This is a heavily edited (78 min.) softcore reconstruction of a hardcore pornographic movie named BEHIND THE FORBIDDEN DOOR that was released solely outside the United States, although not all members of the cast take part in the explicit action featured within the original work. Playing in both editions is flat, thereby matching an unimaginative screenplay that allows for frequent disrobing in order to heighten the picture's commercial possibilities. This rather lifeless film opens upon New Year's Eve, 1984/5, with two young couples frolicking upon a large lawn, property belonging to the parents of one of the girls, Marian ("Krystal"), and when her mother and father return to their home unexpectedly, the other three lovers flee, leaving Marian behind, but not before she and her swain Griff (Rafe Urquhart) exchange pledges of everlasting love. Action then hops forward ten years, where we see Griff as host of a successful pop therapy call-in radio program, and soon to be married to guileful and unfaithful Ingrid ("Rio"), who additionally is plotting along with an attorney friend to murder her fiancé in order to obtain his money, all while empty-headed Marian (empty of body as well since she has been dead for the mentioned ten year span, killed in a traffic collision, unknown to Griff) has returned as a phantom with an objective of cajoling her former beau into accepting a daunting task: tardily extirpating her virginity. This is all quite silly, of course, and not helped in the least within this lightly financed trifle by what is essentially non-existent direction that lacks even a negligible point of view, along with largely non-professional actors, of whom the females are for the greatest part veterans of the "adult film" industry. Here there are, for voyeurs, forms of simulated erotic activity for nearly all tastes, excepting good.
