has been divorced for ten years. One day, he's surprised by a visit
from Sharon, his now-teenage stepdaughter, who tells him that she's
decided to move in. Although he has a new woman in his life, Ken lets
the young girl stay with them. As it turns out, Sharon is a deranged,
homicidal nymphomaniac, who tries to seduce both of them (succeeding
with his girlfriend) before taking her brutal frustration out on an
unlucky door-to-door bible salesman.
Gary Graver was a talented Hollywood cinematographer who lensed over
200 films for everybody from Roger Corman to Steven Spielberg to Fred
Olen Ray. He was cameraman for Orson Welles on everything made from
1970 to (Welles' death in) 1985. During this fifteen year period, Graver
and Welles were inseparable, constantly working on each other's projects.
It is presumed that Orson Wells was the editor for this film. Gary Graver
would also dabble in various hardcore projects under the alias Robert
McCallum. Mr Graver died on November 16 2006 at age 68.
