Good idea, bad flick!
15 August 2004 | by (sparks, nevada) – See all my reviews

This is pretty bad, even for an exploitation movie, but the lead actress is well-cast and attractive. Good black and white cinematography and schmaltzy typical music. This type of film is strangely compelling (besides the obvious attraction of the "nudity"), especially the black and white ones. They are slightly more realistic that soap operas and create a reality all their own (they're like home movies of sad and unhappy people in America).

A 3 out of 10. Some of the better exploitation flicks (THE AGONY OF LOVE, SPIDER BABY, THE SADIST) are quite enjoyable, but they stand out in a genre that isn't TOO concerned with quality.
