Fade To Black

Director: Paul Thomas
Studio: Vivid

Winner of 8 AVN awards, including Best Film and Best Director

Vivid Productions’ multi-AVN award-winning Fade to Black, starring stunning Taylor Hayes and directed by porn institution, Paul Thomas, certainly lives up to its accolades by offering one of the best acted and written adult films I have ever seen. Borrowing the “film-within-a-film” and “blurring of film and reality” concepts from any number of sources (e.g. “The Stunt Man”, “Bowfinger,” etc.), Fade to Black delivers an absorbing plot (as adult films go) about a young porn hopeful (Hayes) and her boyfriend (Dale DaBone) who become pawns in a game of deception masterminded by a bored, narcissistic adult film director (Thomas). However, hardcore “porn” junkies, who want rapid-fire action to which they can spank their meat like a spider monkey with attention-deficit disorder, may get a bit bored with Fade to Black‘s intricate plot. Nevertheless, rest assured that the main feature has some solid “entertainment” and, with its soap-opera-like plot and less-than-hardcore action, Fade to Black would likely be a great viewing choice for open-minded couples. Filmed in 1992.
