When b-movie maven Charles Band closed up shop with his Full Moon entertainment label, many a softcore fan wept as included with that fold was good ol' Surrender Cinema. A production house more or less devoted to thinly-plotted erotica that featured a jaw-dropping number of actresses, Surrender Cinema brought us such classics as Femalien (and its sequel), Lolida 2000 and Virtual Encounters (and its sequel.) Purportedly helmed by a woman named Cybil Richards, these flicks are completely interchangeable so interchangeable that Surrender cinema once made a compilation video with scenes from all of the different movies cut together. Well, there's less pretense with that approach anyhow.
Virtual Encounters is one of the crowning jewels in the fallen Surrender Cinema empire. The threadbare story follows cold-fish Amy (Elizabeth Kaitan) as she gets in touch with her inner "bad girl" by partaking in a new virtual reality scheme that plays all manner of sexual scenarios for participants. Soon she's witnessing jungle-sex, caveman sex, romantic candlelight boot-knocking, bondage clad lesbians and, in the movie's best scene, Jacqueline Lovell and Tricia Yen in an Oriental setting complete with oils and nipple rings.
Softcore fans will embrace the various shenanigans, but those not into sex without context will want to look elsewhere. Also stars many porn actresses including Taylor St. Claire, Brittany Andrews, Jill Kelly, Cathleen Raymond, Sara Bellomo and Lori Morrissey.
