VENICE, Calif.—Dana Vespoli is one of the most respected directors in the adult industry, as evidenced by her addition earlier this year to the Evil Angel roster. Her first movies distributed through the company have received great acclaim, just as her pre-EA work did.

This month’s issue of AVN, the annual June “Fresh Issue,” features Dana’s DV Productions, saying that Dana has “been directing for various companies since 2006, has always had a distinct style, which leans toward edgy fetishy BDSM-tinged sex wrapped in intriguing story lines.”

They talk about her Evil Angel debut, Forsaken, which they say “exhibited her trademark directorial sensibilities”: “[The movie stars] Ash Hollywood as a girl who wakes up in the woods with blood on her dress, but has no wounds, no memory of who she is and sets off to solve the mystery.”

Dana also brings her edgy, original angle to her latest, She’s Come Undone. Starring Dana, Sinn Sage, India Summer, Sovereign Syre, Presley Hart, Julia Ann and Lea Lexis, with an appearance by Manuel Ferrara, the movie is an emotional and intricate thriller psychologically as well as physically. Dana performs, directs and shoots camera when she’s not performing.
