No stars. 100%?!?! Did the reviewers watch the same film as me? Or did I watch some different version of the film where there was "tension" and "underlying creepiness" (to quote some of the professionals on here)? Because this is a 0 star, 0% work all the way. Anyone who thinks otherwise has obviously not seen "Badlands," which, like this film, is based on the reign of terror of real life teenage murderer Charles Starkweather and his pre-teen partner Caril Ann Fugate. THERE'S a movie with tension and unsettling creepiness. THIS movie is notable for one thing, and one thing only, Arch Hall Jr, the bleached blonde, baby faced wannabe Elvis who starred in "Eegah!" (one of the worst movies ever made and one of the best episodes of "Mystery Science Theater 3000") plays a creep much like Starkweather. Previously, Arch Hall Sr (who played the Dad and wrote and directed "Eegah," using a different pseudonym for each profession) tried his hardest to turn his son into the next teen sensation. He had champagne dreams on an RC Cola budget. After two flops (the other being "Wild Guitar," which I've never seen and probably never will), Sr. realized that the ladies weren't going to go crazy for Jr. So, he did a complete 180 degree rotation, and cast his son as an unlikable nutcase killer, complete with his own Caril Ann Fugate (played by Roxy from "Eegah," only her character is mute in this film so we don't have to hear her awful line delivery). Oh, right, the plot. A group of Decent Ordinary American Citizens break down in the middle of the desert and, to make matters worse, cross paths with Charch Starkhallther Jr and his lady friend, who opt to "have some fun" with them. Having some fun consists mostly of pointing a gun at the group, laughing like a demonic Pee Wee Herman, and boasting of all the killings he's done. He does each of these actions SEVERAL times. Seriously. Points the gun, laughs the laugh, then tells about this guy he killed (not a different guy each time, the SAME STORY about the SAME GUY. And he keeps telling the story over and over like it's the first time we've heard it, and the hostages always react like it's the first time they've heard it. LOTS of repetition in this movie. Roxy Ann turns on the car radio and does a little dance for several minutes. Then turns off the radio and sits down. Then she gets up, turns the radio back on and does the EXACT SAME dance to the EXACT SAME song again! Barely a minute went by before that scene was repeated on us. What is the meaning of this? Is this movie trying to drive you insane? Is that why it gets 100%, because not the scares, not the tension but the endless repeating of scenes over and over again is designed to flip your wig? If so, stroke of genius! But then again, they expect us to be scared of Arch Hall Jr. There isn't an acting academy in the world that could get someone to feign horror at the sight of that hair helmet and screwy face. Long review aside, I found this more annoying than scary, just like audiences found Arch Hall more annoying than someone the girls would go crazy for. Justifiably forgotten, no reason to see it, wish "MST3K" had riffed it. Hah! Heh heh heh!!!!
