Extras: The best extra worth mentioning is the 11.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature. There was extra nudity, more sexual activity (Sandra pissing), and some interviews by cast members for fans (with Jake making funny comments about Ed Powers). There was also a photogallery and a double sided DVD cover (advertising on the second side only though) but given the length of the movie, the extras weren't as vital to maintaining value as in shorter flicks.
Audio/Video Quality: Assault That Ass 8was presented in the standard 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as most porn is shot these days, by director Jake Malone for Red Light District. The picture was decent and showed some improvement over older releases by Jake with often nice lighting, solid composition of most shots (making the women look more appealing than usual), and good fleshtones, though he still has a way to go to be as technically adept as some of his peers. There was a small, light watermark with the Red Light District logo on the bottom right hand corner of the picture but few people seem to mind it these days considering the amount of fuck for the buck being offered and the understanding that piracy is so prevalent. The audio was presented in the usual 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo English and was generally well done although it wasn't anything out of the ordinary for a gonzo production. I could hear the gals moan, groan, and talk dirty so I was pleased with it but there wasn't any separation between the channels and the dynamic range wasn't all that great either.

Body of Review: Red Light District had been one of my favorite production companies in the gonzo field for a few years now due to the levels of quality control they employ and the straightforward nature of the action they provide. It certainly helped that they employed a lot of great directors and sought out fine hotties to showcase too. One of their current crop of directors is Jake Malone, a guy with an interesting sense of the absurd but also a sense of self that allows for him to show what many of us wish we had the opportunity to see firsthand. His latest movie for the company is Assault That Ass 8, a series I haven't seen since Assault That Ass 4, and the 363rd release by RLD. The premise is to show women who not only do anal but also enjoy it thoroughly, providing some of the best scenes you'll find in gonzo porn. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Flower Tucci, wearing a neon blue outfit accentuated by a matching fishnet body stocking, was wisely up first as she slowly came down the staircase to tease the camera with her great ass and body. If there are any domestically grown ladies as good at anal as Flower, I haven't run into them, and her all natural body looked ready to rumble during her extensive toy based masturbation action before she was joined by studly Manuel Ferrara on the couch. She showed him that she could take a beating by slapping her own ass very hard, but he wanted to make love, not war as he ate her ass out instead of hitting it. This led to him boning her pussy for a brief time, switching out to anal where she really enjoyed the pounding action, enhancing it with ATM for the fans of extreme stuff. She was sexually aggressive throughout the scene and provided her usual waterworks show, getting sweaty in the process. In that sense, the scene was top notch since far too many gals in the industry want to look their best at all times whereas Flower doesn't care as long as she and her partner get off. Whew!
Scene Two: Barbara Summer, a great looking blonde from the Czech Republic with a hot body, was up next as she smoked a cigarette while chatting with Jake, before the tease footage began. The droning thump of the drums could've been turned down by half and still be too loud but her tease footage was slow and sensual, much like Flower's was before her. Her scene partner was Manuel Ferrara and he went down on her as she kicked back in a small red chair, offering up her front and backsides to him as he orally readied her for the action. The face sitting and spanking was nice but it was her active riding on his cock and oral skills (not even as "uberwoman" this time) that I wanted to see most. She really wasn't as aggressive with his cock as Flower was, though she took every stroke like a champ, and soon warmed up to his pounding anal action. The anal continued on until after the DVD's one hour mark, with her sucking down his ejaculate after receiving it from him jerking off. She showed a lot of potential in the scene and is just a slight step away from performing as nicely as she looks.
Scene Three: Jada Fire, a busty black gal with lots of attitude to provide diversity to the cast, was up next as she teased the camera without the annoying musical montage, soon walking in on naked John Strong and Tony T. on the couch. While I am usually suspicious of a scene that has the lady walking in on two naked men on a couch, I'm acquainted enough with John to know which team he plays for and she went right to aggressively blowing both of them upon dropping to her knees. The men throatfucked her so hard that I almost had to go check which title this was although they soon were hammering away at her pussy and ass like they were old pals in need of reacquainting. She was loud, proud, and an active fuck which led to a DP as she used dirty talk to get them hitting it harder. The majority of the scene was devoted to a single dick plowing her ass, and while she's not exactly my type most of the time, she gave a solid performance nonetheless. The scene ended with her taking their facials, which coated her face like a glazed donut.
Scene Four: Olivia O'Lovely, a gal with some sweet womanly curves and a sultry Latina look on her face, was up next as she teased during the music in a chair. Her red net stockings looked good on her and fans of gals with junk in the trunk will likely already know just how hot she can be. Granted, if you're looking for the 18 year old gal with a boyish body and a complete lack of sexual skill, you'll want to look elsewhere but if you want a woman; she's a sweet choice. Manuel Ferrara, one of porn's reining studs, agreed with my assessment as he ate out her ass on the couch, enjoying the smothering effect of her big juicy ass. She reciprocated with some heated oral and a handjob designed to get him as hard as needed for the ensuing vaginal ride where she seemed to enthusiastically appreciate his size as he fingered her too. This led to some PTM and anal, with her asking for more and more as the scene progressed. The scene ended after a lot more anal antics, with him dropping a huge load to her face, larger than he usually does in fact, and her licking it off for full effect.
Scene Five: Sandra Romain, a far leaner brunette but more talented than the rest of the cast, is on the world's short list for anal queens in terms of quality (performance, shape, skill) so it took two men; Steve Holmes and Manuel Ferrara to properly handle her. Her tease session was shorter but she's less about tease than performance, with little need to work herself up to a good performance given her skill levels. The men were on the couch waiting for her, each taking an end to work as she blew Manuel and Steve tapped into her from behind. Her fishnets didn't last long as the men tore them during the aggressive antics that followed; her slobbing Manuel's knob completely as she begged to be fucked. The specific positions of the scene really don't matter much here since she was a master of all of them, with the guys trying to hold on for dear life as they did their best to keep up with her. The oral was the best of the show by far, the vaginal and anal screwing showing her to be the best fuck of the movie (say what you will about her looks or sometimes mechanical demeanor, she's an incredible lay). The scene had some bareback DP footage too but the scene was all around solid with little to detract from it (other than maybe when she tossed Steve's salad and rimmed him). It ended when she jerked them off into her mouth, swallowing every drop that landed inside her mouth. Wow!
Scene Six: Naomi, the bubble butt gal on the front DVD cover and latest hotty in the porn world to embrace anal sex, was up last to satisfy the masses in a scene with Michael Stefano. The tease footage here was top flight all the way as she wiggled her butt in slow motion and played with herself in a black fishnet get up before walking over to the couch to start sucking off Michael's shaft. He was as infatuated with her bubble butt as the rest of the world, proving her performance in John Leslie's Naomi: There's Only One was no fluke (she was the focal point of the entire movie there). In any case, Michael gave her some oral and she wiggled her butt on his face before he started hitting her pussy and ass with his moderately sized penis. Unlike some of the others, she was not experienced in anal and even her vaginal wasn't as active as I like but she proved to have a lot of potential that fans will want to see completely exploited before she leaves the industry. I know that at least some of you will appreciate that she wasn't as experienced as the others, giving her a freshness missing in too many performers. The scene ended with the facial as expected and while her act needs a lot more work to reach the levels of the rest of the cast, her look alone was worth several replays.
Summary: Assault That Ass 8 had a lot of fuck for the buck with some incredible performances by many of the leading ladies of porn. You have to understand that a movie where the weakest scene is by a hotty like Naomi, who could milk your nuts by just teasing you alone, and the amount of fuck for the buck was so high (over three hours), with nice production values, a rating of Highly Recommended is perhaps on the low end of the spectrum. It needed some more polishing up but the quality of the action was very high and the movie will have the kind of replay value that makes you want a copy of your very own. If you enjoy anal sex, give this one a look and you'll see what I mean as the series lands into the hands of a director perfectly suited for it.
