Death Weekend

Inordinately wealthy dentist takes incredulous date for dirty weekend at his secluded mock-Tudor mansion. Fun (which doesn't look like materialising anyway) is spoiled by the arrival of four irate middle-aged greasers (led by Stroud in best bovine form). They take their time smashing the place up, killing the dentist and raping the girl. Spunky Vaccaro fights back (slitting the throat of smallest psycho at moment of orgasm), and at this point matters begin to pick up. Moderately exciting manhunt wraps up this excessively violent exploiter. Uneasy performances all round, however, don't help the tediously unbelievable premise of Fruet's dog-eared script.

OK "Last House" type flick is fairly light on the grindhouse aspects, and lacks tension and suspense. Still , it held my interest.
