Herschell Gordon Lewis directs Mal Arnold, William Kerwin and Connie Mason in this horror where an Egyptian caterer murders girls for their delectable flesh.
The first ever gore film owes more to the nudie exploitation market than it does to Hitch’s Psycho. Awfully acted, paced, plotted – yet overreaching for deep emotion and sophistication at times. There’s something Lynchian about the cardboard characters overwrought wailing response to death. There’s something in the bright colours (not just copious thick red paint but all the clothing and sets) that evoke Roy Lichtenstein. Accidental Pop Art, interminable horror.
