Brad T. Gottfred,
Unaware of the local Hooded Strangler lurking around her door, poor Helen Doe decides to visit her aunt but, instead, winds up at the "House of Horror on the hill." There, she and six other Tortured Females are held by white slavers.
This is another look at the occult as inspired by Roger Corman and his view of the dark side. Jealous witch Erica uses her powers to influence her unwitting husband Larry and his colleagues, who all work for a big law firm.
After the death of her parents, a young girl arrives at a convent and brings a sinister presence with her. Is it her enigmatic imaginary friend, Alucarda, who is to blame? Or is there a satanic force at work?
"Over 18 and ready". . . to star in a sleazy sex flick
As the title suggest this is about a girl who is "over 18" (quite a bit over 18 judging from the looks of her) "and ready". . . to star in a sleazy sex film (not unlike this one). This girl is literally willing to do ANTHING just to land a role in a sleazy sex movie. Now of course, a halfway decent-looking girl who is willing to do ANYTHING probably wouldn't have all that much difficulty landing a role in a sleazy sex film either today or back in 1969. (And "halfway decent-looking" definitely describes the very, um, voluptuous leading actress here--from some angles she looks pleasantly plump, from other not-quite-so-pleasantly plump). But although she has a job working as a secretary for a sleazy sex producer (and he definitely didn't hire for her typing, given a scene where she--or the actress playing her--tries to type), he is strangely reluctant to cast her in his sleazy sex movie, at least until she, uh,sweetens the deal. Of course,in real-life Hollywood it's more often the "serious" actresses who are trying to get parts in "real" movies who end up doing their audition on the casting couch than the porno actresses, but we're obviously in some sleazy porn producer's fantasy here about what it's supposedly like to be sleazy porn director.
Anyway, she gets the small part from the producer (and she also gets to be in the movie too). The film itself is really a hoot. One scene has the heroine being tied up naked and whipped. I'm not sure if it's the inept acting of the lead actress or if it's the inept acting of the character she is playing (although I strongly suspect the former), but this is the most unconvincing cinematic whipping scene I've ever witnessed (and, unfortunately, I've witnessed quite a few). They don't even manage to sync up her incredibly unconvincing whimpers of pain with the obviously fake sounds of the whip supposedly hitting her (entirely offscreen). Still I would have liked to see more of this "movie" because it looks a lot more entertaining than the one we're watching.
Unfortunately instead of the any more of the movie-within-the-movie, we're stuck with just the movie where our intrepid "actress" gets sexually involved with the homely bisexual wife of the sleazy producer (you'd think even a sleazy Hollywood producers could do a lot better)and her black maid. The black maid is easily the most attractive woman in the movie, but she has very dark skin, and thanks to the substandard transfer in the DVD I saw, she often appears only as kind of muddy silhouette whose body you can hardly make out. Anyway, there's plenty of permutations of straight sex, lesbian sex, interracial sex, and (of course) interracial lesbian sex, as well as many not-too-flattering longeurs of the heroine reclining in a bathtub that is several sizes too small for her slightly overweight body. This is definitely not very erotic and it's often pretty boring, but it is entertainingly ridiculous in a few places.
