Socially Conscious Porno, 6 June 2005
Author: babycarrot67 from Columbus, Ohio

The narrator of "Perverted Passion" informs the viewer that he/she is responsible for the making of this porn film because the viewer "voted to cut government spending" (in California, where the film was shot), and thus one voyeuristic mental case with a hang-up for rape and murder is released early from an institution, and a motorcycle-riding thug is released early from prison due to these budget cuts. The two will eventually cross paths in the film. In the meantime, the mental case spies on numerous young couples having all kinds of sex, and once in a while strangles a female sex partner to death, while the escaped prisoner robs copulating couples at gunpoint.

The ads read that "Perverted Passion" was "filmed in scuzz-o-rama", and it shows! Despite all the obvious silliness on display, it has to be noted that "Perverted Passion" is made with much more skill than was necessary for a film of this type. The story lines involving the voyeur and the thug are realistic, and the actors in the roles could not be more convincing. The rape-murder scenes are very vivid and real, so real as to be quite disturbing. Finally, the explicit sex scenes are performed by a very attractive cast of unknowns and the sex scenes themselves are very hot and erotic. So, "Perverted Passion" winds up being a better-than-it-needs-to-be piece of porn cinema from the days when people who made these kinds of films actually put some thought and effort into their work.
