Zoe Trilling saves this film
16 April 2005 | by BloodTheTelepathicDogSee all my reviews

I became smitten with Zoe after watching her in Night of the Demons 2, and she delivers a solid performance here as a young woman out of place in a much different society than she is used to.

While visiting her father in the Middle East, sexpot Zoe stumbles into the seedier locations of this foreign land. Although her father tries to keep her on a spiritual God-fearing path, she wavers. She takes delight in the sins of the flesh at her impressionable age, and finds romance with a wealthy Arab man.

The ending isn't strong at all, and is rather disappointing, but Zoe will keep your attention. She excels at portraying inner turmoil and has a feisty nature that can't be quelled. There is a plethora of nudity, both male and female, but to see Zoe disrobed is worth treading through the lush decadent atmosphere.
