Cast: Katie Jordin, Dane Cross, Eric Masterson, Sara Sloane/Sarah Vandella, Ryan McLane, Kagney Linn Karter, Lee Stone, Francesca Le, Mark Wood, Breanne Benson, Michael Vegas Non-sex role: Tabitha Stevens
Length: 124:57 minutes
Katie Jordin with Eric
Date of Production: 2010
Extras: The only substantive extra on the first disc was the 22:45 minute Behind the Scenes feature, much of it devoted to additional sexual exploits. There was also a set of trailers, a photogallery, and a compilation of popshots from the movie. The second disc was merely a black and white version of the same movie, some of the dialogue portions taking on new life in an atmospheric manner conducive to the original Hitchcock flick from decades ago.

Audio/Video Quality: Official Psycho Parody was presented in a visually appealing anamorphic widescreen color using an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 as shot by director Gary Orona for Zero Tolerance using the MPEG-2 codec employed by standard definition releases with a 480 resolution. The lighting was strong, eliminating the shadows and grain I dislike so much, the overall look of the show was surprisingly strong for a director with limited titles under his belt. The bitrate tended to hover around the mid 6.1 Mbps area most of the time I paid any attention to it, the composition of the camera angles typically optimal for the ladies but always managing to keep the feature aspects in mind. The composition of the scenes enhanced the look of the ladies, this particular cast able to handle the solid lighting quite well. The second disc provided a B&W version of the movie, keeping all the smut and dialogue intact but managing to offer a slightly different experience at times due to the moods invoked. The sole audio track was presented in 1.0 Dolby Digital English using the standard 192 Kbps rate using a 48 kHz sampling rate most titles are mastered with, the aural experience fairly limited but much like the gonzo titles the company is known for, just upgraded with ambient noises to flesh out the aural experience. There was also no separation between the channels but the dynamic range was a lot better than usual. The voices could be clearly heard with the balance between those and the music nicely handled, the ambient effects also mixed in properly.

Body of Review: Gary Orona is a relative newcomer to directing porn but he has made quite a splash with his best efforts released by Zero Tolerance this past year. Gary’s focus has been to take popular horror/thriller movies and “re-envision” them rather than spoof them, paying homage to the originals more than just pornify them with added sex scenes. For the most part, these efforts have reaped numerous accolades and I expect the Official Psycho Parody to continue this trend, the Hitchcock classis that introduced the archetype character of Norman Bates into pop culture the perfect target for Gary’s brand of work. Starring such babes as Courtney Cummz, Kagney Linn Karter, and Francesca Le, the sexual aspects of the movie were most strokable and offered substantial replay value, my biggest complaint being the editing of the infamous shower scene in drastic need of polishing up and reworking (no blood until several obvious strikes with the blade greatly weakened it for me).

The back cover described the movie like this: “This twisted interpretation of Hitchcock’s classic features a sexually explosive performance by Sara Sloane as Marion Crane, the temptress who steals a wad of cash to be with her hot lover, Sam. At the infamous Bates Motel, Marion meets her kinky match in Norman, the cross-dressing taxidermist who spies on Marion through a peephole in her hotel room and becomes obsessed. He invites her to dinner where her sick psycho-sexual fetish is not the only thing that gets exposed, then later he takes her life in the faithfully recreated shower scene with one departure – it’s fully nude! It’s too late for Marion by the time the horny gumshoe detective comes to investigate, and when he blows town with a local hooker who blows him, Sam and Marion’s sister Lila are the only ones left to lay bare the truth, and each other.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: Katie Jordin, a fetching little lady with a very lean figure, was up first as Dane Cross and Eric Masterson explored her assets, helping her remove her period clothing for greater oral access to her private parts. Eric was the sexual aggressor here, getting Katie undressed and reclined on an office desk while Dane impotently protested. Eric snacked on her crack at length while Dane joined it to play with her itty bitty titties, Katie soon flipping over to slob the mope knob in front of her. It was an energetic blowjob and Eric rimmed her before poking her pretty pussy, the oral and vaginal positions varying until she knelt before them to receive their beaten off loads of genetic juice on her pretty face.
Scene Two: Sara Sloane/Sarah Vandella, the cutie on the front cover’s right hand side, was up next in a role that company comic Mike Quasar suggested was perfectly suited for her (his compliments regarding her performance made quite public on twitter). She looked great in the role despite the period attire, her curvy figure looking quite hot in the lingerie of the times. She was joined by Ryan “Norman” McLane, his own acting prowess working with hers to make it a fairly strong addition to Orona’s porn resume, the creepier aspects leading to Sara stripping as a means of seducing him. He rushed into going down on her as she reclined on a chair, his fingers stretching her pussy out as she moaned loudly. That led to some modestly active vaginal penetration positions, Sara taking charge as she milked him dry all over her lower torso (he rubbed a large load of population pudding out). The shower scene concluded their tryst.
Scene Three: Kagney Linn Karter, a sexy blond bombshell contract gal, was up next in lingerie as she encouraged muscular Lee Stone to go down on her. He gobbled her goodies and she appeared to appreciate his efforts, trading places to slob his knob as aggressively as either of the previous ladies had attempted to do by this point in the movie. While she only concentrated on the head of his cock, it had the desired effect of getting him ready to bone her like he owned her, hammering away at her pussy for all he was worth. Kagney was a strong rider this time, her usual style of passively allowing a man to tap her replaced by her bouncing on the pecker soundly. He then ordered her on her knees and jerked off a wad of spunk to her face, Kagney licking him as he filled her mouth with his manly essence.
Scene Four: Francesca Le, a popular MILF with a great set of moves, was up next with her real life husband Mark Wood. After they engaged in some limited (but funny) dialogue that included Mark wearing high heels, Francesca disrobed to reveal her sexy lingerie clad form, causing Mark to sport some wood. She continued to tease him and rubbed herself on his body, some titty play leading to her giving him a fine blowjob full of passion and chemistry. Mark reciprocated in a tamer manner but Francesca seemed ready to go over the top in moaning, leading to some very active vaginal riding by the lady. She impaled herself on his cock, yelling out for him to give it to her as sweat dripped down her body. A few more positions left him beating off on one of the shoes he wore, Francesca licking it clean in a submissive manner.
Scene Five: Breanne Benson, a curvy blond with a nice rack and even nicer looking ass, was up last with Michael Vegas, the man stripping off her clothing as he slowly kissed all over her body. He went down on her and she returned the favor, his package eventually becoming hard though it took some considerable effort on her part. Breanne looked up at him from time to time to enhance their connection to one another, bending her over the dresser to start the vaginal sex and the gal sitting on top of him when they reverted to doing it on the bed. This continued until he tossed off a wad of semen to her face, the story ending with some creepy footage by Tabitha Stevens as Norman’s mother.
Summary: Official Psycho Parody by director Gary Orona for Zero Tolerance might have needed additional polishing up but as far as porn tributes are concerned, it was one of the best I’ve seen in 2011; the relative lack of parody aspects trumped by the engaging sexual trysts of the cast. The stroke value and replayability were enough to merit a rating of Recommended or better though, fans of the original movie perhaps seeing more layered depth in repeated viewings than I did watching it a couple of times (once in color, once in B&W). In short, this Official Psycho Parody took the movie in a decidedly different direction than I anticipated, fans of Gary Orona’s thriller remakes almost certain to be satisfied with what he did and how he did it so give it a look and enjoy yourself as you see fit.
