Movie Review: The Passions of Carol (1975)

It’s been over a month since Christmas ended and I still can’t help but wonder why there haven't been more Christmas themed porn films produced over the years. I know, It’s a sacred holiday to folks of the Christian faith, and the thought of Santa in an orgy with Mrs. Claus and the elves is beyond morbid, but still. Over the summer I learned from a pal that an adult film from legendary "Golden Age" director, Shaun Costello, called The Passions of Carol (based on A Christmas Carol), was discovered by a persistent archivist. As a fan of both porn and Christmas, I was overjoyed. The Passions of Carol had been released previously (by Video-X-Pix)to DVD from an inferior quality master, so the actual movie has been around, but film elements were unfortunatley thought to be lost – until now. Video-X-Pix recently added Shaun Costello’s, The Passions of Carol to their critically acclaimed line of Platinum Elite DVDs (Blonde Ambition, Maraschino Cherry and Deep Inside Annie Sprinkle all have recieved the Platinum treatment). Now, with the participation of Costello (Forced Entry, Waterpower, More than Sisters), Video-X-Pix delivers a brand-new remastered release of this tinsel covered porn oddity.

The Passions of Carol surrounds the life of the bitchy owner of Biva magazine, Carol Scrooge (Mary Stuart). She’s no different from Ebenezer, as she shows zero respect to her employees. Bob Cratchet (Costello regular, the late Jamie Gillis) takes the brunt of Scrooge’s cold, slave-driving treatment, by being forced to work extra hours at Christmas time to fix the flaccid cocks in the photos for her publication . Well as they say ,"karmas a bitch”. Soon Carol's visited by the the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future. The story is amazingly comparable to the Dicken’s classic, just with a few subtle changes, like hardcore sex... lots of it!

Movie Review: Pornographi (1971)

So far Pink Flamingo Entertainment in their short life as vintage filth purveyors have consistently shown a knack for giving some quality treatment to Golden Age classics that include their acclaimed “The Shaun Costello Collection”. Now the Danish company has brought a European adult film classic, Ole Ege’s Pornagraphi.

Comprised of ten short films, including such silent Ole Ege gems as: The Dream Girl (1966), Harem, Spanking (1970), The Pornmodel Ilse (1969), The American Girl (1970) and The Jolly Shave (1964), Crazy Strip (1966), Three Lively Girls (1964), Group Sex (1969), Springtime in Tivoli (1969). All the shorts were shot when porn was illegal so there’s an added naughtiness to the proceedings. One thing that’s constant about Ege’s short-films is that none are at all completely tasteless and it’s apparent with his craftsmanship that Ege’s as much an artist as he is a pornographer. Yes, we are talking porn here.

"Uncle Farts' '70s Grindhouse Sleazefest" Coming Soon!!

In this animated and live-action collection, the always inappropriate Uncle Farts and his sex-starved nephew Scooper are just settling in for a raunchy 1970s Soft-Core DVD Marathon when their prudish nosy neighbor blows the whistle, and their house is raided by the authorities! Luckily, it's the Vice Squad that arrives, and soon Uncle Farts and the whole gang kick back to enjoy four sleazy gems from the grindhouse era: Sex Odyssey, Dionysius, Honky Tonk Nights (starring Carol Doda, Georgina Spelvin of The Devil in Miss Jones and Serena of Pleasure Palace)and Satan's Daughter. More offensive than Family Guy and featuring crappier animation than South Park, UNCLE FARTS' '70s GRINDHOUSE SLEAZEFEST contains over three hours of soft-core sex films from the weird, wacky and very hairy '70s, delivered by our favorite cartoon family, Uncle Farts and Scooper "the boy wonder". The price is a meager $19.99 for this hanky soaker and is set for release on 3/22/11.
