DVD Review

It's about frigging time that Seduction Cinema, those purveyors of such lusty modern classics as Lord of G-Strings and Mummy Raider, teamed up their biggest star (Misty Mundae) with her not-so-well-known sister (Chelsea Mundae) to star together as co-leads in a project. Sin Sisters, from writer/director Tony Marsiglia (Dr. Jekyll and Mistress Hyde) not only marks the pairing of the Mundaes as leads, but boxes it up in a surprisingly enjoyable neo-noir wrapper, admittedly one with plenty of gratuitous female nudity.

Cynthia (Misty) and Morgana (Chelsea) are sisters embroiled in one of those good ol' love/hate relationships, the kind where nasty, spiteful Cynthia heaps mounds and mounds of verbal and physical abuse on mousy, timid Morgana. Their bond is put to the test when a vengeful Cynthia accidently kills the snobby Beth (Andrea Davis), the Dean's assistant at their college, after the sultry coed is stripped of her valedictorian status because she was caught masturbating in the school shower (don't ask, just go with it). With a dead body in the trunk of their car, the girls head to the mountains and then somehow end up being held prisoners in a remote cabin by an equally horny, pistol-packing nutjob named Juli (Julian Wells). What follows is a series of "games" designed to test Cynthia and Morgana, with the winner being promised freedom and the loser to become Juli's unwilling sex slave.

The refreshingly cool thing about Sin Sisters is that Marsiglia transcends the usual plotless bump-and-grind of the typical Seduction title, and injects an actual noir-ish subplot that remains true to the expected girl-girl couplings. Sure, there's no dialogue for the first thirteen minutes, due to a game of seduction one-upmanship as they both try to seduce the pool man. Later in the film, in fact, there is a long stretch where there is nary a bare breast to be found, and instead Juli forces Cynthia and Morgana, bedecked in tiny plaid skirts and knee-high stockings, to submit to a series of mind games designed to see how far each will go to save their own rear end.

All is not completely serious in Sin Sister land, as Marsiglia enlists a prolonged and silly sequence where Cynthia and Morgana have to come up with, at gunpoint, synonyms for "breasts," "penis," etc., which is understated and damn funny, in an overtly juvenile way. Misty Mundae, as the Jack Daniels-swilling bad-ass of the pair, is in rare form here, though sadly nothing remotely resembling the brilliant gun-toting cover art ever occurs in the film. Despite the inspired marquee teaming of the two Mundaes, it is really Misty and Julian Wells who crank up the wacky, steamy goodness here, in spades. Chelsea has the mousy part down pat, and unfortunately her character can't help but take a backseat to the other two.

But for supreme leftfield weirdness, just wait until you see what prize Juli has lurking beneath the mysterious tin foil. Yikes!

Image Transfer Review: Holy crap, Seduction has taken the leap into anamorphic widescreen with Sin Sisters, and that if that isn't cause to rejoice for the future of Misty Mundae titles, then I don't know what is. Presented in what appears to be a 1.85:1 transfer, the presentation still looks like it was shot on video, but the mere presence of it being widescreen makes Tony Marsiglia's noir-ish tale look damn near legitimate at times. Colors are comparatively vivid (for video) and the deep golden hue of Julian Wells' secret hideaway looks almost stylish here. Fleshtones, and what is a Seduction title without ample flesh, look noticeably better than any of their earlier releases.

Not flawless, but certainly one of Seduction's better efforts.

Audio Transfer Review: Like most of the Seduction releases, Sin Sisters is presented with a serviceable 2.0 stereo mix. Some of Misty Mundae's dialogue distorts a bit when she shouts (which is often), but overall the presentation is adequate, and dialogue is clear and audible.

Extras Review: Misty Mundae fans should appreciate the woefully short Sin Sisters documentary included here, basically because it is, well, another twelve minutes of her. Other than that, there isn't much to learn here. Entitled Sin Sisters: The Exploitation Cinema of Misty and Chelsea Mundae (12m:05s), this segment features chatty comments from both Mundaes about their working on this current project, as well as clips from their early work in their Factory 2000 days. No real insights, but the footage from their earlier films makes the Seduction titles look like Scorsese.

In addition to a handful of Seduction trailers, also provided is a dandy six-page color booklet about Misty and Chelsea, that is naturally loaded with some equally dandy photos of the girls.

The disc is cut into a skimpy 10 chapters, and does feature any subtitles.

Extras Grade: B-


Final Comments

Die-hard Seduction buffs might find the lack of wall-to-wall softcore sex surprising, but this time around the plot falls headfirst into dark and lusty film noir territory. It is also one of the few Seduction titles (not counting the retro remakes) where I actually wondered where the story was going, and the absence of abundant coupling didn't concern me at all.

Two Mundaes for the price of one. Is it a beautiful world, or what?
