Two professional assassins take over the home of two women (who happen to be lesbians) and their “houseguest” in order to assassinate a visiting foreign dignitary.

International intrigue, assassination attempts, and scantily-clad hostages abound in A Taste of Flesh, yet another berserk b&w nudie shot entirely in director DORIS WISHMAN’s Queens apartment!

Predatory lesbo Bobi (LAYLA PETERS), who shares an apartment with uninhibited exhibitionist Carol (everybody’s favorite love doll, DARLENE BENNETT), invites Hannah, a beautiful gal in a mangy fright wig she met in Europe, to stay with her while she’s in town. (Hannah is played by director Joe Sarno’s wife, Peggy, under the pseudonym CLEO NOVA, a name she used in many of her husband’s films.) But while Bobi is taking a leisurely shower, two shady “plumbers” appear and ask to check the pipes. Carol opens the door (you’d think these big city girls would know better) and Nick (MICHAEL LAWRENCE, the doll-obsessed pervert from Indecent Desires) and Frankie (BUCK STARR, the arrogant thick-lipped loser from Too Much Too Often) bust in.

And surprise, surprise, they’re actually Hired Assassins who have been following Hannah to find out when her boss, His Excellency the Prime Minister, will be arriving at a nearby hotel — which just happens to be right across the street. As luck (and Doris’ wacky plotting) would have it, Bobi’s apartment is the perfect location for a stakeout and, after persuasively pistol-whipping Hannah into divulging some pertinent details, the bumbling bozos hold the gals hostage until dawn when their intended victim is scheduled to show up.

It is, of course, the perfect setting for a night of Wishman wildness. With a painfully long evening ahead of them, Carol goes into the kitchen to make some coffee only to be groped by Frankie who asks her to flee to South America with him. “Oh, that sounds exciting!” she exclaims before the two of them end up thrashing around on the floor getting rug burns. Meanwhile, Nick, Bobi, and Hannah try to sleep and Bobi has an erotic dream about Hannah which eventually turns into a scary nightmare featuring — are you ready? — pug-ugly Nick in Hannah’s fright wig! (Doris, you’re a genius!)

After more sensual and sadistic sex games, the guys get ready to make the hit. Nick sees the intended target and shoots — but, in famous Wishman style, there’s a surprise in store for them all…

With her piercing eyes and delicate features, Miss “Nova” radiates a stunning and classy presence in A Taste of Flesh. Probably one of the more claustrophobic of Wishman’s nudies (since practically everything happens in that damn apartment), it’s nevertheless highly recommended to those who like their skinflicks surrounded by a vaguely oriental decor.
