cuttingly erotic 60s melodrama
25 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

Another successful Joe Sarno suburban erotica opus, this one is executed in a decidedly minor key, more of a chamber drama than a critique of social mores. It rearranges the themes and plot strategies of his earlier works (such as Sin in the Suburbs) with a more subtle mise-en-scene and a surprising tinge of misogyny. There isn't much nudity or on-screen lovemaking, but the attitude of the principals and some clever imagery makes it quite lascivious nonetheless. There's no occultism this time, but the de rigueur masked party serves as the nasty climactic scene.
