As an "extension" of sorts to Tales from the Darkside and Monsters, from the gang at Laurel, this not too shabby tale directed by Romero colleague, John Harrison, has the look and feel very familiar to its anthology relatives of the 80s. Christopher Atkins is what many might consider a "ladykiller", a womanizing "counselor" with a reputation for bedding women and having an impressive "prowess". A new client, the wealthy millionaire living in Morocco, named Akhbar (Ed Setrakian), invites him to his palatial estate. Becoming enchanted with Akhbar's daughter, Kara (Roya Megnot), Atkins' smarmy, cocky Bitterman finds a lady not so interested in being seduced, extends an extra effort in adding her as a conquest, a notch in his belt. In fact, Kara wants nothing to do with the sleazy pretty boy. However, Betterman gets visits from a lady that seems to be Kara, but he's in for quite a surprise! I think the conclusion will be especially satisfying for those who loathe the type of roaming eye, libido-driven, sexually-motivated, woman-devouring scumbags with great looks and financially successful. In the opening scene, after meeting with Akhbar, Betterman and his secretary neck and kiss a little bit, not long after he sets a lustful eye towards Kara. He arrives in Morocco, purposely leaving behind his secretary because he doesn't want her in the way. The fate that occurs to Betterman at the end couldn't have happened to a more deserving individual.
Rather erotic, with some nice blue lighting during night scenes, and Kara is delish. Atkins is good as a guy you just love to despise he has the looks and confidence, with that wicked smile, to pull it off. Despite its budget, the show does a decent job of making us believe it is in Morocco due to some solid set decoration.
