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

½

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.
