A quartet of gangsters rob a jeweller, but the heist goes awfully wrong when the alarm is sounded too soon, one of them is wounded by a cop & then shot by his own accomplice, brutal Joe (Roy Morton), & somehow the the loot lands on the back of the pickup of family man Dave (Kirk Duncan) - which Dave of course fails to realize.

Dave's little daughter Nancy (K.K.Riddle) eventually finds the jewels though & hides them in her doll, not telling anyone else about her find (& not realizing its value). Later that day, Nancy & her mother Linda (Tracey Robbins) make a trip to Lake Tahoe by bus ...

Meanwhile at Dave's place, the gangsters - boss Vito (Lyle Felice), his moll Vicky (Tanya maree), his right-hand man Nick (John Armond), brutal Joe & their mute black driver Curtis (John Talbert) - have finally caught up with him & torture him to learn the whereabouts of the jewels - which he has not the slightest idea of. Eventually the baddies decide it's a good idea to take his wife & daughter hostage to make Dave talk, so  they send Joe & Curtis after them ... & doing that, Joe proves to be every bit the brute one has thought him to be, eventually beating up both mother & daughter ...

Meanwhile back at Dave's place, Dave - tied to a chair - sees his chances improving when Nick throws away his nerves & tries to persuade Vito to give up on the jewels ... much to Vito's dismay, which does create quite some tension - but that is nothing compared to the tension created when Vito finds out nick has an affair with his moll Vicky ... & what's more, Dave's cop friend Frank (Joey Benson) has decided to pick exactly that time to pay Dave a visit ... which culminates in a shoot-out, at the end of which Nick changes sides & shoots Vito ...

Meanwhile Joe & Curtis are holding Linda & Nancy hostage in a hut in the mountains, but when Joe tries to rape Linda, Curtis - tired of being pushed around - changes sides & saves her from the rape, which he has to pay with his life. Linda & Nancy escape into the snow, but Joe is never far behind ... but by now Dave & cop Frank have also caught up with them, & after a final shoot-out, Joe drops down some cliffs, & somehow Nancy's doll, in which the jewels are hidden, falls down the same cliffs & lands besides his dead body.

 

Director Al Adamson's debut picture is a rather unimpressive crime picture, but it already shows the bluntness that would be apparent in almost all of Adamson's films, a bluntness that would sometimes lead to interesting/entertaining results, as it showed Adamson's drive to deliver just what he was asked for. However, occasionally this would on the other hand make his films less interesting, even predictabe & boring, as is the case here.

 

When originally released, the film met with a less than appreciative audience & as such soon faded into obscurity, however much of the footage made it into Adamson's later movies, The Fiend with the Electronic Brain (1968 - with footage starring John Carradine added) & Blood of Ghastly Horror (1971 - which incorporates footage from this movie as well as the Carradine footage from The Fiend with the Electronic Brain, and newly shot footage with Kent Taylor & Regina Carroll), 2 science fiction movies that take Psycho a Go-Go's plot into totally different directions.
