Psychiatrist Dr Jackie Stevenson (Julian Wells) has developed a serum called Euphoria that is supposed to split the female personality into saint and whore and this way give females everywhere a fulfilled life, and she tries it on one of her patients, depressive Martine (Misty Mundae). Unfortunately though she overdoses, leaving Martine a mad and sex-starved idiot - which happens only after Martine has told her she loves her and has licked her to orgasm, both things the buttoned up doctor has craved for for a long time.

So Doc Jackie tries Euphoria on herself, but cuts the dosis in half - and all of a sudden she turns into a sexy and sex-craving bombshell called Heidi. Soon enough, she roams the city and eventually picks up an attractive young streetwalker, Dawn (Misty Mundae again), and the two have amazing sex that leaves both totally satisfied. Dawn, it seems, has fallen in love with Heidi, and Heidi/Jackie loves her back because she reminds her of Martine, whom she has fallen in love with in a way.

Eventually, Dawn decides to visit a psychiatrist - and chooses Doc Jackie, not knowing that she is indeed Heidi, the very subject Dawn wants to talk about. Anyways, their meeting turns into an hour of lesbian sex, at the end of which Jackie has turned into Heidi once more. Jackie invites Dawn to stay with her, but only after they, together with her maid Paula (Ruby LaRocca) have taken care of her macho hubby. So the three women invite hubby to an orgy, and hubby, not noticing Heidi is really his borderline frigid wife, agrees, and he enjoys the attention of the three gorgeous naked women ... until he is injected with an overdose of Euphoria and goes quite mad. Then though Dawn and maid Paula turn on Heidi as well, Dawn because she wants to revenge Martine (who might be another incarnation of herself or her sister or something) and Paula because she is a natural submissive (or so it seems). So the two of them overdose Heidi on Euphoria as well, and soon enough, she has gone as mad as her hubby ...

Later though the story is given another spin: Maybe Dawn has never existed, and maybe there was no such thing as Euphoria, and maybe Doc Jackie has just gone mad because she was responsible for the death of a patient, Martine, and maybe it was all a clever ploy by Paula, who has inherited the Doc's house and fortune and who is by far not as submissive as she seems to be.

But why then is the woman (Andrea Davis) who is interviewing Paula and who was injected with Euphoria earlier on suddenly getting all horny, as if Euphoria was just kicking in ?

 

Let me note up front that despite Seduction Cinema's long history of erotic spoofs of pretty much everything, this is not a parody of any sort but a serious, allegoric film, which - despite its loads and loads of sex and nudity - even seems to have arthouse cinema aspirations ... and maybe director Tony Marsiglia just aims a tad too high, I mean on one hand he is certainly a talented director, who knows quite a bit about aesthetics and interesting camera set-ups and who is certainly influenced more by David Lynch than by any sexfilmmaker there is, on the other hand though, Dr. Jekyll and Mistress Hyde is just a bit too pretentious for its own good, tries to infuse a bit too much symbolism into its story and some scenes just could have done with a bit more of spontaneity, especially considering the (self-consciously) trashy script.

This all still doesn't make Dr. Jekyll and Mistress Hyde a bad movie, though, after all it's beautifully filmed, the female actresses are all good looking and do get naked, and the score by Don Mike, a mix of jazz, electronica and 60's style pop with the occasional pseudo classic piece thrown in, is actually quite amazing (and not only for a film of this kind). All this makes the film totally watchable and even enjoyable, it just would have been better if it was a little less on the brainheavy side ...
