Extras: The only extras were a cumshot recap, filmographies, websites, a cast list, and trailers, very limited by any credible standard.
Audio/Video Quality: Carter Cruise: Wide Open was presented in anamorphic widescreen by director Manuel Ferrara (and writer Kayden) for Evil Angel. The flesh tones were accurate, the framing of some scenes a bit off, but the overall feel of the visuals somewhat different from Manuel’s usual gonzo releases. The audio was offered up in 2.0 Dolby Digital English but there was no separation noticed that I could figure out, and the dynamic range was pretty limited too; the scenes coming from quickly shot gonzo; the guerilla shooting style favored by pornographers everywhere.
Body of Review: Manuel Ferrara is one of the most sought after performers in the industry, his directorial efforts at places like Evil Angel not always showing him at his best. In his release of what is billed as a feature-lite called Carter Cruise: Wide Open, Manuel and his wife Kayden present popular blond hotty Carter Cruise in a minimalist story where the gal seeks out a variety of sexual stimulation, her reasoning left unclear courtesy of the feature elements. Still, knowing ahead of time that Carter would be in all four scenes was certainly a selling point to this fan, having seen dozens of her best scenes to date, even Carter at her worst would be pretty solid, yes? There was a blow bang, a lesbian tryst with Kayden, a heated anal fuck with Manuel, and the show closes out with a DP so there was definitely some strokable action taking place, better spotlight showcases for the young lady perhaps in the offing somewhere but this one well worth checking out too.
The company website described the production like this: “Pornographer Manuel Ferrara’s “Carter Cruise Wide Open” presents the acting and sexual talents of the titular blonde stunner in a stylish feature movie. As a mysterious nymphomaniac that can only get off on one-night stands, Carter aggressively seeks the dirtiest sexual thrills — the elegantly attired beauty pays people to fuck her and then fuck off. Buxom blonde Kayden Kross, who wrote the script, joins Manuel as a co-director and performs a girl-girl scene with the star. Carter pays hundreds of dollars to a studly bar fly (played by Manuel) to visit her candlelit room and dominate her with an intense, rough anal reaming. After a deep-throat face fuck she kicks him out ... leaving him haunted by her kinky, inscrutable charms. Striking in pearls and a 1940s ’do, Carter puffs a cigarette with red-painted lips and recruits a quartet of rough neck working stiffs to defile her in a circle suck. Face bathed in four spermy loads, she barks, “You guys need to get the fuck out.” Carter selects sharply dressed studs Mick Blue and Ramon Nomar for a nasty, animalistic threesome. She sucks tasty cock ass-to-mouth and the studs hammer her in a thorough double penetration. In every scene, Carter sports gorgeously refined hair, make-up and lingerie.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Carter Cruise, the hotty from the front cover, was up first in a darkened bedroom wearing a metallic gold dress as she invited Manuel Ferrara into the house. She peeled that off and then donned some animal print bikini undies and stockings, her look reminiscent of the pinup girls of old as she asked him to pull out his cock and stroke it as she climbed onto the large bed. As she had already paid him for his services, he complied, Carter slowly disrobing the lingerie she had just put on as he was supposed to apply some hand to gland friction for her. The camera focused on her but it was clear he wasn’t touching himself at all given his hands spread wide on the bed, the couple kissing with the guy tasting her pierced nipples before sliding his hand into her panties to warm her up properly. He then gobbled her gash and ass while slapping her juicy ass to her liking. By the time he peeled off her panties altogether, her hairy snatch was prominently displayed, his fingers worked deep into her perfect pucker as she diddled herself. He fed her a taste and continued, Carter aggressively slobbing his knob and nuzzling his nuts in a hand assisted hummer, her energy levels and eye contact nicely played. Given the poor camera angle it was difficult to see if she truly tossed his salad or not and the camera operator continued to chop off her head at times, Carter leaving the blow job to mount his turgid pecker for some increasingly active vaginal positions. There was face sitting and Manuel soon complied with her demand that he pork her pucker, Carter passively taking it until well into the tryst where she put more hip into it, additional positions helping to drain his dragon of sperm that he launched all over her face (before she sucked him clean). The company website described the scene like this: “Blonde knockout Carter Cruise can only get off on one-night stands, so she pays stud Manuel Ferrara to fuck her and then fuck off. In her candlelit room he sucks the pierced nipples showing from her elegant lingerie, spanks her ass pink and eats the shaved gash beneath her bushy fur forest. With spit and a pierced tongue, Carter laps balls and fat, uncut cock. Manuel gets rough, choking her, mauling her tits. They fuck intensely. She sits on his face while stroking his meat. A dominant, hair-pulling anal reaming (with his foot on her face) renders masturbating, howling Carter delirious; she tastes his huge prick ass-to-mouth. There's a deep-throat face fuck. After a cum facial and an oral cock cleaning, the satisfied customer kicks the stud out.”
Scene Two: Carter Cruise, next up in a purple demi cup bra and skimpy panties, then pounced all over similarly dressed Kayden Kross in the candle lit bedroom, no explanation or feature elements used to bridge the two scenes from Carter’s perspective. Kayden was dressed to spec by Carter and their kissing led them to jump on the bed, the smeared lipstick approach showing neither cared to “look pretty” as they orally serviced one another. It wasn’t a bad scene in that sense but it was fairly limited, a tryst that I would classify as a performance over the couple having any real chemistry as they licked, fingered, and sucked all the right body parts. Then Carter pulled out a sizable striped dildo to partially insert into Kayden’s ass, the blond co-director diddling herself rapidly before both started kissing again and sharing the toy to suck clean. Kayden then took a turn in charge and ravaged Carter, pretty much by the numbers but not unpleasant to watch a time or two. The company website described the scene like this: “Blonde knockout Carter Cruise is glamorous in refined lingerie and red painted lips. She sensually strips buxom, tiny-waisted blonde Kayden Kross, exposing bullet nipples, and dresses her in lingerie and stockings. The gorgeous ladies make out, smearing lipstick with mouth kissing. Kayden sucks Carter's natural, pierced tits and eats pussy. With Carter on top they share a 69, fingering, licking, gasping and wailing. Carter rims Kayden's asshole and fucks it with a thick glass toy as Kayden masturbates. Kayden uses two hands to finger Carter to orgasm. They wrap up in each other for intense, pussy-on-pussy humping. Kayden rims Carter and digs three fingers in her gash. Satisfied, they kiss the flavor off of each other's pretty face.”
Scene Three: Carter Cruise, next up in a frilly black top and patterned skirt, approached the mope squad comprised of Eric John, Chad Diamond, Chad Alva, and Filthy Rich, with some money, hiring them for a blowbang. She lined them up in the same bedroom and crawled around in her flowered bikini undies and stockings, teasing them just enough before kneeling down to blow them all, the guys blathering endlessly as she throated them one after the other, beating their meat as they rubbed their modest members on her face and felt the need to jerk off to stay hard. I’m not a big fan of blowbangs even when the talent is really good (in the case of the men), the low grade nature of this bunch not offering sexy Carter much at all (presumably, other than her character’s need for sexual stimulation of increasingly nasty kind). Eric did go down on her as she stroked the others, Filthy taking a turn as well before she cycled through the others, the choking of her neck not tight enough to change the color of her skin before the guys started milking their balls dry of semen all over her face (she then sent them away). The company website described the scene like this: “Blonde beauty Carter Cruise, elegantly puffing a cigarette in pearls, painted red lips and a 1940s 'do, recruits a quartet of rough neck working stiffs to defile her in a circle suck. Aggressively she sways her ass in a thong, telling the dudes to stroke their dicks. Chad Diamond, Filthy Rich, Chad Alva and Eric John surround her, cock-slapping her gorgeous face. Stroking, sucking and spitting on four big boners trashes her refined make-up. Carter deep-throats and laps balls. The lucky bastards get rough, choking her and stuffing her mouth with multiple pricks at once. 'Finish me off!' she bellows as Chad eats her hairy bush, and it's orgasms all around. Face bathed in cum, a suddenly sober Carter barks, 'You guys need to get the fuck out.'”
Scene Four: Carter Cruise, this time taking a bath to freshen up instead of the earlier shower, all to a stilted narration by the writer, was then up last in a scene where Mick Blue and Ramon Nomar gave her the advertised DP with ample anal to satisfy her fans. The obsessed Manuel was shown tracking her down to watch the scene with a group of others, her two scene partners wearing suits as she kissed them (Carter adorned in some old fashioned lingerie). The smeared lipstick was played up and the guys went down on her front and back, reversing so both could taste each side until the lady was jerking them off as they diddled her. Carter then dropped down to throat them with relative ease, bouncing between the two men’s raging erections before they started taking turns pounding her vaginally, anally, and then in double penetration mode, some intermittent oral included along the way as the partially veiled audience watched silently. The guys slapped her ass at times and were a little rough but nothing Carter hasn’t seen in greater quantity previously, the gal an active rider some of the time and her eye contact divided as expected. They guys nutted on her face and she gave them some post coital head, Carter catching glimpses of the camera a bit too often and obvious for my taste. The company website described the scene like this: “Gorgeous Carter Cruise looks striking in heels and elegant lingerie with a flower in her blonde hair. She selects sharply dressed studs Mick Blue and Ramon Nomar for a nasty, animalistic threesome ... and the fashionable filth is witnessed by an envious voyeur. The men simultaneously eat Carter's furry bush and rim her butthole. She sucks their big boners in a double blow job, and then one dicks her mouth as the other nails her pussy. It's a rough, back-and-forth fuck lubed with gag spit and accented with choking and hair pulling. Soon Carter's getting her hot ass reamed, and orgasmically choking herself! She sucks tasty cock ass-to-mouth before the studs hammer her in a thorough double penetration. Hot, creamy ribbons spunk her face.”
Summary: Carter Cruise: Wide Open by director Manuel Ferrara & Wife for Evil Angel came across as a wannabe feature, the feature elements so light that I hesitate to call it such no matter how much I like those involved in the movie, the spotlight showcase of Carter Cruise in four new scenes enough to merit a rating of Recommended from this fan. Manuel’s attempts in directing features have largely fallen flat for me of late, especially when he has been “helped”, less because of the sex than the story aspects, Carter’s range as an actress certainly not at issue given her past successes. That said, She gave good performances in her scenes, really shining with Manuel most of all, and this is certainly a “must have” for her legion of fans even if they consider the modest story portions to be “fast forward fodder”. In short, Carter Cruise: Wide Open is best considered to be a spotlight showcase for the attractive young star, her physical appeal and ability to work with just about anyone making her well worth your time so check it out and let me know how well you think she did.
