 Dorcel Teaser: What is the price of immortality? That's what Cecile wonders while looking at her sleeping partner. Some centuries earlier, she became immortal and her life became a whirl where men and women play the most perverted games. From sweet lesbian caresses to harsh penetrations, from expert fellatios to the most ardent sodomies, from elegant female masturbations to frenzied double penetrations- the desired are always satisfied. A string of fantastic scenes of extreme eroticism, lead by the enchanting Melissa Lauren.

 The Movie:  Cecile  who is  played by Melissa Lauren leads  us  down a  very  perversed  road of  what  should be the  life of a newly born  vampire  but  the  story is  so confusing which  in my  opinion porn shouldn't  be confusing at  all. Another thing that  catches my eye is how  can you call it  vampire porn if the  performers aren't  wearing  fangs and  show no  resemblance of a  vampire at  all. Granted it  has  three  orgy scene that bleed  right into the other and  offer no real  stimulation where as the b/g scenes are  more arousing all together. But it  does have its perks  for those that  came  keep up with the confusion.

 The DVD:


Ritual directed  by Moiré Candy,  produced by Marcel Dorcel and distributed  by Wicked  Pictures is  presented in is  2.0 Dolby Digital Surround Sound and in  an anamorphic 16.9 widescreen format. Filmed in French, the option menus lets you chose the language. It was very interesting watching an adult title and reading the captions. The audio  dubbing wasn't the  greatest  but in the long  run  it  really  didn't  matter that much  especially  during the  sex scenes. The lighting was off by  a lot and  there was  a lot of  grain to the  picture  quality , and  the  flesh  tones came off  rather  dull. The lighting at times was too soft and there was a lot of shadowing in the background.

 Opening Scene: Cecile played  by  Melissa  Lauren  does the  scene  narrations as she  explains how her life has  changed as  an  immortal. She goes through time giving the viewers a glance back to the past in her future life. Things don't go as she thought they would be as she stated.. "A newly awakened Vampire".

 Scene 1: Julie Silver, Martin Schneider, Melissa Lauren, Oliver Sanchez, Regina Ice ,Suzie Carina, Veronica De Souza :

 In  the  first of  three orgy scenes,  lasting roughly  fifteen minutes this a mindless  fucking free  for all with plenty  of  action for  everyone's tastes. With   the entire cast partially dressed and wearing feathered mask they pair up with two others engaging in b/g/g and  g/g or b/g/b. The scene contains so much for one to   focus on entirely. The couple go through just about every vaginal and anal sexual position including DP action ending with the pop shot ending as a facial or a body shot.

 Scene 2: Melissa Lauren, Sean:

 The scene opens with Melissa looking at what looks like bite marks on her neck and thinking to herself how and when  it happen. There is a flashback in her mind back to the orgy in a different time and place. Her vampyric appetite needs to be sated and she finds her current bedmate t that proves to be more than a satisfying morsel for her. Melissa gets to work on his cock giving him a BJ with a condom on (why?????) He gets right to work   doing her in mish while she drifts back and forth  from the  images from her past life and  the  orgies. She  then  takes control  riding him vigorously before he  does her doggie  and  unloads on her ass.

 Scene 3: Keana Moiré, Martin Schneider, Natalli Di Angelo, Suzie Carina, Tarra White,Wein Lewis:

In present day time Melissa find some refuge in the idea that the son of who made her a vampire might have a cure for what ails her. Inside his home you have couples paired off doing their own thing.  There is ample amount of vaginal and anal penetration with butt plugs and dildos for everyone's taste. Each  of the ladies  end up either  getting  the  guys  load on their  face ,breast or ass.

 Scene 4: Leny Ewil, Julie Silver:

Coming inside after sunbathing  Julie and  Leny start  to make up  by the  fireplace place then  take it over to the couch were one thing leads to another and they are giving the  other  oral. Leny gets right to  work nailing her  in mish then  spoon and cg before he  unloads on her body.

 Scene 5: Eufrat, Michele, Sarah Twain:

 Out on his boat they indulge in a smaller orgy  with the  ladies getting deep into the  other in a  nice g/g threesome while the captain takes on two of the ladies sharing his cock with them equally with the ladies sharing  his load  between them.

 Scene 6: Claudia Rossi, Neo :

 Claudia  shows off her  wares in a  corset  type  dress which  gives Neo the  easy access his fingers  need  to get her pussy  primed for his  cock. After  eating her out he  nails her up against the  wall in standing  doggie, then  takes her over to the  couch where  Claudia mounts up for CG and ARCG and  Anal  spoon with him unloading outside of her.

Scene 7: Claudia Rossi, Melissa Lauren:

 When it comes to g/g scenes, not all of them leave a lasting impression on me.. Well this one did.. These two ladies go at it without the use of any toys to get the other off.

What Worked:

  1-  From what I saw, the male talent had a choice of wearing a condom. The ones that didn't gave more of a vigorous pounding while the others were just ok.

  2-  I did like the Victorian setting they used and the choice of masks for the men and ladies.

  3-  Sex is sex no matter what language the movie is in.. It's just funnier listening to the cast dirty talking in every language offered.

 What Didn't:

 1- My  pet  peeve  when it comes to porn is when the  performers aren't  all listed and one  has to  attempt to indentify  them. That drives me insane. Male talent especially!

  2- An  orgy scene that is  too busy to  focus  in on just one  couple.  I can just  picture a guy  with his  cock in his hand  whacking off and  unable to  get off because of all the  jumping  around from  couple to  couple.

  3- In other  Dorcel  films that I have  reviewed, the dubbing and  subtitles weren't as  poorly  done as  in Ritual.

 4-When  porn writers try  to work in the  vampire  theme into its  story they  should be clear in classifying what  kind of  vampire they are  referring too..  A Sexual Vampire feeds off the energy and emotions during sex which is what I am amusing what they are trying to get across but then  show the  vampire bites on Melissa's throat.

 5-A blowjob with a condom on (Scene 2)?? Explain that? What was the purpose of it? And  why you  even  consider doing so with how condom friendly  titles  tend not to fair as well as no condom use at  all?

 Final Thoughts: Director Moiré Candy had their hands full while working on Ritual. From what I saw, they tried to put too much into the orgy scenes and not enough in the b/g scenes. The orgy scenes had too much going on all at once making it difficult to enjoy( for me at least). All of the technical issues which I noted prior took very little a way from the performers and their coupling on screen. I would have preferred that they had used  English  subtitles instead of the other options but one cant have  everything  they  want  from Dorcel Films.

 As a  couple friendly porn, I had a  hard time  rating it just on the  sex alone and   finally  ended up with a " Rent It" because of the overkill . Sometimes too much isn't worth it or  the time  one  puts into watching it and  just might end up turning it off and  popping in something else to  watch...
