Nickthecreep ripped the Troma VHS.
“Troy Donahue (looking like Leon Russell) is Moon, a Bible-quoting “chemical messiah” in this suitably sick, soft-core Manson movie set in NYC. Moon and his “family” live, sing (about plastic people), and have sex in a small apartment. The “freaks” are invited to help liven up a suburban swinger party. Moon gives a reluctant woman a popper and she screams, “screw me, now!” His followers eventually kill everybody, including a pregnant actress (Renay Granville). Moon has nightmares of his childhood (“No, Papa!”), and we see flashbacks and flashforward glimpses of the slaughter. Bull is tricked into having sex with a comic transsexual named Spitzi. Scenes of Moon riding through Times Square are shown twice. The soft-rock theme, written by Jeff Barry (who created the Archies) is excellent and could have been a hit (really). Lloyd Kaufman was the production manager. This was later retitled and released by Troma. The video seems to be cut. The Director later made Patty (1975).” [Psychotronic]
