SUMMER LOVERS

The summer video solstice must have just passed: The rentals chart is sporting six new titles this week. The high debut of Bram Stoker's Dracula makes sense, but by relying on home viewers' prurience to overcome bad (or no) word of ; mouth, MGM/UA and New Line have squeezed success from three smaller erotic films as well. The promise of steamy unrated footage from Body of Evidence, Damage, and The Lover-no doubt aided by the influx of randy, out-of-school teens into video stores-pushes all three titles into the top 10.
