Anita (Review)


Anita (1973)

Directed by Torgny Wickman

As I perusing various horror websites, I stumbled upon the Playground Movie Reviews. There, they had a review of Anita which I read like a goofy schoolboy.

A movie about a 17 year old nymphomaniac!

This I gotta see.

I gotta admit, it was a nice change of pace from watching the constant zombies and cannibal redneck slaughter I've been watching over the last few weeks.

I even decided to have Hollywood rape my childhood by going and seeing Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. So bless all that is Swedish erotica!


Anita, at 17 yrs old is a nympho. She picks up dudes all over her small town. She's got an uppity, goodt two shoes sister, her parents hate her and she has no friends. But she befriends a psych student played by a young Stellan Skarsgard, who is willing to help her break her sex addiction, by giving her the one thing that can cure orgasm.

Fuck yeah!


Umm. Yeah this is vintage grindhouse, predecessor to all that is Skinemax. Take your pick from other 70s erotica. Even the American stuff.


Christina Lindberg is like naked for 85% of the movie.

She gets down and dirty with a variety of johns. There reaction is always priceless.

"You're want to do what??......for free????....OK!!!"

We typically do not have nudity here at but I mean this review definitely needed visuals. So as you can see to the right, this is the super hotness of Christina Lindberg.

Rewind the Insanity

Christina Lindberg is hot. Did I mention that? And as this is just 70s skinemax, it's got that grindhouse, scratchy film, abrupt cuts and fading audio feel to it that makes you feel like your at a sticky Times Square theatre. What more can I say? I mean she's doing every guy in town in like 20 scenes. It's sleazy classic that you can't turn your eyes away from.

So what do we get in the moments where she isn't blowing or fucking some dude.

See below!

The Jaded Viewer's Final Prognosis

Watch it. Why not? Yeah you can view hardcore porn, but sleazy 70's erotica is done so awesome here, you may even watch for the plot (I didn't). Lindberg's protrayal of a revenge chick from Thriller: A Cruel Picture was the inspirtation for Daryl Hannah's character in Kill Bill.

But here it's all out full frontal swedish B grade erotica.

Lindberg is so cute in that girl next door sorta way, when she pouts as she eats breakfast, you want her to do something dirty and naughty....and then she does in the next scene!

In the end, she does get cured by her new "boyfriend" but at that point, you're looking for tissues. [Wink Wink].

Now that's worth the price of the download.
