Extras: The best extra was the inclusion of the high definition Blu-ray disc for the movie, those of us equipped to watch such versions finding them superior in just about every way. There was then a 10:48 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, the gals interviewed with some clip montages included to showcase their assets, particularly during the photoshoots. For the record, this was not one of the fun filled BTS’ like DP is known for so much as a straightforward BTS like you find everywhere else. There was also a photogallery and some trailers.

Condoms: None

Audio/Video Quality: Desert Heat was presented in a clear anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Francois Clousot for Digital Playground. The entire movie had a low budget horror look to it, the resolution reduced so it didn’t look like it was shot on video, the lighting varied depending on the feature elements rather than provide porn’s common warehouse lighting, and a host of other minor touches catering to the feature aspects of the show. The capable editing by Kurt Tortcher and multitude of cameras wielded by Billy Da Kid, Sir Richard Manwin III, Alex Tea, and Tommy Banana (you’d know them by their more common names), allowing various shots to make this look more like a direct to cable horror flick with sex thrown in if a less explicit cut is made. Kirsten Price played a small role in front of the camera though she was credited primarily as the stylist and others contributing to the production made it seem like the company has finally assembled a “B” team to compete with Robby’s bunch, so much riding on the main director over the years that I’m surprised it didn’t happen sooner. The aural components were capably handled as well, Seth Cardigan and Bud Greene in charge of audio, Ric Rodney on grips, with Sly as Gaffer. The surround sound appeared to be all done in post production as usual but some separation between the tracks seemed present, the visuals on the high definition version not as upgraded as usual but more so than the audio this time.

Body of Review: Francois Clousot is often considered one of the most technically skilled of modern day porn directors, his ability to capture both heated sexual trysts and feature elements well noted over the years. While best known for his extensive body of work at Wicked Pictures (both as lead director as well as director of photography) he has also worked jobs for a number of other companies such as Digital Playground. His latest feature is called Desert Heat, a story about a killer preying on a group of college students, the sexual elements focused on though Francois’s unique touches added in to liven up the story too. With a cast of cuties including Riley Reid, Rikki Six, Courtney Taylor and others, I thought this sounded more than a little interesting going into it, wondering if the director might be trying to set himself up for the late night cable crowd if the industry keeps spiraling downward due to piracy.


The back cover described the movie like this: “Every year, college students head to a deserted motel, for a week of partying and shameless hookups as a break from finals. Stevie Shae plans to do the same, with her boyfriend and 3 other couples. Desert Heat is a sexy and enthralling look into these couples’ week long tradition of much needed release and hardcore sex. Little do they know, killer Tommy Gunn is on the hunt and the couples face fear as they’ve never known it. Death lingers upon them while the crazy killer murders one person at a time. The full cast includes Courtney Taylor, Kendall Karson, Riley Reid, Rikki Six, Leya Falcon, Tommy Gunn, Chad White, Keni Styles, Michael Vegas, and Seth Gamble.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:


Scene One: Rikki Six, the featured blond bombshell on the center of the front cover, was up first as she engaged in sexual discourse with Keni Styles in and around a pickup truck. They were making out in the cab of the truck on the cold day when they got the silly idea they needed more room (courtesy of the director, I’m sure), moving to the bed in the open where her tight cut off shorts barely hid her bald beaver never mind her perky ass. Keni boned her and went down on her, his blowjob already secured, and she actively rode his pecker until he busted on her ass, some post coital head provided him before they scrambled back into the truck for warmth.


Scene Two: Stevie Shae, another attractive bleach blond, was up next in bed with Michael Vegas, the two engaging in verbal banter before a kiss led to something more. Her top flew off and he savored her perky little boobs, moving southward to orally pleasure her before she reciprocated in a playful manner. I liked her energy and enthusiasm, his hand diddling her shaven snatch before they vaginally fucked in a few positions, her tits shaking back and forth nicely. Her eye contact was good and both provided additional oral, their fucking leading to him launching his load on her upper torso, primarily around her tits for her to taste it.


Scene Three: Kendall Karson, a brunette with pale skin and pretty eyes, was up next as she made out with Seth Gamble on the old bed. Her top was off quickly so her yummy ass was in the air in shorts before he peeled them off of her along with her skimpy panties, the gal spreading her legs wide to grant him access to go down on her completely shaven crotch. Kendall appreciated his efforts and moaned appropriately, her elevated respiration rate showing she was having some fun. She then dropped down to blow him with her hand on the shaft and mouth focusing on his head, the brief blowjob leading to some moderately active vaginal penetration positions. They fucked until he lost it on her stomach, the gal tasting the semen as the scene cut away.


Scene Four: Leya Falcon, the increasingly thick blond bombshell that was once an acclaimed XCritic blogger, was up next with scruffy Tommy Gunn, the gal wanting to show him some hospitality by entering his room and crawling between his legs to blow him. Leya easily throated him as her hand worked his shaft, the sloppy hummer leading her to lower her top and then bend over to present herself in doggy for him to pork. She looked great with her ass in the air and her head down, the curvy gal looking more like a MILF every time I see her (in a good way mind you). Her juicy ass shook nicely as he drove it into her and she sucked him clean between positions, the missionary and cowgirl positions finishing him off to give the dirty talking slut her facial finish as desired.


Scene Five: Riley Reid and Stevie Shae, both seen on the lower right hand corner of the cover, were up next in a lesbian tryst where the horny duo caressed and kissed each other in their cover lingerie in bed. Riley was the dominant one who spent a lot of time rimming Stevie, the lithe young lady appreciating the larger boobs and curves in general of her peer. I liked how they left their lingerie on for an extended time as they went at it, the lesbian actions pretty basic but driven by their mutual chemistry. They managed to grind their pussies together when still in panties and act like they wanted to fuck, the ending truncated without any obvious ending as the scene cut away while they were still having fun.


Scene Six: Courtney Taylor, a tall blond with awesome curves, was up next in a tight blue top and skimpy shorts, her tits and fine ass standing out as reasons to stick around if you’ve made it this far in the flick. Her partner was Chad White, his role as a horny cop contrasting nicely with her hooker portrayal, the gal liking him to get rough by spanking her though she stuffed his cock in her mouth quite readily too. Courtney gave solid eye contact and provided more passion to prove she earned her role as his “favorite girl”, her tight body exciting him as she inhaled his prick. He then dove into her pussy and ass as she bent over against a wooden structure (no pun intended), her bald beaver actively impaling itself on his rod as the long legged gal milked him dry in cowgirl variations and a finishing doggy, her boobs taking the ejaculate before the feature elements took over.

Summary: Desert Heat by director Francois Clousot for Digital Playground was a pretty basic teen horror flick with all the usual amounts of naked flesh thrown in for good measure, admittedly more explicit than most late night cable movies but only if a second “Skinamax” cut is not made for general viewing. The sex scenes with ladies such as Riley Reid, Kendall Karson, Stevie Shae, and others were short but sweet, all of the gals fuckable and possessing enough energy to add some replay value so I rated this one as Recommended. In short, if you enjoy teen slasher flicks with lots of sexy young ladies present, you’ll probably find Desert Heat even more to your liking than I did so adjust the rating accordingly, the elements kind of basic all around but covering the bases for a low budget fuck flick pretty well just the same so check it out.
