Length: 112.5 minutes

Extra's: The best extra was the 35 minute Behind the Scenes feature that started off by showing some text to the effect of them handing the camcorder to the still photographer (Shameless) without any preparation and he shot it without any editing. While I doubt that was true, he did a fine job of capturing lots of the sex, the short interviews of the naked women, and the others on the set that made it all happen. Balancing out those elements is not an easy thing to do and make the feature fun to watch so I hope he gets another shot at showing the world what he can do in other projects. There was also two trailers, a photogallery, a coupon for the new RLD website (15 days membership), and a true double sided DVD cover).
Audio/Video Quality: Chasey Reloaded was presented in the same 1.85:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director James Avalon for distribution by Red Light District/Forbidden Cinema. The colors were accurate and the lighting fairly optimal this time with the sex was heated enough and the humor good enough to distract me more often than not as well. The colors were solid and there was some grain due to the lighting but this was a step beyond what I've seen from James' attempts at feature porn for the company a year or two ago (the ones I saw were very strokable and fun to enjoy by the way). There weren't any compression artifacts observed and the minor mastering problems encountered previously seem to have been addressed. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English audio track was okay but there wasn't a lot of separation or dynamic range to speak of and the vocals seemed somewhat hollow at time. Still, the vocals were easily heard and the music didn't get in the way much.
Body of Review: James Avalon has been in porn for years and while he almost brought features to Red Light District as a regular occurrence a while back, he has since been doing all sorts of things to stay busy (trying his hand with several companies before finding a fit he could live with). His current gig is with Forbidden Cinema and this brings him back to RLD as a distributor, though sadly not taking advantage of his skills with features and settling for a vignette format that really doesn't take full advantage of his skills as a director. The title was a showcase event of sorts called Chasey Reloaded, showing the most recent attempt by former superstar Chasey Lain to make a comeback, even though her best days in porn seen long behind her (her work at Wicked Pictures as their first contract gal stand in marked contrast to her "eventful collapse" at the yearly convention a few years back). I'll admit that I have long had a thing for Chasey due as much to her pretty eyes as the huge marketing campaign that promoted her as the best thing since Ginger Lynn in porn over ten years ago. Still, as some gals age gracefully like a fine wine, others come across as used up and skanky so I had my doubts about which direction she took. If you're still interested in the three scenes she provided here, continue to read the review, noting that she did two lesbian scenes and one with Christian, none of them using condoms:
Scene One: The Schoolgirl: Chasey Lain, the performer featured on the front cover, was up in a lesbian scene with youthful Lindsay Meadows to start things off. Lindsay was tied to a chair in the middle of a barren room, with Chasey sashaying in to play with her. I don't want to be mean and say that Chasey has seen better days but she really has seen a LOT better days and the bags under her beautiful eyes showed she needed some sleep or something. Still, Chasey had a MILF appeal and I'd be lying if I said that I wouldn't buy some lap dances or screw her for the right price (I wouldn't charge her much either...lol; kidding!). In any case, Chasey teased the clothes off her charge and then licked her a lot as the light music played in the background (wisely not covering the vocals I might add). Lindsay then started banging the former super star with a large strap on dildo, doing all of the work as she slapped Chasey's meaty ass. They did this in a few positions until Chasey licked it clean and the next scene began.
Scene Two: Asian Invasion: Christina Aguchi, playing a sexy Asian captor in a temple of sorts, brandished a flogger as she walked around Eric Masterson, who was on his knees before her. The camera was too intimate too soon here but she led him like a puppy dog to eating her out and she slobbed his knob in return. At that point, the vaginal pounding began and I was surprised to see him bareback as he has been condom only for awhile now. The way her titties and ass cheeks swayed when taking the cock were very nice and while she did not use dirty talk or bounce on his cock as actively as I prefer, she did a decent job here with the camera showing enough medium shots to make it worth my while. It ended when he rubbed out a load of population pudding on her torso, her fetish apparel still on her as she stroked her body and licked up the semen before the camera fade.
Scene Three: A Glass of Wine: Savannah Stern, a sexy little gal in a skimpy black dress, spilled some wine on her chest and found that Franko Del Torro was gentlemanly enough to lick it off her. This led to him snacking on her ass crack as Reno watched from a booth at the restaurant, Savannah obviously appreciating the oral attention she was receiving. Franko then started banging her cookie as she sucked off Reno, showing the kind of sexual aggressiveness that I had hoped all the gals would have learned by now. It was a messy hummer and slobber went all over the place, her eye contact with him excellent as though she were letting him know that she liked it. It was an active ride and while there was no anal and DP, she was very skilled at what she did for them as all three got sweaty. It ended when they jerked off to her face, the gal appreciating every drop.
Scene Four: Girls In Bikinis: Daisy Marie, Isabella Sky, and Chasey Lain, were up next by the large pool outside of a big house with the trio wearing bikinis. Daisy and Isabella made out and snuck up on Chasey, showing a sense of playfulness as they began stroking the gal's body. This led to light kisses and massages, Chasey getting into it and looking less hung over this time. The action was typical lesbian with the gals eating one another, using toys, and rubbing each other a bit from time to time; Daisy looking the most like she was having fun throughout the scene (but the others did too). Isabella took a technical DP with two toys stretching her out, a large bruise or blemish being the only thing on her ass to distract me from the view she offered. Chasey rubbed herself but she did little else in the scene besides pork her pal with the toys.
Scene Five: Fountain Fun: Tory Lane, a curvy babe that is widely known for being one of the most enthusiastic gals in porn as well as a great performer, was up next in a scene with studly John West. She wore a revealing red and black outfit that suited her nicely with see through panties that made me hard just watching her bent over. She spotted John sitting by the fountain in front of the large house, reading his newspaper and being oblivious to her needs so she walked over and attacked him. They pawed each other and otherwise explored each other thoroughly as if long lost lovers reunited, gazing into each others' eyes as they did so to elevate the heat. They spent considerable time going down on each other, savoring the experience rather than following a two dimensional script, always aware of what worked for one another and making it seem like there was no audience to hold them back. This led to the kind of chemistry some of the other scenes had far less of, making it a ball draining adventure far earlier as a result. She was an active lay in both her sweet little cookie as well as her perfect pucker of an ass, pumping on his rod like she was getting into it more as the scene carried onward. It was a hot scene with energy, chemistry, and enthusiasm, resulting in a big closing facial that she licked at as the camera faded away.
Scene Six: Under The Palms: Chasey Lain, waiting by some palm trees lit with white chrstmas lights and covered in flimsy material, finished things up in a night scene with everyone's favorite meterosexual, Christian. He took his time warming her up and as the closest thing to doing a male by the gal in the show (kidding!), she appeared to embrace his touch at least as much as she enjoyed that of her gal pals from the previous scenes. She gave an okay hummer when she dropped to her knees, working mostly the tip of his cock while he stood stoically above her, perhaps dreaming of a more active partner from either sex that he could be working with. He didn't eat her like I thought he would before he started nailing her pussy, the gal balancing on a tree during the standing portion of the action. This led to her actually bouncing on his cock like she was enjoying herself, a marked improvement from what she has done in other scenes for a very long time. They did a few more positions before he rubbed out a tiny load, ending the movie with a pretty fair scene overall.
Summary: Chasey Reloaded by director James Avalon for distribution by Red Light District/Forbidden Cinema was a pretty good movie thanks in large part to the supporting cast and technical acumen of the director and crew. The scenes starring Chasey were the weakest of the bunch but fans like me will want to see those as much as the others if not more with the amount of fuck for the buck and extras offering just enough stroke material to merit a rating of Recommended. In short, Chasey Reloaded may not herald the return of director James Avalon to feature porn making as I had hoped but I suspect that he'll be showing me he still has what it takes to earn my praise in no time if given the chance.
