Hanna's House (SD and Blu-ray)

Vivid Entertainment

Genre: All Sex

Director: B. Skow

Cast: Hanna Hilton, Rocco Reed, Rayveness, Allyssa Hall, David Loso, Hanna Hilton, Chris Johnson, Meggan Mallone

Length: 164:40 minutes

Hanna Hilton with Rocco Reed

Date of Production: 11/19/2009

Extras: My favorite related extra was the 4:50 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Shylar Cobi. The footage really did not give a lot to work with but fans of the cast will appreciate seeing them prepare for their respective scenes all the same. There was then a sort of highlight reel from five scenes on the SD version of the release, lasting 40:42 minutes and showing some of the best parts of the action (scene clips from The Nikki Jayne Experiment, Nurse Monique, On The Couch, Strictly Conversation, and Sugar). The Blu-ray version tried something different by offering somewhat longer clips from Strictly Conversation and Sugar, each clocking in around 10 minutes long but far from their original splendor for those keeping track, so you get about the same amount of footage on each version of the movie, the Blu-ray version in high definition. There was then a biography for Hanna Hilton, some trailers, spam, and a photogallery (the Blu-ray dropping the minimalist stuff though).

Condoms: None

Rayveness with Rocco Reed

Audio/Video Quality: Hanna's House was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec in 480p resolution for the SD version and the 1080i/VC-1 codec for the superior looking Blu-ray version. For those unfamiliar with his background, suffice it to say that his experience outside of porn is superior to many inside the industry and it shows up in his movies, including this one as it was shot in 1080i high definition (using those Canon's Skow favors), making the Blu-ray version of it look much better. The editing was not as polished this time, "Harry Crumb" credited with those duties, and post production was again handled by Kyle Caruso. The composition of the camera angles was often optimal to capture the raw energy of the scenes but frequently required shooting into the light causing color saturation issues, giving it a different look than many of Skow's previous works. The fleshtones were fairly accurate (some tint issues did exist) though but the DVD mastering was well done (if only in a bitrate hovering around 3.8 Mbps in SD and 15.1 Mbps in the high definition Blu-ray), making it a mixed bag in terms of visual quality; leaning towards slightly above average (if on the low side for Skow himself). There was a company watermark that I wasn't too keen on but most of the camera work seemed to keep this in mind, keeping the majority of action far away from the lower right hand corner. I really preferred the high definition version this time, the problems with the technical aspects mitigated somewhat but I will go on record as preferring the director's more polished efforts over the various experiments he tried here. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in 192 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) offering with the vocals sounding flat and the music pretty decent. For some reason, the levels were about the same as usual but aside from the added background noise, the dynamic range was average and the separation of the vocal track nonexistent. For an all sex vignette though, it was a sufficient soundtrack with minimalist leanings most of you will appreciate over loud generic music found elsewhere.

Body of Review: B. Skow is the catalyst at Vivid Entertainment these days, bringing with him a sense of renewal as a director that the company has needed for a long time. While not exactly the fault of their remaining directorial staffer, the company continued to follow a set path for far too long, growing complacent even before the industry found itself in dire economic straits. Thankfully, Skow is equally proficient with gonzo as well as all sex vignette efforts, his best work being the manner in which he brings newcomers into the industry or his showcase titles that feature the contracts stars so many fans adore. Such was the case with his latest title, Hanna's House, a title best described as a tribute to lovely Hanna Hilton, though the other ladies certainly added some appeal as well. The back cover described the movie like this: "B. Skow followed Hanna around her house for a few days and shot everything in sight. Hanna has sex every morning with her man, and it's raunchy, uninhibited and totally wild. She has beautiful, natural d-cups and an ass sculpted by the gods. At around noon, she has friends over, and the sex pretty much continues all day. Meggan Mallone, Alyssa Hall, Rayveness, you name it...they all come over and they never stop coming. This is reality sex at it's finest." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Hanna Hilton

Scene One: Hanna Hilton, the hotty featured on the front cover, was up first as she laid in bed half nude, her ample breasts just begging for Rocco Reed to play with them. She was asleep when he came upon her and she slowly stirred as his touch awakened her frisky side, the guy climbing into bed with her to orally service her to her delight. This was a quiet (well, except for the planes flying back overhead) scene, her lean musculature grinding into his face as his tongue moistened her labia. This continued until she gave him a sweet little blowjob (proving she was far from a stranger at sucking a cock) and they vaginally screwed in several positions. It took her awhile to warm up but when she did, she was dynamite, some taste testing enhancing her score in the scene almost as much as the way she continued to look directly at his eyes, the fantasy that they were real life lovers secure from the viewers point of view. The scene ended when he rubbed out a wad of genetic juice onto her breasts, Hanna providing some post coital head to cap the scene very nicely.

Meggan Mallone with Chris Johnson

Scene Two: Rayveness, a curvy MILF looking as sexy as she ever did in her youth, was up next bringing some pie to Rocco Reed. Thematically, the offering foreshadowed what was set to happen next, the gal seeking to convince him to upgrade his partner from Hanna to herself. He was set on taking care of his own business but when she joined him in the home office, it didn't take long for her to force his hands (all over her tits). Under her short black dress was some sexy, traditional lingerie and she showed him what lied underneath as well as put on a tease show, some masturbation leading to Rocco going down on her. She reciprocated and showed how much more experience she had with a pecker in her mouth, the vaginal plowing leading to her fingering her own ass as show impaled herself on his cock. Just when I thought he was going to shove his dick in her ass, he unleashed his seed to her face, the trail of population pudding clearly seen.

Shylar had a cameo role in front of the camera too

Scene Three: Allyssa Hall, a perky little babe with various shades of hair coloring, was up next as she gave a live camera internet show to moper David Loso. Allyssa is a natural tease and does so with a lot of dirty talk, but it was even better when he walked in the house to join her. It did not take long for her to get his pants off and his cock inside of her mouth, the guy returning the favor of oral though not as skillfully as she had been (I gave him a few extra points for being into it though). The various positions of vaginal pounding showed her to be another decent rider of cock, largely limited by the guy she was working with here, the chemistry between them less than what took place in the prior two scenes but still evident in smaller quantities. His load went to her mouth and she seemed to enjoy it, taking matters into her own hand since he was so nervous.

Scene Four: Hanna Hilton, this time in grey sweats outside on a mat, was up next as she exercised. Her breasts were so large they were falling out of her top, the tightness of the outfit leaving little to the imagination as moper Chris Johnson tended the garden. The basic set up was that she was a MILF and he was too young for her, the reality being nothing realistically like that. The scene then kicked into fantasy mode with her wearing neon green bikini undies, some more tease leading to her seduction act where he gave her some head. Hanna liked it nearly as much as in the first scene too, his cock less to her liking from the expressions on her face but the gal showing a willingness to try him out all the same. The vaginal sex showed she was still a bit rough around the edges too, their rhythm never quite in synchronization with one another though the pounding showing they made the best of it all the same. They managed to paw each other like teenagers before doing all the sex by the noisy pool, the pop shot landing mostly on her tits before it ended.

Scene Five: Meggan Mallone, the cute contract gal seen on the left hand side of the cover, was up last in what was largely a filler scene, the lady bringing lunch to Chris Johnson and wanting some loving in return. She was all over him and they went inside, tearing at one another's clothing as they made out on the loveseat, Meggan coming across like she had a need for seed. Her cutoff shorts hide her firm little ass too, Chris wanting to lick it to get her juiced up. He continued going down on her until she slobbed his knob, the active vaginal riding laced with taste testing and her playful sense of self shown really well. She initiated some of the rough stuff too, slapping at him and teasing him to get a better performance than Hanna did, largely working for those paying attention and elevating the worth of the scene in terms of replay value. It was an active ride though and some minor choking aside, it should serve as inspirational to even the most squeamish among you without lowering its standards.

Bonus Scene: The Nikki Jayne Experiment: Allyssa Hall, a cute brunette with an all natural body, was up next on a colorful couch outside as she masturbated, the short tease footage handled in a dreamy soft focus before it was thankfully dropped when moper Alec Knight came to eat her out. Allyssa seemed to appreciate his oral attentions but much of it struck me as faked, the semi-POV way it was shot adding some heat for me even if they had no chemistry. She watched the camera intensely as she slobbed his knob too, her vaginal screwing quite passive until she was on top of his lap. Allyssa did some oral clean up a few times (PTM) between positions but she was not enthusiastic about working with the guy from what I could see, still looking fetching to me though even if it wasn't very strokable. The junkyard look of the setting was kind of interesting too and if you read between the lines very well, a reviewer describing the setting this far into the scene should tell you a few things about the relative filler nature of the scene itself. Allyssa has untapped potential but it wasn't put to use here, this being the first scene of the second disc did not help matters much and I did not believe her in the slightest when she claimed to be ready to "come again" since there was no evidence of her ever coming in the scene. Alec jerked off to her mouth at the end of the scene but she focused on the camera as if skeptical about her partner's prowess.

Bonus Scene: Nurse Monique: Monique's husband is killed, thus starting her quest to find Dr. Dick. Monique meets Lexi Love and the two girls share their love of Dr. Dick. After a quick drink, they share their love of mutual masturbation. It's pretty hot, but you've seen this before. The novelty of these two porn starlets coming together for a fingerbang wares off pretty quickly. But, them's the breaks. (review by Guy Incognito)

Bonus Scene: On The Couch: Nikki Jayne, the beauty featured on the front cover, was up first in the messy garage, wearing a white top but no pants, beckoning moper Chris Johnson to fuck her. She provided some dirty talk that I really liked but then there was a jumped cut to him boning her from behind in a standing doggy. Many of the product labels were blurred out and the company logo in the lower right hand corner was as painful as the buzzing of the airplanes in the background, Nikki bringing me back to reality by turning around to slob his knob with a degree of enthusiasm that would drain most men within seconds. While he licked her slightly too, she provided by far the most oral of the scene, finally getting a chance to actively ride his pecker when she was on top of him as he laid on the floor. It ended when he rubbed out a load of genetic juice to her stomach but they were rushed to get dressed due to a story part of the show.

Bonus Scene: Strictly Conversation: Back at the restaurant, Meggan Mallone and Ramon are kissing and pawing each other. During his snatch dessert, the camera moves a lot which is very distracting. However, when the actual fucking begins, it becomes a bit more steadier. Her blowjob is very intoxicating and sensuous. A nice missionary follows. There are various camera angles and it works out well. The doggie experience is nice-looking. All of a sudden, Lorena Sanchez catches them fooling around and gets into the action. She kisses Meggan. Then, Ramon screws her from behind as she focuses on eating Ms. Mallone's sexual plaything. The threesome make a very good collaboration. The women sizzle together. (review by Apache Warrior)

Bonus Scene: Sugar: The first scene brings out Hannah, as a photographer's model, and pairs her with one of the best dick-slingers in the biz, Jack Venice. Between his massive, well-controlled fuckstick and her incredibly lusty eyes, wanting mouth and unbelievable natural breasts, this is simply a great couple to watch fuck. After warming up with a thick vibe in her snatch (and looking terrific doing it), Hannah turns her attention to Jack's tool, giving him a wet, thorough beej (staring into your eyes), before he returns the favor by eating her amazingly hairless cunt out. The thing I was most looking forward to was seeing how her breasts moved while getting railed, and with Jack on hand, I knew he'd give her a workout. I was not disappointed. When he bends her over and pounds her canine style, the way her tits sway might be the sexy thing I've ever seen. It's an overall terrific scene. (review by Chris Knight)

Summary: Hanna's House by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment might not have been his best work to date but I gave serious consideration to rating it even higher than Recommended. The sex was fun, frisky, and even solid in terms of replay value & strokability but the quality of the men limited just how good the performances could be. Still, Hanna was a hotty as was Meggan and the other two ladies, the realistic audio track a nice surprise over the overproduced scores so prevalent to porn these days. In short, Hanna's House provided two full scenes of Hanna Hilton getting busy, lengthy scenes that will serve many of you repeatedly compared to the truncated "sex gets in the way" type scenes Skow's peers at the company tend to shot these days, the buildup of tension and chemistry pretty good to my way of thinking.
