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.
With the sophomore entry in the Wicked Pictures/Axel Braun Fairy Tales line, the director takes a much more conventional approach to the material than he did with inaugural release Snow White XXX—with the notable exception of the twist ending, which we would never deign to spoil. The result is a truly enchanting piece of adult entertainment that by its timeless nature alone is sure to draw countless viewers for ages to come.
Of course, with the smash success of Disney’s Maleficent this summer, that draw is no doubt particularly potent right now. Longtime Wicked Girl Stormy Daniels plays the witchy spell caster here, and much like contract sister Jessica Drake did in Snow White, Daniels shows a sinister side she’s rarely if ever unleashed.
In stark contrast to Daniels’ devilish Maleficent is Anikka Albrite’s pure-as-the-driven-snow Aurora, whose life is protected by the three good fairies (Casey Calvert, Claire Robbins and Axel Braun Productions contract girl Riley Steele) after Maleficent places the death curse on her.
It’s hard not to fall in love with Albrite from the very beginning, as she dances before her parents and their guests at a ball in her honor. It turns out, though, that the ball is just a dream—Aurora is already deep in her fated slumber.
Flashing back to Aurora’s birth, we witness the three fairies perform a ceremony to bless her, which basically consists of them giving King Hubert (Jay Crew) a triple blowjob. Later flashing back even further, Aurora seemingly has a vision of her own conception while wandering in the glade near the family castle; there she spots moms and pops (returned industry vet Shayla LaVeaux and top swordsman Mick Blue) wistfully bantering about the family they dream of having and then getting right down to the business of starting it.
Immediately following that, Aurora finds herself in another dream sequence, this time in Maleficent’s chambers, where the jealous witch attempts to siphon some of the young princess’ virginal fairness via lesbian osmosis.
Finally, as the classic tale goes, Prince Phillip (Michael Vegas) awakens Aurora from her induced sleep with a kiss … followed by much less innocent displays of his affection. But is it happily ever after from there for the two? That viewers will have to find out for themselves.
In addition to Daniels’ frightfully memorable turn as Maleficent, Albrite gives perhaps the best performance of her career thus far here, and Vegas is dashingly terrific as Phillip. Stunning art direction, editing as slick as it comes and a sweeping orchestral score only bolster yet another Axel Braun great. Expect this one to keep moving perennially.
