Femmes de Sade is a 1976 Adult Thriller (Roughie) by Alex de Renzy. The film shows the parallel adventures of Rocky de Sade (Ken Turner) and Johny (John Leslie). Rocky de Sade is a 7-foot-tall ex-con who terrorizes San Francisco’s prostitutes, while Johny is a sex shop worker who has wild sexual fantasies. The two characters’ stories meet in the last scene, a costume party where the hookers get revenge on the creep who terrorized them. It was one of the first films to be inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame.
