A prostitute and her pimp are slaughtered by a sadistic killer while they were in bed together. The daughter of the prostitute witnesses the whole thing without the killer knowing. The daughter is sent to an orphanage to live. The orphanage is run by a woman named Mrs. Deere and her handyman named Tom Kredge, who is plaid by Len Lesser, who played Uncle Leo on the TV show SEINFELD. There is a detective who has taking an interest in her background named Calvin, who is played by Vic Tayback who played Mel on the old TV show ALICE. The girl soon finds out that Mrs. Deere and her handyman are sadist who run their orphanage like a concentration camp. She soon finds a lot of people from the orphanage missing and soon discovers why. The detective is who she confides in and tells what she has been suspecting going on at the orphanage. The detective gets heavily involved in the case and soon finds himself in a lot of danger. This was a slow movie film from the '70's and reminded me of a detective murder mystery type film rather than a Horror flick. It kind of had a feel of a lot of stuff that was coming out of Italy at this time.
