One Shocking Moment/The Abnormal Female/The Maidens of Fetish Street [Special Edition] [DVD]

Three sleazy samples of 1960's sexploitation are presented in all their kinky glory on this triple-feature DVD from Something Weird Video. One Shocking Moment, The Abnormal Female and Maidens of Fetish Street have all been transferred to disc in their original full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1; all three look good considering their obscurity, though One Shocking Moment fares best thanks to its relatively expert photography and the clean quality of its source materials. The audio for the three features has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo, preserving the original monophonic sound mixes, and they sound as good as can be expected for exploitation movies shot in the mid-1960's. All three movies are in English, with no multiple language options included. Bonus materials here include three trailers for three kink-heavy exploitation features (the features attractions are not among them, however), a grainy 8mm peep-show loop called Punishment Party, and a gallery of film stills and artwork from Something Weird's "Sick Sixties Sex" trading card series accompanied by radio spots for vintage exploitation fare. Adventurous film buffs looking for an evening of quality perversity will find just what they're looking for on this DVD, which lives up to Something Weird's usual high standards in low-brow cinema.

One Shocking Moment
Ted V. Mikels wrote and directed this sexploitation opus about a couple whose marriage is severely tested when they move to the Big City. Cliff (Phillip Brady, aka Gary Kent) is a top Midwest salesman for a metal manufacturing firm who is rewarded for his hard work with a new assignment -- working at the company's main office in Los Angeles. Cliff and his wife Mindy (Lee Anna) settle into the new apartment a company representative has picked out for them and soon they meet Joanie (Maureen Gaffney), their next door neighbor. Cliff is intrigued to discover Joanie works as an exotic dancer at a nightclub run by her attractive but hard-edged roommate Tanya (Verne Martine). Cliff and Mindy pay a visit to the club and Cliff likes what he sees; before long he's jumped head-first into the swinging California lifestyle, spending his spare time at Tanya's club and having an affair with his secretary, while Mindy strikes up a friendship with Joanie, who encourages her to let her wild side run free. Meanwhile, we learn that Tanya does more than just run a nightspot; she also works as a dominatrix, eagerly abusing men for the right price. When a celebration over landing a new account turns into an orgy at Cliff and Mindy's place, Cliff tries to seduce Joanie and Mindy performs a drunken strip-tease for the guests; both actions have regrettable consequences for all involved. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

The Abnormal Female
Several troubled women discuss their sexual peculiarities with a concerned but understanding psychiatrist in this "white coater" sexploitation feature. Dr. Schuman allows us to listen in as several of his female patients discuss their erotic deviance. Vicki can only derive satisfaction from tormenting men, some of whom are only too glad to taste the sting of her whip. Sherri is a married woman who enjoys the company of men who "talk dirty" to her; when her husband refuses to abide her requests, she begins picking up strange men who are willing to verbally abuse her in the manner she requires. Sherri's sister Kathy is a nymphomaniac who has sex with as many men as possible, often bedding down with partners without even learning their names. And Janet had been married for a year when her husband talked into taking part in a ménage et trios; now Janet has discovered she prefers the touch of another women to that of a man, and has taken up with her best friend Diana. Viewers should be aware that filmmaker George Rodgers has not allowed Dr. Schuman's therapeutic advice to get in the way of depicting the sleazy details of his patient's forbidden desires for the audience's edification. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

The Maidens of Festish Street
Sexual frustration and misplaced desire turns two lonely men into emotional wreckage in this oddball sexploitation effort. Loveless Nick can't find a girlfriend, so he spends his evenings at a burlesque theater, where he becomes obsessed with Eve, a well-proportioned exotic dancer. Meanwhile, his friend Joe has fallen in love, but it's his poor fortune that the apple of his eye, Margo, is a street-hardened prostitute who openly taunts him even after he's paid for her company. Haunted by images of Eve and his encounter with Sandra, an artist's model who poses nude for her lesbian lover, Nick decides he can no longer stand his loneliness and pays a call to a brothel. However, the red-light establishment turns out to be "the House of Fetish," where he's first treated to an S&M show and then handed over to Toni, a prostitute who tortures Nick within an inch of his life. Maidens of Fetish Street was distributed by Bob Cresse through his Olympic International Films, a key source of 60's "roughies." ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
