Carl Walker Jr, and Jameison Marsh are two wealthy and spoiled young men whom date and degrate women just for their own twisted, misogynist enjoyment. When men spot Jane Collins, a young and naive newcomer to Los Angeles, they kidnap her from her apartment and hold her prisoner in the dark and damp basement of an abandoned warehouse where they take out their carnal desires and rages against this beautiful, blond, defenseless woman.

Saw this on DVD (along with SCUM OF THE EARTH) and was actually expecting it to be even sleazier after reading about it. The main character is a complete sociopath but this was fairly well-made. Good music some of the time and the acting was decent, especially Byron Mabe (who directed some films). The lead girl looked perfect and was completely believable (not from acting; just being the type). A 5 out of 10. Best performance = Byron Mabe.
This would have been completely unwatchable in color, but B/W lends itself to this kind of material. The barbarous freedom of the two young men is pretty frightening (especially in '65). I've seen a number of 60's "exploitation" flicks and this one scores some points (acting, mood, cinematography) and slightly better than most. THE AGONY OF LOVE is one of the better ones with Pat Barrington.
