Awakening of Candra woof! 1981

Based on a real 1975 incident, a young couple honeymooning in the mountains is assaulted by a lunatic fisherman. The psycho kills the husband and rapes the girl, then he brainwashes poor Candra into thinking it was all an accident. Intense subject matter should be horrifying, but falls short of the mark in this flop. 96m/C VHS . Blanche Baker, Cliff DeYoung, Richard Jaeckel, Jeffrey Tambor, Paul Regina, Elizabeth Cheshire; D: Paul Wendkos; C: Richard C. Glouner; M: Billy Goldenberg. TV
