Dr. Jekyll and His Women (1981)
AKA Bloodbath of Dr. Jekyll, Blood of Dr. Jekyll, Bloodlust, Dr. Jekyll and Lady Osbourne, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Miss Osbourne, Dr. Jekyll and His Wives and The Experiment
In celebration of the engagement of Dr. Henry Jekyll (Udo Kier) and Fanny Osbourne (Marina Pierro), a dinner party is held at Jekyll’s mansion home. When the guests disperse after dinner, Jekyll conveniently disappears from the group, retreating to his laboratory wherein he submerges himself in a bathtub full of chemicals transforming himself into the vicious Edward Hyde (Gerard Zalcberg), who then proceeds to sexually assault and murder the houseguests at random. In the midst of all the chaos, Jekyll is able to go unnoticed throughout the night, that is until Fanny catches a glimpse of him, and decides to join him in his rampage.
