Audio/Video Quality: Sorority Sex Kittens 3 was presented in the originally filmed 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Jim Holliday for VCA Pictures back in 1996. The picture was blurry a few times, always relying on a sense of raw energy rather than pure technical expertise, and had a wonderfully diverse cast as seen on the back of the DVD cover. The fleshtones were accurate though occasionally out of focus but fans of classic porn understand the limitations of the genre at least as well as I do so take the rating with a grain of salt. This was one of the first Holliday flicks that made great strides to cleaning up the picture and camerawork substantially and should be recognized as such. The audio was presented in the usual Dolby Digital stereo English but the vocals appeared to be looped in a few cases, the dialogue slightly wooden at times, and it sounded hollow less frequently than previous volumes in the series. The music was trademark Jim Holliday style as provided by Dino Ninn and Earl Ninn (with Scott Reno & the Vancouvers, an early iteration of Reno & the Rum Runners), with intermittent music punctuating the scenes from time to time. The music was all original and actually fit in the action, with the lyrics working better than average for the action; the kind of breezy and fun stuff I always liked about Jim's later efforts.

Body of Review: Jim Holliday was one of the most consistently entertaining directors at VCA Pictures both in terms of his movies and with regard to his curmudgeonly way of doing business with the suits. Over time, he expanded his style to include scores of ladies in his movies, often in bit roles that would give a gal a start in the industry, making more than a few friends in the process (even as the folks in Accounting would be fussing at him for their frivolous use). Low budget sets were employed to help keep costs down and he often shot several movies at once to take advantage of the cast's presence but his motto was to keep it all up on the screen for the viewer (not the industry critics since they usually didn't get where he was coming from). As I continue to look at his older titles for my retrospective piece, I recall my looks at Sorority Sex Kittens 2, and Sorority Sex Kittens 1; a couple of weird but warm movies that use the backdrop of a conspiracy dating back generations as the means to showcase lots of hotties having sex on a college campus. They were followed by Sorority Sex Kittens 3, a movie that picked up the story and seemed to be one of the first of Holliday's modern efforts where he started to really kick into overdrive not just on the minor plot strangeness but also on providing more fuck for the buck. The back cover said it like this: "Frat guys have mysteriously been disappearing for 40 years from Lost River College...Upsilon Sigma Sorority has been suspected...and now, finally, the mystery is revealed. SORORITY SEX KITTENS Part 3 The Final Chapter is packed with an all-star cast that reads like the Who's Who in adult entertainment, with more action scenes than you can possible shake your stick at in one sitting. Above all, you'll marvel at the unbelievable ending with T.T. Boy and thirty girls in a scene that will go down in the annals of X-rated hi as one of the most spectacular ever shot. Talk about a climax?" So, without further ado, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Misty Rain, the leggy hotty from yesteryear, was up before the credits rolled in a 69 with Chad Thomas, in one of the sorority rooms. Her tan was awesome and she wanted him to tongue her ass so off to snacking on her crack he went. That led to a quick doggy boning where she rode him incredibly actively with a few more positions and even some anal before he popped his load on her face at the 9 minute mark (to show how much sex fit into the movie before the opening credits that were full of hardbody tease hotties). Interestingly, the credits and cast introductions took as long as the scene, reminding me of some Hollywood flicks.
Scene Two: Sindee Coxx, a great looking gal that provided some of the vocals to the music (eat your heart out Britney Rears), was up next in her pink dress jumping the bones of TT Boy. They wasted no time as pounced on him; tossing her dress aside like the impediment that it was, skipping all the foreplay in favor of a good, hard fuck. It was another short, athletic bout of boning that ended in a facial but it was a case of concentrated coochy that I found to be the perfect way to sum up the difference between a lengthy scene and a high quality scene. Yum!
Scene Three: Shayla LaVeaux, the hotty featured on the front DVD cover, was out in the woods with Anthony in the next scene as the guy gave her some oral attention. This led, of course, to a few positions of wild monkey love as he plundered her perfect pussy. She was fingering her perfect pucker too but they did not engage in anal sex (kind of surprising since any kind of anal play almost always leads to anal sex in porn movies; it's a stereotype on par with pizza boys and pool cleaners). The scene ended with the pop shot to her back after the doggy sex, marking too short of a scene but a nice diversion nonetheless.
Scene Four: Stacy Valentine, playing a new pledge back in the prime of her career, took on Nick East and Steve Hatcher; both of whom were wearing tie-dyed shirts to go with their hippy length hair as they got busy in bed. She blew Nick as Steve warmed her up orally from behind, only to start screwing her before he got her wet. The guys switched around a few times to culminate the action with a short DP, blowing their loads on her sweaty face at the end. Given her look here, it's easy to see why she was such a hit with the fans back then.
Scene Five: Nina Hartley, Shayla LaVeaux, Krista Maze, Micky Lynn, and Nico Treasures, were up next in a moderate length lesbian orgy that had the ladies learning all about one another with some extensive rimming as a focal point. The idea was that the new pledges were to be initiated into the joys of loving their sorority sisters, toys used on their asses (Nina was originally called Little Anal Annie, so this made sense). The cute music was sung by Sindee Coxx too. The sex wasn't as consistent here as with most of Jim's works but it wasn't a bad scene by any means as the gals took some time to get truly acquainted with one another.
Scene Six: Houston, the statuesque blonde cosmetic surgery addict of yesteryear, was up next with Mark Davis on a bed. He spent considerable time warming her up and her oral skills were the best thing she did back then but it was far too short. The good news was that she seemed to enthusiastically ride his cock in cowgirl, pounding his pecker rather rapidly before they switched to an equally active reverse cowgirl. The camerawork seemed to lose focus too much after this and the edits seemed to cripple the length of the following two positions before she took the moderate facial. It wasn't a bad scene but it seemed like the technical aspects took away from it, preventing the two from shining as some in the cast did.
Scene Seven: Tiffany Mynx, Kylie Ireland, Shayla LaVeaux, Paisley Hunter, Houston, Nico Treasures, Serenity, Tricia Devereaux, Jill Kelly, Missy, Ashlyn Gere, Christi Lake, Victoria Paris, Caressa Savage, Brianna Lee, Micky Lynn, Alexis Dane, Sahara Sands, Deva Station, Houston, Krista Maze, Sinderella, Brittney O'Connell, Dalny Marga, Julie Rage, Morgan Fairlane, and at least a few other gals were up next in what was the biggest porn orgy of the day. If you've read my reviews of Jim Holliday over the years, you'll know how much I always liked his orgies above all others and this was an even larger slice of the (hair) pie to enjoy with just about all the female members of the cast going at it on a large set. It was billed as Deva's first scene and several of the others were very new to porn, eventually becoming the A List ladies of the following year in some cases. There was a tremendous amount of licking, fingering, and titty play with a quirk being that not all of them had the requisite fingernail polish Holliday seemed to demand of his Angels. Another interesting quirk was the addition of TT Boy, who, in reverse gang bang fashion, became the sole meat puppet of the day as he got sucked and banged numerous hotties before settling in to give the hometown gal the facial. There were a lot of close ups that made cast identification very difficult at times but this was one that you can simply kick back and enjoy (with some additional clips from it shown after the dialogue that closed out the show).
Summary: Sorority Sex Kittens 3 marked a distinctive change in how director Jim Holliday improved his work at VCA Pictures by cleaning up the technical values, lengthening his sex scenes and adding more of them, as well as providing more of his often outlandish story elements that you really had to pay attention to since they sort of went somewhere. For me, that made the very affordable Sorority Sex Kittens 3 even better than Sorority Sex Kittens 1 and Sorority Sex Kittens 2; adding up to a DVD that I can fairly state was easy to assign a rating of Recommended or better. After this point, Holliday's titles seemed to rise even higher in terms of what he shot for and his budgets reflected his success at the time.
