A shocking adult film!
23 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Kneel Before Me is one of the last Avon films before the theatres were raided in late '83. It is also one of the most sadistic. George Payne, who previously starred in gay porn films, grants us a psychotic performance of an innocent man who is coming to terms that he is the Marquis De Sade. During the night, he suffers from powerful nightmares where he proceeds to torture his wife; however, his wife in his nightmares appears to be that of Justine, one of the famous characters from the real Marquis De Sade books. George soon visits a shrink in an attempt to solve his problems. Instead of unravelling his problems and thus living a happy life with his newly wed wife, his problems continue to escalate until one of the characters die towards the end in a brilliantly well-done twist that came as a shock.

!!Spoilers!! Kneel Before contains many scenes of shocking perversion that will shock some people. In fact, there's bound to be something here that will shock all viewers. The genital torture imposed on Annie Sprinkle by the Marquis De Sade is hard to watch. Scenes of penis abuse will make any man watching quiver. The forced urine drinking scene forced Annie Sprinkle to quit porn for awhile. The only other scene that made her reconsider her career was the urination and abuse scene in The Devil Inside Her (1976). The sex scenes all take place in a darkened dungeon which adds to the unpleasant atmosphere already provided. Ron Jeremy takes part in the orgy, well before his days of success in mainstream adult films. The director of Kneel Before Me is Phil Prince, who directed many sickening adult films for the Avon theatre chain during the early 80's. The acting is quite good - some scenes contain George over-acting at times; but this doesn't spoil the viewing experience of the film.

You can purchase Kneel Before Me on DVD from Alpha Blue Archives. The DVD Boxset "Avon Dynasty: 1980's" contains 17 shocking Avon films from the early 80's. If you like Kneel Before then you will love this boxset.

Happy Nightmares! Pryce
