Plot Sypnosis:

Nothing can prepare you for BOARDINGHOUSE. Jim (director John Wintergate), a psychic-gigolo who wears a leopard-print thong, rents a haunted house to "beautiful women with no ties." From there, this unworldly slasher transforms into a sleazy, hallucinogenic maelstrom of gore, sex, chainsaws, pie fights, killer refrigerators, jacuzzis, beds that eat people, a new wave band called 33 and 1/3, and a leading lady known only as Kalassu. BOARDINGHOUSE is the first shot-on-video horror film to be blown up to 35mm and released theatrically. AGFA + Bleeding Skull! are thrilled to bring the 35mm theatrical cut to home video for the first time in this 2-disc set, which also includes PSYCHO KILLER (a previously unreleased alternate home video cut) and SALLY & JESS (the previously unreleased "family film" from the makers of BOARDINGHOUSE).
