Violence begets violence, and begat an X rating, in writer/director Durston’s upstate NY-lensed bloodbath which luridly exploited fears of dangerous drugs and hippie cults. Indian actor/dancer Bhaskar stars as a Satanist ringleader whose cadre (among them Lynn Lowry, in her first film) terrorizes a small town; pre-teen Riley Mills avenges his family by serving up meat pies laced with rabies-infected dogs’ blood that drive the hippies into a cannibalistic frenzy.
