This peculiar thriller was directed by Paul Leder (I Dismember Mama) and features the husband-wife team of Greg Mullavey and Meredith MacRae, who appeared in several of his films. Another low-budget shocker concerning the murders of a greedy family gathering around the deathbed of a dying man, Vultures deserves points for its sheer outlandishness and an oddball cast. Female impersonator Jim Bailey appears in half a dozen different roles and does a Barbra Streisand imitation. Stuart Whitman, Aldo Ray, and Yvonne DeCarlo are among the suspects, and such obscure cult figures as Maria Perschy show up as well. Genre buffs are likely to find it amusing, while most other viewers will be left perplexed.
