“The crucial scene is the one that anyone who’s ever owned a Something Weird release knows all too well: Lawrence Aberwood's all-caps, bile-filled anti-woman screed, delivered almost entirely in extreme close-up . . . a landmark and sadly underseen film.”
"All you kids make me sick! You act like Little Miss Muffet, and down inside you're dirty! Do you hear me? Dirty!" And dirty is the word for SCUM OF THE EARTH, an outrageous exposé of smut peddling, early Sixties-style, and a startling departure from the colorfully cheerful nudie-cuties producer David Friedman and director H.G. Lewis had made up till then. This dark roughie is very much a warm-up act for BLOOD FEAST, the team's most infamous feature, made a few months later with much of the same cast.
