The powers that be sent me 6 more movies to review for this site, one of them really had my attention because for years I’ve watched the Bette Midler Halloween classic Hocus Pocus. I love the campy feeling of the movie. It’s almost like they went out of their way to make obvious mistakes in making the film. But as any of their millions of devoted fans of the movie will tell you, that is really part of the charm of the movie.
So when I heard that there was a pornographic parody being made of the movie, of course I had to take a moment to check it out.
In all honesty, I was on another review website and seen their comments about it. The reviewer talked about how great the sex was, but was really harsh on it for the very thing that made the original movie great. He hated the low budget, campy feeling of the movie. Clearly the reviewer never sat down on the 13th nights of Halloween before and seen Sarah Jessica Parker jump up and down saying Amuck! Amuck! Amuck!
The acting in the original Hocus Pocus was so atrocious that it because a big part of how great the movie is. The movie was never meant to be an oscar winning
Now back to the parody. Casting wise they did a great job. Bette Midler’s role was played by Audrey Hollander. There aren’t really that many red headed porn stars but out of the few there are, I think they made the best casting choice.
When it comes to the Sarah Jessica Parker character, there could have been no other choice than to cast Nikki Benz. They look so much alike and have very similar mannerisms. A few months ago I seen a side by side photo comparison that the producer had posted on Adult DVD Talk but when I started working on this review I couldn’t seem to find the image anymore so instead I thought I would create my own comparing the stars of the parody to the original.
The movie opens up with a 6 girl orgy. Later on in the movie you learn that the witch sisters draw their magical powers from sexual energy and would eventually be found guilty and put to death for corrupting the local townswoman. That apparently is what we are seeing in this first scene.
I read once from something the producer said about the movie some time ago that this scene originally lasted over an hour but in editing is was brought down to just over 24 minutes. That seems like a lot of cut footage. I think it would have been nice to had at least a few more minutes of Madelyn Marie with Audrey Hollander.
Like in the original movie, they make a few obvious mistakes but it wouldn’t be true to the original if they didn’t.
In the next scene it brings us into modern day times. The witches house is now a haunted museum and every year they throw a Halloween party. Employees of the museum are preparing for the party when they get sidetracked by sex. The threesome involves McKenzee Miles, her boyfriend and Amia Miley.
I first seen Amia Miley on some teen website with her body all greased up. I watched her scene and immediately fell in love with her. She has this very cutesy look about her but has a mouth like a sailer. In this scene with McKenzee Miles she doesn’t disappoint. Half way through the scene there is some smoke in the corner and through some great looking special effects, especially for a porno, a woman starts to appear. I wasn’t quite sure who the person was at first but later on I found out her name is Sea J. Raw. The other three don’t seem to notice the person is there. I took me awhile to realize it, but it turns out that Sea J. Raw was actually not there, she was a ghost. I think she was meant to be the ghost that was causing the other three to get into the threesome in the first place. Sea J. Raw plays with herself and eventually a vibe magically appears. She then uses that vibe to fuck herself in the ass. She was so hot, I actually had forgotten about the threesome going on in the scene. But not to be outdone in terms of what was hot the male in the scene stacked his two females one on top of the other, to have sex with them. That was so hot.
In the next few scenes you get to see the now dead witch sisters be brought back to life and go off on their adventure to find a virgin to draw enough power from the virgin’s sexual energy to let them live beyond just Halloween night. The next three sex scenes involve each of the three witches having sex with different men that they’ve picked up at the party going on at their house. Turns out they weren’t able to find a virgin but were about to keep trying when they meet up with a very large breasted blonde who wanted to help. She knew of a virgin who has wanted to fuck her for awhile.
What they did right — I guess the best way to put it is that the sex was magical. Between the heated threeway scene with Amia Miley to Audrey Hollander’s anal sex scene. I like that the didn’t try and match the original movie word for word but that they stuck with what was great about it, the campy feeling. It worked for the original and for this version as well.
I think they did a great job with all the extras including several cast interviews and behind the scenes chatter. A lot of the lower budget movies tend to pass on this extra footage and I think that’s a mistake. How hard is it to take a few minutes to ask the cast some questions. I’m glad they did this. It was great listening to Eva Angelina talk about wearing her glasses to catch a cum shot.
The costumes were hot. I know that most men don’t watch porn to see what the girls are wearing but as a female, I can’t help it. That kind of thing matters to me.
What they did wrong – I would have liked to see a longer version of the first scene in the movie, the 6 girl orgy. I think if they had over an hour footage actually shot, I would have liked to see more Madelyn Marie. Surely somewhere in that 1 hour of extra lost footage, she was in some of it.
I liked the bonus dance scene they did with the fog. I thought it was very sexy and erotic. I really liked the song attached to it. I don’t know who sings it but is great. I had it stuck in my head for days and it was the perfect match for the dance number the three main stars of the movie did. But what I don’t understand is why they didn’t include more bonus footage or bonus scenes from the many other movies that Cezar Capone had previously done. I’m a big fan of the extras and bonuses on the dvd. But since they provided some other great bonuses, it’s not that big of a deal.
In conclusion — In the end the movie parody or not it is still a porno and people watching it want to see one great thing and that is the sex so really the only thing that really matters is how hot the sex was. In all the movie had 6 sex scenes, all of which where great. Some where better than others, but isn’t that always the case?
