Audience Member Recommended only on the basis that you're a fan of sexploitation movies. A story in three parts as a teenage runaway wanders around aimlessly encountering various characters, most of whom want to use her sexually in some way. She becomes a mugger's accomplice, a lesbian artist's muse and, eventually, well, you know the title. Lots of fun nudity and worth it for the weird ending, although the pet portion of the film is really only the last fifteen minutes or so. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Gave it a spin to finally see if that fairly iconic cover art actually paid off in the film, and it does indeed build to some truly bizarro stuff in the final reel. Worth tracking down if you have a chance and enjoy the low-budget sleaze from back in the day. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member A little disappointed in Pets as I thought this was going to be a much sleazier film w/ women sold into human bondage & kept as people pets. Although an exploitation film it does play a lot of elements very close to the chest. Can't overtly be disappointed w/ what you don't get though & for what it is Pets is mildly entertaining Drive-In/Grindhouse. Candice Rialson is a no skilled sex pot that runs away from he abuse old man who gets a job posing for a lesbian artist Joan Blackman. She becomes bored w/ the tedium of Blackman's undying affections because she needs real dick & ends up fucking a burger who breaks into the house. Blackman's green eyed monster shine through causing Rialson to run into the arms of 'art lover' Berry Kroeger who breaks her spirit & keeps her in a cage as his pet. Even w/ this plot Pets takes far too long to get to the true meat & potatoes even @ it's a little long in the tooth running time & should have trimmed some of the fat & been a true exploitation film. A lot of missed opportunities but what actually is there isn't bad Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Entertaining sexploitation! A rarity in both the sense that it's hard to see and that it's an entertaining sexplo! A woman lost in the world goes from person to person trying to settle down, only to find that people tend to only want her for sex and subordination. Robbery, nude painting, and whips ensue! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
