Blood Sucking Freaks / Sardu: Master of the Screaming Virgins / The Incredible Torture Show

 Released Year: 1976
Directed by Joel M. Reed
Casted by:
Seamus O'Brien as Sardu
Luis De Jesus as Ralphus
Viju Krem as Natasha Di Natalie
Niles McMaster as Tom Maverick
Master Sardu runs a S&M/Grand Guignol-style theatre with his assistant, the midget Ralphus. In keeping with the Grand Guignol-style, the theatre puts on grotesque shows about torture and murder. What neither the audiences nor the critics know is that the shows are not staged but real. Moreover the naked women who appear to be tortured, dismembered and even killed during the performances are not actresses but kidnapped victims who are made into slaves.

Theatre critic, Creasy Silo, incurs Sardu's wrath by mocking his pretensions of art. Sardu responds by kidnapping and torturing Silo in the hopes that he will give the show a positive review, and by kidnapping ballerina Natasha DeNatalie in order to force her to participate in shows and thereby lend the shows an increased level of artistic legitimacy. Natasha's football-player boyfriend Tom Maverick and corrupt policeman Detective John Tucci try to find Natasha and unravel the mystery of Sardu's operation.

Sardu is also involved in white slavery and keeps a group of naked, almost feral, women in a cage in the basement of the theatre. While Maverick and Detective Tucci attempt to find Natasha, Sardu and Ralphus continue to torture their captives and attempt to brainwash DeNatalie and Silo so that they will participate in the theater productions. Sardu ultimately gets his comeuppance at the hands of his former captives.

OMG, this is a nasty movie, i believe it definitely freaked out a lot of people during that time. The gruesome part is kinda yucky and it did freak me out as well lol~ But the change of the movie title might be the reason to cause the failure of this movie.
