The original UK cinema version was cut by around 6 minutes by the BBFC to remove a bathtub masturbation sequence and to heavily edit the murder scenes and shots of bloody bodies, and the film later ended up on the DPP 72 list of banned video nasties. In 2000 the film was finally released in the UK and was cut by 1 min 46 secs, with edits being made to a scene of a naked girl being chased and killed with a nail gun. See more »
I love the age of DVD. I had been looking endlessly for this film on videotape to no avail, then along comes the special edition DVD. The film details the murders of "sinful" women who perform "unnatural acts" by a madman who has recently lost his own daughter.
It has been said that Cameron Mitchell's performance is "over the top", but I don't believe so. To his credit, I think he did a fine job and brought both pain and depth to his performance. He could still deliver even in the twilight of his career. Happily, Cameron Mitchell got to go out on top with an outstanding performance in the film "My Favorite Year".
The cast is good, the story disturbing and the 70s fashions are enough to damage your retinas. Order pizza, grab a beer, call some friends and enjoy the show.
