A model with dreams of the big time sinks into the depth of degradation in this rough-edged sexploitation opus. Rita (Doris Porro) is an attractive woman who has grown tired of working menial jobs and has decided to try her luck as a professional model. It doesn't take long for Rita to land lucrative assignments, but she also learns that the life of photographers and models is a decadent and dangerous one, and that drugs and casual sex are simply part of a typical assignment. A party after one photo shoot with fellow models Roberta (Ruth Colon) and Sandy (Dolores) quickly turns into an orgy fueled by marijuana and amphetamines, but when sex and drugs are no longer enough to give the participants their kicks, Sandy takes the action into a dangerous new direction. Shot silent with voice-over narration, In Hot Blood was directed by Joel Landwehr (aka Leo J. Rhewdnal), who also made the similarly eccentric sexploitation opus Fluctuations. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
The Lusting Hours
A smorgasbord of sexual deviance is on display in this Mondo-styled mockmentary from the golden age of sexploitation. The Lusting Hours is presented as an exposé of "sex for sale," and how it is peddled in its many forms. The films swings back and forth between rural brothels, where frankly unsophisticated local girls sell satisfaction to farmers and small-town businessmen; big city streetwalkers, who offer pleasure for pay to the dregs of society; male hustlers, who will dally with either men or women for the right paycheck; pornographers, who go from snapping cheesecake photos for fun to documenting increasingly kinky activities to support their voyeuristic habit; and sophisticated call girls whose supposedly glamorous life is at odds with the expense and risks of the flesh trade. Shot in stark black-and-white, The Lusting Hours includes appearances from sexploitation icons Michael and Roberta Findlay, under their aliases Julian Marsh and Anna Riva. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
The Ultimate Degenerate
Maria is a bored blonde vixen with exhibitionist tendencies and a lesbian roommate who is disgusted by her behavior. Hungry for kicks, sex and money, she answers an ad in the New York Review of Sex and accepts a job in Vermont, joining a harem of beautiful young women who live with and cater to a sour, wheelchair-bound eccentric named Spencer (played by director and screenwriter Michael Findlay). He injects the girls with an "aphrodisiac of my own concoction" and, with the help of his henchman, Bruno, choreographs and rehearses an elaborate sex show that is never performed for any audience. Maria goes along with the charade, hoping she'll find satisfaction for her own insatiable desires, but Bruno wants Spencer out of the way and the mansion all to himself, so he switches her dose of aphrodisiac with LSD and sets the stage for a bloody conclusion. Findlay often worked in tandem with his wife, Roberta, who serves here as producer and cinematographer (both hiding behind the pseudonyms "Julian Marsh" and "Anna Riva"). ~ Fred Beldin, Rovi
