One atrocity after another, as well as screaming, yelling, and crying, catapults this exploitation film into a level of excess that kills off the story itself. When a young man gets married and brings his wife home to meet his family, her resemblance to his dead mother is so strong that it causes a violent reaction -- especially in his father. In a fit of emotion, he tries to rape his daughter-in-law, an act which enrages his son so much that he cuts his father's head off. That murder precipitates other tragedies and killings, all in gory detail.
