While ‘Sex Psycho’ has little to no credibility as a serious piece of film-making; when it comes to exploitation cinema, this is exactly what the sort of film that we degenerates look for! Sex Psycho starts off shockingly, and then constantly builds on itself, and it’s clear that director Walt Davis made this film with the intention of going a little further every time he decides to break a taboo. The plot centres on theme of an adulterous relationship between two unscrupulous individuals. Jerry and Eva are having an affair, and decide that Eva’s husband has to go. Naturally, they decide to take on the services of Eva’s brother; and while he and the husband are having sex (…), the boyfriend comes in and graphically inserts a butcher’s knife into the husband’s throat. From there, we watch as things go from sick to sicker, with the opening homosexual sex scene being topped by a sequence that sees the wife have sex with her lover on the bed that her husband’s corpse still lies on, before an incestuous sex scene is followed by a five person orgy.
The entire movie is shot in just one apartment, and I doubt the film cost more than a few bucks to make. It’s not surprising, then, that the film received just the one release…which didn’t take long to go out of print, and now finds itself the target of just about every hardcore porn/exploitation fan around. Naturally, the acting is rubbish and the direction leaves a lot to be desired; but the shameless nudity is a treat, and since it often leads into another graphic sex scene, it’s not surprising that this film is widely liked by anyone sick enough to track it down. Naturally, Sex Psycho isn’t for everyone; and I’d only really recommend this film to people familiar with hardcore pornography. There’s no depth at all to the plot, but unlike a lot of films of this type; this one doesn’t become boring because the sick sex scenes are interesting enough, and the way the plot is laid out always manages to provide some surprises. The ending features what is one of the most shocking, yet hilarious, castration sequences ever to be committed to film, and overall; if you like your movies dirty and sleazy, you can’t go wrong with Sex Psycho!
