Underrated, surprisingly tasteful and atmospheric!
19 July 2004 | by (Marlow, England) – See all my reviews

Erotic thriller starring Joan Severance anyone? What would you imagine the film would be like? Cheesy? Jazz music with smooth sax playing over the numerous pointless sex scenes? Well that's what I assumed but that is by no means what means what the film is like. It has a strange atmosphere to it and the build up to Severances infidelity is intriguing.

The film is well shot and there's a sense of actual artistry and this never resorts to the cheesy clichés we have come to know from Joan and her soft core peers Shannon Tweed and Shannon Whirry. What I also really liked was the score from George Clinton. It helps that he has a bit of class unlike many musicians working in low budget movies. Clinton has done many scores for big screen movies and has a good pedigree for a movie this size, and his score is interesting and atmospheric.

Overall this was surprisingly watchable. It has some intrigue without being overly entertaining. It is certainly the best thing I have seen from the gorgeous Severance. ***
