The story of Double Fantasy involves three girlfriends played by Madison Di Loren, Noreen Abrams and Jennifer Drake. The friends drive out to a spooky house on eastern Long Island to tell each share their fantasies with each other.
The first fantasy concerns one of the girls (Jennifer Drake) getting more sexual loving than one could ever imagine. The second fantasy is a Beauty and the Best type tale of “Joann Lavelle” (Madison Di Loren) having a relationship with the legendary “Shadow Man” (Ted Moriates) who actually lived within the old house they are within.
The last girl (Noreen Abrams) has a funny quick fantasy that helps deflate the tension sustained in the dark love story that proceeded it.
But Joann’s fantasy isn’t over like you think, when she gets the ultimate choice to join her man in heaven. But if she does do it, she will die here in our existence.
On November 19, 1989 Terry directed his 14th amatuer music video (a music video done without artist’s permission, telling a story to a song). This time he tackled Metallica – “To Live Is To Die” off And Justice For All.
The video was shot on Long Island in 6 1/2 hours at the Wickham’s apartment in Elmont, Valley Stream State Park and Trapani home in Oceanside, New York.
The video was shot by Lou Trapani. Special Make-up Effects were done by Jason Alvino and Joseph Biondi.
The story involved six young women getting revenge on their cheating boyfriend’s by killing them in violent, gory ways (electrocution in the shower, throat slashing, hanging by rope, knife to the gut, rifle gunshot and pistol gunshot the head). It’s a theme that was carried over from Terry’s film Madame Red and believe it or not made for a fun shoot with everyone getting into it.
