7/10 … This is beautiful early sleaze during the Golden age of Porn with 0% good actors (apart from Marilyn, but she doesn’t say a word through the entire movie). It all feels extremely cheap at first, with worthless actors and the first scenes before we get to the club. But then we enter the stage part and here we get the erotica. The scene scene with the black guy is pretty erotic, with more or less no close up on the genitels but more focusing on their faces and their panthing. Really hot. The third stage scene is some kind of group sex that’s pretty ok, with some interesting “artistic” finish shoots. The last sex scene is really, really nice with focus on Marilyn and again not that many “close up” shots but more a focus on body expressions and their pleasure. Really sexy!
7/10 … I love David Cronenberg, he has a cold touch to his movies without any tendencies to force comedy elements into them that I love. To me, he’s extremely underrated and should be mentioned in the same breath as John Carpenter, Tobe Hoper and Wes Craven, but never is. Could it be because it lack that comedy element that seems to attract a lot? Is it that he doesn’t care about happy endings or is it just as simple that he’s not American, but Canadian?
I like this movie a lot, although parts are kind of the same thing happening over and over again. Get bitten, bits the next person, but halfway through we get some more variation. I love Marilyn Chambers, I think she’s great in this role and ofcourse very pretty. I love that Mr. Cronenberg had the balls to hire her after she had made porno movies before this, a chance Hollywood didn’t get her.
