SYNOPSIS: On the surface this might look like some silly sexploitation with a girl and an ape on an island but it's much more. Director Sole does a great job of making the entire film feel like one long erotic dream. Tanya works as a model / actress in low budget films and lives with her distant, abusive, boyfriend Lobo. She enters a dream state where her and Lobo live an idyllic life on a deserted island; riding horses bareback on the beach and screwing in their hut without a care in the world. Exploring the island she enters a series of caves near the beach and finds a large gorilla whom she befriends and calls "Blue" because of his striking eyes. At first, she's able to keep Blue a secret from her boyfriend but he eventually sees them together. One night Lobo tries to rape her but Blue turns up to help and gets shot with a crossbow. Tanya tends to his wounds and spends the day with him. Meanwhile, Lobo gets increasingly jealous and sets a trap for Blue, thereby setting up a showdown between man and beast for the love of a beauty. The film certainly succeeds in feeling like a dream / fantasy so you shouldn't take it too literally. The 21-year old Vanity is fully naked or topless through much of the film and she looks absolutely gorgeous. The ape suit was made by Rob Bottin (The Howling, The Thing) and Rick Baker (American Werewolf in London, Videodrome).
