School of Surrender is a direct-to-vid that has not made
it to the US market. I recently wondered what had become of our old friend
Lloyd A. Simandl and his Czechsploitation films. He is alive and
well with his North American Pictures studio, but simply not
releasing in the US. This, like all of his other films, features
naked Czech women being tortured, abused, and fondled.
Petra Slavik runs an institute for wayward girls, where she
trains them to be perfect sex companions using sleep deprivation,
electric shock, isolation, whipping, and frequent lesbian caresses.
Dagmar Vejnar brings in her stepdaughter Ivetta Zirnicek for
training. She want the stepdaughter to give up her inheritance so
she can clear cut it and retire. Silly Ivetta had something more
like a national park in mind. While Ivetta is in training, Dagmar is
given a loaner, Marie Veckova, to cater to her every whim. Meanwhile, when Petra Slavik isn't taking care of special
requests like Ivetta Zirnicek, or Katerina Vrana, whose husband has
brought her in to heighten her sexual response, she is training and
reselling wayward girls.
Petra Slavik, Katerina Vrana and Dagmar Vejnar show breasts.
Marie Veckova, Ivetta Zirnicek and a bunch of unknowns show
IMDb readers have not weighed in on this one, nor are there any
comments. This is wall to wall female nudity with a bare suggestion
of a plot, more than a little torture and lots of girl/girl action.
Given that Simandl films are sort of a genre unto themselves, this
is a C. It has exactly what you buy one for. It is now available in
the US from rldvds.com on an all-region PAL. It is in English, with
optional Dutch subtitles.
Scoop's notes: Most of Simandl's
recent films (including this one) are in the Bound Heat series, and
can be found at
http://www.BoundHeat.com. This is an absolutely superlative web
site. Not only is the site pleasant and fun to look at, but it
offers a massive amount of free clips and galleries from the
recent Czechsploitation classics, as I believe Spaz has indicated on some
Lloyd Simandl is a real old-world gentleman. In recent weeks I
had the chance to pass some time chatting with him, because he was
concerned about a large number of hits coming from our members'
section. He thought it might be direct linking or outright piracy
(he offers immediate direct downloads of his films), and he didn't
know how to check it out since the links were coming from a
password-protected page. I told him that it was just Spaz linking to
the Bound Heat home page to tell people how to find more films with
Maria Veckova. I also told him that Spaz was a huge fan, with Scoopy
Junior and Tuna not far behind. You can't imagine a nicer guy. He
give me his direct phone line, offered Scoopy Jr. a tour of the
studios if he ever gets to Prague again, and told me he could
probably wrangle an autographed pic of Maria for Spaz! (Are you
reading this, Spaz?)
Here is what he said about Maria: "As to Marushka Veckova. She is
in about 6 of the Bound Heat movies and will be in more, since she
is not just 'terminally cute' but also a nice person and an aspiring
actress. Albeit I have promised her that next time she will finally
get to play a really nasty character :)."
Anyway, go to BoundHeat.com
Simandl selection from Rare Licensed Dvds and do some shopping.
BoundHeat sells direct downloads as well as DVDs. Tuna gave you the
basic overview of their products above: wall-to-wall nudity from
women in prison, obedient lesbians, white slavery, and other sorts
of dominant/submissive specialty material.
