Trying to be punk or cool gets old pretty quick
26 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Porn in the '80s included many attempts to be "with the times" with punk styling or other declasse fake-coolness. SQUALOR MOTEL fails miserably at this, courtesy of kink specialist Kim Christy.

Colleen Brennan does her best to try and save the fiasco, as the horny (and busty, she is after all the former Sharon Kelly of soft-core fame) desk clerk at the seedy title spot. Film gets off to an underwhelming start when an odd couple arrive, only seen from the back and at ankle height, with the scene repeated out of order late in the movie (it features Randy West & girl friend).

Its name left mysterious, much of the action takes place in the motel's Reptile Room. Basically we have odd sex scenes, with strange sets, lighting and camera angles, sort of an untalented porn meister's attempt at Expressionism. Voyeurism is the name of the game, with motel manager Nick Random the main culprit in an embarrassing performance.

Various unrelated scenes were more creepy than erotic as far as I'm concerned, though at least Kim avoided the dullness of many wall-to-wall sex efforts during this time frame. Odd makeup (as if Kim was taken with David Bowie's androgynous look of the '70s) dominates, with Jamie Gillis wearing a ton and hamming it up as a huckster who instead of displaying endless watches under his coat is hawking sex toys.

At one point instead of Furies or 3 witches Kim has 3 trannies appear, not involved in the action but as voyeurs and apparently there merely to add to the visual strangeness. Mistress Tantala pops up in a light s&m scene, but she is not dishing out the punishment but rather receiving.

It all adds up to nothing, hardly even in the league of so many similar efforts by the Dark Brothers which I recall were a big deal way back then but of only minor nostalgia interest today.
