Plot – Spoilers:
A crazy mother and daughter live in a wealthy villa that they share with a bandaged/mummified corpse. The corpse seems to be the remains of Dad. He doesn’t have much to do here, though he’s probably the source of all their craziness.
Singapore Sling begins with a longheld family tradition from Dad’s time – a murdered servant being buried in the garden. Mother and daughter aren’t the best of mates, but they chug along for want of better accomplices to their craziness that includes bizarre roleplays.
Into their world arrives a wasted detective who’s desperately in love with Laura, a woman believed to be dead, and who was once a secretary to the family.
By the end of Singapore Sling, it gets even more unclear who is who. Was the daughter actually Laura damaged into roleplaying a daughter. Was the mother really the mother or just a passing performer in the daughter’s fantasy game.
Michele Valley who plays mother here, also played the mother in Dogooth.
