Cast: Katsumi, Erik Everhard, Dee, Cody Lane, Mia Rose, Annette Schwarz, Sandra Romain
Length: 307 minutes
Date of Production: 1/18/2007
Extra's: The only real extra worth noting is the 38.5 minute Behind the Scenes feature on the second disc. Almost all of it was extra sex shot by Erik in POV style (deleted footage) or additional material shot by Jimmy Scaffnetti that showed Erik sweating up a storm as he porked the pretties. More sex is always appreciated and this was a solid offering in that sense that fans will appreciate as much as most regular scenes in a gonzo flick. There were two pop shot compilations from the scenes, a limited cast list, and a photogallery too but the BTS was the best of the bunch by far.
Audio/Video Quality: Anal POV 4: Special Edition was presented in a newly shot 1.85:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Erik Everhard for distribution by Jules Jordan Video (using Jimmy Scaffnetti in a cameo). The lighting was largely even and plentiful so there was not a lot of grain or other visual issues to complain about. The camera angles always favored the women, making them look as good as possible, though usually at the expense of Erik (I doubt any of you will complain about this fact though, especially since this is a point of view movie designed to allow a fan to project himself into Erik's shoes). The camera was largely steady and the editing kept poor footage at a minimum, making it one of the best looking releases by Erik in a very long time (the best if you care about details thanks to the anamorphic process that enhances the picture for widescreen televisions). I could quibble about minor matters (again) but in general; it was a fine looking show. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital enhanced English, with minimal separation between the channels but all the vocals meant to be heard were clearly discernable. There wasn't a lot of thumping music as others use and the sounds of the sexual activity were picked up nicely by the built in microphone on the camera. In short, the technical matters were very solid all around.
Body of Review: Erik Everhard has performed and directed all over the porn industry in recent years, showing that his style of hardcore boning is preferred to the romantic "two positions and a pop" features that have been losing favor in recent years to many folks. After breaking away from his last company (for a variety of reasons, including his desire for content control that his distributor would not allow him to have), he found himself at the top of the gonzo market with a distribution deal at Jules Jordan Video. There is reportedly no place a successful director will make more money than working with JJV in the business so now all he has to do is make the best movies he can and reap the rewards of his labor. His latest flick is the lengthy Anal POV 4: Special Edition (also titled Anal Prostitutes On Video #4, the sequel to the highly appreciated Anal POV #3. The idea behind the title is simplicity itself, Erik has hardcore gonzo sex with a variety of attractive ladies, including anal as a form of truth in advertising that some of his competition could learn from (all too often, companies imply that anal will take place and consumers get to find out the hard way that it isn't true). This time, there was over FIVE HOURS of material in the movie alone, with plenty more in the BTS feature on the second disc. As expected, that helped make this a winner of epic proportions but I'll give you more detail to go on since everyone has different needs. That said, here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used and that all the scenes were decent or better with no filler crud to speak of:

Scene One: Katsumi, the brunette Asian in dark blue undies on the middle of the right side of the front cover, was up first with an aching Erik Everhard, after Jimmy hooked him up with her therapeutic wonders as found in the local adult section of the newspaper. Erik met her at the door to the expansive house with her wearing glasses and a white uniform over her lingerie. Like all the scenes, it was shot in POV fashion and she slowly rubbed his feet after getting him on the table. The care displayed elevated the connection between them, the resulting chemistry very pleasing indeed. To relax him more thoroughly, she ended up doing a striptease as part of the blowjob, rubbing her breasts intermittently on his cock as part of her service. That resulted in her actively riding his cock vaginally and then anally, rubbing herself as part of her effort to keep it all organic and mutually engaging. I was not always a fan of hers but over the years she has convinced me that her level of performance ability and skill was way above average with this being yet another notch on her belt to provide pleasure to hardcore fans. She kept eye contact with him the entire time and seemed to be getting off, the scene ending with him blowing his load of population pudding in her mouth as she jerked him off to completion (I always prefer the lady doing this). Yum!
Scene Two: Dee, the veteran performer shown in the pinstriped outfit on the middle of the left hand side of the front cover, was up next as she came over to have a job interview with Erik Everhard. The job was to be his secretary and he encouraged her to list any special skills she had, warning her that the work would entail all sorts of porn related stuff going on (so that if it offended her to see such stuff, she could leave). This fact seemed to work as a great fringe benefit for the lady, her wanting to jump to the head of the pack of applicants by using her feminine wiles as she stripped down to her sexy lingerie. He liked what he saw and suggested she would move up to the head of the list, but she wanted an answer so she cranked up the heat even more by dropping to her knees to suck him off. Her oral skills were better than ever as she playfully sucked and teased his cock to full arousal, employing some hand to gland combat in an effort to enhance the moment for both of them. One of the problems I have long had with the gal is the decidedly lackluster way she handles penetration in most scenes (as physically attractive as some gals are, if they aren't into the sex or at least acting that way, it greatly limits the heat for me) but she seemed to up the ante here as she put some needed effort into the vaginal screwing. While not as aggressive as some of the other gals, combined with her exceptional oral skills, it made for some pretty heated antics, though the emphasis was always on the oral; right up to when she rubbed out his load into her mouth. In all, it was clearly one of her best scenes to date, even if only fair compared to the others here.
Scene Three: Cody Lane, the beautiful brunette showcased on the lower part of the cover, was up next as neighborly Erik Everhard met with her. He was running about to meet with the other neighbors when she showed him her incredibly skimpy bathing suit (it gave me a chubby before anything happened) in an effort to keep him with her. It worked of course and he was soon pawing her as he applied some oil to her fine ass cheeks, coyly encouraging him as he warmed her up. She did some masturbation for him and then worked him over orally with some nice moves as she aggressively inhaled his meatpipe. This style of hummer is preferred by some over the slow, seductive kind but it gave the lengthy movie some nice diversity in terms of showing that the gals all had their own ways to enhance the action. Her curvy body was put to good use too as she let him titty fuck her before they started boning. The only thing I would have changed about her act was to make her more active in riding the cock. She did an okay job but Erik ended up doing most of the work and as lovely as she is, it's a shame that her actual screwing portion of the movie wasn't as awesome as her oral and tease. Like the others, she did some decent vaginal and anal with taste testing, the result being more stroke value as the first disc of the set closed out with his pop shot to her face after she jerked and sucked him off one last time.
Scene Four: Mia Rose, the extremely cute gal in the nurses outfit on the lower right hand corner of the cover, was up next as she made a house call to medically treat an ailing Erik Everhard. The tease showed her perky little body as she climbed the stairs to the upper portion of the house, ending in her making him feel a whole lot better with the use of some old fashioned loving. Admittedly, if I were really sick, I'd be willing to try her method of cure (even if I needed antibiotics afterwards) and the additional tease provided more than a little reason to check out the scene repeatedly as she slowly worked him over orally. I know a lot of fans that think the sun rises and sets on this little cutie and I have seen enough of her work to know why she works so often for the top companies, combining the kind of naughty innocence and great looks that serve to fuel the fire of personal pleasuring. The knob slobbing was well done and the knowing way she continued to look at him when warming him up was superior to most of the other scenes in the already hot movie. She acted as though she could not get enough, sucking, jerking, and toying with him as she proceeded to get him as hard as a rock. She even put it inside of her cookie as she rode his cock nicely, providing some solid dirty talk along the way. The action ended up with some anal that proved her to be a force to be reckoned with (after he stretched her out with a large butt plug) and it looked like he was genuinely pushing her beyond her limits (albeit, willingly on her part). This was another of the longer than average scenes, allowing the couple to fully explore the sex in such a way that there was something for almost everyone, the chemistry charging the air in the process. It ended when she power sucked him to a frothy facial, using her hands to assist her suction skills to inhale his wad. Whew!
Scene Five: Annette Schwarz, the hot German babe seen on the upper left hand corner in the skimpy maid outfit (bent over), was up next as she cleaned the house with some incredible tease that showcased her ass most of all. I admit that this was exactly the kind of role I like to see her in, using her curves to full effect as the saxophone played for the mood, before she decided to clean the pipes of studly Erik Everhard. I know she seems to have taken the gonzo world by storm but she seems versatile and the camera work added to the fun even more than usual here, with the limited dialogue offering up her potential for features in the months to come. Of all the scenes in the movie though, this one appeared to have the longest, most thorough tease, resulting in her figuring a way to increase her salary that went beyond her cleaning duties as Erik's heavy breathing did a decent impersonation of Darth Vader. She rubbed herself before starting to swallow his cock, but her oral skills were not fully displayed as she wanted his dick slamming into her sooner than the others did. He pounded her perfect pucker and her ass cheeks rippled as he did so, her own breathing picking up quite a bit in the process, but both of her holes took a hammering from his cock and they switched rooms for some toy play after extensive ATM and other taste testing. Like her fellow countryman Katja Kassin, she seems destined to become a world class anal queen, relishing the cock in her ass with some of the most aggressive anal riding this side of Kurt Lackwood. I'll spare you the details but suffice it to say that this was one of the best anal scenes of the year given her talents and looks, marking it as a high point for the movie in my eyes too. Wow!
Scene Six: Sandra Romain, the anal queen seen on the upper right hand corner of the front cover, was up last as she played a mail order bride (technically, an internet order bride) that Erik Everhard wanted to try out during her three week stay in the country. She wore tight jeans and a white top, soon to be discarded in favor of her sexy lingerie as seen on the cover, when she told him that she did not want to go back to her country. This entailed her earning her place in his household, an offer she could make to me in a heartbeat given the show she put on so heatedly for him in the sitting area (the humor of his trip to get water was a hoot as well). The splendid tease was such that I almost didn't want it to end but given her oral play, this thought was soon banished from my mind as she was one of the most talkative (in a good way mind you) gals of the show. Sandra may be an oral queen now but her oral skills have long earned her a place in the top echelon of porn performers and this was no different. The titty fuck was nice and the penetrative positions were as sweet as ever with her showing the world why she is so highly regarded a performer, even if some claim her looks aren't as fresh as they prefer (in this case, her make up sucked but she was otherwise appealing). Like Annette and Katsumi, she rode his cock with a flair reserved for the best in the jizz biz, the anal being even more powerful than the vaginal for the most part. The taste testing wasn't as common here but it was even better for me because of this, ending in the expected facial as she jerked him off to swallow his load. Yowsa!
Summary: Anal POV 4: Special Edition by director Erik Everhard for distribution by Jules Jordan Video showed that the director was still in top form, earning the movie a rating of Highly Recommended in the process. The sheer quantity of fuck for the buck, replay and strokability factors was enough to merit special attention but the quality was not lacking either. Granted, a few scenes showed gals that were not as awesome as the rest but even then there was a lot to enjoy with every one of them offering plenty of reason to watch their respective scenes. Erik is one of the best director/performers in the industry at this writing and rest assured that Anal POV 4: Special Edition, like Anal POV #3 before it, served as hardcore evidence to support this conclusion so unless you like watered down porn, pick up a copy to enjoy.
