Extras: The first disc included the movie and some trailers. The second disc began with a 32:47 minute long non-sex version of the show, a whopping 12:05 minutes of Behind the Scenes footage (interviews), a 50:42 minute set of auditions where potential cast members read lines (making me appreciate those who made the cut), a 25:07 minute non-sex version of the movie, a photogallery, some trailers, and a company promotional reel. There were then three unrelated bonus scenes from previous endeavors including Craving 2, The Perfect Partner, and Stimulant, two detailed below. While it would have been great to have director cuts of the sex scenes from this movie, longer BTS footage, and things of that nature, this was a pretty decent package of extras overall.

Condoms: Yes

Audio/Video Quality: Sleeping Beauty XXX was shot in anamorphic widescreen by director Axel Braun for Wicked Pictures, his new distributor. This is the second in the new “Wicked Fairy Tales” line, using director of photography Eli Cross (videography handled by Axel, Mac Swell, and Jake Jacobs), costume designer Aja De Coudreaux, and Axel’s wife joining him and Claudia Ross as editors to make the show look its best given the porn sized budget. The visual elements looked dark here, befitting the subject matter in most cases, but the energy of the scenes came through in each scene, some compression artifacts observed but the special effects by Level 5 Post were cool enough. The aural components by Seth Cardigan were similarly handled, blending the crisp vocals with the appealing music and occasional ambient sound to give it added depth. The surround sound appeared to be added in post production rather than captured during production that way but it did not weaken the overall end product, the sonic aspects combining with the visual to help tell the story.

 

Body of Review: Axel Braun is a director riding the wave of his often popular parodies now working with Wicked Pictures, his distribution and directing deal allowing him to helm such big budget releases as the newly released, double disc Sleeping Beauty XXX: An Axel Braun Parody. Unlike the recent re-envisioning by Disney called “Maleficent” that I really did not like at all, Axel takes a darker angle of pornifying the story, again taking the less traveled route of applying a different sort of look at the principles than simply adding sex. Starring Stormy Daniels and Anikka Albright, I thought the show had a lot of potential going into it, the almost obligatory darker ending making me smile far more than the mainstream version did. Now maybe Axel will take it one step further and have a “battle of the bitches” in an original based on both recent flicks, something like “Maleficent vs. Sleeping Beauty” to take advantage of his revisions, now THAT could be epic!

The back cover described the movie like this: “Following the critical and commercial success of "Snow White XXX: An Axel Braun Parody", Wicked Pictures proudly presents another classic fairy tale re-imagined by the legendary director. Featuring rising starlet Anikka Albrite as the doomed princess, and superstar Stormy Daniels in a powerhouse performance as Maleficent, "Sleeping Beauty XXX: An Axel Braun Parody" is a dark, sensual and enticing feature with all the amazing costumes, production values and hot sex that Braun's fans have come to expect from him.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that condoms were used for those still interested:

 

 

Scene One: Riley Steele, Claire Robbins, and Casey Calvert, were up first as the three fairies who blessed the newborn, Jay Crew portraying the king who oversaw the event. In this case, that meant they all triple teamed him orally, each taking turns slobbing his knob and nuzzling his nuts after some minimal kissing. I know that many feel a blowjob is half a scene at best but the glimpses of nudity and the devoted manner in which all three ladies gave him head added to the fun, my biggest surprise being that Riley was relegated to such a minor role given her position as Axel’s sole contract starlet. Still, there was some hand to gland friction and while I would personally have rather had Stormy’s more aggressive oral method applied, Jay’s turgid rod plastering all three as they knelt before him to receive their reward, the gals cum swapping the semen in heated fashion.

 

Scene Two: Shayla LaVeaux, a long time popular lady in porn, was up next outside with Mick Blue, the cougar all over the guy after hearing his devotion. He sucked her tits and kissed her hard, Shayla kneeling down to inhale his cock like she was releasing all sorts of built up energy. She gave solid eye contact and used her hands to augment her mouth’s skillful manner, Mick soon bending her over to pound her in a standing doggy with a modestly noticeable condom. Given the intensity of his thrusting, the plastic sheath was not as obvious here and her neatly trimmed slit glistened with juices as they bumped uglies, several more active vaginal positions leading to him dousing her crotch with sperm as Anikka got an eyeful from the distance.

 

Scene Three: Anikka Albrite, the fetching young blond bombshell featured on the front cover, was up next with Stormy Daniels, the seasoned MILF hooking up with her desirable charge in a sensual lesbian tryst. The setting was on the dark side in terms of seeing everything as clearly as possible but Stormy’s curvy body looked good under the existing conditions, Anikka greedily sucking her erect nipples and keeping eye contact as the costumed contract starlet positioned the much younger babe with her ass ripe for the plucking. Stormy knelt down behind her and licked her thumb before rubbing it gingerly along Anikka’s crack, the gal’s precious pucker looking as sweet as ever as Stormy rimmed her and gobbled some gash. This led to Anikka reciprocating when Stormy laid down and spread her legs to reveal a neatly trimmed snatch, Anikka fingering the handsome woman before moving from sucking pussy to rimming ass. Stormy then took more time to eat at the Y herself, some kissing returning them to the feature elements of the show.

 

Scene Four: Stormy Daniels, still decked out in her robe and horns, then confronted prince Michael Vegas to make a deal, the magic binding them to their course of action for the rest of the show. She thrust her ample bosoms in his face and he sucked them while diddling her cookie, Stormy kneeling down to inhale his rod in a manner to which her fans have always found quite heated. While her eye contact may not have been as good as the others, she seemed devoted to his pecker, sucking him most of the way to the base and varying her method to include using no hands as well as her double hand corkscrew before jumping on his protected pecker. Stormy was an active rider too, the cougar engaging him in some cowgirl variations, doggy, and missionary until he bust a nut of spew on her face and boobs, the deal struck so she left him in his dungeon cell.

 

Scene Five: Anikka Albright, wearing her cover outfit as she lay sleeping on the bed in the castle, awoke to the kiss of now freed Michael Vegas, the gal pulling him closely as she made it clear that she did not want to wait for a formal ceremony to go at it. They slowly removed some of her attire to reveal her yummy tits, her perfect pussy perhaps the pinkest and freshest of the cast as he massaged her to a juicy state. Michael fingered her and gave her some head, Anikka aggressively reciprocating with a saliva drenched hummer before she impaled herself vaginally on his cock. Her splendid ass stood out in magnificent view as she rode the guy, the downside to the much more plentiful lighting being how easy it was to see his protection. Regardless, they fucked and sucked in a multitude of positions before the heated tryst ended when he pulled off the rubber to launch his seed all over her crotch, the expected twists and turns of the plotted elements concluding the story soon after.

Bonus Scene: Craving 2: Jessica Drake and Xander Corvus: It’s story time, as the lovely Jessica will be our story teller for the day. We are going to get some naughtier versions of some of the stories we grew up on. And we start off with Jessica, as the young lady who was thought to be able to spin straw into gold. What is she going to do? So with a little help from Rumpelstiltskin, played by Xander. He is willing to help her, if she helps him, and all that he wants is a simple kiss. And so the story continues, but the next night he returns, but he wants a little something more this time, a simple BJ will do this time. The princess falls to her knees and rubs and stokes his cock through his pants, and then slides them down and is amazed at the sight, and slowly kisses and licks his cock. As she continues, he reaches down and reaches for her tits. He cums and then leaves and returns once again the next night, and this time he wants to spend one night of fucking him. After some thought, she agrees. He lifts her up and goes for those boobs that he just got a little taste of the night before. And then heads south to taste her pussy, as he licks with his tongue. And as she continues to lay on the cart, he slides his cock in her pussy for some slow and steady fucking. She ends up bent over the cart and he gets a little rough, with some slapping of her ass and hair pulling during some doggy action. And when he can’t take it any more he pulls out and covers her ass in cum, and then she falls off to sleep as he once again finishes his end of the deal. (review by Sean DPS) 9:00 minutes

Bonus Scene: Stimulant: Anikka Albrite and Danny Mountain: Anikka Albrite takes a shower with some soap. The camera does a nice job panning her beautiful body. While she is by the mirror, her man Danny Mountain walks behind her and kisses her neck. Their kissing activity is brief. Then, the woman gets down on her knees and sucks his sexual package with a lot of passion and drive. More excitement occurs when Danny eats and finger fucks her snatch from behind her. It gets even better when Anikka gets fucked on the sink counter. This sexy scene ends with him cumming in her wide open mouth. The very happy woman sucks his cum off. (review by Apache George) 15:32 minutes

 

Summary: Sleeping Beauty XXX by director Axel Braun for Wicked Pictures was another sexual adaptation of the original more than a true parody, but I understand the need to suggest the material as legally protected in order to stay out of trouble. Stormy looked oddly appropriate as the dark lead character and Anikka was as smoking hot as ever, the balance between experience and youthful enthusiasm nicely done. While the story elements were truncated too much to tell the story as a standalone feature, the sex was better on average than Axel’s last release in the series, the rating of Recommended a reasonable compromise as a result. In short, Sleeping Beauty XXX: An Axel Braun Parody was another of Axel’s “fractured fairy tales” that fans should find entertaining, the second disc of extras a marked improvement to the majority of his works though fans of pornified fairy tales or Stormy and Anikka should consider this a must have release by any standard.
