The box on this one looked good, but the movie itself plays like a bad Nine Inch Nails video - and we all know how sexy those are.
As a narrator early on tells us, Jenna Jameson is locked up in a mental hospital for cannibalizing her parents, then sentenced to death for doing the same to some fellow patients - sound sexy yet? Jenna preps for the electric chair, gets interrogated by Nazis, and descends into some kind of underworld. Most porno movies have ridiculous plots, and it just makes them more fun; the problem is that this one is creepy instead of campy. In the titular Belladonna-Jenna scene, neither of them looks like she's having fun (mostly Jenna looks angry and Bella looks sad); they're obviously acting, but it's not hot to watch. And there's a scary old man riding a tricycle around the scene. Lots of the stuff is potentially very hot: in one scene Nurse Jenna watches a doctor and patient get it on. Unfortunately the doctor (who's face is shown just enough to make it nasty) has freakish scab makeup all over his mouth (like he has herpes), and then there's the old man on the tricycle again. Jenna and the other girl are super-hot, but the two guys (along with the use of a speculum) just kill it. Then Jenna re-animates a corpse. Nothing can redeem a porn scene where the guy has pure-white eyes and an incision in his chest.
The later scenes are better: Belladonna does some contortionist moves with a normal-looking guy, and then there's a threesome. All of the scenes have hot moments, the girls are gorgeous, and every scene has a solid money shot at the end. Unfortunately you have to get around the gore, Nazis, hideous male characters, and freaky camera effects; all in all it's just not worth it. The production values are high, but the movie is too unpleasant to deliver the goods. If you want a big-budget Jenna movie, try "Dreamquest"; it's full of goblins, but at least they're alive.
