Never mind the lurid title, they don't make 'em like this anymore
2 December 2007 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This is the kind of movie that could go only have been made in the 1970's and which I personally can't help but feel a certain affection for (albeit kind of like the affection one might feel for a retarded step-child). Despite the lurid title, it's not all that racy--in fact, any perverts who went to see this back in the day probably walked out bitterly disappointed. There is a "jailbait babysitter"--a seventeen-year-old character named "Vicky", played by an actress who was obviously a few years older than that (she kind of looks like Keira Knightly or a blonde, pre-felon Winona Ryder), but there are only a few brief nude/ sex scenes involving her or the rest of the female cast.

This doesn't really make it as teen movie though either since the characters not only don't act much like normal teenagers, but often don't even act like normal human beings. "Vicky" won't give it up to her nice guy boyfriend, but she has no problem letting her friends have strange toga party/Roman-style orgy in the house where she is babysitting, and later she gets involved with an older woman, who turns out to be a prostitute, and agrees to lose her virginity to a bald middle-aged guy without actually collecting any money! (Maybe this is a concession to the middle-aged perverts in the audience). Her boyfriend meanwhile passes up several opportunities to have sex with comely, naked lasses, and is beaten up by his own friends because he won't host an orgy in his new van, all so can remain loyal to this girl who seems willing to sleep with just about anyone but him! Definitely not normal adolescent behavior. Part of the strangeness also comes from the incredibly low-budget, including a lack of sync sound in many places. The toga scene for instance involves a shower orgy, lots of dancing, much destruction and havoc, the protagonist being felt up by a male guest and hitting said guest with a fire poker, and then the parents coming home and walking in on the whole thing--yet this long sequence is shot entirely without dialogue and with only a single weird 'boogie-woogie" song playing on the soundtrack!

You would probably expect I would pan this movie, right? But I kind of liked it, perhaps because you would never get away with making something like this today, a movie that would horrify the moralists, bore the perverts, and baffle the teenagers (and probably everyone else). It kind of reminded of the contemporary film "Malibu High" which recently got a DVD release as part of the "Grindhouse Collection". This is similarly bizarre, but actually less sordid than that one. Hopefully its lurid title won't scare niche DVD distributors and more adventurous cult-movie viewers away.
