So bizarre it's almost fascinating to watch
19 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie opens with a nude woman dying on screen. Detectives Dave Walsh and Ed White try to find her murderer. It seems she was involved in the beatnik scene which leads to LOTS of "humorous" encounters with various characters as the bodies pile up. Also Walsh gets involved with anthropologist Janet Lynd who's investigating beatniks for a paper. It all leads to an ending where the killer is revealed to be no one we even met! Originally this was pretty dull. So scenes with a totally different cast were added. The murders (all off screen) were added and are pretty gruesome. There are flashes of sex and nudity and there's also a black cat whose brainwaves are affected by the killer who changes genders. Seriously. It's so ridiculous and over the top it's fun to watch out. However it's a bad movie with terrible acting and a stupid plot. For bad movie lovers only.
