Whatever you do, DON'T offer this man a drink!
29 March 2001 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

Interesting "Adults Only" . . . er . . .chiller (no pun intended this time). Rick (David Story) is a chick magnet who runs an icehouse. His life looks pretty good until a buxom blonde go-go dancer named Venus (Sabrina) conks him on the noggin with a beer bottle after he beats up her three (yes, THREE!) boyfriends. Suddenly Rick sees flashing lights and crazy sounds and goes into a blackout where he has an irresistible urge to strangle people!

Rick's twin brother Red (Robert Story) is a local cop who urges him to get help but when Rick's doctor suggests committing him to a hospital Rick balks, figuring he can keep his . . .um . . .little problem under control. Venus' initial contempt of Rick turns to passion after he breaks into her apartment and climbs into the shower with her (just keep saying "It's only a movie . . .only a movie . . .") but when she offers him a post coital drink he has one of those blackouts and before you know it Venus has bought the farm. He tries to dispose of her corpse but no matter where he drives there is always someone there first! But then he remembers . . .the Ice House! Problem is as he is quick freezing Venus body another of his customers, Mrs. Wilson shows up for a servicing (and I don't mean a block of ice) and; well this guys problems just keep increasing! Terrifically sleazy picture with highlights including a go-go club with totally nude dancers, a dance called "The Scrub" that totally failed to catch on and a twist ending which, even if you see it coming, will not disappoint you. B-movie stalwarts Scott Brady (whose career ranges from costarring with Joan Crawford in JOHNNY GUITAR to a giant gorilla in THE MIGHTY GORGA) and Jim Davis (who battled THE MONSTER FROM GREEN HELL before finally ending up as a regular on TV's "Dallas") pop up. Look quickly for porn legend John Holmes as a dancer in the nude club (we only see him from the back). The real attraction is Sabrina, a British singer/dancer who fills the screen all by herself. This was her last picture. You can also catch her in HOUSE OF THE BLACK DEATH where she plays a harem dancer conjured up by warlock Lon Chaney Jr. to do an erotic dance at his coven gathering. They don't make movies like this anymore. Some might consider that a relief but I am grateful for home video so I can get a glimpse of an era that I missed.
