Variety - 03/24/1982
"...Bartel and Mary Woronov are delightfully strange in the leads while Robert Beltram creates a wonderful character in Raoul..."
New York Times - 09/25/1982

Product Description:

Paul and Mary Bland (Paul Bartel and Mary Woronov) are a dull but well-meaning couple, who more than live up to their surname. The Blands dream of owning a restaurant; however they don't have the $20,000 needed for the venture. Late one night, a swinger from the party next door enters the Blands' apartment and tries to assault Mary, but is killed when Paul whacks him with a frying pan. When the Blands discover the deceased is loaded with money, the couple hit upon an idea: lure sex-seekers to their home via a classified ad, kill them, and take their money. This way, they're not only financing their dream, they're cleaning up society! But when a locksmith named Raoul discovers their scheme, the Blands must make him a partner -- especially since Raoul knows that the "tasty" cadavers are being disposed of in a "culinary" manner...
