    The Movies:

    Vinegar Syndrome pairs up two of director Damon Christian’s eighties adult features in this latest in their Peekarama line of vintage dirty movie collections.

    Eat At The Blue Fox:

    In the first film we head to Mexico where we meet a nightclub owner named Rick (Ron Jeremy). He runs a bar called The Blue Fox where a pianist named Jose (Lazaro Valdez) performs and plenty of lovely ladies (Kitten Natividad, Pamela Mann, Desiree Lane) entertaining guests of all shapes and sizes. Things are going alright for Rick until a new highway starts diverting traffic away from the joint and his relationship with an obese sheriff named Wade (Jerry Abrams) goes south. See, Wade had been turning a blind eye to certain activity ni exchange for a cut.

    Ron’s passport is confiscated, the girls are locked up and Rick’s left with nothing to do but fall inside a bottle and feel sorry for himself. Then he meets a girl named Angie (Kimberly Carson). She’s in a hot spot with the law too.

    “Where Big Burritos And Hot Tacos Come Together!”

    Briskly paced and often very funny, Eat At The Blue Fox is a kick. The sex is frequent, steamy, nicely shot and performed with enthusiasm – even Ron is in fine form here and clearly having a good time in the scenes he shares with the female talent. Speaking of which, there’s a pretty solid line up here indeed. Along with Kitten Natividad, Pamela Mann and the stunning Desiree Lane we’re treated to some great material with the lovely Ms. Kimberly Carson. As far as the guys? Along with Ron we get a scene with Herschel Savage and hey, look out for Blake Palmer in a scene where he goes at it with Mann.

    Jeremy handles himself well as the emcee on stage in the club, rattling off jokes like an experienced standup comedian. The film is nicely shot, the lighting is good and the story is engaging. The score even stands out. Really, his one does pretty much everything right. The humor is appropriately raunchy but entirely effective and there’s a lot of dirty fun to be had here.

    Titillations:

    The second film is basically a reworking of the classic Cinderella story, albeit reworked into a film noir inspired comedic thriller format that, of course, includes lots of sex. In our story, Felix Fitswilly (Roy Simpson) has gone through one private dick after another in his quest to match a golden bra to the appropriate breasts, in hopes that those breasts will be attached to the girl of his dreams. Felix is getting on in years and, as such, is running out of time.

    In what is basically a last ditch effort, he hires Brenda Weeks (Angelique Pettyjohn) to give it a shot. She brings on two P.I.’s - Spado Zappo (Eric Edwards) and Pigeon Johnson (Randy West) – to try and crack the case, unaware that her husband, Rooster (Mike Horner), is going at it with the foxy new neighbor who has moved in next door. As luck would have it, the bra just might fit the appropriately stacked Jerri (Natividad again), a well to do lady whose drink is spiked by her chauffeur and raped while Pigeon watches. Just as the dirty driver is about to use the back door, Pigeon puts a stop to it. From there, things get complicated and the plot summersaults around a bit, working in some backstabbings and some setups and of course, lots of sex.

    Like the first feature, this is entertaining and quick with its pacing. The plot gets messy towards the end and the big finish doesn’t prove as strong as the first half of the picture but there’s lots of glossy cinematography to admire alongside nice lighting and some solid production values. The cast are also really good here. Edwards and West have good comedic timing and both Angelique Pettyjohn and Kitten Natividad is great here too. On top of that we get a fun supporting part from Gina Gianetti as a mysterious woman named Amanda.

    The first feature is the better of the two but Titillation makes for a nice follow up. These two pictures work well together.

    Video/Audio/Extras:

    Both movies are presented anamorphic widescreen in standard definition transfer taken from new 2k scans of “35mm pre-print elements.” Each film, framed at 1.78.1 anamorphic widescreen, looks very good even if there is some very minor print damage here and there. Great colors, good depth and texture, strong black levels – these look really good and show about as much detail as you could realistically hope for in standard definition.

    Both films get the English language Dolby Digital Mono treatment. Clarity is just fine in each film with those theme songs sounding nice and clear. Balance is fine in each picture and there are no problems with any hiss or distortion. Dialogue is clean, crisp and clear. There are no alternate language options or subtitles provided.

    Static menus and chapter selection are provided for each film, and a trailer is provided for Eat At The Blue Fox.

    The Final Word:

    Vinegar Syndrome’s DVD release of Eat At The Blue Fox/Titillation is a fun watch, offering up the requisite amount of sex but also some solid laughs, good production values and decent storylines. The presentation here is up to Vinegar Syndrome’s typical level of quality. Recommended.
