review by
Mike Haberfelner


Mitchell (Tony McCabe) had a terrible accident in which he almost got electrocuted and that left him horribly disfigured and turned him into a bitter cynic. But on the plus side, now he has psychic powers ...

One day, an old hag (Mudite Arums) pays Mitchell, who has meanwhile made a career as a masked psychic, a visit and offers to give him his looks back - but he has to become her lover. Mitchell refuses because he thinks she's even uglier than he is, however she still gives him his looks back ...

A few days later, Mitchell picks up a beautiful girl in a restaurant, Ellen Parker (Elizabeth Lee) and takes her back home ... only to find out that she is really the old hag. Still, the two become a couple.

Before you know it, Mitchell is hired to help the police find a serialkiller - which causes Dr Jordan (William Brooker) to enter the game, a gouvernment agent looking for real life psychics to help in the Cold War. Pretty soon though, Jordan becomes fascinated by Ellen Parker, so much so that he on one occasion tries to rape her - for which she has her revenge by having him almost strangled by his own blanket (!).

Eventually, Mitchell finds out who the killer is via an LSD-trip (really) - which is a good thing and a bad thing as the culprit is Maddox (Ted Heil), the very detective he works with on the case, and he's a schizophrenic, which means he's hard to predict even for the best of psychics, and he knows how to handle a gun ...

 

As the title suggests, this is something weird, a film that doesn't clearly fit into any one category: on one hand it's a serialkiller movie, with all the usual plot elements, on the other hand there is a psychic, a witch and (in a subplot that is of no consequence to the main story) a ghost, plus an LSD-trip. And then there's of course a love triangle that ends in murder. And it's all done in the typical cheapskate drive-in style ...

This combination might sound terribly silly, but if you don't take the film too seriously, you might as well enjoy it in a trashy sort of way. That said, unlike many other Herschell Gordon Lewis-shockers, this film was made in a no-nonsense way, and it features as good as no gore. Still, it's fun!!!
