.Udo Kier stars as an acclaimed author who hires a typist (Linda Hayden) to assist recording his free flowing creative process, but eventually deadly ulterior motives driving the help's dedication become apparent. Despite feeling very European with lots of (dubbed) Kier, flesh from Hayden and Brit sexbomb Fiona Richmond, and bright blood splatterings; it's all too askew to make much impact. The characters and their disembodied reality almost feels like a close proximity to the way real individuals would react in the same scenario. It's a tough sensation to describe but it's hard to believe every character could possess such awkward decision making.
The worst aspect being the climatic twist, making you more pissed than surprised, that betrays a payoff that could have put a satisfying cap on this little revenge flick. Ultimately, Exposé is popcorn fluff with a reputation that's nastier than anything contained within. Aside from some optical fogging of genitalia, this Japanese VHS is fully uncut and looks better than other tape presentations (if the drab clips on YouTube are any indication). I'm glad I saw this sexploitation roughie in a tape trade rather than actually buying Severin's upcoming Blu-ray/DVD combo. Disappointment would have ensued.
