Madeline (Christina Lindberg), [[RapeAsBackstory as a little girl, is raped in the park by an old pedophile]], rendering her [[CuteMute mute]]. When she grows up, she goes into town one day and is abducted by a pimp, Tony (Heinz Hopf), who drugs her with heroin while she is unconscious thus rendering her unable to survive for more than a few hours without a periodic fix. Tony will give her this fix, plus a wage, if she prostitutes herself. Amidst being abused by the clients, Tony forges a letter under her name and sends it to Madeline's parents wherein she says that she hates them and doesn't want them to try and find her. Also, when she refuses a client, Tony [[EyeScream gouges one of her eyes out]], and she wears an [[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch]] for the rest of the film. Madeline befriends another prostitute, who claims to know a doctor who can cure the addiction, and the two elope to flee, but she is then murdered. Madeline then escapes back to her parents only to find that the forged letter prompted them to commit suicide. That's the final straw...

The film is notable for its hardcore sex scenes, for the highly controversial use of a genuine cadaver in the above-mentioned eye-gouging scene, and for being [[BannedInChina banned in Sweden]], its country of origin. It is also notable as being, along with ''LadySnowblood'', one of the primary inspirations for ''Film/KillBill'', both in terms of plot and in terms of Elle Driver's eyepatched appearance.

* ForgedMessage: Out of everything else that Tony, the monstrous pimp from Thriller: A Cruel Picture, did to Madeline (including putting out one of her eyes for refusing a client), by far his most despicable act was to forge a letter to her parents in her name, telling them that she hated them and not to bother trying to find her. When Madeline seeks out her parents after escaping him, she learns that the letter had the effect of [[DrivenToSuicide driving them to suicide]]. This is the final straw that sets the stage for one hell of a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
