Overly simplistic and moralistic...but I liked the shipwreck scene near the end.
26 January 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Sensation Seekers" could have been a good film. Instead, it looks a bit like a Sunday School lesson written by someone on drugs! It's highly moralistic and filled with folks running amok in a little town...while a few decent people go to church and act pious. One of the wild ones is Egypt and she's played by Billie Dove and the nice new preacher tries to help her...but ultimately she runs off with a weasel and they pay the price for their not niceness and nearly die to prove that goodness is swell and skankiness isn't.

The film seemed preachy but confusing in its message. Plus the minister's relationship with Egypt never really made a lot of sense. What DID work was the finale...which was grand. The film features a harrowing shipwreck and Dove apparently gave it her all and looked almost like she was being drowned for real! Not a great film...but a great ending.
