Janine Reynaud and the gorgeous Rosanna Yanni stars as two sexy undercover agents in this very, very bizarre effort from director Jess Franco, who also has a small role in the film.
The plot, such as it is revolves around "The Red Lips" two female spies who are searching for missing models and actresses. There is a lot of comedic action thrown into the plot, and it does help male the movie more palatable.
It seems that a mad artist named Thriller (Adrian Hoven) and his werewolf-like assistant Morpho (Michael Lemoine) have been kidnapping the women and using them as basis for kinky paintings and encasing their bodies in clay.
This film is one of the most bizarre Franco films I have ever seen, and that is saying something. The garish colors and lighting are puyre 60's pulp and I remember those times.
Reynaud and Yanni work well off of each other and I never miss anything with Yanni. If you're looking for very light entertainment then this is a film I could recommend. The print from Blue Underground is beautiful, but I have to admit that the dubbing on this film, which I believe was done in Germany stinks. I wish I could see the original Spanish version of this movie.
This is included in a two disc set along with "Kiss Me Monster" which is another "Red Lips" film. Enjoy. There is also a 15 minute interview with the late Jess Franco about the film and his dislike of the original titles which was "Sadisterotica".
