It’s another one of those mentally ill killer kids movies, but a pretty good one for 1974.

Early 70's gem. All the acting was superb. The hierarchy of adults and wayward kids is really effective here. These kids' troubled minds sneak up on the unsuspecting grown-ups. Leif Garrett featured here would become Felix Unger's son on TV's The Odd Couple and even later a teen heartthrob! Sorrell Booke became Boss Hogg on The Dukes Of Hazzard.
I debated between 3 and 4 skulls. It's definitely rough in places, especially earlier on (If I'd reviewed it at the half-hour mark, it would have been a 1), but all the characters ended up growing on me, and once it hits its stride, there's some truly great 70s weirdness and gore going on.
