Cast: Adrianna Nicole, Marco Banderas/Duato, Claudio Meloni, Missy Monroe, Brian Surewood, Taryn Thomas, Victoria Sin, Kat Slater, Gia Paloma, Sascha, Claudio Meloni, Katja Kassin
Length: 174.5 minutes
Date of Production: 6/1/2006 & 6/2/2006
Extra's: The best extra was the 17 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by the director herself. It consisted mostly of interview material but had some sex and additional nudity, including some of the men in the movie too. It was interesting to watch and see Katja get zoned out playing darts and hear some tidbits by the ladies about their lives but it wasn't long enough for me. There was also a series of trailers from VCA and Hustler, a slide show, some spam, and a 15 day trial membership coupon inside the DVD case for the Hustler VOD (video on demand) program.
Audio/Video Quality: 2 In 1 Hole was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Kat Slater for Hustler Video. The lighting varied in the close ups more than I usually like, sometimes in desperate need of more lighting while in at least one case needing less (Missy looking washed out kind of sucked). Still, in overall terms, the lighting was usually pretty good and served to enhance the looks of the ladies at least a little bit if not more. The composition of the shots was typically a modified POV since Kat always tried to participate in the scenes with her hand and/or a toy. The camera movement was more then most directors with cameras tend to show these days but not so bad as to dismiss her work out of hand. There were no obvious compression artifacts and the fleshtones were accurate so while your mileage may vary, it wasn't a bad looking movie. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English, generally easy to hear with Kat providing the loudest vocals as picked up by her camera mounted microphone. There was no separation between the channels that I could hear and the dynamic range was nothing to write home about but still decent enough for a gonzo release.

Body of Review: Kat Slater has always struck me as a gal with a lot of potential as a director that has gone relatively untapped. She definitely adds a lot of energy to her work as she participates somewhat from behind the camera but it doesn't always translate well if she is holding the camera. Her latest work is for Hustler Video in the form of 2 In 1 Hole. The idea behind the movie was that each gal got a double penetration of one sort or another, including double anal, double vaginal, or a technical DP variation, with Kat helping out as able. If this sounds good to you, the action was even better. That said, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Adrianna Nicole, a gal with light hair and some nice curves, was up first as she spoke with Kat in gonzo fashion. Adrianna was wearing some see through lingerie that didn't even cover her tattoos as they discussed her doing both of their boyfriends. She masturbated as they came to turns, allowing Kat a chance to finger her and feed the juice before Marco Banderas/Duato and Claudio Meloni took over in their roles as boyfriends. Kat held the camera as she sort of assisted with her hand, also verbally coaxing the trio as Adrianna took cock in her mouth and pussy. The anal came after that and while she wasn't the most active cock rider I've seen in recent weeks, she wasn't bad; allowing the men to do her ass one at a time and then with a DAP (double anal penetration). She taste tested the DP cocks (PTM and ATM) before the bareback double anal but she seemed pushing her limits with the act, forcing the men to do all the work. It ended with facials and mouth pops as Kat rubbed it all into her face, alluding to the gals switching places but it never happened.
Scene Two: Missy Monroe, sporting her short hair that she shot with this summer, was up next in her tribute to a stripper version of Little Bo Peep, was up next as Kat teased her about what was going to happen. Kat gave her a titty twister and dominated the scene from behind the camera, telling Missy what to do before Brian Surewood just walked up and started nailing her pussy. Just as the last scene could have used another C-Light, this one could have used some filters on the lights as they were so harsh that they washed out the couple at times. Still, Missy was a dynamo and her announced retirement to get married aside; she showed the world that she was not a "dried up skank" as has been suggested elsewhere online. The oral alone was powerfully energetic and she went back and forth between that and the penetrative sex (initially vaginal before moving up the ladder to anal). Kat helped with a vibrator for Missy to do a technical DPP (double pussy penetration) and then the technical DP took place before the anal caused Brian to pop in her mouth. Missy was playful and enthusiastic, showing some passion for her craft as she then went for a second load from his cock in the form of an anal creampie. Whew!
Scene Three: Taryn Thomas and Victoria Sin, a couple of appealing brunettes with lean bodies wearing sexy lingerie, were up next on the couch with Kat Slater acting like a "dirty perv" as Taryn put it. Taryn was the hottest of the trio as far as I was concerned but the lesbian antics were quite extreme with an emphasis on the oral (of course) but moving to toy use in their pussies and asses; Taryn on the receiving end for the most part. The use of multiple toys really didn't do much for me but the gals, while not seeming to get off, at least put on a decent show to indicate that they weren't bored. In all, it lacked some of the chemistry and passion of a few other scenes but it provided a nice contrast too.
Scene Four: Gia Paloma, the gal on the front DVD cover, was up next as she described her fantasy to Kat who encouraged her to act on it. Unlike some of the other gals, Gia started actively playing with Kat in POV fashion before her tease routine, wearing a silly skull oriented bra to go with her tiny skirt. I admit to having a thing for Gia ever since meeting her a few years back, though Kat using her feet to rub Gia's tits and stick them in her mouth was a bit weird even for me. Sascha and Claudio Meloni were the meat puppets this time, getting sucked before fucking her two holes with an early DP. This was another case in need of more lighting but Gia was among the most active cock riders of the cast and managed to pump back even when at a disadvantage in terms of leverage. There were all sorts of combinations here, including a DPP, DP, and DAP before the loads to her mouth were almost swallowed down. They were large loads and it was just a shame that the camera faded away before she could do so. Yum!
Scene Five: Katja Kassin, a world class anal queen with black hair this time, looked like she toned up since I last saw her but she was pleasingly plump all the same. Her black fishnets and matching bra as well as her silver open backed skirt made for a visual treat but it was the way Kat enthusiastically had her embrace her sexuality that elevated the scene initially. This was where Brian Surewood stepped in to go down on her as she spread her legs wide. Kat used a clear toy on her (it looked like glass but was probably plastic) as Katja sucked Brian off; showing her knob slobbing skills. That didn't last long as Katja wanted a cock inside her so he started banging away at her pussy, with Katja impaling herself soundly in the process. Katja wasn't as aggressive or active as usual here though so while it was a decent scene, it wasn't her best work but the toy and Brian both tapped her ass, moving to more technical penetrations as in the above gals. The scene eventually ended with a facial that Kat fed to Katja's mouth, ending the movie on a medium high note.
Summary: 2 In 1 Hole by director Kat Slater for Hustler Video provided a few scenes that were really good, a couple that were decent but lacked something special, and one that was kind of mediocre by comparison. The raw energy was good but the mixed chemistry and lack of technical expertise impacted the replay and stroke value a bit for me so I rated it as Recommended. Your mileage may vary according to your own personal tastes but I thought that 2 In 1 Hole was worth checking out for fans of circus act sex and extreme queens in porn.
