the most boring of the 3 lost Lewis sexploitation flicks
24 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

This flick was supposed to be lost until early 2013 when it was discovered together with two other sexploitations made by Herschell Gordon Lewis. He used a synonym to direct and produce those flicks but finally they are out for the geeks of the genre, they are even out on Blu Ray.

Were as Ecstasies Of Women from the same year was entertaining this was rather a slow moving flick. And the acting was rather laughable and stiff. The story itself is about a brother Todd (Kip Marsch) and his sister Abilene (Sharon Matt) living orphaned on a farm. When Abilene goes for a walk and come across some water she undresses and enjoys the water but her brother is peeping tom and start to get feelings for her. Abilene is aware of him looking and is also getting feelings for him and one evening when she's naked she screams and Todd enters. From there on they have love. But after a while Todd wants to get to know other women, and so he's off to a bar were Linda (Bambi Allen) seduces him and they have sex after a while. Funny to see how hard it was for Bambi to get undressed. The next day Linda goes to the farm to have sex with Todd but she comes across Abilene just being raped. You could see it coming miles away, a lesbian sex scene.

I was searching for Lewis lost flicks and especially this one for only one reason. It was shot at the Spahn Ranch, just in the period that Charles Manson was hiring the ranch to commit his Tate-Labianca murders on August 9th and 10th, 1969. In 1970 the ranch was destroyed by a fire.

A rather tame sexploitation and really boring acting especially in the beginning. And it also contains a lot of flew shots and bad sound (the hsoot out at the end)There's nudity to spot of course here and there but i found Ecstasies better. But this is notorious due the Spahn ranch fact. And have a close look at the close-up of Bambi's breasts, it's clear to see that they were fake.

Gore 0/5 Nudity 2,5/5 Effects 0/5 Story 1/5 Comedy 0/5
