The Mini-Skirt Mob (1968)

The film, featuring Harry Dean Stanton as “Spook” (read about H.D Stanton month HERE), opens with a weird intro of horse parades and rodeos to explain the roots of the gang.

Jeff Logan, Rodeo star, is honeymooning with his new bride in a camper when his old gang shows up . Miffed that Jeff has decided to quite, and fueled by the Mob leader’s jealousy of the new wife, the gang picks a fight and ends up beating up the happy couple. Jeff runs them off with a shotgun. All seems settled and the bride and groom plan to continue on to the ranch…Unfortunately for them, the gang has other plans. In classic horror film style, the gang begins a tyrade of attacks and after the death of LG (as a result of trying to run the camper off the road with the bikes) sabotage the car, and end up with the couple trapped like sitting ducks in the camper, while they keep watch from a hilltop…

“What is this any how? We was going on a party, now two of us is dead.” -Spook (Harry Dean Stanton)

There are some unexplained bits, like a Cub Scout troop that witnesses the murder, and illusions to the cops being hot on the trail, but really these never pan out, and it all culminates in the propane tank exploding on the camper from beer bottle molotov cocktails, and a pretty fun motorcycle chase down of the couple on foot at the end, where Spook (stanton) gets taken down, and the mild mannered bride chooses to let Shane (Mini-Skirt Mob leader) fall to her death, rather than saving her.

“Brown socks with black pants, that was it, the magic spell was broken. Are you like that Jeff? -wife

-Corinna Mantlo
