Date of Production: 8/2/2006
Extra's: The best extra was the 32.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that showed off a lot of additional sex, nudity, and humor; also providing some interview footage with the ladies of the movie. I can't stress enough that there was a sense of playfulness taking place behind the scenes that a great many sets simply don't have; making the replay value of the movie all that much more for me even though the cast had a single top performer (Jasmine) for me. It was a great extra and added some value for me to enjoy the movie all that much more. There was nearly 13 minutes of photoshoot footage, filmographies, a photogallery, a cast list, a cumshot recap, and some websites in the double disc set as well.
Audio/Video Quality: Evil Anal was presented in 1.85:1 ratio letterboxed color as shot for DVD by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel. I would've greatly preferred the movie to be in anamorphic widescreen (the process adds a lot of detail to the picture on widescreen televisions) but that trend hasn't hit Evil Angel yet so I'll just have to wait. This being his third release for the company, I figured it would look similar to the last though in coming months I'm led to believe that there will be some improvements made too. The colors were fairly solid, the fleshtones accurate, but the lighting was not the best this time; making the picture look decent but not as good as some of his older work. Lighting varied by the scenes and was spottier than previous efforts but still seemed to convey the sense of raw energy fairly well. The amount of grain and video noise were low to moderate as a result so while it wasn't the best I've seen from Michael, it was better than some gonzo productions. There were no compression artifacts noticed during the scenes but the strength of the visuals was how the composition of the shots almost always enhanced the looks or perceived passion of the scenes. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo English with minimal separation between the channels and a standard dynamic range, making it nothing special in this sense but not bad either.

Body of Review: Manuel Ferrara is considered one of the sexiest men alive in porn by the ladies I've spoken with and his directing style seems to reflect his love of the ladies in return. He consistently provides some of the best raw energy in gonzo porn as a result of the chemistry he instills in his scenes, with his Evil Angel releases showing some of the best stroke and replay value of the company's catalog. His latest movie is Evil Anal, a lengthy set of gonzo scenes where the ladies had some great anal sex as they showcased why they were among the best performers in the business in their tease-filled performances. The double disc set provided a lot of fuck for the buck and like any of Manuel's recent releases, the movie will appeal to raincoaters as well as those who like the kind of long, drawn out scenes where every aspect of their sexuality is given a chance to shine. That said, here's a quick look at the scenes, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Mia Bangg, a curvy brunette in a metallic gold bikini, was up first as Jake Malone (playing her creepy, phobic, husband) introduced her to cameraman Manuel. The way her ass ate the bottom and her tan line really looked good, with the amounts of tease enhancing to the show as a whole. She played a total submissive to Jake, acting like a fuck hole during the oral and willing to let him plug her anywhere he wanted, actively bouncing on his cock when instructed to do so. There was some face sitting (and smothering) and she tossed his salad without hesitation, leading to more tease before John Strong and Pascal St. James, started to work her over too. The anal alone was powerful but the men screwed her hard and made her airtight (a cock in her pussy, mouth, and ass at the same time) with her showing a sexually aggressive manner the entire time. The lighting was a bit off but the raw energy of the scene was substantial. She engaged in a lot of taste testing too (PTM and ATM) but essentially, she was nasty and seemed to truly get off on the way the men were tearing into her holes. Towards the end of this ~41 minute long scene, she titty fucked them too, receiving their spew in her mouth for swallowing. It was a very solid scene to begin with in most ways.
Scene Two: Judith Fox, in a skimpy white top and blue jean skirt, Rebecca, Manuel Ferrara, Zenza Raggi, Jean Yves LeCastel, Steve Holmes, and David Perry, were up next in one of Manuel's foreign travels. Judith met Manuel on a park bench and led him to lunch, spending plenty of time publicly showing herself off to him before blowing him in the laundry room of the restaurant's kitchen. Her face may not be the prettiest of the cast but she was lean and trim, showing a degree of skill at tease and other forms of sexual expression. The two were bumping uglies in no time (well, at least from the point of the hummer since he started screwing her just before the hour mark of the movie) and she pushed back on his cock as he penetrated her. That led to an early pop shot in her mouth that she might've swallowed (it looked like it but the camera wasn't always on her) but she was glowing with desire for more at the end of their liaison so she took him to meet the others. Rebecca was another gal that wasn't going to win any beauty contests but seemed to be in touch with her sexuality to the point where she was technically DP'ing herself on the couch of the apartment when the duo walked in on her. Judith played a bit and that led Manuel to get another erection, ready to use it on both of them after he spent more time warming them up. He concentrated his efforts on Judith and her ass while she went down on Rebecca, showing an aptitude for anal before the ending cumswap. This would have been the end of the matter (with Rebecca swallowing his load) but she led him to the other men where she could get the dicking she craved. I liked the footage of her playing with Jean in the street but aside from Zenza looking like a train wreck, the men worked her over hardcore in all sorts of ways (including a DAP-double anal!) before the massive doses of vitamin S (for semen) coated her face and tonsils. The movie was already over two hours into the show with no signs of letting up. Whew!
Scene Three: Jasmine Byrne, a personal favorite of mine, and Brazilian hotty Rio Mariah, were already going at one another in the hot tub of the mansion when Manuel Ferrara sought them out inside the house. Jasmine's excuse for starting early was that he was late and then that she was warming Rio up for him but whatever the reasoning, he was invited to join in (lucky stiff!). Jasmine was the initial sexual aggressor and fans of lesbian action won't be sorry that the gals were warming up so thoroughly, with some of the tease footage that Manuel has wisely made a point of adding into his movies (I love tease footage). The gals showed their propensity to masturbate and stretch their holes with Rio using her sexy accent to enhance the action more than a little bit (I met her years ago and she was a playful vixen even then). After more of that, Jasmine and Manuel went inside and started getting each other off, though thankfully Rio joined them in the living room before too long. There was oral and lots (I mean really lots too) of anal with all three of them contributing actively to the heat of the scene. The ladies had tremendous chemistry with him (and each other) and the energy levels were very high as the passionate tryst continued until the end of the first disc. The gals weren't big on swallowing but they never let up and always seemed to be giving 100% (post coital sucking is so hot!) until the first disc ended at about the 168 minute mark. Yum!
Scene Four: Velicity Von, showing the kind of skill that earned her a spotlight place on the front DVD cover as well as being the only scene on the second disc, teased the camera in her little black cocktail dress. The operative words being "cock" and "tail", she didn't rush as she rubbed herself inside the luxurious house slowly, as though to the music I'm sure was added in during post production. Some lighting effects were a bit arty farty and it took nearly 6 minutes for her to find a blindfolded Michael Stefano laying on the floor by the couch but she savored the taste of his nuts before sucking him off and sitting on his face. She teased him some more before the two did even more oral on each other, him working over her ass with his thumb to stretch it but I found his butt cheek fuck (where he stroked his cock using her cheeks rather than stick it inside) to be really cool since I've done that many a time myself over the years (it feels great and adds a sense of anticipation, knowing you can just twist the angle slightly and hit home). Nearly twenty minutes into the scene, he was tapping her pussy hard as she cried out "baby" repeatedly, going back to oral and then some anal as a result. The anal wasn't as active on her part but it was still a decidedly heated scene by the gal where they moved to the kitchen to finish it up with a moderate facial.
Summary: Evil Anal might not be the best looking movie released by Manuel Ferrara at Evil Angel on technical merits alone but there was always a sense of raw energy, chemistry, and passion by the performers for one another. This led to the quality of the movie being nearly as high as the plentiful quantity, giving fans superior fuck for the buck with solid replay and stroke value that elevated the rating to a Highly Recommended. In short, Evil Anal was only evil in the sense that the ladies were not having sex with me, after deeply personalizing their efforts in so many little ways that it seemed like they were inviting us all to partake in their worldly treasures. At this rate, Manuel will surpass his peers at a company known for high quality, albeit one with a revolving cast of talented directors.
