It isn’t often we get to feature a Canadian b-movie from the 1970’s here on the site, but thanks to Trembles, that’s exactly what’s on tap in this week’s Motion Picture Purgatory. Feast your eyes on Sexcula, a 1974 slice of Canuxploitation from director John Holbrook.
The film stars Debbie Collins as Countess Sexcula and Jamie Orlando as Dr. Fallatingstein. John Alexander, Tim Lowery, Bud Coal, and Marie McLeod co-star. There’s not much info available on the film so we’ll let Canuxploitation.com give a brief overview: Shot in Vancouver by one-time producer Clarence Neufeld and a cast of unknown exhibitionists, the adult monster spoof Sexcula is not only an almost lost piece of undeniably sleazy Canadiana, it’s also one of earliest monster movies made north of the border, a spoofy take-off on the Universal classic horror films.
The film’s story unfurls like this: When a woman (Debbie Collins) arrives at a spooky old mansion owned by her ancestors, she and her boyfriend (David F. Hurry) find a dusty old diary that discusses the history of the house during the 18th century. As they enjoy a picnic on the mansion grounds, they read aloud from the diary about how Dr. Fallatingstein (Jamie Orlando) created a male monster in her basement lab named Frank (John Alexander), to help satisfy her sexual needs. But something goes wrong with her experiment—not only is Frank impotent, but he seems generally uninterested in pleasing his mistress. It seems the only one getting any action around the old dungeon is hunchback assistant Orgie (Tim Lowery), who keeps sneaking into the lab to have a go at a nude female pleasure robot (Marie McLeod) strapped to one of the slabs.
