Artsy, moody sex/horror oddity.
17 August 2005 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

A young hippie drifter on motorbike is lured to his destiny at the hands of three stunning females residing in a hidden forest cabin(with interior furnishings that look like they were lifted from the sets of A CLOCKWORK ORANGE).

LE REGINE is a more-than-partially successful blend of pop-art post-modernism and fairly standard erotic eurohorror, an intriguing mood piece helped along by its surreal atmosphere and a retro-cool bizarro musical score. Eerily dreamlike and spiked with hot sex and an attractive cast, this largely forgotten item deserves rediscovery and some degree of praise...while far from a perfect film, it is undeniably offbeat and rises above the standard for the bulk of sexy Eurotrash released in its day.

7/10...unexpectedly good.
