Hillbillies in a Haunted House

They'll Scare Your Pants Off!

Released in 1967, with the DVD coming out in 2000

A couple of Country and Western singers and their manager are on their way to Nashville when car trouble leads them to a mysterious house. There’s ghosts, spies, and a secret rocket fuel formula. What’s not to like? It’s got blondes, iron maidens, sing-a-longs, and a plot right out of Scooby Do. Surprisingly, it’s a sequel to the also-unheard-of Las Vegas Hillbillies. I would say I didn’t like the movie, but it’s so innocently hackneyed that I can’t call it terrible. Really bad, yes. But not terrible. After all, how many other Country Spy Sci-Fi musical movies are there? And of course, if you’re going to be an evil villain, you should have a pet gorilla (man in a bad gorilla suit). Doesn’t everybody? Definitely in Plan 9 territory.
