Warner Archive Week! kicks off at Trailers from Hell, with director and TFH creator Joe Dante introducing "Sex Kittens Go to College."

The psychotronic title is perhaps exploitation virtuoso Albert Zugsmith’s greatest gift to cinema. But ultimately, no film could live up to the forbidden delights promised although this one certainly tries. Anticipating Zugsmith’s gradual descent into total sleaze, this bizarre clunker features a ramshackle robot named “Thinko” (voiced by Al himself) who draws extra duty in the film’s alternate “International version” surrounded by a bevy of topless strippers. The diligent folks at Warner Archives have gifted us with this uncensored edition for their long-awaited (by Mamie Van Doren and bongo-playing chimp fans) stellar dvd release.
