Shaun Costello was one of the most prolific erotic filmmakers of the 1970s and early 80s. Presented here are two of his later works which gleefully explore the seedy underbelly of New York City during its sleazy heyday.
AFTERNOON DELIGHTS: A group of friends have gathered for their regular poker night, but instead of dealing stud they are presented with a new game from their host Eric Edwards. A game where they try to decide who has the nastiest story about an ex-wife. One of Costello’s most memorable vignette films, AFTERNOON DELIGHTS stars Vanessa Del Rio, Veronica Hart, Serena, Samantha Fox, Eric Edwards and many more.
SLAVE OF PLEASURE: Private detective, Dan McCord (Roger Caine) has been hired by Richard Anselm (Shaun Costello) to find his beautiful wife, Eileen. As McCord digs into the case, he discovers that Eileen might have been kidnapped by white slavers. But as he uncovers more and more clues, suspicion soon starts to fall on Richard’s mistress, Barbara (C.J. Laing)…
