Six Swedish Girls in a Boarding School (1979)


First of the four-part series that ended with Six Swedes in the Alps (1983).  Six nymphomaniac Swedish girls cause trouble at a boarding school.

Six Swedes in the Alps (1983)


(Original Title: Sechs Schwedinnen auf der Alm) The fourth and last part of the "Sechs Schwedinnen" series, and also Erwin C. Dietrich´s final work in the erotic genre.

Lonely Wives (1972)


(Original Title: Zum zweiten Frühstück heiße Liebe) A Schulmädchen-Report film (i.e. German "sex report" faux documentary) about lonely wives and their sexual misadventures.

Nurses Report (1972)


One of the millions of Schulmädchen-Report films; this one focuses on nurses.  Featuring Ingrid Steeger, Ulrike Butz and other familiar faces from German sexploitation.

The Quack and His Fast Daughters (1980)

(Original Title: Der Kurpfuscher und seine fixen Töchter) A snake oil salesman poses as a real doctor in a small village.  His medical practice booms when three blonde girls become his nurses. One of an endless series of Bavarian sex comedies starring Peter Steiner.

Housewives Report International (1973)


We've covered the original Hausfrauen-Report (1971) and its immediate sequel. This is technically part five in the unending series. You thought there were a lot of Schulmädchen-Report films; but it was far outnumbered by its spin-offs, which I don't think we'll ever run out of.

Housewives Report 2 (1971)


Follow up to the original Hausfrauen-Report (1971); a Schulmädchen-Report film focusing on the sexual escapades of housewives.

Housewives Report (1971)


(Original Title: Hausfrauen-Report) Another Schulmädchen-Report film; this one notable for featuring Sybil Danning. 

Sin in the Suburbs (1964)


A Joe Sarno film about a suburban neighborhood which spirals towards despair and deviant sexual activity in response to their loveless mid-century suburban lifestyle.

50,000 B.C. (Before Clothing) (1963)


"Filmed in exciting nudacolor for nonblushing adults only." A doofus is sent back to prehistoric times where he finds a bunch of nude cavegirls.

Riverboat Mama (1969)


Should be paired with Indian Raid, Indian Made (1969) made by the same crew and featuring the same cast, including "kissing bandit" Morganna.

Countess Dracula's Orgy of Blood (2004)


A typical low-budget Dracula flick, notable that it features Paul Naschy, albeit in a very small role.

The Magic Garter (1980)


(Original Title: El liguero mágico) A Spanish horror comedy by the two destape kings, Andrés Pajares, and Antonio Ozores.  

Other Men's Wives (1996)


A children's book author is a sex addict, which gets him into all kinds of trouble. 

Virtual Girl 2: Virtual Vegas (2001)


Follow up to Virtual Girl (1998) starring Susan Featherly as a computer programming genius who brings her new virtual sex device to Vegas

The Bad Judge and Other Tales (2002)

Sadly, once you venture down this weird rabbit hole, it's hard to stop.  Believe me or not, it doesn't matter, but I find the idea of tying ladies up pretty stupid.  However, these films are so odd, I can't take my eyes off them.  Plus, they're chock full of attractive women in short skirts, so they're certainly not without some entertainment value. 

The Persistent Pantyhose Perpetration (2002)


Another fetish video that falls in the sexploitation domain, with a flimsy plot, but sturdy knots.

Pleasure Spots (1972)


A phony travelogue documentary where we go to various tourist spots and meet various ladies.  Featuring some sexploitation regulars such as Sandy Carey, Lynn Harris, Jane Tsentas and Tracy Handfuss all giving x-rated performances.

All the Sins of Sodom (1968)


A Joe Sarno flick about a photographer who falls under the spell of a weird homeless girl.  

Femalien (1996)


Following the same basic story as The Girl from Starship Venus (1975), a hot alien comes to earth and learns about sex.

The Dallas Connection (1994)


In this Andy Sidaris film, scientists at a Dallas convention are being taken out by the "bad guys", led by Julie Strain as Black Widow. [We've covered all of Sidaris' Triple B flicks on VZ1 - see the list at the bottom of this review.]

Take It Out in Trade (1970)


An Edward D. Wood Jr. film that was thought lost until fairly recently.  While pretty lame overall, it does have flashes of Ed Wood Jr. eccentricities that may make it worth a look.

Scorpion Inc. (1999)


A nuclear power plant is emitting unsafe levels of radiation.  When the plant owner can't bribe the inspector, they raid her house to confiscate the incriminating documents.

The Ladytrap (2002)


Yep, it's another twenty year old fetish flick; this one features late-night cable sexploitation regular,Shannan Leigh and seems to have a somewhat respectable budget with a fairly well thought-out story. 

Temporary Indisposed (1992)


Yep, we're diving in to another fetish flick - this one from about thirty years ago. The story is about the most understanding roommate in the world, who keeps getting tied up by her insane roommate.  Evidently, their old 486 computer hypnotizes her to do bad things.  It's weird.  I also thought the title of this movie was a mistake ("temporarily indisposed" would be the correct phrase); however, the main character is a temp worker, so I guess it actually makes sense.

The Mad Librarian and Other Tales (2002)


Vintage fetish videos are a bit of a rabbit hole to explore; you'll often find some recognizable names from sexploitation popping up here and there.  We even found Linnea Quigley and Michelle Bauer in one [Kidnapped Girl Agency (1985)], Kira Reed in another [Girl Camp 2003: Chained Vengeance (2003)] and Jasae in another [Fetish Finishing School (1995)].  In this particular video we find Shannan Leigh.  Another point of interest - this anthology is done with a sense of humor, with each story having a punch line.  I suppose I haven't seen enough of these to realize that was a thing - and refreshing to know that not all of these videos are mean spirited.

Andromina: The Pleasure Planet (1999)


Andromina used to be the pleasure planet; now, it's boring and empty.  Three guys travel to Eros, a planet inhabited by men-hating hotties, who they recruit to come to Andromina to spark things back up.

Ancient Desires (2000)


A tomb raider reawakens an ancient female mummy who can only stay alive and grow in power by having sex

Hot Club California (1999)


Three sisters have a pile of illegal money fall into their laps.  They move from Detroit to California to start a new life, but their old life back in the seedy clubs of Michigan still follows them. From, John Quinn, the director who gave us Fast Lane to Vegas (2000) and The Key to Sex (1999).

Mob Job (1973)


A grade-z adult film about a songwriter pursued by the mob.  Notable only for an appearance by Kathy Hilton.  If the songs in this movie were not just illegally lifted, this film would easily have the greatest soundtrack in history.  Featuring Stevie Wonder, Tower of Power, Pink Floyd, Curtis Mayfield and Joe Walsh.

Diary of a Sinner (1974)


Two losers tired of living decide to make a suicide pact; but, before their death, they plan to live as sinfully as possible for one week.

The Caper (1970)


An obscure Kathy Hilton flick where she plays a photographer who has sex with her subjects... and anyone else who strolls along.

Doctor Studley (1969)


A new doctor is hired - and given his name, "Dr. Studley" is should come as no surprise that he woos all the women in the office.  This is an ultra cheapo with no credits; so, unfortunately, no idea who any of the actors are in this film.

Solitaire (1996)


Let's do one more Kehli O'Byrne film; for O'Byrne completists only, as this is total and complete garbage.

The Last Embrace (1997)


A socially awkward accountant finds his true love in a virtual reality program.  The girl on the other end of the modem is also having her own issues, which will complicate them ever getting connected in the real world.

Watch Me (1995)


Kehli O'Byrne started out on family friendly TV with a regular role on 21 Jump Street and other, less notable gigs. Then, in the mid to late nineties she tried her luck in erotic films, primarily late-night cable fare, before finally moving back to family friendly TV, including a bunch of Hallmark Christmas work. This film is an unoriginal, forgettable Skinamax flick, but Kehli O'Byrne provides a surprising amount of full frontal nudity; so, thought it was worth a closer look.

Delirium (1979)


The lurid VHS cover art has always made me curious about this "video nasty".  Turns out, it's not nearly as sleazy and interesting as the cover suggests.  The story involves a group of Vietnam vets who carry out vigilante justice.  When one of their soldiers goes rogue and starts killing innocent women, their group finds themselves pursued by the police.

Animal Attraction III (2001)


Not to be confused with Animal Instincts III (1996) - all these new age erotica films start to sound the same.  This one is mostly just sex scenes tied together by an incomprehensibly boring and convoluted plot.

Dec 23, 2020

Passion & Romance: Double or Nothing (1997)


Written by The Great One - no, not Wayne Gretsky.  I mean Rolfe Kanefsky.  This is sort-of a throwaway flick, primarily intended for late-night cable back in the glory days of Skinamix.  

The Coming of Sin (1978)


(Original Title: La visita del vicio) Another José Ramón Larraz film; this one about a gypsy girl who's haunted by weird visions of a guy on horseback.  As her visions become reality, tragedy looms.

Diary of Lust (2000)


A sex researcher is tasked with vetting a group of bidders on a castle with an erotic past. Featuring Mia Zottoli and Susan Featherly.

Virtual Sex (1998)


Originally released on late-night cable as Sex Files: Digital Sex (1998), this ends up being not much more than a pastiche of clips from other, much better movies.

Bikini Spring Break (2012)


Four female band nerds travel to Miami for a competition, but their bus dies along the way.  So, they must find a way to get to their destination amid spring break debauchery. 

The Telling (2009)


A sorority ritual involves telling scary stories, leading to an anthology of horror tales told by the pledges.

Bikini Model Academy (2015)


Two stoners decide to start a bikini model academy, but are thwarted by a rich asshole.  A competition for all the stakes is hosted by Morgan Fairchild.

Sex Pot (2009)


A raunchier and stupider version of Superbad, with gobs of nudity and a sleazy offensive energy that should be requisite for any sex comedy. 

Celebrity Sex Tape (2012)


A sex comedy about a group of nerds who raise money by getting washed-up actresses to have sex for their website. 

Barely Legal (2011)


Three friends decide to lose their virginity at a party in celebration of their eighteenth birthday.  Standard teen sex comedy mishaps ensue.

Nightmare (1981)


One of the most chilling and disturbing serial killer movies out there. A year after Maniac (1980), this film also wallows in the streets of NYC at its grimiest, includes some spectacular gore, and genuinely frightening moments.

Sledgehammer (1983)


From David A. Prior, the man who gave us Killer Workout (1987), a national treasure.  It's your typical slasher story where a sexually traumatized kid grows up to kill youthful partiers with a signature weapon.
