Spice Studios Presents <i>The Taunting</i>

LOS ANGELES - Self-proclaimed "scream queen" and adult actress Zenova Braeden makes her directorial debut with Spice Studios' The Taunting, due out Sept. 28.

Touted as a "twisted tale of darkness and forbidden lust," The Taunting follows two college students into an ominous monastery in the town of Golgotha — a place fabled to have been the scene of many sexual orgies and rituals — where they get "taunted" into performing libidinous acts by a succubus spirit.

"It's an excellent movie," producer/co-writer Bob Johnson told AVN. "It's very different from anything anyone has done to date. It is exemplary of the way that Spice Studios is approaching the market."

Johnson said the DVD includes two bonus scenes, one of which pairs Braeden with tattooed cutie Regan Reese, while the other offers a solo performance by the main "ghost" character, played by Lystra.

Also included in the cast are Gianna, Kaiya Lynn, Krissy Kage, Amanda Emino, Sascha, Nikki Vega, Pia Kaamos, Daphne Rosen, Kitty, Cassidy Blue, Jeremy Steele, Katja Kassin, Lee Stone and Anna Mills.

In addition to the DVD release, The Taunting will begin showing on the Spice Digital Networks' Spice:Xcess channel Oct. 13 at 11 p.m. EST. For more information, go to www.spicenetworks.com. For more on Zenova Braeden, go to www.zenovabraeden.com.
