"The Loving Touch"

The Loving Touch (1970) is a roughie based on the fact that it is clearly low budget with a full quota of breast exposure, but has far more plot than was typical of these films. It has also been released as The Psycho Lover, The Lonely Touch and the psycho killer. Someone has confessed to the rape and strangulation of three women, then later claims they were just dreams. Police bring in a shrink, Lawrence Montaigne, who is married to a woman who is a lush, and constantly harasses him because he gives all of his affection to his mistress. The wife steadfastly refuses a divorce.

The shrink comes up with a plan based on The Manchurian Candidate to have the killer, who was released for lack of evidence and is now his private patient, brainwashed into killing his wife. Several of the plot points are interesting. Made with a little more budget and more careful writing, this cold have been a very good suspense thriller. Nudity is as follows:

Sharon Cook: breasts and buns being raped and strangled before the opening credits. Elizabeth Plumb: breasts in several sex scenes as the girlfriend. Diana Jones: breasts as another victim Lynn Lyon: breasts and buns as a dancer in the killer's dream sequence.

Two unknowns also add to the breast count -- one as a victim, the other as a model posing for Diana Jones. There are not enough votes to rate this at IMDB. It is the latest Something Weird release, and the video quality is not as good as is usual for the feature film of the two, but the film is more interesting than the norm. The DVD includes trailers, exploitation art and featurettes. How you score it depends on what genre you place it in. As a roughie, it is better than the norm, but doesn't have enough sex to be an erotic thriller, and has too much nudity to be a regular thriller. I suppose the proper score is C. Fans of 60's exploitation will be glad they watched it.

    Red Dragon (2002)


    I like Red Dragon very much, but if you want to read about it go here, because I really wrote more about the entire series of Hannibal Lecter films than about this specific film. I compare the box office, the exit interviews, the appeal by age and gender, the IMDb scores, and similar minutiae which are of interest mainly to serious film geeks.


    Porn Star: the Legend of Ron Jeremy (2001)

    Pornstar: the Legend of Ron Jeremy is a documentary. Jeremy is the type of man who is loved by everybody, yet gets close to nobody, and manages his entire life to stay so busy that he never notices how lonely he is. Sad, joyful, all-too-human, fascinating must-see documentary if you have any interest in Jeremy or what it's like to be biggest star in the porn industry. The deleted scenes on the DVD tell even more about his life. I recommend it as a fascinating rental.

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or Mick Locke, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! - If you thought suing McDonald's for making their burgers too big was ridiculous, here's something even sillier: Nikolay Salakhov of Pavlov-Posad, Russia, grew some 40-pound pumpkins on his balcony, and one of them fell on his head and knocked him out. So he's suing the seed company. He claims the seed package said the pumpkins would grow only as big as pears.

  • Yes, but he bought them at the Chernobyl Home Depot.
  • The seed company claims THEIR pears grow up to 40 pounds!
  • He was nearly squashed!
  • If he thinks he'll win this case, he must've suffered brain damage.

    Hot Monkey Passion - The goofy NBC soap opera "Passions," which has already featured witches, ghosts and ax-wielding maniacs, has now introduced an orangutan named Precious, who will develop lustful thoughts for her hunky owner, Luis, and be jealous of two women competing for him. The producers are trying to put a new spin on the old "love triangle" plot. They will show Precious' fantasies about Luis, including going dancing in a prom gown with him, feeding each other strawberries, a wedding and children.

  • If a soap opera hunk and an orangutan had a child, it would grow up to be that "Joe Millionaire" guy.
  • They did learn an unpleasant truth: Never, EVER feed an orangutan strawberries.
  • This will be the first FEMALE trained ape to play a romantic lead on a soap opera.
  • They've added an orangutan and jumped the shark, all at the same time!
  • Luis now wears an eye patch, after his girlfriend put his eye out with a banana.

    TRIVIA! Galen Gering, who plays Luis, was one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People of 2000"...And Precious was one of Hustler magazine's "50 Sexiest Unshaved Females."
