The Zebra Club is just another interracial shot-on-video quickie intended to capitalize on the burgeoning market for black/white tapes. Fans of this genre may like what they see here (there are plenty of mixed race couplings), but overall the sex and the production values could both use some improvement.
The club provides the setting for every sex act. People walk into the club, a hooded maitre d' shows them to their bed, and away they go: no script, no dialogue, no acting. Of course, other "all-sex" features with the same format get higher ratings. But that's because they're all sex. Here, other than a scene with Barbara Dare licking honey off some lucky guy's honeycomb, we're left with a hodgepode of couplings that lack feeling and sensuality. And just when I thought I was going to make it through an X-rated picture without a lesbian scene, they throw in an all-girl three-way as the oily finale (and it's not that good).
The videography here is also lacking. The cameras are held so close, that when they try to follow the moving players the jumpy picture leaves the audience feeling seasick. Also, most of the faces and action are lost outside the picture frame.
I would only recommend this tape for diehard interracial fans. Other prospective members of "Zebra Clubs" can find better accommodations elsewhere.
