Barn of The Naked Dead

Barn of The Naked Dead directed by Alan Rudolph. Starring Andrew Prine. (1974).
            Some weirdos (Johnny Legend) have a special place in their hearts for this shitty drive in flick, I’m not one of them. The poster is what really grabs you! I remember seeing a big box for this at a video store (when those existed)! To me it has no redeeming qualities, unless you count the psychedelic theme song by Tommy Vig. Director Alan Rudolph didn’t do himself any favors later on by venturing onto working with Meatloaf in Roadie. Andrew Prine went onto to play the dumbass priest who gets demonically possessed in Amityville 2.
            The premise involves 3 showgirls (Elizabeth Berkeley not one of them). They are on their way to Vegas when their car breaks down and they get stranded in the desert. The evil ringmaster (Andrew Prine) locks them up in chains and plans to add them to his dilapidated hillbilly circus. This magnificent idea is completely wasted in Barn and it should be highly entertaining, but it’s the dullest shit imaginable! So what happened? Another case of too dull or not sleazy enough, available from Something Weird Video via Netflix. Download the cool theme song
