Somewhere in the English countryside stands the manor of Lord Edward de Willoughby, who, although maimed and unmanned in the service of his country, has established a cult of the Marquis de Sade. Here, sin is virtue, and a gang of monk-robed and -masked acolytes, and submissive women called Justines worship anal lust and sexual ecstasy. Danyel Cheeks, as a rock star plunged into this sexual maelstrom (with her chauffeur and British record-company guide) by taking the wrong turn, is a prototypical American bimbo. Her huge fake boobs and shaven pussy are a marked contrast to the natural bodies and lush bushes around her, but her sexual intensity fits right in.
Eleven or so sex scenes make this nasty wall-to-waller (mostly anal) a must-stock feature. Highlights abound, from the opening scene of busty female acolyte Juliette (the voracious Melanie Rowan) taking on four of the brethren in an initiation scene that ends with her doused in four cumshots; to the chauffeur joining Juliette and one of the Justines for a threeway ending with him screwing Juliette in her ample ass; to Danyel's initiation, featuring her servicing three monks, including a sandwich, and her taking an electrified silver bullet from the special attachment to Lord Edward's stump (relax, where his hand used to be, not what you were thinking).
Anal Manor is unabashedly filthy, well-shot, handsomely-mounted, edited with an acute sense of maintaining, not killing, sexual excitement in intercut scenes, and a textbook illustration of the right way to light video in chiaroscuro. Doubtless a nominee for Best All-Sexer and Best Anal-Themed Tape, it's not to be missed. Private's new features are setting a standard worthy of special attention from retailers, especially those who have sold their magazines for years.
