Movie Info

In this film, future porno filmmaker Edward D. Wood Jr. rips the cover off the insidious "smut" racket. Three plumpish dirty-movie models are found murdered. Detectives Kenneth Duncan and Duke Moore set out to solve the killings and to bring the queen of the filthy-picture movie empire to justice.

Ed Wood-o-manes will probably get their kicks from this 1961 exploitationer.

An amusing film for those who prefer bad films over good ones.

Audience Reviews for The Sinister Urge


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.

Doesn't even work as an inadvertent comedy.
