Beverly Hills, CA: Gustaf Unger Productions, Circa 1972. Draft script for the 1976 film "Sisters of Death," here under two working titles, "Death Trap" and "Sisters of Blood Island." The film was shot and produced in 1972, when this script was produced, but not released until 1976.

During a secret society initiation, a girls-only event, one of the new members is killed in a game of Russian roulette. Years go by, and the remaining members are invited to a reunion at a lavish estate belonging to the father of the killed girl.

After this directorial debut from Mazzuca, he would go on to work primarily in animated films, including "The Secret of the Sword" (1985), "Pinocchio and the Emperor of the Night" (1987), and "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" television series (1983-1985). Actress Claudia Jennings, who played Judy in the film, was a Playboy Playmate (1969-1970) who died a few years after "Sisters" in an automobile accident, leaving a short-lived but notable drive-in starlet legacy.
