I found Lust With the Stranger to be among the lesser shot-on-video presentations I've seen recently, either for business or pleasure. An inane plot, poor production values and boring sex make this video worth the effort to avoid.
A teacher (Tess Ferre) brings her students (all three of them) on a field trip to a ghost town. But teach's girlfriend who lives nearby (Kristara Barrington) tells the girls to stay away because there is a "stranger" (Buck Adams) lurking around. But the girls go anyway and are accosted by the silent stalker.
Sounds interesting, but all hopes of entertainment of eroticism fade along with the camera's color reproduction (skin tones fade from bright orange to ghostly white on occasion) and close-up focus. also, during the outdoor scene between Melissa Melendez and the "Stranger," flying insects decide to join the fun and land precariously on certain parts of the male and female anatomy. The indoor sex scenes could use some ants in the pants to get the bodies moving.
And "Stranger" is the right term to describe Buck Adams' character. What else besides strange would you call a guy who tells Barrington to wait a minute during a romp so he can untie his sneakers? I always thought bad men in the wild west wore boots, not tennis shoes.
The story ends with the stranger being someone's lost brother and everyone decides to turn the ghost town into an adult tourist attraction. Considering the video, this ending is appropriate.
