I usually try not to read reviews of movies before I see them. While I don’t have a hard time discounting the thoughts of others and forming my own, I often find that things are more fun when you have no idea what to expect. If I do look at a review of the movie I’m watching, it’s usually when I’m about halfway through it. That was the case with Blindfold: Acts of Obsession, which I could easily see was going to be terrible within a few minutes of the opening credits.

Bored out of my mind and seeking something to lessen the blow that I was feeling from watching Shannen Doherty nude, I went to Blindfold’s IMDb page and checked out what external reviews were there for me. Anytime Stomp Tokyo is on the list, it’s always my first or second stop. Well, I read their review of the film, and they infected me with the Shannen virus. What’s the Shannen virus you ask? Well, in my infinite wisdom, I’m actually going to expressly tell you to leave this webpage and go to Stomp Tokyo so you can see for yourself. Don’t forget to come back and finish the review though.

Okay, you’re back. Or you’re not, in which case, why the hell am I talking to you?

Well, the Shannen virus made the last half of Blindfold more entertaining than the first half. That much is true. It did not, however, make Blindfold a good movie. I don’t think even Houdini would be capable of performing that impossible trick.

While Dr. Wendell Jennings (Nelson) has quite the beard going, he isn’t much of a psychiatrist. Or at least I assume most real psychiatrists would label him this way, as his advice to a Madeline Dalton (Doherty), a woman whose husband seems to have no interest in sexing her, is to engage in adventurous sex games with him. These certainly work, but things escalate when blindfolds and bondage come into play. Once this occurs, it’s only natural that acts of obsession follow. Or at least they’re supposed to, as Doherty could give a shit less, and the actor playing her husband is smartly kept off screen when he’s not required to run an ice cube down Doherty’s naked figure.

The A-plot of Blindfold at least has plentiful amounts of sex. The b-plot is a whole other story. Madeline’s sister Chris just so happens to be investigating a string of murders that involve blindfolds and handcuffs. And who else does she believe is involved but Dr. Judd Nelson. The actress playing Chris, Kristian Alfonso, is the kind of detective that you only get in erotic thrillers. Her attitude is one of a tomboy, but she’s tall, skinny, and well-endowed.

Blindfold: Acts of Obsession contains one or two vaguely erotic scenes that are sandwiched between a never-ending sea of bad directing, writing, editing, and acting. My God, the acting.
