Talk about obscure! This adult flick-indeed, calling this a “film” would be stretching the truth by a country mile-from the early seventies is rumored to have been shot by noted auteur Gerard Damiano, shortly before directing his breakout Deep Throat picture which ushered in the era of “porno chic” here in America.

This sentiment is difficult to believe, however, given the bare bones and basic skin flick set on display here with Evil Ways of Love. An absurd dubbed narrative details the goings-on of a man, recently split from his fiancee, who is cutting a swath of sex on his house boat with a number of willing participants. And…that’s about it. Gerard Damiano was noted for the visual and conceptual style which was featured on his later films, such as The Devil In Miss Jones, but there’s absolutely none of that here, with scene after scene following up the dry narration, with no dialog whatsoever from the performers on screen.

This is basically fodder for the peep show booths of Times Square; a moderately intriguing curiosity thanks to its obscurity, but otherwise recommended only for the prurient interest of 70s smut, or for those who simply have to check out everything Gerard Damiano may or may not have put his directorial hands on before hitting his creative stride.

The DVD:

Impulse Pictures presents Evil Ways of Love in a damaged but watchable full frame print. Colors are kind of dreary but this is probably as best as this short flick will ever look on home video. What little audio there is mixed well enough, while extras include only a sneak peek of Impulse’s Peep Show Collection of DVDs, making this a bare bones disc, not worth the $24.95 asking price.
