"Crypt of Dark Secrets"

Crypt of Dark Secrets (1976) is notable chiefly for great full frontal exposure in good light for several minutes by Maureen Ridley. Although it is billed as a swamp/voodoo/horror exploitation film, it really doesn't have that much magic, very little blood, and is mostly an excuse to get Ridley naked, not that that is a bad thing.

A disabled veteran has retired on "Voodoo Island." The sheriff becomes worried that someone will steal his money, which he keeps in a bread box in his house. He is unconcerned, as the only other person he has seen on the island is the woman who swims naked, then turns into a snake. Three miscreants overhear the bank president talking to the vet about his money, and decide to rip him off and kill him. When the snake/naked woman revives him, and explains that he is now undead, and must fulfill his special destiny. he is neither surprised nor concerned.

This is not a film to watch for plot or acting, but Ridley has a great body, and her slow dancing show sit off from every possible angle. The IMDB entry for this film has so many errors it is not worth the visit. This is from Something Weird Video, and they have turned in yet another excellent transfer of a nearly 30 year old film. Based on the nudity, which is really the point of this film, I will give it a C-.

    "Brotherhood of the Wolf"

    Brotherhood of the Wolf (2001) was covered by others, and I was so disappointed that the three volume collectors edition was sold out that I didn't bother ordering it. They have now released a three DVD collectors edition in Canada, and I was curious based on the existing reviews. The set is disappointing in one regard. The feature length commentaries are in French with no subtitles. Other than that, it is chock full of extras, including documentaries, story boards, deleted scenes, a special on the legend, and much more that I haven't had time to explore.

    For thorough reviews, visit the movie page review. My take on it is that it is visually very impressive, and is a unique approach to weaving a yarn based on an historical occurrence, but the monster was rather lame, and the film got very muddled in the last third. It does have very strong women's roles. Monica Bellucci as a hooker and more shows breasts and bum, Karen Kristrom shows breasts as a corpse, and several women show various body parts as hookers. The proper score is probably C+. The director achieved what he wanted to, and it has some very strong points, but people who don't like this sort of film won't be won over.

Maria has played a stripper more times than Zamfir has played "Somewhere My Love: Theme from Dr Zhivago". Possibly more times than TBS has shown "Roadhouse", or more than the number of lire in the Italian GNP, but our current human state of development doesn't have any level of mathematics adequate to approach a comparison of such vast numbers, so we can only make an informed speculation.

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at scoopy.com.

    • 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.

    'Caps and comments by Brainscan:


    The Last few collages from Wolfhound. The darkness of the nekkid scenes in this movie have me looking for another project to do. Something with the title of "Naked Fun in the Sun" or "The Art of the Well-Lighted Nude Scene." Something like that.

    Three babes today. Julie Cialini in two quasi-copulatory scenes. The frames in the bottom of collage 2 pissed me off. For the whole rest of the movie I had this line about what I learned from "Wolfhound", mainly that this breed doesn't do it doggee style. Then they went and threw in some of dat and ruined a perfectly good joke. There is, however, something odd about the adoption of that particular position in that particular scene.

    If'n you look closely at the first collage you can see Julie is chained to the bed, with each arm locked tight to the bed frame. So how then did she, uh, get herself, well, turned around? Huh? That and the Bermuda Triangle are the two greatest mysteries of our age.

    Collages 3 and 4 of Julie C's are the best of her el primo hootie exposure.

    • Julie Cialini (1, 2, 3, 4)

    Then we got Julie K. Smith getting groped and osculated by Regina Russell. Three collages worth. Boobs only. Acres of boobs. Hectares even.

    Julie returns the favor and fondles and smooches Regina. Again the camera stays north of the border. Have seen Ms. Russell in all them caps from Skinemax shows and thought he looked just okay, but in this movie she looks perfectly edible.

    Today, a trip back in time to 1971 and a "Babe in Bondage"...

    Orita De Chadwick in a sexploitation thriller "The Godson". We see Orita tied topless by the bad guy as bait waiting to be rescued.

    "She's Gotta Have It"
    Some good nudity by Tracy Camilla Johns in She's Gotta Have It. It's a Spike Lee movie so you have a fair idea what it's like.

    • Tracy Camilla Johns (1, 2, 3)

    "Ripper : Letter from Hell"
    Some of the caps from Ripper : Letter from Hell have appeared before. A J Cook shows some pokies through a wet night dress and a lot more is visible from somebody (or something?) impaled on a tree.

    "The Further Adventures of Tennessee Buck"
    I think the main premise of The Further Adventures of Tennessee Buck was to get former Heffer Kathy Shower naked and oiled up - and they succeeded. Some native girls are also topless and Tiziana Stella also looks very nice in an two-piece animal skin.

    "House of Cards"
    The only nudity in House of Cards is brief toplessness by Perette Pradier. The late Inger Stevens looks very nice in her underwear and Rosemary Dexter takes her bikini top off, but faces away from the camera.

    • Perette Pradier (1, 2)
    • Inger Stevens (1, 2, 3)
    • Rosemary Dexter (1, 2)

    "Where the Money Is"
    Linda Fiorentino has had a bit of exposure in the Fun House recently. She keeps her clothes on in Where the Money Is but there is a nice upskirt when she does a lap dance for Paul Newman.

    • Linda Fiorentino (1, 2, 3)

    "Dude, Where's My Car?"
    There was no nudity in Dude, Where's My Car? but it was still enjoyable to watch. A close-up upskirt of Jodi Ann Paterson, which is mild exposure on her part. Are they bunnies on her knickers? Kristy Swanson and Mitzi Martin are there for the glamour.

    "The Drowning Pool"
    In The Drowning Pool we have some see-through exposure by Gail Strickland when she is thoroughly soaked. A young Melanie Griffith looks lovely in a bikini and one of the best sets of nipples, Linda Haynes, unfortunately, only shows us some leg.

    The full frontal exposure by Deborah Kara Unger in Sunshine has appeared before (shaved pussy in the 1930s??). However, there is also brief topless exposure by Jennifer Ehle.

    "Code Name Phoenix"
    No visible nudity in Code Name Phoenix, just a lot of glamour by Christina Cox, Kristi Angus, Robyn Palmer, and some unnamed models.

    Some good frontal nudity by Marisol Padilla Sanchez in Fever and Patricia Dunnock shows has some lovely pokies.

    "Fatal Past"
    Kasia Figura is topless in Fatal Past and even more is revealed by some unnamed models.

    • Kasia Figura (1, 2, 3, 4)
    • Unknowns (1, 2)

    "Taste of Love"
    No nudity in Taste of Love, but we have Anneliza Scott looking good in a thong and pokies by Traylor Howard.

    "Crash Dive 2"
    Lada Boder is topless in Crash Dive 2 and there are pokies by Alexander Keith (aka Wendy Schumacher).

    "Attention Shoppers"
    Some of these caps of Cara Buono in her underwear in Attention Shoppers, but in the second collage there appears to be a bit of labia majora.

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    Major Faux Pas - Notoriously dull former British Prime Minister John Major has admitted to having a long affair with former cabinet official Edwina Currie before he took office. He may be sued by the satirical magazine Scallywag, which went bankrupt after he sued them for libel for suggesting he committed adultery.

  • He should've had to pay them a PR fee for polishing his image.
  • It's not fair! At the time, they thought they were only joking!
  • I don't even want to think about the years he spent under Margaret Thatcher.

    Saturday, hundreds of New Yorkers turned up for the Grand Opening of the new Museum of Sex on Fifth Avenue, only to be turned away because construction won't be finished for a week

  • They came too soon
  • Wrong time of the month
  • it wasn't fully erected yet
  • Think of it as an exhibit on "The Art of the Tease."

    Lap Dance Lessons For Britney

    -from SkyNews

    Britney Spears has been hanging out at lap-dancing clubs - for the sake of her new movie.

    The superstar's next role sees her play a stripper - and Britney wanted to research the part in person.

    Her debut movie Crossroads bombed at the box office, and Spears wants to make sure her next flick does better.

    A source close to the 20-year-old said: "If that involves a bit of method acting then so be it.

    "I'm sure she could have watched the girls stripping on video.

    "But she wanted to get a taste of the atmosphere and see the real thing in the flesh."

    Britney has even been taking private lessons to learn how to gyrate around a pole.

    The Daily Star quoted her as saying: "I have the body but now I need to learn some of the moves.

    "Being a stripper is hard work."
