I don't know jack about this movie. These captures
were made from the ICMS videos (see his section below). The lighting
was funky, and I played with them way too much, so the quality
varies dramatically, but I did as many as possible, because this film
is underrepresented in the encyclopedia.
This film was created some seven years after Last
Tango, and Maria Schneider had trimmed down considerably. While she
had lost all of her baby fat, she had also lost a good deal of her
appeal as well.
Dear Uncle Scoops.
Congratulations on hitting the 10 year mark! I've been an avid reader
and viewer since '98 and I'm pretty sure I've read every issue since
and have enjoyed the ride thoroughly. A sincere 'thank you' to
yourself, Junior and
of the other contributors who have made the Fun House one of the most
entertaining stops on the web.
Accolades aside, I have a challenge for the staff, one that may
require a sort of nudity idiot savant to answer it: there's a
Docker's commercial set on two trolley cars in San Francisco which
features a truly fine brunette (I'd docker). She's cute as a button
and I'd love to find out her name so I could use the tried and true
method of googling all I can about her.
Scoop replies: I think her name
is Karolina Wydra, and she's Polish.

Fantasm Comes Again (1977)
This project exists because Fantasm was such a financial success, both in
Australia and overseas. The producers felt they had a winning formula,
investors, and an eager market, so they returned to LA to shoot another ten
short sex comedies using hard and soft core porn stars. They also got brave,
an upped the budget to $75K. This time they were not banned in Melbourne, but
while the sequel made a profit, it was nowhere near the hit the original was.
It did very well in foreign markets, however. Some of the overseas
distributors had asked for hard core footage, so they spent a day in San
Francisco shooting hard core inserts in case they were needed. They of course
picked San Francisco because the police were not going after hard core
companies there. The footage never ended up getting used, and is now missing.
Like the original, this was shot an episode a day for 10 days on 16 mm stock,
then blown up to 35 mm, and the connecting sequences were filmed in Australia.
Rather than repeating the device in which the psychiatrist commented on
female fantasies, they switched the framing device to a retiring newspaper sex
advice columnist on his last night, breaking in his replacement, played by
Angela Menzies-Wills, who was chosen when the producers saw her nude pictorial
in a Sunday tabloid. They wanted an Australian woman to haul to openings and
promotions, and they got that, but the filmmakers also expected her to get
increasingly naked as the night progressed, but she wasn't willing to undress
for the movies. We do see her breasts through a partially open blouse by the

IMDb readers say 3.5 with only 20 votes. Both this and the original
represent a time capsule of the 70s, and a rather painless way to see XXX
stars in soft core roles. Note that both DVDs are the most complete,
uncensored versions of these films ever shown, and have feature length
commentaries. Fantasm Comes Again simply does not work quite as well as the
original and is therefore a C.
'Caps and comments by Dann:
There has been a plethora of killer web-site movies in the last couple of
years, most of them dreadful, but this 2005 entry stands out because it's a
pretty good thriller. In addition, I'm an Armand Assante fan, and he was
good as the beleaguered detective in this one.
A detective almost ready to retire, and with a terminal illness that he's
trying to hide from everyone, gets saddled with a serial killer case where the
killer displays the murders on a web site. Even worse, the killer seems to be
tracking the cop's every move, and displays THAT on the web site as well.
The boss cops bring in a team of computer experts, but the detective scorns
their efforts, insisting that good old-fashioned police work is what will solve
the case. He may be right, as the experts are continually stymied.
Not a great movie, maybe, but exciting and fun to watch. I recommend it.
First of all congratulations on the 10th anniversary of the Fun House. I think
I started reading your blog avant la lettre somewhere end 1996 begin 1997, I
can't remember when exactly. Thank you for giving me (and others no
doubt) something to look forward to every day during that long period and
hopefully still for a long time to come. In all those years many celeb sites
came and went, but the Fun House is still here, solid as the rock of
Gibraltar, and looking better than ever. That is quite an achievement in the
often fleeting internet environment. Now I'll proceed to business as usual
but maybe we can all sing along "For he's a jolly good fellow" on the occasion
Today I've got 6 clips (1,
6) from a French film from 1979 in which
Maria Schneider show their best full frontal bits. La Dérobade deals
with the not so glamorous sides of prostitution and isn't an easy watch. As
far as I know this movie isn't available on DVD anywhere. I recorded it quite
some time ago but still from a crappy analog cable TV channel. Oddly enough
the clips seem to have come out better than the original (much of the image
noises and atmospheric disturbances are gone!). Please check for yourself.
