Nick East is the "Phantom" of the title of this film, which is set in the year 2000, though it could just as easily been 1994. Nick's into computer hacking, and he's also got the theater, under which he lives, wired for sound and vision — and virtual reality projection. Up above, they make porno movies, where Tyffany Million, as Luna, is the bitchy megastar of Buck Adams' latest production. Her first scene is with Tony Tedeschi, and Tyffany's oral skills are showcased to the max. Her style is reminiscent of one of the great practitioners of the art, Jennifer West. Jon Dough is the money man behind the production, and he takes advantage of his position by getting a pretty good blowjob from Nikki Sinn — who looks absolutely terrific on film.
Mike Horner is a theatrical agent and Kaitlyn Ashley plays a starlet who hasn't appeared in anything except Homer's bed — but mark their one-on-one down as one of the year's best couples scenes.
But suddenly, things start to go wrong in porno land. Somehow, Nick manages to animate one of Buck's rubber sex dolls (he evidently keeps three around at all times) who turns into VixXxen and gives him a ride. The makeup job on VixXxen is terrific; her skin really seems to be of the same color and texture as her latex counterparts. Too bad the sex here is a bit on the lifeless side — when considering the accommodations on which it's performed, their lack of enthusiasm may be forgivable. Anyway, Buck makes up for it moments later with the more animated Leena, who seems really horny — and shows it, in the film's only anal encounter.
But then the weird stuff really starts. T.T. Boy is due an on-screen b.j. but can't get it up with Tyffany. Enter Kaitlyn as a fluffer, who's able to create the proper erection within seconds. Tyffany throws Kaitlyn aside to take over, only to start sucking on air as the Phantom puts on his virtual reality helmet to get the blowjob himself. Add the mosaic camera f/x to this (and a few other scenes) and I found myself really distracted from the business of the day — but in a good way.
This flick scores points for set design, the basic v-r concept, and the acting talents of Homer, Million and Adams, but subtract a few for the confusing nature of the Phantom's powers and a too-heavy emphasis on visual effects. Any way you look at it, however, this is a major production widi some excellent sex woven around a good sci-fi tale, and should be featured prominently in your film section.
