About Crackhouse
This film may have been funny in parts but overall it was wrong!I had the misfortune of seeing around age 9.It was supposed to be about a girlfriend and boyfriend that tried to escape slum life but were confronted with the harsh realities of street life-particularly gangs and drugs. I had no idea what I was getting into; and was not looking forward to it. It scarred me for life! They would have been better of just making a straight "hood" or"porno" film anyway. This subject matter here was too serious to be trivialized for sexual kicks.Also, it was bad enough that the girls were drug addicts but they were also sex slaves.Yet another topic that is far from a joke.Other films at least show female drug addicts with some agency and choice about the levels they are willing to stoop to.This film did not even do that.I also did not like the fact that the main villains were mostly black. I am not saying you do not have black men that are this cold.But people seethe black villains all the time.Law Abiding, honest, compassionate black men DO exist. You did have a Latino and White villain; but for the most part,the black men are the villains once again. Anyway, I am not one to think that all films with serious themes should never be funny or entertaining;But this was nothing but a freaky porno film masquerading as an anti-drug message film. Like school on Sunday, just nothing classy about it ;but then again this film obviously made no pretense of going for that. Fine, but this film was a trip!I can't think of any films similar to this one off the top of my head. I have stumbled across films where they have used prison films as sex exploitation films but they did not always disgust me the way this film did. In summary, this film was a hot straight to DVD mess!It gets your attention, but then again car wrecks have the sinking ability to do that too.
