Dull, dismal night darling
10 March 2014 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

Here isn't a bad story, about a bored woman, who's forced to participate in some pornos, by a friend of her husbands, where if she doesn't comply, she'll endure all that shame and humiliation whatever. Now what happened to the movie. There's heavy doses of nudity, and Vincent Ball, who we've seen in a lot of Aussie stuff, is a nasty piece of work as the blackmailer. One scene has the husband invited with him to a strip dance, where by two very young girls, put on a show for a few other dirty old pervs watch. The wife too, we do feel sorry for. She's very old fashioned, full of morality, who gets in some deep water, all on the count of her husbands negligence. She becomes a shock witness to orgies, what have you, that Ball hosts. Overall, the film is just weak, where they're should of been more plot, turning points, you name it, that strip scene kind of making up for it, that scene still lingering in my mind. It would be great, if we could erase this movie and start all over again. Just watch this for the skin factor, that's it.
