A man tries to uncover an unconventional psychologist's therapy techniques on his institutionalized wife, while a series of brutal attacks committed by a brood of mutant children coincides with the husband's investigation.
The residents of a suburban high-rise apartment building are being infected by a strain of parasites that turn them into mindless, sex-crazed fiends out to infect others by the slightest sexual contact.
A cop chases two hippies suspected of a series of Manson family-like murders; unbeknownst to him, the real culprits are the living dead, brought to life with a thirst for human flesh by chemical pesticides being used by area farmers.
A man's wife is under the care of an eccentric and unconventional psychologist who uses innovative and theatrical techniques to breach the psychological blocks in his patients. When their daughter comes back from a visit with her mother and is covered with bruises and welts, the father attempts to bar his wife from seeing the daughter but faces resistance from the secretive psychologist. Meanwhile, the wife's mother and father are attacked by strangely deformed children, and the man begins to suspect a connection with the psychologist's methods. Written by

This film is one of the last mediums through which to see the interior of the old Toronto Police Headquarters on 590 Jarvis Street in Toronto, as the Headquarters was re-located to a new building in 1988 and the older building (shown in the film) was torn down to make room for condominiums in 2007.

OK first I have to say, I watched this movie thinking how bizarre thanks in part to Oliver Reed's sometimes campy and in my opinion sometimes over the top performance as a strange doctor of mental health helping patients deal with anger, and childhood abuse. There are moments of unintentional humor most notably is a headline in a news article that appears midway in the movie when whats behind some of the murders occurring is brought to light...no spoilers here...but the moment appears as Art Hindle, who portrays Samantha Eggar's estranged husband, is drinking some coffee and reading the paper. It was just so out there in a way that it made me laugh....This is not to say this movie isn't downright scary. Basic plot is Samantha Eggar is this loony tunes who may or may not be abusing her young daughter and is in therapy. As she lets out her pent up anger from childhood and adulthood in sessions with Reed, playing her doctor, these little mutant children dish out murderous and gruesome vengeance on her enemies. Just why these little monsters are on a killing spree and where they come from is at the top of horror heights and be assured the last 15 minutes of this flick is pretty damn scary and disturbing as father, daughter, and doctor all face mother's rage and a little something else. Lets just say "Alien" ain't got nothing on Samantha Eggar. Creep-out city.....rent this and watch it in the dark....and ignore the noise coming from your kitchen...
