Synopsis: A fashion photographer obsessed with capturing on film the essence of Sodom and Gomorrah frantically searches for his muse.

All the Sins of Sodom was written and directed by Joseph W. Sarno who’s other notable films include, Sin in the Suburbs, Flesh and Lace, Inga, Vampire Ecstasy and Abigail Lesley Is Back in Town.

This film features a solid premise, a young woman named Joyce who initial introduction presents her as someone with virtue. Then as the well-constructed narrative evolves her devious side emerges as she pits characters against each other. And though there is one character who warns the photographer who becomes obsession with her that she is toxic. He refuses to listen to her since Joyce is the essence of what he has been looking for artistically.

From a production stand point, there no areas where this film is lacking and in most instances this film far exceeds expectations. The visuals are full of atmosphere and they reinforce the mood the film. The soft-core sex scenes are well executed and they more than deliver in regards to eroticism. The performances the entire cast are all very good in their respective roles. With this film’s standout performance being Sue Akers (Return of the Secret Society, Monique, My Love) in the role of Joyce. She delivers an utterly convincing performance that blurs that fine line between good and evil.

The BluRay:

All the Sins of Sodom comes on a 25 GB single layer (22.4 GB) BluRay. The film is presented in a 1080 progressive widescreen. For this release a brand new 2k transfer has been created from the film’s 35mm original camera negative. The source used for this transfer is in excellent shape. The image looks sharp, contrast and black levels remain solid throughout. Grain looks natural and there are no issues with DNR or compression.

This release comes with one audio option, a DTS-HD mono mix in English and included with this release are removable English SDH subtitles. The audio is in great shape. Dialog is always clear and everything sounds balanced. This is a dialog heavy film driven by mood and this audio mix does a superb job with the more ambient aspects of the soundtrack.

Extras for this release are limited to reversible cover art. There is just a menu with two options, play the film or chapter selection.

Also, included with this release is a DVD that has the same content included on the Blu-Ray included as part of this combo release.

Overall All the Sins of Sodom gets a solid audio / video presentation from Vinegar Syndrome, highly recommended.
