miserable attempt at a film
27 November 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a very odd film. It seems to have been set up as a 'rough' (sub genre of sexploitation movies epitomised by films of Doris Wishman) and then got cold feet. Its all here, sex, violence, rape and murder and yet it is not. Its more like a soft core roughie, still leaving a bad taste in the mouth but stopping short of fully delivering. The director has to take most of the blame because the cinematography is very good and far too good for most of the action. Leading lady, Jamie Karson tries hard but looks completely bewildered throughout, as well she might. Towards the end, just when I was ready to give up, there is a kidnap and our lead is thrust into a surreal setting with some 80 year old ex-starlet with an enormous cigarette holder and a range of women dressed as if for some 20s flapper session and what look like Christmas decorations hanging from the ceiling. Turns out this is supposed to be a brothel but for several minutes this plays out without us hearing the dialogue just a rather effective jazzy score (maybe they forgot to record the sound) and then we speed to a nihilistic ending which is probably the best section of this miserable attempt at a film.
