The video quality is very good. After reviewing the blu-ray version of "Manhunters", I was a little concerned about Wicked's blu-ray authoring. This disk, however, looks great. The first thing you notice is the menu screen, which is super-sharp and vibrantly colorful. The video quality is consistenly excellent throughout, and complements, and brings out the best in, Clousot's richly colorful videography.
PLOT AND SCENES:
The sex is basically couples oriented; there is no anal and condoms are used in every scene. Stormy plays Lilly, a drug-addicted waitress. The first scene features her and Voodoo in a seedy hotel room. Nothing much remarkable here.
Lilly has a rich, older customer, Henry (played by Dave Cummings), who leaves her $100.00 tips. Apparently, Henry is acting as her guardian Angel (or stalker) because he appears on the scene with a handgun just in the nick of time to prevent Lilly being raped in a phone booth. Lilly concedes that she has hit bottom, and allows Henry to help her straighten her life out and get off of drugs. Unsurprisingly, Lilly eventually agrees to marry Henry, who is very rich.
We see Henry and Lilly in bed together, but not having sex. Too bad. Dave Cummings having sex with Stormy would have tripled the kinkiness of this movie. (I seem to recall a great scene with Cummings and Serenity in "Pornogothic", but that was 8 years ago, and the ick factor of such an extreme May/December coupling will have risen since then.)
Anyway, Henry buys Lilly alot of toys and baubles, and they are happy, but then he gets cancer and passes away, leaving Lilly a wealthy young women (my favorite kind).
Henry is survived by the young lawyer, Garrett (played by Tony DeSergio), who has helped manage Henry's affairs for many years. Soon, Garrett and Lilly are keeping close company. He introduces her to the swinging scene, and scene two is a scene with two couples, the females of which are Roxy DeVille and Diana Doll. Scene three is just a brief fantasy scene with Stormy and Tony, where she is giving him head.
Scene four is where Garrett really introduces Lilly to the kinky side of things: a whole room full of naughty boys and girls into S&M. The scene was really wasted, as we only see the action for a few seconds at a time. Finally, we get a sustained view of Stormy in a lesbian coupling with Roxy Deville, but even this scene is way too short. This scene could have been so much more and better than it was.
The next scene features Roxy and Tony who, we later learn, are ex spouses and have hatched a plot to make off with Henry's fortune. The plot has apparently evolved and lengthened in a way that Roxy doesn't like. She thinks Garrett's growing affection for Lilly will prevent him from stealing the family fortune as they had apparently previously planned. Roxy is wearing a purple latex dress, and when she turns around to do standing doggy, we see that she has inserted a matching purple buttplug. Nice touch!
The last two scenes are unquestionably the best. Scene Six features Randy Spears and Gianna Lynn as Garrett and Lilly's dinner guest. Turns out Gianna is Randy's 24/7 slave ("She's signed a slave contract"), and Randy demonstrates Gianna's submissivness by sexually taking her right in front of their hosts. Seeing this, Lilly decides she wants this kind of relationship with Garrett, and Scene seven is Stormy and Tony, with Stormy wearing a collar and dog leash. These last too scenes were terrific.
There is an 11 minute bonus scene from Predators 2: the Return, featuring Stormy and Penny Flame. There is a behind-the-scenes featurette that lasts almost half an hour, photo galleries, and trailers for: Bound, Cockstar, Almost Perfect, The Artist, and The Oracle.
This is a very good feature film, of the high quality to which we have become accustomed from Wicked. The blu-ray video quality is very good, and the plot and acting are also unusually good. It could certainly have been kinkier, and I would have been happier if it were, but it is still a very good bondage-lite, couples orient feature film. Stormy is just amazing, and there is alot of her in this movie. So if you are Stormy fan, this movie is a "must have."
