Ed Wood's "Orgy of the Dead" ...



Text taken from soon to be published "Ed Wood Bible" - for more information, please click here ...


"Lacking the charisma and optomism needed to get backers for his projects, he was forced to work as a hired lackey for other directors and their low-rent sleaze pictures.


That led to Ed's most well known post Urge projects, working as the screenwriter and second unit director on Stephen Apostolof's bizzare horror striptease masterpiece, Orgy of the Dead. The film stars Criswell and a blatant Vampira ripoff named Ghoulita as the God and Goddess of the Dead who ultimately decide who enters the realm of the dead and who is destined to remain. The deciding factor? How good they can strip in a graveyard.


At least, that's what the film is probably about.


It's hard to understand the nonsensical script and it's hard to stay awake through the atrocious stripteases. Worse, Criswell is so aged at this point in his career that you actually believe there's a chance he might keep over and die before the film's end. Thankfully, what the film lacks in acting, dialogue, and coherance, the film more than makes up for them with the amazing score provided, or more likely stolen, by the Chilean Symphony Orchestra."


I love this fucking movie. That being said, I hardly ever see it. I bought a cheap copy of the soundtrack, and when I say soundtrack I mean a cd of the audio of the film, dailogue and all, and that is when I came to the realization that although the film is almost impossible to sit through, simply listening to the moody longue music and the stiff, bizarre dialogue and the strange misplaced sound effects is an incredible listening experience. The film suddenly transforms from monster nudie crap into one of the most amazing transcendental pieces that you could ever listen to.


Here's a few tracks. Listen to some of it for yourself ...
