Tagline: Young Girls Kidnapped by Fiend!

Plot: Guy in a pickup truck kidnaps 5 women off the street, intending to make them his sex slaves.

My rating: 4/10

Will I watch it again? No.

I LOVES me some exploitation and Uschi Digard.  They go so well together.  She had an amazing body back then (I'm sure she still looks smashing).  Too bad she's too old now to have my babies...or is she?  I'd still like to give it a shot, Uschi, if you're reading this...

THE BIG SNATCH sounds like a blast.  The plot, tons of gratuitous nudity and much of it is Uschi, revenge, sleaze, low budget goodness, bad acting, etc.  It should be ripe for a great time but it isn't.  The biggest problem is that it's an hour and twenty five minutes long.  Sure, it's great if you like your simulated sex scenes go on forever but geez.  There comes a point to where you want something else to happen.  No kidding, if you trim this down to a half hour, you might just have a tolerable flick.  For me, Uschi, the title and plot were enough to pull me in but there were some side things I really liked.  There's one chick who is so bad it's GREAT.  Her abduction scene on the sidewalk had me howling it was so inept.  She literally sees the guy who is going to kidnap her and, before he does anything, she drops her bag of potato chips and walks off camera as he approaches her.  Their timing was way off.  All of the girls give up and in way too soon.  These two guys were like Jedi-fucking-masters when it came to getting their way.  The WTF ending was fun but it didn't make any sense.  One of the girls turns out to be a lesbian and forces the other four to stay as her captive play things.  There were four of us watching this last night and we were all bored to tears by the time that happened.  Regardless of how much things might not make sense, it doesn't come close to approaching the WTF moments in PROMETHEUS (2012).  Get your copy of THE BIG SNATCH from Something Weird Video.  You know you want it.
