Oddball Films wants to give a special shout-out to Noel Lawrence and his new picture Sammy-Gate. The film is a dark political satire about how Sammy Davis, Jr. caused Watergate. How the hell did he do that? You will need to the see the film, but the twisted plot involves The Mafia, J. Edgar Hoover, Howard Hughes, and the Church of Satan. 

70s retro-philes take note! Sammy-Gate doesn’t just take place in the bad ol’ days of the Nixon era. The film looks like it had been stored in a basement since 1973. Shot on vintage 35mm Panavision gear and lenses in Cinemascope, the footage was pushed extra stops to give it that dirty grindhouse look we cinephiles know and love.  Additionally, Sammy-Gate provides a visual feast of seizure-inducing psychedelic visuals as well as a dizzying collage of obscure and eye-popping archival footage from the Vietnam War and Nixon Administration. 

At the moment, the filmmakers are doing a Kickstarter to raise completion funds for the picture. So, if you have some spare change lurking between the cushions of your couch, they are offering some awesome rewards for donors, including stuff from Gidget Gein (of Marilyn Manson), author Darius James, cult director J.X. Williams, and psychedelic rock outfit Spindrift.
