The Short Story

Initial Expectations: Alt porn doesn't do a lot for me, but with the lineup of female talent here I can't help but have a little hope here.

Initial Reaction: It's been a while since I've looked forward to a movie being done as much as I was here.

Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting the more mainstream side of alt-porn

Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a movie where most of the people look like they're enjoying themselves

The Technical Stuff

Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects show care, but aren't necessarily good. The audio never has any background noises, but also isn't always easy to hear. The video is presented in non-anamorphic widescreen and is on the artistic side of things. There's a touch of grain in places, as well as a bit of movement that doesn't always appear to be intentional. There's a fair amount of filters and off lighting, and although it makes much of the movie look poor for me, it appears to be completely intentional and does at times play into the trippy feel of the movie.

Music: The music has a bit of a trippy edge to it that fits the movie well and is normally well balanced with the rest of the audio.

Menus: The main menu blends a still from the cover with a little trippy animation and clips from the movie for a first impression that seems very fitting for the movie. The chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a small clip for each scene and a title for the scene.

The Feature

Vonn Fink sets his eyes on the classic Alice in Wonderland to inspire him with this release. Charlotte plays the main character who makes her way through a wonderland complete with a Cheshire cat, mad hatter, Queen of Hearts, and much more.

Scene 1 – Charlotte Stokely and Barry Scott

After stumbling through an alley looking like she barley knows which direction is up, blonde Charlotte finds doorman Barry dressed all in black complete with shades sitting back in a chair. He tries waving her off, but she insists on getting it on and drops down to suck his cock. She gives him plenty of dead eyes as she sucks and strokes him, and finally lets him dribble out a very small pop on her tits.

This scene did nothing for me. I hated the style going into it and there was nothing about the scene that really made it seem like Charlotte or Barry were really enjoying themselves. I guess it does fit the style of a back alley blowjob, but being a person who doesn't care to watch blowjobs and prefers sex where people can enjoy it, there was nothing for me here. This scene was not a good start to the movie for me.

Scene 2 – Charlotte Stokely and Brian Surewood

After going inside, Charlotte lays back on a couch looking like she's having a bad trip as Brian, with his hair slicked back and his beard let loose, moves in to make his way around her pussy and thighs while she pulls on his beard and kisses him a little. She sucks him from limp to hard kneeling in front of him and bending over next to him before climbing up to ride him cowgirl style. Brian also takes Charlotte doggie style before having her ride him reverse cowgirl style and pile driving her. Finally he lets her have a facial to wrap things up.

This scene also did nothing for me. The looks Charlotte gave throughout the scene were downright disturbing, and the most likable thing I could think of her going through with it was a very bad drug trip. Brian does give her a good hard dick to work with, but that just isn't enough here since there's no chemistry to the scene whatsoever. I was glad when this scene ended.

Scene 3 – Charlotte Stokely, Laurie Vargas, Leah Jaye, and Justyn Snyder

Charlotte finds Justyn in a dark suit with a purple hat and a white feather enjoying his smoke before she joins him on his couch and lets him play with her pussy and tits. She moves off to watch as brunettes Laurie and Leah team up on him orally while barely getting any oral attention in return. Justyn fucks Leah from behind before the girls work on each other orally quickly, and then lets Leah up for a reverse cowgirl ride. Laurie lays back for a little missionary work with Leah sitting on her face before the scene fades out without anything close to a pop or the scene looking finished.

Not surprisingly, this scene didn't do much of anything for me. I will give it credit for having the people actually look like they're having a moderately tolerable time, but there was nothing close to a spark for the action. Jumping from Charlotte to the other girls also didn't do anything for me, and once again Charlotte's dead look brought things crashing down whenever she was on screen. This scene's a step up, but not by much.

Scene 4 – Katarina Kat, Regan Reese, and Alec Knight

Blonde Katarina and brunette Regan start out the next scene kissing on a large round ottoman with Katarina in black shoes and a large belt while Regan is in white porno pumps and a white bikini bottom. Katarina lies back to let Regan finger her and starts stroking and sucking Alec's cock that appears in front of her. He moves around so Regan can help Katarina suck his cock as Charlotte watches before fucking Regan from behind. The girls suck him a little more before Katarina gets up for a reverse cowgirl ride with Regan riding Alec's face before they trade place with Regan opting for the traditional cowgirl ride. Alec also fucks Regan missionary style as the girls sixty-nine a bit with Katarina finally letting Alec nut in her mouth and then spitting it onto Regan's pussy to rub in and lick a little more.

This scene is good enough that I felt like I was watching a different movie. That isn't to say that it's great, but the girls actually look like they're having a good time and there's actual chemistry among the group. As usual Katarina looks fantastic and there's nice vocals all around from the group. This is a nicely above average scene that was only held back for me by the style.

Scene 5 – Page Morgan, Alec Knight, Dane, and a couple phantom cocks

Page, in a black wig with a red corset and white skirt, plays with herself and sucks and strokes a pair of cocks that protrude through glory holes amongst plenty of dildos. Finally she takes a pop on her tits and a pop on her mouth.

All I could think of here was “Thank God for the remote control!”. Not being a fan of blowjobs (and especially glory holes) nor alt porn, this scene left nothing at all to be excited about, and I think I actually heard by cock start to snore. The “Queen of Hearts” thing was a neat idea, but once the glory holes entered the picture I was out of it. This is another scene that did nothing for me and I was thrilled when it was done.

Scene 6 – Lorena Sanchez, Selina Draagen, Alec Knight, and Icarus Corpse

As Lorena sits between a pair of guys in camo fatigues and gas masks, Selina caresses her from behind and moves around to help Lorena suck the cocks before Lorena moves over to start riding Icarus reverse cowgirl style. Selina joins her for a reverse cowgirl ride on Alec before they mix in a little cowgirl action and Selina lets Alec bone her from behind. Finally the girls go back to each sucking their man and each is rewarded with a facial finish.

This scene is almost as good as Katarina and Regan's. The girls get into the action quite well, but the gas masks and fatigues didn't do anything for me. A little more interaction between the girls would also have been nice, although they do get into their partners nicely. This is a pretty good final scene.

Skinn Kandi is a very creative alt-porn take on Alice in Wonderland. That said, the style of the movie just isn't for me. I can appreciate the touches of the story to set up each scene, but there was very little to draw me into the movie. Regan Reese and Katarina Kat's taking on Alec Knight and Lorena Sanchez and Selina Draagen taking on the guys in fatigues were easily the best scenes in the movie, and actually had chemistry and a feeling like the cast was enjoying themselves. On the other end of the spectrum is everything involving Charlotte Stokely. Normally I like Charlotte, but everything about her in the movie made her seem like she was having a really bad drug trip, and there are few things that can be a greater hell than a bad drug trip. Twenty family members packed into a motorhome going cross country with half of them under the age of eight would be a preferable trip to a bad drug trip, and there were times watching Skinn Kandi when I wished I would have been allowed to be number twenty one on that motorhome. But as I said before, I'm not an alt-porn fan, and whether you like alt-porn or not, one cannot deny that Vonn Fink has a very creative eye. I do like how he uses some of that to make alt-porn a little friendlier and more professional than some other alt-porn directors, but it still just doesn't do much for me. If you're an alt-porn fan Skinn Kandi might work for you, but it barley did anything for me.

The Extra Stuff

Trailers are included for Appetite for Destruction, Test Drive, SeXXXpose Nikk Benz, SeXXXpose Lexi Marie, SeXXXpose Brittney Skye, SeXXXpose Tiffany Taylor, American MILF, Teradise Island: Anal Fever, Reign of Tera 2, Decadence, Stimula, China Blue, and the Virtual Tera Patrick 3D PC game. The photo gallery lasts just over two minutes with about six seconds per good looking snapshot. There's also a behind the scenes featurette and internet information.

The behind the scenes featurette lasts about thirteen and a quarter minutes. Charlotte starts things out introducing herself while looking moderately stoned before the opening credits, and then talks about the movie a little after the credits run. Brian Surewood is next, who talks about the movie, working for TeraVision, and Vonn Fink before having a few words with Charlotte there as they start to get it on. There's a little fun around the gloryholes before a little time with Charlotte talking about the mad hatter and with Brian and Charlotte talking about openings you should take. Finally, there's a bit of time around the couch with Selina and Lorena. This is a pretty good behind the scenes featurette, and with the different players here I really wish there would have been the added touch of identifying the players as they appear in the featurette.

The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff

Themes: Straight, alt porn, oral, group, lesbian, masturbation, and glory holes

Raincoat Factor: High

Condom Usage: None

The Bottom Line:

Currently, many of TeraVision's DVDs can be found online for between about $19 and $25 with several stores offering them for about $20. If you like trippy, alt-porn, and Alice in Wonderland, this one's probably going to be well worth the money for you. I'm not an alt-porn fan, so this one didn't do much for me even though I can appreciate the creativity in this one. The technical aspects are okay and there's a bit of effort put into the extras. This isn't my kind of movie, but TeraVision does put some nice effort into the DVD.

Note to TeraVision: If you're going to use the widescreen format, please take your support to the anamorphic transfer the format deserves.
