In what could only be described as Eddie Romero’s version of THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME, the 1973 sleazefest THE WOMAN HUNT finds our Filipino auteur assembling a bevy of beauties boasting big boobies by a really not-at-all-nice guy in order to hunt them down in the jungles. And who’s that there ready to save the day? Why naturally, it’s John Ashley, kids – during the midst of his co-producing/starring role ride with Romero – and he’s joined here by veteran character actor Sid Haig. Also starring the busty talents of Pat Woodell, Charlene Jones, Laurie Rose, and Lisa Todd. Ken Metcalfe and Eddie Garcia also star. Jack Hill co-wrote the story, Roger Corman served as co-executive producer and his New World Pictures banner distributed the title in the US.
I know some of you have been waiting for this, and I apologize for the delay. After a lot of work and filtering, I managed to convert my former rental NTSC VHS into something that resembles perfection. The cassette was too bright and had a hue to it unlike the UK videocassette or any of the trailers that were out there, so I carefully tried and tried again until I came up with this. And so, ta-da: my custom DVD-5 of THE WOMAN HUNT, complete with a custom menu and trailer I snatched from a fellow on YouTube (itself sourced from an SWV compilation).
