Stormswept (1995) from Tuna

Stormswept (1995) doesn't know if it wants to be a nudie flick, a soft-core or a horror slasher, but it definitely tries to be really bad film making, and almost succeeds at that.
Unfortunately, it is not bad enough to ever become a cult classic. Despite lots of visible boom mikes, continuity errors and really bad acting, it doesn't ever reach the lofty heights of an Ed Wood film.


It is unusual for a pseudo-softcore erotica in that there is no pubic exposure. Several women bare their breasts often.
The plot, if you can call it that, involves three actresses, a director, a random male crew member, a female real estate agent, and an unexplained couple all trapped inside an anti-bellum mansion by a heavy rain. The unexplained couple have been living there in the basement, the real estate agent attended a party at the place in her youth and witnessed a murder, Two of the actresses have rented the place for a vacation, and everyone else kind of hung around hoping to get laid and got caught by the storm.

DVD info from Amazon.

The transfer is dark, out of focus, and grainy (roughly VHS quality), and there are no extra features of note

We have lots of boobs, a few buns (male and female) hetero sex, lesbian sex, and a spontaneous female orgasm under hypnosis. 20 IMDB readers have it at 5.2/10. It looks like 6 of the cast and crew voted to get it that high. The three people who have commented say:

1) Unwatchable
2) This movie doesn't know if it wants to be a psycho slasher thing, or a ghost story, or a soft core party, and ends up being none of them.
3) A waste of space at the rental store. It would have to get better to be bad.

I give this a solid 0 stars.

The Critics Vote

  • no reviews

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: 5.2 out of 10. As noted above, the correct score is about 3.5, but the average has been skewed by the fact that a very small number of votes obviously includes five or six people who worked on the film.

A more accurate stat: Men aged 30-44 scored it 1.9!!! And that high probably only because of the breasts.
