If you can get through the opening 10 minutes, it becomes almost impossible to stop watching. I kept having to shake myself loose from it's creepy grip every few minutes. The only other comparison that comes to mind is the Archies. Imagine Reggie falling hard for Jughead and feeling the uncontrollable urge to thrill-kill Betty and Veronica and bury them in shallow graves in the desert as a result. I shit you not. That is that plot in a nutshell.
The other thing that must be said about The Todd Killings is just how on earth they got real actors like Ed Asner, Barbara Bel Geddes, Michael Conrad and Gloria Grahame(!) to appear in this whacked-out teen revolt picture. It's like crazy, man!
A must see and possible candidate for Coleslaw's increasingly-inaccurate top ten film list which at last count stood at 407 movies. Ignore the fact that TV Times gave it one measley star and it's IMBd rating is 4.3. None of these people know what they're talking about. This is a unqualified masterpiece.
