Bondage, torture and rape. Not exactly the way to a woman’s heart. Or is it?
RENE BOND (in pigtails) portrays a chaste and pure virgin who’s taken prisoner by "Daddy" (RIC LUTZE) and his hot and itchy wife Honey. These two aren’t exactly Archie and Veronica - after violating their victim they lick up the blood from between her legs.
Bond is kept alive only for the pleasure of her keepers. Other activities include forcing her to suck Honey’s toes, shoving a vibrator up her tush and using a pair of pliers on her nipples. Sound romantic? I hope not.
Basically Rene gets abused throughout the flick’s entire running time. Worse, she begins to enjoy it. She thinks of herself as their "baby". During the nail-biting climax she ponders pulling a Lorena Bobbitt and slicing Daddy’s meat mallet. Instead she chooses to remain their captive and explore her sexuality. Girl in a Basket
is a psycho-sexual exorcise in sadism. It caters to male rape fantasies and sets Women’s Lib back fifty years. For fans of Rene Bond it’s a must-see. Your hair will stand on end. Your pubic hair that is.
