    Often described as 'the Spanish Clockwork Orange', this controversial shocker is set in a violent near future world. Honest citizens live in terror as gangs of leather clad, whip wielding sadists roam the night time streets. Meanwhile, in a top secret laboratory, strange mind control experiments are being conducted. Against this background a beautiful nurse tries to ease the pain of those condemed to die. But who really is this angel of mercy and what is the purpose of her mission?

    A masterpiece of early 70's Euro rip-off madness. It's got Sue Lyon wearing too much greasy make-up and the always underwhelming Chris Mitchum...excited, I am. This is great nonsense of the highest order, if your taste in movies stretches to the more mondo end of the bracket, Jess Franco, bad Italian biker movies, Umberto Lenzi etc you're gonna dig this. Sleeper style futuristic art direction, gay looking hoodlums in shiny red helmets, and Sue Lyons killing hardbodied young men for no explicable reason, aside from the director wanting her to...Genius. This film also contains two superb faux adverts which are hysterical, one for an msg free blue drink called Blue Drink the other extolling the virtues of masculine leopard spot sex pants. A couple of heavy handed references to Sue Lyon's previous role as Lolita were included because ...because the director wanted to include them - that's good enough for me ...if you ever are lucky enough to come in contact with this prime slice of mondo-trasho check it out.
