This is a fantastic film that includes a lot of variety in sex and is visually striking. The plot is enough without being distracting, and the music adds to the ambiance rather than being irritating. Overall a great porn for those that like things a little gothic or alternative in general.
Great scenes and costuming
Gorgeous women who aren't plastic looking
Women look at the camera during scenes
Strange artsy montages

extremely useful review
Technical Information
This was produced by the studio Ninn Worx, and directed by Michael Ninn. The stars are Anais, Angel Cassidy, Rayveness, Justine, Brett Rockman, Billy Glide, Nick Manning, Tyce Bune, Violet Blue, and Wanda Curtis. It was produced in 2003 and released in 2004.

It surprisingly isn't terribly dated. The film quality is a bit lacking, but the camera effects they use actually masks it pretty well. There are some things about costuming and film quality that show it is a bit older, but I didn't find it distracting.

The actors routinely actually seem to be enjoying themselves. I may be easily fooled, but I could swear there are several real orgasms happening. Even if they aren't real, it's at least not blatantly false. The women aren't plastic either which is a huge plus for me.

The music is gothicy techno, but it is very well chosen. It creates a great ambiance to the scenes. It does randomly cut out and there are times where there is no background music at all which I found slightly jarring.
Sets and Costuming
The sets fit the scene and don't look cheap or thrown together, nor is the costuming typical porn star wear. The women are wearing heavy makeup, but it achieves a goth look rather than a porn star look.

The concept of this is that the main character is a fallen angel banished to earth because she was filled with lust. There isn't a huge overarching push of plot. More like a dash of it. Every scene doesn't drive the plot, but the way this is designed ti doesn't have to.

At about the 1 hour mark, the plot becomes the focus and the visual becomes very... artsy. Lots of montages and weirdness, but it is still well within the theme of the movie. It is a large interlude of not sex, so be aware.

Here is a list of what types of acts are performed in this porn in order of appearance:

Female Masturbation
Penis in Vagina Sex
Lesbian Sex (Fingering,Oral, Light Spanking, Anal fingering, Penetration with Toy
MMF Threesome (Double Penetration)

Bonus Features
This disc included Behind the Scenes and Photo Gallery.

* This porn has a really long introduction that is a montage of all of the scenes. It's explicit and a bit weird due to the fact that there is no context and it is pretty long.

* The actresses have a habit of looking directly at the camera which breaks the scene for me.

*Long montages that don't have a lot of plot or sex to them. It ends up being very distracting. Most of these are in the second half of the disc.

*Can get very artsy which may be an issue for some.
To do porn reviews, I watch the entire movie by myself. Without a play partner, I normally get off once near the beginning and just watch the rest of it through. This was the exception. I had to get myself off 3 times. For all of its artsy-ness, it really did it for me.

I think I have my new favorite porn.
Follow-up commentary
I still love this. I love that the sex is raw and sensual by turns. I love that it has acts that aren't the safe norm of most "couples" porn. Sure it's pretty artsy in some places, but it is still my favorite.
