Running Time :
One of the best-known films of Andrew Blake (and
yes, this is shot on glorious 35mm), Night Trips
is also his first hardcore outing.
All the typical Blake trademarks are here : Fast
cutting, beautiful women who are heavily made up
and costumized (though less excessively here than
usual), and great cinematography and lighting.
Indeed, after having been let down by EVERY shot-
on-film feature, this was the first that was both
properly developed (no extreme grain or bad color
correction) and really well shot.
You wouldn't be able to distinguish it from a
high-class commercial if you had to...
Of course, the budget was less extensive in the
old days (1989) so the settings are nothing more
than opulent mansions and swimming pools, à
la 'Miami Vice'
which makes for a distinctive 80s look.
The music, which usually sounds terrible on Blake
releases (or at least boring) is better here,
though still a bit repetitive.. be warned that
you don't get to hear any sexual sounds though
(except in one scene).
Scene 1 :
Tori Welles is the patient in a center for sexual
research, run by Randy Spears and Porsche Lynn
(don't expect any plot here though), where her
fantasies and dreams are explored.. after we see
here rubbing her pussy in the intro, the
first 'real' scene is introduced. It involves
Tanja De Vries and Mark De Bruin in a standard
The style is really involving with the dreamy
music and cutting back and forth between the
scientists, the masturbating Welles and the
couple (often seen on a computer screen linked to
Tori's neurones). Though this takes back from the
heat, at least you don't get any minute-long
After quite a few positions, we get a close-up
facial photographed in front of a blue backlight
making it look almost like a dream (which is what
it's supposed to be after all). Great stuff, and
Tanja doesn't shy away from it.
Scene 2 :
Tori again, and Peter North in a segment shot
entirely in blue monochrome. After a long stretch
of fellatio (and this woman definitely knows how
to give an erotic blowjob!) Peter gives her a
good boffing in this so-so scene that goes on for
The terrific facial almost makes up for it
though, with Tori letting him shoot his load into
her mouth and on her chin.
Scene 3 :
A lesbian scene with Porsche Lynn (who is turned
on by Tori's dreams and touches her), Tori and
Jamie Summers (now there's a really beautiful
woman), but minus any heat or interest. I'm not
that much into girl-girl and this threeway will
not change my mind.
Note that there's us eof wigs in this scene, if
you don't like that.
Scene 4 :
Shot in B & W, Tori stands beside a pool where
Victoria Paris and Ray Victory get it on in this
interracial coupling. I found this scene mostly
boring, without any original touches or passion,
so I fast-forwarded a lot.
Scene 5 :
Tori's next dream has her following two masked
people into a chic living room where they have
sex in front of her. They turn out to be Randy
Spears and Porsche Lynn (though they leave their
masks on until the end of the scene).. this scene
had a bit of mystery about it, making it more
interesting.. but Tori just standing there
without an real interaction left me wanting. It
is here that we get to hear Tori's voice during
the scene, screaming "Fuck me". I suppose this is
due to dramatic purposes (meaning that she
liberates hereself through her dreams or
Scene 6 :
The final scene is played out in the 'real' world
where Tori seduces Randy, and shows her horniness
by giving him a 3 minute (!) blowjob that really
begs belief. One of the better oral scenes, this
After licking her snatch, Randy switches gears
and pounds Ms. Welles before she sucks him off
and takes hios cum all over her chin. She licks
his cock totally clean before they kiss and teh
film is over.
This scene was a very romantic one (though no
scene is rude or even wild), just as the whole
movie is totally couples friendly (except maybe
for the facial cumshots).
The DVD :
As was to be expected, Caballero did a pretty bad
job witht his one. Though the picture quality is
surprisingly good (actually, much better
than 'Dream Quest' for instance), the audio is a
bit muffled, and we get NO extras. Not even
Instead, we get a phone-sex ad ('Get your own
whore!' or something.. really great) and the well-
known chapter selection menu, which actually
jumps to diferent TITLES for each scene.
While almost every one should know that by now,
it still bugs me. All in all, the DVD is much
better than 'Night Trips 2' though, which was
Other than that, there is an error on the disc,
since the first title actually goes on for 6
minutes after the picture has turned to a black
Sloppy job, folks!!
The movie itself, though not 'hot' by today's
standards, is very well done, and would make for
comofrtable viewing with your SO (unless you
happen to be Pat Buchanan or George W. Bush, that
is.. whoops! Not supposed to say that)
