Low Budget 70's film, 5 July 2006
Author: SilentOne92 from Chicago - United States

The Sins of Rachel is a murder mystery, The story revolves around who killed Rachel, a former nightclub performer (played by Ann Noble). She is murdered at the beginning of the film and remainder is told through the police investigation and flashbacks. The prime suspect is her son Jimmy (played by Bruce Campbell). Their is also am investigator who was going to be writing her memoirs who is looking into who killed her. During the investigation themes of incest and homosexuality come into play. This is not as bad as some of the other reviews have indicated but that does not make this a recommend film to see. It is a low budget film with so so to pretty bad acting and direction. This movie is a typical low budget "grinder" from the early 70's.
