Joe Davian is best known for his hour-long “roughies” that are short on plot and run-time, but long on sex and sleaze. APPOINTMENT WITH AGONY fits that bill precisely.
The film starts off with a guy playing guitar in prison and abruptly switches to a scene with Vanessa Del Rio in a car with three guys and a girl. Apparently, Vanessa was picked up hitch-hiking…big mistake on her part. The “gang” takes her back to their hide-out and the three men of the group swiftly take to making Ms. Del Rio “air-tight” in a pretty long and rough rape scene, complete with DP and jizz-bath action. When they’ve all “finished”, the gang begins to plan their next caper – but not before one of the group goes back for a little extra “fun” with Vanessa. Their next heist includes the abduction of a family (husband, wife, and two daughters) who are also brought back to the gang’s lair and abused. The daughters are made to give their dad a blow-job, and then both daughters and the wife are raped. The chick of the gang (I guess feeling a little left out), goes downstairs to have some fun with the still captive Del Rio. After all this “action” – the scene cuts back to the guy playing guitar in prison (who turns out to be one of the kidnappers), and then a short “resolution” scene where you see the kidnapped family back in their van discussing how they escaped…
Definitely threadbare storywise, but the rape and incest overtones are suitably sleazy for this era of XXX “roughie” films. A few of the sex scenes and girls in APPOINTMENT are pretty hot, and Del Rio is lookin’ quite good in this one – I’ll just say that she didn’t age well later on in life. Recommended for those that get a kick out of the rougher/sleazier material – all others should probably steer clear…7.5/10
