Horror and exploitation film icon Lynn Lowry (SHIVERS, THE CRAZIES, I DRINK YOUR BLOOD) is enjoying a career renaissance of late (as profiled in the pages of FANGORIA #296), and seems hellbent on reminding the world about her unique beauty and still-striking physical presence. Alongside the slew of new and upcoming features under her belt (she even contributed an effective cameo to the recent CRAZIES remake), Cult Epics is rereleasing a picture where we got to literally see what was under her belt: softcore pornslinger Radley Metzger’s notorious 1972 skin flick SCORE.
In the film, Lowry stars as a semi-innocent nymph who enters into a wild ménage with two other men and another woman, who claim “they’d mount a porcupine if the mood struck them.” And essentially, everyone does indeed mount everyone with the slightest of provocation in this funny, deeply weird and raunchy classic.
Cult Epics will be releasing the full, rarely seen, uncut and uncensored version on both DVD and Blu-ray on October 12, with the standard theatrical version coming October 26. Features (available on both releases) will include a vintage behind-the-scenes featurette, a new interview with Lowry and a commentary by Metzger and film historian Michael Bowen. Also of note is news that The Cinefamily, a group dedicated to spotlighting interesting and unusual films, will host a special screening of the uncensored SCORE at 8 p.m. Sunday, November 7 at the Silent Movie Theatre in Los Angeles (611 North Fairfax Avenue). A Q&A session with Metzger will follow the film.
Keep visiting Fangoria.com in the coming weeks for a new, exclusive interview with Lowry where she’ll discuss in detail her early days working on these classics of exploitation cinema. “I’ve never done any work that I’m not extremely proud of,” says Lowry. “And I absolutely adore myself in SCORE.” And be sure to visit Cult Epics’ official site for full SCORE specs and other information on their great, strange and eccentric releases.
