Movie Ad of the Week: STAG MODEL SLAUGHTER (1975)
Just For the Hell of It! (J4HI!) sent us this cool ad mat a couple of weeks ago to use for a future "Updating the IMDb" entry, but the title is so rare that we thought it should get its own post. American International Pictures released Pete Walker's HOUSE OF WHIPCORD beginning in November 1974, but by July '75 it had been retitled STAG MODEL SLAUGHTER by United Producers for select territories like Texas, where we found it co-billed with HELL HOUSE GIRLS, a re-release of SCHOOL FOR UNCLAIMED GIRLS (AIP's version of Robert Hartford-Davis' THE SMASHING BIRD I USED TO KNOW). United Producers performed another facelift on Walker's film and in December '75, a year after its stateside debut, it was re-released again as THE PHOTOGRAPHER'S MODELS, paired with HOOKERS REVENGE (a retitling of THEY CALL HER ONE-EYE) on a double bill that played successfully through the rest of the decade.
