Psychosexual torment.
14 January 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Troubled 20 year-old Terry Lambert(John Savage)returns from prison after serving two years for rape.His doting mother Thelma(Ann Sothern)runs a boarding house for old people but takes in a young girl Lori Cindy Williams).Terry can't control his violent impulses around women;in addition to his bitterness over the rape charge he thinks his mother is a tramp and is ashamed of his own illegitimacy.Repressed neighbor Louise(Luana Anders of "Dementia 13" fame)is attracted to Terry because of the danger he represents.Terry begins stalking the women who sent him to jail-the rape victim and his lawyer."The Killing Kind" is a disturbing 70's character study with three powerful murder scenes and overwhelming atmosphere of sexual tension.The acting is great and there are some short scenes of animal cruelty.8 out of 10.
