Storyline

Sharon is a young office worker who sexually teases, seduces and then cries 'rape' on various men just to see them emotionally suffer for her own man-hating, twisted amusement leading to one lovestruck boyfriend being sent to prison, the financial ruin of another, and the meltdown and death of a third victim. Sharon even teases her lesbian roommate, Paula, by come-ons and then brushing her off. But eventually, Sharon meets her match when she comes-onto Tony, a controlling and misogynistic thug whom reacts to her teases and threats in a way she never prepared herself for.

Stacey Walker's performance makes it worthwhile.
2 May 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The story for this one is pretty simple, simple enough it doesn't really fill a 69 minute running time, so a fair amount of padding is utilized. The incredible Stacey Walker ("The Notorious Daughter of Fanny Hill") delights in her rotten role as Sharon Winters, a man hating sexpot who gets her kicks getting guys all hot and bothered and then screaming for the cops with cries of "rape", delighting in their resulting misfortune. One goes to jail, one is financially ruined, and one suffers a particularly nasty fate. It's not until Sharon meets Tony (Bob Todd), a chauvinistic, brutal singer, that she finally meets her match. This is the kind of exploitation flick this viewer would have dearly liked to have enjoyed a little more. Instead, it's just too draggy for its own good, with scenes of seduction that just go on and on. What does make this tolerable enough are the physical charms of Ms. Walker, who has so much fun treating people - even her lesbian roommate Paula (Sharon Carr)! - like garbage. This leads to that one great line with which many of us who have seen the promotional sequence on all Something Weird DVD's are familiar: "Paula, I may be a bitch, but I'll *never* be a butch." Now *that's* priceless. The almost non-stop garage rock music on the soundtrack does serve as atmospheric accompaniment; it's just too bad that there's not a little more action, as this could have been a trash flick really worth savouring. Of course, we can always have fun with the unbelievably amateurish acting in the supporting roles, such as Tom Hughes as the shy and awkward Dick Owens. Writer / producer David F. Friedman, one of the all time legends in the exploitation genre, cameos as a juror near the beginning; the direction is by Byron Mabe, who'd also acted for Friedman in "The Defilers" and directed "She-Freak". There's definite curiosity value here in seeing vintage black & white trash (shot in style by the great Laszlo Kovacs) such as this flick; it is worth seeing for people eager to check out the Something Weird catalogue. Kovacs and co-star Sam Melville (who plays Lowell Carter) work under pseudonyms. Six out of 10.
