As exploitation movie titles go, Dear God No!should be up for some sort of award. But what sounds like a 70s censor-baiter was actually released in 2011, a tribute to a lost regional drive-in film from 1976 that doesn’t rely heavily on computer gimmicks, and cuts to the core of what made these low-budget films shockingly fun. Shot entirely on Super-16mm Fuji film and using equipment from the era, Dear God No! is a drive-in & grindhouse lovers dream. No pretty actors- just a rocking original soundtrack, bikers, babes and blood, and as many naked breasts as the script would allow.
Outlaw motorcycle gang The Impalers tri-state rape and murder spree ended in a bloody massacre with rival club Satan’s Own. The surviving members sought refuge in a secluded cabin deep in the North Georgia mountains. What first must of seemed like easy prey for a home invasion, became a living nightmare of depravity and violence. A young innocent girl being held captive may hold the key to the twisted secrets locked in the basement and the killing machine feasting on human flesh in the forest outside.
Does it work, though? Ain't It Cool News certainly seems to think so, hence their enthusiasm: "Dear God No! will have you out of your seat and cheering, I guarantee. Everything from ultimate gross out gore to Nazi science, Nixon strippers, all kinds of gnarly biker violence, deviant S&M, a hick conspiracy nut, and of course Bigfoot are the mismatched ingredients that make up this odd little movie... Dear God No! is downright fantastic." Alrighty, then.
Dear God No! will be released on DVD in the UK as a "Two-Disc Imapler Edition" on 14th January 2013 by Monster Pictures at the RRP of £13.27.
