Paul Thomas is justly lionized for his many excellent porn features, the most famous of which (e.g. "The Masseuse" and especially its remake) are industry staples. He usually brings something extra to the table, and that is definitely the case in this fairly obscure but highly rewarding chamber piece "Over Her Head".
Styled as a vehicle for busty Vivid contract girl Sunrise Adams, the feature is much more, as a mystery evolves when Sunrise takes up the invitation by stray passerby Paul Thomas (the director in a modulated non-sex supporting role) to stay with eccentric and wealthy Trevor Zen for a week at his secluded home.
This arrangement sounds totally fishy to Sunrise and the viewer as well, but what the heck, she goes along in order to receive a whole lot of money just for being Trevor's companion. The script by PT's regular writer Tony G is good enough for a mainstream feature, but I found it more interesting to watch in a porno context since the explicit sex fits right in with the premise.
Necessarily padding out the running time is a sex scene at Evan Stone's bar involving him and Haley Paige - Sunset works at the bar, integrating the scene into her story. Among Zen's diversions is staging sexual "tableaux vivants" at his home, an excuse for Lisa Marie and Trent Tesoro to unfreeze from their statue-like poses and hump for our delectation.
There are effectively creepy moments when Sunset wakes up at sunrise and finds Zen sitting in a chair near her bed quietly observing her. The strangeness of the tale keeps one's interest throughout, leading to a surprise final twist that makes perfect sense but is still unusual enough to keep one guessing. Jennifer Luv in a key supporting role adds to this final mystery.
If folks widened their horizons a bit, this would be a perfect film for mainstream filmmakers to rip off successfully -after all nowadays nearly all story-line porn is presented as rip-off parodies of mainstream material. But as it stands it is a little gem tucked away for adventurous Adult Entertainment fans to discover.
