A real classic of its kind
Deservedly regarded as one of the best movies of Porn's 'Golden Age', TABOO excels in every department.

The stunning Kay Parker is unforgettable as the frustrated and finally incestuous mother Barbara Scott, bringing an integrity to her role that is rare in this genre. Thoroughly sensual, but never remotely sleazy, she became on the strength of this portrayal the most renowned British born porn actress, except ironically in her native country where censorship prevented it from being widely shown.

Kirdy Stevens clearly went to considerable pains with every aspect of the film and its successors and brings maximum intensity to the sex scenes, not least the two between Barbara's son Mike Ranger and girlfriend Dorothy Le May, one in which they're joined by her friend Tawny Pearl. Stevens' skills are matched by those of his partner Helene Terrie whose excellent script includes some really funny dialogue, mainly for Barbara's wacky and outrageous confidante Gina who eats, breathes and sleeps sex. Played with great aplomb by the wonderful Juliet Anderson, she provides an amusing and erotic counterpoint to the main story.
