Storyline

After her prostitute mother and her john are beaten to death while they are asleep in bed, teen-aged Ellie Masters is sent to an isolated orphanage run by Mrs. Deere and her handyman. Taking an avid interest in her welfare is detective Calvin Carruthers. Taking almost no interest at all, is social worker Harold Mullins who is completely under Mrs. Deere's thumb. Lots of unpleasant surprises are in store for Ellie, not the least of which is the fact that Mrs. Deere and her handyman are both brutal sadists, who run the orphanage like a concentration camp and the strong possibility that her mother's hammer-wielding killer is now stalking her.

I'd like to preserve you all just as you all.
10 August 2011 | by (Leesburg, FL) – See all my reviews

Melody Patterson spent three years on "F Troop" and did a couple of other shows and a couple of movies, including this one. She didn't do much after that, and there was a 16-year absence before a final film.

She is a young girl here whose mother died, and now she is placed in a creepy foster home run by Oscar winner Gloria Grahame, who you may remember as Violet on It's a Wonderful Life.

Of course, I did not like the social worker who placed Ellie (Patterson). As a former placement official myself, I did not have sex with the group home owners like he did.

Vic Tayback (Mel from Alice) is a detective who has a thing for Ellie, and so does the drunken handyman.

Ellie soon runs afoul of the owner (Graham) and her handyman (Len Lesser). Graham is sadistic and running afoul of her is not advised.

The twists at the end were the best part of the movie. I won't give them away, but they are really funny.
