There are other mad moments too that make this worth watching
25 November 2018 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

Back in the wild west days of the video boom, I would avidly search out the most obscure titles, particularly low budget US 70s horror, crazy Hong kong cinema, even crazier Japanese and Italian giallo. Good, bad or indifferent they did provide alternative viewing and introduce me to another side of cinema. Viewing this type of film now on Blu-ray alongside classics of world cinema can be challenging. This particular outing from director Robert Allen Schnitzer is slightly different in that it eschews sex and violence and takes itself more seriously. As usual, not a good idea, Schnitzer is not up to it, his lack of funds restrict his movement and an erratic actor like Richard Lynch cannot be relied upon to save the day. Having said that the crazy 'real' mother all dressed up in low cut red dress (don't know why) in an attempt kidnap of her child is something to behold. There are other mad moments too that make this worth watching but really it could probably have done without all the psycho babble and had a bit more sex and violence instead.
