Synopsis: Bored with their wives, two friends decide one evening too swap wives in the middle of the night while they are all on getaway together. And their plan would have gone off without a hitch if one of them did not get jealous, when his wife raved about their love making the night before. This then leads to their wives finding out about the switch and from their wives follow them to swingers’ club to exact their revenge.
When it comes to adult cinema made during the 1980’s and beyond, one should never be surprised when any given film is lacking when it comes to its narrative. And this is most definitely the case with Unveiled, a film that shine brightest during its sex scenes and barley registers a pulse during its moments of exposition.
And when it comes to this film’s eight sex scenes. The most memorable moments include a scene where one of husbands is having an affair with his secretary and his wife calls. And the film’s finale where the two wives in disguise find their husbands and teach them a lesson they will not soon forget. Of course another standout moment when it comes to sex scenes would have been the scenes where the two husbands swap their wives. Their trickery is never fully shown and only alluded too.
From a performance stand point the cast are best summed up as adequate in their respective roles. With the only performance that leaves any lasting impression being Mike Horner in the role of one the cheating husbands. Other notable cast members include Erica Boyer (Body Girls) and Taija Rae (Driller).
Vinegar Syndrome presents Unveiled in an anamorphic widescreen that preserves the film’s intended aspect ratio. The transfer for this release was scanned and restored in 2k from the 35mm camera negative. Colors and flesh tones look accurate, details look crisp and black levels fare well throughout. Also there are issues with compression or edge enhancement.
This release comes with one audio option, a Dolby Digital mono mix in English. Dialog always comes through clearly and everything sounds balanced.
Extras for this release include, a trailer for the film (3 minutes 15 seconds) and an interview with actor Mike Horner (14 minute 19 seconds).
Topics discussed in the interview include, how he got cast in the early days of his career, Suze Randall and their various collaborations and still photo shoots verse making films. Other topics include various actresses & actors he worked with and other onset memories.
Overall Unveiled gets a solid release from Vinegar Syndrome.
