Once again, Tane McClure takes over the lead role in a movie franchise started by Shannon Tweed. I know these two women resemble each other, but this is getting ridiculous.
Illicit Dreams 2, however, is a watchable film. Tane McClure is great in these "psychotic ex-girlfriend" roles.
Tim Abell is Jeff, a lonely photographer whose wife died not too long ago. His friends encourage him to start dating again, and his two primary, right-in-your-face options are his assistant, Terri (played by Teresa Langley) and his star model, Erica (played by Jennifer Burton). He even has a dream about himself and Erica getting it on right there on the set. However, he has just entered a "business" relationship with an ad executive of some sort, I believe...her name is Lynn Barrett (played by Tane McClure, the role she was born to play). Lynn refuses Jeff's advances at first, but eventually she gives in and they go on a date. They chat about the events in their past, and eventually Jeff realizes it's time to go.
"Well, it's getting late," Jeff says, effectively putting an end to the conversation. "Not too late," Lynn replies, giving Jeff a "let's have sex" look. Jeff is no sucker; he gives in pretty quick and before you know it, he's got Lynn in the sack. Later on is where Lynn starts becoming....you know, a head case.
First, she breaks into the Jeff's house and helps herself to his backyard pool. He walks in, she's naked. Well, he's no sucker....off to the water to get some in-the-pool lovin'. Then there's the 50 phone calls a day, the writing of Jeff's name over and over in her address book like she's some star-struck 13-year-old girl, the verbal harassment of Jeff's assistant, and then the topping on the proverbial sundae....an encounter with Jeff as he's trying to put the moves on Erica.
In the best scene of the film by far, Tane McClure shows why she's got the jealous ex-girlfriend character down to a science. "Oh, you're not the only little slut he's been seeing behind my back, don't think you're the only one," Lynn rants. Then she pulls the "I'm carrying his baby" card. Priceless! Of course, Erica is befuddled by the whole thing, and walks away with her dignity badly beaten to a bloody pulp. Lynn plays the whole thing off like it was a joke.
Lynn then gets psychotic from here, so you know the killing begins, leading up to the final confrontation between Jeff and Lynn. Well, you know who wins this one, so why should I bother to tell the 3 or 4 of you who are gonna stick it out to the bitter end?
The storyline, while done many times before, is quite good. Since there aren't that many sex scenes, there should be more meaningful dialogue and character development to make up for it, and there is. Overall, this was a pretty good film.
Women: B- (Tane is the best looking one here, but Jennifer Burton is nothing to sneeze at. Teresa Langley was kind of just "there" this time. Nikki Fritz was in the opening scene, so that counts for something.)
Sex: B (Not as many sex scenes as other movies that populate the erotic thriller genre, but they weren't out of place and were okay for what they were.)
Story: A- (A surprisingly good story, decent dialogue and moderate character development. The writers didn't have much for Erica and Terri to do, so this was primarily a two-character movie.)
Overall: B+ (For once, the "Story" grade helps a film out rather than hurt it. This film is odd because the sex scenes are the vehicle to link the various plot elements together, which is the complete opposite of other films in this genre.)
