This is easily one of the most bizarre films I have ever seen. Filmed in Gleason, Wisconsin by Bill Rebane, this film stars Tiny Tim as Mervo, a strange man who sings and paints his face like a clown.
In a small farming town people are being murdered by a madman who cuts their throats, and of course the audience is supposed to suspect Mervo for a while, but it turns out to be....well you have to see it to believe it.
Rebane has made a bunch of movies in his day, and most of them I like because I am crazy, and this is one of them. Tim is totally believable as Mervo and I suppose it is nothing but an actual extension of the real man himself.
Most reviews I have read tear this film apart, but mine won't. it's low budget and I like it. The leading lady, Itonia Salchek is very attractive and handles her role well. This is long out of print, but if you can find a copy watch it and see if you don't agree with me.
