Dr. Snuggles and friends return for episode 46 of your guide to the truly astonishing world of softcore films, and the world’s number one podcast on that subject!
This week, Anthony from fantastic looking erotic thriller documentary We Kill for Love is our special guest once again, and we check out 1993’s erotic revenge thriller masterpiece, Scorned - starring and directed by the legendary Andrew Stevens. Fun fact: Scorned is the only DTV erotic thriller available on blu-ray at this time. Granted, it’s only available as a very limited release (2 covers with 250 copies each), and only in Germany, but it looks stunning, and as a bonus comes with a 20 page booklet which is entirely in German (so could honestly say anything). The plot is bananas - wife of suicided man tries to take revenge on the guy who got a promotion ahead of him by seducing him, his son and wife - but it’s enormous fun, and stars iconic queen of ‘90s softcore Shannon Tweed! How have we made it 46 episodes without doing either an Andrew Stevens or Shannon Tweed movie?!
Naturally, instead of talking about the careers of either of those two legends, we talk about the life and times of its writer, Barry Avrich. This was Avrich’s one dip into the erotic thriller genre, but he’s a big name in the world of Canadian advertising, and also a big name in the world of biographical documentaries (particularly Canadian-focused ones). He also wrote a 400 page autobiography, although weirdly he doesn’t mention Scorned once in it.
