REVIEWS

 

Critical Rating: AAA 1/2

In today’s world of “fast-food” video, it’s nice to see somebody putting some time and effort (and apparently money) into a video production.  Cabaret Sin is a futuristic, moody piece that will remind you of a number of Hollywood hits (The Terminator, Star Wars, 1984, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, Blade Runner).  But where all similarity ends is in the sex.  While maybe not the raunchiest or hottest tape around, Cabaret Sin does deliver some poignant pairings filled with missionary and oral gratification.

Greg Derek plays a Mel Gibson/Harrison Ford character in search of a killer who’s stealing some type of decoder.  As an eliminator, it’s Derek’s job to find the thief and eliminate them (what else?).  Underneath the main story is a plotline about lost love, which is not well established until the ending, which is somewhat of a twist, but isn’t really the end.  “To Be Continued” is promised.

While the plot may be strictly Blade Runner-ish, the setting is right out of Star Wars and Thunderdome.  Derek’s search for the killer leads him to the Pleasure Dome, a sinful bar/cabaret where the sexually oppressed people of Los Angeles (2020 A.D.) find sexual fulfillment played out on stage, much like the cult-classic Café Flesh.  Dancers turn the exotic into erotic, as Queen Tut (Lori Lovett) bumps and grinds with Tom Byron, and Bunny Bleu.

Rolling fog, location shots and the use of many different camera angles and special effects really give this tape a quality feel.  Only the sound proves a problem.  The original soundtrack drowns out most of the dialogue, and that leaves us groping for straws... and a story.  Still, Cabaret Sin entertains and excites.  Definitely worth a look.
