Alternate Versions

Originally released as Seeds in 1968 by Harrington Film Distributing Corporation and Aquarius Productions, Inc., Seeds was later re-issued in the 1970's as Seeds of Sin by Aquarius. Some sequences were edited out of the re-issue version and had porno footage added in. The original negative of Seeds is now considered to be lost.

For Milligan fans only
26 August 2007 | by dbborroughsSee all my reviews

Dysfunctional family goes home for the holidays and murder and mayhem result. Violent sexy Milligan at his most home made. Little better than a home movie (as much of Milligans films are) this is a trip into depravity 1960's style. Notable for the copious nudity and sex this film is neither sexy nor gruesome, playing now more as quaint.(though decidedly r rated). The film suffers from its uneven cast and from the cheapness of the production.(No one was ever sure where the money went on his movies since he was always broke). Its a bad bad movie thats not worth seeing except as a Milligan completeist or because its got some good looking people fooling around.
