The Short Story
Initial Expectations: I've been extremely impressed with what I've seen from Gary Orona behind the camera. I'm going into this one with very high expectations.
Initial Reaction: It was filled with way too many distractions for me to get too into it.
Who Should Watch It : Fans of the original Silence of the Lambs
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a sexy adult feature
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty good. The audio is clear and well balanced for the most part, although the music is often too loud and never seems to know where it wants to be in the overall audio scheme. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks pretty good. Most of the movie is very nicely lit, crisp, and with a smooth hand on the camera, but there's a fair amount of green screen backgrounds that really stood out to me and held things back.
Music: The music severely held the movie back. It was often way too loud for my tastes and could never seem to decide what style it wanted to be. This release had some of the worst handled music in an adult film that I've heard in a very long time.
Menus: The main menu nicely blends a few stills from the movie as well as working in a little animation for a decent first impression. The chapter menu is basic and lets you choose a scene based on a clip of each scene and a scene number, but does so with a nice sense of style.
The FeatureOdds are you know the story of Jonathan Demme's Best Picture winning Silence of the Lambs where young FBI Agent Clarice Starling has to deal with cannibalistic mass murderer Hannibal Lector in order to bring down a serial killer at large. Here, Gary Orona gives the story the adult treatment while trying to remain very faithful to the original story.
|Scene 1 – Isis Taylor and Kagney Linn Karter|
After Kagney gets home and Isis notices the cum in her hair they chat about her day and Isis moves in for a kiss while refusing to let Kagney head off to take a shower and clean up. They help each other trip down as they kiss and go after each other's tits before Isis lays back to let Kagney eat her cunt. Isis eats Kagney's pierced and shaved cooter in return before fucking her with a large purple double dong. Kagney fucks Isis back with the toy before they share it between their pussies on all fours. Finally they close things with a kiss.
This is a pretty good scene. There's good chemistry to start things out as well as a nice balance between the girls. The action is nicely captured, but Kagney seems to struggle with her wig a bit in the scene. This is a decent sexual start to the movie.
|Scene 2 – Alexa Nicole and Ben English|
As part of an agreement for his cooperation, Ben gets to bang cute brunette superfan Alexa. She teases Ben and lets him grope her tits and pussy from behind before laying back on his bed so he can eat her pussy. They work Ben out of his orange jumpsuit so Alexa can suck his cock with Ben mixing in a bit of face fucking for her. They go back to his bed for a cowgirl ride before taking her from behind. Finally Ben pulls out so spray his seed over Alexa's face.
This is another decent scene. Alexa works the tease nicely and puts out some good energy and vocals. The action is also captured well for the dark and limited location of the cell, but the scene seemed a little on the short side. Ben and Alexa turn out a nice scene that works into the overall movie quite well.
|Scene 3 – Tanya Tate and Rocco Reed|
After a discussion with Ben, smoking hot Brit Tanya finds herself more than turned on and pulls warden Rocco into a storage room for a bit of action. She sits on his lap and lets him play with and suck her tits before they strip down a little more and Rocco has her sit in the chair for him to eat her pussy. Tanya sucks his cock in return before riding it reverse cowgirl style, and then lets Rocco take her from behind. Finally Tanya drops down for a nice pop over her tongue.
This is a pretty hot scene. Tanya is fantastic as the bitchy senator and looks smoking hot from start to finish. Her getting turned on to start the scene is great, and the action is nicely captured with decent chemistry once again. This is another pretty good scene, but once again I couldn't help but wish it would have lasted a little longer.
|Scene 4 – Riley Evans and Mark Wood|
After having slutty blonde Riley lotion herself up, Mark takes her out of her green screen created hole to tongue her holes from behind as she urges him on. Mark lays back for Riley to suck and stroke his cock with Riley trying to talk her way out of it and seeming a bit disinterested. She lays back for him to fuck her missionary style before having him take her from behind. Riley also lets him spear her shitpussy as she lays on her side and back before dropping down for a decent pop over her tongue that mostly misses it. Later he fucks her from behind with a dildo on a stick.
This is an okay at best scene. Riley's trashy look and Mark being more than a bit of a freak just didn't work for me. Although Riley's disinterest does work with the story and characters, it doesn't really lead to a hot scene. She takes it up the ass very well and the scene moves along nicely, but I just couldn't get into this scene that well.
|Scene 5 – Kagney Linn Karter and Anthony Rosano|
Finally, Kagney gets it on with boss Anthony in a hotel room. She strips down for him and touches herself inside her panties before Anthony moves in to slide off her panties and eat her muffin. He comes up to kiss her mouth and tits before Kagney sucks and strokes his cock in return. They move on to sixty-nine before Kagney moves around to ride him cowgirl style. She lays back for Anthony to fuck her missionary style and finally takes his load over her tongue.
This is an okay final scene. There's some poor editing to start the scene out, with Kagney stripping down to her bra before sitting on a bed and then having an editing cut where she's sitting on the bed with her top on again, and that definitely left me a little extra distracted to start it out. I was also distracted once again by Kagney's wig, and the chemistry just didn't seem to be there. I had a very hard time getting into this scene, and it ended up never quite working as well as it seemed it should for me.
Official Silence of the Lambs Parody has plenty of effort put into it, but it never seemed to completely work for me. The story is nicely done for the most part, and the casting is also handled quite well. The problems for me were the sex and the little details. The sex is decent, but I was never drawn into it that much. The music often interfered with it for me and the setups never made the sex seem that sexy. The bigger problem for me was the details. Kagney's wig almost always seemed fake and a little off, and the hair for most of the guys was even worse with Ben English's hair looking almost like it was rejected from a Kung Fu movie. There's quite a bit of green screen work for the backgrounds, and although I can definitely appreciate the cost and ease factor of using it, it also seemed just a little off and also distracted me. Riley and Mark's scenes around the hole seemed completely off, and were to the point that it drew out the blue screen aspects in other parts of the movie as well. Overall, Official Silence of the Lambs Parody works about as well as one would expect an adult version of the classic psychological thriller to work, for better or worse.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery lasts about four and a half minutes. There's also cumshot recaps, ten minuets of trailers, and a behind the scenes featurette (which is sadly listed in the chapter menu where many people might miss it rather than on the main menu with the other extras).
The behind the scenes featurette lasts a little under ten minutes. After a quick sex shot with Kagney and Isis, you get a fun outtake with Mike Quasar in the prison. There's a little of Riley's sex being shot as well as her working with Mark before moving back to Kagney and Isis as they talk about the wig and outtakes. There's a little more with Quaze, Mark, and Riley as well. This is a pretty average behind the scenes featurette. Kagney talking about wig and outtakes is the most engaging part of the featurette, and most of it seemed average at best. This featurette adds a little to the overall package but not a lot.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, lesbian, interracial, toys, rimming (male > female), and anal
Raincoat Factor: Medium
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Zero Tolerance DVDs can be found online for between about $15 and $25 with most stores offering them for under $20. Rent this one before you pay the big bucks. It has some nice effort put into it, but just never quite worked for me as well as some of Orona's other works have.
Note to Zero Tolerance: It's nice to see you going after some bigger productions like this. Thank you.
