GIRL WHO SHAGGED ME
(EI Cinema DVD Region 1)
financed by US producers Seduction Cinema, this hit and miss spoof
is a British production from Manchester based Viscera Films. Not
an Austin Powers spoof (despite what the title and sleeve might
have you think) the film is instead a fairly ridiculous tale involving
a prehistoric Goddess of Lust (Anoushka) who is intent on enslaving
the world's women. Battling her are a motley mix of characters
including Misty Mundae as a female spy, assorted mad scientists
and a religious fanatic.
As you might expect, this low budget video production is a mixed
bag. At its best, it has some amusing Carry On style double entendres
which might raise a titter or two; at worst it's painfully unfunny.
Performances are equally mixed - Misty Mundae looks as sexy as
ever and manages a more-than-passable British accent, while Anoushka
is suitably sexy; British model Rachel Travers is less convincing
as both a sex symbol and an actress and the rest of the cast are
passable but strictly amateur hour thespians.
Thomas Moose directs with efficiency and the film looks as good
as you could hope for a quickie like this. I'm not fond of 'wacky'
sound effects and overly projected gags, so the humour is mostly
lost on me I'm afraid. All in all a mixed bag then - a harmless
enough diversion but hardly essential viewing unless you are a
Misty Mundae completist.
This version is the R-rated 'directors cut' and features very
little nudity; there is also an unrated edition out there which
presumably has more bare flesh in it and will probably be a lot
more entertaining as a result. This DVD does come with copious
extras including documentaries and a bizarre commentary track
where Moose and writer Andy Sawyer discuss the film while eating
