The Spermulites of the planet Spermula are threatened by a bigger, tougher planet. So, needing a new space ball to call home, the weedy Spermulon leader ‘Big Mother’ sends some Spermulonion beings (in female earth human disguise) to earth so they can suck up all the male human sperm they can get their lips on. No, I ain’t fucking high, that’s the odd plot of this quite arty, certainly fartsy outer-space boot-knocking opera from erotic French producer Bernard Lenteric.
Dayle Haddon and Francois Duoyer are the sultry aliens who scream when they see their human forms the first time in a mirror, but then quickly calm down when they are beamed straight to France, earth, circa 1930’s and are sentenced to live like rich, perverted pigs at a huge country mansion. Decadent to the max, the alien/girls resist falling in love and set about blowing the world into extinction while the entire movie shuns reality in favour of a languid trudge thru’ high camp, stage orgasms and scenes involving wonky disco/funk music (by Jose Bartel) and turned on midget’s. And, every now and then, transexual alien Udo Kier sticks his androgynous head around the door to complain to the gals about his lack of cock and balls.
Easily the opposite of cheap, skuzzy fare such as Space Thing (68) and Wham Bam Thank You Spaceman (72), try to find the far more dream-like and cerebral original French print because the English dubbing on the American release is utterly rancid—and funny.

Fifty Shades of Grey is a film adaptation of the erotic novel of E.L. James. Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) is a graduating university senior who pitches in for a sick friend to interview billionaire business magnate Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). What started out as a one-on-one, school paper interview soon progressed into a tumultuous affair.
After the interview and photo-shoot, both part ways. Ana graduates and celebrates with friends at a bar. She calls up Christian who later sought and found her at the bar. She finds herself the following day in a hotel room with Christian but he assures her nothing intimate has happened.
The two continue to meet at Christian’s “playroom”. Christian insists that Ana signs an NDA about the affair and tells her of his penchant for sexual bondage and unconventional intimate relations. She studies the contract but ends up having relations with him, largely on his terms.
One day Ana tells of her plan to be with her mom in Georgia. She also tells Christian that she can’t stand a one-way relationship with him. Though upset, he flies to Georgia and takes her for a euphoric ride in a glider.
Despite Christian’s icy demeanor, Ana continues to get intimate with him, agreeing to his whims and BSDM-style of intimacy. She attempts to analyze his behavior, allowing him to punish her by thrashing. Finally, she realizes she can no longer stand Christian’s sexual proclivities and decides to end the affair.
The screen adaptation of E.L. James’ bestseller is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson. In this film, viewers see Johnson’s touch in executing psychosexual relationships although he presented BDSM sans the moral judgment. Those who have followed Jamie Dornan on BBC’s “The Fall” will thirst for his usual serial killer aura but soon fans will reconnect as he acts out Christian’s disturbing side.
The script perfectly captured E.L. James’ voice. It did not fall short of his fans’ expectations but Kelly Marcel may have done a better job at writing. People who have read the book and expect the film to show a barrage of porn will get a bit disappointed. The scene where both lead stars ride the glider is remarkable. In the absence of dialogues, they effectively imbued unhinged, uncontrollable bliss.
Obviously, the final scene was set-up so viewers will go catch the sequel.
A dark and brutal rape/revenge movie, Hong Kong style. Directed by Ngai Kai Lam (of Story of Ricky fame) this is a tense and disturbing thriller with a truly savage final reel.
An unassuming hostess runs afoul of a group of drunken robbers and thugs at her club, and the incident ends in them being ejected. They wait for her to leave work and then viciously beat and gang rape her in cemetary. Laughing, they leave her battered and bleeding.
This scene isn’t pleasant to watch. You’d probably expect that, but it’s filmed in a merciless style, intensely lit, and it isn’t glossed over in a few seconds. It’s not so much exploitative as it is unpleasantly honest.
Kit-Ying soon decides she’ll have her revenge no matter what the cost. She moves to Hong Kong and asks her wheelchair bound uncle Hsiung for help. He counsels her to give up and move on but gives her a job. As much as he wants to stay out of her troubles, her quest for revenge and the resulting downward spiral eventually drag him and the other innocent people around her in.
Pauline Wong is quite good as Kit-Ying; breaking down occasionally, but generally empty as she hunts down the men who raped her. The late Ching-Ying Lam is great as Hsiung. It’s unlikely you’ve ever seen a wheelchair used quite the way he uses it towards the end.
The rapists are brutish thugs but not completely stupid; after Kit-Ying eliminates one or two of them they start to figure things out. They’re tough guys and they’re not about to go down easily. The film is fairly taut revenge thriller up until the final showdown and then things go completely over the edge. That’s not to say that it plays out unrealistically; it’s a bizarre but completely primal display of savagery and the will to survive.
See Her Vengeance if you’ve got a strong stomach for extreme content and violence. It’s a raw and effective piece of work with some fine cinematography, and it’s smarter than most other films in its genre. It’s a shame Ngai Kai Lam didn’t direct more films.
