Sin in the Suburbs was one of the early groundbreaking hits of the 1960s post-nudie-cutie 'grindhouse' era, single-handedly establishing the 'suburban swingers' subgenre. (Sarno actually based this movie rather closely on a true story he researched for a magazine article seven or eight years prior to shooting.) Future House of Shame ringleader Audrey "Olga" Campbell stars as Geraldine, a bored, unappreciated New Jersey housewife who's indulging in daytime "bottle parties" with other men because her workaholic husband is spending too much time at the office ("the plastics line isn't what it was ten years ago"). Sexually frustrated neighbor Lisa (fashion model Marla Ellis in a terrific performance), unsuccessfully begs her hubby to call in sick for a little afternoon delight, then seduces construction worker Roy to cool her desire. (His loaded opening line, "Can I hook onto your outside tap?", delivered as he fingers the tip of his coiled garden hose, is priceless.) Geraldine entices her daughter Kathy's hormonally charged boyfriend, who later assaults Kathy (future Olga co-star Alice Linville). She runs home in tears, only to discover mommy in the midst of a foursome! This trauma sends her reeling into the arms of predatory bisexual neighbor Yvette (buxom Dyanne "Ilsa" Thorne) who's already planning a sex-for-money cult involving the dallying neighbor ladies with her foppish, reptilian "brother" (wonderfully played by another future Olga alumnus, W. B. Parker, once described perfectly as a cross between Martin Kosleck and Harvey Fierstein). Soon, half the neighborhood is attending vaguely satanic, cloaked-and-masked, exhibitionistic mate-swapping rituals at a local hotel, presided over by Parker's hissing "ringmaster." Further complications ensue before the "shocking" finale.Read more ›

Both of these films are excellent. When you watch a "B", or an "exploitation" film, you're often viewing hoping for some camp value. You're hoping that the acting and directing will be so unprofessional, the story-line will be so outrageous, as to make the whole thing enjoyably bad. But every once in a while you go into one of these films with those kinds of expectations and wind up being surprised by finding the movie to be just genuinely good. This is the case with both of these early-to-mind '60's films by Joseph Sarno. The tone in both films is stong, the stories are compelling, the acting is good, there is fluid movement . . . they're just plain good movies. The fact that they are so openly about sex (the theme with both is wife-swapping) is the only thing that makes them exploitation films - otherwise, they're just fine dramas. Some bonuses are getting early glimpses of two exploitation film Queens - Audrey "Olga" Campbell and Dyann "Ilsa" Thorne. There's also great music in both, lots of cool, early '60's surf/rockabilly sounding stuff, which people often twist to.

Early Joe Sarno features.SIN IN THE SUBURBS from 1964 is paired with THE SWAP AND HOW THEY MAKE IT from 1966.Both are Black and white but brilliantly remastered.If not taken too seriously you can really enjoy both films.Practically no nudity but lots of suggestive situations.This is fascinating watching.Joe Sarno was in a class of his own.I thoroughly recommend this disc and the extras make it even better.Joe's wife Peggy helps in the audio commentaries.I enjoyed them more than the four stars I gave them.

Yeah, I like B-movies and drive-in flicks. I'm a sucker for bad cinema. Ed Wood movies, bikers, blaxploitation, beach bum flicks with lots of half-naked women, cheap low-budget horror, racy softcore with then unknown actors who went on to make a name for themselves. I love it all, often more than the big budget blockbusters because they could be unpredictable and didn't adhere to the tried-(and tired)-and true Disney "happily ever after" formulas. Watching Quentin Taratino's movies Kill Bill, Death Proof/Planet Terror) rekindled my interest in the genre. He was obviously heavily-influenced by them too. I grew up with a drive-in movie theater across from the apartment buildings me and my dad lived in. I could see the movies from my bedroom window. During the late 70s, the technology changed so you could tune in a frequency on your AM radio dial and get the sound if you were in the parking lot of the movie screen. My building was close enough that I could get a static-y signal and hear most of the dialogue. Actually going to the theater was an even bigger treat on a weekend night.

I'd' never heard of this movie until I began building my b-movie collection. The cover looked interesting and kinky. My wife was even intrigued, so I got a copy. Very interesting double-feature that seem to have a definite connection running through them. Both movies were directed by Joe Sarno who apparently was known for making these types of flicks and was considered a pioneer of sexploitation movies and later went on to make hardcore porn but "Sin in the Suburbs" is the movie he's best known for. This special edition of "Sin.." also features an audio commentary with Sarno and the guys behind SOMETHING WEIRD VIDEO who are the current distributors of these types of movies.
