Audio/Video Quality: Bitchcraft 6 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 480p 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 3.9 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.
Satine Phoenix and Soma Snakeoil
Body of Review: Jake Malone is one of the few people in porn trying to provide an alternative to the generic gonzo offerings available these days, occasionally pushing the limits of taste beyond what even some of his fans appreciate. That doesn't seem to deter the director from trying new things or finding all new ways to push the limits of the often exceptional ladies he employs, Jake knowing that it is better to lead than sit on his hands or merely follow. His latest outing is called Bitchcraft 6: Girls That Play Rough: Special Set, a double disc set as welcome as Bitchcraft 5 was last year. The series is best known for all the heated lesbian role playing that takes place in the scenes, the kink factor exceptionally higher than most lesbian flicks outside of what Belladonna provides. The company website described the movie like this: "Jake Malone is a true connoisseur of girl-on-girl aggression, and his Bitchcraft series showcases some of the most hardcore lesbian D&S play available on disc without a prescription! The twisted fucking bitches and sweet, obedient submissives in Bitchcraft 6 don't need a man around to indulge in their shameless acts of wanton perversion and anal mayhem... they like it this way. If you like your girl/girl porn with a rough, anal, fem-dom edge, you must get this! ...Wicked, wicked bitchcraft! The Bitchcraft 6 DVD is being released as a 2-disc set that includes 32 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage, a bonus ass-eating threeway from Bitchcraft 2 (starring young Shawna Lenee, leather-clad Kim Kane and feisty little Amber Rayne) and nine Jake Malone trailers." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Ariel X and Sinn Sage
Scene One: Kristina Rose, the sweet little brunette seen on the bottom of the front cover kneeling over to reveal her splendid ass, was up first as the fuck toy of blond Sammie Rhodes, the gal in blue using her as a foot stool on the cover. Sammie has long proven her worth as a dominant in such scenes, her love of fresh meat in this basement scene clear and palpable as she slowly eased Kristina into the role she was born to play. Kristina was receptive to the caresses and sweet talk but Sammie made it clear from the onset that she was the one setting the rules and she was going to really push Kristina's limits. Forcing Kristina to worship her pussy, Sammie grabbed her hair and forced her to eat at the Y, the dirty talk getting more outlandish as the scene progressed. Kristina's ample ass did not escape attention either as it was smacked around with a flogger after some face sitting and other oral work so heatedly applied. Sammie ate Kristina's ass too, moving to penetrate it with her fingers and large glass/plastic toy (with ATM) after some oiling up. The extended anal penetration led to Sammie engaging in some food fetish action involving a cupcake spread on Kristina's ass, the "porn whore" shitting out milk that was apparently inserted during an off camera enema for licking off the floor. There was no genetic juice or population pudding included in the scene but it was a darned sight hotter than most of their scenes with men to say the least.
Sophie Dee and Samantha Bourdain
Scene Two: Anastasia Pierce and Cecilia Vega, a couple of foreign fetish enthusiasts, were up next after some phone sex in French, their PVC clothing emphasizing their sleek physiques. Once the tease was over, they ended up in an unfinished warehouse of sorts, a hydraulic lift employed to allow for Cecilia to be suspended from mid air as she was abused. Anastasia spanked her, fucked her ass, and used a variety of toys on her too, including some electricity generating devices that seemed to hurt as they were applied, the gal jumping as they were applied. There was a lot of oral and anal (with toys) here throughout the scene, the ladies sometimes uneven as they would bounce between performing for the camera and genuinely getting off on what was taking place. It lacked some of the fun factor the previous scene had but if you enjoy seeing a gal that likes getting roughed up in a variety of ways, this will be for you.
Scene Three: Harmony Rose, another blond well known in hardcore lesbian circles, and Sarah Faye, a cute newcomer, were up next in a stylish tribute to the Bataan death marches of the 1940's as Harmony led her submissive by leash along a winding road (in black and white). Sarah wore a short neon pink dress and a horse head mask while Harmony seemed to appreciate her stripper lingerie mixed with Tom Petty looking top hat and wild glasses look more. There was some tease here but it was semi-serious as Harmony took charge of her with some occasional roughness. The outdoor flogging led to the pair in a dungeon where things took a turn for the heated, Harmony establishing the rules as she made it clear who was the boss. The slapping, spanking, clawing, dirty abuse talk, and other tricks were such that Sarah had to like what was going on (showing her wetness as a result), the oral service of her boss making it all worthwhile. There was choking and large dildos used on Sarah too but Harmony was happy with the oral service she was given, especially the rimming she received from her charge. Nice!
Scene Four: Satine Phoenix and Soma Snakeoil were up next in the last scene of the first disc. Initially, they engaged in electro play while wearing fetish clothing, including an SS hat and a red catwoman mask, the sparks amusing if only because neither started off as the submissive. The duel they began with reminded me of an adult Star Wars, Satine ending up in the lead role. The dark dungeon was fun but the better lit throne room was better, Satine demanding a floorshow dance as she flogged Soma (who was laughing, so not a "true" subbie). They orally serviced each other and did some face sitting before changing to a sterile looking medical room. Satine then sat on top of a cage for Soma to suck clean from the hole in the top. Soma also got a spanking and more roughness applied to her, including anal penetration via a toy (upon which time, they switched roles for Soma to be dominant). It was a fun scene in a few ways, not least of which the way they traded positions and kept it light while still pushing their respective limits.
Scene Five: Ariel X and Sinn Sage, the ladies seen on the middle of the right hand side of the cover, were up next as the first scene of the second disc, dressed in fetish attire as Ariel choked and otherwise dominated Sinn (who was bound to a chair by tape). This was one of the more serious scenes, Ariel pushing Sinn substantially while beating her, sitting on her face, and shoving a dildo up her ass. There was a lot of spitting here and dirty talk, both going down on each other before they went outside on the cloudy day. The outdoor oral intermission led to more spanking and suspension from the wrists, even a machine used as an industrial strength vibrator (that drove Sinn crazy wet). The fluids flew all over the place and some ending cupcake-in-the-ass eating sequence was strangely erotic.
Scene Six: Sophie Dee, the gal sitting on the face of Samantha Bourdain on the cover (upper left hand side), were up last as the pair had a scene in the living room. This was the only scene where Jake's vocals were deployed in any measurable manner, Sophie serving as the "cunt police" to investigate her "fuck pig" submissive. Sophie is well known in Jake's fuck flicks as a total player (on both sides of the fetish coin) and she provided a nice capper to the rest of the scenes in the movie yet again, treating her submissive to a bout of lesbian boning that would not be soon forgotten. Samantha was plain looking here with minimal make up, looking younger than ever as she was looking towards the camera while being spanked. The marks left on Samantha's leg/ass were a lot nastier looking than usual too, the "fuck pig" enjoying it nonetheless as she went down on Sophie. The rest of the scene added in a variety of elements used in the previous scenes, the theme of the day catered to very well as Jake remained mostly quiet once they were in full slut mode. Sophie then masturbated to a fluid result, spraying Samantha with her "squirt" to be licked off the floor. With more oral to be had, the scene ended with Samantha publically stating her acceptance of her role.
Bonus Scene: Bitchcraft 2: Shawna Lenee, Amber Rayne, and Kimberly Kane, were up next as the trio repeated the first scene thematically as Shawna became a slave to the desires of the others. There were more lesbian antics outside with the soft focus camera this time but once the stark realities of the living room were introduced, Kimberly became the dominant player of the scenario with Amber backing her up. There was a fair amount of lesbian licking, spitting, and slightly rough stuff going on too; the props including a shoe that strapped into the mouth as well as various implements used to spank and beat each other. Shawna was a net giver of head here but all of the ladies seemed acquainted with the idea of oral love; lots of ass licking taking place at regular intervals in the scene too. The penetrative toys took awhile to be introduced with Kimberly showing Amber who was boss too; an anal plug stuffed in her ass in a "learning experience". By that point in time, the amount of anal went crazy with the numerous toys, Kimberly giving in to her submissive side too as Shawna took control of her former oppressors.
Summary: Bitchcraft 6 by director Jake Malone for Evil Angel provided exactly what was advertised, though a few of the ladies were a lot more into the BDSM role playing than others. I rated it as Recommended but if you're into abuse porn with lesbian action as the central theme, I found most of the scenes to be far more erotic than Belladonna's titles or the watered down action most of the industry provides at this writing so adjust your rating accordingly. If you hate seeing women get off with other women in such a manner, by all means stay away, but if you're looking for something edgier than average (by far), you may find this a heated treat in smaller doses. In short, Bitchcraft 6: Girls That Play Rough: Special Set was much like Bitchcraft 5 except for an equally solid cast, the action something you can count on as spank bank material for a long time to cum.
