For those who dig Craven's Last House on The Left, I do herby say, groove on Candy Santchers. Released on the heels of LHOTL in '73-this dark comedy of errors is about a group of very naive and inept kidnappers who think they have formulated the perfect crime untril their threadbrare plot unravels like a cheap leisure suit.

This is pure 70's exploitation served up with a heaping of grindhouse cheese. I may go far as to say it is better, tho not as dark as LHOTL. It has moments of black comedy sprinkled throughout and no distracting inserts of slapstick schlock that almost killed Craven's flick. It has a bleak tone and downbeat ending which suits its Anti-Hollywood vibe.

I really do thnk this ranks up there with LHOTL. It may not be as brutal as LHOTL, but its black comedy is subtle, no outlandish,cartoonish slapstick.

This is a true forgotten gem.. definitely recommend it to any ex fan.. and make sure you take a look at Subversive's excellent DVD..

and even though I hold this movie in high regards, I think Last House on the Left is much better... though I wouldnt really compare the two.

THE CANDY SNATCHERS was a bit "made for TV" though. And not nearly as caustic as I was led to believe.

5/10

It's a good flick. It's definitely inspired by Last House, but is more "normal" for lack of a better word.
