| "When did you first discover sex?" "When I took a bath with my cousin."
Dr. Fellatingstein (Jamie Orlando) is a 19th century mad scientist who's created her own woman-made being, Frank (John Alexander). Frank was created for sexual purposes, but the guy just can't seem to get it up. In frustration. the good doctor calls in the Countess Sexcula (Debbie Collins), who tries various methods to get Frank stimulated. Unfortunately, he never remains stimulated for long.

Anachronisms abound gleefully in this oddball adults-only film, the only X rated picture to come out of Canada during this time. It flirts a little with classic sci-fi / horror, but it IS first and foremost a sex film. There's plenty of nudity and hardcore sex. In fact, the major set piece involves the filming of an impromptu orgy during a wedding. The whole enterprise just stops cold for this protracted set piece. One other major highlight involves some performance art enacted by an erotic dancer and a gorilla!

Obviously done on a budget, "Sexcula" isn't to be noted for its production value. But it manages to be fairly amusing, if overlong. It does know its audience and fulfills all requirements more than adequately. It's all set to a groovy rock score.

The ladies are lovely, and the performances are decent enough for this sort of thing. Alexander is frequently a hoot as a golly-gee-whiz sort of guy. Corpulent Tim Lowery hams his way through the role of a grunting, dim witted assistant named Orgie.

Hard to believe such a picture would have ever gotten made using tax shelter benefits, but that was the case here. The result was a pretty disastrous screening made for some industry bigwigs, who had no idea this was a porn film!

Six out of 10.
