Hired to help launch a new hot rock group called “Tommy and the Penetrations,” Mark (Michael Pataki) finds himself dropped into the opulent drug-filled and orgiastic lifestyle of Hollywood. Settling into the historic Villa Elaine Apartment building (previous residents include Orson Welles and Frank Sinatra), Mark is suddenly haunted by visions of a horny group of people everywhere he goes. Are they some sort of mind-bending fantasy or reality?
This music-filled ’70s erotic oddity features genre film actor Michael Pataki (HALLOWEEN 4: THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS, DEAD AND BURIED, GRADUATION DAY) under the alias “Harry Wilcox,” and classic adult film starlet, Rene Bond. Presented from an authentic 35mm grindhouse release print for maximum sleaze. Ya dig?

The lovely Helena heads to the French coastline to meet up with Roy, a man she’s had affairs with in the past. She arrives at her destination and is told by the man at the door (Frank) that Roy is preoccupied with another woman upstairs and will be down to meet her soon. As Helena waits for Roy, Frank courts her… flirting, making conversation, and finally seducing her in his outdoor pool.
As the truth about Frank is revealed, Helena’s life is turned upside down (and the film’s plot takes a crazy, unexpected turn) when a gang of thugs breaks into the home. With no way to escape, Helena must give in to dominant sexual games and desires.
Alain Nauroy’s HELENA is a classic mix of eroticism and sexploitation from the ’70s that will titillate your senses until the film’s jaw-dropping and disturbing final act.
