Death Tunnel (2005)
I'll write about this later, since it is a complex
melange of positives and negatives.
For now, it's a creepy "haunted house" film with the
usual plot - five college women have to spend time in a decrepit
sanitorium. The visual style of the film is similar to Saw or maybe
Gothika - ghosts and blood in a rotting, damp building.
Kristin Novak gets topless, as do a couple of ghosties
played by Kendra Hale and Ashley Neighbors.
Kristin also removed her top a couple of years ago in
another timeless screen triumph, Malibu Spring Break.
Her film resume is starting to rival that of Derek
Jacobi or Edward Norton, or even John Cazale. Let's look at a complete
rated filmography side-by-side:

Jane Street (1996)
This is an erotic thriller with a transparent plot. Linda Hoffman has just
taken a job in New York with an ad firm, and her boss not only finds her an
apartment on Jane Street, but helps her move in. As he is leaving, we learn
that he is unhappily married. That only leaves one fact remaining for us to
figure out throughout the entire film. We get that last piece of information
immediately as Hoffman gets in the tub and sees the ghost of a dead woman,
Gabriella Hall, who lived there.
So, let's see. Hall must have been murdered, or she wouldn't be a ghost.
The boss is a letch, and seems to move employees into apartments with an eye
toward sex. If Hoffman turned him down, the movie would end there. So, he will
have his affair with her, she will not do well seeing a married man, and the
ghost will continue to make her life miserable until she solves the murder.
The boss is the obvious suspect, so it won't be him. There's nobody left but
his drunken bitch of a wife. Thus we can predict the entire film from the
first two minutes.
When Hoffman finally quits seeing the boss and takes up with the building
handyman, her co-worker (Carrie Stevens) takes up with the boss.
IMDb readers have this at 3.8. The few comments are evenly divided between
straight guys who admit the plot is weak but like the nudity, and gay guys who
were really turned off by the entire thing, but most especially seeing Robert
Grant (Queer as Folk) play the handyman, requiring him to do a love scene with
I found it a genre cliché. Three naked women, transparent plot, poor to

Sinful Deeds (2003)
This one is another direct-to-video soft-core erotic thriller based on a
totally unique premise ... strippers are being murdered.
Hmmmm, not so unique, is it?
But this one has naked women, both stripping and having sex, sometimes with
You have seen that before, you say? Well, how about this? Three of the four
naked women have only one name.
See, this is a really unique film.
As the film opens, we are introduced to the lead, Syren, in bed with her
boyfriend the banker, who doesn't like the fact that she strips. He is suspect
number one. We then see the sleazy club owner having sex with Angelica Sin.
Suspect two. The club opens, and their best customer, who is there from
opening to closing every day and stalks a woman a week, is waiting. So, we
have three suspects before we have even one ripped stripper. Before the film
is over, the murderer will kill most of the women, Syren will switch
boyfriends by taking up with the private detective she hires, and the killer
will be caught. Surprise!
Probably the most important rule in making this film was that there be no
10 minute period in which Syren does not get naked. This, evidently, was
Syren's first attempt at moving from hard core to mainstream. She gave it the
old college try, but could have used a decent script and a competent cast. A
budget big enough to permit set design would have helped as well.
IMDb readers say 2.5. I agree with the low rating. This film is a disaster.
Even at 68 minutes, it was an ordeal to watch.
Pat's comments in yellow...
On her talk show airing today, Tyra Banks will be shown going undercover as a
stripper named "Chanel" at a topless club, although she stops short of exposing
herself completely. The former Victoria's Secret lingerie model insists this is
not a sweeps month stunt, but a serious effort to educate as well as entertain.
She said she found out the majority of strip club clients are married men, so
she wanted to go inside their minds, "to see and hear why they went, and the
only way to do that was to go undercover and see for myself."
* Or she could bring them on her show and ask them, but
who wants to watch a talk show?
* Why would men want to look at hot naked women? It's a mystery wrapped in a
riddle wrapped in an enigma...
* She has no idea why anyone would want to see strippers, so she's putting them
on her show during Sweeps Month.
The group Global Language Monitor chose "Brokeback" as the Hollywood Word of
the Year, thanks to all the talk and jokes about "Brokeback Mountain." The
movie's talk factor far exceeds its success: a Google search found more than 38
million references to it, even though only about 10 million people have seen
it. In second place was "Brangelina," the annoying abbreviation for Pitt and
Jolie, which beat out "TomKat," the tabloids' nickname for Tom Cruise and Katie
