Editorial Reviews

Drive-in goddess and ‘80s action queen Sybil Danning (of CHAINED HEAT and REFORM SCHOOL GIRLS fame) stars as a lusty college professor who seduces a naïve student (Eric Brown of PRIVATE LESSONS) as part of a sordid plot to frame him for the murder of her wealthy in-laws. But in a world of passion, deceit, cheesy rock ballads and awesome Danning nudity, not everything is what it seems to be. Andrew Prine (GRIZZLY, THE CENTERFOLD GIRLS), Paul Clemens (THE BEAST WITHIN) and Alvy Moore (GREEN ACRES) star in this deliciously sleazy mix of sex and violence that Mr. Skin hails as "one of the weirdest entries in the genre, combining hormone-farce antics with slasher movie elements and, of course, Sybil’s sumptuous sacks!"

Let's be honest, are we looking for good acting or good plot in this kind of movie. Sybil Danning is the only reason to consider. She shows her assets numerous times and what a sight and already worth the price of this DVD. And I have to say what a lucky kid Eric Brown is. He was in two different movies with 2 different Euro sexy stars (the other one is Private lesson with Sylvia Kristel)

The picture quality is good, clear and sharp. The Mono sound is ok, as you are not going to appreciate its dialogue anyway. The dvd has no extra features but again with Sybil Danning as the main attraction, who needs extra. Highy recommended.

During the 80's, New World Pictures was famous for generating a lot of low quality B movies. Of these I really liked, They're Playing with Fire, featuring Playboy Covergirl Sybil Danning, at her very best playing a manipulative Femme Fatale with a zest for deflowering her young students.
Sybil plays Diane, a College English Professor who schemes with her impotent husband played by Andrew Prine, into scaring his mother and aunt into a rest home and inheriting their estate. Sybil seduces her incredibly wooden co star played by Eric Brown, on a yacht and convinces him to do the deed. Sybil is so convincing in this scene she would be able to ....
Before Brown can scare the in-laws a masked psycho shows up and kills them. The movie then turn into a gory slasher flick. The rest of theflick attempts to make a murder mystery out of this. Believe me, the only spark in this Fire is Sybil Danning. She is one phenomenal woman.

Sybil Danning gives her greatest performance in this low budget erotic thriller/slasher film. In fact she is the only one who keeps this poorly scripted and silly thriller alive. The three nude scenes that Sybil appears in are the most INCREDIBLE in FILM HISTORY! Sybil dominates her co stars in the acting department also. She is the only one who seems convincing as the greedy femme fatale who uses her charms to manipulate her conspirators to obey her demands to get at her mother in laws inheritance. The film itself is below standard, but SYBIL DANNING IS INCREDIBLE!

Worth It For The Cover Alone. Sybil Danning Is Amazing In This. You Cant Take Your Eyes Off Her. She Could Stand There Naked for 2 Hours And I Would Pay Big Money For That. Get This Dvd If You Can Its Awesome!! Michael Jacobsen

I want to say Sybil Danning is delectable in this movie. She plays a english teacher at a college that uses her vivacious body to seduce a naive student (Jay)Eric Brown. To hatch a plan to scare her husbands(Andrew Prine)affluent parents into a nursing home so they can claim the inheritance of the estate. But instead of being scared they end up being dead,this is very deleterious for Jay since he was the last on the estate,but also suspicious for the scheming couple since they have all the motive. What follows is mystery and suspense to find who the real killer is. I must say I was surprised by this film! I was expecting some dump 80's sexploitation film but what I found was an above average thriller. Of course you have some T&A from Danning but all tastefully done,and solid acting as well. And if you are considering buying this dvd for Sybil Danning showing her wares you won't be disappointed!! for she appears very sexy in this film. I wish it was Sybil doing all those erotic thrillers than Shannon Tweed.!

This 1980s Movie of "They're Playing with Fire" DVD was about suspense and mystery and it was kind of ok but some scenes are graphic part in the movie but others parts of the movie is fine and ok but graphic parts are too scary. It is a murder mystery and suspense of the 1980s era.

I am not sure if this movie is rated PG-13 or Rated R. I would recommend anyone who is over age of 17 to watch this unrated film.

This has to be one of the stranger skin flicks i've ever encountered.
Made in the early 80s at the height of the Slasher movement in the States,this film combines a softcore plot about a sexy teacher(Sybil Danning)who is sleeping with her student(Eric Brown,who had similar "trouble" with Sylvia Kristel in Private Lessons(1981),while a maniac is killing the supporting cast in very gory fashion!

Most famous for being THE showcase for the ample nudity presented by the beautiful Miss Danning,who seems to undress every few minutes,the film is so bizarre as it tries to combine two genres that do not in any way fit together.
In no way a good movie,this still will please Skin fans and certainly the most curious of gorehounds,but it's no classic in the latter.

Still,Trash fans have to give this one a view.
