"[A] free-wheeling satirical comedy, poking fun at the foibles of Californians, and taking many sly digs at racist stereotyping and consumer capitalism."
Cult director Larry Cohen's (IT'S ALIVE, GOD TOLD ME TO) 1972 debut inspired at least one critic to name it "one of the most remarkable debuts in American cinema." In this dark comedy that serves as an interesting time capsule peek into early 1970's race relations, Yaphet Kotto stars as Bone, a mysterious African-American man who invades the home of a wealthy Beverly Hills couple. At first he demands money and sex, but soon finds himself embroiled the in the seemingly happy couple's rocky and complicated relationship.
