The Love-Thrill Murders (1971)

Director: Robert L. Roberts

Starring: Troy Donahue, Renay Granville, Francine Middleton, Tallie Cochrane

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Six states wanted them jailed. Eight torture victims wanted them dead. All the blood freaks wanted was one more night... of the most brutal orgy in history!

Plot: Sandra Barlow is a rich girl looking for kicks in the form of sex and drugs. One day, she decides to have an orgy drug party and invite some "freaks" led by Moon to entertain her and her rich friends. Moon has other things in mind as his friends are looking for an orgy of sex and gore.

My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again? Yeah.

#64 on Dusk to Dawn Drive-In Trash-o-Rama Show Vol. 1 (part of the TRAILER TRASH PROJECT)

It's low budget sleaze and I loved it. It's loaded with drugs, hippies, nudity, torture, gore, kills, dead rich folks, motorcycles, the love bus, more nudity, go-go dancing, groovy psychedelic music, drug trips, lesbians, satanic rituals, a Steve Martin lookalike and a gay guy that looks like Sam Donaldson - basically everything you'd want in a drug-fueled orgy like this.

I know what your thinking. "Where can I get this masterpiece?". I made a DVD from a VHS rental some years back. That'll have to satisfy me until the Criterion Collection deluxe Blu-ray comes out. Unfortunately this work of art has never made it onto an official DVD release. Perhaps the Library of Congress will add it to its film preservation registry.
