One of the only English-language slasher films that was not released in America during the early 80s slasher craze. It wasn't released in America on VHS until 1986 by Video City Productions. See more »
It's a bit slow at first, but it gets going. What a camp film.
I noticed Roger Ward wearing what could only be a hair piece which looked like a doormat missing the welcome sign. When they put the woman in the fish tank to drown her, she didn't fight very hard and was rather unrealistic, but I guess that adds to its camp disposition! It's not the best film I have ever seen Roger Ward in - his performance in Mad Max will always be my favored. I would suggest you try and get a copy of LSD. It's one of those films you will have a soft spot for... in a peculiar kind of way. Typical of how 1970's films were shot in Australia
