Black Shampoo Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P85149~Greydon Clark~greydonclark]] has mined almost every exploitation genre from horror ([[Feature~V42891~Satan's Cheerleaders~satanscheerleaders]]) to T&A ([[Feature~V26615~Joysticks~joysticks]]) to lambada ([[Feature~V18159~The Forbidden Dance~theforbiddendance]]). Here, he turns his attention to blaxploitation, transforming the mainstream comedy [[Feature~V44074~Shampoo~shampoo]] into a story about a black playboy ([[Performer~P16884~John Daniels~johnrdaniels]]) who is both a hairdresser and a skilled fighter. [[Performer~P16884~Daniels~johnrdaniels]] battles gangsters in brutal fight scenes involving chainsaws and pool-cue impalements. If that isn't enough, the requisite sex, torture, and homophobia are brought in as well. [[Performer~P85149~Clark~greydonclark]]'s previous genre foray, [[Feature~V3717~The Bad Bunch~thebadbunch]], had been released to several theaters as [[Feature~V103873~Nigger Lover~nigger]], which should give some clue as to the mentality at work. The director returned to racial themes in 1989 with [[Feature~V45032~Skinheads: The Second Coming of Hate~skinheads:thesecondcomingofhate]]. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
