Product Description

When Kate "Ma" Barker (Shelley Winters) robs a bank with her four beloved sons, she's got a great opening line: "We're gonna play Simon Says, and this," she says, pointing to her Tommy gun, "is Simon." You gotta love the ol' broad's moxie, and you gotta love this Roger Corman classic for serving it up so shamelessly. Capitalizing on the impact of Bonnie and Clyde while adding the more perversely exploitative elements of Corman's drive-in fare, this Depression-era shoot-'em-up is prime viewing for its early appearance by Robert De Niro (making his fifth film) and Corman stalwarts like Don Stroud, but it's Winters's over-the-top portrayal of Ma Barker (very loosely based on fact) that gives the movie its rather unseemly edge. Alternately sharing her bed with each of her sons (as if they were teddy bears made for her incestuous pleasure), and twisting morality to suit the needs of her homicidal brood, this gun-toting matriarch is a deviously amusing detour on Winters's weight-gaining road to The Poseidon Adventure.

The movie gains character from its rural Arkansas locations, but the redneck flavor is entirely theatrical, and while De Niro learns to shine for the camera, his performance as glue-sniffing, dope-shooting Lloyd Barker shows hints of future stardom. Corman gets good work from the entire cast, in fact, even if his formula calls for sex, violence, or vice every 10 minutes. And while it would be a mistake to elevate Bloody Mama above its trashy aspirations, it certainly earns its place among such '70s gangster fodder as Big Bad Mama and Boxcar Bertha. Made at a time when movies were enjoying their liberation from the confines of good taste, Bloody Mama is an enjoyable wallow in bad taste. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: VHS Tape
Long before "never trust anyone over thirty" a final solution was proposed in this classic movie.
"Max Frost" (Christopher Jones) has figured out the fundamental flaw in the U.S. Government. "AGE", yep those old fogies are too stuck in their ways to run a government of the people. So with a little correction this can be amended. Be sure to see the unique solution for adjusting the government and helping people to retire a tad early.
Now the real question that "Max" must face is what is old? Be sure to listen to ""The Shape of Things to Come." And look for Bill Mummy of "Lost in Space"

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on July 2 2015
Format: DVD
Not since "She" has there been a more bizarre post apocalyptic movie. In this "Logan Run's" film everyone over 25 dies. leaving the world divided in various outlaw anarchist group. The story centers on a hippie couple who preach open love on their way across Texas to Pueblo to find the oracle and "The Answer." They follow billboards as one was traveling on I-95 to "South of the Border."

The various gangs include those with golf carts and a those who "rape, kill, and loot" dressed up as a high school football team complete with an marching band and cheerleaders.

The humor was offbeat which explains the 4 stars. In one scene the woman says "Let's create and ancient legend...anyone who bathes naked in this pool of water after the first cold wintry wind will find the key to happiness." At this point her boyfriend finds a hotel key on the ground, "Sands Casino and Hotel, Las Vegas.

The film talks about sex and rape but doesn't show anything "R" rated. Young girls screaming being chased and thrown on a bed is about as risque as it gets.

No f-bombs that I recall. I watched the film for free on "Epix Drive-in" which normally doesn't edit anything out.

This is a Roger Corman film with regrettable roles by Cindy Williams, Ben Vereen, and Taliha Shire. Mike Castle who played Burroughs in this film went on to become the Claw salesman in Galaxina.

An implausible movie about what could have been yet well done and with a humourous ending. A great look into the past which portrays a lot of what the youth movement of the late sixties was actually like. A very interesting take on politics as well.
