This is an interesting softcore sex film from Chuck Vincent. The late Vincent was considered one the best directors of both softcore and hardcore porn and he also made a few semi-successful forays out of the porn ghetto in the 80's. This kind of resembles one of Vincent's later 80's films, the "Repulsion"-like horror film "Deranged". Like "Deranged" this uses a number of hardcore porn actors like Darby Lloyd Rains, but the lead is one "Lydia Cassell" aka Sandra Cassell aka Sandra Peabody, the appealing young actress who played Mary Collingwood in Wes Craven's original "Last House on the Left". (She was also in "Teenage Hitchhikers", which finally got a much-deserved DVD release recently). Any movie that involves the lovely, lovely Cassel/Peabody lulling around naked, doing perverted things with fruit, and engaging in various orgy-type situations is certainly not a waste of time in my book, but this is actually a pretty good.
A girl named "Anna" picks up a pay phone in New York City and hears strange voices. Seemingly hypnotized by the voices, she engages in bizarre sexual fantasies that at some point cross over into reality. This is not as good as "Repulsion", of course, nor as serious and depressing as "Deranged", but it's certainly more interesting than your usual softcore sex fodder. There's some voice-over, but very little dialogue. And Vincent plays interesting music (including some classical pieces) over the sex scenes, so you don't have to listen to the characters moan and grunt or endure the usual waa-waa porn music. There's obviously not much of a plot here, but I don't think anyone will really mind too much.
