Porno: Review

Porno

Abe (Evan Daves) and Todd (Larry Saperstein) are best friends who work in their local cinema that only ever shows two movies. It’s a small religious town and although the townsfolk continue about their business like any other, there’s an underlying influence of Christianity that governs the way they go about their day.

Abe and Todd work with Chaz (Jillian Mueller) and Ricky (Glenn Stott) used to be a couple, but since Ricky moved away over the summer they’ve been growing further apart and the status of their relationship remains unclear. Then there’s the cinema’s projectionist who Abe and Todd refer to as Heavy Metal Jeff (Robbie Tann), a recovering addict who has found salvation in Jesus Christ and is adamant in his teachings about the evils of drugs, sex and pornography.

Then one night before closing up, the group see a crazy old man wandering about and while they try and usher him out of the cinema, they come across a long-forgotten part of the cinema filled with old movie reels. Eager to watch something different for once, they roll one of the films and are shocked, excited and even a little aroused when they find the old film is an erotic arthouse film with demonic undertones.



Little do they realise, but by watching the forbidden movie a succubus has been unleashed into the theatre and once she’s had her fill of their teenage lust, she’ll be ready to drag them to hell.

Porno is a slow burn throwback comedy horror movie with dark, supernatural themes and is the directorial debut of Keola Racela. Playing on familiar set ups from other movies with demonic themes, Porno sets up all the familiar clichés of horror films but adds a few twists to their characters along the way to keep the audience invested in their stories.

Porno looks great as well, with stunning visuals from its Sixties Hammer Horror style celluloid nightmare, to its crazy final act that throws its leads into a fate worse than death. Although at times Porno gets too serious to be considered a comedy, there are frequent moments that will make the audience laugh. There’s also enough scares and body horror to keep any horror fans interested.

There’s even a moment that will make every male member of the audience recoil in terror – quite literally. Well played by its cast, Porno is just the thing to quench the thirst of horror fans and those looking for a little movie nostalgia.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
