Eva Henger has Horns
Joe D'Amato and porn star Eva Henger teamed up for over four hours of hellfire in a 3-part video called Hell's Angel. Its credits are garbled (part 3 was issued with no screen credits at all), but I'll be reviewing them in their U.S. DVD incarnations.
This part 2 was re-christened THE SEVEN SEXY SINS (other entries circulate as DEMONS OF LUST and THE DEVIL'S LAIR). Wraparound footage consists of Eva in Hell with two shapely gal pals, all sporting horns and lookalike makeup job, with cheapo dry ice serving as SPFX. All that's missing are costumes from Ricky's.
This doesn't sound promising, but what makes it work is the featuring of Eva in many of the porn vignettes illustrating specific sinning, and also the surprising continuity between the vignettes.
The English-dubbed patter Eva speaks is repeated, not only from video to video, but even within the same disk. She rambles on about 3 types of sins, ordinary lust, more serious stuff (greed, sloth, jealousy), and then the peak sins, which she never gets around to demonstrating. Whoa!
This edition is mainly about greed, opening with Mike Foster as a rich guy counting out his gold pieces. Anita Blond asks him for just one gold piece and he reluctantly agrees, but gets a full-scale sex treatment for the price. Punchline is that he mightily regrets parting with even one of his innumerable coins.
In part two Anita has sex outdoors with a studly workman in overalls. Twist is that she gives him the coin for the service, and surprisingly he pops it into a strongbox, already filled with gold coins of his own.
Third vignette is about seduction, as Eva visits her husband, who happens to be greedy Mike from the initial segment. He's complaining about all sorts of expenses, paying his staff, etc., so after she gives him quite a sexual workout, ending with a copious money shot, he only hands her one coin for her allowance. "Don't I deserve any more?" she whines, but that's it, so Eva vows not to have sex with hubby again.
Symmetry rears its head in part four, as Eva goes to the overall-ed workman, bangs him like crazy including anal sex, and gives him her coin, commenting "For me, cock is the only truly great sin".
Next up she's sitting in a restaurant, clapping to get the waiter's attention. She eats dessert and masturbates -hey, it's time for the sin of gluttony. She seduces the young waiter, and it's a literally sticky situation mixing sex and food. She demands (ambiguously) "a much bigger one next time".
Insatiable desire is the theme of the finale, as an older waiter brings Eva "a bigger one" -no, not what we expected but rather a 5-layer cake. She humps the lucky old guy, and four people join in (including the young waiter) for an orgy. Video climaxes literally with double penetration action.
I used to love those many European sexy movies of the '50s and '60s with a similar segment structure: BOCCACCIO '70, LOVE AND THE FRENCHWOMAN, BAMBOLE, LET'S TALK ABOUT WOMEN, and later on SEX WITH A SMILE. This XXX update isn't too bad.
