Extras: The first disc included a cast list and websites, mentioning what was on the second and third discs as well. The second disc also had a cast list but included some filmographies, trailers and websites. The third disc was exclusively a 165:43 minute long Behind the Scenes feature with a lot more interview material, Bella and Aiden interacting with the cast, and more insight into the movie being made. There was some urinating, interviews, additional sexual material, and even a few thoughts from the director/her mate to think about.

Audio/Video Quality: Belladonna: Fetish Fanatic 9 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 4.4 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 an edgy movie called Belladonna: Fetish Fanatic 9, the big addition here being the introduction of severe breath play (using choking, bags over heads, etc.) in a manner that will not suit the more squeamish types out there. As noted in her previous fuck flicks of late, the director did not partake in the action on camera, leaving that to women like Ashli Orion, Ann Marie Rios, Andy San Dimas, Kristina Rose, Francesca Le, and a variety of others as listed in this review. Fans of hardcore lesbian antics of the like we rarely see these days due to changing social mores will be happy to note that this was not the same lipstick lesbian-lite action found at companies known for contract performers. With three discs full of lengthy extras and heated scenes, fans will certainly appreciate this one a whole lot, the first two discs offering up four and half hours of movie while the third provided almost three hours of BTS footage..
Ashli Orion and Francesca Le
The company website described the title like this: “The ultimate all-girl kink series just added another trophy to director Belladonna's mantle, this time for Fetish Fanatic - Chapter 8, winner of the "Most Outrageous Sex Scene" category at the 2011 Adult Video News Awards. Belladonna is not a girl known for resting on her depravity-gilded laurels, so Fetish Fanatic - Chapter 9 continues the exploration of all-girl sexual deviations including spitting, gapping asses, feet tickling, lipstick lesbians (with a flair for body art) and the most breathtaking fetish of all -- sexual suffocation, performed by Francesca Le, herself no stranger to the outer limits of fetish play. In fact, four of the ten lovelies in Chapter 9 are graduates of Chapter 8, no doubt intended to capture lightning in a bottle twice in a row. Belladonna regulars Bobbi Starr and Kristina Rose remind us that pretty girls can be pretty crazy as evidenced by their passion for perversion, anal insertion and aggressive sex. Determined to leave no hole unplugged, no mouth empty and no pussy unsatisfied, Belladonna's newest installment clocks in at over 7 hours of original footage, including a movie almost five hours long. Amazingly there's not a minute wasted, especially for the real fans... the Fetish Fanatics.” Here’s a very brief look at the cast and action, noting that few condoms were used for those still interested:
Sammie Rhodes and Andy San Dimas
Scene One: Bobbi Starr, a long time gonzo extreme queen and hotty to boot, was up first with attractive blond Ashley Fires, their skimpy bikinis offering limited resistance to the oral play they started off with. This soon became a lesbian hardcore scene with lots of fingers and toys used to penetrate pussy and ass alike; the emphasis on anal worship obvious in no time. Bobbi sported a thick mat of pubic hair and diddled herself as she shoved a toy in Ashley’s ass, the gal reciprocating with a chrome looking toy soon after. This was an attempt to establish a baseline of what to expect, their chemistry better than most scenes focusing on spilling genetic juice (or population pudding) but their enthusiasm, chemistry, and all around playfulness making it a fine opening scene.
Scene Two: Sinn Sage and Tori Lux, both dark haired gals with lean bodies, were up next on a purple couch as they made out while wearing Goth type attire. The clothing came off as they kissed and otherwise orally satisfied one another, some foot fetish material included for those into it. They then started going down on each other at length, deploying toys in pussy and ass before rubbing crotches together and continuing the process. What made this one hot to watch was more about the connection the ladies appeared to have for each other, their desire to explore freely without a lot of imposed limits weighing them down. As with the other scenes, make sure to watch the third disc (the lengthy BTS) to see more about what they thought of it all, the end result (pun intended) being that it was a very strokable scene with lots of replay value.
Scene Three: Kristina Rose, one of the reigning hotties of booty porn, and lovely brunette Ann Marie Rios, were up next as the final scene on the first disc. They wore skirts and creative accessories for the whole scene but their oral talents were used extensively as they engaged in various forms of foot fetish action. That I could see goose bumps on Anne’s arm at times spoke volumes to me in regards to how much she was getting off, the look on both of their faces also cluing me into the idea that this was a change of pace my pecker could live with. I’m not into foot worship scenes in the slightest but I am into hot women having a great time, only some grainy camerawork at the end weakening it (near the portion where Kristina is choking Anne). Still, the pussy play, kissing, and various forms of other caressing were a delight to appreciate.
Scene Four: Ashli Orion and Francesca Le were up next as seen on the front cover (Fran in red with a bag on her head while Ashli was behind her in clear wrap). The main theme of this scene was using plastic wrap on each other and engaging in some breath play, the ladies savoring the experience as cougar met kitten in a very playful manner. The extensive oral and fingering was weird but in a good way; the wrap as a dental dam definitely a creative touch that invokes memories of my own past. To sum it up, the two were into each other and using a lot of enthusiasm as they went wild with plastic wrap for the better part of an hour. This scene alone had more kink related to the topic than any other such fetish flick I have seen in memory but again, it was their chemistry together that made it such a fine bit of fooling around. There are some out there that would automatically dismiss such a scene due to the breath control aspects alone but as usual, they would be focusing on the individual trees instead of the entire forest since the ladies never went outside of their specified limits of safe conduct.
Scene Five: Sammie Rhodes, a lean blond with a lot of lesbian appeal, and brunette award winner Andy San Dimas, were up last in a scene devoted to lipstick fetish. They continually and repeatedly applied a bunch of lipstick only to allow it to smear and run while going down on each other and kissing a lot. Imagine the sloppy manner in which a heated tryst in the backseat of a car (this took place in a small room with a mattress in it but the idea was the same) leaves a gal looking unpolished because she doesn’t care what she looks like when turned on. That was the dynamic here and while the connection between them (sometimes referred to as chemistry) might not have been as strong or obvious as the other scenes, the love of lipstick was clearly dominant here. The ladies were fit and wearing classic lingerie (bra, panties, stripper shoes, fishnets on one, and garters), showing a love of rimming and other oral tricks with just a hint of roughness towards one another to spice things up. There was then a lengthy portion of foot fetish worship along with choking and fisting (leaving one finger out as far as I could see) before it ended with the only spunk unleashed being that of the home viewer.
Summary: Belladonna: Fetish Fanatic 9 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. The BTS material was great for anyone into the cast given the amount of interview footage they engaged in, placing it on a third disc a great idea to keep the rest of the lengthy movie looking as good as possible. 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 but I can’t dismiss the fact that as a specialty product, the movie truly stands out in terms of nastiness and fetish so I split the difference and rated it as Highly Recommended. In short, Belladonna: Fetish Fanatic 9 was nothing like most lesbian flicks, the smutty hardcore sensibilities such that it will definitely cater to a particular crowd that gets into women having a great time abolishing stereotypes that they are not able to appreciate nasty sex. The breath control aspects of this one might also be too much for a handful of zealots (you know who you are!) but if you want the opinions of the actual performers, set aside plenty of time to watch the BTS on the third disc so you can rest easy that they were fine with all that was asked of them.
