After directing the ultimate nudie horror movie, Orgy of the Dead, A.C. Stephens (real name: Stephen C. Apostolof) returned with this tepid look inside the lives of bored housewives. It’s not great, but it’s definitely better than a rerun of Desperate Housewives.
A psychiatrist sits behind a desk and tells the audience about his various patients (all of whom are sex starved housewives) who are all having extramarital affairs. (Something tells me this is a breach of confidentiality agreements, but oh well.) For the next hour, we’re treated to scenes of wives (most of whom have weird accents) seducing a TV repairman, a milkman, a carpet salesman, a bellhop, and even the
This low budget softcore skin flick is pretty inept (all of the moaning and heavy breathing is badly dubbed in and the psychiatrist often has to read from his script), but it still features enough nudity to hold your attention. You have to at least give Stephens credit for trying to spice things up by throwing in a few fetishes in there. (There’s lesbianism, light bondage and even a transvestite.)
Although Suburbia Confidential is thoroughly mediocre in about every way, it isn’t boring, shows plenty of skin and clocks in at just under an hour, so it’s hard to hate it completely. The success of this flick led Stephens to direct two other films in the “series; Motel Confidential and College Girls Confidential.
AKA: Suburban Confidential.
