Audio/Video Quality: The Twilight Zone Porn Parody was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director Paul Thomas for Hustler Video using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec in 480p resolution for the SD version. While not his most visually stunning work of late, it reminded me of some of Paul's earlier works at Vivid, this being his first credited title since shown the door at his former long time employer last year. The composition of the camera angles was fairly good this time, the director balancing his usual dedication to plot over sex with a new crew that were not credited in the movie, the cover credits suggesting Brian Christopher edited it while Paul and Tony G. co-wrote it. While the editing was on the choppy side, it did seem to mirror a mainstream dynamic (except when the sex began each time), the impression that it was shot using a single camera left clearly in my mind. The fleshtones were generally accurate though and the DVD mastering was well done (the bitrate hovering around 6.2 Mbps in SD), making the majority of footage well handled (the sex scenes appeared to be on the saturated side again). There was no company watermark here, a fact that should appeal to Paul's fans out there. 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, some of the score meriting a nod from me.

Body of Review: Paul Thomas is one of the most award winning directors still alive in porn, his newest home being Hustler Video after his departure from Vivid. Unlike his previous works, he is now more directly subject to consumer demands as the company is simply distributing his movies, time will tell if tending to his artistic muse will result in the accolades he sought while under contract. His first movie for Hustler is called The Twilight Zone Porn Parody, the concept full of wonderful possibilities given the popularity and ingrained nature of the Rod Serling classic show from the early days in television, my initial impression that the movie was decidedly light on the usual parody aspects so many consumers have found to their liking. By this, I mean that there was weak narration, no rip-off theme music to convince you it was stolen from the show, and the ending twist that to this day rules in many shows and movies, was on the lame side, my resulting belief being that the movie title was not earned in the slightest. Still, with hotties like Kimberly Kane fresh off her sure to be award winning performance in The Sex Files 2 and the mighty Evan Stone trying his hand at drama (as opposed to his wonderful persona in Sex & The City XXX), I figured it might be worth looking into even if the title was merely a marketing trick. The back cover described the movie like this: "Venture Lane. A quiet, wholesome place. Where sex is something kept behind closed doors. Home to the tortured thoughts, emotions and desires to be found only in the hearts and minds of repressed men and women. Unfulfilled passion and jealousy can provide fertile ground for real evil..." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Chayse Evans with Jack Lawrence

Scene One: Jessica Jaymes, a curvy brunette with pretty eyes, was up first as she lounged on the couch with the mighty Evan Stone, her flimsy green dress revealing a lot even before he brushed it aside. Evan went down on her fairly actively, her repetitive groans and grunts sounding kind of mechanical to me even if he was servicing her fairly well. Jessica then jumped his bone orally, using some hand to gland combat to increase the friction though her eye contact was only intermittent. They then engaged in a very short vaginal penetration, the resulting wad of genetic juice landing on her lower abdomen.

Scene Two: Kylee Reese and Chayse Evans, both light haired lasses with appealing bodies, were up next in a bedroom as they took off their clothing and played with one another's tits. They did manage to use some fingers for initial penetration but ended up using the black dildo vaginally with a touch of anal before the short scene finished up. They were loud and seemed to have fun but it was strictly a paint by numbers lesbian scene with modest replay value.

Scene Three: Kimberly Kane, Kylee Reese, and Eric Swiss, were up next after the ladies became better acquainted in the bathroom. There was some cunnilingus and toy use, rimming and caressing before Eric was given a blowjob by Kylee in the attached bedroom as Kimberly masturbated on the toilet some more. The trio then went to bed where the ladies shared his cock orally, both gals getting a single position of vaginal penetration before he beat off to Kylee's ass. There was a lot of untapped potential here but suffice it to say, even they were not at their best.

Scene Four: Chayse Evans, next up as the other woman, seduced frisky Jack Lawrence right after he went on a tirade about sexual decadence. They kissed and he spread her out on the dining table, going down on her before she gave him a truncated blowjob. That led to a few positions of vaginal penetration, her initial lack of active riding weakening the scene for me. She did do some taste testing and when she was on top of him, she proved to be a better (more active) cock rider, saving the scene by coming across as into the action. The scene ended when he rubbed out a nut of population pudding to her tits, Chayse giving him some post coital head to close it up.

Scene Five: Kimberly Kane, Jessica Jaymes, Eric Masterson, and Evan Stone, were up last in the living room at night. The ladies wore dresses much more indicative of the mid to late 1960's instead of the time period quoted, Jessica seducing Eric to go down on her while Evan ate out Kimberly. The couples stayed together for a bit, Evan porking Kimberly vaginally before she finally took a cock up her ass, the limited penetration leading to Jessica getting a wad of spunk on her stomach while Kimberly milked Evan dry of some semen to her ass cheek.

Summary: The Twilight Zone Porn Parody by director Paul Thomas for Hustler Video was definitely darker than the original series but more in line with re-imagined versions that came out decades later, it just repeatedly failed to provide anything truly connected with the show it was supposedly parodying so I rated it as a Rent It. The sex was standard enough and Kimberly Kane even did some anal in the end, but the lack of personal chemistry between the partners and the mechanical sex they engaged in for limited amounts of time (the whole show clocked in at under 90 minutes) made me wonder if it was rushed into production to make it for this time of year; perhaps someone thinking Paul could rest on his previous laurels. I really wanted this one to be as good as some of the shills suggested, as much for the "Paul Thomas as an underdog" dynamic or the fact that I've long held the various incarnations of the Rod Serling classic as often some of the best writing on television but I even watched it a second time with friends who looked at me like I was crazy when I said it was a parody. In short then, The Twilight Zone Porn Parody would have been an okay middle of the week rental had it been labeled as something closer to what it really was, the darker thematic material suitable for those that are not crazy about the parody genre having become so prevalent in the industry but it barely pulled in a rental status thanks to Kimberly Kane and others looking ripe for the plucking, saying a lot about what you should expect.
