Underrated adult auteur Armand Weston's follow-up to his groundbreaking Defiance of Good , this no less impressive rape 'n' revenge flick marks the filmmaker's entire exploration of " roughie " territory along with its predecessor, both co-written or " conceived " as a slightly pretentious opening credit would have it and produced by stalwart performer Jason Russell. Neither one appears on screen on this occasion yet they had been the stars of Weston's maiden effort Personals from , produced by future fornication filmmaker extraordinaire " Cecil Howard " aka Howard Winters, friends with the director since Kindergarten! Though The Taking of Christina would routinely seem to adhere to that certain exploitation subgenre centering on violation and subsequent retribution, Weston and Russell cleverly subvert audience expectations at every turn, creating a work as compellingly singular as their previous collaboration.
