Sardu, master of the Theatre of the Macabre, and his assistant Ralphus run a show in which, under the guise of 'magic', they torture and murder people in front of their audience. But what the punters see as a trick is actually real.
Loosely based on the notorious Richard Speck murders, this is the grim tale of a disturbed Vietnam vet returning home via Belfast, who invades a house shared by eight nurses and proceeds to terrorize and murder them. Written by
Hard to be upbeat and funny about this one! This is pure 100% seventies grimness, what with it being some sort of comment about being a disturbed Vietnam vet or something.
Set in grim Belfast during the grim troubles, complete with grim troubles, grim bombings and such like, our Vietnam vet only wants to get back to the states, and tries to do so by visiting a horrific middle aged Irish prozzy, begging for food, and torturing and killing eight or nine nurses for some reason.
So if you're all up for a cheesy film night, then avoid this one. While devoid (thank feck!) of anything particularly grim, this film will still leave a bad taste in your mouth, as our killer is so very polite with his victims (it's all 'please take of your clothes' and 'don't worry') but before long he's stumbling over the bodies.
It took me ages to get round to watching this one. It's not a bad film, but the subject matter is well nasty. It's not that gory until the end (when someone opens a vein) but, it's horrible
