Response to Peary’s Review:
As Peary notes, this follow-up to director Jim and Artie Mitchell’s phenomenally successful adult classic Behind the Green Door is “confusing, then boring”. It’s impossible to tell what’s going on, given the constant chronological shifts and the complete change of actresses playing Eve. While watching the distasteful opening sequence, where “young” Eve is seduced/abused by an older man, I couldn’t help thinking I’d accidentally rented the wrong movie.

Redeeming Qualities and Moments:

  • Marilyn Chambers (always an enjoyable actress)

Must See?
No; this one is certainly not “must see” viewing.
