Bloody Mama is a 1970 film centered around the notorious Barker gang - a family mob which terrorized the city of Chicago during the 1920's. The Barker gang is infamous among many since it was unconventionally run by a woman: Kate "Ma" Barker. This gritty, depression-set film was directed by Roger Corman - a director famous for his work on low-budget films such as The Little Shop of Horrors, Death Race 2000, and The Intruder. Bloody Mama follows the Barkers as they conspire to harm the world and profit from it's losses. Meet Arthur (Clint Kimbrough), Herman (Don Stroud) the Sadist, Fred the Bisexual (Robert Walden), and a crazy, glue-sniffing Lloyd (Robert DeNiro). Tying them all together, of course, is Kate "Ma" Barker (Lisa Jill) - a woman who's psychotic state is most likely attributable to her abusive past. Be sure to catch a bony, 20-something Robert DeNiro in one of his first mob films. Two thumbs up!
