Plot – Spoilers:
Ruggero Deodato’s version of Last House on the Left, but not really.
David Hess returns from the 1972 movie, this time as Alex, a serial rapist and sometimes killer. Ricky is his slightly dumb accomplice who also works in his garage.
One weekend night when the two are about to shut down and head out, a wealthy couple pull up requesting a quick job on their car engine. When Alex hears the couple are headed to a party at an affluent cottage, he joins them, but not before packing his favorite razor.
At the cottage, the rich folks there wow Ricky and he begins to perform for their amusement. Alex isn’t impressed as he has been trying to thrust himself as an equal, especially with the ladies, despite the growing class divides. It’s not long before Alex decides it’s time to take over the party and show them all a good time.
