The Lickerish Quartet

The Lickerish Quartet 18 rating

A decadent couple and their son invite a circus stunt-woman back to their castle for an evening of erotic games, role-play and revelations.

Drama 1970 88 mins

Director: Radley Metzger

Overview

An aristocratic couple and their son invite a circus stunt-woman back to their castle, claiming they recognise her from their favourite sex film. As she’s drawn into their world, the wealthy trio find more they bargained for as she leads them on an oneiric journey mixing decadence and dream-logic, reality and role-play.

With its high-production values, extravagant production design, lavish setting and (relatively) high-class cast, The Lickerish Quartet is the apogee of artful 1970s erotica.
