Terrific genre flick
8 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Back in the early 90s, there was a whole genre of erotic thrillers that has disappeared now. This is a solid entry, featuring Andrew Stevens, who would go on to direct a number of this type of picture, as a Hollywood ne'er do well, living with ageing movie star, Sally Kirkland, about to make a comeback in a movie featuring Stevens. Rose is brought in as a body double as Kirkland's character would never strip for a film. Luckily, Kirkland herself has no such restriction, and gives us a lurid masturbation scene that is a highlight. The plot involves shady dealings, suspicious characters and gunplay, further complicated by a clever conceit of slipping in scenes from the movie within the movie, which appears to have a similar plot to the actual movie. The cast give it their all, to an incessant synth score and brightly colored costumes and sets. All in all, it's a fun ride.
