Wow. “Supervixens” is a sexploitation film that you will never forget for its portrayal of sex and women and will definitely make you wonder why you are watching it. Is it any good? Yes, yes it is. Russ Mayer’s voyeuristic film is nothing more than a fun adventure and the he film’s narrative; he takes you a ride to sexual pleasure and comedy. It is no masterpiece, but with lots of nudity (and many breasts), the film is comedic, often silly and quite pointless in plot.
Clint Ramsey has to leave his job working at Martin Bormann's gas station and flee after his wife is murdered by psycho cop Harry Sledge, who tries to pin the murder on Clint. Crossing America, Clint gets sexually harassed on all sides by various voluptuous nymphomaniacs, and it all ends in a literally explosive climax.
You will think to yourself when watching the film, “why did I decide to watch this?” Well it was either because you thought it looked quite corny and silly and thought it might have been a bit of fun, or you are just a little pervert. This film is packed with breasts and wild nudity, and as the poster for the film suggests, it’s “too much for one movie”.
The first thing you can see with the film is that it is hugely cheap. No recognisable actors, low quality cameras, and no fancy sets are used with his film. The technical aspect does not ruin the film of course, but everything just looks like it went to no expense. It is super campy and quite cliché but undoubtedly a heap of fun. It is a very dirty film, and I am sure most women will digress this film, which is understandable.
The film is good yes, but the fact of it being a corny sexploitation film is unquestionable. It is fun to watch, but many aspects are rather pointless. The special thing about this film however, is the simple idea that director Russ Meyer takes you on the trip. Our main character, Clint (perhaps homage to Clint Eastwood) encounters many women that try to have sex with him. These beautiful sex machines seem to be an annoyance to Clint as he just keeps running as he keeps encountering trouble. It is definitely funny to see him practically being raped by these sex-hungry women.
That is where the fun aspect of it all is. The fact that all these women are at his mercy to have sex with him, and he knows he cannot under the circumstances they are at each time. This is the kind of film that you watch with your friends and poke fun at, and perhaps even make a few perverted jokes. In addition, in all honesty, the women featured in the film are pure models. I will not elaborate on that, which is all I can say.
The 70’s brought many controversial films, the video pornographic industry to rise and many wild films came along with it. “Supervixens” is one of those wild films. Overall, it may not be a masterpiece, but it reflects the late 60’s freedom of sex movement and the 70’s wild pornographic uproar in a fun and corny way. Wacky, energetic and totally absurd, "Supervixens" is still a reasonably entertaining film. Definitely, worth checking out if you can withstand the nudity.
My Rating: 7.5/10
