Kinski, as the sadistic bandit Johnny 'The Beast' Laster, has more on his mind than just the loot from his robberies. He's a sex-crazed maniac and any woman he meets is a potential rape victim.


Though it suffers greatly from a looooooow budget, complete with recycled scores and bad actors (and some good), beyond its trashiness, the film is actually quite entertaining, especially due to Kinski's rather unlikeable character. And although he's the protagaonist, he sure as hell ain't no good guy! In fact, the title should be "The Bastard."
