Body Chemistry 2
Release Date: 1992
Genre: Thriller
Director(s): Adam Simon (Carnosaur, Brain Dead)
Writer(s): Jackson Barr (Body Chemistry) & Christopher Wooden
Starring: Gregory Harrison, Lisa Pescia and Morton Downey Jr.

The first Body Chemistry film was, as I put it in my review, “Fatal Attraction with less talented actors.” It was a blatant, unapologetic knockoff that lacked the energy needed to even be half the movie its source material was. The second in the series is enormously underappreciated, as it has simply fallen into erotic thriller obscurity since its release.

After knocking off Tom Redding in the first movie, Dr. Claire Archer (thankfully stilled played by psycho bitch extraordinaire Pescia) has managed to score a gig hosting a radio show where she gives advice to jaded lovers and the like. Archer is not the most forward-thinking psychologist in the world. This is demonstrated in a scene where she tells an abused woman that her husband only beats her to demonstrate his love for her. This doesn’t set well with her phone answerer Brenda, who just so happens to be dating Dan “Danimal” Pearson (Harrison), a man that Archer that has recently began to give some private therapy too. Dan is a former LAPD officer who now works as an auto mechanic after his violent streak got him kicked off the force. Claire believes that the nearly-suicidal Dan is sexually repressed, and starts him on therapy that involves heavy doses of S&M and verbal abuse. As you’d expect, this eventually begins to spiral out of control, at which point Claire Archer finds a way to come out on top.

Body Chemistry 2 is best described by an IMDb reviewer; trashy. And I’ll take on ‘deliciously,’ making this a deliciously trashy flick. Claire Archer, as played by Lisa Pescia, is just an evil character that kept my attention regardless of what she was doing. And when she is sexually assaulting an over the top Morton Downey Jr. while he is on the air, she’s especially great.

While I’ve yet to see Body Chemistry 4, I’m probably in the clear when I say that Body Chemistry 2 is the only quality film in the series. Jim Wynorski and Andrew Stevens would soon come in to handle directing / producing duties on the next two. Not only did they remove Pescia from the role in favor of actresses who had no problem frequently removing their clothes, but they also severely downsized her role in the third film in favor of parading Andrew Stevens and Morgan Fairchild. Because as we all know, the audience for softcore films really, really, really wants those two.

DVD: Barebones.
