One of the earliest blue movies featuring some superb acting from all involved, and a crime plot that will make you remember "Reservoir Dogs" but adds some emotional interest. The various situations are all well paced as is the sexual payoff that Sheila encounters - with quite a bevy of horny friends along for the ride. Of special note are some early screen appearances of now legendary woodsmen - Paul Thomas & Don Fernando. A good mix of decadence! Mimi Morgan's boyfriend is killed by the Mob- to pay off a debt and now she is forced into prostitution. She now must work to get her- REVENGE! Sheila's Payoff will be HUGE! Written by VCX

Poorly directed porn showcase for Mimi Morgan
6 December 2010 | by lor_See all my reviews

It's a shame they couldn't hire a talented director, because in other hands "Shiela's Payoff" (even the title gets misspelled) could have been a classic porn showcase for talented Mimi Morgan.

She stars as a girl telling her life story to Harry (Don Fernando), a guy who promises to help her get a career going as a singer (yeah, right).

Her corny tale involves boy friend Stu (a young Paul Thomas) who she met in a park three years ago. Stu owes $52,000 and unwisely talks back to the thugs (inevitable SF talent Joey Silvera and Ken Scudder) who come to collect, so they kill him. The duo then rape Mimi, but this scene is typically a horrendous travesty from director Bob Kirk, whose earlier METER-MADES (also with Scudder) ranks as one of the crummiest porn films I've ever suffered through.

During this scene it is impossible to figure out whether Mimi "loves it", is disgusted, or ultimately is just bored out of her gourd as the two porn stars treat her to the usual catalog of sexual positions. Since Mimi is otherwise talented, I blame the director.

Now if that bungled footage weren't enough, the previous killing scene is truly idiotic. Even though Thomas, Silvera and Scudder are seriously proficient actors (as demonstrated in literally hundreds of films and videos), all three seem completely at sea trying to ad lib the confrontation scene over the money. It's embarrassing footage of 3 guys who look like they forgot their lines in a high school play (except there aren't any written lines), all duly left in the final print -so once again, I blame the director.

Other episodes of Mimi's existence include a stint of white slavery, when she's forced into prostitution, as we see her service young Jon Martin (he got a new haircut and went on to bigger & better films after this cheapie) in a threesome. Film ends with a surprise twist, again very poorly directed.

Movie opens with familiar themes stolen from Ennio Morricone's scores for A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS and FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, before segueing to sleepier Muzak. Exaggerated moaning and groaning is dubbed on the soundtrack to get the masturbatory viewer into the mood. But you won't need any help as pointy-nippled Mimi is a sight for sore eyes, the only reason to watch this junk.
