It is 2010. Virtual reality has replaced TV, and people are far more
addicted. The FCC pretty much runs things, with help from the police, and
the traditional courts have been replaced by citizens' committees which
resemble today's juries. VR sex is illegal, except in Nevada, and you must
have the approval of a citizens' committee approval to have real sex.
People start dying in the middle of VR shows. They receive private
content, in the person of Rochelle Swanson, who gives them cyber-sex until
they are ready to climax, which triggers an explosive charge in their VR
unit and kills them. Michael Phenicie is a licensed tracer (one who
investigates VR crimes), and is brought in to find out how this is happening
and stop it.
The concept of this film had promise. With the VR premise, there is infinite
possibility for misdirection, as it is very difficult to tell the difference
between VR experiences and real ones. The VR theme provided license to
include virtually anything in the story. Unfortunately, perhaps because of
budgetary limitations, the execution could have been much better, and the
premise could have been exploited far more effectively.
Hungry for You is theoretically a sci-fi riff on the couples erotica
theme, but it's just barely erotica. The nudity is less than you would
expect if you watched the film expecting a softcore, and the sex and nudity
are lukewarm at best.
