Interesting only as a curiosity
3 September 1999 | by (SE PA) – See all my reviews

One of the few Cheri Caffaro movies. Yes, she gets tied up again and abducted nude wrapped up in a sleeping bag. The movie is very heavy-handed in what's supposed to be social comment for the early 70s. Altogether pretty dismal for a movie, except for when Ms. Caffaro is on. Even Lana Wood (Natalie's sister) can't do much. Still, I picked the tape up used for five dollars so I don't feel too badly
