Critical Rating: AAA
Ex-Playmate Teri Weigel's debut in Inferno begins auspiciously enough. So does the feature. It's a morning that's already soaked in sweat, and Weigel is strutting around her house naked as a jaybird. She cools herself down with an ice cube from the frige and she's being observed by drifter, Merril Magilo (or Maglio?--two spellings are given in the credits).
But from this point, the Body Heat confrontational video we're expecting, evaporates into the central air conditioning duct. Husband Joey is philandering with Alicyn Sterling. Weigel, likewise has an extracurricular thing going with Marc Wallice, who has enough time to make a pit stop with Ashley Nicole, Joey's sister-in-law. And Joey's brother (Joey Murphy) is supposed to be some kind of bum but he never has a speaking part and drops out of sight after a sex scene with Nicole--maybe he went looking for a job.
Weigel's sexvid baptism is courtesy of Wallice and it's a scene that will merit award considerations. Wallice lifts her off her feet and screws her in mid air. I envy any guy who can perform that feat. Unfortunately, namby-pamby Magilo is all wrong, physically, (see mainstreamers The Drifter or Two Moon Junction and you'll understand why) for the role as this seedy, greasy drifter. He's supposed to elicit these uncontrollable urges from Weigel, but she's already done it with Wallice, so there's no big deal, here. There's no resolution to anything--just lots of people existentially screwing around. The look is sharp, crisp and different thanks to some new video surroundings besides the avocado ranch. Weigel begs to be seen again, and though it has some weak points, Inferno does do her physical justice.
