Sweet Savior was made around the time of the Charles Manson murders and the main charcter (played by a shaggy haired Troy Donahue) is basically, a Charles Manson-like guru who brings his flock to the home of a wealthy couple where a party is going on. The film has a lot of scenes that are pretty sick. The X rating is not unwarranted. Still, one can't help but notice an important sub-theme: the magnetic allure and influence a charismatic figure may have on a simple minded person especially when that charismatic figure supplies drugs to the person. The film also shows the potentially fatal dangers of blindly following a leader, thus it has some significance. However, it's unlikely that the film makers had any social conscience in mind when they made this due to the film's exploitational nature and the mean spirit which pervades throughout.
