Great film, Blair plays Barby, one of her first official role

An obnoxious, bloody, exploitative attempt at social relevancy which sees a group of rich folk traveling to a getaway in northern Michigan. Here all the sick decadence of the group surfaces in the space of a weekend. Orgies, killings, and other gross happenings are paraded before the camera.

Linda Blair plays the character Barby here, she is only a child but she got the eyes of the an angel and the voice of a goddess. She play the party very well. Nobody would know that this little child will have the part in one legendary horror film named The Exorcist after this film.
