Editorial Reviews

In this sexually-charged thriller, Jacqueline (Shannon Tweed) is a beautiful but unscrupulous woman who supports herself by taking advantage of older men with plenty of money. Not long after Jacqueline sinks her hooks into wealthy Benjamin Alcott, the elderly gentleman turns up dead, and his daughter Candice (Danielle Ciardi) and her lover Steve (Jim Richer) discover that Jacqueline has run off with a quarter-million dollars that was supposed to be deposited into the accounts of Allcot's charitable trust. Candice and Steve are understandably angry about this development, and they formulate a scheme to recover the money and put Jacqueline out of business.

To all potential buyers looking for a steamy softcore movie with lingerie clad ladies, disguised by a better than average plot and acting, please save your money and look elsewhere. This movie does not deliver on any of the above and Shannon Tweed is left searching for way out of this aimless, plotless, and primarily sexless movie. Even the NC-17 version will let you down. Simply put, it does not deliver in those areas people want when they purchase a movie like this.

Normally, I disliked Shannon Tweed because they are cheap and the plot is normally just about sex. My perspective of her was turned around when I watched Naked Lies and this one. This one relied more on suspense and mystery then sex and nudity.
She stars as a murderous and deceitful woman who marries a wealthy man to get his money. His stepdaughter has suspicions about her. After he dies of a fatal heart attack, she finds out what she is really up to. That is where the suspense and murder come in. Yes, this movie may contain some strong sexuality, but it was not as sexually charged as some of her other ridiculous films.
Once again, this is one of her best. I recommend this to anyone who would like to see a good Shannon Tweed suspense film.

Tweed gives a very sexy performance, despite not being naked very often in the film. Tweed plays a nasty scam artist that preys on wealthy men. The evilness of Tweed is very sexy, as Tweed plays the sexiest villians in the B movie business. The whole movie rides Tweed, and she successfully carries it.

I only got this movie because Shannon Tweed is by far the most sexiest and most seductive actress of all time. She looks great in black suspenders and we see her perform some of the most hot and wild sex scenes ever. Forget the storyline, get this movie for the sex!!!Its all about the Sex!!!and this delivers plenty of wild sex!!!

Shannon Tweed, attractive and talented as always, plays a cold-hearted femme fatale in a fairly good film with plenty of plot twists. The supporting cast are also quite interesting and do a first rate job. Only quibble, several nasty violent scenes which could have been avoided.

Basically, the quality of this DVD is not good and Shannon Tween didn't perform very well in this film. Although other girls show the nudity and sex scene, it does not help too much for this poor movie.

This is my second review of a Shannon Tweed movie. In my first review I said - No Contest - was her best movie, I still believe that,but power play wasn't that bad even through it is just another version of the black widow genre. I think Shannon to be equally seductive as Theresa Russell, just not as talented,this movie parallels that one, but the supporting characters in this film are what make this movie interesting. Danielle Ciardi (Candice)the daughter of one of Shannons victims and her boyfriend Steve. Who are out to turn the tables on Shannon are the characters that give this film life and sex appeal. I wish there were more shannon moments. But the few glimpse's of her were sufficiently sexy!. A entertaining and sometimes funny movie.I recommend this movie as a must for your Shannon Tweed collection.
