Lover Come Hack To Me
8 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is far from an original idea; newlyweds stranded on their wedding night and their choice is to sleep in the car or to take a short walk through the rain to the mysterious house yonder where they effect entry only to find that while it is empty there is a fire waiting to be lit and upstairs a bed that beckons them. There is also an axe on the wall, and they are not your average honeymooning couple. For one thing, Charles has married Peggy purely for her money; as she is played by the gorgeous Amanda Plummer, he is clearly greedy and blind in equal measure.

There is obviously going to be a twist in the tale, and indeed there is, but it is not the sort of twist you would expect, which is probably why it is a twist. Perhaps this setting is a little too perfect, and perhaps Peggy is not quite the little innocent Charles thinks, even though she is a virgin? The sex scenes are not overly gratuitous, but the nudity would have been more than desirable if she had taken off her clothes rather than he his.
