Writer Paul Martin has scored a massive hit with his first novel and has retreated to a remote cottage in the heart of the English countryside to concentrate on his follow up. He's accompanied by his new secretary, Linda Hinstatt, a housekeeper, Mrs Aston and, occasionally, his lover Suzanne. Struck down by writer's block and struggling with his psychological inadequacies (he insists on wearing rubber gloves during sex), Martin begins to come apart at the seams. Linda, having refused his sexual advances but who's been quick to seduce Suzanne, turns out to have an agenda all her own - her husband, also a writer, committed suicide when Martin stole his manuscript and published it as his own. She's now out for revenge and, armed with a double-barrelled shotgun, looks likely to get it.
One of the strangest and most disturbing of British horror films (it was the only one to make the notorious ‘video nasties' list), Exposé veers alarmingly between the imaginative and the cliched, the fascinating and the banal, and features a dependable cast of exploitation veterans – softcore queen Fiona Richmond's performance isn't up to much, but Udo Keir and Linda Hayden are excellent. Recommended, but only in its full incut form.
Nothing is left to the imagination! In her first screen role - Fiona Richmond Britain's No 1 sex symbol.
