Storyline

An unknown man sits alone in a cinema watching a movie. The movie is about Sylvester, a man who is kidnapped in a semi-conscious state by Wanda and her lover Greta from a car crash. They tie up him up in their bed. Wanda then hypnotizes him and has him whipped. Soon enough, she hypnotizes one of her women - the lesbian Zelda - to rape him. Greta then rapes him herself until her jealous lover Wanda catches her. Finally, an escaped mental patient breaks in and sets Sylvester free. Both men find Wanda's LSD stash and drug the women. When Sylvester tries raping Wanda, she manages to once again hypnotize him and then The Maniac, who is taken back to his institution. Wanda erases Sylvester's memories and sets him free. The man from the cinema has his car crashed and it is hinted it is now his fate to be kidnapped by Wanda and Greta. Written by Anonymous

Possibly the weirdest nudie cutie flick I've seen yet
8 October 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

"Wanda, the Sadistic Hypnotist" is possibly the weirdest nudie cutie film I've yet seen, and I'm including "The Acid Eaters" and "Psyched by the 4D Witch" in that statement. Its moronic beyond belief and yet refuses to follow any logical laws of narrative cinema. Don't make any attempt to follow the plot, because you're just bound to get a headache. When watching this kind of flick, I wonder if the makers were attempting to create something so surreal or if the weirdness by purely accidental. I'm leaning somewhere in the middle. They were attempting to cash in on the hallucinogenic generation by including LSD as a plot device, but the horrible production values and complete lack of continuity add another degree of surrealism. Plus, there's some interesting instances of meta-fiction involved (the film constantly references its a film).

This is a strange flick, but don't mistake it to be anything of actual quality. Its horribly directed with lots of over-the-top acting. The director has no idea how to keep a pace going or include anything resembling continuity. Fortunately, I'd have it no other way when dealing with this psychedelic nudie cutie. There's several sex scenes that go on for a bit too long, but the absurdity and the hilarious dialog make it completely worth watching for fans of this kind of crap. Its one of the most entertaining products I've seen from Something Weird in a long while, and you know thats saying a lot. (7/10)
