The beginning of the movie, we meet Mitch Gaylord, a mute bum who pays prostitutes to strip so he can photograph them. He sends these pictures to Elizabeth Sandifer, who plays the sexually frustrated wife of a man who owns a magazine called "Sexual Outlaws", where husband and wife serve as the editors. To spice up their marriage, the character played by Elizabeth Sandifer, Lisa Bauer, responds to Mitch Gaylord's character, Francis Badham's advertisement. While they send each other erotic pictures and flirt by mail, one of Francis' prostitutes is killed. The police suspect Francis, who stumbles into Lisa, reveals who he is to her, and gets her to help him prove her innocence. Lisa participates in the entrapping of the real killer, and afterwards goes back to Francis' apartment for an erotic love scene.Written by
A Truly Lurid Movie, Too Cheap To Call It A Classic!
I have to say, at one time in my life, as a confirmed fan of genre cinema, i'm not ashamed to say that i also included in my collection, the many movies and their sequels made under the umbrella of Axis Films International, Not just because they were soft core porn flicks, but because they had that little something more behind them, as was the case with the majority of the Axis catalogue, many directed by the great man himself Gregory Dark/Hippolyte and produced by Andrew [Maniac Garroni.
I guess when the film slate rises, they have to farm out certain ideas, or foster in other talent, as in the case of "Sexual Outlaws" directed by Edwin Brown and written by him and i guess his wife Summer Brown. I had never of Edwin Brown, so i scanned through his biography on the movie database, and found and very small but very select list of credits much akin to that of Gregory Dark.
Now i've seen many movies made by Mr Dark but Alas not that many by Mr Brown, but having viewed "Outlaws" on many occasions down through the years, it is safe to say, that the director of this movie doesn't have the same visual eye or dare i say sexual flair for a movie of this kind.
Perhaps i'm wrong, maybe this is the way the film was meant to come across, i mean the Sexual Outlaws of the title refers to an Adult meeting magazine, but i have to say, this was a truly lurid movie too cheap to call it a classic of its brethern kind.
The cheesy delight that can be gleamed from this movie, is simply for the sight of former olympic gymnast Mitch Gaylord parading around as a voyueristic, mute photographer who only communicates via a pencil and paper, and who carries around in his bag apart from his camera equipment, sultry lingerie for his models to wear.
However his models aren't what you'd call sweet young innocents but rather ladies of the night. Anyhow what pictures that he takes he submits to the magazine of the film's title, and yes former Olympic gymnast Gaylord does indeed do a very different sort of gymnastics within this movie [for another Gaylord highlight, please check out the very first "Animal Instincts" movie] but on this very night the very model that he chooses ends up dead at the hands of....
Hang on a minute, i would never spoil a movie as bad as this for anyone who wishes to idle away the odd 80 to 90 minutes to wit this movie runs, it's just a shame it was in the same league as "Undercover" or "Pamela Principle"
Anyway i'll give it a very 6/10 for aiding and abetting the sleaze factor, and yes that does include the very arresting artwork on the cover, always to the forefront in every Axis film, that it would appear they use to make.
