Sumptuous, bracingly erotic porn flick that defies expectations
13 December 2005 | by (Mountains of Madness) – See all my reviews

Harry Manfredini, the man who became famous for his basic musical contribution to "Friday The 13th", also scored this sumptuous, highly original porn flick, a clear inspiration for Greg Dark's "Devil in Miss Jones Parts 3 & 4". Although an X-rated version was released, the film's high quality allowed it to break out and enjoy some mainstream exposure. Although some of the acting (by porn vets) is unconvincing, some of the acting (by porn vets such as Jaime Gillis) is superb. Catherine Burgess is sultry and ultra-sexy as the bored socialite housewife, Catherine, who enters an incredible, deSade-like sexual inferno through the mirror in her bedroom. The sex scenes are bracingly erotic and beautifully shot, and the production design has a thematic consistency rarely found in porn films. "Nightdreams" and "Cafe Flesh", and Dark's "Devil in Miss Jones 3/4" and "New Wave Hookers" all owe a debt to this amazing curio, a porn film that joins the ranks of adult classics such as "The Opening of Misty Beethoven", "Odyssey", "3AM", "Caligula", "Night Dreams" and "Body Love".
