Gina (Lina Romay) and Tina (Christie Levin), your typical stripper-callgirl-private eyes - a job combination extremely rare in real life but fairly common in Jess Franco movies -, form the duo Red Silk tht is always after the big buck, even if that means smuggling valuable paintings for one of their clients (Carlos Braun), then selling him off to the police - thing is, the whole affair soon turns out to be more than it had seemed as they get into a kidnapping/blackmailing/murder case, and the police is suddenly on their tail, especially one rogue cop who tries to blackmail them ("but he's so handsome"). However, somehow the girls manage to play both sides against each other, make sure that Kalman (Paul Lapidus), the main baddie of the picture, gets his just desserts, free his hostage, make off with the money and ... drive their car over the next cliff - but then again, maybe the ending was a lie, and come to think of it, maybe the whole movie was a lie.


In a way, Red Silk is typical Jess Franco-fare, reminiscent of his Red Lips-films of the late 1960's: A very cheesy crime plot told entirely tongue-in-cheek and revolving around two gorgeous women who get naked occasionally - in Red Silk it's a lot actually, though Lina Romay is by far not as gorgeous anymore as she used to be.

Unfortunately the formula doesn't work as well anymore as it used to, mainly because Red Silk was shot on a shoestring, too little money for even this kind of movie, and too little effort was put into things as diverse as proper sound, comic pacing or even camera set-up and editing. The result is an unfortunately failed attempt to make a really funny and sexy genre parody. Still, one has to give Jess Franco credit for trying, and for still going his way undeterred.
