"Nudie-cutie" considered the first nudie-musical (filmed in "Buffocolor" and "Seemorescope") displays scads of female nudity as folks go about their business in a nudist camp, including a ten-minute horseback (bareback) riding scene.

In a scuzzy Hollywood strip joint, two lesbian strippers are jealous of the new girl, whose incredibly sexy dancing is getting all the customers' attention--and money--so they hatch a plot to make sure she doesn't appeal to men anymore.
Fairly tame and unexciting, Mantis in Lace is about a stripper in a club who tries acid one night while out with some groovy cat and has a bad trip. She hallucinates weird lights and patterns on the guy's face. Then she stabs him repeatedly with a screwdriver. End of date. She proceeds to go find other guys and brings them back to her place and does the same to them.
I was expecting more from this one. It's very, very low-budget, even by films of this type. The main actress isn't anything to write home about and the lensing by stud cinematographer Lazlo Kovacs isn't that hot. It also drags in a big way. This feels almost like a short that was padded to feature length.
Film has none of the mind-bending visuals or stylistic flourishes of Rotsler's brilliant "Like It Is" which was also released in 1968.
