Cast: Amy Ried, Manuel Ferrara, Harmony, Mark Wood, Talon, Aubrey Adams, McKenzee Miles, Evan Stone, Maya Hills, Chris Charming, Trinity Post, LT, Angelica Lane
Length: 164:30 minutes
Date of Production: 4/3/2007
Extras: The best extra was a 17:47 minute long Behind the Scenes feature mastered in standard definition (MPEG-2, low bitrate, 480p resolution). It was too dark most of the time and I wondered why it wasn't upgraded as well but the gals got some additional footage as they readied themselves for their scenes so I wasn't going to endlessly complain about it. There was also a photogallery, a cumshot recap, a slipcase, and a true double sided cover.
Audio/Video Quality: Internal Injections (Blu-ray) was presented in a very appealing 1.78:1 ratio widescreen color as shot by director Sid Knox for Diabolic using the MPEG-2 codec for the high definition release (the bitrate upgraded and the 1080i resolution enhancing the experience). I was curious as to why the material wasn't encoded in a full MPEG-4 codec and why it wasn't in 1080p but I will freely admit that it did look better than the SD version that came out last year, albeit not as much as it could have. The lighting was not always optimal but it generally limited the grain, video noise, and shadows other productions seem unable to get rid of far too often; the crotches again not as consistently well lit as they should have been. The composition of the shots weren't always completely flattering to the ladies but at least there was rarely any doubt about what was going on and where it was going; given the quality of the cast, this made it more enjoyable too. The fleshtones were generally accurate and the bitrate hovered in the low 16 Mbps area so it did not look bad at all. There were no compression artifacts and the visuals were generally handled pretty well here, except the lighting did tend to be slightly on the weak side at times. The audio was still presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English using the standard 256 Kbps bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate, only slightly different from the SD version for those who care. The music was generic but the vocals; while plain as could be, could be heard in almost all cases; only slightly hollow at times when the ladies were making it clear their limits were being pushed.

Body of Review: Diabolic is a production company that has served the industry as something of a training ground for top directing talent over the years, their straightforward approach to meeting the needs of the consumer always appreciated compared to the fruity artistic endeavors of some of their peers. Their back catalog is replete with examples of top flight scenes that fans still talk about in awe years later, belying the often generic nature of gonzo thanks to their meat and potatoes approach most of the time. Sid Knox is one of their current directors and while I still think he is learning his own style, I have found some of his past work to be quite interesting, depending on the casting to elevate the scenes more than the technical expertise he brings to the table but certainly on my list of people to check out when possible. His latest title to make it to me is Internal Injections (Blu-ray), the first high definition release of his the company was confident enough to send my way. The theme of the six scenes was to showcase a high end cast getting internal pop shots, catering to fans of the creampie genre so popular among those of us not into seeing a guy jerk off to a lady's face. With names like Amy Ried, Maya Hills, Aubrey Adams, and Harmony (among others), I expected this to be a title I could appreciate all the more due to the upgraded nature of the show. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Amy Ried, the hotty gracing the front cover, was up first as she pranced around the house in her red bikini undies, the picture so detailed that I could make out the fine hairs on her sweet ass cheeks. She teased in a short montage that had some black & white footage, ending up with her masturbating as the director interviewed her on the bed. Amy liked playing with herself and the close up was awe-inspiring given the clarity of the picture, the gal soon joined by studly Manuel Ferrara who assisted her in massaging her cookie while they kissed. He also went down on her and the chemistry between the couple was nicely shown, her blowjob to him displaying her enthusiasm and energy levels quite well. The look on her face as she maintained eye contact was something I found enjoyable too as Amy seemed to be in the moment rather than there for the paycheck, her little moans and yelps joining her physiological responses to elevate the status of the scene. It was clear she wanted him inside of her too, the active vaginal ride including several positions and taste testing where Manuel seemed driven to give her pleasure as he slightly roughed her up (to her liking no less). The resulting vaginal creampie was realistic and appeared to be genuine, the genetic juice slowly oozing out of her puffy pussy. Whew!
Scene Two: Harmony, an appealing performer with light hair and some nice curves, was up next as she teased and smoked outside in her lingerie. She is a gal that never has issues putting her freak flag on display and so it was here too as she took on Mark Wood and Talon once she gave a short show indoors in the living room on the couch. The high definition masturbation led her to engage in some sexual athleticism with the men, not showing as much personal chemistry as Amy & Manuel did but certainly producing a strokable scene given her need for seed. She claimed to have a need for cock and it showed, her smile at seeing the men walking toward her a nice touch before she alternated between them while inhaling their meat pipes. Harmony is the type of "no holds barred" gal in porn, enjoying it all as she proved to be their match, the elevated energy levels showing a passion befitting her status as she actively rode them using her pussy and ass, barely slowing down even for the DP footage captured that day. The biggest issue with the scene for me was the uneven nature of the guys drilling her, especially during the DP it struck me that the trio did not share the same rhythm and that makes it kind of tough to bone a gal at the same time. Still, it was a scene her fans will find illuminating in HD, the creampies in her biscuit and ass also appearing to be real.
Scene Three: Aubrey Adams, one of the cutest ladies in porn, and attractive blond McKenzee Miles, were up next as they engaged in some playful tease inside the house, caressing each other and having a pillow fight in a slow motion montage on the bed. They were down to their booty shorts when the action resumed in color and the lesbian antics were nicely played out before the mighty Evan Stone joined them as a top tier meat puppet they found to their liking. What they did to merit his participation was never stated but they made it clear they would encourage the director to use him some more given their passion for orally pleasing him, taking turns as they double teamed him during the blowjob portion of the flick. The penetrative sex was strictly vaginal but again, the ladies were in heat at the mere thought of his boning them, both trying to get some extra quality time as he pounded into them at their insistence. Aubrey looked better this time but McKenzee was no slouch and the creampie was licked up by Aubrey out of McKenzee's snatch for them to cumswap with a smile, a nice turn of events. Yum!
Scene Four: Maya Hills, an exotic gal with a lean figure and seductive look, was up next in her neon pink lingerie as she teased in her montage, the anal princess established as able to handle almost anyone in the jizz biz over the last few years. Maya seemed especially happy that day and her masturbatory efforts yielded a moist cookie for hung Chris Charming to provide her to continue her quest for satisfaction. She dropped to her knees to tackle the meaty member he displayed before her, her mouth sticking to the top portion of it but still actively inhaling as much as she could. They then went to his hammering of her pussy in several positions, lacking any true rhythm but still managing to prove she liked the guy, some chemistry enhancing her desire for the large cock to tear into her as it did. While this wasn't her best scene of the year, she tried to inspire him to do his best and Chris responded by adapting to suit her needs, maintaining a vaginal only scene but one with what appeared to close with a true creampie (in porn, many companies simply fake them as it is cheaper because many ladies won't do them for real).
Scene Five: Trinity Post, an all natural redhead with a sweet looking booty, was up next as she bathed in the tub, spending extra time cleaning her taint and fingering it as Sid spoke to her from off camera. For some reason, she was not given a tease montage and while she has also been long established as a talented performer, this let down bugged me more than it should have, knowing that while she might not be considered the hottest gal of the movie, she deserved every opportunity to give a great performance too. She moved to the bed with some regular speed tease and rolled around, resulting in LT savoring her moistened slit, her blowjob proving her love of large black cock yet again. There did seem to be something going on between them here though that hampered the energy levels, their personal chemistry weaker than expected as it minimized the quality of their boning in at least two positions. She was more active in the vaginal than the anal with his population pudding filling her ass to ooze out.
Scene Six: Angelica Lane, a stripper next door looking gal in a black crop top and matching booty shorts, was up next as she followed the basic formula of teasing in a montage on the bed until the mighty Evan Stone came to play with her. Angelica's eyes lit up at seeing him, the resulting knob slobbing she gave him reflecting her appreciation to work with a high end male talent for a change. The aggressive blowjob then led to the pair fucking like bunnies on Viagra, taking a sultry approach rather than just building on speed as if they were on a date of sorts. Her ass looked best in doggy style but she was a better rider on top of him, the scene not as passionate as a few of the earlier scenes but pretty good all the same. The manner in which she tried to maintain eye contact with the stud elevated the scene too, proving she wasn't just doing it for the money so much as the pleasure of the moment, the resulting milking of his nuts inside her pussy saying it all as she glowed with the knowledge of having drained him dry.
Summary: Internal Injections (Blu-ray) by director Sid Knox for Diabolic was a solid overall effort to make it the first high definition title from the company I have seen, earning a rating of a high end Recommended due to the upgraded picture, the heat of the better scenes, and the manner in which a talented cast showed replayability, stroke value, and decent amounts of fuck for the buck. I would have preferred a better codec be used to remaster the title and perhaps even more extras given the additional cost of the release but I cannot deny that Sid provided one of his better outings this time to be upgraded. In short, Internal Injections (Blu-ray) was the kind of movie that benefited from having a high definition look to it, the nuances of the picture bringing it to life compared to some of the company's weaker efforts.
