Strange film from Gary Graver.

Karen Black stars as a woman named Ella Purdy running a boarding house who kills her boarders and then collects their welfare checks and social security.

The house is supposedly haunted and the boarders are a bizarre lot indeed. Michael Berryman is Mr. Balzac, a writer who is constantly eating and spying on Prudys' sexy young daughter named Tina (Debra Lamb) who dances naked in her room.

Ella is always talking to her dead husband who tells her that she is pushing her luck with all of these killings. Arte Johnson is Lester Potts, a Social security man who looks into the mysterious disappearances of several clients, but actually has his own reasons for investigating.

This is a bizarre movie to say the least and some may not like it, but it has a cast to die for including Anthony Eisley, Yvette Vickers, Hoke Howell, Robert Quarry, Martine Beswick and Virginia Mayo.

This is a hard to find item now as it has never had a DVD release as far as I know. If you get a chance you might want to check it out for the cast alone because the plot isn't much and sometimes it's a head scratcher.
