The Backside of Horror: Taylor Lacher, “Devil Times Five” (1974)

Let’s face it, half the fun of horror and exploitation is seeing some hot bodies frolicking around in the buff. And while I worship the female form, I believe exploitation definitely veers into the exploitive when only gorgeous women are on display while their male counterparts remain chastely buttoned up. Therefore, The Backside of Horror salutes the filmmakers and actors whom even up the score a bit by showing us instances of hot and juicy male flesh in their bloody celluloid fantasies.

geneSome guys don’t get a break. Even though beefy Rick (played by 70s television perennial Taylor Lacher) turns down the advances of the saucy Lovely (Carolyn Stellar) in the twisted 70s drive-in feature Devil Times Five, he still gets whacked by a group of sadistic children.

Maybe that’s because he does give us a view of his meaty man-globes – another terror film no-no!gene half butt

In an interesting side-note, Stellar is the mother of (future teen idol) Leif Garrett and (My Three Son‘s cutie) Dawn Lyn who play two of the unrepentant tots who eviscerate a house full of whining, drinking, back-stabbing adults in this truly trashy, semi-classic.

Until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!

  • 70s trash cinema is glorious, isn’t it? I never heard the expression “man globes” before. If I ever direct a horror movie (odds are long on that, owing to my lack of a career in the film business), I will throw in some nude beefcake for you. Man globes all around.
