Mantis in Lace (aka Lila)

Mantis in lace (AKA Lila)
A Harry Novak Presentation
1968 – color – 87 min
Genre – Ghoulie

Oh the Ghoulie, degenerate cousin to the roughie. Where in the roughie, sex leads to violence. In the ghoulie sex leads to death, bloody, bloody gruesome death. And in mantis in lace, it delivers in spades. Lila is a topless go go dancer. I have no idea how she’s maintained a job except based on her looks because she’s the single worst go go dancer I’ve ever seen ands trust me, I’ve seen plenty. Lila seduces men and brings them back to a warehouse she’s using to bring guys to have sex with. This whole set up goes terribly wrong when she brings a man back who has her drop acid with him. Needless to say she has a bad trip and he ends up in a field chopped to bits like so much unwanted firewood.

Sprinkle in some amazing breasts, a few more murders, a police investigation, Stuart Lancaster from Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! And some bizarre psychedelic LSD trips and you’ve got yourself a film for the ages. Mantis in lace is a truly twisted tale of sex drugs and dismemberment. Fun for the whole family.

5 out of 5

Enjoy it sickos
