Running Time: 346 min. (144 min. on DVD 1 and 202 min. on DVD 2)

Production Date: None given

Director: Manuel Ferrara

Cast: Franceska Jaimes, Jessie Volt, Katsuni, London Keyes, and Manuel Ferrara

Audio /Video Quality: Due to the style of this series, the technical aspects aren't quite up to what one normally expects from Manuel Ferrara. The audio is clear, nicely balanced, and free of background noises. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and goes with more of a homemade style, which is where I think some people might be slightly disappointed. The picture is clear, but is shot with a mix of handheld POV shots and tripod mountings. This means there are some lighting imbalances due to the camera's automatic settings, a bit of motion, and shots where you can't always see the action the best.

The Movie: With his Raw series, Manuel Ferrara goes with more of a homemade style. The camera is often left on a tripod or other firm surface for the action while also mixing in plenty of POV shots. Each scene also starts with a quick and very natural setup of Manuel meeting up with the girl for a planned shoot.

Scene 1 Franceska Jaimes and Manuel Ferrara

Manuel starts out calling Franceska to let her know he's downstairs ready to pick her up. They chat in his car about her being back in the States and sex before she starts to give him a little show in the car running her hands around her legs and panties while also groping him through his jeans. Franceska even plays with her pussy a little before deciding to get a little crazy and pull Manuel out of his pants. She strokes him and they kiss before they decide to turn the camera off so they don't get in an accident. They continue things in the hotel elevator and make their way to their room where they kiss passionately and Franceska teases Manuel before moving in to suck and stroke his cock while he sits back in a chair. They move to a bed where Franceska starts stripping down and Manuel worships her great body before quickly moving on to fuck her missionary style before she can even strip down all the way. He rolls around to spoon Franceska before they move by the camera and he takes her from behind. Franceska lets Manuel have a little more oral action, including a bit of ass eating, before fucking her missionary style on the bed, starting with her pussy and then moving on to fuck her ass. Manuel continues to work on Franceska's ass from behind, in missionary, and in the cowgirls, holding the camera some of the time for a POV view and sometimes leaving it back on the dresser to capture the action. Manuel gabs the camera again before they move to the couch where he taps Franceska's ass from behind and lets her gape nicely for him. They move back to the bed for a bit more oral action for each of them, with Manuel capturing Franceska's oral work POV style before setting it down to pleasure her, fuck her in a few positions, and finger her pussy hard. Finally Franceska gets down to take a great facial finish and play with her pussy lightly while looking completely satisfied until the scene fades out.

Scene 2 Jessie Volt and Manuel Ferrara

Blonde Jessie poses for a few stills with Manuel around a hotel room bed and ottoman while wearing and working out of a blue tank and white shorts. He grabs the video camera to check out Jessie's great body and pretty face with some nice time admiring her fat pussy lips. Jessie rubs her lips a little for him before Manuel puts the camera back and dives in to eat her pussy, suck her tits, kiss her, and even grind against her while fully dressed. He grabs the camera and pulls out his cock for Jessie to suck and stroke, and gives her a bit of face fucking as well as letting her suck his balls and eat his ass. The camera gets set back so Manuel can spoon Jessie before she rolls on top for a cowgirl ride and lets him play with her ass. He fucks Jessie from behind by the camera and lets her suck his cock a little more while giving him some great eyes before Jessie gets back on for another cowgirl ride. Jessie sucks and strokes Manuel before guiding his cock into her ass cowgirl style and quickly moving on with a good hard pooper pounding. He sets the camera back to spoon Jessie's shitpussy and take her from behind as she lays on her stomach before rolling her on top for a reverse cowgirl assfucking. They keep the anal action going in cowgirl and missionary before taking a break for Jessie to catch her breath as Manuel admires her body. Finally she drops down to suck and stroke Manuel to a very nice facial finish complete with a solid blast to her eye.

Scene 3 London Keyes and Manuel Ferrara

Manuel starts out the second DVD picking up Asian hottie London and chatting with her about his life's resemblance to Pinky & the Brain. Soon after London's pulling his cock out of his shorts to give him some head on the side of the road. They cut things short and head to the hotel where Manuel opens up the shades on the window as London moves in to suck his cock again. They strip her down so Manuel can fuck her against the wall and window standing up before they move around the bed and floor with plenty of finger play, oral action, and cocksucking. London makes sure to mix in a bit of ass eating for Manuel as well as letting him fuck her tits, and then slides his cock into her ass cowgirl style. Manuel sets the camera down so he can spoon her holes on the bed, and they roll around giving London's ass plenty of attention including a nice reverse cowgirl ride. She sucks his cock clean of her ass and has him fuck it doggie style while mixing in plenty more oral action. Manuel keeps fucking London's ass missionary style before taking it from behind by the dresser. They move to the bathroom where he fucks her ass with her head in the toilet and cums in her mouth. London refuses to let it end there, and crawls after him to pose in the window and rub the cum over it. They move back to the bed and get in a little more oral action before London gets dressed.

After a break London kicks back in a chair and chats with Manuel about anal sex and food before they head out for a bit. They return to find their room hasn't been cleaned yet and check out the view before getting back at it on the bed. Manuel kisses London, sucks her tits, and eats her before fucking her missionary style. Manuel grabs the camera before London eagerly eats his ass, sucks his cock, and rides him cowgirl style. She mixes in plenty more oral as she rides him in reverse cowgirl and takes him in her ass back in the traditional cowgirl as well as in doggie. Finally London takes a second facial before Manuel locks her out of the room and watches her through the peephole in the hallway.

Scene 4 Katsuni and Manuel Ferrara

Katsuni starts out with the camera as Manuel drives them down the PCH through Malibu to Santa Monica. They chat quite a bit in French in the car, at a restaurant, and back at a hotel where Katsuni changes and then drops down to check out Manuel in his pants. They head to the beach and chat a bit more while walking with Katsuni playing a little in the surf before they head up to Pacific Park for a few games and rides. Things change to night vision back in the hotel room with Katsuni wearing a little sexy lingerie and moving in to pleasure Manuel orally working on his cock, balls, and asshole. She even works in a little titty fucking before finally riding him cowgirl style. Manuel also takes Katsuni from behind before she rides him cowgirl style again and lets him spoon her. Finally Katsuni works Manuel to a nice facial finish.

After Manuel looks over the beach in the morning, he comes back to Katsuni in the bed and lets her stroke his cock with her feet briefly before she moves on to lick, suck, and stroke it. Katsuni rides him cowgirl style before going back to sucking and stroking him and then lets Manuel spoon her. Manuel grabs the camera and a dildo so Katsuni can fuck herself as he fucks her face, and then moves in to tap her ass doggie style. Katsuni rides him reverse cowgirl style while biting the dildo and then giving herself a technical DP with it, as well as mixing in a bit of ass to mouth. She lays back for Manuel to spear her shitpussy missionary style as she continues to stuff her pussy with her fingers and the toy. They try unsuccessfully for a doggie style DP and go back to more cowgirl and oral play before Katsuni drops down to suck, stroke, and titty fuck Manuel to a nice pop on her tits.

Raw 8 is a really great release. I'll admit that I was more than a little apprehensive going in with a four scene movie lasting nearly six hours, but the substance and style work together here to make this one of the best releases to come out of 2011. I love the homemade movie style that Manuel uses, and having the girls play with the camera a little in places makes it all the more fun. As with most homemade movies, chemistry is all important and by now one knows that it's easier to find an honest politician than it is to find a Manuel Ferrara scene that's lacking chemistry. He starts things out very nicely with Franceska, and then adds a touch of variety due to the photo shoot opening with Jessie. I love how London's scene is split in two, as it adds a bit more chemistry, fun, and personality to the scene. Katsuni's scene is the one that might give some people problems, as not only do Manuel and Katsuni talk almost exclusively in French, but it takes them close to an hour to get to the sex. Longer lead-ins aren't uncommon in homemade porn, but normally there's a fair amount of flashing and tease that happens that doesn't really happen here. I'm not complaint about it as it does a lot to show the personality and relationship between Manuel and Katsuni, and it's something that you're not likely to even see in behind the scenes featurettes. Yes, Raw 8 is an extremely long fuck flick, but it's also overflowing with chemistry that's rarely found in mainstream adult films. I'm definitely regretting that it's taken me this long to check out this series.

The Extras: Trailers are included for twelve other Manuel Ferrara releases. In addition to a cast listing by scene, you get a photo gallery for each scene and filmographies for the entire female cast. There's also cumshot recaps and weblinks. Normally I'd think that this is more than a little light for extras, especially with a movie this long, but the style of the movie doesn't lend itself at all to either behind the scenes featurettes or extra footage. If anything, they may bring the movie down. Although the lack of extras normally brings a release down slightly for me overall, that's not happening here for just that reason.

Condom Usage: None

Final Thoughts: Buy it, and if you haven't checked out the series before, be prepared to buy more in the series as well.

Note to Manuel Ferrara / Evil Angel: You have a great style with this series. I hope you keep it going for a long time!
