Night Rhythms (1992 Video)
User ReviewsReview this title
Well, one night, a woman by the name of "Honey", played by Tracy Tweed (sister of Shannon) calls his show with her sob story, but later on, shows up in the studio. He tells the producer to put music on while they have a "philosophical discussion", which leads to whoopee. Unbeknownst to West, someone has turned the radio frequency back on, and the listeners hear them having sex, but then, they hear Honey being strangled to death. West is knocked out, and when he comes to, he sees Honey's corpse, and he flees. The rest of the movie is about West clearing his name of the murder. Of course, on the way he has time to make love with just about anyone who'll help him, providing she's female and good-looking.
The movie is very steamy and erotic, with lots of gorgeous women, and a few OK ones. The best one is Deborah Driggs, who plays West's ex-stripper friend Cinnamon, who helps out the most with his plight. The aforementioned Ms. Tweed burns up the screen in her short appearance, and the lady who works as a masseuse is primo. Sam "Flash Gordon" Jones, who plays a detective chasing West, and veteran actor David Carradine, who plays a shady strip club owner, add some name power.
This is a pretty good film in the genre, probably the pinnacle of Gregory Dark's soft-core films. Mirror Images 2 and the first two Secret Games movies are great stuff as well.
The main plot revolved around a late night radio host who talks to lonely frustrated women. On one night a stripper is mysteriously killed after spending time with the DJ. He decides to uncover the truth behind the murder and clear his name with a female accomplice. This leads the pair in to the seedy underground of strip joints and brothels.
Firstly this is not one of those movies that one writes home about as I predicted the ending even before the movie had finished. One factor that constantly irritated me was the use of lighting. There were white lights in almost all the scenes. I could not help but appreciate the female cast as there were some hot women in the movie. With some soft sex scenes and mild tintilation, the movie sustains the viewer's attention. However it is a shame that the cast seemed to sleep through the whole time and appeared to look uninterested with what was going on.
