Directed by James H. Proving no era produced weirder horror movies than the s, here comes a double feature of abstract, colorful films that barely fit within their genre. First up is Seeds of Evil , a macabre fantasy passed off on the '70s drive-in circuit as a nature-amuck film and also issued as a long-discontinued special edition DVD as The Gardener. The film first earned its place in the history books for the first non-Warhol-related lead role for actor Joe Dallesandro, the beefcake blank slate seen in Flesh, Trash, Heat, Blood for Dracula, and Flesh for Frankenstein. Colorful and often inscrutable, it's the kind of genre-mashing exercise that would be impossible to finance now but should bring a smile to anyone looking for something a bit different. In the curious prologue, an ailing woman in a hospital bed goes into hysterics and then dies when large, exotic flowers are brought into her room. Cut to the tranquil estate of the Bennetts, John Congdon and Ellen Houghton , who spend much of their time hobnobbing with the other rich and famous residents nearby.
