (A Place In The Sun), Ted Cassidy (The Addam's Family),Dub Taylor(Them!),Slim Pickens(Beyond The Poseidon Adventure). "Liz" played by Leslie Uggams is on vacation and her car breaks down in a southern town and she takes a room at a motel where the motel clerk "Eddie" played by Micheal Christian falls in love with liz and will stop at nothing to keep her from leaving the motel. The end has a nice little twist to it. The Dvd picture and sound is very good."

"Singing sensation, Liz Wetherly (Leslie Uggams) takes a solo roadtrip in order to get away from it all. Unfortunately, her Rolls Royce breaks down in the middle of the redneck section of hell! Liz is forced to stay at a rustic lodge while her car is being fixed. Well, said lodge is run by alcoholic has-been Bertha (Shelley Winters from Whoever Slew Auntie Roo?, Whatever's The Matter With Helen?, etc.) and her leering, Elvis-like, young lover, Eddie (Michael Christian), who are both totally nuts! If they're not bad enough, we get Slim Pickens (Dr. Strangelove, The Howling) as the perverted sheriff, Dub Taylor as the twisted justice of the peace, and Ted "Lurch" Cassidy as the manic mechanic! Liz finds herself at the mercy of people who are not just racist hicks, but dangerously deranged as well! Her nightmare takes the form of rape, humiliation, and a mock wedding! Ted Cassidy's character seems to be the only one w/ an ounce of brains or heart! The rest are slobbering lunatics w/ Liz's degradation as their latest group project. I kept hoping Liz would start wacking these horrid hillbillies! I mean, she suffers so many indignities for such a long time, the movie is mostly Liz's frustrating torture session. Although this agony goes on for quite a while, trust me, the finalé is worth the wait..."

"According to the information on Amazons website the run time should be 92 minutes. What they sent me was the cut version run time 88 minutes. After asking for a replacement they again sent me the 88 minutes version. So finally I had to return both DVDs. They didn't correct the information on the website."

"this is another stellar performance by Shelly Winters as a disturbed Diva and the amazing cast that supports her seems to take the directors slant in stride creating one of the most haunting films that I have ever seen and look forward to seeing again. Perhaps all wedding planners should have a mandatory screening before the first thing is ever engraved."
