Curious Obsessions (2006) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Before the heady days of the video revolution, choices were quite limited for anyone who wanted celluloid images of naked flesh. One option was to visit an adult bookstore and entertain yourself with some nudie loops - and no, I’m not talking about an exciting new breakfast cereal.
You could, of course, watch adult movies in the comfort of your own home if you had a film projector. You’d also need a healthy bank balance too; films for your projector would not have come cheap. This, however, is no hindrance to the two ladies who feature in `Curious Obsessions’. Bethany Lott and Jackie Stevens find a film projector and some reels of film on their doorstep thanks to an inept postman. Bethany sets up the projector and, in what is the only piece of dialogue in the whole film, Jackie quaintly refers to the films as “tapes.”
The remainder of the film plays out in the manner of a music video. The film reels that Bethany has received are color nudie loops from, at a guess, the late 1960s and early 1970s. As Bethany and Jackie watch the projected action, they become hot and bothered and dispense with their clothes.
Fans of older softcore material should find the film reels of interest. They are mostly solo scenes, but there are a couple of women paired together. These do not contain any lesbian action although the implication is there as they disrobe. The women featured are of varying ages and are mostly quite voluptuous with natural curves, no implants here. The most notable difference between the softcore images in these films against those of today is the forests of pubic hair on display. If you only watched modern sex films, you’d be forgiven for thinking that evolution had moved on apace in the last thirty years. Thankfully, lingerie has evolved since then. Some of the underwear sported by the women in these old films is truly horrifying.
As for Bethany and Jackie, we see them in two scenes together plus a solo scene each. Bethany’s naked cavorts with some film stock and film reels are beautifully realized. She is a brunette with long, straight, soft hair and a slim build that gives her a look not dissimilar to Misty Mundae. Bethany’s supple body is displayed in the behind-the-scenes featurette as we see her yoga-style with her foot behind her head. She then goes on to show us what I will only refer to as her twixt leg elasticity.
Jackie Stevens made her film debut in this movie and she gives a creditable performance here. She is, like her co-star, a brunette but with shorter, darker hair to go with her natural look and ready smile. She also appears in the similarly-themed Secret Desires.
`Curious Obsessions’ will not appeal to those looking for a sex film with a story. It is really just a series of set pieces interspersed with old softcore fare.
