I got this rare Italian/American movie from a friend and I wasn't expecting much but really it was a good movie. Its the story of a family who is in financial troubles and the man they think that is going to help them, well isn't!! He wants the property and the house for himself. The mother and daughter are both sleeping with him and the son wants to kill him and that all adds together to make a great story! The Only cast member which I am going to make mention of is Shelley Winters, though not a good role for her she really shows her acting ability in this movie and I love it. So over all I think this movie is worth watching if you can find it, but be warned the soundtrack is not in sync with the film so when they speak on screen it's already a second past and it is a little distracting.
