Necromania (1971)

Apparently this is Ed Wood's last film. What a way to finish. Far from his days as the enthusiastic no-talent wunderkind of the '50s, Wood directs this with all the care and interest of a drunken uncle at a wedding. There's no plot and the sex is aggressively unerotic to the point of amusement (all performers go so far out of their way to avoid the hardcore stuff that it gives the idea that everyone's genitals are radioactive). Enough beer might make this funny, but you know what? I tried that, and it only seemed pathetic and sad. At least it's short.

Grade: D-
