It’s double the porno horror comedy, but does it double your pleasure?

I’m always up for some sex-filled horror comedies revolving around the porno industry. But did slasher Deep Murder and demon flick Porno tickle and tug on my funny bone?

DEEP MURDER (2019)

I’ve been waiting to see this porno slasher comedy with Jerry O’Connell for quite a while. The opportunities for sex and humor abound, but this film missed just about every one of them.

The pacing is off, the delivery of funny lines is off, the humor is painfully weak most of the time, and it relies heavily on viewers whose sense of humor gives them the urge to laugh every time a character name with the word clit in it is mentioned.

It’s like the creators tried to go for Airplane era humor but failed. I would argue that maybe I’m just too sophisticated for this kind of humor, but I’m not. At all.

The plot itself is also a headache. Characters in an actual porn suddenly find themselves being killed by a crazed killer. All these characters know is their porn existence fucking in a mansion owned by Goose from Grease 2, so they struggle to function in a world with a killer.

Even when characters like a detective or pizza boy show up, they are more prepared to dive into a sex scene than a horror movie. I know, it sounds like it should be clever. It’s just not.

Oh, and although he shows off his bare ass immediately, Jerry O’Connell is also barely in the film. Are you shocked?

On the bright side, there are some fun and raunchy kill scenes (some of which feel like they were stolen right from my gay slasher novella Scream, Queen!), we get to see full man wiener, and there’s a gay character. He’s also black (Chris Redd of SNL), so you can guess how long he lasts…

PORNO (2019)

Argh! Porno should have been everything I want in a sexy satanic horror comedy, but it somehow misses the mark more than hitting the bull’s eye—beginning with dragging on too long at nearly an hour and 40 minutes.

All that is good about this film is virtually packed into the last 20 minutes, which deliver everything I was waiting for all along.

it starts off promising, with two guys peeping through a window as a couple has sex. Then the guys bicycle off to work at a movie theater, where it quickly becomes clear this film takes place in the 1990s. Awesome.

Then we learn what’s really going on here. The small staff of kids working the theater consists of a bunch of purity virgin religious freaks. They pray for a good work night, but what they get instead is a pornographic take on Demons.

The kids discover a hidden reel of film in the depths of the theater, and when they watch the pornographic, occult footage on it they unleash a succubus into the theater. She can transform from woman to man at her discretion, so these religious kids are really about to be mind-fucked…when they get fucked.

I wish it was as good as it sounds, but a long stretch of the film just isn’t funny enough or scary, and it lacks all the demon action and sex we’d hope for. Things finally pick up when one of the kids is forced to face his sexuality (yay! gay stuff!) right before the kids witness one of their religious tribe participating in some seriously sinful perversion with the succubus.

That’s when the film at last goes more for a Demons vibe, with some funny demonic possession, satanic S&M, and the gay kid serving as the bait for the succubus…who appears to him as a hunky, hairy-chested stud.

Sadly, while this film goes for it with its presentation of straight sexy times, the gay sex is virtually non-existent, with the hunky man seen only briefly and shrouded in lights and smoke, and the gay boy’s sex scene nothing more than his reaction from the chest up to the stimulation. Blah.

While I wanted a little something more from both of these films, I am thrilled that they each feature some man goods and some gay stuff, which lands them both on my stud stalking page and my does the gay guy die? page.
