Trouble starts when Jim gets home early from work because it''s their anniversary.

User Reviews
Not as over the top as Meyer''s later output, still an excellent slice of sexploitation
 by The_Void
Lorna is an early Russ Meyer film, but features many themes that are common in his later films - sex and violence obviously, but we also have religion, morality and a surrealist element. The film is slightly similar to Russ Meyer''s 1965 film Mudhoney in terms of style and plot, and the fact that both films star the buxom Lorna Maitland as well as the sleazy Hal Hopper. Russ Meyer would become famous for completely over the top sex films such as Supervixens and Up. This film is not as over the top as the aforementioned titles; but it''s still firmly in Russ Meyer''s style and there''s plenty for sleaze fans to enjoy. As the title suggests; the film focuses on Lorna, the buxom and beautiful wife of Jim. Lorna is bored because Jim, despite being a nice guy, is not exciting enough for her. He goes to work one day and Lorna happens across an escaped convict, who proceeds to rape her. Excited by this man, Lorna takes him home and falls in love with him. Things come to a head when Jim returns home from work early...

It''s easy to pass a film like this off as ''trash'' and it''s certainly not an ''a-class'' film; but there''s actually a lot more going on here than meets the eye and Lorna has an advantage over later Meyer films in that it actually seems to want to make some points about love and infidelity. Aside from a bit of substance, Meyer has also given the film a good style; the clean black and white picture looks great and the film has a ''pulp fiction'' feel to it throughout. The cast is very good too. Of course, the titillating Lorna Maitland is the main standout and she performs well. The film also features Hal Hopper who would also work with Russ Meyer on the later Mudhoney. It''s a real shame that they weren''t able to make more films together because Hal Hopper really fits Meyer''s style and both of his performances for Meyer were excellent. The film flows well throughout and is constantly entertaining, which is definitely a good thing. It all boils down to a good and fitting ending and on the whole, I certainly would not hesitate to recommend Lorna to my fellow Russ Meyer fans!
