Igor And The Lunatics (1985)
The infamous table saw scene takes place in the very beginning of the movie and then is shown two other times in more detail. I guess they really got their moneys worth with that effect. The saw splits a topless woman in half from crotch to forehead and is clearly the most memorable scene in the movie. Paul's most deranged and loyal follower is Igor who is shown on the VHS cover art. Its a shame that the guy who plays Igor has only done this one film because he is a pretty nutty dude and really entertaining to watch. He's always yelling and making ridiculous faces. Igor uses an abnormally large switchblade as a weapon of choice and we are lucky enough to watch him gut a bare breasted babe in the back of his hippie van.
The film eventually jumps forward to the 80's and the real Paul is released from prison. He pulls a (Terry Hawkins) Last House On Dead End Street move and takes revenge against the town that locked him away. Tom goes to war with Paul and Igor... or what ever his name is and we get a couple gore scenes.
Personally being a fan of all these Charles Manson type films I have to admit this one is amongst the worst. Still if you free your mind and keep repeating its only a movie... Its only a movie and take this cheese-fest for what it is, you might even enjoy it. For a much better and more coherent time with Manson like hippie cults and murder you should just stick with I Drink Your Blood. Oh yeah and this thing comes complete with a typically dumb 1980's jump-scare ending.
