Critical Rating: AAA
Any tape that has seven - count 'em, seven - hot sex scenes and a cast this good deserves to score high marks. Laying The Ghost is very erotic. But a problem holds this one back.
This story bears some similarities to Leslie's own Mad Love of a couple of years ago, only this time, it's two perpetually horny ghosts (Peter North, T.T. Boy) haunting a newly-arrived family. Without trying to enumerate all the action, the hottest couplings, sans sound, would be between housewife Wane and North; Savannah, North and Boy, and Summers, North and Boy. The trouble is, Leslie has elected to overdub any sex scenes involving the ghosts with irritating laughter that totally destroys any mood that could be built up between the participants.
Almost as irritating is Silvera, who shouts most of his lines. He's so loud, even his fellow cast members urge him to quiet down. Is this supposed to represent the sexual tension he feels living in the same house with his wife's extra-beautiful sister (Savannah)? If so, it doesn't work. On the other hand, Tom Byron's "Valley Boy" accent works fairly well. (He plays the assistant to psychic Angela Summers.) So for a change, it isn't the fast-forward button that would improve this tape; it's the volume control.
