I really don't think so

The Gate looks like a horror porn on the outside, but actually deals with mental illness in a very poor way. But it's shot very well and acted wonderfully.

I love a good porn when it is done well and deals with its issues in a very self aware manner.

I picked up The Gate in the hopes of finding something a bit different. It stars Alexa and Joel Lawrence along with a number of others. It was released in 2001 by Wicked Pictures. This is a two disc set. One disc is the film, the other is all the extra features such as deleted and extended scenes, making of, bloopers and other things.

I grabbed this one because it looked like it may be a mix of horror and porn. I say that it looked like it. And all the things that I was reading on other sites made it look that way. But guess what, it isn't at all. It actually deals with mental illness. And to be honest, it deals with mental illness in a very bad light. It almost is making fun of it with the way they deal with the characters that have different problems.

However, it is acted wonderfully. Many of actors actually take on their parts very well.

The sex is hot, but a bit vanilla. There is a bit of d/s talk, but that's about it. The d/s talk is very femdom, but the guy would spank her. Not something many femdoms I know would let happen. But I don't think that the producers even know that much about d/s at all, so that makes it more funny than bad.

It is shot very well and the editing is very fluid and easy to watch even if you are in that hazy sex state of mind that a lot of us get into.

There is a number of original songs in the porn too. That's something that I haven't seen that much in porn and it's a nice touch, even if the songs aren't that great.

So, hot sex, but handled their subject very poorly.
