This ludicrously bizarre exploitation film from director Michael Findlay (Snuff) concerns a man named Davis (Robert Wuesterwurst) who kills his wife. Driving along with her body in the trunk, he picks up two lesbian hitchhikers, Maggie and Jackie, who kidnap him and take him to a very strange house. There, Davis meets the spaced-out Belle, who devotes her life to raising Baby, a demented blond woman who wears a diaper and sleeps in a crib. Over the next hour or so, Davis is teased, pleased and given drugged tea by the lesbians, who want him to give them a child and they send Anna -- a rather hefty woman whom Davis calls "Booberella" -- to convince him. Davis watches an orgy in which Maggie breast-feeds Baby while being whipped. When he tries to escape, Davis is beaten with an andiron and has his feet burned in the fireplace by the girls' servant, Bruno. Eventually, Davis manages to crawl upstairs and murder Baby, Maggie, and Jackie. Anna smothers him to death with her pendulous breasts, then goes to the beach and prevents the grieving Belle from killing herself. The two women embrace lovingly as the film ends. It's less than an hour long, and scored with inappropriate classical music. Findlay's growing legion of cult fans will be amused, while mainstream viewers will be dumbfounded.
