Editorial Reviews

Enter the Bizarre World of the Psycho-Sexual! Eager for a career in modeling, naive-and-not-very-bright Karen Anderson signs with a creepy brother and sister team whose Rent-a-Girl agency actually procures women for a rich and kinky clientele. Starting with posing for pictures in the nude, Karen soon graduates to being The Guest of Honor at a Special Party thrown by wealthy Harriet Grant, "a disgusting lady who enjoys whipping little girls 18 to 22." Full of sick eccentrics, the party's highlight comes when two women beat the bejesus out of Harriet before Karen is blindfolded and branded on the leg with a red hot poker!

Plus: A "Sex Killer" prowls the streets of Manhattan killing hookers: "This guy is a nut! He'll grab any woman he thinks is a whore!" But when the lesbian lover of working girl Ginny Smith is strangled by the Aroused maniac, Ginny turns vigilante and, together with some of her prostitute pals, invades the creepy mannequin-filled apartment of their number-one suspect whom they plan on turning into "a boy soprano."

Also: LSD causes Sebastian Gregory to tell a hooker all about how he and a bad blonde named Barbara murdered a teenage hitchhiker before he in turn hacked up Barb. The hooker thinks the acid is making him hallucinate -- until she finds blood in his bathroom and a trunk full of bones. So live dangerously and let these three strange Nudie-Noirs bring out the Freak in you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Murder, Prostitution and Black Lace Panties February 28, 2004
This Something Weird Video triple feature has the binding themes of prostitution, murder and black lace underwear. It's a winning exploitation combo, though not all the movies on this DVD are winners. The first movie, "Rent-A-Girl," made in 1965, is the least interesting. The flimsy story is told in flashbacks as the heroine recounts how she became witness to the murder of a wealthy client after getting involved with a brother-and-sister-run "modeling agency." Along the way there's a little bit of whipping, a little bit of lesbianism, an extended body-painting sequence, and branding. Though it has higher production values than the Olga movies or the twisted features of Michael and Roberta Findlay (the closest comparisons for this movie), "Rent-A-Girl" lacks an intriguing screen presence like Audrey Campbell or the enjoyably sick outrageousness of the Findlay films. It's a roughie with a limp whip.
Far superior is the 1966 movie "Aroused," which plays like a real movie--that is to say it has something of a plot, some full-fledged (if cliché) characters, decent acting, stylish direction (by Anton Holden) and even some moments of real suspense. This briskly-paced, trashy thriller revolves around the hunt for a "sex killer," with hardened hooker Ginny (Janine Lenon) out for blood and tortured cop (Steve Hollister) out for an arrest. It's still exploitation, so there's lots of sex, nudity and gore, but it's all done a lot more imaginatively than other movies of this type. This is the best of the three.
The title of the last movie, "Help Wanted Female," has little to do with the actual film, but that only makes sense in this nonsensical movie from 1968.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good SWV offering October 8, 2004
By WLR
This SWV DVD includes three b&w titles from the 60s. Rent a Girl was pretty good but I felt that it was too short. A young woman sits in the seventy something year old New York DA's office and recounts the sad tale of how she arrived in NYC with her hopes and dreams and came to grief. She found an apartment and a good, well-to-do boyfriend, but no job. When her boyfriend gets cold feet about their relationship she decides to go and investigate the strange, orgy-like sounds that come from the apartment upstairs. The occupants are a young brother and sister who run a phony modeling racket that is really a front for a call girl operation specializing in satisfying the perverse appetites of rich but decadent people. Of course they offer her a job and she is soon on her way to depravity. There follows a series of episodes involving the girls and their clients. Darlene Bennett fans will be pleased to know that she appears in this movie (not as the lead character) in a couple of kinky scenes as she does in many other SWV titles. In one scene she is dressed in a summer dress and teeters on high heels in a basement with her hands tied above her head with a rope from the rafters while an old creep squirts her with water from a hose. In another she plays a strip poker version of billiards with some other party girls. There are party scenes where many other familiar faces from SWV titles are also present, like Gigi Darlene. I liked it. The second movie Aroused was the weakest of the three. Some sicko stalks and murders a young prostitute in her NYC apartment. The straight-laced detective working on the case develops sympathy for her live-in girlfriend, an older, more mature prostitute, even though it soon becomes clear that the two women were a lesbian couple.

3.0 out of 5 stars If nothing else, August 16, 2004
it's strange enough to hold your interest to wonder how much worse it can get. These are sort of like soft-core Bettie Page stuff, although there is real-life, honest to gawd nudity ... although when they turn around (yes, the rear view), some of these women have no business undressing! The plot in them is pretty much non-existent (except Aroused; that tries harder); more or less of an excuse to show nudity. And, every guy apparently makes love without ever taking off his pants. Cheap thrills, 60s style. The acting in the final whipping scene in Rent is to die for. As a matter of fact... and that makes no sense either, given why it happened. You'll understand when you see it.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you see trash, pick it up... July 17, 2005
The acting is bad which is what makes this offering soooo good!Help Wanted Female is the best of the lot, with a Loretta Swit look alike beingsmarmy and seductive. The short film as a bonus features Betty Paige slapping another woman's butt for about 3 minutes. No story, just a pounding.
