Retromedia always is hit and miss...and this one is a hit. Certainly one of the best by Retromedia and possibly THE best.
I'm no Beverly Lynne fan, but she's cuter here than I've ever seen her, both in how she looks and how she acts. The rest of the cast of female actresses is amazing, as Fred Olen Raye deviated from the usual lineup and went with Brandin Rackley (absolutely, positively scorchingly hot) and Jayden Cole (incredible breasts), along with a fourth-bill blonde newcomer who is just plain smoking. And all of the newbies can act pretty well, too. Awesome!
The plot even is humorous and fairly entertaining in its own right. It's clear which releases that Ray gives more care to and which are throwaways; this one was handled with some tenderness while some others (like the hugely disappointing Voodoo Dollz) were treated like red-haired stepchildren.
Most impressive (besides the production values which I found to be as high as anything that Ray ever has done) are the fantastic sex scenes. There are Retromedia releases with better plots than this one but I've never seen Retromedia top this one in terms of sexiness. The men and women genuinely seem turned on and the sex looks really very realistic. The only qualm that I have--and I say this a lot about these movies--is that there is no real graphic nudity here other than some very, very fleeting accidental glances.
