Snuff (1976) (part 8 of 9)
Cut to the palatial municipal building estate of Horst and Horst’s Dad. Horny Horst, some chick, and another guy with long greasy hair and an ascot are all sitting on the front porch laughing joyously, letting us know it’ll soon be time for them to die.
They make forced laughter for a good long time, then Ascot Guy says, “Believe me, you don’t know my wife! She is absolutely insatiable!” Well, looking at who she’s married to, I think I can believe it. And then they all laugh some more. Boy, I sure wish I could have heard the lead-up to that punch line.
Ascot Guy’s wife tells Horst that her husband loves to embarrass her. She puts her hands on Horst’s shoulders as he returns to Laughing Idiot Mode.
Laughing Idiot says, “Haha! Then you don’t mind her then having an affair with me?” [!!] Good God. Was there some kind of filmmaking contest where the sleaziest entry won? That’s about the only way to explain this movie’s existence. Ascot Guy says, “Not with you, not with any other man!”
“And believe me,” Ascot Guy says, “There’s been a lot of men!” The woman chimes in with, “Plenty of men!” Ooh, that’s the girl for me.
