Temptress (1995)

MPAA Rating: R

Details Movie Rated: R; Genre: Mystery and Thriller; With: Kim Delaney and Chris Sarandon

Karin (Kim Delaney) on her return from India: ''I tapped into something so profound — goddess energy!'' Yes, well, not profound enough. The hokum flies in Temptress, this addled made-for-video ''thriller,'' with its fake-looking mysticism and even faker sex, leeringly silly walk-on by Corbin Bernsen, and Kali-versus-Siva showdown. Renters who check out tapes on the basis of their sleeves, beware: This one has ''sexy'' and ''modest'' cover versions, though in both cases the tape is the same: ''lousy.'' C-
