Imagine the sordidness of an Italian giallo mixed with the no-rules anarchy of a Turkish ripoff, and you’re halfway there to this infamous exploitation epic of chainsaw mayhem and kinky touches (from the filmmaker of EROTIC DIARY OF A LUMBERJACK.)
Robert Ginty (THE EXTERMINATOR) and Belinda Mayne (KRULL) are sleazy brother-and-sister jewel thieves who covet the supernatural “White Fire” diamond. Their nutzoid plan involving plastic surgery and explosives to steal it hits a snag when bounty hunter Fred Williamson shows up thinking they’re responsible for the missing prostitute he’s tracking. Oh, and the film’s vaguely futuristic production design is never explained!
