Films: Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny, and Girly (1970)
Alias: See the title, the Happy Family
Location: Haunted Home
Height/Weight: That of average humans.
Summary: It's good for the family to be playing games together. What's not so good is when that game involves torture and attempts at murder. Seems simple, unless you're one of these nut jobs.
History: This group of people is nebulous in their true identities, but they are united by "the game", in which they lure men to their manor to torture and eventually "send them to the Angels" (read: kill them). Their most recent target, a male prostitute, may shake things up though. For if he is to survive, he must play these maniacs back.
Notable Kills: The "Happy Family" prefers to use playground motifs to kill their victims, such as throwing a woman off a slide.
Final Fate: The "New Friend" manages to stir up so much sexual jealousy among the family members that Sonny and Nanny end up dying at their relatives' hands. Mumsy and Girly compromise to share the New Friend, but he's secretly packing poison needles for that...
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 2.5-While they are only a step backward from the Manson family, Girly's family is a bit too easily dysfunctional to be a lasting threat. If all it takes it jealousy to sort things out, it's not too bad.
Trivia: -This was the dream project of Freddie Francis, a cinematographer who always wanted to have complete dominance over a film of his making.
-This film was based on a two-act play known as "Happy Family".
