Review: Forced Entry (1973)

This time I’m deep down on the lower end of the scale. Nasty violence and hairy sex with Harry Reems.

A shell-shocked Vietnam vet continues with his own war in the streets of New York. Working at a gas station, he follows his victims home for some rape and kill time.

The star of the notorious “Deep Throat” heads the cast as the Vietnam vet sicko. It’s a gritty and perverted piece of grindhouse filth. The use of war footage and the shabby state of the film reel adds to the nastiness. It reminds me of “Driller Killer” and “Combat shock”, but the hardcore porn makes it more unsettling. It’s a good social commentary and Costello handle the direction fine. Harry Reems does an ok job as the crazed vet (this is the only movie he regret doing, and also the only one I’ve seen without his moustache). It’s not much of a plot and it gets a bit draggy and repetative. It’s a nasty piece of grindhouse history that makes you wanna have a shower afterwards(…and be sure you lock the door!!).
