Sleazy but not much else
7 September 2009 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Albert (the deliciously named Zooey Hall, previously seen on ABC's "The New People") escapes from an insane asylum and heads home to kill his mother. See, Albert is a believer that - as The Cramps would say - all women are baddddd! He arrives only to find that she is not home. Naturally, he takes the time to kill the maid right before the maid's daughter Annie shows up. Enchanted by the 10-year-old, Albert takes Annie away in the hopes of marrying her and keeping her pure. Not much can be gained from this sleazy little flick outside of its classic retitling and some gawking at the 70s aesthetics. The film does have some creepy elements (Albert's fixation on this young girl), but director Paul Leder (A*P*E) isn't about to explore them any deeper than face value. There are some nice moments, however, delivered in the film's final minutes in a darkened mannequin factory.
