Journey into the mind of the undead as a talking mummy guides us on a grand tour of the timeless battle of the sexes between man and woman. An erotic horror cult classic from executive producer Richard Gordon (FIEND WITHOUT A FACE, ISLAND OF TERROR), SECRETS OF SEX is an offbeat anthology film like no other. A sexy mix of sex, horror and humor filmed in varied styles, this is one of the strangest films you are ever likely to see. This version of SECRETS OF SEX was previously released under the title BIZARRE and contains deleted footage never before seen in the U.S. Bonus Features: Trailer, Audio Commentary, Interview and Shorts.
(AKA 'Bizarre' 1969) This film opens with 3 naked individuals, a blonde woman with an incredible figure and matching tan flanked by 2 men, surrounded in a haystack and looking very serious (?), and then a quote from Milton's 'Paradise Lost' is superimposed over the nudity, presumably to inform us that we're not just looking at raincoat sexploitation but artful, thoughtful cinematic sleaze delivered by the British and their uptight censors. Then we're whisked away to a two-thousand year-old past, where an imposing judge and his very 60's looking wife are staring at a locked trunk, whose contents are unknown at least to us and one of them. The somber judge decides to have his servants bury the trunk the next day and throws away the key, never having peered inside. As it turns out, the trunk contained a man, the lover of the judge's wife, and now we're hurled back to the present 1969 swinging London scene and the trunked lover is now both a mummy and our host in a series of bizarre vignettes centering on sexual sagas and conflicts between men and women. 'Still with me?
So begins a procession of tales narrated by our tightly-wrapped MC involving the battle of the sexes that has raged since the Garden of Eden, and the serpent that inhabits every paradise is evidenced in all of the 60's shagadelic scenarios. Part cautionary tale, mostly 'Love, American Style' with rampant nudity, add a dash of Hammer horror thanks to our mummified host, sprinkle with 'Monty Python' and a smidgeon of 'Benny Hill' and you'll know exactly what to expect of this appropriately-titled psychedelic gem laced with everything but LSD and a sense of logic. For fans of 60's films and women, it has more than its share of merits; for just about everyone else, it's a complete waste of time.Read more ›
"Secrets of Sex" and "Bizarre" are the same film. There are a number of scenes known as "skirmish battles of the sexes." It is heavily narrated by a mummy (Valentine Dyall) who sounds a bit like Christopher Lee. It appears he is in some sort of purgatory where he watches the skirmishes from time to time. These short tales lack entertainment value and dialogue of any value.
Some versions include 2 black and white extras by William S. Burroughs. They are difficult to watch, one includes the F-bomb and the a white guy saying the N-word. Horrors! Oh where is Melissa Harris-Perry!
This was the age before silicon and tuck. Women sag, show scars, and have cheesy butts. Fair transfer to DVD
Sex and nudity (male and female FF; Cathy Howard, Maria Frost, Nicole Austin, Sue Bond)
