Vonn Fink's latest venture for Teravision, distributed by Vivid, is Skinn Kandi, a stylish porno with a very miniscule plot that is loosely based on Alice In Wonderland. Charlotte Stokely plays the Alice character and she basically walks into another world where sex is the order of the day. In between each scene we're treated to trippy little vignettes that show us her voyeuristically enjoying that scenes that she's not directly involved in. It's an interesting and effective way to sort of tie the scenes together, but ultimately the film doesn't have a whole lot of substance even if it does have oodles of style. That said, the sex is decent and the girls look good. Here's the play by play:
Chapter 1 - Charlotte Stokely And Barry Scott: Charlotte walks into a room and finds Barry there. She starts sucking his cock, licking and jerking him. Soon enough he comes on her tits and she rubs it all over her chest. Not a bad oral scene at all but the music is repetitive and distracting.
Chapter 2 - Charlotte Stokely And Brian Surewood: Charlotte makes her way to the next room, lit with red gels and containing a futon. She sits down Brian appears behind her. She pretends to be frightened as he spreads her legs and fingers her but soon enough she's on her knees sucking his cock. He sits down and she rides him cowgirl style, and then she gets down on all fours so that he can fuck her doggy style. She blows him, then there's more doggy style fun before they switch over to reverse cowgirl. He piles drives her snatch, then pulls out and unloads on her face, neck and chest. This scene was solid. Brian didn't go too over the top, both performers stayed in character and the sex seemed genuinely passionate at times. Charlotte does well with the whole 'little girl lost' thing.

Chapter 3 - Leah Jaye, Lorena Sanchez And Some Guy: This lucky dude sits on a couch while the two girls work him over by sucking his dick. Leah gives him head while Lorena sits on his face for a bit. The girls go back to the double blowjob action, and then he fucks Leah from behind while she and Lorena make out. Leah rides him reverse cowgirl style and Lorena plays with her tits, then Lorena gets on her back so that he can fuck her missionary style. While Lorena is getting boned she rubs Leah's pussy for her. The scene ends without a money shot. This was a decent three-way but for from a classic. The girls look good and seem to enjoy each other as much as they do their male partner.
Chapter 4 - Regan Reese, Selina Draagen And Alec Knight: Selina and Regan are making out in a room, sucking and licking one another's breasts and necks. Regan fingers Selina and this continues when Alec comes into the room and Selina gives him head. Regan starts eating Selina out from behind, and then the two girls give him a double blowjob. Regan gets fucked doggy style, and then Selina rides him reverse cowgirl while Regan sits on Alec's face - then the girls switch positions. Alec fucks Regan missionary style while she works on Selina's twat, and then the girls sixty-nine. Alec blows his load into Selina's mouth and she spits it onto Regan's pussy and ends the scene. One of the best scenes on the disc, this one starts off as just a lesbian scene but soon goes into a hot three way that definitely stands above your average guy-girl-girl coupling.
Chapter 5 - Page Morgan And Three Guys: Page comes into a room where there are three cocks sticking out of three holes in the wall. She sucks each one off, one at a time, until they finish in her mouth. Nothing to write home about here. The scene is decent but unremarkable though Page gets bonus points for her nifty wardrobe even if her eye make up makes her look like (a much sexier version of) Mimi from The Drew Carey show.
Chapter 6 - Lorena Sanchez And Katarina Kat And Two Guys: The girls are in a room with two guys dressed in camo and wearing gasmasks. They take turns sucking and jerking their cocks, and then they ride the guys simultaneously in the reverse cowgirl position before turning around one at a time and doing it cowgirl style. Lorena gets fucked doggy style, and then the girls drop to their knees and suck their boys off, each one taking a big load in the face to end the scene and the feature. The feature ends with another solid three way. The girls look good and while the gas masks are goofy, at least it's something different.
In the end, Skinn Kandi is a flashy and hyper stylish piece of work with a solid cast and some good sex. Some of the angles, lighting and music is a bit much but there's some very creative set pieces and good art direction here that makes this a good movie for couples or for those who enjoy art-porn.
This shot on digital video production looks pretty clean presented here in a reasonably stable 1.78.1 non-anamorphic widescreen presentation. There is some mild edge enhancement in a couple of spots and a noticeable bit of mpeg compression evident throughout in the darker scenes. Skin tones look nice and natural, the compositions are dead on, and aside from the fact that this digital video production looks like a digital video production and as such suffers from the minor defects usually associated with the format, everything looks as good as you'd realistically expect it to.
The Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround track is quite sufficient. The dialogue comes through cleanly and clearly, as do all of the moans and groans. Background music sounds good even if the levels do tend to fluctuate quite a bit from scene to shining scene but aside from that there isn't much to whine about here. The audio is fine.
The only substantial supplement on the disc is a Behind The Scenes (13:10) featurette that starts off with Charlotte talking to the camera and introducing the movie. From there we see an interviews with Brian Surewood, before cutting to some behind the scenes footage of the two of them together. We see the some of the sets being built and then we see Page Morgan work on her three-way scene.
Aside from that, we also get a photo gallery of hardcore stills, trailers for thirteen other Teravision DVDs, animated menus, scene selection and a web-link.
The extras are slim and at times the film teeters dangerously close to serving as an exercise in style over substance but the sex is hot and creative and the more Charlotte Stokely the better. Skinn Kandi is a little overcooked with the post production effects but it's well paced, well shot and well cast. Recommended.
