Behind The Scenes:  

 

Lasting almost thirty minutes the cast and  crew shows how  much  fun it is  with Voodoo  and Daisy  getting into mischief. Kelli lends her voice as to how she feels in regards going from main stream to porn. The camera catches the beautiful Jennifer Dark taking a cat nap before her scene. Director Paul Thomas gives Kelli and Voodoo some pointers on their scene together. The  camera then finds  Kelly Leigh prepping  for her  scene with Steven St. Croix and  talks  about her  role and of  how  she  sees herself as  both  MILF and  Cougar.

Bonus Scene 1: The Visitor w/ Alektra Blue & Liss Ann:

Alektra Blue, a beautiful newcomer, and established hotty Lisa Ann, were up next as they masturbated beside one another in some bikini outfits as the edited Stefani footage continued to be added in from time to time. Of the two gals, Lisa interested me the most as she dominated the action but compared to the last lesbian scene, this pairing was much more readily appreciated since the gals appeared to be getting each other off with their tongues, fingers, and toys. The lighting could have been slightly better but the raw energy was off the charts; proving that Vivid's lesbian scenes aren't all tame. Reviewed By Don Houston

Bonus Scene 2: City Sex w/ Demi Delia & Sascha:

Demi Delia, a curvy older woman in porn typically associated with her boy toy Randy Spears, was up next as a grieving widow on the prowl, attacking Sascha on the bed. The garish nature of the furnishings aside, she was rejected and resorted to tricking him into the bedroom upstairs where she jumped his bones. After a few kisses, he gave in (this is porn after all) and soon stripped naked himself, eating her out as she spread her legs quite flexibly. She gave an okay hummer to him and they screwed vaginally, Sascha doing the work before rubbing out a wad onto her ass cheeks, the passive lay not at all what I expected from the situation that started with such promise.

Bonus Scene 3: Pipe Dreams w/ Janine & Venus & Manuel Ferrara:

My Little Devil: Janine Lindemulder, wearing more black bondage gear, was up last in bed with blindfolded Venus and Manuel Ferrara. Janine was particularly aggressive with both of her partners this time, dominating Venus with her paddle and some oral loving as Manuel gave the lady some oral herself. The ladies double teamed him orally and Janine even tossed his salad (rimmed his ass); the condom shown being put on this time (I actually appreciate seeing that act when they are to be worn). Venus rode him hard vaginally, as did Janine, before some toys and anal took place. Janine doing anal with a guy is rare on screen (Venus less so) and she seemed to be more active the entire scene so fans will have something appealing to remember her by if she sticks to her retirement this time. The scene ended with both gals taking the facial and giving him some post coital head. Whew! Reviewed by Don Houston

Bonus Scene 3 Miles From A Needle w/ April Blossom & Savanna Samson & James Deen:

sponsored by:

Over a plate of cold eggs and turkey-basted mystery brine, the creepiness continues for our girls, who are now cuffed and chained to their dining table seats.  Kimberly shouts and yells at Constance (James Deen), the youngest member of the unhinged clan, to keep his distance from the prisoners, though they do offer a group "hug" in concordance with his assistance once the room is clear of Mater and Pater. The trio move to his bedroom, and James tossed April onto the bed as he rushes to kiss Savanna.  They play along, but soon find that in a house like this, no one is ever really alone. Peeling back a curtain, the terrorized twins see Kimberly and Evan hackling away as they sit and watch the ordeal go down.  April channels her fury into pleasure as she gathers the lion's share of the action, though James doesn't neglect Savanna too often, either. A two-mouthed blow job (one on the balls, another on the chain) leads to an inordinate amount of boob squeezing and rubbing, followed by a plowing into April as Savanna queens her quivering face.  James flips over April for doggy as she noshes on Savanna's spread gooeyness, cycling into a pattern of reverse and standard cowgirl by each female companion.  Missionary with Savanna finishes off the groin-grabbling good time, and April  glints her shiny tongue out to carry James' gush down the reaches of her chin and neck (eventually giving Savanna a taste before it's all said and done).  A delectable amount of candy-pulling here, with the green-thumbed April showing off her skills in a stunning way.  But even those fine qualities can't save her from her tormentor's hand of chance, now forcing the two ladies into a darkened room of ill-repute. Thankfully, the duo thwarts their attacker, Evan, and run off to hide in the shadows of a garage stowaway nook, away from his stun gun, but in full view of Brian Surewood and Maria Belucci wrecking each other atop another bare mattress.

Bonus Scene 4: MILF WOOD USA w/ India Summer & James Deen:

 

Click For Trailer!

India Summer feels way too young to be here. She looks like she belongs in another flick. What the hell is going on here? She rides the cock, she sucks the cock, and she fucks it eight ways to Sunday. But, there's no real bite to the scene. What I need is something substantial to enjoy. There's nothing here. Therefore, I've got to call for a pass on this scene. Reviewed By Guy Incognito

Opening Scene:

 Faithless opens with Kelli putting on makeup and adjusting the white lacy under garments.  Her thoughts drift back to when she was with Voodoo at his garage. After  a  final look over into the mirror  she makes her  way  down stairs  where  Voodoo is  sitting on the  sofa. She pours them a drink then sits next to him. Voodoo goes on to tell her that they can't see each other any more and   of course Kelli thinks it has to do with her age.  They start to make out and one things leads to another. Kelli 's hands  start to  feel  up Voodoo's  crotch and  she  places her mouth on it  but  doesn't  follow  through with the  blowjob. Second later she is straddling him riding him RCG not hearing that her hubby and his daughter are coming into the house. Can we say busted!!! The scene   pans back to a month earlier before the affair starts. 

Scene 1: Daisy Marie & James Deen & Jennifer Dark & Voodoo:

Voodoo (Nico) shows  up at is  girlfriends Sarah's ( Daisy Marie) house meets the   dad  who points over to   Kelli who is on the rocks sunbathing topless. After  all the introductions are  done between  friends and nieghbors,  Daisy and  Voodoo get  away  by themselves to  a  supposedly  secluded  spot to get their  groove on. While they are   busy you see the other couple getting some action of their own. Both couples look good together and you can see some chemistry between Voodoo and Daisy.

Everyone's Getting a Piece of the Action!

Scene 2: Jennifer Dark & James Deen:

Jennifer and James leave nothing to chance after getting back to the garage still waiting more after their romp in the outdoors. James's  fingers  find the  right  spot to  get her  all  wet and  ready  for his mouth and  cock. James makes sure he   nails her both vaginally and anally without any second thoughts from Jennifer. A good scene but the camera man wasn't in tune with them as he veered off a few times.

Scene 3: Kelli McCarty & Steven St. Croix:

Kelli and Steven finally get the time alone that she's been wanting and they get very heated within moments. The only  thing is that  they  get interrupted  by  his  daughter Daisy pissing  off Kelli  who  walks off into the  bathroom. Once Steven gets rid of his daughter he goes over to Kelli hoping to pick up  where they  left off. Steven becomes the  aggressor forcing himself on  Kelli as she  fights her way  from him. There  is some  choking and  rough sex  going on in the  bathroom at some  point it  does  get to be too much. Eventually Kelli gives into  Steven and  they  end up  in their  bed with Kelli on top.

Scene 4: Kelly Leigh & Steven St. Croix:

After having sex with his wife,  Steven  still isn't  sexually satisfied. He goes over to Kelly's house and peeps through the small bathroom window. He sees her on the toilet seat playing with her clit. He walks in and literally shoves his cock into her mouth which Kelly gladly accepts. Steven drags her into the shower pressing her up against the wall for some doggie action. Soak and wet he takes her on her bed vaginally and anally in several positions before he unloads all over her leaving her tied up in the shower.

Scene 5: Kelli McCarty & Voodoo:

Kelli finally finds the courage within herself to show up at Voodoo's place of business. Once there she plays it coy at first till Voodoo makes the first move and she follows his lead. There is  a lot of  foreplay on Voodoo's  behalf but not as  much as there should be  from Kelli. The  scene  doesn't  come off as a  very  sexually heated one as it should especially  with both of them  wanting the other  so badly. Disappointingly enough  Kelli's  oral skills are very  lacking and  they  end  the scene with Voodoo  jerking off and unloading on Kelli.

The Ending:  I  guess  by now you already know how Faithless ends, but there is  still more that hasn't be  touched on by me. I suggest you watch it  through and  then  decided if its  worth the  rental or purchase..

Final Thoughts:Paul Thomas has always impressed me with his dark plots, twist and turns in the majority of his movies. In his  last  film " Cry Wolf" everything  came together  nicely, but in " Faithless" there was  an over  abundance of  unnecessary   dialogue and not  enough  sex. There were many times throughout the movie that the sex should have been added, giving more to the movie yet it lacked what his other features had to keep me interested. The  basis of his  movie  Faithless  touches on the sexually  frustrated and  neglected wife who is  resented  by  the  husbands daughter. Good idea yes.. Having the boyfriend and his best friend have the hots for the step mom another good idea.  It's something very natural that happens in every day life. Every women at  one time or another enjoys  that  feeling of  being  wanted and  lusted after by a younger man especially when they aren't getting it at home.

What Worked:

Horn Dog Voodoo!

Voodoo aka Nico: Voodoo   gave it his all playing the horn dog boyfriend who so wanted into Kelli's pants.

James Deen / Brian: Also showed his colors when it came to the Step Mom.

Daisy Marie aka Spoiled Bratt!

Daisy Marie/Sarah: The   spoiled brat that made it well known that she did not get along with the father's new wife. I expected to see a cat fight in a few scenes between them.... Oh Well....

Steven St. Croix/The Hubby: If his   role was meant to be a SOB then he nailed it right on the head. Steven has come   a very long way from when I first saw him almost   3 years ago when I first started reviewing. I  admire his  work  a lot and he is  among  the  few men  in  porn that I  enjoy watching for  his  acting  skills and his  skills in the  bedroom.

What Didn't Work:

Hershel Savage/ Simon : I don't  understand  what the purpose  was of  writing him into the  script  if  he wasn't  going to  be  having  sex  with  anyone. The  fact that  it  was implied that he was  having an  affair with  Kelli wasn't  enough  to  warrant him being in the  flick.

Jennifer Dark

Jennifer Dark/ Brian's GF:I  excepted her to  be more  catty in certain  situation  with  Daisy and her  Step Mom.

James Deen/ Brian: Understandably so that a  male  had to be  written into the  scene to  compensate for  Hershel's non sex  role and as Jennifer's BF. 

Kelly Leigh/Hershel's Wife:  Her scene with Steven wasn't one that you can say they had   chemistry together. The camera man seemed to pan away a lot and not show their faces. I'm one that   while  watching  enjoys  watching the  facial expressions to see if  they are  just  clock  watching or  actually into the other.

Kelli McCarthy/Kalli:  I have  seen  Kelli in  late  night soft  core that really  didn't  impress me  either. Her acting abilities are decent enough for soap operas but an over kill in porn. I used to watch her in NBC's Passions and   didn't like her then because she came off too slutty for her own good. I thought that would have carried over to porn but it  didn't. Kelli  came off too  innocent  for her own  good and the  fact that  she  didn't know how to  give a  guy a  blow job was a kill  joy. I mean everyone has given head at one time or another in their lives. In her scene with Voodoo a lot of oral is given to her which is a good thing  for  the  couples watching Faithless. Not everyone is made to be in adult movies and it shows with Kelli. Her acting skills are made more for mainstream than porn. Kelli isn't the most attractive looking  woman I've  seen but  apparently she has  something that made Vivid take a  glance at her.

The Camera Man/Ralph Parfait: My gripes with the camera are few and well noted. In the  majority of the  scenes you  panned  away  from  the  faces of the performers  showing  only  the  upper  or lower torsos. There wasn't  a lot of penetration shown in either of Kelli's scenes  which  were with covered with someone's hand or not shown at  all.

Overall for her first  real  taste of the  adult  films, Kelli has  a lot of  work to  do if she is  serious  about her crossover  from mainstream to porn. She has a lot of competition out there from all the younger ladies and seasoned female performers that have worked to perfect the right image they want to get across.

As  I said  before  this  wasn't one of  PT's best but baring a  extremely  long storyline  it's  worth a  " Rent It" for those who want to see the  former Miss USA  getting banged and man handled by  hubby.
