Young Harlots School Reunion provides three times the action of your usual Young Harlots title because in this particular DVD Harmony have package three of their most popular titles into one standard DVD case.
Dirty Secrets, In Detention and School Trip which you can read reviewed here give you the opportunity to take in the filthy antics of the depraved Masters of Gazzman’s Young Harlots academies as they tutor the all too willing students in every form of sex.
Depending on how your local video outlet prices these triple packs it may be forth buying one even if you already own or have seen one of the titles, and of course if you have never seen them before then you’re likely to get these at knock down price and will have over 8 hours of hardcore action to enjoy.
Most Young Harlot films follow pretty familiar plots so if you are in to young ladies at finishing school being fucked hard by the staff and each other then this will be bliss.
You’ll see all the old regulars as tutors and a bevy of new and familiar talent getting down and dirty in school uniform.
According to Harmony “Harmony Films brings you 3 of the best Young Harlots movies in one tantalizing box set! The most slutty, downright filthy teens learn how to become good little whores at the Academy for girls. These grade A students acquire extra circular lessons on ass fucking, pussy munching and cock gobbling.”
Cunning Stunts is another DVD from the Harmony Films Studio. Directed by Strangelove it tries to add something a little different to the genre of erotic/pornographic movies.
The first scene involves a doctor’s couch, a penis pump, stirrups and a butt plug. There’s lots of mutual licking and sucking. Lots and lots and – well it does go on for quite a while. Cindy Dollar really does get a seeing-to.
Next it’s Tanya Tate’s turn to get a serious seeing to from Jay R and she seems to enjoy it too, including the graphic facial cum shot. A very enthusiastic performance.
Michelle Moist and Kate Harrington then indulge in a bit of solo masturbation for you to enjoy. They get together with tongues and toys then move to the shower …
Aliz comes next in a slightly contrived but pretty well done voyeuristic scene. The sliding about all over the wet shower screen should work better than it does, but the section filmed from under the glass dance floor works, is different and effective. Another over-long blowjob (if enthusiastic) followed by a hard shag.
Finally Sarah Twain gets a helping hand and cock from Jay R when her vibrator breaks while she’s playing in the hot tub. Not all pool attendants are that helpful, or that well endowed. They are then joined by pool attendant #2 to ensure that every one of Sarah’s orifices are thoroughly attended to.
While this is certainly a different take on porn it sometimes comes across as being a little eclectic as if there were lots of ideas that could have been explored better in two slightly shortened movies with less of a mix in each. That isn’t to say this is a bad movie just lacking in a coherent theme. Of course the fact that I’m even considering that it should have a theme shows that this isn’t your bargain basement porn.
The lighting is good, sometimes excellent, sound clear though occasionally out of step with the action. The camera work is of the usual Harmony high standard and the picture quality is HD, no grainy VHS-eqsue rubbish here. You get to see everything, clearly and in HD just plug it into your 52″ TV and feel part of the action LOL.
Cunning Stunts is a good DVD. Apart from where noted above each of the scenes is better in isolation that as part of the whole. But then when did you last watch every scene in a porn movie from beginning to end?
Satan’s Whore from Harmony Films illustrates once again that Harmony is always striving to be distinctive and add narrative to adult films reversing a trend by many other studios towards a movie being between 4 and 6 bland, repetitive scenes that simply depict a random selection from a menu of sex acts.
The premise of the video is that it forms the only surviving film record of a satanic ritual performed 43 years ago – to create the perfect sexual creature known as “Satan’s Whore”.
As theme for a video this is great. Think of all the possibilities sadly this is one of the weakest parts of the DVD. All the Satanic Devil-Speak uttered by the narrator is complete gumble. “On the sixth day of the sixth month 1966” that’s 4 sixes, not 3! And why not the summer solstice, much more auspicious and only 14 days later, LOL. I could go on about his but I won’t, it’s best if you pretend this bit of the film (the Devil-Speak) isn’t happening and you can enjoy the good bits.
The brief depiction of a “Black Mass” with post-produced, discoloured, 1960s tinted and scratchy “film” is OK and isn’t overplayed. The editor didn’t fall in to the trap of trying to post-process the whole movie, indeed even the whole mass, with the effect.
The film is divided into six scenes, or as the story would have it “The Six Steps To Whoredom”. The High Def video allows the atmospheric parts of the film to work really well, the sound quality adding a depth to the production that is too often lacking. However the movie isn’t quite perfect. Which is a shame because it is easy to imagine that it could have been.
In “The Bitch” Anan Nicol, Claudia Rossi and Jay R (The snake man himself) begin with a sensuous voyeuristic opening. This is incredibly effective right up until Jay R gets up from his chair and joins in the fun. From then on the underlying bed of chants and moans fades out so you can hear the three performers getting down and dirty. The performances are great, but the camera is hand-held, very well hand-held, but the constant movement, panning, titling and zooming, was a little too much. Yes, we got to get close in on the action but it was occasionally off-putting.
“The Virgin” starts with the less than virginal Ree Petra, in a bath, with a big black dildo. I’m guessing she didn’t buy the dildo from B&Q when she bought the bath. Donning a white waspie stockings and gloves she jumps on her lover who’s already tied to the bed awaiting the arrival of Ree and her impressive chest. He doesn’t stay tied to the bed for long and you can guess the rest. I particularly like the close-up shots of Ree licking cock. It’s slow, naughty and one of the points where the close-up hand-held does work.
“The Seductress” (Dana De Armond) plays with her ultimately superfluous glass ball while a kneeling Olivier Sanchez flails himself. Anal, oral, rimming, you want it, you get it in this scene. Dana De Armond’s plea of “don’t stop fucking me” is hardly necessary but effective nonetheless, LOL.
Alexandra Cat is “The Slut”. Wearing gorgeous sexy underwear the Russian minx first entertains two then three men simultaneously. The heat of the scene is generated more from the pure devilish lust from Alexandra Cat than the lights. It gets so hot in the room during the shoot that all four performers are dripping with sweat by the inevitably sticky end.
Olivier Sanchez and Stracy Stone Get it on in “The beauty”. A good solid m-f scene with some nice ball sucking, oooh nice hehehe.
The final scene is “The Perfect Whore”. Bobbi Starr takes on three strapping young lads to prove that she is the ultimate and willing servant of their sexual desires. Now don’t get me wrong here, this is a sex-filled scene revolving around the gorgeous and very horny Bobbi Starr, but I felt it was a little frantic as everyone tried to get in on the action at the same time. That eroded the atmosphere for me, and Bobbi was at her sexy best laid on the couch in the cut scenes being generally hot and horny.
Inter-scene graphics and cut scenes are good to excellent throughout if you ignore the confused diabolically silly occult nonsense. The cover design is good, though not groundbreaking and the text on it easy to read. I mention that as I hate standing in an adult store straining to read tiny, badly printed and low contrast cover notes.
The production values and quality are top-notch. Make-up and costumes are appropriate and beautifully executed. The sets are spot on and fit the theme of the movie, atmospheric and slightly dark.
Any criticisms of this film have to be put in the context of the high standard that Harmony set themselves and the rest of the industry. If most other studios had produced this it would be regarded as their best work. The up-close and constantly mobile camera work in some scenes is not quite my cup of tea, though it might be yours. Go get a copy, watch it and see for yourself.
At 2 hours 40 minutes you know The Wicked Ones is going to contain a huge amount of sucking and fucking. The question is always – “ Is it worth watching?
Being a Harmony film, directed by Tanya Hyde the answer is usually YES!
Happily this DVD follows the Harmony pattern of higher than average production values, excellent lighting and makeup, great sets and outstanding camera work. The whole thing is filmed in HD, nice.
The DVD consists of four scenes “Control”, “The Filth And The Frenzy”, “The Den Of Depravity” and “Flog ’em And Fuck ’em”. You’ll have gathered from the title that there’s a BDSM theme to the whole DVD. Filmed in a fantastically well equipped dungeon and lit to create an atmosphere absent in most other porn titles The Wicked Ones is going to be one of our favourites for a long time.
All but “The Filth And The Frenzy” are great scenes. The only reason I regard this scene as just OK is the clown masks which are simply not my thing. However the cum shot over a beautifully formed ass and corseted back does redeem the scene at the very end. Pity the girls in this scene are not credited except on the sleeve because the blonde with the beautiful ass has a gorgeous pair of natural boobs too.
The two highlights for me are the girl-girl action in The Den Of Depravity, Michelle Moist and Michelle Thorn are so sexy in latex, and secondly there is Flog ’em And Fuck ’em. In this, the final scene, you are treated to the incomparable Jay Snake dividing his energetic and inventive attentions between Sofia Valentine (sporting a very cute bob) and a Ree Petra (now brunette and with her hair in bunches).
From the flogging on the bondage wheel through Sofia Valentine riding Jay across the floor to lick Petra into submission we loved this scene. Apart from the kiss between Ree and Sofia being cut short (more girl-girl kisses of this quality please) the scene itself is worth the price of the DVD on its own.
Every performer delivers a very satisfying element to this ensemble piece. All the girls give everything they’ve got and special mention has to go the towering colossus of porn that is Jay R AKA Jay Snake. His impressive stature (in every sense of the phrase) and endurances, coupled with his attentiveness to the girls makes him stand out as a truly great adult performer.
The camera angles are great and well thought out, camera work is steady and the lighting of every shot puts most other porn productions to shame. The music bed laid under the sounds of the performers is atmospheric and not intrusive. The dungeon setting means there is ample opportunity to use the array of BDSM equipment and use it they do.
Well, the white latex masks didn’t do it for me, but that’s a personal preference. I like to see a girl being fucked by a guy, not anonymous, faceless cock. The scene title cards too are a bit off-putting, the colours clash and the neon drop shadow on the text looked like they were from a different and lower quality movie. Odd because everything else about The Wicked Ones screams class.
