Devil’s Den Teaser:Enter the horniest house of horrors ever! Zombies! Werewolves! Psychos! Pop stars! A depraved dungeon full of werewolves, zombies, mutants and hunchbacks converge for creepy copulations and outrageous orgies in this seldom-seen slice of 35mm vintage XXX sex and slime from 1984. Unsuspecting female fans of music megastar 'Mr. J', including adult legend Tajia Rae, are subjected to the sick and sinful advances of horribly hung hunchbacks, sex-starved psychos and the flesh-hungry undead when he leaves the stage from his latest tour and decides to give his groupies the grope of a lifetime! You will not believe the secret sexual weapon that this shape-shifting superstar unleashes to turn his fans’ screams into creams, but it lives up to the title of the film... and did we mention it's a musical?
The Movie: Long before the current Adult movie parody craze came to be, DRILLER: A SEXUAL THRILLER had the movie goers dazed and confused at first and leaving fans of MJ Thriller wondering what brought this on. Porn viewers back then could not understand why it was made into a porno. I’m guess that back those porn watchers weren’t as particular in their taste as they are now. With all the parodies being releases and the better quality of film used its quite different watching something from the 80’s.
Audio/Video:Devil’s Den presents Driller: A Sexual Thriller in a 1:33:1 full frame aspect ratio. This transfer was made from 35mm original film . Colors and black levels looked somewhat decent on my pc , on the tv it was a clearer picture with very little distortion. Detailing looked crisp and the images remains stable throughout. It should be noted that the opening and closing credits do not look as sharp as the rest of the transfer does. The audio portion is clean, clear and balanced presented in Dolby Digital Mono English.
Extras:The extras for Driller include a trailer for the film (31 seconds ), two image galleries, a audio interview with actress Esmeralda (4 minutes 33 seconds) and a interview with producer Timothy Green Beckley aka Mr. Creepo (27 minutes 50 seconds ).The audio interview with Esmeralda, takes a looks back to her scene. While the interview with Timothy Green Beckley focuses on the production aspects of the film , casting, locations, the difficulties that arose between the mainstream and adult performers and the film’s original theatrical release.
Opening Scene: Driller opens up with a theatre full of spectators and fans waiting to watch Mr. J dance. As the audience gets rowdy one of the ladies tears off her top exposing herself to Mr. J. As the other watch the show Louise is in her own world daydreaming about Mr. J. After the show is over the fans express how good the show was and this is where the problems start for Louise and Dan who is her boyfriend who is a major geek to say the least.
Scene 1: Taija Rae & Dick Howard:
Louise and Dan are back at her home in the living room and are trying to be very quiet about things. Dan on the other hand has other plans and is very vocal about what he wants. Louise on the other hand wants nothing to do with him touching her and keeps refusing his advances. Dan doesn’t see her complaints as a turn –off more of a turn on and he takes what he wants. After a few minutes on top he unloads all over her face.

We have Bush.....
Scene 2: Mr. J & Taija Rae:
In dream sequence Louise’s sexual fantasies come to life right before her eyes as her bedroom is invaded by zombies, ghouls and werewolves that break out into the first of many dance skits throughout the movie. The female zombies tear off some of her nighty revealing her breasts then disappear into the mist. Next we see Mr. J on top of her already changed into his wolf form. He then shows off his massive organ that looks like a drill bit and penetrates her. After a few moments and against Louise’s approval he unloads a green slime like substance outside of her.
Scene 3: Esmeralda & Quazi-modo:
In a dark dungeon we find Esmeralda all tied up showing her bare bottoms to the camera. Quazi-modo then breaks out the cat-o-nine tails and proceeds to use it on her ass. After a few long strokes, he unties her and demands her to play with her clit as he stokes his cock( at least that is what the scene makes one to believe). Esmeralda works her clit getting so aroused that she squirts while Quazi-modo end up getting off as well.
This last scene has five different scenes going on at one time. Louise has been kidnapped and brought to the dungeons of Mr. J. As a prisoner Louise is made to watch the sexual perversions that are going on all throughout the dungeon. The ghouls do break into another dance skit before the separate scenes start.
a- Skeleton Bride and Groom- Renee Summers & Rod Retta - Spread out in a double sized coffin you have the ghoulish couple making out and doing some serious heavy petting before the groom goes to get his rocks off on his bride.
Girls In Gold Getting It On...
b- Two unnamed girls whose bodies are painted in gold are first shown playing with the other with light up dildos.Then they are shown again with different toys and their bodies no longer painted in gold and are using the toys on the other making sure that the bring the other to an orgasm.
c- Virgin Sacrifice- Cassandra Leigh & Frank Serrone & George Payne: Laid out on a slab of rock a scantily dressed virgin is being sacrificed to the hooded men ( George & Frank).With monks chanting in the background the young virgin proceed to suck one of the men off while the other is fingering her. She is made to get on all fours and one of the hooded men begins to eat her out while she sucks the others cock. The men switch positions as one does her from behind and the other is in her mouth. A few pumps later both men unload on her.
d-The Orgy-Angelique & Four Unknown men-The men each take turns with her in the missionary position then grab her on all fours as each of the guys took turns banging her from behind while she sucks each guy off. After each of the guys got a piece of the action they all made sure to unload either on her body or on to her face.
Nixon Wannabe Getting His Rocks Off
e- While the other orgy was going on in full swing, there was another group of people going at it but this time the men had Halloween masks on. The one that stood out the most was the guy with the Nixon mask on. He made sure to touch upon the former President’s key phrases(I am not a Crook! etc). Everyone is paired up and or in a small group of their own 3 on 1 until they all get off.
Final Thoughts: Although this was the first attempt back in the 80’s to make a porn parody , in my opinion you have to watch it without the pre ordained conception of how much porn has evolved since then. The campy plot and multiple dance scenes isn’t for those that watch porn to get off on. As one of my colleagues ask me “is it stroke worthy or in my case rub worthy and I had to be very honest with him that it wasn’t.
Gropped By Ghouls
If you are into porn with music then yes this is something that one would enjoy. As for the transfer from 35mm film to DVD , I was also disappointed with it, viewing it on my computer doesn’t do it justice it was too dark . When I watched it on the Sony tv, you were able to see it much clearer and notice the huge difference from pc to tv.
25 years ago, who would think that Michael Jackson’s Thriller would eventually go on to cater to a different kind of audience. Driller came to life from the very warped mind of Timothy Green Beckley (Dr. Creepo) who saw it as his claim to fame and had hoped to even get some kind of feedback from Michael Jackson people, be it positive or negative.
Today’s porn the men and women have hardly any hair on their bodies and in Driller there is a lot of hair everywhere! There was no such thing as breast enhancement, everything was all nature. The women did have meat on their bodies unlike today where the women are very petite and well groomed( ie hair, nails, toned bodies) and the same goes for the men except they are well built with a six pack abs and tanned bodies and well endowed.
Driller: A Sexual Thriller has the capability to get you aroused once you get over the fact that it was made back in the 80’s. My one favorite scene, the orgy is at the end. I guess they decide to keep the best for last. As for giving it a rating Driller.. for those that are collectors of 80’s porn then I would suggest to add it to your collection, other than that I would have to say “Rent It” for now and make your own decision from there.
