Completely stupid - but fun enough - black comedy thriller
27 March 2007 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

I saw director Wolfgang Büld's 'Twisted Sisters' not too long ago, and thought it was a decent little twisted flick. This earlier film, however, makes Twisted Sisters look like The Sound of Music - as they don't get much weirder and completely nonsensical than Penetration Angst! The plot obviously takes its main plot point from the idea of a woman's anxiety when it comes to having sex for the first time. It could be said that this is a 'feminist' film, although personally I very much doubt that was on the director's mind...even if he does seem to have a thing men faring badly when it comes to sex (judging by the two films I've seen from him). The plot focuses on a young lady named Helen. Helen is raped one night in a car, and is surprised when her attacker disappears! It soon transpires that he has, in fact, disappeared into her; and Helen then finds herself with an insatiable thirst for men. Meanwhile, a man named Dennis, whom Helen knows, begins dating a Siamese twin...a love story with disastrous consequences.

If there's one thing that can definitely be said about this film, it's that it makes you think about things you'd never normally think about! The thought of the implications and logistics of having sex with Siamese twins never entered my head before seeing this film! There's a heavy dose of humour, and the director seems to really enjoy throwing in a barrage of ridiculous ideas. The acting is mostly atrocious, and the dubbing is even worse; but clearly the star of the show is the plot, which is always enough of a distraction. As if a (literally) hungry vagina isn't enough of a silly reason for a film; the other plot line, while somewhat more possible, is no less stupid! There are a couple of decent scenes in the movie, and one of them involves Siamese twins and an electric knife! The film isn't really all that gory, but there's plenty of slutty women and whatnot. It all boils down to a conclusion that (somehow) manages to bring everything together, and while this is the sort of film that will very much divide opinion; I'd recommend it to anyone that doesn't mind incoherency and ridiculousness so long as there's fun to be had.
