Critic Reviews for The Sinister Urge
Ed Wood-o-manes will probably get their kicks from this 1961 exploitationer.
Audience Reviews for The Sinister Urge
A total mess of a film by the infamous Ed Wood involving an (inferred to be) illegal porn ring and the tough matron the runs it. Funny, because I am sure its the exact same as it goes on now how the treat (buy) the girls, though now its all fine and legal. Ties to the drug trade and other illicit trades are explored as well. One of the producers becomes a killer(?) because of his porn obsession. Robot friends, once again.
Only Wood's worst movie because the story is horrible. If you watch this, you will see how great his other films were. It's also on Mystery Science Theater, so I recommend going that route.
Not bad premise. (It's basically "L.A. Confidential" if you think about it.) But terrible, terrible execution--courtesy of Ed Wood Jr. Funny episode of MST3K.
