Extra's: I usually don't find many extras on the releases of smaller companies. They tend to barely be able to provide the feature so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that this DVD had a 20.5-minute long Behind the Scenes feature with some bloopers. It had a lot of little humorous bits in it although watching Brijaye shit herself was nasty (in a gross way). There was also a photogallery but I've never cared much for those and don't mind saying so. My biggest complaint was probably the forced spam at the beginning of the DVD. They listed this as an extra and unlike Vivid releases, you can't scan through it. Booo!
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, the current industry standard these days. The fleshtones were accurate and the compression artifacts not too frequent with a bit of grain appearing from time to time. The video noise was reliant on the lighting which varied a lot from shot to shot and overall, I'd have to say the picture looked a bit better than average most of the time (for a gonzo movie at least). The audio was presented in stereo English but there was no separation between the channels and the dynamic range was limited with the vocals being too low in some cases. The cheesy music at the beginning of each scene wasn't horrible but I don't expect it to win any awards without major dough spent advertising in certain magazines.

Body of Review: With all the companies in porn these days, even a seasoned veteran reviewer like myself has difficulty keeping up at times with all the players in the industry. There are many reasons why people move from company to company and why new companies start up but you generally only hear the sanitized version of what took place so you learn to take what's said with a grain or two of salt. The latest release from a new company, Acid Rain, is Give Me Gape, a series of gonzo vignettes where the director talks to the cast on a regular basis. If you like anal sex and gaping assholes, you'll probably want to give this one a look. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were harmed in the making of this release:
Scene One: Shayna, a redhead with ample curves and a stripper-style outfit, masturbated on a lounge chair by the pool under the bright afternoon sun. The camera work was varied and shot from inside the house as well as on the porch itself. Steve and Manuel, a porn industry tag team of wide acclaim, beckoned her inside where they promptly gave her something to fill her mouth, with deep throating action and gagging to please the audience. They alternated between screwing her and getting oral, going to anal fairly quickly and then a DP (or two). She got to clean their cocks orally and while her energy level wasn't very high, the scene wasn't bad. In this case, her gape wasn't the widest or the longest lasting but it gave me pause when thinking about her future wearing diapers. It ended when they splooged on her face, with her continuing to suck them off for more fun.
Scene Two: Vanessa, a lean brunette with a fetish outfit pranced around and came inside the house to find Manuel handcuffed to the bedposts with tape across his mouth. Apparently, he had been a bad boy and she was going to teach him a lesson. She set him free in order to serve his sentence, and her, orally and then rubbing her body. She then commuted his sentence and sucked his penis with some of the high-energy oral that she has become known for, taking him in deep and spitting for added lubrication. She ordered him about as he boned her pussy and ass, taking the anal much slower than an anal queen would. Her gape was pretty fair but didn't last long, making me think she isn't used to a lot of anal in her life. His load wasn't that big this time but she took it well in this pretty fair scene.
Scene Three: Vicky, one of the hottest anal queens in recent years, proved that she had what it takes to suck seed in the porn industry when she took on the massive Lee in her private bathroom, bitching at him for using it without her permission. Her dirty mouth combined with her oral skills had him ready in no time although he didn't return the favor very much. He tapped her pussy and she seemed to like it a lot, moaning out loud as he hammered away at it. He then bent her over and took completely over as she asked him for even more of his lengthy pipe. At one point, she even used a dildo to give herself a technical DP and it ended with the facial as expected. It was an okay scene but not their best working porn.
Scene Four: Brijaye, a redhead found tied up with a ball gag in her mouth in a garbage can, was taken in by Manuel and Steve for their personal pleasure. They eventually removed her handcuffs and took out her anal plug after stripping her clothes off on the bed. She liked it rougher than average so fans of that type of thing may appreciate it more than I did. Her ass was covered in acne and that turned me off quickly but her skills were nearly enough to make up for it (I just didn't like her look-a personal preference of mine). She did the usual oral, straight, anal, ATM and DP with a dirty mouth and didn't mind the choking action either. I would've preferred they use different camera angles since it looked like she was hit in the jaw with a hammer but she did take the facial fairly well, even if she didn't swallow.
Scene Five: Stephanie, a very lean brunette wearing a stripper outfit was up next. She stripped and then masturbated with various toys, getting some help from the cameraman. I would've liked her to do it all on her own but before long, the massive Lee took over and the two went at one another on the couch. She slobbed his knob like a champion, giving some of the best head of the movie and he licked her back for a moment or two before slamming his massive cock into her tight pussy. She moaned like he was tearing her in two and this seemed to further heat him up as he continued his assault. Like many of the others, she did PTM and ATM between positions and she showed a lot of energy and chemistry with him throughout the scene. Her gape was good and she took the facial well without dodging it in this very warm scene.
Scene Six: Jamie, one of the hottest blondes in porn (and the gal on the front DVD cover), wore her trademark neon pink fishnet top, Red, a lean cutie with a black fishnet top, and Steve, the German sperm-inator, had a scene after the ladies warmed up. They all did some oral on one another, with the gentle Steve giving as well as he received, and the ladies battling it out for dibs on the title of best hotty of the scene. They did some of the PTM and ATM the movie seemed to focus on and the gals looked good getting hammered in their pussies. They both took the facial well but the premise of the movie was violated since anal gaping wasn't a factor here. I can forgive it since the gals were so cute but consumers are a fickle bunch, likely to expect anal from the gal on the front cover of a gaping movie.
Summary: I'm admittedly not a huge fan of gaping action and anal but I saw a lot to like with this DVD. Not only was the BTS extra pretty well made but the movie contained more footage than advertised, a rarity in an industry where screwing takes place with the customer as often as with the performers onscreen. I'm going to give this release a rating of Recommended based on the mostly attractive cast, the truth in advertising (well, sort of), and the quantity of fuck for the buck. I hope future efforts will be even better but I liked what I saw here for a new company. There were some rough edges but consumers should appreciate the show.
