Initial Reaction: Itís easily forgotten.
Who Should Watch It : Fans of Melissa Monet
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting something that feels unique in any way
Audio /Video Quality: The audio isnít too bad. Itís balanced decently, but there are a few comments between the cast and crew that are left in. The video, however, leaves much to be desired. Thereís plenty of shadows, but even more noticeable is the amount of grain. Granted, the movie is from the mid nineties, but Iíve seen classic pornos with less grain than this. Thereís also a fair amount of camera shake through the feature.
Music: The keeps a slight soft rock feel throughout the movie, but does bring in a few other styles. It varies a little in balance throughout the movie, but rarely overpowers the action.
Menus: The menus leave absolutely everything to be desired. The main menu has no animation and there isnít even a chapter menu.
The Feature: After Ona Zee catches her daughter Melissa Money with her on again off again boyfriend Sean Rider, she shoots both of them. Afterwards, Ona relates the sordid story of her life and her daughters. Everyoneís known that Melissa had been a problem for a long time, but the cops are about to find out a lot more than what they knew.
Sean Rider and Melissa Monet start things out in the first scene. They slowly kiss and grope their way across each other before Sean licks her snatch from behind. She returns the favor with a bit of knob gobbliní before letting Sean spoon her pussy. They move on through a bit of cowgirl and doggie before Sean decorates Melissaís ass.
This is an average at best scene. The camera often seemed just a little off, and there were plenty of shadows that kept the good parts hidden. Shadows can sometimes be used to enhance scenes, but it never did it here. Thereís some decent chemistry, but it just wasnít enough to save this scene.
Kirsty Waay and Rayveness get it on in the second scene. They play with each other lightly before Kristy buries her face, fingers, and a vibe in Rayvenessí pussy, and thankfully not at the same time. Rayveness gives Kirsty a good tongue lashing and fingering in return. She also breaks out a good sized dildo before they finish things up kissing passionately.
This is a pretty decent scene, but nothing outstanding. Kirsty and Rayveness seem to be into each other pretty well, but the camera doesnít always capture it too well.
Maid Crystal Gold and butler Tony Montana get it on in the next scene as Melissa Monet give them directions. Crystal sits on the counter while Tony shoves ice cubes in her pussy. They move on with some mixed fruit and share a banana as he eats her pussy and licks and fingers her ass. She has Crystal wash Tonyís privates with the kitchen sprayer as she sucks him, and lets her work in a bit of ice and mixed fruit. Since his ass got good and clean from the sprayer, Crystal also gives Tony an ice cube before fingering her ass. Finally Melissa commands him to fuck her, so he fucks her from behind and works on her with a jackrabbit vibe while licking her ass. Crystal takes it in each of her holes missionary style, as well as finishing things up with Tony boning her ass from behind and giving her a nice pop on her tongue.
This is a pretty darn good scene, and easily the best in the movie It still has the same limitations as the others, but more importantly it shows a fair amount of creativity. Very few scenes use food in them, which isnít always a bad thing since there are some health concerns, but this one does it just right! Crystal and Tony both seem to enjoy the things that set this scene apart from others, and it makes this scene a winner despite the technical limitations.
Melissa Money and Steve Drake hook up for the penultimate scene. They exchange oral favors before getting on to the main event. Melissa rides Steve cowgirl style before letting him bone her from behind and missionary style. Finally, he decorates her nicely natural tits.
This scene seemed almost completely forgettable to me. Throughout most of it I felt like I was just watching the opening scene again. Thereís an extra position and the order is mixed up, but other than that, there was nothing to separate it form the other scene.
Alec Metro and Kirsty Waay finish things up. They kiss before he gropes her and works his way down to tongue and finger her. Kirsty reciprocates with some very nice head before letting Alec give it to her from behind. They keep things going missionary style before Alec decorates her chest.
This scene doesnít give too much new or different. Itís very average in most every way. The biggest thing that sets this scene apart from others is that the camera seems more concerned with Alec Metroís ass than anything else during the missionary position.
Scorched is a very average porno. The story is okay at best, with many of the sex scenes feeling shoved into it to make a porno. Thereís some nice chemistry and energy in the sex scenes, but only Crystal Gold and Tony Montanaís scene stands out. Crystal and Tony bring in some nice touches that help it stand apart from the rest of the movie, as well as many other movies. Iím sure that fans of Melissa Money will probably like this movie much more than I did, but to me, Scorched is extremely forgettable.

Overall: Currently, Scorched can be found online for between $7 and $25, with few stores offering it in between. If you absolutely have to have this one, make sure you get it at the low end. The movie is forgettable, the technical aspects are lacking, and there isnít anything really worth mentioning for extras.
Note to New Machine: Itís great to see you releasing your back catalogue on DVD. Itís better to see that stores can offer them for the very low price they deserve with the job youíre doing on them.
