Storyline

Howard Thorne is a rapist in Los Angeles: he meets women at work and at parties or he sees them walking down the street, and he follows them, terrifies them, and assaults them. He also dreams about these assaults, and he's unclear how much of what he's done is real and how much is fantasy. He ignores his heroin-using wife, Vicki, who tries everything she can think of to get his sexual attention. Howard and Vicki go separately to a costume party where she learns the full truth about his nature and where he is stalked by one of his recent victims. Individualized versions of Hell await Howard and Vicki. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

it achieves completely what it sets out to do and them some
10 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Of course this film does not deserve the full ten star rating because it is one of the greatest films ever but simply because it achieves completely what it sets out to do and them some. Clearly Jack Hill's brief was to make a sexploitation 'roughie' and this he does with great style but then, the director of Spider Baby can't stop there and this develops into sexploitation-noir and plays with drug taking and psychedelia before a character doing a passing interpretation of Lugosi's Dracula leads us to the end of the world. Along the way we have plenty of sexy action, though beautifully shot and not overlong, and some great party scenes, possibly the best ever with lots of skin and masks. There is also a lady in a large glass of champagne (which is shared by many) and a naked lady covered in salad with much French dressing (which is also shared by many). If you don't think you will like this you probably won't but if you just think you might, you'll love it.
