This piece short piece was written before the unfortunate demise of Woolworths.

I used to love visiting the Newport store, where you could always find some quirky cult oddity lurking amongst the cheap rip off re-makes of Disney cartoons, ancient and exceptionally unarousing erotic thrillers starring Jeff Fahey and those riveting Carp Fishing videos.

Who can complain about Driller Killer, complete with the directors cynical commentary, for 97p?

"Here's a sleazy effort I found in Woolworths for one measily pound...

When a pugnacious teacher and with gaggle of under dressed teenage students in her care, find themselves stranded in a remote corner of California during a school trip, they become the target of a two textbook evil bikers who are intent on getting their sick minded kicks any way they can...

This is a great example of mid 70s exploitation grittiness in the Last House on the Left style. The bad guys are the kind of cliched scumbags that always turned up in these cheap grindhouse movies, while the girls fulfil their roles as unwilling victims energetically. Violent, sexually dubious and definitely lacking in political correctness, it's no Citizen Kane but it's a scratchy, guilty pleasure all the same.

Lead low life Al is a kind of Diet Pepsi version of Krug from the aforementioned Last House; a deranged sociopath whose a slave to mans basest instincts, while marginally less reprehensible brother Pete can't control his sick sibling and instead joins him in a downward spiral into torture and murder.

Obviously, this isn't a good movie in the accepted sense of the word, but for fans of cash strapped, sleazoid excess, it scores on all counts, with OTT acting, plot holes and a lack of film logic that will delight fans of wrong headed low rent trash."
