The film was listed in the UK as an official video nasty. It was eventually released (as "Drop Dead Dearest") in 1986 by Heron Video after 1 min 6 secs of BBFC cuts to edit shots of head blows and clubbings, and to shorten a scene of a woman's dead body being sexually caressed. See more »
Not a very good movie based on an infamous true story
This is a poorly-acted and sloppily-made film based on the infamous Demeter murder case that happened in Mississauga back in 1973. Just a couple of years before, the same filmmaker made Recommendation for Mercy, a fictionalized account of the Steven Truscott case.
This movie takes liberties with some of the facts, but is substantially true to the real facts. Peter Demeter was an immigrant real estate developer that got rich and married a former model. When she was found dead in their garage, he was arrested and, with the help of friends-turned-prosecution witnesses, convicted of either committing or contracting her murder. An award-winning book, By Persons Unknown, written by George Jonas and Barbara Amiel, is an excellent account of the case.
The print that I saw was old and scratchy. It is not a remarkable film in any sense, but it is an interesting take on a small piece of Canadian history.
