Its full title a whopping 14 words long, "Sherlock Homie" finds Sean Michaels in a playful mood for one of the most off-beat all-Black porn videos I've ever seen.
That's because he avoids the awful stereotypes and instead amuses himself with a parody of Conan Doyle stories, with a supernatural story that would generate a crossover audience if it weren't such esoteric porn in form. I'm glad I went the extra mile to see it.
With an atmospheric castle location and some convincing exteriors, his period piece has Sean as the master of deduction Sherlock Holmie, abetted by his loyal partner Whatsup, played by Julian St. Jox. Their companion is the dim-witted police foil Det. Lefool, nicely overplayed by Valentino.
The case deals with a strange legend of Isabella the Maneater, a supernatural character dating back over 100 years previous, who sucks the evil out of males who are abusing women, leaving her men sort of tabula rasa, able to start over fresh after her painful intervention, and to sin no more. As a sort of Victorian feminist crusader, the notion is rather refreshing, and works fine in a porno context.
Lana Sands is the attractive Isabella, appearing to meanie Mr Marcus after he's been physically and emotionally abusing his better half. She humps Marcus and he'll never be the same again. The other principal female character is Janet Jacme as Mrs. Wentworth, who handles Sean's flowery dialog with aplomb and makes me wish she had been given other character roles to play amidst her admittedly arousing 100s of gonzo efforts.
The guys get their comeuppance and the girls, including luscious Jeannie Pepper, top Black star during this period, put out nicely in and out of authentic looking period costumes. Production is slapdash, but Sean's heart is in the right place.
And I especially enjoyed his vaudeville humor thrown in at both expected and unexpected places, including such dynamite catch-phrases like "By Jove, I think she's got it!".
