Pure Taboo's ‘Anne: A Taboo Parody’ to Release on DVD Oct. 2

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Pure Taboo’s highly touted Anne: A Taboo Parody makes its way to DVD October 2.

Directed by Bree Mills and Craven Moorehead, the ambitious re-telling of the classic Broadway musical Annie stars Eliza Jane in the title role of an orphan who's just turned 18 and is trying to find her parents and escape the heinous conditions of her transition home.

“After our first film, Half His Age: A Teenage Tragedy, took home last year's AVN Award for Movie of the Year, I knew I had to come out strong with our follow-up feature for Pure Taboo,” Mills said. “So, I decided to disrupt another long-standing adult genre that I felt was due for a shake-up: the parody.”

Mills continued, “I chose one of the most beloved, innocent stories we know, and turned it on its head ... taking the often-under-explored aspect of parody as a social critique, and bringing it to the forefront of Anne, my dark re-imaging of the Little Orphan Annie saga. To achieve this, I drew a lot of inspiration from musicals, even though the project is NOT a musical. It features a great cast, several big production numbers, and different sets and settings. Best of all, it is a showcase for the incredibly gifted dramatic actors in our industry, including Tommy Pistol, Kristen Scott, Derrick Pierce, and a breakout role by Eliza Jane."

“Pure Taboo’s releases define the new generation of porn production,” offered Pulse Distribution vice president of Sales Hyland C. “With top-notch star talent, shot beautifully, with a solid, well-constructed, engaging storyline, Mills and Moorehead prove why they’ve earned the industry’s respect. Anne has already received a tremendous amount of media buzz for their take on the classic story; it’s bound to be a sure winner. Retailers, make sure you stock this title right away.”

Of her role, Jane commented, “I am so proud of the work I did in bringing Anne to life, and I sincerely thank everyone who played a part, including all the fans who seem just as excited as the rest of us to finally see it."

Added Mills, “The first time I worked with Eliza, I knew there was something special about her ... something deep down inside, that was just begging to be let out. She did not disappoint! I have rarely seen such passion or dedication to a role, from transforming her entire look exclusively for the film, to being on set day in and day out, to take on this incredibly challenging and emotional character. Eliza left the entire cast and crew in goosebumps throughout much of the filming; she had such a difficult role to take on, portraying emotions ranging from sorrow and fear to joy and exuberance, and she nailed each and every one of them. She’s an incredible talent with an amazing future ahead of her; I look forward to seeing her name in bright lights and with strong consideration for her as Best Actress during this year’s award season."

Also appearing in Anne are Ashley Adams, Casey Calvert, Whitney Wright, Derrick Pierce, Sarah Vandella, Mick Blue, Seth Gamble and Steve Holmes. View the official trailer here
