Date of Production: 10/17/2006 (the compilation only)
Extra's: The extras consisted of a photogallery, a helpful cast list, a series of filmographies for some of the ladies, and trailers to Smother Me, Ass Jazz 3, and Ass Jazz 4.
Audio/Video Quality: Faces of Ass Destruction was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color the scenes were shot in for their various releases over the years (this being a compilation) by director Romulus for distribution by Evil Angel as part of their Buttman Magazine Choice selections. Previous selections like Smother Me and Ass Jazz 4 showed that the company is willing to give new directors a break, even lowering the general quality control levels in order to showcase some fine raw energy. The lighting was not always very solid and that led to grain, video noise, and other issues, with the composition of the shots looking almost like a home movie in great need of editing but the sense of raw energy was still as solid as ever for the series. There was no intercourse in any of the scenes and the cocks stayed in the clothing so if that makes it less appealing to you, walk away now. In general, it looked like someone needed to learn how to work their brand new video camera but showed some potential nonetheless. The audio was presented as 2.0 Dolby Digital according to my receiver but I heard no separation between the channels and I'm of the belief that the original sound was straight from the microphone on the camera. You could hear the background noise and light hum of the camera when the cast was quiet and the vocals were hollow and in need of repair but it was better then droning music being heard as some directors use (the music was limited to the credits of the movie).

Body of Review: Evil Angel is one of the top companies in porn for ass related gonzo productions. I make this observation after years of following their releases, and their recent addition of the Buttman Magazine Choice series to showcase titles of lower technical qualities that show a lot of raw energy, passion, and heat have proven to be exceptional fun for me in most cases. Their latest release in the series is Faces of Ass Destruction, a compilation of five scenes from the Roman Video vaults, designed to appeal to those of you into face sitting and ass worship; using dominant women to force loser men to do their sexual bidding. It would've been more interesting if the formula used sex in some way or expanded on the themes involved (apparently, the original company does offer such material separately for those into it) but I could see the appeal of this too. The cover said it like this: "On your knees, ass worshipers, it's time for church! Your service: five stunning scenes showing six bitchy, dominant, round-assed beauties subjecting meek mooks (just like you) to the divine humiliation of anal servitude. Indeed, POV-style segments put the dominant asses right over your face. Blonde, Russian-born Mistress Victoria Zdrok, a New York pro dominatrix with a Ph.D in psychology, knows how to work wimps. This Penthouse Pet Of The Year 2004 smothers slaves with her big butt, bouncing and riding tongues till the wimps struggle for breath and whimper for mercy. Sandra Romain, one of the most aggressive, nasty ladies performing in video, is a born face-sitter -- she genuinely loves dominating men, and her comely ass springs back to perfection no matter how it's squeezed. By a taut leash she yanks a victim's head into her spread cheeks for a rim-job. With delicious verbal abuse she slaps, pinches, pulls hair and rides her hapless slave's dildo face harness! In another scene Sandra doubles a supplicant's torment with the help of hot brunette Olivia Saint. Shapely Tory Lane tops her wimp with handcuffs, dildo face-harness, tickling, pussy worship, queening and ample ass-smashing. Pro dominatrix Mason Storm educates big-assed blonde Hollie Stevens in the techniques and attitude of proper slave domination. Mason's one hell of a shit-talker: "Isn't it great to control somebody's life with your ass?" There was no actual penetration, cocksucking, or men getting off (except, hopefully, for the audience) but it served as a better than average fetish video if you're totally into this kind of thing. Here's a quick look at the repetitive scenes, noting that no condoms were used or necessary:
Scene One: My Big Fat Greek Ass: Olivia Saint and Sandra Romain, both brunettes here, were up first as they teased each other on the bed; Olivia wearing some limited lingerie and both of them in stripper shoes. They pulled gimpy Aaron Willis out of the closet by his leash, treating him like their personal possession as they fought over who could sit on his face first. Each gal got to ride his face as he ate their pussies and asses out, the gals pulling his hair and threatening to train him at his insolence. They never actually had sex with him in the classic sense (no penis play folks) but he was made to beg for more ass and the face sitting theme was followed for the ~44 minutes of action. The camera work was spotty and amateurish but this added something to the raw energy of the scene.
Scene Two: One Ass to Rule Them All: Victoria Zdrok, the blonde featured on the front DVD cover (and Penthouse Pet of the Year in 2004), was up next with wussy Aaron Willis in the same setting as the last scene; a low end bedroom that looked like a pauper lived in it when not used for porn scenes. Victoria wasn't as energetic about dominating Aaron but she treated him like crud after she pulled him out of the closet to be her personal vibrator. She treated the camera as a cohort in the action as she told the operator what she was going to do. There was more foot here and she acted like he should also be her furniture, tormenting him with all the things she considered doing to him. This continued until the 67 minute mark before a new slave appeared (no transition to speak of, just editing into his appearance as she sat on his face) called Bubba. He was hailed by her as the king of face sitters and she made him squirm as she sat on his face to where he appeared unable to breathe, turning bright red as she took charge of him. She only did this for about five minutes but he looked to be a bit less appreciative then loser Aaron.
Scene Three: Worship My Latina Ass: Tory Lane, one of the hottest gals in porn, was up next as she dealt with door to door salesman Matt; a guy that looked like an average 20-something male. She told him she'd buy his product if he did what she said, resulting in her applying the general face sitting formula to the scene. She talked dirty and rubbed her pussy and ass on his willing face for a lengthy time, removing her tight black panties as she gyrated on his cranium. They started out in the well lit living room but went to the less well lit bedroom as she did more of the action with the "man-whore" handcuffed for submissive purposes. The color balance was off by a lot this time, casting a yellow-greenish tiny as a result, the camera work looking just as sloppy as last time. She seemed to climax at least a couple of times due to the action, getting all sweaty and never getting him off.
Scene Four: A Facesitter is Born: Mason Storm, Hollie Stevens, and Ponyboy Thunder, were up next as Mason called Hollie over to enjoy some educational work with her new toy she called "pain slut". Mason was wearing some black lingerie and stripper shoes with Hollie wearing a white shirt and black shorts (same footware) as he followed orders in his shorts, white socks and tennis shoes. He was a lot like a chunky John Strong and Mason made sure that Hollie followed the program as the two of them tested his ability to survive both of them poised on his head at once. There was limited foot fetish and the ladies initially tried him out on the living room fold out bed, finding it to be a bit flimsy for what they had in mind. Mason made him eat ass a lot more in various positions, preventing him from breathing as his face turned a shade or two of pink. Mason loved the action and Hollie was learning to appreciate it a lot; focusing on keeping him oxygen deprived (even pointing out it could kill him at one point). There was some POV action but not much and they ended it at about the 138 minute mark of the movie.
Scene Five: Lick My Ass 2: Sandra Romain, the Romanian brunette seen earlier, was up next as she talked about how she was going to dominate the viewer with her ass, resulting in a lot more tease then the other scenes before Bubba was brought out in his collar. The colors were far too saturated and he was as big a loser as any of the others in the movie, begging to suck her ass as she forced him to eat her ass. They were in the generic bedroom and she demanded his total obedience as she pulled at his nipples and pulled his chest hairs out; continually using dirty talk as she followed the routine. They kept going at it until the end of the movie, her shaking her money maker on his face and employing many of the same tricks with him but never letting him get off.
Summary: Faces of Ass Destruction as distributed by Evil Angel will surely find a following for those into ladies dominating men with their asses. Most of the time, such fetish material is relegated to small company niche releases and it was interesting to see such a large distributor giving Roman Video a shot at the big time. I didn't think Faces of Ass Destruction was as much fun as Smother Me but fans of fem-dom will probably like the narrowly defined niche release a lot more than the Rent It that I gave it for the general audience. Mason, Sandra, and Tory were clearly the best of the six ladies in terms of the dynamic offered up and had there been something more to it, better technical values, and more extras, I'm sure it would have earned a better rating but it was still one of those titles you'll either love or hate, depending on your sexual kinks.
