The Killing Kind 1973 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Paroled from prison, sex offender Terry (John Savage of THE DEER HUNTER) returns to the Hollywood boarding house of his mother Thelma (screen legend Ann Sothern), a former dancer with unwholesome ideas about tender loving care.
Escaping Thelma s suffocating attentions by peeping on pretty tenant Lori (future LAVERNE AND SHIRLEY star Cindy Williams), Terry is unaware that he is being spied on by a neighbor (DEMENTIA 13 s Luana Anders) who keeps a place in her own fantasies for someone of Terry s special talents.
Meanwhile, terrible things are happening to anyone who has ever done Terry wrong, from the judge who sentenced him (Ruth Roman, from STRANGERS ON A TRAIN), to the girl whose testimony put him behind bars (Sue Bernard, of FASTER, [**]CAT! KILL! KILL!).
This seldom seen sickie (Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film) is the work of the late Curtis Harrington, director of such horror classics as NIGHT TIDE, GAMES, THE DEAD DON T DIE! and RUBY.
Long unavailable in any format with only a brief theatrical release, THE KILLING KIND makes its DVD debut in an uncut, uncensored collector s edition from Dark Sky Films.
