Seventh Victim (The)

What utter codswallop.
There's a hint of lesbian subtext - nothing to lose sleep over. But, this will send anyone to sleep - in an instant.
The writing is diabolical - considering it's about satanists, that comes as no surprise!
Many compliments have been bestowed upon this B-movie - obviously, we are either missing something completely or, they saw a different film.
Because, this is rubbish.
When her older sister Jacqueline disappears, Mary Gibson is forced to leave her private school and decides to travel to New York City to look for her. A bit naive and out of her depth, she is not quite sure how to go about finding her. Eventually she meets Gregory Ward, her sister's husband and a mysterious psychiatrist, Dr. Louis Judd who claims to know of Jacqueline's whereabouts. What she doesn't realize is that her sister became involved with devil worshipers who now want to eliminate her for having revealed their existence.
