What it is: Nudie
A woman is kidnapped by two criminals and leads the cops on a chase. Also, a geek escapes from a carnival.
Usually, when Something Weird Video would put two movies on a DVD, it would be billed as a double feature of sorts. This one is not announced on the cover of the DVD for GODMONSTER OF INDIAN FLATS, and was buried in the extras section, which certainly doesn’t make a case for its cinematic significance. I could argue how the plot is unbelievable and ridiculous, but if I did, I would be missing the point; the movie is a nudie, and any scene that doesn’t involve naked women should probably be considered as filler. The fantastic content is the geek, who looks like a man in very tacky makeup. For those not focused on the pulchritude on display, the highlight of the movie is how the geek’s incredible stupidity causes his own death. Not essential viewing.
