Asia Noir 6: Evil Sex Trap (David Aaron Clark, 2008)
[note: review originally published 4Sep2010]
I can be forgiven, I hope, for seeing the title of this flick and thinking it was some sort of extension or parody of the Evil Dead Trap series of Asian horror films. I was about as wrong as you can be, but you understand my confusion, surely. Evil Sex Trap is actually a porn flick, and not a very good one to boot, but I do have to give Clark some credit for at least attempting something rare in porn these days—putting a plot into it.
Trent (Marcus J. Spencer, credited here, as usual, as Mr. Marcus), an LAPD detective, wakes up with no memory of who or where he is, with only his badge and gun letting him know anything about his background. He gets a call on his cell phone from a mysterious Asian woman, directing him to a warehouse leading to an underground complex housing an import-export business. From there, we pretty much put the plot on hold until the end of the movie for the usual series of extended sex scenes.
As far as porn goes, it’s not awful; everyone involved is attractive, and Clark isn’t as obsessed with close-ups and come shots as your usual porn director. I wish he’d studied seventies porn a bit more, however, and learned how to strike a better balance between plot and sex. This could have been really good, but ended up more of the same. * ½
Unfortunately, pornhounds, i couldn’t find you a trailer.
