Movie Info

This film is a remake of the notorious 1949 British melodrama No Orchids For Miss Blandish. Kim Darby plays a 1920s-era debutante who is kidnapped and held for ransom. Her captors are the Grissoms, a family comprised of sadists and morons, and headed by a Ma Barker clone.

When the movie's over, you can't exactly say what it's meant to you.

Not even one milligram of subtlety can be found anywhere in this picture, resulting in a grueling watch.

It works best as a complex macabre black comedy on family relations.

Seldom has any movie had more gratuitous gore, more simple-minded sadism or more mediocre melodrama. This gangster drama set in the 1930's outdoes Bonnie and Clyde in mayhem with far less reason and virtually no artistry.

It's certainly a wonderfully entertaining and well-crafted movie that plays perhaps better today than it did in 1971.
