HOUSEWIFE FROM HELL is a godawful sex comedy with no sex and no comedy. It also tries to go for a supernatural plot, but it's so ludicrous and poorly-achieved that that doesn't ring true for a second either. The film's best scene involves the husband bumping off his wife in the opening moments by electrocuting her in the bathtub, but it's all downhill from there.
The problem with HOUSEWIFE FROM HELL is that it has zero storyline. Rather, it's a series of sketches, half of which are filled with the lamest comedy imaginable, and the other half of which involve women stripping off. There's a LOT of stripping in this movie; we see about a dozen women removing their bras, revealing their silicon-enhanced assets, and it all has an oddly grimy and sleazy feel to it.
It's certainly neither erotic nor alluring; rather a depressing slice of early '90s adult entertainment, desperate to attract the attention of male viewers. The cast is so bad that a number of genuine porn stars are present (hello, Ron Jeremy!) and you can pretty much imagine the calibre and delivery of the script just from that.
