Academy Award winner Lee Grant (In the Heat of the Night, Shampoo) stars with Academy Award nominee Carol Kane (Dog Day Afternoon, When a Stranger Calls) in this psychological thriller directed by Emmy winner Karen Arthur (Lady Beware, Legacy). Cissy (Kane) and Ellen (Grant) are daughters of a deceased African primatologist who kept wild animals in a cage in his living room. Mentally unbalanced, Cissy virtually lives in this exotic ‘Mafu Cage’, crowded with hothouse plants and strange African artifacts. Ellen is obsessed with the caretaking of Cissy and must keep a constant watch on her sister’s unpredictable personality. When Ellen’s co-worker, David (James Olson, The Andromeda Strain, Ragtime), begins making romantic advances towards Ellen, Cissy believes the man poses a threat to the sisters’ relationship. The disturbed Cissy ensnares David in the Mafu Cage and subjects him to a series of horrific, and deadly rituals! Also starring Will Geer (TV’s The Waltons) and acclaimed by critics upon its release.
