Critical Rating: AAAAA

Almost one year after its initial release on video and its sweep of the 2002 AVN Awards, Wicked's dystopic sci-fi feature Euphoria makes its debut on disc.

With wins in Best Video, Best Screenplay — Video, Best Special Effects and a slew of monoliths for its cast and crew (Best Director — Video for Brad Armstrong, Best Actor — Video for Mike Horner and Best Actress — Video for Sydnee Steele), plus a rare-as-a-Billy-Zane-sighting-at-a-Ron-Jeremy-look-alike-contest content rating of AAAAA, the feature alone would be worth buying for addition to any serious adult library.

But the feature's two-disc set is far from resting on its laurels of Lucite. Fans of adult with widescreen TVs are in for a treat with the anamorphic transfer of the video, encoded in Dolby 5.1 and DTS surround sound. Even those with standard-format TVs will notice the quality of the picture and colors.

Just as entertaining is the featurette about making the movie, accessed through extremely well done computer-animated menus. The footage includes sections on the movie's special effects, and the bad luck that ran throughout the production and post-production of the feature, which the behind the scenes footage fell victim to — a disclaimer at the beginning of the extra footage describes how the masters had been stolen and what was presented were low-resolution cuts digitized from the masters.

But the bad luck didn't stop the movie from the accolades it received from AVN— which Wicked presents on the disc with footage from the AVN Awards Show. Give it pre-noms for Best DVD, Best DVD Extras and Best DVD Menus.

Euphoria lives up to its title for any serious collector of adult, and may be just what Wicked feels again on January 11, 2003.
