Extra's: My favorite extra was the 13.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by J.D. It had some technical stuff as well as nudity and the cast getting ready for their scenes. While not the best such extra, it certainly had enough material to keep me interested. There was also about 16 minutes worth of interviews with the female cast members. They rarely said anything of importance but fans tend to like this kind of thing and I do too. There was the limited director's commentary; by limited I mean that the director didn't speak during the sex scenes, perhaps forgetting that viewers listening will have already watched the movie at least once. There were also the usual biographies for the entire cast, a pop shot compilation, a photogallery, some trailers, and spam.

Audio/Video Quality: Stalker was presented in non-anamorphic widescreen color as originally shot by director Francois Clousot. The aspect ratio looked to be 1.85:1 and it looked pretty good although the levels of grain were higher than I prefer. The colors were fairly accurate and there were some compression artifacts but the camera angles and composition generally complimented the female performers. In all, it wasn't the best looking feature I've seen of late but I thought it was a bit above average. The audio was presented in the usual stereo track with decent music and sound effects but a limited dynamic range and hardly any separation between the channels (failing to use the capabilities of the audio is nothing new in porn).
Body of Review: One of the reasons I've long appreciated Sin City has been their contract performers like beautiful Hannah Harper. The company may not be able to compete with Wicked Pictures or Digital Playground, but their women have long been on a near equal footing and they manage to make a nice variety of movies for adult entertainment. Their latest feature in the Ultra line is Stalker, a movie centering on Hannah as she finds a friend getting a little too close for her comfort. There was a bit of plot here but nothing your remote won't fix if you're not into features so fans of the cast may like this one a bit more than I did. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that condoms weren't plentiful here:
Scene One: Hannah Harper, the hot looking blonde on the front DVD cover, practically begged Kris Slater to have sex with her after they watched a lousy horror movie on the couch. She looked like she lost some weight since her last movie (she looks good with a few extra pounds though) but her sexual skills were still intact as she slobbed his knob with some passion. I also liked the way she rode him in cowgirl style although the overdone vocals could've been toned down a bit for better effect. They switched to doggie style and he popped off in no time. Yeah, the scene was kind of limited but at least she looked great during it.
Scene Two: Brittney Skye, wearing a sweater and short skirt, lamented her need for a ride to Hannah while in the mechanic's shop while the massive Lee Stone listened in. He took charge of her, making her beg for his cock in her mouth, and the energy was actually very high as she blew and screwed him. While he did go down on her briefly, she was the focal point (for good reason) even as he banged her soundly in her tight, wet, pussy. It ended with the usual chest shot but it was the energy and chemistry that set this short scene apart. Fans of this blonde vixen will have lots to like about her role here and I only wish she had more opportunity to shine.
Scene Three: Brooke, one of the unsung cuties in porn, took care of slacker Kris Knight in order to further her career. She took to his cock in her mouth as though it were her purpose in life, savoring it as she used both her hand and mouth to get him hard. Sadly, he seemed to have problems getting a hard on that could dive deeply into her tight pussy and that killed the heat for me. She managed to ride him better in reverse cowgirl position but even that was a pale act compared to some of her better work in the recent past. It ended with a pop shot to her lovely breasts.
Scene Four: Ariana Jollee, the brunette vixen that has made many waves with her raw sexuality in porn over the last few years, did cheating Kris Slater in bed far more energetically than Hannah. Ariana's skill at milking a nut is just about legendary these days and her commitment to getting him off seemed very single-minded with near perfect oral skills, a great ride in her pussy, and even some sweet anal. This was the best scene of the movie by a lot and even had some ATM with the facial. While she wasn't the best looking gal of the movie, her talents were the best and it showed. Whew!
Scene Five: Trina Michaels, a blond with large implants but a willing attitude, gave Chris Cannon what he needed in bed as he fantasized she was Hannah Harper. In short, the scene had both gals mixed in with oral and straight sex being the mainstays. The action was kind of tame by Hannah but Trina was energetic; making the scene pretty good. I'm not really a fan of this kind of editing, even when someone as talented as Raoul Duke (also on the commentary) did it, but it wasn't as bad as it would've been.
Summary: Stalker was one of those movies that left me wanting more, even though it lasted over two hours. The cast was top notch and the extras were solid but the energy levels were lower than this fan expected, making it worth a Rent It to me. Hannah Harper and associates also weakened the story by the weak acting, something they're usually pretty good at (at least Chris Cannon and her are known for it), but I think many of you will still enjoy it based on the sexual antics of the cast, even if only one gal, the lovely and talented Ariana Jollee, did anal. Give it a look and adjust the rating as you see fit, just keep in mind that to sell as a feature, there should be something more than just sex.
