Fair fare for a soft porn production
Crime and lust -- what an original combination for a plot! This movie delivers both, but not necessarily well. We have lots of skin, multiple erotic engagements, and a plausible plot, though not very original.
Television advice columnist Melody Thomas starts receiving anonymous photos and other clues, apparently from a serial murderer of pretty young women. She investigates, initially at career peril, and begins cooperating with police detective Brad Jameson. Their relationship blossoms after former beau Ron (Edward Johnson) follows his career out of town. Tensions rise as the body count increases, and a few broad hints point us poor naive viewers to the prime suspect well before the protagonists identify the evil-doer.
The acting is mixed. Wendy Rice is fairly effective, and quite pleasing to mine eye, as are several other lusty actresses. Chris Gustafson is moderately credible. Some of the other actors were less convincing, but I have seen a lot worse, so I would not complain too much for a soft porn production.
Summary (with format acknowledgment to Smooth B)
Women: B. These were not the best ever, but they were quite visually appealing. Ms. Rice may not have been the most erotically appealing of the group, but her acting was good and she is still quite pleasing to watch. Daisey Dukes, a petite brunette beauty, was impressive in a second-tier part, well done in both her conversational scene and in her erotic presentation. Star E. Knight was also convincing, lusty, and visually appealing.
Sex: B-. Lots o' lovin', straight-on, oral, and some back-door, in eight or more sex scenes
Story: C. Worn story, but a decent vehicle to support the erotic scenes
Overall: B-. OK, moderately satisfying experience, but far from a classic.
