‘Corruption’ Review (Vinegar Syndrome)

Stars: Jamie Gillis, Michael Gaunt, Tiffany Clark, Milton Ingley, George Payne, Samantha Fox, Tanya Lawson, Marilyn Gee, Tish Ambrose, Kelly Nichols, Nicole Bernard, Bobby Astyr | Written and Directed by Roger Watkins

“One man’s fantasy is another man’s reality!”

Finding himself with a debt that he just can’t pay off, Williams (Jamie Gillis, Dracula Sucks) is tasked by shady mafia-like Franklin (Michael Gaunt, Maraschino Cherry) with something of a retrieval mission to a mysterious warehouse containing three coloured rooms; a blue, a red and a black one, each housing a beautiful woman. Williams sends his associate Alan (George Payne, The Taming of Rebecca) to carry out the task on his behalf, but with balls of steel, Alan has taken the item for himself and has disappeared. This leads Williams to pursue him down a gaping glory… I mean rabbit hole. Frustrated and desperate, Williams visits a seedy, desolate

The Latest Clinton Emails: Five Must-Reads for a Peek into Hillary's Personal Life: Homeland, Hairstyles, Naomi Watts and More
From a quest for a "fishtail bun" tutorial to an inquiry about what channel Homeland is on, the latest court-ordered release of Hillary Clinton's private emails gives us the biggest glimpse yet into her personal life.

The roughly 7,800 pages of emails released on Monday are full of fun tidbits and celebrity name-drops for politi-philes and laymen alike to geek out over.

First Linda Lovelace, Now Vanessa del Rio's Life Story Also Getting Feature Film Treatment

Sergio could probably speak more authoritatively about Vanessa del Rio than I could, so I'll let him fill in any holes (pun intended; or is it porn intended) left in my summary. But in an era when the lines between pornography and mainstream celebrity are blurred, with sex tapes becoming launching pads for lucrative careers in the entertainment industry, porn icons of old like Vanessa del Rio would probably fare very well in this century. She was huge (in more ways than one) in the 1970s and early 1980s, appearing in well over 100 porn flicks (softcore and hardcore) including Rear Busters, Afro Erotica, and many more. In fact, I'd say she was one of the business'...

Dave Attell Dishes On Why He Loves Late '70s, Early '80s Porn
Washington -- Dave Attell, a comic's comic, has taken his love of vintage porn and made a television show about vintage porn. If you work hard enough at something, sooner or later it pays off.

Attell's current television show, "Dave's Old Porn," is currently airing Thursday nights on Showtime. He also begins a four-night run at the DC Improv on Thursday. If you're a D.C.-area fan of Attell's brand of dirty fun, you have options. (Out of the Beltway, your options may be more limited.)

The Huffington Post spoke with the well respected, popular and endearingly filthy veteran comedian about his new television show, stand up and porn.

The Huffington Post:Why did you want to host a show about watching porn?

Dave Attell: This is not really about me. I'm basically promoting this show for the retro porn fans. It's a tribute show. It's not a deep,

Posterized Propaganda February 2012: The Dreadful and the Dread-Inducing

  • The Film Stage
“Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover” is a proverb whose simple existence proves the fact impressionable souls will do so without fail. This monthly column focuses on the film industry’s willingness to capitalize on this truth, releasing one-sheets to serve as not representations of what audiences are to expect, but as propaganda to fill seats. Oftentimes they fail miserably.



And we’re back after ignoring a month where the most interesting poster was Liam Neeson‘s face washed out in white. I’m not saying February is any better—because it’s not—but at least we’re distancing ourselves from the start of the year dump of films with marketing campaigns projecting their lower quality. There will be some moneymakers this month, but I doubt many will call them great movies.

In 1996, Lil' Kim was the standout member of the Notorious B.I.G.'s Junior M.A.F.I.A. crew. The Big Momma had stolen the show on their lead single "Player's Anthem," from the collective's album Conspiracy, and was again the main draw on their third single, "Get Money." Rapping alongside B.I.G. himself, the Queen Bee held her own and previewed the extravagant lifestyle that would play out in the video.

The Notorious B.I.G. died an untimely death on March 9, 1997, the year after the video's release, but it remains a part of his and the Junior M.A.F.I.A.'s musical legacy. When last week, she spoke to MTV News about the memorable clip, walking us through it frame by frame.

Suitable for any coffee table

Taschen, the book publishing company that specializes in very expensive coffee table books on art, architecture, fashion, photography and film, also puts out books about pop culture and in particular dealing with subjects of a more…ahem… adult nature. And with that, they have come out this month, along other their other new releases, with Vanessa del Rio: Fifty Years of Slightly Slutty Behavior.

For you kids out there, Del Rio was without question the most popular and defining adult film star of the 70’s and 80’s. Literally an icon in the field, and was the first woman of color to become a major star in the adult entertainment field. As rapper Foxy Brown said about her: “She is a role model for every woman who wants to express and enjoy her sexuality”

Jackson Thrilled By Porn Star

Jackson Thrilled By Porn Star
Samuel L. Jackson had a treat in store on the set of his new movie Soul Men - his favourite porn icon was among his co-stars.

The Pulp Fiction actor was thrilled when he discovered Vanessa Del Rio would be joining him in the film, which also stars the late Bernie Mac.

He says, "I was shocked the day we had Vanessa Del Rio on set. I'm sure a lot of kids don't have a clue who she is but I was excited about her because she was the first porn star who really enjoyed sex.

"When I was on set with her and Bernie he said, 'Man, she's about to kill me! She's jumping up and down. She's just butt wild.'

"She was having a good time. It'll be interesting to see how many people recognise who she is."
