One of the previous reviewers has made the point that this was never reviewed by the MF B.Quinlan states that this had few showings.This is a very curious film.It has the air of three separate TV episodes cut together to make a feature similar to the Colonel March features.Scenes are linked together by a rather monotonous narration spoken by Patrick Barr who plays the private investigator who is constantly on the trail of Todd Slaughter making one of his few appearances in modern dress.The film is poorly edited and seems to jump from one story to another.The ending is just so bizarre,as if someone had chopped 10 minutes out of the film.
