Murder, jealousy & blackmail
1 September 2009 | by (Canterbury, England) – See all my reviews

A story of lust, murder, jealousy, blackmail - but mostly sex.

The UK video release of the film, called Sex Crazy, had a completely generic cover - with absolutely no hints at plot, cast, director, origin, or that it would be at all a feature film. So it came as a bit of a pleasant surprise to find a complete feature film with a proper plot, never mind several plot twists.

Cast, writing, setting and production values of the film are mostly fine, with one exception: one actor was aged by the make-up department, and not to the best effect, to put it politely. There was really no need for this measure anyway, as it would have sufficed to cast an older actor for the role.

This aside, the main problem with the film is that it cannot really decide what it wants to be: a sex film with crime elements, or a crime drama beefed up with sex scenes. As a result, it is a bit of both and somehow neither: the sex drags the viewer's attention away from the plot, and the plot elements undermine any budding eroticism from developing. Considering that the UK released I watched was cut by 9 minutes I have to allow for the possibility that the original version of the film balances sex and crime to a better effect.
