ok check it out... TV_Obscura

Despite homework assignments, my bullshit 16mm short, and lots of parties, I still got out to QT's Grindhouse Film Festival in time to catch the last 25 minutes of Grave of the Vampire and then the entirety of the rare treat Jailbait Babysitter, of which nothing was written about on the internet at all - I did extensive searches. Both John Hayes movies are ripe with directing problems (Grave I've seen before) yet each have their moments, especially Babysitter, the tale of a virgin on the run, trying to fit into an adult world as a wannabe escort. It's more outrageous than the synopsis sounds, believe me, in fact you might need to take a shower after watching the old and hairy meet the under age and innocent in a 70's bedroom.

I just got some rabbit ears for my TV and I do get some LA channels now, a whole bunch of them in fact. On that subject check out the yahoo group TV_Obscura that discusses 70's television including all those made-for-TV horror movies that have cult followings today.
