SATANIC INFERNO's title comes on way too strong - we don't get any Satanism and zero fantasy content, but rather a stimulating all-sex video spotlighting the lovely Zara Whites. Since it was produced by Sascha Alexander, the 77-minute feature is overshadowed by a 24-minute prologue starring his wife Sarah Young opposite Mr. Reliable, Peter North.
That English-language prologue is a classic, with North wearing glasses and surprisingly convincing as Sarah's shrink. Her complaint is getting no sleep (nudge/nudge, say no more), plagued with erotic dreams. North hypnotizes her and shtups her, with an extremely satisfying anal-sex interlude. His fans will be a tad surprised that the money shot finale is at the volume of a normal guy, not North's usual output measured by the pint. The Canooker is human, after all!
Main feature is extremely well-lit, making it atmospheric (a Salieri specialty) as well as erotic. It's bookended by scenes of Whites sent through a door (marked "999" next to it, the closest the show gets to Satanism with its connotation of "666" upside down) into a room filled with candles, but oddly enough no rituals or demonic nonsense is introduced. Instead there's a sleazy, bearded guy in a tux (who has the last word at the end, unintelligible to me dubbed in German, though I would probably have been baffled by the original Italian track as well) who introduces Whites to a high-class form of prostitution.
Unlike the usual Salieri densely-plotted video, this one is mainly tableaux of Whites and especially her co-star Jeanna Fine, involved in group sex. Head maestro is Roberto Malone, with another American import, Fine's frequent co-star Sean Michaels, also getting his licks in. Oddest staging has over a dozen nude guys masturbating, waiting for a slim blonde to service them.
Salieri adds a sense of class to the proceedings by taking great care over the settings and costuming, in addition to his expert lighting (a treat compared to the usual slapdash visuals of shot-on-video porn). A remarkable scene in a restaurant moves the video into "plays like a real movie" territory, albeit briefly.
