Cast: Penny Pax, Preston Parker, Adriana Chechik, Mr. Pete, Phoenix Marie, Chris Strokes, Bailey Blue, Manuel Ferrara; Nikita Bellucci & Mick Blue (in bonus scene only)
Length: 145:29 minutes
Date of Production: 12/14/2013
Extras: For many, the best extra will be the completely unrelated bonus scene from Anal Students 2 described below between Nikita Bellucci and Mick Blue that lasted 38:40 minutes. Others may appreciate the 3:31 minute long Behind the Scenes feature even if it was too short (covering only half the cast too), the trailers, the photogallery, the pop shot recap, or web information.
Audio/Video Quality: Anal Freaks was presented in anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Mimefreak for Elegant Angel. This being the first of the director’s titles for the company provided me for review, I had to consciously remember that he is part of the rebranded company, not the beloved old school EA that I grew to appreciate over so many years. Thankfully, the scenes were shot in similar manner with a lot of lighting, limited camera work, modest edits, and a devotion to detail, my biggest fuss being the transition to providing just four scenes rather than the previous standard of five. There were some minor rough spots in need of polishing up so few conscious viewers would mistake this for anything shot by Nutsack or Mason but it grew on me, the director providing a look reminiscent of LT Turner’s works for the company, well within the guidelines of acceptability and better than what I see from the established second and third tier companies (translation: Elegant is back!). The color tones were accurate in most cases (way too saturated in Phoenix’s scene though) and camera movement not invasive, the company watermark not present here. The aural components were similar too, the limited musical portions during opening and tease montages replaced by the usual grunts and groans of the sexual trysts once the action began.
Body of Review: Mimefreak is the latest “new” director at Elegant Angel, the company undergoing massive changes last year when it swapped hands and most of the staff bailed for greener pastures. (For more on Mimefreak, listen to his podcast). The first release I’ve seen helmed by the man is called Anal Freaks, his technical acumen akin to the well lit titles shot by LT Turner in days of old at the company, of particular interest for me because of the lead starlet, Phoenix Marie. The curvy babe was featured on the front cover and looked great as ever, the delicious anal queen garnering a scene alongside notables such as Penny Pax, Bailey Blue, and Adriana Chechik; each of them suitable for a high end all sex release such as this. Other than the four hotties doing anal, I really had few expectations for the movie since it is the first of the “New” Elegant Angel works to come in for review, my curiosity to see how they’ve held up amid reports of both mediocrity and/or glowing fanboy praise from unreliable sources. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Penny Pax, an award winning redhead wearing glasses, was up first giving a brief interview in her black and white dress. This led to her in sheer black bikini undies outside for a tease montage, a slower pace than what I’m used to from the company but a decent showcase of her looks and body parts nonetheless. It was far too short and led to her bantering with the director as she stretched her perfect pucker using an all too large glass dildo, Preston Parker soon coming to assist her by rimming her and gobbling her gash which led to her slobbing his knob. Penny was an accomplished oralist and provided a devoted hummer, some hand to gland friction enhancing the oral as she gave wonderful eye contact. They went straight to anal from there, Penny really passive at taking the turgid rod up her ass until she warmed up. There was some taste testing but not as much as usual, Penny kneeling down to clean his cock orally leading to one more position before the blast of genetic juice hit her face.
Scene Two: Adriana Chechik, a fetching brunette with a curvy body, was up next following the formulaic interview, montage, anal solo and then engaging Mr. Pete sexually. She wore a purple and white bikini outfit that covered up a lot more than usual but the brevity of the montage disappointed. Adriana was on a white couch when Pete entered with a black anal plug to work into her sweet ass, the gal helping him and tasting it before she blew him with a degree of precision. The sloppy hummer left streamers of drool all over her, Pete pushing her limits a bit before tapping her bald beaver and perky ass. She was too passive much of the time but came around in the cowgirl variations, the gal kneeling to take his population pudding all over her face as she looked up to him.
Scene Three: Phoenix Marie, the sexual dynamo featured on the front cover was up next in her red mesh and black panties, the anal queen long appreciated by this reviewer. She gave the interview and teased in the modest house, stretching her juicy ass with an anal plug as part of the montage before ending up on a bed where she fingered her yummy ass until Chris Strokes walked over with an erection. Phoenix showed why she is such a superior performer here, both aggressively sucking him off and serving as a cock socket for him to throat though he was rimming her and fingering her very shortly afterwards. He banged her rounded rump and pussy like he owned it, Phoenix enjoying the heat of the moment in a multitude of positions before actively pushing back to meet his thrusts. While not best for the camera, she seemed to enjoy the position where she was on her stomach the most, arching back to kiss Chris before some more traditional doggy took over. There was a lot of vaginal here and he ended it by nutting his spunk all over her ass, Phoenix cleaning his spew off his pecker with her mouth.
Scene Four: Bailey Blue, a tattooed cutie with a lean body, was up next to follow the formula, babe changing into a black one piece lingerie get up to do the tease and scene. The shorter tease led to her handling a large glass anal plug, licking it and sucking it before inserting it into her ass. It took some work to get it into her so Manuel Ferrara came in early to work her ass orally and with his fingers to make things easier, stuffing his face between her ass cheeks to pleasure her before kissing her mouth and pawing her on a black couch. He gobbled her gash and it was cute to compare her light mound of pubic hair to his unshaven bearded look, his finger in her ass as she rubbed one out looking like she climaxed. She then blew him energetically, some hand use included but also serving as a cock socket before some enthusiastic anal penetration positions occurred. He spanked her fleshy ass cheek and kissed her some more too, her cowgirl positions being the most active to leading to draining his dragon of splooge, the ball batter tasted before the credits rolled.
Bonus Scene: Anal Students 2: Nikita Bellucci, a cute young lady with colored hair and a curvy but lean figure, was up next as she teased in red lingerie. I liked how her panties rode up her ass crack and the sultry look she provided the camera, Mick Blue being the lucky one to get a piece of ass from her this time. After she stripped and masturbated, she posed for him on the white couch, Mick making her speak in French as she continued the interview. It was amusing that said interview was shot between her legs but she was very open (no pun intended) as she showed him her goodies, her meaty labia and fingering her precious little pucker. Her solo act included using a green glass dildo to stretch out with, Mick replacing the toy with his own rod as he slowly pounded her, Nikita pushing her limits to take even a small portion of his cock since it was so thick. As time wore on, she eased onto it increasingly fast though, her neatly trimmed patch of pubic hair seemingly out of place given how clean she looked otherwise. The largely passive riding led to her throating him though, sucking his nuts and stroking his dick as she played him so well with her solid eye contact. The scene continued until he beat off a round of baby batter to her open mouth, Nikita licking him clean as she looked up at him from the kneeling position. The company website described the scene like this: “Nikita Bellucci is a brunette with a look that will stun you. Tight ass, nice tits, toned from head to toe, and bold enough to wear red and black for this 38 minute hardcore scene. If that sounds too good to stand, you'd better sit, then... because it only gets better. Kick back and get ready to cum, as this brunette nympho prepares to have her sweet ass drilled by a stiff cock!”
Summary: Anal Freaks by director Mimefreak for Elegant Angel was not one of the company’s flagship titles so while the inclusion of a mere four scenes initially struck me as “going cheap” as others have done, I cannot stress enough that the casting was well in line with previous years. Phoenix Marie looked great, easily earning her cover spot though Bailey Blue, Adriana Chechik, and Xcritic’s award winning Penny Pax all looked and performed just fine. I rated the single disc release as a solid Recommended as all the scenes were not as top notch as could be but this was a very good start for the company in my opinion, further observations on a couple other releases forthcoming. In short, Anal Freaks was a good title for ass aficionados to appreciate from Elegant, the enthusiasm of the ladies helping elevate their profiles even further up the porn pantheon as the company makes a proverbial comeback. If I get a chance to see previous releases from the company since last summer, I’ll have more to compare with but they seem to be doing fine as they try to catch up to the established leaders in gonzo porn, JJV and Evil.
