All of these reviews of horror movies thanks John Galt! It's quite possibly my biggest influence. I even lived around the corner from where the theatre used to be in Pigalle. Paula Maxa, a player in the Grand Guignol, according to statistics, was "murdered" over 10, times and raped about 3, times on stage.
Rather inspiring for someone like me. The current movement of Torture Porn has its roots in history. For anyone not familiar with the "Theatre of Cruelty", as it was also called, it was a theatre company started in closed in that specialized in graphic horror plays. Often with nudity, rape, GIMP, all kinds of awful themes.
I really wish it was still around. Monday, June 7th - Wow, tons of activity. It's taken me a while to catch up. Thanks for the great review of Women in Cell Block 9. He seemed to like it much more than I did. Would be interested to hear your take. The wasted GIMP potential in that film was unforgivable.
I was actually praying for that movie to end. Although I've not seen as many bondage productions as others here, and this isn't a knock on the producers these days, but I can say I haven't seen anything recently that comes close to ZFX in terms of combining style, story-line, B-grade horror feel, and humor.
This might be a total long shot but have you seen the House of Gord? I think for this crowd, you either really like his stuff or it does nothing for you. I, for one, am really into his work, which focuses more on humiliating and objectifying his victims than pain, although there certainly is some present. His bondage contraptions are some of the most creative outside of cartoons and his victims are attractive and include many familiar faces in the bondage world.
They are often encased in rubber suits, which might not appeal to those who prefer the totally naked look. Check out his site. Would be better for me if you lost Peter: I always wondered why so many sites used RM format.
You, my dear, are welcome here anytime! A belated welcome to you, too. I wish you luck in the custody battle. Those are never pleasant. I also want to thank you for adding the word "poopyfuckfuck" to my vocabulary. Plus, they looked pretty good, although you never know what to expect. My opinion is that the ones I viewed were okay, but not quite what I am looking for. I may have selected poorly, but I don't think so. Anyone with a different experience, point me at the clips that are more in line with my particular perversions.
Also, since I was not sure how Caroline and Peter might feel about it, I did not do any vidcaps or illustrations. The web site has thumbnails of the clips, though, along with excellent descriptions. We begin with Caroline getting off of an elevator, dressed for success as a businesswoman , wearing sunglasses indoors, and carrying an overnight bag.
Nice attention to detail. She walks into her room where a ski-mask wearing Peter attacks her from behind and immediately ball-gags her. There is half-hearted struggling. Peter pulls her back into a sitting position on the foot of the bed and rope ties her wrists behind her back. He proceeds to grope her from behind, unzips her top and massages her full, black bra clad breasts, then kind of pulls them out of the bra.
Next, he ties rope around her waist. Then, he ties her ankles and knees together with rope as well. All told, the intro, attack and bondage application takes up the first 7 minutes. The camera goes mobile long enough to zoom in on Caroline's ball-gagged and sunglasses wearing face, shows us her breasts, still trapped in the black bra but pulled out enough for us to see her hard little nipples and pulls back to reveal her still fully clothed but tightly bound body.
He finally removes her damn sunglasses, pulls out the ball-gag and forces Caroline to suck his cock. Peter holds his hand under Caroline's head and uses a little force, but not enough, I didn't think. The forced blowjob goes for about a minute. Peter then rolls Caroline over onto her stomach on the bed and ties her into a not-very-stringent hogtie.
Caroline struggles in the hogtie as the camera goes mobile again to tour her bound but still clothed body, including a nice close-up of her ball-gagged face. Peter releases Caroline's legs from the hogtie and roughly jerks her skirt up above her ass, eliciting a nice surprised yelp from the helpless Caroline.
Then Peter straddles her legs and fucks Caroline from behind, with her legs still tied together, which isn't impossible but is kind of unsatisfying. Plus, the stationary camera is positioned in front of Caroline, which is good for her subtle reaction shots, but not very revelatory vis-a-vis sexual penetration. So beginning at The action is moderately hard, and there's a great but brief bit where Peter pulls back on her scarf to choke her.
Then he pulls out and comes on her ass, which is clearly visible from the secondary camera angle. Caroline ends up face down on the bed whimpering as Peter walks out. The use of primarily stationary cameras dictated long views for most of the video clip, which gave the clip a static feel. Also, Caroline was completely dressed the entire time, with the exception of her breasts pulled out of her bra just enough to reveal her nipples.
And the sunglasses being on for nearly half of the video didn't do anything for me, although I'm sure there is probably a bondage-and-sunglasses fan club out there somewhere. I also would have liked to see more force employed, especially during the rape. On the plus side, the rope ties were good, even though the hogtie wasn't extreme. The attack and take-down were both passably realistic, with Caroline employing the requisite struggling-but-not-enough-to-get-away that characterizes these types of videos.
Peter was a good assailant, thankfully not doing any of the lame time-killing things I see far too often in rape clips. The action moved forward at a good pace, spending just enough time on take-down, tying, blowjob, struggling in bondage and forced bondage sex. I call this one a C. No nudity counts off. And no explicit sex counts off. I don't want to get all existential here, but really, if you're going to do X-rated stuff, it is a wasted opportunity to do it in such a way that the sex looks simulated.
And there could have been more force, or Caroline could have acted like it hurt a hell of a lot more. It is a RealVideo. RM file, and plays nicely in RealPlayer.
However, there's a loud and annoying second high-pitched tone at the beginning of the clip along with a test pattern that is jarring. Begin the clip with your sound turned down. Although there's a back story about Caroline being a model and Peter being a photographer who takes advantage of her, the clip wastes no time on that. We begin with Caroline in a silk chemise and black high heels, face down on a red-satin-bedspread covered king-size bed.
Each of Caroline's wrists is tied separately to her ankles and she is ball-gagged. Caroline struggles for three minutes, rolling around on the bed sort of trying to escape but mostly just giving us a nice show. Caroline has a dark tan, and did not tan in the nude, so her shapely ass is a nice contrasting white that calls attention to itself as it bounces around on the bed.
At the 3-minute mark, Peter walks in, already naked and with a hard cock, wearing a spooky white mask, which I thought was a nice touch. He taunts Caroline, then removes the ball-gag and forces her to suck his cock. He holds her head up by her hair and fucks her mouth, but there's no brutality behind his thrusting.
Plus, he doesn't go all that deep. Caroline protests, but deep, back of the throat pounding accompanied by retching and watering eyes is not a feature of this forced oral session. Caroline, who is face-down and ass up makes anxious and nervous noises as Peter positions himself behind and on top of her, but there's no scream of pain or violation when he first penetrates her, nor at any time during the rape.
And to add insult to injury, the single stationary camera angle lines up exactly with Caroline's high-heel shod foot to obstruct the view of the point where the business part of Peter is meeting the business part of Caroline, so there's nothing to see.
During the rape, Peter does move back and forth with some enthusiasm, and Caroline does rock forward with each thrust. Caroline also makes victim noises but nothing overly spirited. She closes her eyes and buries her face in the bed in a kind of humiliated denial way.
Peter picks up her head and places his hand over her face, pulling back as the fucks her. I guess I would characterize it as a subtly forceful rape. I think Peter pulls out in time to ejaculate on her ass, but the stationary camera does not move in for a close-up naturally and it is too far away to clearly see. The clip ends with Peter sitting back on the bed behind Caroline. This was a pretty good video clip, although neither as explicit nor as harsh as I like. During Caroline's initial 3-minute struggle, the camera moves around, catching her at different angles.
The chemise works its way up around her waist almost immediately, but the camera never reveals any intimate looks between Caroline's lovely legs. Nor does the chemise ever come off.
