I Spit On Your Corpse (1974)

aka Girls for Rent, aka Fatal Pursuit

How bad is it? It's one of Al Adamson's better films, so not good at all.
Should you see it? Don't go out of your way, but sure, see it if it's available.

Not to be confused with the better "I Spit On Your Grave" or the worse "I spit On Your Corpse, I Piss On Your Grave," this usually gets seen by people who mistakenly think it's a horror film. It starts with a breakout from a women's prison in Mexico, then the murder of a politician and then an hour-long chase trying to eliminate a witness. Porn star Georgina Spelvin stars and many of Adamson's regulars, including his wife, make up much of the cast. There's more character development and tension than in most Adamson films (i.e. there's some), there's some topless fighting and there's one truly horrific scene where a mentally challenged man is shot in the head during sex. It's very sleazy, the chases involve Pintos and dune buggies and there's plenty of bad dialogue to go around.
