Now this one sounds interesting...
I'd love to track down a print, though I doubt it's doable.

Would make an interesting double bill with The Blob, given the higher leanings of its producer/directors.

Wish I could've seen this one!

Don't know how I missed this before. Bob West (who passed away a few years ago) was one of my professors at Kent State. I had no idea he'd made this film.

And strangely enough, Google tells me this may have played on Wadsworth cable access (where producer Homer Baldwin was a producer) this past October. I've emailed station management to see if that's the case.

Good news, schlockers - I have made a new dvd transfer from the one existing 16mm print that is in Bob West's possession (btw - he's not dead). Together we recorded audio commentary for the picture, and I cut a trailer out of the vhs copy - you can see this on youtube! I am currently authoring the dvd and THANK GOD for this site and it's newspaper reviews, which I'll include on the disc. Keep in touch.
