Audio/Video Quality: Bitchcraft #5 was presented in the standard 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as most porn is shot these days, by director Jake Malone for Evil Angel in the MPEG-2 codec with 480i resolution. The picture was decent and showed some improvement over a few of his recent releases by using nice lighting, solid composition of most shots (making the women look more appealing than usual), and good fleshtones; looking as technically solid as any of his peers in the Evil Angel, even stable in the portions where the lighting was decent. The bitrate it was offered in was hovering around the 3.4 Mbps range so it wasn't the best looking title of the day but still pretty decently made overall. Jake kept his rough edge and raw energy at full levels while addressing my concerns nicely, marking it as a turning point in his favor if he can keep the momentum going. The editing was minimal but jumpy at times and the darker themes of the flick were on the grainy side but I did not see many compression artifacts or edge enhancement so those of you with larger television sets may appreciate the picture more than usual. The audio was presented in the usual 2.0 Dolby Digital English in 192 Kbps using a 48 kHz sampling rate and was generally well done although it wasn't anything out of the ordinary for a gonzo production. I could hear the gals moan, groan, and talk dirty so I was pleased with it but there wasn't any separation between the channels and the dynamic range wasn't all that great either.
Body of Review: Jake Malone is one of those directors that projects a perverted persona in his movies distributed by Evil Angel but according to my conversations with numerous people at the 2009 AEE, he is probably one of the nicest guys in the jizz biz too. His movies have been used as examples of misogyny and how guys hate women by a number of people but in reality, he goes through each step of what takes place in his scenes with the ladies, careful to stick to their personal limits unlike some peers. His latest release making it my way is Bitchcraft #5, a lesbian outing where the cast really pushes each other to appreciate the rougher sex tricks they claim (in the BTS) to enjoy in their personal life. With ladies like Annette Schwarz, Tory Lane, Adrianna Nicole, and Kimberly Kane (among others), I figured this would be another fine example of material on the edge of acceptability; the kind of lesbian circus act sex that some would outlaw if their prudish ways were catered to. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Annette Schwarz, Adrianna Nicole, Jandi Lin, and Sindee Jennings, were up first. Sindee started off with a seductive little dance on the stairs in her white, youthful outfit, wiggling in all the right places to the slow beat of the drum. Her camel toe was prominent and the all natural body looked great as she teased with it, the gal sitting down to masturbate when Jandi came upon her to kiss and caress her. That led to Jandi dominating her too, some face sitting and other heated antics serving them well until Annette walked in with Adrianna to dominate. This was where Jandi became submissive to Annette and Adrianna took care of Sindee, exploring their holes and making it clear about who was in charge. The verbal coaxing helped make this a warm scene and the slaves sucked ass and pussy with equal vigor. There was choking, toys, and a lot of abuse tricks taking place but I thought all four of them were enjoying the proceeding just fine, the slaves getting off just as often and hard as their tormentors. There was also a lot of face sitting taking place and just when it looked like the scene was over, a harsh edit showed the extremely wet ladies upstairs going at it all over again. Whew!
Scene Two: Amber Rayne and Isis Love were up next as the pair demonstrated the joys of fetish attire and BDSM gear; this scene a bit slower and more paced with flogging as a common act. Amber was the slave this time and Isis was a harsh task mistress, beating the tied up Amber without mercy. There was a lot of ass sucking, role play action, and urinating this time too; a plastic floor covering keeping it all off the wooden floor. The vocals showed Isis to be a mean gal too, the woman repeatedly denigrating her charge as though she were a worthless piece of tail. The rimming, slapping, and nipple torture elevated the dynamic too, Amber getting excited if you believe her respiration rate and nipple erections. Amber was an active rider of the strap on dildo too but some of the penetrative action was too mechanical for my tastes, ending with a large glass anal plug stretching Amber's ass and her gape showing her sphincter control.
Scene Three: Tory Lane, a wild child if ever one existed in porn, and cute blond Jaelyn Fox, were up next as Tory took charge of the security guard that complained about Tory's illegal parking (the ladies seen on the top half of the cover in the featured spot). Tory grabbed her and the next thing the viewer sees is Jaelyn bound to a steel contraption with a ball gag in her mouth (and a large dildo positioned to tear her pussy up!). Tory did as she saw fit while threatening the gal, the darkened room looking creepier than normal as Tory mixed pleasure with pain to get the most out of her slave. Just when the scene appeared to be (prematurely) over, the pair was in a similar circumstance but Jaelyn wearing fetish attire including a mask; Tory continuing her assault on the gal with a good spanking and rimjob. There was some caressing too but that was designed to enhance the pain aspects of the scene, such as the clothes pins used on the vulnerable Jaelyn. Both of them played their roles to the hilt and this made it a special scene for me, Tory treating Jaelyn to some ass and allowing her to use a toy on Tory just as hard as she had been boned. This continued for a lengthy bit of nasty fun and ended when Tory kicked her out of the room.
Scene Four: Jada Fire, a curvy black gal with a lengthy career built on how nasty she could be, and blond German Annette Schwarz, a gal that has left porn for now, were up next in a white room. Jake verbally participated this time (he had refrained previously) and told them what he wanted, the gals using lots of oil to probe each other deeper than ever before. I love the oiled look and this scene was no different, perhaps lacking in the fun factor of the Big Wet Ass series or the hardcore Oil Overload series at different companies, but showcasing why these two have had such a following. Jada looked intense here and Annette was as driven as ever, less of a BDSM angle employed this time as they gave each other head and fingered each other before using toys. This was a performance though and lacked some of the chemistry I've seen from them in the past, both ladies looking into the camera way too often for my tastes. The squirting that took place was kind of gross too but even worse was the milk enema action to Annette's face.
Scene Five: Kimberly Kane, the premiere female "Alt" director of our time, and sexy Sinn Sage, were up last, Sinn providing a heated little pole dance that had my pole dancing in my pants really quickly. Sinn initially wore a pair of sheer black pants and PVC top, her strip tease interesting Kimberly who took charge of her soon after the dancing stopped. Kimberly flogged her slave and reddened her ass cheeks nicely, the bent over babe looking increasingly ready to take anything coming her way as her mistress spent some time orally enhancing the action. The setting for the second portion of the scene was a sterile warehouse type of place, the metal walls and electronic equipment contributing to the feel of things rather well. There were clamps and vibrators, slapping and choking taking place, and strap on dildo attacks too but this was again more of a performance for the benefit of others than the ladies getting off as if in their personal life. Still, the chemistry between them was undeniable and while it did not get as smoking hot as the first scene in the flick, it was a very solid bit of hardcore lesbian action. Yum!
Summary: Bitchcraft #5 by director Jake Malone for Evil Angel was another heated volume in the popular series that served up copious amounts of rough lesbian sex. There was no genetic juice or population pudding launched into the faces of the ladies but the antics they engaged in were just as edgy as anything you will find. The technical aspects were on the rough side as well and the extras were pretty basic so I rated the movie as Recommended but fans of the genre will find this well worth their time, money, and semen so adjust the rating accordingly. In short, Bitchcraft #5, like Bitchcraft #4 before it, is best taken in smaller doses unless you're extremely jaded or into rough gal on gal sex antics but make no mistake about it, Jake is way ahead of the curve when it comes to this kind of thing even if he has not received many kudos for it to date.
