A murderous and mysterious maniac with a split personality terrorizes folks at a remote rural asylum.
Boy, does this wonderfully wretched clunker cover all the endearingly shoddy dimestore cinema bases: The ham-fisted (mis)direction by Eric Jeffrey Haims, the plodding pace, cruddy gore, the clumsy use of narration, hopelessly amateurish acting by a lame no-name cast (Sebastian Brook cops the top thespic dishonors with his ridiculously twitchy portrayal of the stern and suspicious Dr. Dorian Cabala), the meandering story, the talkly’n’tedious script by Donn Greer, Arch Armbault’s rough and shaky cinematography, and the ramshackle production values all give this baby the crude charm of your basic backyard Andy Milligan opus.
Moreover, there’s not only a satisfying smattering of tasty female nudity and leering soft-core sex, but also truly appalling and explicit scenes of real frogs being dissected that would make members of PETA through a total fit if they ever saw this picture. 70’s skinflick starlets Rene Bond and Sandy Carey are on hand to bare their luscious wares while Bond’s real-life husband Ric Lutz pops up as a shy and timid wimp. The killer’s identity is a genuine surprise. A real schlocky hoot.
