This minor gore-comedy from cult director Herschell Gordon Lewis stars Elizabeth Davis as an elderly wigmaker. Her son murders women and scalps them to provide hair for the wigs, choosing victims from the college students who rent rooms in their home. The humor is of the slapstick, vaudeville nature, and Lewis' gore effects had become no more convincing in the four years since his first horror outing, Blood Feast (1963). Nevertheless, a great deal of red paint is spilled and that is what made Lewis his name.
