Here’s a movie that takes everybody off guard, even hardened exploitation vets. It’s just impossible to believe that anyone would be sick and depraved enough to make this movie, let alone release it, let alone watch it. So needless to say we consider it a very great honor to present it. It’s one of those melodramas where things get worse and worse for the heroine as she gets closer an closer to the source of her odd sexual obsession, in this case an unhealthy relationship with her toys. As the story develops she spirals farther and farther down into the nightmarish pit of her dark and convoluted fantasy life, losing her job, her husband and her dignity as she becomes a high priced New York prostitute, specializing in kinky roleplay.  The ending of this movie is so shattering and unexpected that it leaves audiences completely stunned. I won’t spoil it for you but trust me, you want to be there to see it. (Lars)
