“Witness if you dare, the world’s only underground kinky art porno horror film, complete with four men, three women, and a gorilla. Ecstasy so great that all heaven and hell becomes just one big old Shangri-La! […] With the initial setup of an atmospheric gothic horror tale – dark stormy night breakdown featuring a creepy old house on the hill – it quickly turns into a bawdy, graphic, and darkly comic orgy. Dead drunk, horny, and delirious Marion Eaton commands the screen as one of cinema’s weirdest female characters, while George Kuchar falls madly in love with a gorilla. […] The most dialogue you will ever see in porn and the most porn you will ever see in a melodrama, THUNDERCRACK! is a volatile marriage of genres, fluid sexuality, and depraved perversion.” –D.A. Johnston, FRAMELINE
