I guess I did kill him.
3 August 2013 | by (Leesburg, FL) – See all my reviews

Restored classic; one of the infamous video nasties banned in Britain.

Those looking for the juicy parts that were excised by the censors will be disappointed, as the stuff, even the castration with a razor blade, is tame by today's standards.

The film will be a little talkie as it is a tale of an abused child's descent into madness.

In a constant state of inebriation, Molly (Millie Perkins) suffers numerous flashbacks of abuse and pain.

Director Matt Cimber achieved his greatest status a couple of films later with three Razzie nominations for Butterfly with Pia Zadora.
