Before I wrote this review, I had to figure out a quick math problem. I remembered writing in my review for Vamps 2: Blood Sisters about the TWO big reasons I liked Glori-Anne Gilbert’s performance. But I enjoyed her performance twice as much in Lust Connection, and I couldn’t figure out why. I finally realized why there was a discrepancy. Ms. Gilbert plays two different characters in Lust Connection, and both of them get naked a lot. So I actually had FOUR big reasons to smile. Problem solved.
I don’t always enjoy erotic thrillers. Most of the time they leave me disappointed. There’s too much focus on the erotic scenes, and not enough on the actual “thriller” part of the story. I was somewhat shocked when Lust Connection actually delivered a watchable story to accompany the eroticism!
Lust Connection is all about Rick Taylor (Harper), an internet millionaire whose incredibly hot wife Susan (Gilbert with blonde hair) is found dead in a hot tub. When he becomes the prime suspect in the murder case, he confesses to the detective that he had been having affairs with women he met on the internet. Rick has a series of flashbacks to these various encounters, trying to find the woman who might have murdered his wife. Susan’s twin sister, Jenny (Gilbert with dark hair), shows up to offer support to Rick.
More than anything, this story is about Rick Taylor being the luckiest man alive. Not only does he find plenty of women on the internet willing to meet him for illicit sex, but they are all knockouts! One of them is played by porn superstar Chasey Lain, who is the subject of my favorite song by The Bloodhound Gang.
Most of the time these erotic thrillers have to settle for whatever skank actresses they can find to take their clothes off. But the producers of Lust Connection found some mighty fine women for Rick, which is the type of role I need to be auditioning for more often.
The DVD includes an extra feature film titled Night Vamps, which unfortunately has nothing to do with Vamps: Deadly Dreamgirls or Vamps 2: Blood Sisters. It stars Glori-Anne Gilbert and three other actresses. The plot for Night Vamps is spread out over four segments, each one involving an actress stripping for a camcorder. I hit the fast-forward button through the first three segments, but the final segment with Gilbert is worth watching.
Seduction Cinema is releasing three more movies from the producers of Lust Connection later this year. I’m really looking forward to the one titled The House on Hooter Hill. I’m ready to give that one five stars for the name alone.
Don’t bother adding Lust Connection to your Netflix queue. Go ahead and buy it. You won’t be disappointed.
