"Illicit Dreams" review

Illicit Dreams (1995)

Directed by Andrew Stevens
Writing credits Karen Kelly

Andrew Stevens .... Nick Richardson
Shannon Tweed .... Moira Davis
Joseph Cortese .... Daniel Davis
Michelle Johnson .... Melinda Ryan

I bought this video for two bucks. I saw UNRATED on the back of the video box and decided to give it a shot. Well, it's official. I'm not a Shannon Tweed fan. She has a nice, muscular body but she just doesn't do it for me. Most of her movies try to be some sort of thriller with some sex on the side. The sex scenes should be the main course! "Illicit Dreams" has her finding the love of her life in her dreams. So who does she dream about night after night? Who is the only man for her who burns with a love that can transcend all space and time? Yeah, it's Andrew Stevens. This is a dream lover? Tweed has some strange fantasies.

So Tweed spends her illicit dream filled nights rolling around with Andrew Stevens. Anybody is better than her piggish, brute of a husband. Soon Tweed will realize that Stevens is the only man for her. She must get away. She must break free. After many dream sex scenes with Stevens, Tweed finally makes contact with him through their psychic link. Their love burns brighter than a thousand stars that have just gone supernova. Only this love will save her from her psychotic husband. If only I cared…

"Illicit Dreams" is a pretty standard sex thriller. Shannon Tweed is a B-movie sex queen but I just can't get into her flicks. There's always too much thriller and not enough sex. If you're not too demanding, you might find something to like here. If you just want to see Tweed naked, you've definitely come to the right place.

SCORE: 1.5 out of 4 Tweeds dreaming illicitly
