Cast: Maya, Choky Ice, Jean Yves LeCastel, Nick Lang, Janet Alfano, Kristine, Priscilla, Erik Everhard, Robert Rosenberg, Kimberly, David Perry, Greg Centauro, Linda Slim
Length: 146.5 minutes
Date of Production: 6/1/2006
Extras: The best extra was the 23 minute long Behind the Scenes feature where the gals were shown getting ready and all set up in their fetish attire. Christoph and Erik Everhard were both on hand to help prepare them and it was a lot of fun to watch. There was also a couple of lame filmographies, a cast list, a cumshot recap, a biography for Christoph Clark, a photogallery, and trailers to six of his older releases similar to Euro Domination 1, Swallow, Euro Angels Hardball 25, Euro Angels Hardball 26, Big Natural Tits 14, and Beautiful Girls.

Audio/Video Quality: Euro Domination 8 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Christoph Clark for distribution by Evil Angel. The lighting was almost always very well handled, leading to very little grain, video noise, and other visual flaws; a change for the better from the usually darker nature of Christoph's works. I give gonzo movies more latitude in how they handle various matters but proper lighting goes a very long way to making a raw, edgy scene look even better in my book. That said; the composition of the shots were also handled with a lot of care, helping to showcase the ladies at their best, although there were moments where the camera went a little crazy since there was far too much going on to capture everything (and some of the ladies were far more liked by the camera if you catch my drift). The stereo 2.0 Dolby Digital audio was about the same as always, providing little to write about in a good or bad sense. There was no noticed separation and the dynamic range was strictly gonzo quality but I could hear the cast just fine.
Body of Review: Evil Angel has long had some of the best directors in porn, including Christoph Clark from their European contingent. The new blood has proven more interesting to me of late but Christoph still has some heated things to show off so I picked up Euro Domination 8 with the hopes that it would be as good as Euro Domination 1 through Euro Domination 7. The series is designed to showcase lovely foreign gals wearing fetish attire and doing really hardcore sex with few limits; something most other companies have backed off from in recent years. Here's a look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Maya, a very lean blonde ice queen with ice blue eyes and an all natural body, was up first as she visited Choky Ice, Jean Yves LeCastel, and Nick Lang in a medical set up of sorts (looking like a rehabilitation unit). Jean looked like a doctor and her fetish outfit made her look all the more appealing to visitor Choky and patient Nick. The scene initially showed her enticing all of the men; moving from one to the other as she gained their undivided attention with lap dances and other playful antics. This led to her sucking all of them off, alternating between blowing them and jerking them off, but Jean snacked on her ass crack with the others fingering her to ready her too. They took turns screwing her ass but the ass was clearly favored over the oral as they pummeled her soundly. When she was on top, she impaled herself actively while still providing oral service to the others, leading to several rounds of DAP (double anal penetration). I sensed no real chemistry between them but it was still a solid performance otherwise. The scene lasted until about the 45 minute mark with her taking three loads to her face from the men, finishing them off orally with some handjob action to boot.
Scene Two: Janet Alfano, Kristine, and Priscilla the three gals on the front DVD cover, were up next as they provided Erik Everhard, Robert Rosenberg and Jean Yves LeCastel with some physical kicks on the couches of an expansive living room. The ladies were fine physical form as they teased the men on a one on one basis before a little demonstration of paddling took place. Watching a firm young ass get reddened was a nice way to start the action though and this led to the usual oral and penetrative sex. Jean seemed to be the favored guy in most of the scenes of the movie since he got sucked off first but it seemed clear that the ladies wanted to work with Erik a lot more. There was some excessive dildo play too as limits were expanded and likely surpassed before the men got to start the screwing. The emphasis was on anal sex this time and most of the latter oral was ATM or ATOGM. The three ladies looked best when lined up taking cock side by side in reverse cowgirl but only when the camera shot them from a slight distance. The energy levels varied a lot between the ladies but they were all rewarded the same with the facials that were cumswapped about. It was a decent scene though the replay value was diminished by a minimum of chemistry between them all.
Scene Three: Kimberly, a very beautiful gal with light hair, a perfect face, and a lean, all natural body, was up next in a rubber fetish outfit as she subordinated herself to David Perry, Greg Centauro, and Jean Yves LeCastel. David was her master and she did as instructed while the other two stroked off to the show. There was spanking, foot fetish action (including licking a sneaker), and a trio of cocks for her to satisfy before the end of the scene. The initial playfulness seemed forced on her part; as though she wanted to be elsewhere as she was made to jerk and suck them off. As she learned to take control of the men with her hip gyrating and eventual riding but it wasn't the most active ride of the movie. Still, she did a very passive anal and extremely short DP that while the weakest I've seen in a long time, still had a hot looking gal on the receiving end. She ended with three loads to her mouth swallowed down.
Scene Four: Linda Slim, an attractive gal that could have been Monica Sweetheart's younger sister (from a distance), was dressed in white lingerie when presented to Greg Centauro and Jean Yves LeCastel as their latest plaything. Jean found fault in her attitude so she was sent to the back room to put on a rubber hood and gain a new way of looking at things, promptly coming back to suck the men off in that European manner than some say is cold and mechanical. Her DSLs were well suited for the work and she appeared to have no difficulty working them over orally (as though she'd sucked a great many hundreds of dicks before these two) and there was a very short bout of vaginal screwing before the men took turns fucking her ass. It was a mechanical scene with little to appreciate for me though I suppose if you like the fetish attire more than I did (it was okay this time), you might get some extra mileage out of the scene. They blew loads on her to end it but the chemistry and replay value were lacking most of the time.
Summary: Euro Domination 8 showed me a somewhat low point of director Christoph Clark in terms of quality of ladies, performance, and the kind of spark that I tend to expect from his works these days. As such, I rated this one a Rent It though it wasn't a terrible flick to enjoy a time or two. The lack of replay value was due in large part to the lack of chemistry from the performers and the minimal extras couldn't save the show from relative obscurity. If you really want a hot show though, check out some of his earlier works in the series and you'll probably find a more satisfying experience.
