The Short Story
Initial Expectations: This series has been a little hit or miss for me, as can be Paul Thomas' work. I'm not quite sure what to expect here.
Initial Reaction: It won't be for everybody, but this is an amazing production.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting their features dark and artistic
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting straightforward action.
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are very well done. The audio is clear and well balanced, and I didn't notice any background noises. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks great. It's nicely clear and smooth with great care put into the lighting and editing.
Music: The music is very limited, and has a very good balance for it to strengthen the production rather than draw away from it.
Watermark Warning: Although I don't think anybody wants to see watermarks, I can understand studios wanting to do something to protect themselves and can live with a tasteful watermark if that's what they think will do it. Here Vivid does it pretty well with a small watermark in the lower right corner that stays in position to make it easy to filter out. It could be a little smaller and lower, but isn't nearly as bad as other watermarks I've seen.
Menus: The main menu is fairly simple and works a little animation in with the boxcover. The chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene as well as a title for the scene.
The FeatureMelinda Jones (BellaDonna) of the Seattle Free Press thinks she's on the fast track to fame when she lands a major story and gets the eye of reclusive major player Savanna Samson in California through local preacher Evan Stone. She tells Savanna that she'd do anything to be famous, and soon after Savanna sends her on assignments to see if she has what it takes. BellaDonna knows she has what it takes, but doesn't always consider the total cost of what she wants.
|Scene 1 – BellaDonna and Kurt Lockwood|
After teasing the workers outside their place, BellaDonna comes back inside to get some loving from her man Kurt. She bends over the kitchen counter to tell him how she wants him before Kurt moves in to kiss her, grab her ass, and drops down to eat it with a few kisses mixed in for her pussy and thighs. Kurt lays back for Bella to ride his tongue before she comes down to kiss him and suck his cock. Of course Kurt wants some attention for his ass as well, so Bella mixes in a little ass munching as well as plenty of ball and cock sucking as well as submissive face fucking. They mix in some standing sixty-nine, more face sitting, and even a little foot play, spit play, and slapping before Bella lays back for Kurt to fuck her pussy missionary style. He moves on to fuck her ass missionary style and lets her suck his cock clean while mixing in a little more kissing and slapping along with plenty of dirty talk from each of them. Kurt taps Bella's ass from behind next with more ass to mouth and ass eating mixed in, before fucking it missionary style. Kurt busts a nut in Bella's butt and lets her squeeze it out onto her fingers to eat.
This is a fantastic scene. No, it's not soft and cuddly, but the intense action works very well for both of them. The scene moves at a very good pace and Bella and Kurt look to both love all the anal action. Adding in an anal cream pie at the end only makes this one better, with Bella and Kurt making this one amazing start to the movie.
|Scene 2 – Carmella Bing, Rebeca Linares, and Kurt Lockwood|
While laying by the pool, Kurt spots busty brunette Carmella and sultry Spaniard Rebeca. He has them team up on his undercarriage with Carmella sucking his cock as Rebeca devours his ass before Carmella takes over on his ass orally while he takes Rebeca from behind. Carmella lays back for Kurt to fuck her missionary style with Rebeca helping them orally before she lays back and fucks her ass with a toy as Kurt fucks Rebeca's ass from behind and sucks Carmella's toes. Carmella moves behind Kurt to fuck his ass while he fucks Rebeca's, and then lets Kurt fuck her ass while Rebeca fucks her own with a toy and sucks his cock clean. The girls drop down to team up on Kurt orally before Carmella lays back to give up the ass again with Rebeca on her knees next to her so Kurt can easily move over to fuck his way between their asses. The girls finally get down to share a nice facial between them.
This is another hot scene. There's a great balance between the girls, as well as plenty of chemistry between them and Kurt. As usual Kurt gets as good as he gives when it comes to anal action, and the girls take it all very well. Add in some very well done camera work and you have another hot anal scene.
|Scene 3 – Belladonna and Kurt Lockwood; Belladonna and Nick Manning|
After fighting, Bella gets it on with Kurt while having flashes of him being Nick. She lays back on the bed for Kurt / Nick to kiss her before Kurt / Nick moves down to tongue her holes. Bella lays Kurt back to suck his cock, and as he moves into being Nick again takes a load in her mouth. She tries to keep going, but Kurt stops her complaining of pain as well as feeling something's going on with Bella.
This is a good oral scene. The flashing between the guys works well, and as usual Bella does a nice job sucking cock. This is a shorter scene, but one that works well both sexually and in the overall story.
|Scene 4 – Belladonna and Penny Flame; Penny Flame, Victoria Sin, and Tom Byron|
Not knowing she's undercover, whore Penny tells Bella about her time with preacher Tom while getting turned on and taking on Bella herself. As Tom has Penny suck his cock, she kisses her way around Bella's tits and neck while Bella plays with her pussy. Victoria moves in to watch as Penny sucks Tom before helping her suck him as Tom talks about evil, temptation, and holiness. Bella moves on to finger and eat Penny before Penny encourages her to play with her asshole and Tom eats Victoria's asshole while she eats Penny. Tom moves on to fuck Victoria from behind with Penny urging him on before Victoria sucks him clean and lets Penny ride him reverse cowgirl style. Victoria sucks him clean before getting back on cowgirl style and letting Penny suck him clean a few times. Penny lets Tom take her from behind as Victoria watches and plays with her holes, and then watches as Victoria gives up the ass missionary style. Bella fingers her ass as Penny tells her, and even lets Penny finger her ass as Victoria impales her ass on Tom's cock cowgirl style. Tom finally fucks Penny missionary style before spraying his seed between their faces. Bella gets so turned on at the story that she lets Penny fuck her ass with a beer bottle while spanking her ass. Penny fingers Bella's ass a bit more before telling Bella about her plans for the future.
This is a very well done scene. Not only does it work into the story very well, but it also works very well between the scenes. So often in scenes like this the heat and chemistry falters as the scenes go back and forth, but here it continues to flow nicely. Penny does every bit as good of a job with Bella as she does with Tom and Victoria. Each scene could stand nicely on its own, but together they seem to feed off each other. This is another very well done scene.
|Scene 5 – Belladonna, Carmella Bing, Penny Flame, Rebeca Linares, Savanna Samson, Victoria Sin, Evan Stone, Kurt Lockwood, Nick Manning, Steven St. Croix, and Tom Byron|
Bella starts the penultimate scene against a cross, naked and with robes all over her body . Some of the women come to check her out as the others get busy in front of her with Savanna making her way between Evan and Nick and the other girls taking care of themselves, Tom, and Steven. Soon after Bella's free and sucking Nick and Evan as Savanna pumps her from behind with a strap-on. The action continues around the groups with girls coming and going except for Bella, who continues to take on Nick and Evan while Savanna disappears. Finally the guys surround Bella to cum all over her with Savanna returning to help with the cumshots.
This is a very well done orgy. There's plenty of action all around, but it all centers on Bella. This scene centers on the corruption of her soul, and it does a very nice job of it. There's a very dark feeling all around the scene, and Bella seems as if she's completely given up the fight and given in even knowing she shouldn't. This is yet another well done scene.
|Scene 6 – Savanna Samson and Steven St. Croix|
Savanna starts the final scene wearing a wig and black fishnets with her legs in the air as Steven pumps her ass. She sits up to suck his cock and balls before turning around to let him mount her ass from behind. He has Savanna suck him clean before moving her to an ottoman, spitting on her holes, and fucking each of her holes from behind. Savanna keeps giving up her cunt in missionary and reverse cowgirl with a bit more oral action mixed in before finally letting Steven pop on her stomach.
This is a decent final scene. Savanna in the wig didn't work for me that well, and I rarely care for scenes that seem to start in the middle. The action moves at a nice pace with Savanna giving up each of her holes very well, and also works into the story good, but this scene never drew me in like the others. This isn't a bad scene, but it never grabbed me like the others.
Devil in Miss Jones: The Resurrection is a very well made adult movie. It's not happy or cuddly like so many people still expect from Vivid, but is very well written and artistic. BellaDonna does an amazing job in the lead role, and the supporting cast does just as good of a job. The action is normally hard and nasty, and part of me isn't sure how Penny Flame got out without giving up the ass (although I can't wonder if Kurt volunteered to take her turn to let her out of it). The opening scene was easily my favorite, and although the final scene didn't work that well for me I can't say any of the scenes his the average mark. Devil In Miss Jones: The Resurrection is dark and artistic porn at some of its best.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for four other Vivid releases. The photo gallery lasts about six and three quarter minutes. There's also a behind the scenes featurette, a bonus scene, and commercials.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts just under a half hour. After a quick skid row introduction to the production, Bella talks about the upcoming production with a quick interruption from Evan Stone. The featurette continues around Bella and Evan, with plenty of chatting with each of them as well as a little chatting with PT and working with the snake for one of the opening scenes. You also get a bunch of photo shoot footage before PT works with the cast for the the dialogue scene in the church as well as a little fun with Penny. PT also works with the cast for the orgy scene before Evan and Nick have a little more fun. Bella chats about her upcoming scene as well as slang and features versus what she's normally used to shooting. This is a pretty good behind the scenes featurette. You get plenty of personality from BellaDonna and Evan as well as a bit from the rest of the cast. There's also some good fun, eye candy, and PT working with the cast. This is a very nicely done featurette that adds quite a bit to the overall DVD package.
|Bonus Scene – Jenna Jameson and Savanna Samson|
The bonus scene comes from The New Devil in Miss Jones as Savanna gets it on with Devlish Jenna outside. They help each other strip down and kiss before Savanna sucks Jenna’s tits. Jenna flips her upside down to eat her pussy before letting Savanna lie back to get tongued. They flip each other back and forth while working each other over naturally, and even get in a little anal fingering. Finally, they bring things to a close with a little kissing while leaving the scene feeling like it could go a little longer.
This is scene had plenty of passion but felt cut short. At the time of this release, Jenna and Savanna were two of the biggest stars associated with Vivid, and it seems just wrong to have a scene between them cut as short as it was here. They really seem to be into each other, and even the little kissing at the end didn’t leave it feeling complete. For the passion between Savanna and Jenna, this scene seemed almost like a tease.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, rimming (male > female and female > male), anal, ass to mouth, cream pie (anal), group, lesbian, pegging, oral, and orgy
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Vivid DVDs can be found online for between about $20 and $25. If you like your porn dark and artistic, this one's going to be well worth the money. The movie is very well made, and the technical aspects and extras show some very good care. This release won't be for everybody, but there's no denying the care or skill that went into it.
Note to Vivid: It's amazing with releases like this that people still think of you as such a soft, weak, cuddly little couples studio. Thank you for all the care and freedom you put into this release.
