Carol Kane is perfectly cast as chronic victim Jeannie with her big sad eyes & fragile demeanour, so jaw-droppingly heartbreaking you almost gotta cover yer shock with nervous laughter! The poor 16-year-old is shy & sheltered, & constantly hounded after by her brat bully slut girlfriend Dolly to grow some guts & learn how to shoplift at Kresgie’s & cocktease the grownups for blackmail money! Director William Fruet, who wrote the screenplay for 1970 Canucksploitation classic Goin’ Down the Road (starring the same two hosers that destroy this family), would later employ horror chops to great effect on underrated home invasion nightmare Death Weekend (1976)! The heading for this Motion Picture Purgatory which originally appeared in a 2008 issue of The Montreal Mirror was “Love Blooms In Strange Ways!” As always; the original art’s for sale @ 100 bucks.
