Arguably the first bona fide cult screen siren of the DVD age, Misty Mundae is not the conventional B-movie babe of yore. She isn’t a surgically enhanced blonde bimbo with an ass you could bounce quarters off of. I find her reminiscent of Swedish sex starlet Marie Liljedahl, only with a retro ‘hippy chick’ sensibility… Just because she has the face of an angel doesn’t mean she wouldn’t twist up a killer ‘J’. Fans of this sexy, talented actress will certainly want to see her in this latest E.I./Seduction Cinema release (eccentric-cinema.com)

Soft-core cutie Misty Mundae (Lord of the G-Strings, Mummy Raider, The Girl Who Shagged Me) stars as “Misty,” an innocent teenage girl who undergoes her sexual coming of age at the hands of her older, wiser Aunt Inga (Flesh for Olivia, Who Wants to Be an Erotic Billionaire?). This plot, such as it is, provides Misty with opportunities galore to shed her innocence through voyeurism, tentative sexual experimentation, and finally a full-blown lesbian love scene with her aunt. (In case you find incest distasteful, a throwaway line at the end of the movie reveals that Inga is just Misty’s mother’s close friend, not a biological aunt.)

All of this is handled with much more sensitivity and style than is customary in movies of this kind. The plot and dialogue are predictably weak, but Misty’s sexual awakening and new-found pleasures come across as almost sweet. This is due in large part to Ms. Mundae’s surprising on-screen vulnerability; she comes across as believably shy and tentative. Director Michael Raso (Girl Seduction, Inside Misty Mundae) stated he was tired of the usual approach to eroticism in films of this kind and wanted a new (perhaps kinder and gentler?) approach that incorporated sex scenes as an essential part of a real story. Raso was inspired by the works of skin flick legend Joe Sarno from the 1960s and 1970s, such as Inga. His goal was to attempt to recapture the innocence and wonder of the “first time” and allow viewers to experience it through the eyes of Misty. Whether the attempt succeeds or fails will be largely a matter of personal taste, but he does manage to make the sex scenes (even hot, steamy, lesbians gettin’ it on) warmer and less mechanical than is typically the case.
