After watching it in a less inhebriated state than the last few times I've seen it, I'm now pretty sure that this was just some unfinished film SWV found in a box. Like the filmmaker's shot it realized how fucking horrible it was, then put it in a box where it sat until SWV found it. I also wonder if the Dragon Art Theater intro was tagged on by SWV just to give it some sort of context.

It's just so amazingly bad. It's really an endurance test. We double featured this with Aphrodisiac last night (which features gratuitous midget cheek pinching) and it was the best pairing ever.

APHRODISIAC is the De Renzy weed mondo with Holmes, right?

BAT PUSSY worship is a prime example of Boss Jane's cult leader capabilities. Not that it's undeserving of its reputation, mind you.

Ian Jane
02-27-2011, 08:25 PM
It's 100% deserving of its reputation. I noticed more mistakes and errors last night than ever before. It really is amazingly inept.

And Aprhodisiac does indeed have Holmes in it but I don't think De Renzey was involved, was he? He did Weed, which is a different movie (and non-pornographic).

Ian Jane
02-28-2011, 05:11 PM
The best part of the movie is when he asks whats her name 'Do you want me to fuck you in the butt' and she says, after a dramatic pause, 'no.'

You could tell she was thinking about it though. Like he'd asked her that many times before and she'd been okay with it but because he was doing such a bad job at 'sucking her pussy' this one particular night there would be no anal treat for Buddy this time around.

There's a whole backstory to these guys in my brain.

I read so much about Batpussy at the other board that I had to get a copy. My then wife and I watched it. After it was over she said "This is worse than the time we drove 3 hours to see Texas Chainsaw Next Generation". Haven't watched BatPussy since then.

Oh wow. I vaguely recall when the posting of a jpg from this movie got the Brains On Film forum shut down for days - until it removed that jpg.
I am still astonished that this not only was shot, but it went all the way to being exhibited in theaters. Syndicate connections can only go so far. I cannot believe this was a movie on which it went to the enforcement network.
I dare you (male) to watch this movie with your cock exposed! If it responds to imagery within, that should be discussed with your psychoanalyst. :bp:

The challenge is there if you allow Java ( not Javascript) to execute on J Meeting (https://www2.jmeeting.com/). Look for people in #exhibitionist.r.
I can't get Java to execute since it went to v8.11, but it is there.
On JMeeeting, you can exhibit yourself as much as you can.

"Somewhere John waters is green with envy that these would-be stars slipped through his fingers... The overweight, beehive-wearing, leading lady twangs and drawls her way through a tirade of improvised insults and personal attacks with her drunken male costar until you almost forget entirely that this couple are attempting to make a sex flick. This film is so bad it is awesome."

This review from a blog says it all. The dialog is amazing. I could listen to this movie without picture and almost love it as much. It reminds me of Raymond and Peter "Shut Up Little Man" meets a drunken porno that can't get it up.

This movie and dialogue are a work of pure art..intentional or not.

I am ashamed that there is an UNAPPRECIATION thread on this forum.....you philistines out there just don't GET art...This piece of work is a work of pure beauty...a deconstruction of the ideas of 'beauty' 'porn' and 'literature'...It forces us to confront our pre-determined ideas on what these three things actually MEAN and STAND FOR...It forces us to address their roles in society and the ways that they influence and affect us in our lives...

I feel sorry for you all and your primitive ways of thinking.

Randy G
12-07-2016, 07:51 AM
I'm sure Waters loves this and Warhol would have loved it too if he had a chance to see it. It isn't too far from his FUCK.

I do suspect that it is intended as camp, the randomness of the Batgirl sequences suggests that. Only if we could find the filmmaker!

The amount of bloopers and stuff would lead me to agree it was probably an unfinished / unedited movie that someone found the reels for....

Someone should set up a KICKSTARTER to remake this.....

No one knows anything about it, but not for lack of trying. I'm hoping this commentary is much more historically focused and discusses the whole regional XXX film scene in the early/mid 70s, from which this mysterious film emerged.

I had offered to do a new cover plus insert art for this and they (AGFA/SWV) seemed somewhat interested but I never heard back. I sure hope that the flip side is not my art from the DVD-R which I'm no longer happy with - that's why I offered to do a new one. Ryan's version is more or less what I had done only laid out a bit different. He's a much bigger name in alt comics than I am so I get it.

Looking forward to it nonetheless.

This may be old news, but for any fans of BAT PUSSY out there, Diabolik have the AGFA blu-ray up for pre-order now:

http://www.diabolikdvd.com/product/bat-pussy-agfa-blu-ray/

Description

A brand new 2K scan of the world’s first sexploitation parody!

The citizens of Gothum City are under attack by smut filmmakers and only one hero can help! Bat Pussy (Dora Dildo) hangs out in her secret headquarters (aka an outhouse). When her “twat begins to twitch,” warning her of imminent crime, Bat Pussy hops on her Holy Hippity-Hop to foil the grotesque sex schemes of un-happily married couple Buddy and Sam! Considered to be the first porn parody, BAT PUSSY is the no-fi sexploitation messterpiece of your wildest dreams. And also your most horrifying nightmares. The unidentified lunatic filmmakers have never been located, providing further proof that this movie was most likely made by extraterrestrials.

Bonus Materials

New 2K scan from the only surviving 16mm theatrical print!
Commentary track with Lisa Petrucci and Tim Lewis of Something Weird!
Crime-smut trailers and shorts from the Something Weird vault!

I don't even watch porn but I still felt obligated to watch BAT PUSSY when somebody sent it to me back in the dvdmaniacs heyday. I'm still a little emotionally scarred.

In my whole life the only porn I've watched is BAT PUSSY, half of DEBBIE DOES DALLAS when I was trying to sleep on a chair at a party and was surrounded by drunk people rendering me mostly immobile, THRILLER A CRUEL PICTURE, the beginning of INSIDE MARILYN CHAMBERS, and the hardcore inserts in BLACK EMMANUELLE. I think that's it. Probably not representative of the genre.

Also you need to see more porn. ;)


Thanks Ian. I've been reading your reviews for awhile (both here and on DVD Talk) but never delved into the Forum. When I checked it out this week I was having flashbacks to 2006. This is a great site, by the way.

Can it be 2007 instead? That was a better year for me. :haha:

Is it established that BAT PUSSY indeed played at the Dragon Art Theaters or was it simply released under that banner by SWV since the origin is unknown? I don't have a copy of this new BluRay and haven't heard the commentary so I'm in the dark as far as the background info covered there.

Reason I ask is because I was listening to the Dave Friedman commentary for SHE FREAK and he brings up Donn Davison, mentioning that in addition to his spook shows and film distribution biz he also worked in a boiler room(?) and since Dora Dildo's lair has that dank basement quality I thought that may be a possible connection between Mr. Davison and BP. I never assumed he actually "directed" BP because the movies he did make were more accomplished but maybe he was a producer and provided the location?

Shot in the dark. Again, trying not to make too much out of the fact that BP was originally on a Dragon Art Theater double feature tape.

I think SWV confirmed that they just added the Don Davison intro to their release and that it doesn't appear to have actually played at the Dragon Art Theater, but I could be remembering it wrong.

Amazing though that some play dates have surfaced and I can't wait to see Twilight Cowboy.

Amazing indeed. I can't imagine walking into a theater completely unaware of what was in store. I can't imagine/understand a lot of things regarding this film.

You think Buddy took his pals to see it? Somehow I think that he was real proud of his involvement.

Looks like it might also have played in MI in 1974 as Bat Lady. Again, full credit to Charles Devlin.

It also seems like VS may have another movie that the actress who played Bat Pussy/Dora Dildo starred in - Twilight Cowboy - possibly coming to ExploitationTV if they ever get that rolling again.

Here's a picture of the Melody Art Theater. It was a church at one point, naturally...

Shut down in '97 for illegal activity. Rad.

And of course Buddy took his friends to see it.

Buddy strikes me as the sort of person that would take his mother to see it... on a date. He's probably a senator now.

I thought I had posted this, but here’s Mike McCarthy’s extended notes on how he found BAT PUSSY and his ideas about its origins.

You did post it, it was one of a few posts lost in the server move.

Wow. Consider my mind blown. Bat Pussy is brilliant cinema. Its like watching a David Lynch film for the first time. I have so many unanswered questions. Number 1 being who the f**k was the intended f**k**g audience for this no good m****rf**k**g film? I've never had the pleasure of attending a theater with express purpose of masturbating in public, but I can't imagine this film providing the intended stimulus for that act. If this thing had run, I'd assume the theater would have a riot on their hands.

There is so much I have to say but I'm kinda saddened that I'm finding this film so late. I keep hearing that old Jim Gaffigan bit in my head about watching HEAT 6 years after it came out. I'm guessing plenty has been said about this film over the years. I'm glad there's a commentary track for me to dig into tonight.

Well, no one can see everything, right? And better late than never - the BP cult can always use new members, haha.

Bat Pussy is one of the greatest films to blur the line between documentary and fiction. It should be studied at film schools instead of Medium Cool and the like.

Some dirty muthafucka needs to make a sequel. In these dark times we need Bat Pussy more than ever.

So thrilled to have this on blu. It will sit proudly on my shelf next to Manos: Hand of Fate, two films I never would have thought would ever be released on blu!

I finally bit the bullet and ordered it. Despite desperate pleas of "darlin I luuh yuuh!" my wife outright refuses to watch this so it's appropriate that being off sick from work and the only person in the house, I've finally sat down and watched it. Jesus wept!

Words cannot describe this film. Traumatising. Oscar-worthy. Guaranteed to render the randiest man impotent.


The best part of the movie is when he asks whats her name 'Do you want me to fuck you in the butt' and she says, after a dramatic pause, 'no.'

That's my favourite part too. There were tears rolling down my eyes and it caused a massive coughing fit when I first saw this bit. That and the bit where a crew member burps loudly during an quiet moment.

My girlfriend and I watched this last night and have rarely laughed as hard and been in such awe. The drunken banter is some of the most otherworldly improv I've encountered and it nearly killed me when Buddy kept calling Bat Pussy "Bat Woman" until Sam corrects him mid-scene. We immediately watched it again with the commentary track (of which 80% is the group just laughing at the antics, which honestly seems fitting). This just shouldn't exist. It's really special.

This calls for further restoration. They should do a composite release using the two prints and re-release it with a different co-feature. Maybe in 4K? It's not like we wouldn't all re-buy it.

Do Buddy and Sam make up at the end? At least we all know that there was no way Buddy could attempt a pop shot so I can only hope that wasn't filmed later and edited in.

I love the fact that no one involved in the filming suggested that maybe they turn off the camera until Buddy is ready for action. It's like the director was his worst enemy.
