Storyline

Abe is a burgeoning perv with a guilty conscience. Todd is Abe's spazzed out BFF and partner in grime. Chaz is a girl with a boy's name who hides her feelings behind a thick layer of goth eyeliner. Ricky is the star jock with a secret in his pants he dare not expose. What these uptight dweebs could never have guessed is that the wholesome movie theater they work at used to have a lot more than just gum stuck to the seats. When a remnant of the theater's porno past surfaces, the kids are visited by a sex demon that gives them a taste of the dark side.

It's alright
5 July 2020 | by TdSmth5See all my reviews

Some kids work at an old movie theater. The owner is a fanatic Christian. The projector operator is a convert as well. The kids go along with it but don't make much of it. Two of them have sex on their minds. There's a girl as well, who has a thing for the remaining guy who's supposed to be the jock. The owner leaves for the night letting the kids watch whatever movie they want. They find some old crazy guy somewhere in theater who goes nuts and runs through a wall. The kids go through the hole and find a bunch of old reels and books and adult movie posters. The find one huge reel with symbols on it and decide to watch that movie. It's about some satanic ritual that features an attractive naked female demon. The kids label it a "porno" and their weak commitment to Christianity doesn't allow them to watch the rest of the movie

Still, turns out they watched enough of that movie to bring demon to life and she now goes after our gang. The movie owner also returns and falls victim to the sexy Lilith, not before the kids discover a naughty secret he's been hiding. Then the operator runs into the demon, and one of the guys becomes possessed. That leaves the girl and her would-be bf to resolve things.

Porno is that kind of movie you want to like. The cast is likable enough. The succubus theme is the most overlooked in horror and one that has much potential. Here's it's not particularly well used because Lilith isn't much of a seductress...unfortunately, because Katelyn Pearce is absolutely stunning. The huge pubic hair wig they've attached to her doesn't help though. Not quite sure why those things have become so fashionable in movies lately. It's completely unnecessary and looks ridiculous even if it's some poor attempt at time period accuracy. The ugly cinematography doesn't do this movie any favors, much is filmed mostly in green, the rest in red. None of it looks good. They make a huge deal about homosexuality and are not shy to show male genitals for some reason. No pubic hair wig there though.

I've never liked movies set in movie theaters, a trope low budget horror movies love using. Here it's ok though. This movie could have been much better had it focused on Lilith and developed her character more instead of focusing on the dull kids. Just as the label "porno" doesn't apply to the movie the kids discover, the title doesn't make much sense for this film either.
