Trivia

Answering many critics' (and viewers') remarks that the film was so incoherent and disjointed it seemed as if it wasn't finished, star Mary Woronov (who was married to the film's director, Theodore Gershuny), stated that it was exactly what happened--the production ran out of money before it could be completed but the distributor released it anyway.

Incredibly Inept & Boring to Boot...
9 August 1998 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

An exasperatingly bad film with a generic plot about a mad scientist's mind -controlling drug known as "Kemek". Poor production values, non-existent direction, & a terrible score are only a few of the highlights. The only thing that makes this even remotely watchable is Mary Woronov. This is definitely not one of the better low-budget flicks she made in the 70's.
