The porn biz is in a panic. A killer is on the loose putting porn stars in diabolical sexual situations. The sole survivor (Amber Rayne), while being interviewed, gives a clue which delves you deeper into the story of the madman behind the puppet. It's up to Detective Roush (James Bartholet) and his partner Detective Humpsey (Syren DeMer) to catch him in this all-star comedic thriller adaptation.
While Saw: A Hardcore Parody is not the first adult horror movie, it is among the best to really poke fun at the genre. James Bartholet, who has provided comedic relief in several of his 80-plus movies to date, gives his first sexual performance in this offering, where he stars as Det. Roush, who is on the hunt for the mad man puppet responsible for the bizarre torture and murder of several porn stars, including Jay Ashley, Lexi Belle and Evan Stone.
Never one to pass up a chance to make people laugh, Bartholet takes it in stride when Emy Reyes pokes fun at his equipment, but really holds his own while she sucks him off before he goes down on her and they finish off the scene with some straight-on fucking.
The stellar cast list also features Ron Jeremy as the chief of police, who performs with legend Ginger Lynn in their first scene together in almost 25 years.
True fans of porn will appreciate the inside jokes sprinkled throughout the movie, including the hedgehog figurine on Jeremy’s desk, Amber Rayne telling investigators that when escaping from her torturer, she found herself “behind the green door,” and the movie’s tag line of “Oh yes, there will be sex …”
Though some other porn parodies might have contained a little too much blood and guts, Saw: A Hardcore Parody masterfully blends the thriller genre with parody in the true sense of the word.
