More Movies You Never Heard Of! kicks off at Trailers from Hell, with screenwriter Josh Olson introducing "An American Hippie In Israel."

Practically begging to be a cult film, this 1972 Israeli comedy featuring murderous mimes, bloodthirsty sharks and a Vietnam vet shipwrecked with a band of hippies has been described as “a serious candidate for the worst movie of all time”. Written, produced and directed by one-shot wonder Amos Sefer, the film was also a perfect candidate for the Grindhouse Film Festival where it was revived in August 2013 followed by a three-disc (!) Blu-ray set from Grindhouse Releasing. Also known in the U.S. as The Hitchhiker. NSFW.
