Amy

Sometimes, it feels as if we are eavesdropping on day-to-day conversations rather than just hearing the usual litany of platitudes and regrets.

The Re-forgotten Lost Devil Girls Trailer of Ed Wood!

Now, for the penultimate time! Ten years in the development vault! Dripping wet from the subcutaneous epidural labs! Writer-Producer-Director-Hyphenate Andre Perkowski and Terminal Pictures Presents the previously unclaimed, unfulfilled trailer for Edward D. Wood Jr.'s "The Devil Girls"!!! You'll thrill to their prevailing sex urges for lust, dementia and forbidden entertainment!

If there were a DVD Special Edition of the above, the formerly 22-year-old Perkowski would explain in his Writer-Producer-Director-Hyphenate's commentary:

Ed Wood's pulp paperback was shot in a frenzied four and a half days in 1999 on a mix of cheapo DV and film but the original Super-8/16mm film elements lay undeveloped and untransferred for years. Last year they were stitched in along with some more inserts that were shot for this and the "The Vampire's Tomb" to finally bring them in line with what was originally planned for this insane trilogy of exploitation noir based on unproduced Ed Wood Jr. screenplays and fiction... with the great Philip Proctor of the Firesign Theatre graciously throwing in a hypermanic pitch...

Proctorlogical narration includes neo-retro-Firesignian constructions such as: "The Poverty Row expressionist epic of the decade! Made! Fogotten! Found and absolved of its sins! An all-out 8mm onslaught of unbearable Super 8 savagery --16 mm pain in the analog underground!"

And, no doubt, the subject of a future Quentin Tarantino HD remake!
