Description by OLDIES.com:
Dance students Toni and Sonya become Two Girls for a Madman
when toothy psycho Frank Yeager sees sexpot Toni at a bizarre back-room orgy in Greenwich Village. Impressed, Frank pops up in the back of Toni's car and "teaches her some new ballet steps." Wanting seconds, Frank starts stalking Toni, quickly discovers her best friend Sonya, and ends up breaking into their dance school, anxious for a private performance.... Starring Arlene Farber ("Toni France"), star of such Jerry Gross faves as The Female Animal
and Teenage Mother
, here's psychotic sexploitation from the man who made Toys Are Not For Children
Plus: Meet Mister Mari's Girls, a diverse group of Women in Trouble - ranging from a junkie-model in need of a fix, to a pregnant high-school girl, to a "hard-as-nails" lesbian eager to marry her blind girlfriend - who come to millionaire Mari for help and advice, and stay around for the most malignant catfight ever put on film....
And: Unaware of the local Hooded Strangler lurking around her door, poor "Helen Doe" decides to visit her aunt but, instead, winds up at the "House of Horror on the hill." There, she and six other Tortured Females are held by white slavers and persuaded to accept "a glamorous life of easy virtue" through beatings, whippings, and being forced to watch go-go dancers (?!). Worse, adding to the madness is nothing less than - are you ready? - "a half-witted, monkey-chattering, Mongolian hunchback." Honest.
TWO GIRLS FOR A MADMAN is a gem in the oeuvre of the quirky skinflick maestro Barry Mahon; it follows two young, attractive, and temperamentally opposite ballet students who are nonetheless good friends. Sonya is a good girl who takes her studies seriously, while Toni is a wild swinger with dreams of acting; she attends raucous orgies which, of course, are shown here in graphic detail. When psychotic Frank Yeager encounters Toni at an orgy, he blatantly flouts his psychiatrist's advice and follows her, eventually attacking her in a rough sexual encounter. Later, however, she recommends him to Sonya, describing him as "all man," and the madman eventually shows up at the girls' school looking for a follow-up to the first act! Quite explicit softcore, especially for a film from the 60s, TWO GIRLS sports an impressive orgy scene and an extremely sensual, luxurious shower scene.
A millionaire represents the last hope of a host of sexy young things in trouble in MR. MARI'S GIRLS, and he is willing to come to their aid, for a price. Stella is a beautiful model hooked on heroin who will do anything for her next fix, including dance nude for Mr. Mari. Dirk is a tough lesbian desperately in love with her blind girlfriend Barbara, while poor Diane is a young high school girl who has gotten knocked up by her English teacher. All these lost souls congregate at Mr. Mari's place, and compete with one another for his help, resulting in one of the most spectacular catfights in sexploitation history!
Helen Doe is a dutiful niece on her way to visit her aunt, blissfully unaware that a hooded strangler is lurking about; she is waylaid and brought to "The House of Horror on the Hill." There, she and six other TORTURED FEMALES are forced to perform according to their captors' will, coerced into submission through various forms of more or less shocking, titillating torture. This is an incredibly eccentric, exuberant roughie.
