|The Plot: After a young couple show up for a quick makeout session on the beach, they discover a corpse laying just a few yards down from their current destination. When they inspect the young woman lying face-down they discover that she isn’t really actually dead at all, but has only passed out. The two run into this strange and alluring woman once again at a boat-party later in the evening. It is here that Christian (Robert Hoffman) ditches his current girlfriend and tries to bed this mysterious blonde from the beach. When the two find a hotel room, a strange gentleman breaks in and quickly instigates a knife-fight with Christian. During the battle, Christian accidentally kills this stranger in self defense. Afterwards, Christian and his blonde lover flee due to fear, but they are soon picked up by Alex. Alex is a strange man who seems heavily involved in this nefarious plot, but gives no motivations or clues. Christian and his lover do not stick around long though and they are soon wrapped up in a broad conspiracy that will baffle both Christian and any potential audience member watching at home.|
The logical deficiencies spread out through every facet of the movie. We get to watch the character of Christian stumble throughout scene after scene of dead exposition that really holds no weight in terms of what is actually going on in the story, but as he does so we are given some very peculiar lines of dialogue, which turn out to be entertaining if nothing else. This aspect of the movie could very well lead it to being a slightly more beloved piece of b-cinema if the right audiences ever find it. Romantic lines such as “I was right. You’re a sweet, sweet whore” and “I have a big razor in my room. Big, sharp, and sexy” really tend to stand out amidst all of the insanity that this movie provides. Also, who could ever forget the classic “I’m not a strong woman, Christian” line that is used throughout the entire movie? This over the top b-movie fun is actually part of what makes the movie as entertaining as it is. If it weren’t for the puzzling bits that caused audiences to scratch their head, there would almost be no reason to actually watch the film. Truly, it is a movie that can only be described as being incoherent. Sure, I believe that I actually understand the majority of what happens throughout the film, but I can fully understand if the majority of viewers just give up on it at the halfway point. In many ways, it really isn’t worth all of the trouble.
