Beauty Betrayed (2000) is a soft core whodunnit with a staggering
8 women showing skin.
Renee Rea, after having sex with a photographer, is shot to death
in the shower by someone she knows. Fan of Renee? Don't worry, she
shows back up in a film within the film, again in a fantasy
sequence, and one more time as her twin sister.
A detective and his girlfriend, who works for the coroner, are
called to investigate. He arrives on the scene to find out that he
won't be working solo on this case. He has been assigned a pushy
female partner. Since the deceased is a model, and prime suspects
include other models, the head of the modeling agency, her twin
sister and a horny photographer, and also since our detective is
something of a horndog, there is ample opportunity for nudity on the
way to the final solution. Oh, and those who think they have already
figured out whodunnit, you are all wrong. It was not the surprise
We have nudity from Renee Rea, Vicca, Mia Zottoli, Samm Croft,
Tracy Ryan, Keri Windsor, Devinn Lane, Mia Zottoli and Anna de Cardi,
including a rather nice girl/girl scene with Keri Windsor and Devinn
This is a clear C, a solid genre picture. The plot is not bad,
and avoids most clichés, there are lots of naked women, most of the
cast is likable, and some of the sex scenes have heat. The music was
not oppressive, but the camera work and editing included too many
cross fades, else it could have been a genre classic C+.
This has been released in the US and on cable in both an R and an
Unrated version, which invalidated the IMDb score, since there is no
way to know which version the voters are rating.
The unrated version is only available in the US from RLDVDs.com on a dual region
(1 and 4) English NTSC DVD. For more information, click on the image
