SEXCULA is a skin flick of legendary lost status. Shot in Vancouver, British Columbia, it was screened once before disappearing and sought after by cult aficionados for decades. Now, Impulse Pictures is proud to bring you the world premiere of SEXCULA. Sex film fans can finally get a look at this elusive crazy Canadian erotic/horror hybrid for the first time ever. Starring a Marilyn Chambers lookalike in dual roles as Countess Sexcula, a buxom cutie with no qualms about lying nude on a table for the entire movie, and a horny bride who can’t wait for her ring. The nudity and sex are delivered nonstop in this campy horror romp. Watch in amazement at the naked picnic, the “girl-on-gorilla” strip tease, and stare in awe as a female pleasure-robot puts the plot into a time warp!
Who knew you could have soo much fun watching a man trying to get an erection! But that is pretty much our main plot of Sexcula, or at least the one that seems to get the most attention. Then again, does a movie like this really need much in the way of a plot? What we have here before us is fun film and I believe that even above the lower end porn roots, this film is fun above all else. After all, we do have a film that packs such things as a woman having sex with a monkey (man clearly in a costume) and if you can’t have fun with that then I’m not sure what your idea of a good time really is.
Also, while you might not expect it from a film like this, the acting is solid on top of all the wacky stuff we get to see on screen. So there is some actual porn stuff. We have some comedic beastiality and an all-around comedic film with very erotic roots. There is something for everyone who is a fan of cult cinema and at the tip of everything it is what it is and that’s that. Sexcual is sexploitation nothing more and nothing less. It does have some pretty graphic sexual elements, but it is still a film with other value if you do want to check it out.
