Storyline

A feminist cult survives by robbing and killing passersby, at their remote desert ranch. The North Star Dhruva cult leader Magdalena refuses to work for the Yankee dollar. Consequently she subjugates her two followers, who are forced to listen to the music of German opera all the time, while Magdalena drinks rum and Coca Cola in the ranch's ornate bar. But the lesbian masochist's iron rule over the rundown California ranch is questioned when a mother-loving young male wanderer, Lord Invader, stops in and romances the cult's meek slave Ila, after his mother is turned away by Magdalena. Written by David Stevens

horrible in every way
15 August 2018 | by DrealmerSee all my reviews

I only made it about 30 minutes into this movie before I couldn't bear it any more. There were moments where you could tell the director was telling the 'actors' what to do, some of the worst acting and directing I've seen. Then the male voice-over started and it was as if the actor had never before read the lines. This tried to be an artsy piece, but it was just a piece of crap.
