Glaringly exploitative, ABDUCTION (1975) tells the story of the daughter of a prominent wealthy family who is kidnapped by black radicals, sexually abused, and exploited for political purposes--but soon becomes a willing participant in her captors' criminal activities. The film was released the year after Patty Hearst's infamous kidnapping by the SLA, and it rode that publicity to a short-lived popularity.
In the science-fiction thriller EMBRYO (1976), Rock Hudson tenderly portrays an isolated scientist, Dr. Paul Holliston, who gets involved doing experiments on human fetuses and discovers a way to accelerate the process of growing from fetus to mature adult in just a few days. Barbara Carrera is well-cast as Victoria, the very imperfect (but perfect-looking) instant adult female who is Holliston's first success. Things quickly go bad once the "adult" fetus turns into a homicidal psycho and starts looking for a new formula to prevent herself from aging any further. In a kind of contemporary sci-fi thriller remake of THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, director Ralph Nelson manages an effective blend of old and new plot elements, but the story wasn't filmed until 10 years after its inception because producers feared that the topic of human growth hormone experiments was too provocative for audiences.
