I remember seeing this flick in the late '70's on the late, late movie. At the time I recall thinking it had the lowest production values I'd ever seen. Of course, I didn't know what production values were then and I hadn't yet seen " Werewolves on Wheels" or a host of other films . Even though it was such a cheapie I enjoyed the plot--Most especially the surprise ending. That movie had stuck in my mind because of the low budget and when I saw "reservoir Dogs" for the first time it seemed familiar. I finally remembered the name of the film that gave me that eerie feeling of having seen a flick before and now IMDb gives me a forum where I can comment on it. Tarantino has seen every cheapie flick ever made and it's obvious that he loves to do his little homages in his films. It seems clear to me that he remembered "day of the Wolves" and, like me, saw that there was a good story hidden behind those terrible production values. It's so great to have a director who loves all those outre loser movies that came out which had a little gem hiding in the crap. It's really great that he can pay his homages to those films and make it work. Watch "day of the wolves", if you can ever find it, and you'll most likely see what I saw in the comparison. Thanks, Quentin.
