ZODIAC RAPIST delivers the porn turn-on goods, enhanced by an excellent print transfer for the After Hours DVD reissue. It's far better than the usual John Holmes offering.

Filmmaker John Lamb outdid himself this time with a classic underwater sex sequence, in which Holmes impales a buxom blonde in various positions, beautifully shot. Since Lamb's day job, when not doing porn, was working as a specialist filming underwater scenes (a la Ricou Browning), this is understandable.

Basically an all-sex movie, film's flimsy plot hook is Holmes cast as the Zodiac, a goof-ball sex maniac who's been raping local women, much to the consternation of the police as well as private dick Sam Dobbs (familiar porn face Buddy Boone). IMDb calls the film ZODIAC KILLER, but there's no murdering going on here, only sexual assault. And it's far more entertaining (for me at any rate) than David Fincher's tedious and empty ZODIAC.

A terrific cast of star beauties is a major reason why this film works, especially Sandy Dempsey and Nora Wieternik as Dobbs' secretaries, servicing their boss sexually non-stop, buxom Annette Michael as one of the Zodiac's happy victims, Andy Bellamy cute as ever as a resourceful police woman and Eve Orlon as another satisfied Holmes customer. The blonde in the pool is literally outstanding if uncredited, and a third secretary who teams up with Orlon for a threesome is impressive too.

Photography, not just underwater, is a big plus, with unusual angles and first-person shots adding to the arousal value. A stupid ending, some silly asides dubbed-in for voice-over and a crummy musical score are the film's chief downsides.
