Jonni Darkko's Evil Angel directorial debut is a superior piece of work that nonetheless seems a bit less heated than his consistently wankable output at New Sensations. It's hardedge, of course, but not too hardedge. When's the last time, for instance, you saw an EA production without a single d.p?
All five scenes are cleanly and crisply produced and feature a top-notch cast of babes, including such A-list super-whores as Lauren Phoenix, Taylor Rain and Katrina Kraven (never looking better - barely recognizable, in fact - in a red-streaked wig, fishnets, shiny black boots and electrical tape over her nips. Yummy.). But the sex, while solid enough, in general ambles on at a mid-level intensity, only sporadically cumming to a full-on boil.
Still, this isn't exactly couples fare, and a few pure raincoater moments include the luscious, anorexic Rain, who just reeks of sex addiction, sporting panties with "fuck my ass" written on them in magic marker, doing just that with a black police baton (pre-nom her scene with Jack Lawrence for Best Sex Scene - Coupling), and Jennifer Luv and Alexis Malone hungrily swapping Mark Ashley's protein shake as if they're on a strict Atkins regimen.
Even so, next time out, Darkko may want to do with less angels and more debauchery.
