Running Time: 99 min.
Production Date: 5 / 2001
Director: Darren Kaye
Cast: Monica Mayhem, Samantha Sterling, Sharon Wild, Envy, Nancy Vee, Rafe, Pier Evergreen, and Steve Taylor
Initial Expectations: Aliens with a sonic sex ray? Count me in!
Initial Reaction: Itís very different from the way the cover sounds. Although itís not extremely erotic at times, thereís something I really like about it.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody looking for something really different and artistic
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who wants your typical balls to the wall sex or romantic couples sex
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are all messed up, but in a good way. The audio is almost completely dubbed, and done in a way that gives the entire feature a strange and eerie feel. The feel is helped out by the video, which is mostly done in non-anamorphic widescreen. Itís very artistic and mixes together color and black and white shots, as well as sepia tones. It also has varying speeds and a little bit of grain. All combined, the technical aspects set the mood of the feature as well as the camera work does.
Music: The music has a bit of a techno feel and is frequently a little on the loud side.
Menus: The menus are very basic and similar to the standard VCA menus. The chapter menu lists the scenes by chapter number.
The Feature: After destroying Verus 7, aliens are heading for earth. Iím not sure, but maybe theyíve heard that Earth girls are easy. Who knows. Regardless, theyíve set their sights on Earth and more specifically Monica Mayhem, who seems like a dang good target. They do something to her, while letting her get away without the anal probe for some reason, and leave Monica not really knowing where reality is anymore. Throughout almost all of the movie, Monica is present and diddling herself at high speed.
Envy, who sadly hasnít been seen too much lately, starts out drawing the short straw to get paired with Steve Taylor. She gives him a great looking blowjob with some amazing eyes before getting eaten and fucked. In an odd sexual twist, it seems like almost 95% of the scene is oral, with the majority of that being Envyís amazing blowjob. She takes a decent pop on her front to finish things off. Envy looks great here and throws some great energy into the scene, but with such a strong oral emphasis it almost seems wasted here.
Samantha Sterling starts out doggie style on a bed while Rafe, who starts out wearing a gas mask, fucks her. They work through several more positions, and leave few of the standard positions untouched, before Rafe pops on her tits. Once again thereís some good energy to the scene, but the overall style of the feature gives it a fairly cold feel.
Monica Mayhem and Sharon Wild start out the next scene in a wresting ring. Monica starts out clearly in control and working on Sharon before the scene jumps to Nancy Vee and Rafe. Rafe starts out working on Nancy and then uses a toy on her before Nancy disappears. The scene moves to Sharon taking on Rafe, starting with a blowjob and moving on to let him fuck her doggie style and in the ever romantic pile driver. Sharon takes a decent pop in the mouth to finish things. Itís very artistic, but at the cost of a lot of the heat in the scene. I was also disappointed since Nancy Vee wasnít in much of the scene, and Iíve always kind of enjoyed watching her.
Monica Mayhem and Sharon Wild hook up again for the next scene, and start off diddling themselves for each other. They also give each other a hand before Sharon gets a little more aggressive with a silver vibe. Of course, Monica isnít going to just take without giving Sharon a little silver vibe payback, but there doesnít seem to be a definite ending after that. Instead the scene feels very cut off, almost as if Mr. Kaye ran out of film.
Monica takes on Pier Evergreen next. She goes from sucking his cock directly to riding him. They continue through quite a few different positions, including a standing fuck before Monica takes Pierís dick droppings on her great natural tits. Monica seems really into the scene, and gives his cock a good suck after itís emptied on her chest. Thereís some good chemistry here, and I really got into this scene. Maybe I was just getting used to the style, but this seemed like one great scene!
Finally, Monica watches as Samantha Sterling takes on Rafe and Steve Taylor. The guys warm Samantha up before she gets into the middle. She stays there sucking while getting fucked until ending things with some nice oral action and a pop on her tits. Throughout the ending pop shot sequence everybody seems to get into pleasuring themselves, and seem very turned on watching each other as well. Itís a pretty hot scene to end things with, and although not physically nasty, it somehow still had a kind of nasty feel to it.
Hysteria ends up feeling kind of like what Iíd think Antonio Passoliniís movies would look like while drunk, riding a sugar buzz, and dropping acid all at the same time. Although the major strengths of the movie are that itís very artistic and interesting, itís also the featureís downfall since these same things also kill some of the sexual energy and erotic feel. I normally donít care at all for dubbing and playing with the video during sex scenes. Instead, I normally want to watch people fuck. Hysteria does a ton of technical things I normally hate to see in sex scenes, but somehow makes me really like the movie. Hysteria is very cool, but I donít know it everybody will find it that sexy. Itís definitely worth checking out if youíre looking for something very different.
Extras: Trailers are included for Touch Me, Dark Garden, and The Devil in Miss Jones 6. The photo gallery lasts about two minutes with about seven seconds per very nice looking full screen photo. Rather than giving the standard bios, thereís a bio for Monica Mayhem, a few extra snapshots of her, a list of her other VCA features, and a link to her scenes. Actually, thereís a listing to everybodyís scenes along with telling you what scene number it is. Finally, thereís an option that gives you a wall to wall sex viewing option to cut out all the fast forwarding and your standard internet and contact information.
Themes: Straight, masturbation, oral, lesbian, and group
Raincoat Factor: Either very low or very high depending on your tastes
Overall: Currently, most of VCAís new releases can be found online for between $20 and $25. Although I really liked this one, Iíd strongly suggest renting it before buying it. Itís very unique and artistic, but I donít think it would work well at all as whacking material. The transfer and extras are okay, but nothing too special.
Note to VCA: This feature seemed like a bit of a risk to make. Thank you for taking the risk!
