While vacationing in Hungary, David (Johnathon Schaech), a young promising politician, and Tish (Lori Heuring), his wealthy fiance, engage in a menage-a-trois with a beautiful model only to find themselves the target of blackmail and murder. Director J.S. Cordone uses stunning Budapest locations, the Danube river, Turkish baths, and authentic sex clubs to enormous advantage, creating a moody atmospheric look. Extras are slim: two “making of” docus and two trailers — one for the 1999 original, distribbed by Col, and the second for this pic, titled “The Velvet Side of Hell” when Screen Gems intended to give it a theatrical bow.
