Kate Vernon's sexual escapades with Lou Diamond Phillips spell trouble for her
5 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Dangerous Touch" (1994) is a neo-noir in John Grant's list. I'll vouch for its being a neo-noir. It's an erotic thriller, which in this case means you get to see several scenes of Lou Diamond Phillips making love (simulated of course) to Kate Vernon nude, and one brief scene of a fully unclothed call girl making love to Vernon.

The story is co-written by Phillips and Kurt Voss. I have favorably reviewed the writing of Voss before; and again this story manages to hold one's interest quite well by placing Vernon in a very difficult position. Phillips directed. This movie is a bit drawn out, a bit slow, a bit hard to believe and a bit too heavy on the sex scenes, as erotic thrillers tend to be. It has some minor plot holes. If we do not expect too much of a b-movie like this, we may see that this one is not bad.

Vernon's character is a successful public figure whose books sell and who has a radio show in which she, a doctorate in psychology, offers call-ins practical living advice. The story depends on us accepting that she is rather uninhibited in choosing her sex partners and staying with them because of their sexual prowess even after learning they're hustlers and up to no good. Once over that early hurdle, the story flows right along at first predictably but then with some ingenuity and unpredictability leading to a good finale. The story actually has some depth to it and character arcs. Max Gail appears as a patient of Vernon.

I think the IMDb rating of 3.3 is much too low. This is not bad as these erotic thrillers go.
