Extra's: The best extra of the show was the extra footage (about 45.5 minutes more than the VHS version of the movie; do they even make tapes any more?), with 30.5 minutes on the first disc and another 15 minutes of Behind the Scenes on the second disc. There were also a lot of pictures in the two photogalleries, some decent filmographies, a couple of fetish menus, and a cast list by scene on each disc. All of this on top of nearly four hours of material in the release itself (wow!).
Audio/Video Quality: My Ass Is Haunted was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as originally shot by director Belladonna. I thought more attention was paid to the technical aspects of this release than her previous movies for Evil Angel although some scenes had shadows relating to the lighting as well as some minor grain. The fleshtones were solid though and the colors very accurate with little video noise (outside of some pattern noise caused by the fishnets) and relatively few compression artifacts (a lot of material was crammed onto the two discs but it looked like someone paid extra attention to the mastering this time). The stereo English soundtrack was better than usual this time with some nice separation on the music selections (admittedly, they weren't a big factor though) and the dynamic range managed to show improvement as well.

Body of Review: Few female porn performers have gained as much notoriety as Belladonna over the years. Starting off as a Mormon girl from the conservative (and repressive) climate of Utah, she has been in gang bangs, on national television, and done things most gals in porn would be afraid to do. With circus act sex as a norm, she manages to push the limits at every turn and in a profession known for drop dead gorgeous gals, she has succeeded beyond the expectations of those around her in shows ranging from the graphic lesbian action of Connasseur to the more sedate Bella Loves Jenna Jameson (where she got Jenna to show more heat than that cutie had done in quite some time). 2004 marked the year of her pregnancy but she didn't let that keep her from making some hot porn, with perhaps the best release being Belladonna: My Ass Is Haunted: Extended Cut. Yet another lesbian oriented release, the gals of the show were top notch hotties with a lot to offer their fans as they engaged in heated, passionate scenes with one another. Bella herself was in two of them; sporting a large pregnant belly for those of you not creeped out by it (it took me a bit to get used to as well). Here's a brief breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that anal was emphasized a lot here, as were the variety of toys employed to get the cast off:
Scene One: Julie, wearing a white PVC two piece outfit as she did standing beside Kimberly, who was wearing a pink & white PVC nurses outfit (although it reminded me more of a waitresses uniform than anything else), was on the upper left hand side of the front DVD cover (in a black & white picture though). The premise of the scene was Julie going to the doctor's office to have her ass exorcized (although it got exercised instead) when she believed it to be haunted. The scene actually looked recorded in an industrial kitchen but this is porn so just go with the flow, okay? Anyway, the gals did all the usual lesbian tricks and went beyond that by doing far more anal related stuff, including using large toys, ATM, and handcuffs to name a few objects in the scene. Julie's gape was huge and her newly darkened hair worked to contrast with Kimberly's blonde locks. Kim was the dominant one in the scene and the heat was evident throughout the scene with a lot of chemistry to boot.
Scene Two: Kayla, a blonde with a large ass and all natural breasts was up next as she teased the camera while blindfolded in a chair. She played an angel to Melissa's blonde devil and the devil was clearly in charge this time. Kayla wore white lingerie, including a white camisole and panties while Melissa wore a red & black outfit with matching fishnets. The gals weren't quite as heated as the previous scene but thematically it worked well enough (and the gals looked good together). Most of the actual sex took place on a bed with licking, sucking, rubbing, toys, and fingering being commonplace. Fans of lesbian anal will be overjoyed to see how much of it took place with the chemistry between the gals undeniable, even if less than the last scene.
Scene Three: Katja, dressed up like a nun (if my nuns looked like that when I was a kid growing up, I'd still be a practicing Catholic), and Roxy, also dressed like one, were in the next scene together. Katja's sweet ass had a nice thong on it and Roxy's dominant disposition helped make the scene a winner among some very solid scenes. I could imagine the uproar if the church were to find out about this scene, complete with Roxy using a cross to anally hammer Katja (and then have her do ATM on it) but I'm not dropping a dime since the industry is just recovering from another court case. I'll admit to feeling more comfortable when the nun habits were off the gals and they went at one another very passionately though. Face sitting, technical DPs, fisting in the mouth, and a variety of other acts made this a visually interesting scene but it was the sexual skill of the two gals, combined with their looks, that made it great!
Scene Four: Ryan, the featured blonde on the front DVD cover, and pregnant Belladonna, were up next in a lesbian scene that had all the heat of any of their scenes from the past. Ryan's fishnet body stocking enhanced her curvy good looks and Bella seemed to appreciate them as much as I did while the two kissed and caressed one another. Bella wore a more conventional outfit of a yellow bra (well, sort of conventional I guess) and black & white striped stockings, leaving her bulging belly out in the open. There wasn't a lot of separate tease footage here as the scene was focused on the gals' interaction with one another so it lost a few points for me but I still thought they had some serious chemistry together with plenty of energy as well. From the licking, rubbing, face sitting, sucking and toy use; the gals had it going on! Fans of lesbian anal will be happy as will those who enjoy foot fetish material but I think most people will find this one pretty heated.
Scene Five: Isobel, a fleshy brunette wearing a blue body stocking to compliment Bella's black fishnet version, met her on the staircase of what looked to be a parking garage at night. Isobel's large ass was slated for some anal reconstruction by the looks of Bella's eyes (they lit up when they saw it) but that's only part of the story. The two kissed and Bella even sucked her new friend's armpit between playing with her breasts and crotch. The two weren't as hot together as the last scene but it was still an interesting scene to watch (and far more graphic than most gonzo lesbian porn) with the farting material (farting out lube), the face sitting, and the bunch of toys used to get them off. Fans of energetic performances will appreciate this one even if they get the willies from Bella's pregnant state. There was even a bit of foot fetish action although not enough for fans of it to get off on alone.
Summary: My Ass Is Haunted: Special Extended Edition was easily worth a rating of Highly Recommended for any fans of gonzo and/or lesbian action. The sheer amount of fuck for the buck alone was sweet but the skill of the cast and passion they displayed in their scenes was far more than you'll likely see in this day of lipstick lesbians prancing about in adult movies. Bella's direction seemed to improve and while the pregnancy is now over, I can only imagine that a lot of guys are going to want to see more of her in that condition given how well she handled herself in her two scenes. If you have any interest in seeing this fine cast in lesbian action, do yourself a favor and check it out; you won't be sorry.
