Killing Kind is a psychological thriller by Curtis Harrington. Having just served two years in prison for being wrongly accused of gang-rape, Terry Lambert (John Savage) returns home to his doting mother Thelma (Ann Sothern), who runs a boarding house for elderly women. Thelma is very supportive, if somewhat overbearing, and encourages Terry's anger at being framed for the rape. It soon becomes clear that the horrific experiences of the last two years have had a serious effect on Terry's mental stability, and his anxieties are aggravated by the increasingly inappropriate attentions of his mother. In a shift from her normal boarding-house rules, Thelma allows a new young guest, Lori Davis (Cindy Williams), to stay. Lori and Terry are instantly attracted to each other, a fact that does not escape the attention of Thelma, who jealously tries to keep them apart. Whilst these tensions are unfurling within the Lambert household, next-door neighbor Louise (Luana Anders), begins to show an unhealthy interest in the obviously disturbed Terry. She soon tries to seduce Terry, and encourages his darker fantasies. Terry's loss of contact with reality, and the inevitable consequences of his obsessive, over-indulgent mother, begin to take shape, and the bodies begin to pile up one by one.moreless
