Great news is that Command Video has unearthed a heretofore unreleased Cecil Howard gem (and I do mean, gem) entitled Dreamwalk.
If this isn't Nina Hartley's best performance, brother it at least ranks right up there with The Passion Within and Taboo VI. In fact, the Hartley character Louise in Dreamwalk is built along similar lines to the Doreen Torney character of Taboo VI: that of a woman sexually obsessed with her brother. A similar notion prevails here with Hartley and Paul Thomas. Or should I say suspicion, because the exact nature of their relationship to one another is the tension element. Because you see, we're not really clear on the issue of Thomas-Hartley, so then the whole Thomas' son (Tom Byron) and Hartley's "niece" (Stacey Donovan) —thing, takes on an entirely different notion. They exchange sly winks. Byron smells her panties... are they likewise up to no good? Is there a question of blackmail and other sordid goodies?
This is another one of the intriguing Anne Randall escapes that requires a Freudian textbook, roadmap and a compass. As the typical, aseptic gonad we've come to know and love in these features, thomas is inspiringly languid. He's well cast. The sex is virulent, animalistic and perfect, and there are studies sequences here (a Rosemary's Baby hell vision in particular) that are some of the most excitingly creative I've seen in video. A must have feature in your store or your adult section cannot be complete.
