In "Wearing the Pants", Gabrielle is a lonely housewife who dreams up having her way with a neighbor who steals her underwear. In "Nightmare Alley", Felicity has an encounter with a boxer/rapist who turns on her desires she never knew existed in her. In "The Girls", Francine develops an attraction to a large-breasted woman during a daily stay in a steam room. In "Fruit Salad", Imogene has fantasies involving a 'well-endowed' man in the form of the sea god Neptune during a fruit basket binge.

Soft-core sex comedy is a hit and miss
7 December 2008 | by LoneWolfAndCubSee all my reviews

The recent documentary, Not Quite Hollywood, has inspired me to see every movie featured in it. Recently I was lucky enough to receive for my birthday 12 Ozploitation flicks, this being one of them. I did not go into this expecting much, and I did not get it. Although it has some genuinely funny moments, and some 'what the hell' scenes, the rest was just random and nonsensical. There is very little plot in this movie, as it is based around a Professor explaining 10 common female fantasies. Of course, these are all acted out for us, some very explicit, others not so much.

I suppose you have to be in the right mood to get into Fantasm, and although it is not overly bad, it is nothing to write home about. Richard Franklin is a competent director (he did a great job of Psycho II and the Hitchcockian thriller Roadgames) and it shows here. The film flows well and never really gets boring, just odd. Fantasm is only recommended to those who want to see every Ozploitation film or someone who is just looking for a cheap laugh.

2½/5
