Cast: Charley Chase, Mark Wood, Ashli Orion, Misti Dawn, Riley Evans, Andy San Dimas Non-sex role: Belladonna
Length: 136:30 minutes
Date of Production: 7/15/2010
Extras: The first disc included 39:49 minutes of Behind the Scenes footage that included interviews, nudity, and additional sexual material. There was then an 18:03 minute long glory hole scene with Belladonna (and presumably Aiden), shot crudely and in grainy fashion but entertaining all the same. There was then a cumshot recap, a cast list, and list of content from the second disc along with some websites. The second disc was similar to the first except for the extensive nature of the extras, the movie completely contained on the first disc. The Behind the Scenes feature this time lasted 190:56 minutes (wow!) with a lot more interview material, Bella and Aiden interacting with the cast, and more insight into the movie being made. There was another copy of the cast list, some websites, filmographies, and three trailers too but it was the BTS that really rocked.

Audio/Video Quality: Belladonna's Hole in the Wall was presented in the usual 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Belladonna for Evil Angel in a standard definition release using the MPEG-2 codec with 480 resolution. As expected, the mixed level of lighting resulted in some grain and video noise, the creative team behind the project focusing on raw energy and kink over technical superiority, most of the scenes looking unpolished and rough. Still, the action was clear enough and fetish fans will find the sheer amount of kinky fuck for the buck to be enough to largely compensate for the technical limitations that still remain. The camera angles were a mixed batch and the video bitrate hovered in the high 5.9 Mbps area when I spot checked it, nothing out of the ordinary for the company but it did not look nearly as harsh as some of the smaller fetish companies either. In any case, the audio was presented in a similar fashion with a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in the usual 192 Kbps bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate) offering that sounded hollow with no separation between the channels and no music to bore you with. There were some off camera noises at times and a few bits of vocal acting that could have been done over to sound better but the visuals were the worst part of this section.
Body of Review: Belladonna has long been one of the most popular performers in porn, her work behind the camera for Evil Angel even pushing the limits of gonzo far more than most of her peers are willing to try. Her latest release is a bit of a thematically edgy movie called Belladonna's Hole in the Wall, my biggest initial complaint being that the director only has a non-sex role outside of the extras. That said, the focus here was on glory holes, those holes made by people wanting to remain anonymous in public settings as they sought sexual satisfaction from strangers. Most people are familiar with the glory holes found in porn video arcades or certain well used bathrooms, the idea being that brave souls can stick their erections into the holes not knowing what the person looks like, what they will do to them, and it takes a very brave type of individual to engage in such activities. The action here included some limited condom use (not much) but was best described as heated trysts shot in a very raw manner to present a lot of energy by the cast. The credited meat puppet was Mark Woods and while not exactly a top tier stud, he certainly comes across as the type that might favor such a setting outside of porn. The females, bereft of the usual eye contact and other means to establish chemistry, had to carry the action all by themselves as a result, each of them doing a decent job while Charley Chase and Riley Evans stood out for me.
The company website described the title like this: "Belladonna's unique take on porn is cast upon the glory hole niche in this new release. The backdrop is a perfectly disgusting bathroom with rotting tile, a grimy floor, and numerous duct tape-reinforced holes to serve as entry points. The first scene features giggly brunette Charley Chase, who takes the mysterious cock in her mouth and pussy before jerking the cum into a condom and then drinking the evidence. Next up is nubile Ashli Orion, who begins by fucking herself with the short end of a toilet plunger. A dick soon appears to take over the servicing, and she fucks it until it squirts all in her mouth. Tattooed redhead Misty Taylor is next on the scene, and she is understandably grossed out by the filth. She soon relents and has Mark in her mouth before you know it. We find French maid Riley Evans scrubbing the nasty bathroom floor, until she is distracted by the hypnotizing protrusion from the wall. The sucks and fucks her way around the room and takes a big load on her round tits. Sexy Andy San Dimas nearly tears down the building she fucks the glory hole dick so hard - you can feel the world shaking along with her ass!" Here's a very brief look at the cast and action, noting that few condoms were used for those still interested:
Andy San Dimas
Okay, rather than sound repetitive on the scene descriptions and sexual activities, the cast included (in order) Charley Chase, Ashli Orion, Misti Dawn, Riley Evans, and Andy San Dimas; all jumping the bone of Mark Wood. The bathroom in question was dirty, included a toilet and sink, and tiles along the floor and walls. It was purposely made to look as nasty as possible, the setting on the front cover starring Charley Chase giving a head's up for those that care. There were shadows and extreme limits on the camera angles here due to the set itself but the ladies all seemed to make it work fairly well, some admittedly better than others.
Each of the five scenes had a theme to it that drove the action, some care made to insure that the ladies were not looking all glamorized and fresh but more like they were in need of a good, stiff cock to unload on their face, pussy, or asshole. That was the touch that largely made this whole thing work better than most of the wannabe contenders on the market, treating each woman as an individual not only from the point of view of her makeup but how she reacted to the cocks sticking out of holes in the wall. Now there were times when it looked like a second penis was deployed, presumably a dildo being used since they lacked any signs of life and Mark Wood certainly portrayed the creepy meat puppet character better than most in the industry would have.
As far as the sexual activities included here, the majority of them were oral, the blowjob being the most frequent act glory holes are set up for, but the gals managed to actively ride the erections vaginally too, some added kink by way of a toilet plunger used to masturbate with kind of inspired. Otherwise, the penetrative sex was limited to standing doggy where the penetration itself was not that easy to see, the majority of strokable moments coming from the blowjobs thanks to the effort by the gals to throw themselves into their work so wantonly in most cases. I would have preferred to see more variety in the settings as shown by classics such as Jules Jordan's Gloryhole but again, compared to the general level of dedicated titles to this theme (almost exclusively by third tier companies by the way), Bella scored a respectable hit for genre fans, especially those wanting the look of the setting to be as nasty as the gals giving anonymous sexual gratification.
Summary: Belladonna's Hole in the Wall by director Belladonna for Evil Angel was one of those projects most people will either like or hate based on the idea behind it more than the major limitations it presented. I was thankful that Bella gave some bonus footage herself since any of her movies without her in them always strike me as lacking and the BTS material was great for anyone into the cast given the amount of interview footage they engaged in. As far as the movie itself was concerned, a little bit of this fetish goes a very long way for me, my preference for ladies looking their best and able to fully engage in sexual discourse in a variety of positions too much for the often heated scenes to overcome so I rated it as Recommended. In short, Belladonna's Hole in the Wall set out to walk a different path and those jaded by the abundance of copycat gonzo might want to look into this one, the glory hole concept sometimes better in our fantasies than portrayed in porn. Bella relied heavily on her usually edgy look with all the lack of polish shown so frequently in her works, this time making it work to her advantage more than usual.
