A sex-crazed nympho helps speed along her father’s death so she can use the inheritance to help out her depraved boyfriend.
Director Robert Vincent O’Neill, working from a blithely sordid and shameless script by Peter Carpenter, Tony Crechales and Toby Sacher, cheerfully wallows in the sewer and really delivers the sensationally slimy goods: we’ve got plentiful tasty female nudity (De Aragon in particular looks positively stunning sans clothes), sizzling soft-core sex, nasty plot twists, a little drug use, mean, greedy, back-stabbing amoral characters, occasional outbursts of wild gruesome violence, and a pleasingly grim bummer ending.
Moreover, the cast have a completely field day with their juicy roles: De Aragon makes for a marvelously ferocious and intimidating femme fatale, co-writer Carpenter holds his own as hunky family doctor Craig Cooper, plus there are neat supporting turns by Reagan Wilson as Cooper’s nice, loyal girlfriend Cheryl, Leslie Simms as doting nurse Turner, Arell Blanton as smugly evil blackmailer Larry, and Alex Rocco as a by-the-book lawyer. The garish cinematography by Robert Maxwell and Gary Graver further enhances the pervasive seaminess. Don Vincent’s wailing, overwrought, groovy-stomping psychedelic rock score hits the funky bull’s eye, too. A total trashy treat.
