Fantastic smut!
14 November 2005 | by (Bear, Delaware) – See all my reviews

Horror and porn seem like they should go hand-in-hand but it rarely works out for the betterment of either genre. Hardgore is really no exception but it is one of the first attempts so I'll cut it some slack. Forced Entry is probably the best example of mixing the two genres but it is not nearly as much fun. Hardgore seems more like a campy drive-in affair in the same vein as Don't Look in the Basement (with XXX sex, of course) than as a serious attempt at "roughie" porn, a category into which some fans might lump it.

The shenanigans kick off when Lucy is committed to a hospital to treat her nymphomania. The nurses are very friendly as they play "Hide The Digit" and other games with Lucy. But then those sapphic nurses start dying on her. In one case a nurse is burned by a smoking-hot vibrator and neither of the two know how to remove it. Riot! So Lucy starts to investigate the strange goings-on and discovers that a Satanic sex/death cult is holding orgies in the basement. The proccedings she witnesses are comprised of a devil-masked leader chanting "Nirvana" while a whole hairy mess is taking place in front of him (and to him). The orgy's climax comes when a masked executioner bangs a girl who's head is in a guillotine. I'm sure you see where this is going...

Seriously, this thing's a hell of a lotta fun. If it weren't for the porno angle, this film could easily make it onto one of those cheap Brentwood comps. The score is superbly awful as is the psychedelic slant that permeates the film. The gory bits and special effects are of the cheap but very entertaining variety; in one standout scene Lucy is secured to a wall while flying rocket dildos spray her with liters of baby batter. All in all, this is the kind of limburger that will leave its stinky mark on your soul and I love it for that.

I have only been able to locate this at Alpha Blue Archives, purveyors of fine filth, but I believe there are some other releases of Hardgore floating around that may be from UK distributors or whatnot. The copy I own looks very good save for actual wear on the film. No extras on my DVD but there is one 70s roughie loop called "Never Talk to Strangers" featuring a couple of the talents from the feature.
