THE PYX (1973) **

Christopher Plummer stars in this boring Canadian thriller as a cop looking for the murderer of a junkie prostitute played by Karen (House of 1000 Corpses) Black. In the end we learn that she was sacrificed by a satanic cult. The intercutting between Plummer’s investigation and the flashbacks of Black doesn’t really work and the various French-Canadian accents are pretty grating. The two leads are good, but this really should’ve been called Rosemary’s Hooker. Black also sings the theme song (badly).

AKA: The Hooker Cult Murders.
