Sande N. Johnsen directed this standard nudie-horror film about a mad artist. Jack Lowe plays Peter, a photographer who comes to work at a friend's Greenwich Village studio. Lengthy scenes of demure nude models are followed by Peter being driven into a killing frenzy by the color red and strangling the women. By the end of the film, Peter is a raving, knife-wielding maniac, finally brought down after attacking his friend's wife. Debra Page and Marlene Denes co-star in this tepid skinflick from producer Al C. Ruban. The mad artist theme was popular at the time, with A Bucket of Blood and Color Me Blood Red standing as far-more entertaining examples of the subgenre.
