All Rise...

Judge Mitchell Hattaway suspects that this movie will set back lesbian rights by at least a decade.

The Charge

Olivia is a bad, bad girl.

Opening Statement

I don't have a problem with that.

Facts of the Case

Olivia (Misty Mundae, The Girl Who Shagged Me) is in big trouble. See, she was once strapped for cash, so she agreed to act out the twisted fantasies of a killer pimp named Guido (Dean Paul, Dr. Horror's Erotic House of Idiots), who enjoys getting off while watching two women get it on. Problem is, Olivia accidentally killed one of her partners during one of these performances; Guido threatened to kill Olivia if anyone ever tied him to the death, so Olivia packed up and left. Just as Olivia is getting ready to move into a new apartment with Melody (A.J. Khan, Lust in Space) and Alice (Julian Wells, Lust for Dracula), Guido shows up and says he's itching to see another live show. Fearing for her life, Olivia begs her new roommates to help her out. Melody and Alice agree, little knowing their lives are in danger.

(I hate writing plot summaries for movies in which the plot doesn't matter.)

The Evidence

That's right—it's another Seduction Cinema title. You know what that means, don't you? That's right—plenty of softcore lesbian shenanigans. This movie clocks it at 73 minutes, and I'd say at least 60 of those are sex scenes (including two scenes lifted from Silk Stocking Strangler, to which Flesh for Olivia is a sequel). The thin (read: so thin it's practically transparent) plot is nothing more than an excuse for director William Hellfire (Orgasm Torture in Satan's Rape Clinic) to stage a series of girl/girl couplings. Would you like a rundown of these scenes? I thought so.

In two scenes taken from the earlier movie, Misty Mundae gets it on with some actress I've never seen before, and then with Sexual Confessions star Katie Jordon. Julian Wells then gets it on with The Devil's Bloody Playthings star Zoe Moonshine. In a scene which allows her to show off her skills as an amateur proctologist, Misty then gets it on with A.J. Khan. Julian and Zoe get it on again, this time on Zoe's kitchen table. (This scene features a visual pun that straddles the line between stupid and clever: As she climaxes while being serviced by Julian, Zoe squeezes a banana so hard it shoots out of its peel.) Misty and Khan get it on again, this time for the pleasure of the killer pimp. In a scene which allows her to show off her skills as an amateur proctologist, Julian gets it on with Misty. They then get it on in front of the killer pimp, wait a few minutes, and start things up again.

Despite its brief running time and lack of plot, I did learn several things from Flesh for Olivia. First of all, if you want to get your blonde, big-boobed, lesbian roommate to drop her inhibitions and join you in a lesbian sex act while your killer pimp watches, it will require a pint of Jack Daniels. However, if you want to get your raven-haired, hetero roommate to drop her inhibitions and join you in a lesbian sex act while your killer pimp watches, it will only require three sips of beer. Speaking of blonde, big-boobed lesbian roommates, if yours comes home and complains she drove six hours to see her girlfriend and didn't get laid, she actually means she did it once in her girlfriend's bed and once on her girlfriend's kitchen table. Also, if your raven-haired roommate calls your blonde, big-boobed roommate in order to warn her about you and your killer pimp, don't worry, because your blonde, bog-boobed roommate will forget all about this by the time she gets home and still join you for a frolic on the futon. And if your blonde, big-boobed roommate inquires as to the whereabouts of your raven-haired roommate, just tell her your raven-haired roommate went to check on an aunt who contracted hepatitis from a toilet seat, as big-boobed blondes don't seem to find this the least bit suspicious. If your killer pimp comes to your apartment, pistol whips you, and then attempts to decapitate you with a hatchet, don't worry, because he'll most likely leave the pistol on the floor next to you, thereby allowing you to grab it and shoot him. If you kill your raven-haired roommate, don't videotape the crime and leave the tape in the camera where your blonde, big-boobed roommate can find it, as this only complicates things. Lastly, if you kill your blonde, big-boobed roommate by sticking the heel of your shoe into her left eye, make sure you get the blood out of the carpet; if you don't, chances are you won't get your deposit back.

Like most Seduction Cinema releases, Flesh for Olivia was shot on digital video. This particular movie looks a tad better than what I've come to expect, although it's certainly still nothing to shout about. The image is a bit soft, and there isn't much detail, but flesh tones look good (a little too good in one instance: the first woman Misty Mundae canoodles with appears to have a flesh eating virus on her left hand). The sound is hollow, tinny stereo. Dialogue (what little there is) is often buried in the mix, and no effort was made to clean up any anomalies in the track (in one exterior scene, about all you can hear is the wind hitting the mike), but there is some decent channel separation and bass action in the music. The only extras are trailers for eight Seduction Cinema releases.

Closing Statement

Is it just me, or is that the coolest cover art ever? Sure, it has absolutely nothing to do with this movie (it looks more like the artwork for an unrealized remake of Lolita), but I still love it.

The Verdict

This is nothing more than the same thing Seduction Cinema pumps out on a daily basis. Despite the wall-to-wall naked chicks, it's still guilty. Not that that will prevent me from watching it again, mind you.
