Diane the Jungle Girl and Her Gorilla of Love (extra on Mighty Gorga/One Million AC/DC DVD (Something Weird, 2002)). [Category: Sleaze & Outsider]

With a title like that, I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't this. A woman in an evening gown sings a song about voodoo––this is interspersed with stock footage of a chimp eating. Just when you're about to ask for your money back, the real film starts. A woman (a different one) dressed in a bikini top and a sarong dances with a guy in an extremely poor gorilla suit. Well, she dances anyway, the guy in the gorilla suit looks like he has less rhythm than a Norwegian Lutheran. He does manage to tear her sarong off, though, exposing her black panties. She ends up on the floor somehow and just when it looks like it's going to get really disgusting, it switches to backstage after the show, where there's some actual plot development involving a creepy former lover of the woman, a gun, and the guy in the gorilla suit, who breaks through a styrofoam wall just to be with the lady he loves. The ending will make you want to throw a brick through your tv set. This is so bad it actually transcends its title, existing in some sort of alternate universe of filmdom. Which, I guess, makes it an outsider film of the first order.

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