Not so hot summer
5 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It must've been a film like this that director Gail Palmer thought of when she recently gave her husband credit for directing all of her films in a recent interview. Interacial sex among mature consenting adults has always made good porno, but this is not anything near that class of film. So kidnapping, subjugation, and rape are bad enough to completely stereotype the black characters, it's even worst that the victim as played by Lisa Baker seems completely devoid of any emotional expression throughout it all other than pain or fear. There's a bit of romantic undertones from the gang leader but his sex scenes are too quiet. The editing is shoddy, the film scratchy and the violence and sex is fake looking with closeups that appear to be edited in from double stand-ins. Rent this or buy used and unlabeled if you must endure it out of curiosity. This could have been something better without one-dimensional characters and plotting.
