Wild Eye Releasing's: Sexina (2007)

Sexina (2007)

Starring: Lauren D’Avella, Adam West, Annie Golden, Luis Jose Lopez, Allyn Rachel, Kellie Fernald

My Review and Thoughts:

Anything with the title Sex and starring Adam West should inform you what you’re getting into. This is a silly, comical, over the top modern B-movie instant classic. This has all the trademarks of a truly memorable Drive-In, late night, corny, spectacular romp of B-grade Heaven. 

All one has to do is listen to the plot. A teen pop star named Sexina also just happens to be a private Detective that fights, that’s right, evil inside the music world. Now let’s add in a missing scientist that is being held against his will and made to create a Robot Boy Band, yes you read that right, it’s not a typo. The enemy is The Boss of Glitz records. If that don’t turn you on to this, then nothing will, did I mention Batman is in this, the one and only Adam West.

If Roger Corman and Britney Spears had a love child it would be Sexina.

Lauren D’Avella stars as your main character Sexina. This is only her second film, and her first starring role. She captures the silliness of the film. She is able to hold the attention of the viewer with the over the top reality that is the script. Don’t go into to this movie wanting an Oscar Worthy film, go into this with your brains turned off, and ready to have fun. As I have stated also starring Adam West which is just the perfection one needs. West is West. He is Willy Wonka’s golden ticket. Priceless as always.

Actress Annie Golden is also in this. She most recently is of Orange is the New Black fame. In reality Annie’s been acting for many years now. Starting in the 1970’s. She is one of those actresses that never get the just due, she is truly a star, and should be recognized. Also starring Luis Jose Lopez. He to captures his part with total entertainment value. He too has been working for many years and in my viewpoint is an underrated actor. The whole cast of the film is great; each one just floors their characters with comical perfection.

Written and directed by actor, and director Erik Sharkey. This is his first feature length film. He has done some shorts and 2 documentaries’. He is kind of a miscellaneous guru of film, actor, writer, director, producer, camera work and so on. To me he captured in Sexina, a film that true diehard lovers of comedy, b-movies, late night Drive-In flare, will want to watch over, and over. This is also a film to talk about and watch with a group that understands this type of comical B-movie entertainment. The characters are just awesomely crafted and the script is absolutely ridiculous in nature, and yet that is the brilliance of it.

Sexina is a wild, over the top, hoot of entertainment. Crazy plot, characters and conclusion. Just an ultimate good time of corniness. Enter this wanting to roll your eyes, giggle, laugh and you will be totally satisfied.
