Bring 'Em Back Nude (extra on The Beast That Killed Women/The Monster of Camp Sunshine DVD (Something Weird, 2001)). [Category: Sleaze & Outsider]

A woman gets to borrow her sister's apartment while the sister and her husband are away on a jungle expedition. So, naturally, the woman immediately strips in front of the handy camera left running in the living room. Then she puts on a sheer robe and stretches out on the floor and reads her sister's diary, which tells the story of the sister's jungle expedition. Said expedition involves an African guide who inexplicably dresses like the New Year's Baby; a mysterious tribe led by two "white goddesses" who are actually naked white women; a gorilla who kidnaps the sister, takes her to the "goddesses" and strips her naked; the kidnapping of the goddesses, plus several naked native women for good measure, by the sister's husband; and lots of confusing and surreal stock footage of African natives. It all ends with the original woman being interrupted in her reading by the leering husband of her sister. This was originally a peep show––you can tell by the fact that every few minutes you see a title card demanding that you fork over another dime to see more. Even taking that into account, there's something charmingly wacky about this cheapo film, making it more watchable than these sorts of things usually are.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
