Mask is P.T.'s porn version of the Darkman story – scientist Mark Davis is disfigured in a lab accident, thus short-circuiting his romance with new Vivid girl and centerfold model Lene Hefner. Lene is a long-stemmed, lovely blonde, who looks like a cross between Connie Stevens and Tiffany Mynx – all-American beauty with an eager, whorish touch. The body is Barbie come to life – large, round breasts with perky nipples, a tiny waist, a classic heart-shaped ass, not a hint of pubic hair, and those long, fabulous legs. While she sucks cock eagerly – going down on Davis in his car – and makes appropriate moans while being eaten or penetrated, she seems to be more on display than genuinely participating. In short, she's not yet a fully-realized sex performer, but she's got a good start here. Her standing and reverse-cowgirl staircase slam with Davis is beautifully shot.
The now-hideous Davis hires hooker Lacy Rose to perform for him with St. Croix and East – a pointless but very hot scene, as Lacy devours Steve while Nick bangs her butthole. Davis employs the facial mold he developed, which makes him look like Jon Dough, and thus irresistible to women. With inimitable porn logic, it also makes him four inches taller, now sans British accent, and circumcised to boot. Some facial! He demonstrates his new appeal in a threeway with Sierra and Brittany, who are so eager they start on the portico, eventually making it to the study for some blistering girl/girl and hetero action.
Predictably, Dough/Davis romances old flame Lene, and he has little trouble coaxing her into bed. It's a well-shot scene, but neither player catches fire. In a thudding anticlimax that just stomps all over the eroticism, Lene reveals herself to be a shallow, grasping bitch. Scriptster Lou Meyers flunks Screenwriting 101 as a result, but you can't fault P.T.'s fluid direction, nor the fine cinematography of Jane Waters and Jack Remy. Kudos to Double Vision for their best musical score in a long time. Lene is a gorgeous filly with a big future, and this is a worthwhile debut. Excellent boxcover.
