Extra's: The best extra was a 22 minute long Behind the Scenes feature where the cast and crew got a chance to experience a sneaky cameraman as he obtained some great footage. Seriously though, there was extra nudity and sex as well as some funny moment sot enjoy for fans of the cast. There was also a photogallery, some trailers, and a double sided DVD cover along with the usual spam.
Audio/Video Quality: Psychotic was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Nikki Hunter for Python Pictures. The emphasis this time was on mood lighting and smoke rather than a crystal clear picture but it looked pretty clear just the same. There was some minor grain and pattern noise but nothing that got in the way of the sexuality on display in the movie. The fleshtones were accurate, the composition of the scenes often very nicely handled, and the visuals could truly be said to have conveyed the sense of depravity Nikki offered up. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo English. There didn't seem to be any separation between the channels and the dynamic range was limited but the moody music and passionate vocals all seemed to work well with the visuals. In general, the technical attributes were edgy to the point that they achieved what they were going for, even if they weren't technically polished and perfect.

Body of Review: I see a lot of porn that tries to push the envelop more than a little bit in an effort to differentiate itself from the 12,000 other titles made each year. Most of them rely on star power or some specific fetish to do this while others attempt to combine a talented performer with a sense of the absurd. The latest such title is Nikki Hunter's Psychotic, a movie that offers up a group of women that appear to be sexually crazed with a bad attitude that has them thinking they own their partners. While this may be true (women have long seemed to think of their sex partners as chattel), Nikki took some serious chances with this one since done improperly, the viewer would dismiss it as lame. Thankfully, she came off as a true psychotic, as did her female friends, making this a passionate movie to enjoy repeatedly. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that condoms weren't used:
Scene One: Nicki Hunter, the star on the front DVD cover and director, was up first dressed in fetish attire and being manhandled by James Dean and Kris Slater in a red toned dungeon. They slapped her around and she responded by sucking them off like a seasoned sex worker. Fans of rough sex will love how they throat fucked her and otherwise abused her with spit flying all over and everything. After some titty fucking and foul language, they screwed her pussy and ass with some serious DP action to boot. Essentially, she had few, if any, limits here as she sucked them clean regardless of the hole they boned and they was even hole swapping (going from ass to pussy and vice versa) with taste testing. They ended it with a couple of healthy loads to her face and leaving her discarded like yesterday's trash.
Scene Two: Cindy Crawford, the bleach blonde known as a former JKP contract gal, and lean Brandi Lyons, were up next in a scene with Marcos Leon after telling the camera how psychotic they were and that men would suffer. The setting was a smoky room with atmospheric lighting and Marcos looking like he was in trouble as Brandi smoked a cigarette and Cindy played with a large snake (a boa constrictor by the looks of it). Cindy did the most oral on him while held to the table and Brandi played back up on the couple before sitting on his face. Each gal got her pussy poked with Brandi taking anal too. Cindy matched her with a technical DP and the gals took the facial finish after Nikki walked in on them.
Scene Three: Brooke Hunter, the older MILF that has always had an air of psychosis about her, was up next with John West and Jack Frost in an office setting. She wore a dominatrix outfit and showed him an attitude that reminded me of an ex-girlfriend when she stated that it was all about her and anything she wanted of his would be hers. Her latex uniform crinkled as she pressed against him and her oral was as good as ever, getting him hard in order to service her needs. John did the most boning (pussy and ass) while Jack watched them but it was her dirty talk that enhanced the scene the most. It ended with a load to her face that she claimed as her own (I doubt Jack wanted it back) and the scene was pretty good.
Scene Four: Tyla Wynn, looking even more psychotic than usual (if that's possible), was up next with Andrew Andretti as she stripped on a make shift stage that had water running down it. Her fishnet top and collar were interesting as was the way she squirmed about on the wet stage. Andrew was already beating off as she climbed off the stage to ravage his body like a stripper would do for a larger tip. She then blew him energetically and rode his shaft in her pussy as if it might quench her fire. They then ended up on the stage where the boning continued until they began the anal where she pumped on him more than he pumped on her. She may have looked the part a little too well but the sex was solid this time and freak lovers will get off to it a lot of times (oh yeah, it ended with the load on the face).
Scene Five: Julie Night, with taped up nipples a spiked collar, a black corset and stripper shoes, was up last in a scene with Nicki Hunter, Travis Knight, and Alec Knight in yet another smoky room with mood lighting and various dungeon gear lying about. The make up was whorish but this added to the thematic elements as the gals played with the men as if they were slabs of meat. The idea was to make the men pay so the guys were subjected to the abuse this time, though they received some solid oral and good rides as part of their journey. This was the longest scene and had a lot of extra kink to it, from the candlewax to the anal to the DPs. They all got sweaty and nasty with lots of dirty talk to boot. It ended with loads to Julie's mouth that were cum swapped to Nikki and back (and floor licking for those who care).
Summary: Psychotic surprised me with a bunch of gals doing some nasty stuff with mostly generic males. The technical matters could've used some polishing up but the gals were all in top form and did a lot of things that enhanced their performances a lot. There was also a nice cross section of women to pick from but it was the energy and chemistry of director Nikki Hunter that kept it all together so well. I've seen edgier movies, kinkier movies, and even "better" movies but I thought this one was worth a rating of Highly Recommended for all it tried to do while taking those chances mentioned above. In an industry where the saying "no guts, no glory" has been replaced by "lets not offend anyone too much"; Psychotic managed to work wonders for my libido and come off as a vision more than a formulaic porno. I look forward to seeing what else Nikki has to offer as a director in the future.
