ORGY OF THE DEAD (1965)
Ed Wood only penned this travesty (based on his pulp paperback of the same name!) but it’s thrown together with that special kind of ineptitude that harkens all the way back to Bride of the Monster. A crusty, swollen-looking Criswell does his narration from the coffin schtick and introduces us, one-by-one, to no fewer than a dozen “dead” stripper set-ups. There’s not much to this but bump and grind burlesque – but thumbs up for the flapping boobs and awkward gyrations.

There’s some business about two young motorists who are captured (early Brad and Janet prototypes?), tied to a stake and “forced” to watch the feature length tit parade, a werewolf, a mummy and a frumpy Vampira stand-in.
