Pets (1973 / 88 Films Blu-ray)

What’s the story?

Teenage Runaway Bonnie (Candice Rialson) has escaped the clutches of her controlling brother, only to become immediately embroiled in a twisted web of sexual manipulation. Initially convinced to aid in a carjacking, Bonnie is then taken in by a lecherous lesbian artist who hopes to groom her into a sapphic lover, only to have her plans thwarted by the perverse advances of a local gallery owner whose bizarre proclivities include the keeping of an unusual assortment of ‘pets.’

A bit of background

A truly unparalleled exploitation film viewing experience, Raphael Nussbaum’s PETS veers between moments of overwrought melodrama and jarring bouts of unhinged sleaze. Co-starring Ed Bishop (TV’s UFO), Joan Blackman (BLUE HAWAII), and Mike Cartel (RUNAWAY NIGHTMARE), and adapted from Nussbaum’s own stage play, 88 Films presents this drive-in classic newly restored from rare 35mm elements and on Blu-ray for the very first time.

88 Films’ Pets (1973) blu-ray is available at Amazon.com.
