Powerful and bleak, this 1969 film could be described as a very dark version of a John Waters movie. Unsuccessful on its initial release, it has come to be regarded as a landmark of American independent cinema.
"It's about an overweight, sullen woman who hooked up with this guy and they would trick lonely hearts...into having affairs with them, and then they would kill them. With the Internet dating today, this certainly could happen again." -John Waters
