Exploitation film maven Bob Cresse goes full drag as the matriarch of “Granny Good’s School for Good Girls” in this delightfully silly “nudie cutie,” which somehow mashes the “old dark house” monster movie, lowbrow comedy, the rock & roll dance party and the peep show, in eye-popping candy colors.
A forgotten curio in the history of trash cinema, House on Bare Mountains is an early 60s nudie-cutie where Hollywood models meet monsters and the rest is mayhem. Naïve dramatic vignettes entail wildly inappropriate excuses for nudity—as the poster says, it was shot in “Nuderama” after all!
