Any thoughts? Not horror or exploitative enough and a UK Lew Grade-Italy Carlo Ponti coprod. It is mad, with OJ Simpson as a jive-talkin' CIA priest, sweets, Ray Lovelock as a dad-sweatered musiciain with a badly-singing Ann Turkel as a hippie chick, while her off-screen husband Richard Harris is in his trashy period.

Haven't seen it for years so can't comment on the film. When was the last time you saw it George? Did you like it?

It's fun enough, tho at times annoying, SPOILERS AHEAD
as everyone dies at the end but those who spoke, i.e. most of 'em.
Director George Pam Comatose manages to let the fantastic Jerry Goldsmith score breathe, and the idea of a true-life murderer talking to little girls, pretending to be a priest (he's actually an Interpol agent sent out to catch druggie Martin Sheen, now being Ava Gardner's baby lover) the J's for Baby Jesus, sweets! or so he says, but then again Orenthal James Simpson may or may not be a killer.
