Critic Reviews for The Candy Snatchers
If nothing else, all the sleaze gets your attention in this neglected cult film and keeps you interested even if it repels you.
Not a classic, but an unjustly forgotten oldie from the golden age of violent exploitation ...
Off-beat '70s drive-in fare about a kidnapping gone awry. Exhibits a twisted sense of humor that put it years ahead of its time. Tarantino obviously got a few ideas from this one.
Audience Reviews for The Candy Snatchers
Excellent, sordid, exploitation crime shocker. Made in the same vein as teh far inferior Last House on the Left, this rises above the genre to be a well acted, nicely paced nihilistic film with a great story involving kidnapping and double-crosses. The opening song claims again and again, "Money is the root of all happiness" and this film does it's damndest to prove it wrong. Slimeball characters discard any morality to get what they want. Granted there is a sympathetic character or 2, but even they are very flawed. An excellent film that I'm very happy has been pulled from the underground and has been given a mainstream release.
Fairly benign exploitation fare with a hilarious, bizarre performance by the young boy in the film.
