Martin and Laura Brodie (Mike Horner and Linda Roberts) and their children Tiffany and Brad (Haley Paige and Jack Venice) live on a nice quiet conservative street. Then Az and Lily Infernato (Randy Spears and Nikki Hunter) move in across the street. After the arrival of the Infernato's the families on the Brodie's street start finding themselves loosening up sexually.

The New Neighbors is presented with an English 2.0 Stereo track, which sounds good. There are some portions where the audio is heavily on one speaker and not the other but that appears to have been an mixing choice and not a problem with the presentation. There isn't any foreign language or subtitle options available for the feature film.

The New Neighbors is presented in non-anamorphic widescreen in the 1.85:1 aspect ratio. I'm not sure why they didn't go the extra mile and make the picture anamorphic. For most of the film the picture looks beautiful, crisp and clear with beautiful colors and nary a blemish or defect. However, during the final orgy scene pixels are present. I'm not sure why they skimped on the bit rate there as it distracts from an otherwise flawless video presentation.

Special Features:
There are a few extras included on the disc. There is a four minute trailer for the feature film. There are also two photo galleries included on the disc. One which is easy to access that contains 33 stills on a track. There is also a second hidden one that contains ten minutes worth of stills by Red Ezra that is also on a track. Finally, there is dark sounds to enlighten your fucking, which is an audio track of piano music with a video of a burning fireplace.

Disc Design/Navigation:
The disc is designed with beautiful animated menus with music that are easy to navigate and give a creepy feeling going into the film. There are eight chapters available from the chapter menu. Each one is identified by a video clip and a scene name. These are the only chapter stops contained within the film.

General Review:
The New Neighbors is a strong debut feature film from Sllab by director Frank Castle. While not perfect, The New Neighbors is nonetheless a very entertaining film that doesn't disappoint in regards to either the sexuality or the plot. Frank Castle has made a film reminiscent of what Kirdy Stevens was famous for making with a slightly darker theme to it. Think Taboo with demons and religious themes and you'll have a general idea of The New Neighbors. The story is fun and doesn't fall too deeply into the dark aspects of the story yet enough of a demon tale remains for this to make for nice Halloween viewing. The story is well developed and exists past just connecting the sex scenes together.

The sex scenes fit right in with the plot, working hand-in-hand with it, and actually enhance the story instead of working against it. Despite having a limited budget, Frank Castle and director of photography Jack Remy have done a great job combining interior and exterior shots to make a nice looking film. There is a glaring mistake that I can't believe the editor let slip through in the Linda Roberts/Nikki Hunter sex scene. There is a point where the camera pulls back to reveal another one of the cameras in the frame. It is only there for a few seconds, but it really pulls the viewer out of the film and back to reality.

The film is well cast with some power hitters on the male side, Randy Spears, Steven St. Croix, Tommy Gunn and Mike Horner have proven themselves in the past not only to be high caliber swordsmen but also to be true actors as well, doing a great job with their characters. The same is true here. The film also features great cast members on the female side, most of which I've never managed to see before. One of my favorite casting choices was Linda Roberts, who fit her part perfectly and appears to be rather new to the industry. The only casting choice that I didn't like was Jack Venice. Not because I don't like him, or didn't think that he did a good job in his role, but because of the presence of his bullet belt tattoo on his leg. I've never liked that tattoo and find it very distracting during sex scenes.

The cast members also stay in character during the sex scenes, which helped the eroticism built by the film. The sex scenes are hot and offer variety from one to the next. The best aspect about them is they aren't cookie cutter scenes, where by the end of the film you know what will happen as far as the sex acts that occur, and in what order they will occur. The only aspect about them that I wasn't the happiest with was that they all ended with facials. I know facials are the current big thing in porn, but I'd like people to cum in different places from time to time, not just all over the girls face. The sexual themes in the film are vaginal and anal sex with blow jobs, pussy eating, lesbianism, vaginal toy use, anilingus, pussy fingering, hand jobs, female masturbation, male masturbation, DP and orgy. There are no condoms used during any of the sex scenes.

Parting Thoughts:
The New Neighbors isn't a perfect film, however despite it's flaws, it is a fun and entertaining film. Viewers that don't like plots and viewers that require that anal sex be present in every scene will want to skip this title. Viewers who enjoy feature films for more than just the sex will want to check this title out.
