The Stepmother - Click to View Larger...Sunday Night at the Movies: The Stepmother (1972) - Returning home late one night from a business trip to Mexico, architect Frank Delgado (Alejandro Rey of "The Flying Nun) finds the car of wealthy client Alan Richmond in his driveway. Suspecting (correctly) that his wife Margo and Richmond are having an affair, Frank attacks Richmond when he steps outside and strangles him to death.
Although stunned by his action, Frank drives Richmond's body to the beach and, using a spade he brought from his home, buries the body in the sand. As he finishes the burial, Frank overhears a nearby, young, Latin couple's argument escalate into a fight, but drives away without being seen.
The next morning as the police receive a report of the discovery of two bodies at the beach, Frank and Margo are awakened by the arrival of Frank's business partner Dick Hill (Larry Linville of M*A*S*H television fame, and little else), his wife Sonya and their friends, pornographic film director Goof and his wife Rita. Although reluctant, the tense Frank agrees to accompany the others to the beach house belonging to Richmond, for whom he and Dick are building another property.
The movie then turns into an adult version of a beach party movie, before it then veers back into something resembling an episode of the NBC Mystery Movie, but with tits.
The movie also stars Katherine Justice, who also starred in episodes of Mannix, Barnaby Jones and the like, and the movie also credits BBDI favorite Claudia Jennings as "Nude." So, keep an eye out for Claudia, beacause if she's nude, as always, you're in for a treat.
As can be expected, this gem is NSFW, and includes badly done acting, violence, and nudity. Enjoy.
