When I listed “movies that scared me away from ever having a baby,” I forgot that one.
Street Carnage has the top 5 preg-sploitation flicks, including a couple I’ve never heard of:
Jerry Gross, the mastermind behind such drive-in classics such as I Drink Your Blood and The Cheerleaders, brings us this little slice of late-60s local drama with a trailer featuring the slogan, “TEENAGE MUTHA! MEANS NINE MONTHS-A TRUBBA!” The relatively tame high-school melodrama (made to deceptively look far more trashy in the film’s trailer) is centered around bubble-headed sexpot Arlene Sue and an attractive Euro-dame Sex-Ed teacher who spends most of the movie looking like she’d rather be in Dresden during the Allied bombings.
Arlene Sue gets knocked up and the crusading Sex-Ed teacher gets blamed for the information she’s imparted upon the students and then is nearly raped by the local high-school drug dealers.
And no, I had no idea before I found that link for I Drink Your Blood, that the late Sage Stallone was a “film preservationist.” Not quite like Scorcese, is, mind you. But according to this site, he was a principal at Grindhouse Releasing, which seems to concentrate on restoring Italian giallos and 70s cannibal and other exploitation stuff.
