Synopsis by Mark Deming
A model with dreams of the big time sinks into the depth of degradation in this rough-edged sexploitation opus. Rita (Doris Porro) is an attractive woman who has grown tired of working menial jobs and has decided to try her luck as a professional model. It doesn't take long for Rita to land lucrative assignments, but she also learns that the life of photographers and models is a decadent and dangerous one, and that drugs and casual sex are simply part of a typical assignment. A party after one photo shoot with fellow models Roberta (Ruth Colon) and Sandy (Dolores) quickly turns into an orgy fueled by marijuana and amphetamines, but when sex and drugs are no longer enough to give the participants their kicks, Sandy takes the action into a dangerous new direction. Shot silent with voice-over narration, In Hot Blood was directed by Joel Landwehr (aka Leo J. Rhewdnal), who also made the similarly eccentric sexploitation opus Fluctuations.
