The urban legend known as 'The Father's Day Killer' began some years after the demise of serial rapist/murderer Chris Fuchman. Since the 1970s, the use of contraceptives has tripled in North America alone and a generation of fathers fell asleep with the covers pulled tight, buttocks clenched. †The story has become a fire-side cautionary ritual on camping trips, often used by fathers to warn their sons of the dangers of unplanned pregnancy. That deep seeded fear of penetration, violation and eventually death waned as the murder and rape of fathers continued to decline all over the world. Unfortunately those numbers didn't remain low, and it would seem that the legend is not yet complete.

From William Castle, the director of The Tingler and Strait-Jacket comes this one-of-a-kind cult classics starring the world-renowned mime Marcel Marceau in a dual role as a mute puppeteer and an eccentric inventor. The legendary gimmick-master and horror-great's final film is genuine and strikingly effective experiment in filmmaking. After the death of the inventor, the downtrodden puppeteer gleefully discovers that he can re-animate the dead with electrodes and manipulate them like marionettes. The great cast includes mimic greats Tsilla Chelton and Philippe Clay as Mr. and Mrs. Barton, Marceau's evil sister and brother-in-law. One of the film's highlights is the beautiful and haunting score by the great Alex North (Spartacus).
