House of Wicked
Leave it to Wicked Pictures to produce a DVD so well-presented (the fold-out packaging is as gorgeous as its covergirls) and so well-made (the videography is excellent, and the picture is filled with different lighting effects and creative angles which never distract) that it can’t help but appeal to all fans of the adult genre. HOUSE OF WICKED is an excellent introduction for those who want to see more than just another gonzo title, and who want to enjoy women who show more passion and emotion (not to mention class and beauty) than your average, barely legal, anal acrobat. It’s a solid presentation which doesn’t overwhelm with excess hardcore, but gives more than fair value for the money.
Shot in anamorphic widescreen, HOUSE OF WICKED hosts seven tightly edited, well-directed vignettes, showcasing the carnal talents of each starlet. It’s like watching a full-length playmate music video, and reminds me of Brad Armstrong’s better titles from yesteryear like VEGAS OR BUST and PARK AVENUE. Even with a relatively short running-time of approximately ninety minutes, you’re never left feeling less than satisfied thanks to the variety of hot women (especially Stormy Daniels and Mikayla Mendez), and varied sex scenes, which take place in different settings and with different themes (Kirsten Price dressed as a sexy coed in “Prep School” worked for me the minute she hit the screen!). I’m sure some viewers always think longer videos mean better porn, but quantity should never be substitute for quality.
What’s most surprising about this flick is that more than half the scenes feature straight sex with multiple partners, beginning with lovely Miss Price taking on Kris Slater and Alan Stafford, then the always hot Jessica Drake accommodating Johnny Castle, Marcus London and Rocco Reed. Later, Kaylani Lei has an interracial affair with Deep Threat (which is at least as good as, if not better than, the coupling I witnessed in THE ACCIDENTAL HOOKER, another fine Wicked title which looks great on Blu-ray), and then its back to another threesome with Alektra Blue, Barrett Blade and Tommy Gunn. Stormy Daniels looks predictably stunning in her scene, even when getting plowed by Danny Mountain, and Mikayla Mendez does equally well in a heated tryst with Derrick Pierce.
HOUSE OF WICKED ends with a bang, as five girls get together for a sapphic orgy (for whatever reason, Stormy is a no-show), which easily matches anything ever presented by Vivid’s better editions of WHERE THE BOYS AREN’T. As an introduction, the girls pose and preen before the clothes come off and the tongues start wagging. In one memorable segment, Kaylani eats out an orgasmic Alektra while Jessica works her way into Miss Lei’s quim with a sword-shaped dildo. Meanwhile, Mikayla gets fingered and pussy-spanked by Kirsten before switching positions. It’s an absolute pleasure to watch.
If there are any misgivings I have about HOUSE OF WICKED at all is that a two girl threesome really would have added value to the content, instead of giving us so many guys in the mix. Also, I was expecting extra footage from the main feature in the Bonus Sex Highlights Reel found in the Special Features; instead, we just get clips from other Wicked productions which run over forty-three minutes long. Otherwise, this single disc release is a fine production for such a well-made video, and another great Wicked release overall.
