Storyline

Howard Thorne is a rapist in Los Angeles: he meets women at work and at parties or he sees them walking down the street, and he follows them, terrifies them, and assaults them. He also dreams about these assaults, and he's unclear how much of what he's done is real and how much is fantasy. He ignores his heroin-using wife, Vicki, who tries everything she can think of to get his sexual attention. Howard and Vicki go separately to a costume party where she learns the full truth about his nature and where he is stalked by one of his recent victims. Individualized versions of Hell await Howard and Vicki. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Lose your mind to MONDO KEYHOLE!
17 July 2001 | by (Victoria, Australia) – See all my reviews

Nick Moriarty plays Howard, the owner of Arts Products, a mail-order service that specializes in adults-only films, pictures, art-work and even records like Punishment in Hi-Fi! Always dressed in a stuffy buisness suit with stuffy job and coming home to his depressed junky wife, Howard seems bored with his life so he goes out and rapes women. A man-hating lesbian blackbelt finds out eventually and has her revenge.

MONDO KEYHOLE has become virtually unknown after being deleted from the Something Weird Video collection which is a pity because it's a really interesting film and on top of that it was written and co-directed by Jack Hill! It goes against the porn industry with it's narration describing Howard as having committed "the worst crime of them all - RAPE!" which all leads to his job. There are also some suprisingly very funny depictions of these adults-only films and their directors ("I've put my heart and soul in to this one!") and if you look carefully you'll spot Dave Friedman's name written in big letters inside an open magazine. Despite it's extremely low budget, KEYHOLE features some terrific, mind-boggling effects and sequences (some using a negative print) including a skull lighting up in flames and a watch swinging back and forth during the opening scene. Also during a wild dress-up party everyone freaks out after drinking the punch spiked with LSD.

This definately for accuired tastes. It's very weird, arty and dosn't end up making much sense, but is still a visual delight. I only wonder what Jack Hill thought of it....
