On July 12, THE DEUCE-Jockeys – along with their pal Chris Poggiali from TEMPLE OF SCHLOCK – spend a night at sleazy porn palace Victory Theatre for 1978’s TEEN LUST!
Written, produced and directed by busy and beloved character actor James Hong, this episodic, idiosyncratic bad-taste comedy about a group of high school newly-grads consistently surprises by giving equal time to their creepy parents, neighbors, clergymen, and local law enforcement…
Filmed in 1977 under the title SO LONG, COLUMBUS HIGH, but completed as THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, it failed to find an audience upon its release in 1978 under that title… and spent the next five years haunting drive-ins under yet another two titles… finally hitting The Deuce as TEEN LUST on September 9th, 1983: top-lining a triple bill at The Victory with GETTING IT ON and THE CREEPER…
“…authentically trashy….amounts to a John Waters movie made by a retarded midwesterner.” – Sleazoid Express
