Uncle Farts’ ’70s Grindhouse Sleazefest is a most unusual collection of soft-core erotica and irreverent cartoons sequences. Content wise this release is made of four films?
The first film is titled ‘Sex Odyssey’ it is a dialog free romp about caveman and cavewomen. There really is not much to this one. It is a pretty forgettable film, that quickly wears out its welcome.
The second film is titled ‘Dionysius’ is an impoverished sex romp retelling of a Greek god’s fable. And while this one is not as painful to watch as Sex Odyssey. It is not too far behind quality wise.
The third film is titled ‘Honky Tonk Nights’ and this one revolves around a big breasted singer, who dreams of making it big. Getting to the top is never easy, even if you have talent. To spice this one up, there is a rival singer who competes with the big breasted singer for the spotlight. Even though this is the longest of the four film included with this set. And it also features the most coherent of plot. Unfortunately the amount of naked flesh in this one is incredibly low. And the sex scenes are also extremely tame. This one only saving grace is its cast which includes Carol Doda (Head) and Georgina Spelvin (The Devil in Miss Jones).
The fourth and final film is titled ‘Satan’s Daughter’ and this one revolves around Satan’s daughter, who is about to have her eighteenth birthday. Outside of some very spooky voice over from the prince of darkness. This is yet another soft-core romp padded with sex scenes.
Before each of these four films and the film’s coda. There are cartoon sequences with a portly character known as Uncle Fart. These crude interludes are the most entertaining aspect of this release.
All four films and the cartoon sequences are presented in a 1.33:1 full frame aspect ratio. The sources look like they have been taken from worn prints. With the best looking of the four films being Honky Tonk Nights.
This release comes with one audio option, a Dolby Digital mono mix in English. The audio has background noise, a few audio drop outs and some distortion issues. For the most part dialog comes through clearly enough to follow.
Extras are limited to liner notes about these four films that were written by exploitation film historian John Nilisson. These liner notes do a exceptional put these films and this release into context. Also included with this release are trailers for All the Sins of Sodom, Busty Bombshells of the Atomic Age, Deep Throat Comedy Collection, Girls, Girls, Girls of the 1970’s, Grindhouse Girls of the 1970’s, Naughty Nymphs and Skin in the 70’s. Overall Uncle Farts’ ’70s Grindhouse Sleazefest is a bizarre collection of erotica that even the most diehard purveyor of smut will have a hard time sifting through.
