365 Movies Day #20 "Six String Samurai"
This flick is a trip. Imagine an alternate time line in which the cold war went hot during the prime of rock and roll. A recently deceased Elvis Presley (the king of Vegas) has left a throne vacant and one of the top contenders is our story's hero...Buddy Holly?
Guitar slinging sword wielding badassery and a beautifully shot homage to the exploitation film. Features some cool music and appearances by the Red Elvises as well. Oh, and HvZ co-star Rheagan Wallace plays little Peggy Cleaver. If you like weird, this one is for you. I'm totally baffled that Jefferey Falcon didn't do another film after this.
