AGFA and Something Weird twitch with BAT PUSSY (Review)

The grungiest, dirtiest film that put storefront theater films back on the cultural map BAT PUSSY comes to Blu-ray in a 2K scan of the only surviving (possibly only existing) 16mm print.  While virtually nothing is known of when or where this film was made, it may very well be the first porn parody ever.  When Dora Dildo's twat twitches, she knows crime is afoot in Gotham City and assumes her alternate identity as Bat Pussy and bounces across town on her hippity-hop to root out the criminals: in this case, masochistic train wreck of a couple Buddy and Sam who have the tenacity to make a porn film without her.
