    The Violent Years is absurd, but not boring. And the same is true of the films Mr. Wood is most famous for, all of which might be considered science fiction/fantasy/horror. The fact is that Wood couldn’t help himself from straying into the fantastical, whether it was appropriate to his story or not.
