A deranged maniac is stalking the sleazy massage parlors of Times Square, murdering helpless hookers in a variety of nasty ways. Grizzled Detective Rizotti and his younger, more romantic minded partner, Detective O’Mara, are on the case, but keep hitting dead ends and diversions, all while having to fend off the seductive charms of the very massage hostesses they’re trying to protect. Will they unmask this demented and bloodthirsty pervert before all the city’s prostitutes wind up in body bags?
A fever dream of New York lensed 70s exploitation cinema, Chester Fox and Alex Stevens’ MASSAGE PARLOR MURDERS explodes on the screen with a non-stop orgy of murder, mayhem, gratuitous T&A, grimy Manhattan locales, bizarre plot twists, and even an out of left field and highly ambitious car chase! Featuring Sandra Peabody (THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT), Chris Jordan (A TOUCH OF GENIE), Anne Gaybis (WHAM BAM THANK YOU SPACEMAN), Arlana Blue (BLOODSUCKING FREAKS), Brother Theodore (DEVIL’S EXPRESS), and award winning character actor George Dzundza (THE DEER HUNTER) in one of his earliest on screen appearances, MASSAGE PARLOR MURDERS was never released on video and long believed lost until Vinegar Syndrome uncovered the original negative. At last this essential grindhouse epic makes the leap to 4K UHD, newly restored and looking so crisp you can almost smell the garbage!
