Unusual feature film, like Night Trips, will steadily rent for at least six months. Nice packaging.
The scintillating vision of erotica on display in Andrew Blake's House of Dreams boldly portrays what no director has been able to put on the screen before. That it surpasses both Night Trips and Night Trips II might surprise the novice viewer, but those of us who review adult films for a living and who look for something new and unusual might be blown away by this instant masterpiece.
Every sex scene tells a story, with lush cinematography, special effects and the perfect camera angle on the scene. The feature starts out with lovely newcomer Zara Whites masturbating; she eventually steps out of her own body and embarks on a series of neo-realistic dreams. Each dream is a sexual odyssey, some of the finest filmed capsules of eroticism seen in years.
For example, the lesbian scene with Whites and Jeanna Fine, replete with leather and light bondage, ends with Jeanna donning a face dildo to literally screw the pulsating Whites. The remarkable encounter with Randy west and beautiful Ashlyn Gere is shot through broken glass. Another sex scene, shot in blue and pink negatives, gives the liaison a unique, yet pulse-pounding erotic feel.
And the unbelievable array of sultry segments do not end there. A spectacular beach segment, with sun-soaked bodies and waves crashing against rocks, begins when two girls under fishing nets are set free to explore their own sexual desires. It's astonishing stuff.
Director Blake gets the most out of his players -- especially Whites, who no doubt will become a superstar after this. The sex never lets up, but neither do the interesting effects. Perfect editing, beautiful settings, a seductive music score and a look that's all its own, adds to the overall effect.
From the opening title sequence, through every incredible sexual moment, House of Dreams is as close to a perfect piece of eroticism as this industry has seen. But we think Blake will even get better and he's the first director to garner the seemingly unattainable AAAAA rating in AVN history. The feature's that good.
Do I need to tell retailers that they should support this? If you don't stock this movie, you'd might as well close your doors. Because the future of adult films is here and you may miss it.
