This is the sort of film that one doesn't could you? It's one of the strangest things I've ever seen and oddly it doesn't really have any explanation for it either. The story is about Mumsy (the Mum of course), Nanny (the caretaker) and children Sonny and Girly (both of which are probably in their early '20s). It's pretty weird watching adult pretend they are kids and giggle and chase one another about...but it's even weirder when you learn what's going on. See their job is to lure back new "friends" who must play the "game" or be killed. What is this game? Well it's that they each must be in character and play for a certain amount of time a day and they have to follow rules and can't leave and whatnot. Why all of this is taking place is beyond me but it's quite a bizarre film that kept my attention most definitely. Recommended for those who like strange '70s cinema, you won't see another like this.

Availability:  On DVD
