In this updated version of Earth Spirit and Pandora’s Box, Lulu spirals downward from fashion model to punk rocker to prostitute while innocently and wantonly luring a series of helpless lovers into her lethal orbit. In the end, she allows her lesbian lover to take a murder rap for her before her own brutal murder by a serial killer.
