First of all, the plot which may contain spoilers. Kaylani Lei plays Sonya, a woman who has had an eye transplant. Once the bandages come off she begins to have visions of the donor's death which looks like murder. No-one believes her and so she starts her own investigation which leads her into the world of adult entertainment, lesbian psychiatrist and ultimately to the suspect killer. Will she expose the truth in time and was it really murder?
This film was originally hardcore when released in the US but of course we cannot have that here so the hard stuff has been panned and scanned out and some substitution has been inserted. The real problem though is the picture quality. It used to be said that the porn industry drove video technology but on this showing the technology has taken several steps back. Whether it's the pan and scan or whether it was meant to be this way, the picture is fuzzy and light colours are saturated. What colours there are, are faded and skin tones are almost grey. Adjusting the colours and contrast on the TV made little difference. It's even worse for the visions scenes with the added distractions of flashing lights and fast editing. Anyone susceptible to flashing lights should stay clear.
Being the UK version, the sex scenes are fairly tame with the best probably the one featuring Taylor Rain and Evan Stone. All the women are thankfully natural and they look all the better for it (IMO). There is a doctor/nurse scene which adds nothing to the plot but is no doubt there to increase the sex quotient. Hardcore stalwart, Mike Horner appears as the hospital surgeon but has no sex scene. Talking of the hospital, they could have picked a better set which looks like a disused factory. According to the blurb on the back, this film was nominated for eleven AVN awards so one can only hope the judges were watching a better version than this.
Other technical stuff: the DVD is PAL Region 0, the aspect ratio is 4:3 and the run time is 146 minutes.
