The Sex Deviates is one of three cheapo storefront features contained in this Triple Feature Grindhouse Collection, but it just happens to be a brand new one (the other two The Apartment and The Girl Next Door being produced some time in the murky beginnings of the 1970s). A storefront feature was simply a no-budget 16mm exploitation film that played in a ground level commercial space that had been cheaply converted into a cinema by throwing up a screen, a makeshift projection booth, and a bunch of folding chairs. Only now are these soiled gems available for viewing in the comfort of your own home.
The Sex Deviates (2008) begins with anonymous shots of New York City, leading to the common ultra low budget establishing shot of the exterior of an apartment building, zooming in suggestively on one window. We soon find out there is a host for this impending filthy adventure. Elliot Forbes (Adam Trash), researcher in the field of medical science, is every bit the bespectacled, constrained commentator you have seen before. Elliot introduces the first segment of this hour-long opus, which consists of three erotic vignettes starring Biafra Bayne and Tracie Hayes.
The Apartment (1971) presents a young, chain-smoking couple posing as brother and sister. The sister sports a seriously supreme 1970s bod while her brother boasts a fine pair of muttonchops. The Apartment also has another little extra a guitar-strumming, folk-singing lesbian who has a bona fide orgasm at the hands of her butch lover.
In The Girl Next Door (1971) a traveling vibrator salesman has to make do with demonstrating the product on a college girl instead of her absentee mother.
There you go. Three grungy grindhouse movies that fully supply the filthy feeling we all crave every now and then. Turn down the lights and you might find yourself drifting back to a 42nd Street state of mind. If you dare...
