The world of erotic thrillers is a very interesting one indeed, and it is moviemaking like no other.
It seems that there are two or three templates that all directors religiously follow, be it the plot, or the sex scenes (their number, variations and style).As the cliche goes, watch one erotic thriller and you watch them all, but as we all know this is not the case, for no matter how lame or repetitive the formula is, it is a huge hundreds of million dollars market that is specifically aimed at people who do not watch hardcore (or pretend not to) but who at the same time want a bit of sauce with the excitement of a thriller.
In all erotic thrillers you will always find the following,
1-There is always a psycho male or female, either bent on revenge for some misdeed that happened when they were too young to remember, or an obsessive person who either likes to watch people getting it on ,or is scheming to get richer and richer and has no qualms about sleeping with lots of people (before killing them that is) to achieve his/her goal.
2-The man is usually a high flying businessman, played almost always by an actor who looks more like a freelance stripper than a dealmaker, while the woman is 6 feet tall, with looks, body and health that would suggest catwalk rather than taking care of the little offsprings.
3-Most women who play the lead in erotic thrillers are indeed either veterans of the catwalks..(Probably thinking it is a good move into Hollywood that might one day lead to Oscars rehearsals,Angie Everhart,Amber Smith,Joan Severance...),or graduates of the soft core/magazine industry (Jacqueline Lovell, The Tweeds,Julie Strain....)
4-The plot is usually so lame and predictable, invariably the fast forward function is never used as much as for these films.Yet it is a good excuse to watch them, exactly like claiming to buy Playboy for the interviews and articles, a story in erotic thrillers can be an excuse for watching the numerous sex scenes.The acting is mostly from the 'overacting that flows from your ears' school of acting, while the directors have usually an ego the size of Texas (a film by so and so is usually the first to appear on the credits) without the talent to match .
5-The sex scenes all look the same no matter how many films you watch, as if all erotic thriller directors have a sort of agreement between themselves to shun any originality.The same pans,close ups,cuts,positions, and camembert tunes, with the ubiquitious girl-girl scene.It always amazes me how people in erotic thrillers and at the very first touch are consumed by an incredible passion and unbearable ecstacy,and it makes me wonder what did they have for dinner? (whatever it is , I am ordering some right now!), but since the 'action' only lasts for ten or fifteen seconds at most, I will think twice before ordering anything.
So, Sexual Predator has all these elements, and of course it also has the incredibly gorgeous and sexy Angie Everhart who is a delight to watch, with or without her clothes,and is worth buying this DVD for.
If you are a fan of erotic thrillers, then Sexual Predator will not certainly not disappoint, providing lame acting, but beautiful women.
