The Fiend1972

  • 3.1
There's a sickness in the house on Burbott Road; a sickness not of the body, but of the soul! For several years the sinister Minister (Patrick Magee) and the religious fanatic, Birdy Wemys (Ann Todd) have warped the mind of her psychotic, sexually confused son, Kenny (Tony Beckley). But now Kenny has grown up into a big boy with big problems. In a savage vendetta of lust and anger, the sexually frustrated Kenny goes on a violent rampage, seeking his redemption in the murder and mutilation of saucy tarts. Witness the unrelenting carnage of THE FIEND and pray for his immortal soul!

Baptism, anointment, the second coming.... How could the will of God being anything other than pure? And what could possibly be wrong with taking insulin? Watch and find out as our luckless protagonist (part-time security guard, part-time swimming pool attendant, and full-time member of a wacky religious sect) tries to quell his sinful flesh--and, veering away from one kind of error, crashes headlong into even worse transgressions. With obvious nods to (or thefts from) the previous decade's "Peeping Tom" and "The Collector," this sleazy romp through an age of groovier fashion is a solid piece of "B" movie-making. Of course, an invalid mother and flashbacks to childhood feature prominently. The question is, will the girl reporter and her equally hot nurse-roommate be saved?

Not bad B movie about christian cult fundamentalism and sexual repression, with some nudity to attract more pounds. Very amusing when instead of 'hymns' and organ music they stick in their own music. Patrick Magee makes a good fanatical leader.
