Rating (out of 5):
     I never knew how much of a passion I had for horror until this month.  I had been obsessed with horror for years but I never knew just how much I loved it.  Taking this month to watch anything not horror has really put in perspective how much I love the genre and how much of my everyday life is consumed by it.  I recently decided to check out one of the Drive-In Collections released from Vinegar Syndrome.  This set is a triple feature.  I watched the first two films, Marsha: The Erotic Housewife and For Single Swingers Only, both of which was not that great but Marsha was enjoyable for the most part.  I was curious about checking this one out when I saw it starred Marsha and featured someone in a goathead mask.  This made me think that the film had a Satanic scene and this really intrigued me.  After watching For Single Swingers Only I had to finish out the triple feature.  
     The film follows Chris (Marsha) who is a sex expert who uses her profession to travel the world and experience the sins of the flesh.  She stumbles upon a man and starts telling him of all her sexual exploits.  The first involving a beautiful blonde as they explore every inch of their bodies before revealing that she is her sister.  She then goes on about the time she came across a sex cult and was forced to have every member have their way with her and finally when she was in the wild and a man raped her at knife point.

     Marsha: The Erotic Housewife was a slightly enjoyable flick while For Single Swingers Only was far from enjoyable.  However, Her Odd Tastes, which was added to the release as a bonus film, was the best out of the set.  The film just did not fit in well with the other two and that may be why this one stands out.  The acting in this one is great.  Once again we get a great performance from the attractive Marsha Jordan.  She is as talented as she is beautiful.  I could honestly watch her on screen all day.  The remainder of the cast does a great job as well but they are only on screen for a amount of time.  The story for this one is very interesting and all over the place.  The story definitely has that 'what the fuck' factor going with the incest scene, the cult gang rape, and then the violent knife rape scene.  These kept the viewer on their toes and really broke up the boring softcore sex scenes.  Finally, this one is another one with no real kills.  There is actually a death but it is a self-defense kill that is not that entertaining or gory.  Overall, Her Odd Tastes is a pretty entertaining film starring the beautiful Marsha Jordan that has one hell of a story.  This film alone is worth the price so check it out.
