Cast: Phoenix Marie, Steven St. Croix, Shawna Lenee, Nick Manning, Kristina Rose, Evan Stone, Faye Reagan, Jayden Jaymes
Non-sex roles by Jessica Bangkok, Slick Rhodes, and Frank Bukkwyd
Jayden Jaymes and Faye Reagan
Length: 90:26 minutes
Date of Production: 7/9/2008
Extras: The best extra for most people will be the bonus scene from "Stuff Dreams Are Made Of with Alexis Amore and Alektra Blue. It had a separate photogallery and the scene itself lasted 10:24 minutes for those that care, the grainy lesbian action not a bad bit of lipstick lesbian work even if the lack of tease weakened it greatly in my estimation. There was also a photogallery for the main movie and some trailers for those that care but the BTS mentioned in the credits was nonexistent.

Audio/Video Quality: Bring Me The Head Of Shawna Lenee was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color in 480i resolution using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec as shot by director Cash Markman for Penthouse. The fleshtones were accurate and the lighting pretty decent, the camera angles showing off the ladies fairly well but rarely serving to present them at their best due to the abundance of grain observed in the picture (the soft focus and compression artifacts also disturbing). The editing was okay but the lack of tease in most scenes also helped make it look kind of low budget, the technical deficiencies not the worst I've seen but surprising given Mark's lengthy history in the field. The video bitrate hovered around the 3.1 Mbps mark when I paid any attention to it but the compression rate must have been set too high or the mastering was done on the cheap from what it looked like. The audio was presented in a 2.0 LPCM instead of the standard Dolby Digital, the sampling rate clocking in at the usual 48 kHz and the audio bitrate established at a fixed 1536 Kbps. The vocals seemed hollow to me and the droning (generic) music did not help matters any but the aural qualities were closer to average than the visual aspects of the scenes were from what I could tell, the lack of separation or dynamic range not surprising.
Body of Review: Cash Markman is a long standing director of humorous titles in porn, some of them quite well done at the various studios he has plied his trade. I haven't seen much of his work lately, his prowess with a camera being therefore untested to a major degree, until I spied a title that caught my eye. The movie was Bring Me The Head Of Shawna Lenee and seeing the hotty on the front cover certainly increased my interest in the production, as did the cast including Kristina Rose, Phoenix Marie, and Jayden Jaymes. The movie served as a feature-lite effort showcasing Shawna as the perfect pussy, the nods to various pop culture tidbits enough to set the fanboys on their quests to uncover hidden meanings but I was mainly interested in the sexual exploits of Shawna and her associates so I took a quick look at the movie. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Phoenix Marie, a curvy blond with a great ass, was up first on the couch as she tried to prove to Steven St. Croix that his lust for Shawna was misplaced given all she herself could offer him. She stripped off her top on the couch and got frisky with him, Steven spanking her for her wanton ways. That led to him going down on her with her reciprocating as if showing a need for seed, inhaling his cock before they vaginally banged in a manner that showed she was an active lover of cock. The short scene was kind of fun but had little personal chemistry that I could see, resulting in her getting a facial of his genetic juice.
Scene Two: Shawna Lenee, the hotty on the front cover, was up next in red lingerie as she was shown in a fictional release called Trashy Gropers #14 with Nick Manning. They were outside and her implants seemed larger than ever, Shawna kneeling in front of him to blow him as the split screen showed the pair in front of a classic car. Shawna rubbed herself and Nick was mostly quiet at first, his vocal act starting up before he went down on her. That led to them boning vaginally in a few positions, Shawna encouraging him to continue until it was time for him to rub out a wad of population pudding to her face. In her defense, Shawna licked up much of the remaining semen but the scene left me slightly flat (or is that flaccid?) despite her cute physical appeal.
Scene Three: Kristina Rose, one of the most appealing darlings of the 2009 AEE, was up next as a waitress serving a headhunter played by the Mighty Evan Stone in a diner. There was a cute setup here but the way these two hit it off with a kiss, really turned the tables on the show for me. The chemistry between them was solid and Kristina showed she was enthusiastic as he ate her out, the gal jumping on his dick vaginally before slurping her juices off his rod. She had sent her employer to take his nap and the couple displayed the kind of heat I like to see, the vaginal screwing continuing with some substantial taste testing until she received his salty jizz; her desire to "fuck like a man" satisfied as far as I was concerned. Yum!
Scene Four: Faye Reagan, a heavily freckled redhead, and curvy Jayden Jaymes were up next in a lipstick lesbian scene taking place in the fancy backyard swimming pool. Their bikinis looked especially sexy and I cannot deny the oiling up portion of the action was heated, Evan watching them as he sported wood in his pants. It was not the most seductive scene of the show but the natural sunlight helped make them look their best even with the grain impairing the visual aspects of the movie. They ate each other out and rubbed each other silly, using fingers alone to penetrate the pussies on display.
Scene Five: Shawna Lenee, wearing a white sundress that hinted at her upper thighs and breasts, was up last as she jumped the bones of the Mighty Evan Stone n bed, his cover story working well enough to get him inside her bedroom. She lowered her top and raised the bottom up to allow him easier access to go down on her, Evan roughly treating her as he fingered and slobbered all over her sweet pussy. For her part, Shawna slobbed his knob with enthusiasm and gusto, licking his nuts and savoring his tasty rod before they began the vaginal penetration action. There was also some taste testing here but the scene struck me as truncated too, the editing not working as well here to convey a sense of heat that I figured the two had for one another. The scene finished up when he tossed off his load of sperm to her crotch, the pair romantically kissing before the story elements ended the show.
Summary: Bring Me The Head Of Shawna Lenee by director Cash Markman was far from his best work in recent years but the physical appeal of Shawna Lenee truncated the specifics which resulted in a rating of Rent It as opposed to something lower. The technical aspects needed work, the extras were nothing special, and the movie was too short but a couple scenes with Shawna Lenee helped make Bring Me The Head Of Shawna Lenee a title worthy of checking out, I just wished it had more to like about it.
