VZ1 List #11 - Invisibility


Invisibility is actually a pretty exceptional power when you think about it.  It was the power imbued by the ring - but even innocent Hobbits could be corrupted by it. So, it has great potential for abuse and also psychological impact.  It also comes with ethical dilemmas (i.e. invading others' privacy or engage in malicious activities without consequences). And it's these nefarious actions that are the focus of exploitation cinema - sometimes as mundane as spying on a gym shower but other times it is a means for violence and sexual assault.  We'll rank the top sexploitation films with an invisibility component - rating not just on the entertainment value of the film, but also how well the invisibility power is utilized.  

Unnatural Act (1984)


A musician is killed in an auto accident and returns as a ghost, invisible to everyone except his girlfriend.  A similar story as School Spirit (1985).

Flying Skirts (1984)


(Original Title: L'été les petites culottes s'envolent) This may be one of the trickiest movies to explain - as everybody is screwing everybody, with love triangles (really love dodecahedrons), adultery and bed swapping run amuck. 

Fast Youth (1975)


(Original Title: Hızlı Gençlik aka Çilgin Gençlik) A blue collar schlub inherits what he thinks is a fortune - but turns out to just be a set of chairs.  When he finds that the fortune is actually within the chairs, he and his girlfriend must track down and check each chair that they foolishly sold.

This batshit insane Australian film is far too manic and scattered to provide a coherent synopsis; so we'll just skip through to get a taste of this wacked-out epic. 

Pretty Peaches 3: The Quest (1989)


Alex De Renzy brings us the third installment of the Pretty Peaches saga. I still love the fact that there is a through-line from Voltaire (Candida) to Terry Southern's novel to this amazing porno sequel.  In this episode, Peaches goes on a spiritual journey and finds that the purveyors of enlightenment aren't what they're cracked up to be.

A girl in a mental hospital suffers from nightmarish hallucinations.  She escapes and joins a couple for some swingin' sex at the house - but the horrific apparitions continue.

VZ1 List #10 - 1990s Sci-Fi


The 1960s saw a good number of B-movie sci-fi, but only a handful of the sexploitation variety (ex. Nude on the Moon) - I mean mainstream sci-fi was difficult enough to pull off, let alone a nudie cutie.  Then, sci-fi waned during the seventies in favor of more gritty realism and satansploitation.... only to be gobsmacked by Star Wars in '77.  From the late seventies throughout the eighties, it was an embarrassment of riches for both mainstream sci-fi and (I'd argue especially) straight to VHS cheapo sci-fi.  This list concerns sexploitation sci-fi in the nineties, that period after the the Star Wars mania had petered out, but nonetheless kept the train running.  

Sex Trek 2: The Search for Sperm (1991)


The sequel to the 1990 film.  In this episode, the crew of the Starship Plunderer searches for Mr. Sperm's missing genitals which have been taken by an all-female planet.

Sex Trek (1990)


Originally titled Sex Trek: The Next Penetration, but that proved to be a bad decision as it obviously gave the impression it was a spoof of TNG when in fact it is an OG parody.  The crew lands on the planet Youranus intent on exploiting its non-union workforce, but end up hostages of the female humanoids.

Cockateer 2 (1992)


Picking up where the original Cockateer (1991) left off - the superhero has been captured by the diabolical Screwball and replaced with an evil twin.

Cockateer (1991)


In the spirit of the 1960s Batman TV show, The Cockateer battles two diabolical adversaries who threaten to take over Horndog City.

The Girls from Atlantis (1970)


(Original Title: Männer sind zum Lieben da) A group of alien females emerge from a Bavarian lake on a mission to shrink male humans to collect and bring back to their homeworld.  They shrink them by having sex.  If this sounds campy, think again.  This is a beautifully shot, art house film.

Sex Rays (1990)


An emissary from another planet visits earth to learn about sex.

Bimbo Cheerleaders From Outer Space (1988)


Cheerleaders travel across space on a mission to "bring friendship and joy to alien planets".

The story surrounds a whorehouse in Hawaii at the end of WWII.  

Baby Face 2 (1986)


The sequel to Baby Face (1977) which doesn't continue from that story, but definitely has connections - mainly evident in the ending.  A group of girls gather for a bachelorette party - and their male stripper summons the goddess Aphrodite, causing them all to become maniacally horny.

Robofox II: The Collector (1988)


Sequel to the 1987 film; Robofox gets jilted by the doctor and winds up hanging with underground criminals.
