Comments:Thanks for the info on the ForbiddenVideo.com, I have seen some of the vids offered there but wasn't fully satisfied. I'm beginning to think ZFX has ruined me for other bondage vids because it's so damn good and doesn't rely on the "master/slave" thing.

For those looking for simulated snuff films, check out orgasmagoria.com. They've got short 5-8 minute clips with girls being tied and gagged (sometimes) and then strangled, suffocated, hung, stabbed, or whichever the vid is about.

Speaking of suffocation, my main attraction to Insex.com is the breath play that is often used with plastic bags taped over the girls' head. Highly erotic and an awesome way of torturing a female, I've noticed the "bag over head" has popped up now and then on ZFX vids and I'd like to ask Rick if he might think of focusing on the plastic bag over head torture in an upcoming video. The key to it, of course, is that it look real. On Insex.com I've seen some vids where he'll tie the girl down, tape the bag over her head, and then let her sit there while he goes about his business. Slowly, you can see the bag getting drawn in closer and closer and the girl eventually starts to panic before he opens a small hole.

If you put breath play from Insex into the non-consensual world of ZFX, you'd really have something cool. Of course, you'd have to get the girls to try it....

Not sure how to end this April Fools' Day post, so let's just say I'll confess to having two young ladies tied and gagged in my basement ready to undergo a day of torture at my disposal. They are not willing, and are certainly not happy, but they will be fun to torture......
Damn, April Fools.

Comments:Methos~You and I are of like mind as far as the bag thing goes. There's something so erotic about watching a woman struggle and panic with a plastic bag tied over their head and unable to to anything about it. The panicked reactions are the best part. I'd love to see more of it in ZFX (Lisa hasen't been bagged in a long time).

On a similar theme, going back to the upside-down dunking of Lisa, Rick and I had a brief e-mail conversation about having it done it a plexiglass encloseure. He said he liked the idea but the cost to build such an enclosure would make it prohibitive to do. I don't know what the cost would be for this but I was thinking, if it's something he'd want to film again (I'd love to see it!), maybe look into the cost of renting a dunking booth. Story line could have someting to to with carnival supplies being stored in some (haunted...Shockwave stuff) warehouse. "Carnival of Terror" or something. Anyway it would give such great visuals to see the victims face and most of her body struggling under water. Watching her boobs bounce in the bouyancy of the water. Just some more thoughts.

I have known about Orgasmagoria for awhile (Ginger looks hot as hell!). Any feedback on their stuff? By the way if you know about Orgasmagoria, Eyewitness is also back.

I'm still here, although ithout any new releases, like many of you I suspect nowadays I'm just lurking around waiting for something to happen, a new flik, perhaps?

Iago, in answer to your question, there are many good things about this board (Rick; the girls; the flix) but the best thing, and that which keeps me around, is the intelligent and tolerant level of discourse. Each of us has different reasons for enjoying these flix, different favorite actresses, yet we can discuss without judging or disparaging.

Sigh, waiting for more flix...

Comments:As long as I'm here (and being kept here much longer, by the lovely picture of Lisa, smile), maybe I will try a new thread or suggestion.

I workout in a gym three or four nights a week. The cardio room is arranged with several rows of equipmnt (treadmills, stair climbers, etc), all facing the front of the room. Thus, if you are on one of the machines in the back, you are watching the rear view of many bodies in the rows in front of you.

As in most gyms, some of the girls are of course fantastic, and oftentimes dressed in skimpy belly shirts and tight shorts. If someone particularly cute is running on the treadmill in front of me, I will stay on my machine longer just to watch her body move. Attractive women's bodies are of course beautiful, but there is something particularly enticing about an attractive woman's body in motion, flexing and stretching.

While I am savoring such tasty delights, of course often my mind will wander to fantasies of such women in ZFX-style bondage. Bonds around those cute ankles with the short socks women wear (sexy!), a nice leather neck collar, perhaps, some tight bonds around her wrists, her shorts pulled down and her ass put to work...well, you get the idea. Anyone else have the same experience, having ZFX fantasy moments at the gym? For that matter, where do you most often have ZFX fantasy moments? Is there any type of woman, setting, etc. that set you off, or for that matter, any individual woman you see regularly who you just wish you could place in a ZFX situation?

For most of my daily experiences, I would have to say the gym is the most likely place for me to have these fantasies, both because I am there so often, but also because there aren't many other contexts in my life with women stetching and flexing in front of me in skimpy clothes (sure doesn't happen at work (smile)).

Rick has used exercise themes in past flix to great effect (Beyond Driven; Forced Entry). I wish he'd do more of them, if only because they are so redolent of my daily experiences. What do others think?

Comments:hey Ralphus, Did you ever check out that Dan Hawke movie you posted the link to? It looks really good! I want to get the DVD version.. but i've never ordered from that site before.

Comments:AvF: I actually discovered Orgasmagoria just the other day, and I have both good and bad news about the site. The good news is that they are exactly what they claim they are. The chicks in the video's are really good looking, and they do a very convincing job, I.E. the acting is just believable enough that it doesn't take you out of it, and they have some VERY convincing special effects for the gore, if that's your bag. The bad news is.... that they are exactly what they appear to be, so basically you could easily go broke ordering all of their 5 - 6 minute vids at around $12.00 a pop. I went ahead and joined to see what kind of a discount I would get and it only drops to around $9.00 a video. So my recommendation would be that unless you are going to order a BUNCH of their videos, don't become a member, because it's not worth it. There is one other perk to joining. They make it sound like you will be able to download 5 full movies for free if you sign up, but the truth is that you don't have a choice. It's five movies that they have chosen, and you don't get the whole movie. Don't get me wrong, all five were VERY good. They show you plenty in the clips, it's just that it's a little misleading. Anyhow, that's my take on the site. Well worth a look.

I too noticed that Eyewitness is back. Now that's a site that I haven't taken the plunge on yet. The models look incredible, but they just seem a little to expensive, and they want you to mail cash in an envelope to Poland or some shit like that. Have you bought any of their videos yet? If so, what did you think?

Comments:Howie~Thanks for the feedback! Seems like there's a few like minded individuals lurking on the Gimp's board.See Rick, better get to bagging Lisa again.

Oragasmagoria looked pretty interesting and was curious. Not into the blood and gore part though. Did you get to see any with Ginger? Is she as hot as she looks in the stills? She portrays a school girl in one of their vids. Is she able to pull it off?, unlike some of those lame porn late twenties, almost thirty actresses who put on a cheerleader outfit and that's suppose to work. Yeaugh right. Some of their settings look interesting also. Like the one where Ginger gets abducted on the street at a, what looks like a school. I'm kinda curious to where they operate out of. As a member do they say?

Eyewitness~They are in the process of re-doing their ordering system to where you can order by credit card. I have not ordered any videos yet, only because of the concern you had mentioned. They make very good use of bondage in what I've seen from their stills. All tight bonds, even using zips ties for gags! HOT! And speaking of hot! I am totally in love with Olivia. She's hotter than hell!!! She looks a lot better in the stills rather than the model posed picture page though. I plan to check them out soon. If anyone else has any info, please share.

I have been having hell with my e-mail lately. It says I have e-mail but haven't been able to retrieve any for a couple of days. If anybody on the board has been trying to contact me I have an alternate address. It's the same begining except @hotmail.com. Even with that one I can only get into once every four tries. Don't know what the deal is. Just trying to keep us vampires down again I guess. Anyone have any reliable e-mail sources they could let me know about?

Comments:My obvious enjoyment of female torture (hence my love of ZFX videos for a decade) has led me to find which kinds of torture I find most enjoyable. The clear bag over a young girl's head is probably the best I can think of. Gagged or ungagged (although I always prefer gagged), it's unbelievably erotic to see their eyes widen with fear as the bag is pulled closer and closer with each breath.

Insex.com has, by far, the best bagging pics you'll find online. I've been a member of Insex for about three and a half years now and when a new post includes a bagging, it becomes a favorite of mine.

Lisa's bagging scene in WAR PIGS (i forget the number) is certainly a highlight reel scene. Especially the last part of it where she is really squirming and you can sense the panic setting in (Way to go, Lisa!)

I've been fortunate to have been able to tie, gag, and "play-rape" my female partners over the years, but never got to experience bagging one. I communicated with one woman for some time and we talked about it and were in the midst of setting up a weekend where she would submit to me when I kinda fell into a relationship and she also fell into one. We talked for some time after about setting it up, but decided that one weekend of pleasure might not be worth losing someone important to us.
Jeez, that weekend was shaping up to be a wild one! One of my life's regrets I don't mind saying.

Well, I've babbled on enough here. On the subject of Orgasmagoria, the site does rock but it's expensive for the vids. Want good "bang for the buck?", join Insex for a month and download everything you can (the site is fucking packed at this point). After a month, cancel. You'll have enough to go through for a long time. The older stuff is better on the site, anyway. And, if you look, there are some sets that include a staged scene that includes a "non-willing" victim. They aren't as common as the planned "master/slave" scenes, but they are very good.

Check out the Room 42 section for the best "69" you've ever seen.

Looking forward to Miss Ballista 3, and what's this about streaming video?

Best to all my fellow pervs out there. Make 'em squirm

Comments:Methos~Again, thanks for the added input. Actually I have been tempted for a while to join Insex but contrary to what it may seem like, with my input to the forum, I really don't spend all that much time watching B&D movies or surfing the web. I probably spend less time than anyone who come here at it. And that's my main hesitation, since you can't save the videos you download I would have to spend a great deal more time than I do on it now. If I could download, save, then watch whenever I want, that would be different. That's why I wished to hell that they would release on video.

Comments:Okay, someone has to educate me on this. What is Eyewitness? Anyone have the URL?

I checked out Orgasmagoria tonight. Wow, some exciting stills there! I was in hog heaven downloading all the pictures. I am of the same mind as Howie, however. Lots of stuff I want, but way too damned expensive. 13 bucks for 6 minutes? Talk about uncheap thrills. Now if Orgasmagoria wants to compile several of their shorts into a DVD or a video and sell that at a reasonable price, even fifty or sixty dollars, I would be interested. My guess is that they wouldn't consider it because they are making too much money gouging people this way. Figure it out. At this rate, one hour of their clips would cost roughly $130. Yowch! And people say ZFX tapes, at $40-45, are too expensive, and this next one is nearly two hours long. Quite a comparison.

Plastic bags: Yeah, I love 'em too, for exactly the same reason. Anything that puts the girl in a bondage life or death situation rings my bell. The scene with Lisa in War Pigs 2 was great, and Rick did the bag thing with Chandra Sweet in a couple of vids that I remember, Phantacide Peepshow 2 and my fave The Cheerleaders of Perilous U. In one of his earliest vids, he left Julia Kara tied to a bed with a bag over her head and a thin breathing tube sticking out of it in Hardbound Television, a terrific scene many of you may have missed. Rick posted about plastic bags a few years ago on this board, saying basically that his distributors frowned upon him releasing asphyxiation footage, so he was shying away from it. (Okay, those weren't his exact words, but that was the gist of what I understood.) At any rate, I hope he rethinks that decision, because it's obvious from this board at least that we all would like to see more of it.

Paulus Atreides: How was the Dan Hawke vid I bought from his site? Ironically, it was so good (At least the first half-hour, which is all I've seen so far) that I sent it back to Hawke along with an extra $5 so I could upgrade it to the DVD! The name of the tape is Lashing Liz and it looks like a total winner, but I'll have to wait until I get the DVD to finish watching it. BTW, no fears from ordering from Hawke's site. I've bought five vids from him with excellent results and quick service every time.

I also got a chance to see a couple of RDF loops tonight. Yup, they are pretty harsh, more so than the HOM ones and right up there as far as roughness with the Cole Loops featured in Erotic Perversion. At one point a woman crushes out her cigarette right on a bound girl's tit, and there is torture with pliers, insertion of objects into girl's pussies, and even a hot branding iron shoved down there, too! Now if they had ZFX audio (these were both silent) so we could hear the screams, they would have the whole package. :)

Comments:AvF: First, I to have been a member of Insex before, and the good news for you is you "CAN" save the movies at Insex. It's easy. When you download a film just click "Save Target As" and put in what ever directory you want. You can do that with any Real Media Hot link, and if that doesn't work there are "MANY" tricks to saving any type of file. Like going to your "Temporary Internet Files" in you Windows directory and copying them from there. If you downloaded it to on your computer, it's there in that file till it's deleted from it. There are some web masters who really know what they are doing and can put a stop to that, but most don't have a clue.

Secondly, I have the info you were asking for. I just downloaded and watched "School Girl Murder" with Ginger and it gets a most definite thumbs up from me. I'll give a short break down, (as if there could be any other at a 6 minute running time.)

First you see a shot of a guy sitting in a car pouring some chloro onto a rag and then it cuts to him driving his car watching Ginger walk along in her school girl outfit. GREAT ASS!! He sneaks up on her and takes her down very quickly with the chloro and drags her off to the car. Then we cut to him walking into a room with Ginger's passed out body flung over his shoulder. He throws her down on a bed. Ties her arms behind her back and puts a black cloth gag around her head and over her mouth and admires his handy work for a moment. She really is great looking. Then he wakes her up with a slap to the face. Ginger does a very good job of acting scared. Then out comes a length of telephone chord and he goes right for the throat. Ginger put a GREAT struggle, and the scene is VERY erotic. her legs flail about until you see the strength drain from her and then the camera goes in close to here face and we get to see the lights go out. Very convincing. You can even see the skin pushed in around the chord while he is strangling her. He the admires her limp form for a bit, props her up and strips her nude. You will NOT be disappointed with her body. She is gorgeous. He poses the body for a bit, fade to black and that is the end of the vid.

I also wanted to add something about "not" signing up as a member to the site. Yes you get each vid for $3.00 less than non-members, but you already paid almost $20.00 each month for your membership, so you would need to buy a TON of fucking movies to save any money. My advice is that if you want any of the flicks, just order them at the normal price. That will actually be the cheapest route.

Happy school girl (Ginger, not the real thing : ) ) hunting, and don't forget that you can save the movies the same way there as at Insex.

Comments:Ralphus: Here is the URL to Eyewitness.


You will LOVE it. No exaduration here in saying that some of the girls could easily be runway models. They are just that good looking. But as I said to AvF, they are very expensive and right now you have to send an envelope filled with cash over seas. Uhh, .. I don't think so, not while I can get incredible shit at video mayhem for $12.00 bucks a pop. But the video's do look like they are very well made, and like I said, the models are simply drop dead (literally in some of the tapes : ) ) gorgeous.

One last thing, while you are correct in your assessment that the vids at ogasma "what ever the hell it's called" are very expensive, I will say this for them. Yes they are short, but they pack a very good bang into that short time. Would I order all the vids? Only if I won the lottery and lit my fire place with $100.00 bills. But I do think it's worth a few dollars to go through and find a few that you would like to purchase. They are very well made, and believe me, this is as far from Master Slave as it gets. GREAT stuff. Believe me, these chicks aren't willing in the least bit, and as I've said about 100 times now in my ramblings here, THERE HOT!!!!!!! (^_^)

"Unwilling" Hot Chick + Guy who just wants to ruthlessly beat or torture her, in these vids even to the point of death = Good times. What a great fucking equation. How's come we never had shit like that in algebra? Ahh, I can dream can't I?

Tuesday, April 2nd 2002 - 10:26:01 PM
Comments:One last thing. It's a link to a site that has TONS of good links. Maybe you've seen it, but it's how I found both orgasma "watchamacallit" and eyewitness.

Comments:aVf/methos: Great reminder about the plastic bagging. For me, I'd expand that to anything done to the woman while she is helpless to stop it. It's especially good if she sees it coming and can't do anything to stop it, and we get a good look, and get to listen to, her despair and fear as it happens. That's neat. Rick does it with those monster dildos he likes to stuff down the throats of the girls in his films, and also with the assorted tubes and funnels he makes them swallow for his mad scientist movies. Great examples would be the Doc Bondage and Guinea Pigs movies, the bag scene with penelope in Incubus 2, the coffee in Ballista 2, or any of the Alien Probe movies. I'm not a big hot wax fan, but that gets good reaction from the girls, too. I think it'd be pretty cool if there was a woman strapped to a table like Kim Noble in Underland, but with a twist: The villain puts something on her belly or her hips, a liquid or horney alien-type thing, then taunts her, saying that it takes time for the substance to be absorbed, and she could stop it, if she could just reach down and take it off in time. The woman thrashes, struggles and begs, all the while showing signs that the drug or substance is starting to work (slurred speech or horniness or slowly becoming more obediant, for example).

zee-ef-ex, I know how you feel at the gym. Me, I sometimes close my eyes and imagine Penelope or Tabitha Jordan in their running outfits (assorted flicks) in front of me while I run. Great for making the miles go by, hehehehehehe, cough.

Comments:OK, so I guess I'm proven wrong. I knew you could save clips but was under the impression that you couldn't save streaming clips(I'm probably wrong there too, which I though Insex stuff was).

Ralphus~As mentioned in my last post I have been haveing a hell of a hard time with my e-mail.I Sent you a few pics from Eyewitness about a week ago with with the URL (although, now thinking about it, it could have been the old address). Did you not get these?

Howie was absolutly right on about the models at Eyewitness being so hot they could be runway models! They look hot, hot, hot, even in clothes (which has never been an interest of mine as far as bondage movies goes...keep 'em nude and barefoot.)!

Comments:I checked out the promo for the "Lashing Liz" DVD offered by Dan Hawke and was impressed. Thanks for pointing it out, Ralphus. The action looks to be Insex-like, and Liz appears to be the model known as "Cowgirl" on Insex (one of my personal favs).AT $55 it's a bit pricey, but should be worthwhile IMHO.

The ordering site says the DVD is sold out -- they are waiting to see if enough people are interested before they order another batch.

When you download a film just click "Save Target As" and put in what ever directory you want." Can you do this as it's downloading or only after it has finished?

Since I'm back, a quick commentary. You guys counld't fool me. I knew you were out there. I have brought up the subject of breath play a couple of times before (Bagging in particular). It finally took Methos' post to bring you all out of the shadows. It's about time.

Howie~thanks for the short review of the Ginger clip. I am particularly interested her because I was thinking of having a custom done. I have had conversations w/Orgas concering the subject with the inclusion of actual penetration. Was told that most will only appear nude but a few are willing to film with forced sex scenes (He mentioned one of the better looking blondes off the top of his head that he knew did not have a problem with it. Don't feel right to mention who though unless they plan on releasing material with it's inclusion.). I sent them a script but never heard back from them. Either Ginger wasn't willing to do sex scenes or they didn't like my script or MY DAMNED E-MAIL LETTING ME DOWN AND NEVER GETTING THE RESPONSE, if they did respond. Anyway, to everybody, keep us all posted on the better clips.

Comments:I had no idea this site existed. This is the coolest thing to happen to me today. Ballista 3 comes out on my birthday. Hah. Happy birthday to me. When I lived in Cali I could check out ZFX vids at any local adult store, but here in the godforsaken midwest, of course, such things are unheard of. A sad thing. It's funny how the home page says to recommend this site to all my ZFX fan friends. I have no fellow fans. I really know no real ZFX facts, although I talked to Kerri Downs on the phone a couple of times, as I bet many of you other posters have. That was cool. Someone tell me about how or why Penelope Pace retired. Anyone here talked to her? Is she alright? She is of course, my favorite. Someone tell me also the same about Chandra Sweet. Good luck to all of you, and more power to Rick and company! DHT

Comments:AvF: "Real" media clips download pretty quickly. No you cant watch the movie as you download it, but if you have a decent internet connection, Cable or DSL, it downloads in a snap. I haven't used a 56k in years so I can't vouch for how quick that will go, but if that is your connection waiting will be nothing new for you. (^_^)

Here is how you do it. When you click on the link for the flick, don't click with your "left" button, use the "right" button. When you do this a dialog box will appear. One of the choices will be "Save target as." Click on that and then you can save it to where ever you want. This works the same way with QuickTime video also.

The other option I mentioned is a little more involved, and you wont need to use it at Insex. But sometimes you will go to a site that for what ever reason has there movies configured so that the above mentioned technique will not work. Here is how you get around that. First go to your "Temporary Internet Files," folder located in your "Windows," directory and delete everything in it. This is so the clip you are about to download will be easier to find. Then go strait to what ever movie file it is you want to save and play it as you always would. When you are done go back to the "Temporary Internet Files," folder and find it in there. Don't cut and paste it, because that wont work. Copy the file and the past it where you want, and wha laa, you have the movie saved to your hard drive. As I said in my last post, there are some Web masters that even know how to stop you from doing that, but they are few and far between. Happy downloading.

Comments:I just read the Ralphus review of SOUTH OF THE BORDER 5. It states that Penelope Pace is in it and has three scenes. Is this true? Not that I doubt Ralphus. I guess my real question is, why isn't she ever listed in the credits for this release? Are her scenes from another video? The review mentions that her scenes are being watched on a monitor. Are they always on a monitor or do we ever see them firsthand? I'm basing whether or not I buy this vid on what info I may get.

Comments:AvF: Nope, never got your e-mail with the Eyewitness pics, but we'll try using your Hotmail account and see if we have better results.

Speaking of Eyewitness, I checked out that site this afternoon. Oh yeah, baby! A beautiful actress, abduction, bondage, electric shock torture, and a hanging finale. I am so there! Only trouble is that the online ordering section was not up yet, but as soon as it is, I'll be parting with more of my hard-earned pay. I take it no one here has actually seen their tapes yet? Pricey yes, but I'll pay more for quality stuff, and these look too irresistible to pass up.

Regarding the DVD of Lashing Liz: if you want it, write to Hawke's site and request it. Let's get a grass roots thing going so we can get it on DVD. How are they going to know that people want it if it says it's sold out? The e-mail address is above. Trust me, what I saw of this tape was great, and I got a bunch of stills when I joined his member site last month that makes me certain this one is a winner. Here's a teaser pic on my Homepage URL above.

Paulus Atreides: Do you have the URL to Liz Tyler's website? I had never seen her before but she's a cutie, and a good actress, too.

DHT: Welcome to the forum! We're glad to have you. Penelope is indeed in SOB-5, but her scenes were unrelated to anything else in the story. Most of her scenes were presented like any other ZFX scene, not just on a monitor. They did appear to be shot at another time and could have been dropped from the tape without hurting it at all. That said, I would definitely recommend that tape, because it is loaded with rape and torture and you get your money's worth with this one.

Comments:Congradulations to all who have made this site possible, I haven't posted lately but have stopped by from time to time to see what was happening. Couple of observations - First on breath control - Rick had a video a couple of years ago, actually maybe 3 or 4, called the Worm, with Marilyn Malone and Chandra Sweet. Chandra starts out as the first victim and evolves into one of her patented villians. With that crazed look she can get, I always thought she was a better villain than victim. Anyway, at the end of the video, Marilyn is put into an airtight chamber, and we watch as the air is drawn out slowly, she succumbs quite nicely. This was actually one of the more extreme videos that Rick did, one of my favorites as Marilyn was an extremely flexible young lady. I have been surprised it is rarely mentioned by anyone else. The only disappointment in the video was that we were told to watch for the sequel, alas, everyone is still waiting. Anyway, if you haven't seen it, it is one I highly recommend. Looks wise, Marilyn is not in the company of Lisa or Penny, but she still is hot.

Second, regarding Insex, you cannot download the full movies, but you can downloads the real player segments, and string them together to get virtually the same effect. Insex is an interesting site, but I much prefer what Rick does. IMO Insex is more about humiliation and abuse than an "artistic" display of beautiful women. I find Insex to be interesting from a psychological point of view, but can not touch ZFX as far as being erotic. I guess I prefer my torture being realistically simulated ala ZFX than the real thing. Been too long of a post, but I will echo the sentiment expressed that breath play is erotic and would like to see Rick do some more of it. Once again, congradulations to all connected with this forum, who have labored so hard to keep it going.

Ralphus, if you get your DVD, could you mention it in this forum? It might indicate that a second batch is available.

..and if you really like Liz Tyler, you could also join Insex for a month and download lots of material she has done there. I wish Rick could get her to appear in one of his shows!

Comments:Ralphus' mention of Rick's comment concerning his distributors weren't happy with the idea of asphyx scenes in the videos a few posts back got me to thinking about a couple of things. First, Rick has BEEN (since I don't know HTML and don't know how to write in italics) including scenes, stranglulation mostly. SOB5, I think it was, that has both a strangulation scene and a suffocation scene of Lisa with a sheet of plastic. And the second thought, to get by the distrubutors he could ommit all text and pictures on the box related with it. We'll know because we have the board and Ralphus' reviews to let us know. And third (yeaugh I know I only said two...but a third thought entered...can't stop progress)it looks like Rick is going to be doing direct merchandising soon (correct me if I'm wrong) and possibly put out a general distribution version and one for direct sale at his site with added scenes (Director's cut, member's bonus versions. Added scenes, commentary, participants thoughts and feelings, Lisa's screaming how much she want's to be with the Hollywood Vampire......sorry, got carried away.). Just some thoughts.

Comments:Fallstaff: I have to disagree with you about being able to download the full movies at Insex. Yes, they have them split into segments for the bandwidth challenged people with 56k modems, but they also have a link which contains the full video. All of this is in Real Video, and I have many of the full versions on my hard drive right now. Just thought I'd point that out to you so maybe you can go download your movies again. I know I much prefer to have the full segment in one file as opposed to having it split into a bunch of them.

By the way, I'm also in complete agreement about liking the ZFX style of simulation as opposed to the real thing at Insex. 1st of all, at Insex, since it is real, you can see that they are taking precautions to not really cause any irreparable damage. With the ZFX simulations, the attackers just go balls out wild with no regard what so ever for the female victim. Hmmmm, feeemale victummmm. 2. The acts that they do perpetrate are sometimes even a little to much for me to watch knowing that it is real. I.E. sewing of lips together, needles under fingernails. Something about knowing it's not fake pushes a line for me that goes a little outside the boundary of erotic, and falls a little more to the just plain disturbing side. Anyhow, that's my take on it. Not that I'm putting the site down, it's just that it's a little much for me at times. With a simulation, I can let my mind get totally caught up in the fantasy. That's just not always the case when it's real. At least for me anyhow.

That actually sounds like a good topic for a new thread. Which do you prefer, ZFX style simulation where all boundaries are removed because it's all fantasy, or real style torture like Insex?

Comments:On the Insex vs ZFX style -- there are elements of each that I like and dislike. I suspect a lot of people may for one reason or another feel this way.

Over time, there has been more & more stuff on Insex that I don't like at all. I don't like the real torture aspect at all. The sewing scenes, fingernail torture, piercings, etc. I find extreme and won't watch. I also don't like the apparent fascination with graphic enemas and bodily elimination functions. I don't like the models with all those tatoos. Why do beautiful women mar their bodies in that way?

I like the fantasy and storylines of Rick's stuff. I generally like his taste in actresses. I particularly like the scifi stories. I get tired of the incessant fake whipping, which can get boring. I don't like the depictions of real pain, even if it is staged. I also miss the innocence and everyday inventiveness of his early 90s material.

My ideal combination (which I haven't found yet) would include beautiful babes, big natural breasts, takedowns and stripping, a storyline, bondage(esp breast bondage), humiliation, spanking, not much torture (tie 'em up, but don't hurt 'em), lots of sensuality, penetration, some femfem. The fantasies would be nonconsensual, but the bound babes would get aroused anyway!

BTW - one of the coolest breath control scenes I've watched was in the first or second ZFX film, one of the ones you can get from B&D Pleasures. It featured, as I recall, Rick's future wife (sorry, her name escapes me!). She was bound in a chair, breathing through a tube with a bag over her head, looking at the camera, appeared to be getting off on the situation. Very nice.

Comments:Fred: You pretty much nailed it right on the head in your second paragraph about Insex. I'm not that crazy about the whole enema thing either. As a matter of fact, and this is something I commented on LONG ago in here, the only scene in 666 that I didn't like was when Rick showed Kimberly Noble getting off the toilet. Believe me when I say the rest scene and the film more than made up for that moment, but it was like, "You can't think of something else for this HOT chick to be doing before she is attacked than whipping her ass after taking a dump?" Not exactly a turn on for me.

I also can't stand it when the chicks are OBVIOUS freaks. Like having Green hair, or tattoos that cover their entire back. If a chick is all freaky like that, she may as well be a 300 pound porker in my book, because it's just not a turn on.

But I will say that I disagree with you on the violence standpoint. As long as it's fantasy, just about anything, and I mean anything is fair game for me, and the more real they can MAKE it look, the better. I'm certainly not saying a little pain is bad, like very tight bindings or extremely uncomfortable positions, but just not real blood or other real excretions. Like I just went and checked out Insex and they have a photo with a chick having nails driven through her breasts into a board, that's just a little to much reality for me.

The only real criteria I have when it comes to fantasy rape tapes are, first, and most important, that the female is attractive, because if I'm not interested in her looks, nothing else matters. A very close second, she MUST be unwilling in what is taking place. After that, I'm a happy fucking camper and it's all good from there on out. Whip'em, beat'em, choke-em, electrocute-em, which is a personal favorite of mine. I think one of the sexiest ZFX scenes is from the second Reporter flick when Monica Moore is chained standing up with a pipe between her legs and they keep shocking the shit out of her. Hell, I think that section of the tape is worn out. And of course fuck the hell out of em in every imaginable oraphace. As long as the chick is hot and extremely unhappy with what is going on, I'm in. She needs to be treated like a vessel that is only good for the attackers enjoyment, whether that be fucking her, or beating the shit out of her. But it does need to be fantasy. As long as it's fantasy I'm only watching a character, like in a movie or a cartoon, and I enjoy it for the escapism that it is. As soon as it becomes real, I start to get a little freaked out.

Comments:I have to agree with the recent comments about Insex. The reason why I have never subscribed is not mainly the cost, because I will pay a lot if I know I'm getting quality. Insex does some of the more creative and elaborate bondage scenarios I've ever seen. My only problems with them would be some of the women mainly, and the fact that the roleplays are consensual. For instance, I like Tyler Scott, because she's cute and she'll submit to all kinds of punishment and let people film her, but when I see her with her tattoo and her studded tongue, something inside me says "Freakgirl". These girls who mark their bodies up, that just doesn't arouse me, it tells me they're into "the scene" and I lose interest immediately. Now not all Insex girls are like that. I haven't seen any of Liz Tyler's Cowgirl stuff for them, and she's attractive enough that I would pay to see her given the Insex treatment. But like Howie and Fred commented, who wants to see freakgirls going through their freaky motions? I have no interest in girls with multiple piercing and tattoos and a ring through her nose, I want a girl next door.

Now I haven't seen any of Insex's newest stuff, so I haven't seen the tit-nailing, pussy-lip sewing or needles stuck under fingernails. I'm all for harsh torture, but to me, if the girl is willingly letting a guy do that to her, it's not torture, it's just mutilation! Now if someone were to grab a girl off the street and torture her against her will, which is the typical ZFX storyline, I would be all for that. Then feel free to torture her any way you see fit. I'm one of the few on this forum who has no problem with showing blood as long as it's realistic in the context of the scene, but others have their limits, as shown by Fred's comments. IMO, ZFX is doing it right, and I much prefer their simulations to Insex's reality.

Comments:A quick question, then a comment - recently in the newsgroups numerous pictures identified as chad have been showing up, they seem to be old HOM stills from magazines and from old super 8mm and regular 8mm movies. Does anyone know what the chad designation stands for, and if these are available on some particular website. A lot of the stills are from the Cole and Whitman series, these were some of the first BDSM pictures I saw, and other than what Rick does, probably still rate as some of the best I have seen, particularily the Erotic Perversion series. Anyway, any information on this would be appreciated. Getting back to the central focus of this forum, ZFX, I first saw them when he was being released through BonVue. The first early years of ZFX - are really my favorite. Not only was there a lot of material released each year, but they seemed to be the mirror image of many of my own fantasies, like Rick was doing what what I was thinking. Alison Parish, Drew, and the others were great, almost like the girl next door, as opposed to the Goth, tatooed types that have been discussed. If there was a golden era it started with Video Pirates and continued with the intro of Penny and Lisa. I've got to admit I miss seeing Drew, who I assume is now Rick's wife, if this is not the case someone enlighten me. Anyhow, the later vids are probably more technically superior, but can never equal, at least in my opinion,the first four of five years that Rick produced.

Comments:the Chad series

Chad is the nick of the guy who did the scans, which come from his amazing collection of HOM mags. They get re-posted by various posters every now and then to the ABPEB (alt.bondage.pictures.erotic.bondage) newsgroup. Being a huge classic HOM fan myself, his series is my favorite.

Insex and ZFX and other

Someone posted some Insex rm movies to ABPEB last month. I downloaded some, but not all, cause I personally found them boring. I put myself in the camp that likes non-consensual stories acted out. But even when I pretended in my head the insex girl was there against her will, I still found it boring. Their stuff just drags for me, minutes of not much happening, at least the ones I've seen. I'm not a big fan of tying up the girl and then just letting the camera roll on that. Do something to her--whip her, slap her, spank her, feel her up, squeeze a breast, penetrate, something! Also, unlike some here, I'm not into the breath bag thing, or pouring wax, but that's just me. I pretty much go along with what Fred said he likes down below, only I differ in that some hurt/pain is ok with me. I don't like torture to the point of agony (even in fantasy), but some rough punishment is a plus in my book. Like Howie, I can tolerate more in fantasy, or in videos where I know it's just acting, than if I think it's happening for real.

I was going to say something about zfx, Dan Hawke and others, but that'll have to wait till later, I'm way too tired! Interesting posts lately.

Comments:I want to contribute to some of these discussions. All opinions are only my own and not meant to insult anyone... Actresses and their appearances/"freakchicks": I like that there's a wide variety of actresses, but I wish it was even wider. (I would LOVE to see a nice brunette with short black hair, but there aren't many actresses with short hair at all. That's why I loved it when PPace got her haircut and went brunette.)... Personally, my only problem with the goth/freak/tattoo chicks is when they're ugly anyway. I like the idea of a real goth chick with makeup and everything put through some strenuous bondage, they really seem to be asking/begging for it to begin with, and I'm not put off by tattoos or piercings, but to tell the truth, I haven't seen very many good looking actresses of this type in videos, and I'd like to see some more on the level of Tina Krause, Debbie Rochon, or Chandra Sweet...

Insex: My reactions to Insex are the same as my reactions to TAG. I may not like what I see, but I'm glad someone's out there doing the work. Insex seems to have some really good looking women, and as I said, tattoos or piercings don't bother me. As far as the rest of it, He's breaking ground and exceeding previous limits, which isn't a bad thing for bondage videos... I figure he's doing what he wants to do, and if he had to eliminate the fingernail/sewing stuff, he probably wouldn't direct at all. It's like how Jay Edwards doesn't use as many cloth gags as opposed to ballgags as I wish he would: the reality of it is that he's doing it they way he wants to, and if he couldn't do it his way he probably wouldn't do it at all, and we'd be missing out on a talent...

Bagging: I've seen very few scenes in videos, and the ones I've seen I haven't liked too much. Really, it's the bag that's the problem. I'd like it to be tight. The woman should be gagged anyway. The bag shouldn't have points on it like at the corners, because they stick out during the scene and look dumb (personal opinion). I liked Lisa's scene in WarPigs2, but I wished she was gagged with something other than stuffing (I hate stuffing on it's own). In any bagging scene, I'd prefer the woman in the story survived... Any bagging fans need to see two mainstream films, DIE WATCHING and PAINT IT BLACK, both suspense films. Good bagging scenes in each, one with the irritating Sally Kellerman... I think that a German producer, INSHADOW.com, might do some bagging. Maybe another poster could tell us more...

This dovetails into B-Productions, my next topic: In their vid SILENT ABDUCTION, the very sexy and very slutty looking Victoria Vega ends up hogtied on a bed with a plastic bag over her head. She stays that way until the end of the scene. I didn't like this scene for three reasons. 1) Victoria didn't panic at all, just kind of whimpered, 2) the bag was sloppy and put on sloppily (and had POINTS) and 3) there was no facial closeup, which you need for any bondage scene no matter what... I also want to mention B productions new vid release, HELPLESS. Many may buy it like I did right off the bat, since it's been a while since their last release. I want to review it for my fellow fans...

1st point of interest, HELPLESS features Liz Tyler, the hot, sexy blonde who's captured our attention with her work with Insex and Dan Hawke. She's hot here too, but wears a bathrobe I'd've preferred to have stayed in the laundry... This video features five women in scenes where they are tied and gagged, then retied and re-gagged a different way. Camera work is shaky, and hair in the face is a problem when the viewer wants to see the gag. The scenes are hastily filmed, and the sound is hazy, with a lot of background noise... Now, none of that is necessarily a bad thing. "Low quality" in a bondage video can actually add to the overall anxious effect, but ZFX does a messy video a lot better...

Onto the five girls. The first, Misty Winters, is a very cute redhead. This is the first I've seen her featured, and I give her a 7 out of 10 for looks. Her bondage is just run of the mill home invasion stuff. The next two are Juliette, a nice brunette, and Ava Monroe, who looks a little like LizT, ehÖ..both of these women are pretty plain, and their bondages are boring. Neither could sell me on a video on their ownÖ..which brings us to the fourth actress, Paitin. Remember that name... Paitin is VERY, VERY hot. (The pictures of her at Bindher.com do not do her justice.) She's a tall, busty brunette with olive skin and big dark eyes. She reminded me of Cindy Ashton or "Seduction Cinema"'s Jade DuBois, if that helps. She is wearing, like, a spandex sports bra and hot pants. Paitin is tough and loud, which I also liked. No fearful shrinking violet, this one...

Now let me say that the bondage here is a tragedy. For a woman this hot to be placed in such weak bondage is almost a crime. In a (dimly lit) room, the guy ties her to a chair and gags her, very poorly, with a scarf that IMMEDIATELY FALLS OUT of her damn mouth. You heard me. Just falls out. She doesn't hold still in the chair long enough to even be seen in bondageÖHer second tie is a naked hogtie on a mattress with a black tape gag. The guy stuffs her mouth with what looks like wadded up toilet paper (does he just NOT WANT her to do another vid? This scene is very short, and facial close-ups are LACKING... Then comes Liz. Yadda, Yadda, bathrobe, tied to a chair. I'm still so pissed about the previous woman that I don't care anymore... If anyone orders this video, I hope they like it better than I did. The only way Bindher can make this up to me is to do another video with Paitin and do it right this time... Remember, all opinions here are my own, and not intended to insult anyone of slam their work.....

Assorted thoughts: Anyone like W.A.V.E?...I think that a German producer, INSHADOW.com, might do some bagging. Maybe another poster could tell us more. All for now.- DHT

alt.binaries.pictures.erotica.bondage (left out the a on erotica before). It's a newsgroup carried by various newsservers, but not all of 'em. Some local ISPs carry it, but the retention and completeness of binary group posts on local ISPs newsservers is pretty pathetic. Newsservers that you can pay for with better binary group retention and completeness include Supernews and Newsguy (and there are others). Supernews is the best I've found, and very fast for cable and DSL. Newguy and Newsguy Extra are not as good (and not as fast) but are OK, and cheaper the Supernews.

To get to a newsgroup, I think you can use your browser, but I don't. I use a newsserver app called YA-Newswatcher but that's mac only. For a PC, I've heard of Agent, I'm sure there are others. You can go to versiontracker.com, click on 'windows' as your operating system, and do a search for 'news'. A lot of PC news apps should appear, and links for getting more info and to DL the shareware and freeware ones.

DHT: Thanks for another informative post, but please try to use the HTML tags between your paragraphs. The first thing I did when I took over this board was to add that message to the "Sign Guestbook" form, but to add extra emphasis, I highlighted it in red tonight so hopefully none of the newbies miss it. It's something everyone eventually learns when you deal with HTML, and it's important because it can make your posts much easier to read.

I appreciate reading the review of Bindher's videos. Actually, I bought Silent Abduction a while back and just recently edited that scene onto one of my highlights tapes. It's not a bad scene, but the flaws with it you mentioned are all valid. I might also add that her captor injects some chloroform into a tube leading to the bag over her head and she actually dies in that scene, which is the only snuff scene I ever saw from his company. The reason I bought it was because of an earlier scene where Victoria gets tied to a chair and tortured with electrical shock to her nipples, which I enjoyed. Bindher is a friend of mine who I've known since the early days of his site, before he ever started his video company. In general his stuff is still very amateurishly filmed, but he usually does a good job on the actual ropework, IMO. Some of his models I like, others I don't, but he's been working with some of the bigger names in the business, so at least he gets women who know how to act. I've bought about a half-dozen of his vids, and they all have some good scenes in them, even if they are all flawed in one way or another.

WAVE Video: Another company with its heart in the right place, but constantly plagued by feeble acting, pedestrian direction and cheesy special effects. I have bought about 20 or so of their tapes, and again, I usually find worthwhile scenes buried in the mediocrity of the production. For a guy who specializes in damsels in distress tapes, you would think he would pay a bit more attention to tying his girls a bit better. Still, he tackles subjects others would shy away from, mixing bondage with snuff themes like hanging, gassing, electrocution, quicksand, strangling, buzzsaws, burning at the stake...practically every death theme you can name, he has done it. A lot of his girls are cute and many perform in the nude, which automatically enhances any scene in my book :)

Comments:I was wondering...anyone here like reading stuff from alt.sex.stories ?? Occasionally someone will post a really good rape/torture story. I was thinking if someone wrote up a story to go with one of the vids, it might be somewhat entertaining. or am I the only one who likes written stories too? I remember a while back, there was this series of stories that was really really good. The women in the story would suffer so many things, they'd willingly torture themselves at their master's command to avoid much worse torture later on if they didn't comply.

Comments:Just dropping a line to let you know that Eyewitness has apparently fixed the glitch in their online ordering system on their site. I ordered two of their three tapes, Deadly Laundry and Guilty, which saved me $10 in shipping by getting them both at the same time. They both look really good! My concern is how well they will pull off the hanging scenes, which can look fakey sometimes and spoil the whole illusion. At least they have a good-looking model. Olivia Simon stars in both and she's a fox. I'll let you know about the vids when I get them, or if you don't want to wait on me, go get 'em yourself! Why should I have all the fun? Website address is above.

I also checked out that Internet Adult Film Database site that zfx'r suggested. That is one seriously messed-up site! Well, maybe not that bad, but there were a lot of errors in it that I caught. It's very incomplete and they have ZFX's Rick Masters and the other adult star Rick Masters as sharing the same credits. They don't have Lisa Kinkaid listed as appearing in Reporter 2: Gangstarr. There are incorrect reviews of Gangland 3 and 4, listing them as ZFX tapes, but both reviews are of hardcore sex tapes. And this is just from a quick glance at the site. It's a potentially very useful website, but it needs a lot of work to be really comprehensive, especially on ZFX videos.

Comments:I know everyone has discussed their favorite actress and or video from ZFX, how about favorite series? Sounded like an interesting idea when I first thought about it, then realized so many of Rick's movies had a least two parts. So how about two lists, favorite series of Two Part and then a favorite series of 3 Parts or more. List your top five and any particular reason.

My own personal favorites:3 parts or more: 1) Night Prowler - primarily because it covered a large part of ZFX history from the early days to his first trips to Minnesota - the scenes with Candy Licks, the full suspension and the wax scenes are some of my personal favorites (a lot of this was almost duplication of Video Pirates - which I leave off my list because the only parts I really liked were the scenes with Candy and Kelly in the last two segments.

2) South of the Border - shows some of Ricks best later work, how can you not like something that has Lisa, Penny and Monica Moore, reminded me of the old HOM Trapped videos where the "students" are taken hostage in a South American country.

3) Guinea Pig series, here again because it spanned a good deal of ZFX history, although I thought the last installment was the worst of the bunch - the last was notable mainly because it was the last time you saw Tabitha before her enhancement - liked her much better in the before mode.

4) Gangland, another good series although Kerri Downs and Darby Fox are not among my favorite ZFX actresses, it did have Chandra in the later installments, one of her first I think, and I believe it was the last time we got to see Drew - and it was a great final for her, she really looked great.

5) I don't really have a fifth, lump everything else here except War Pigs, my least favorite series, I'm sorry, women in combat boots just don't do a whole lot for me.

As for the 2 parters, 1)666 and Underland - I put them together because they are a lot alike, same actresses, a lot of similiar scenes - and both the actresses and the scenes are fantastic

2) Subject 9 with Penelope Pace, might have been the first full suspension Rick did, and if it wasn't Penny's first set of videos it was darn close, the beginning of a ZFX legend

3) VooDoo Dolls - two tapes of nothing but Lisa - how can anyone go wrong

4) The Reporter with Monica Moore - another ZFX legend although she wasn't around very long

5) Guilty with Penelope Pace - another opportunity to show how amazingly limber this young woman is - especially during the rape scene. The only bad part about compiling this listing is reminding me of the "good old days" when Rick was realy prolific - I for one would be thrilled to get some less techical and complex videos, and more volume, like in those early years of the 90's.

Final note, do we have any word yet on when the ZFX site update will be done -on second thought, someone just post when they know it has happened - Rick's deadlines are no where near as reliable as the content of his movies.

Comments:Falstaff: Great topic, and a great list. I'm in agreement with almost all your points (not all). Here is my list, in no particular order.


1) The Reporter and Gangstarr: Monica Moore at her sexy best, screaming her fool head off, with Brian Dunhill as her chief interrogator. Does life get any better?

2) Miss Ballista 1 and 2: This will apply as long as Part 3 is still on hold. Master's bondage comic book super-heroine has so far produced a boatload of great scenes, and both parts have been ambitious and totally entertaining.

3) Mincemeat Pie and Doer: Penelope Pace is terrorized by a group of good ol' boy rednecks and their girlfriend Chandra Sweet. Sample dialogue: We're gonna play a little game here. It's a fun game. It's called "Whip The Bitch!" Some of Penelope's best work, too.

4) Voodoo Dolls 1 and 2: Total agreement here. Two excellent sci-fi bondage shows with Lisa as the sole victim, and that's good enough for me.

5) 666 and 666: Mark of the Beast: Devilish goings-on in two tapes where bondage, torture and witchery all blend together into a fine production with a strong storyline to boot.


1) Video Pirates: I personally loved this series, because I thought the scenes with Rick and Chandra torturing Melisa Pope, which stretched out over parts 2-5, was one of ZFX's best-ever segments. Melisa wasn't the greatest-looking girl ZFX ever worked with, but I thought her performance was natural and entirely convincing, and if Rick had edited all of her segments together into one long single tape, it would make my top five of all time. That series was also great because of Kelly and Kerri Downs and Candi's contributions, too. All in all, I thought it worked well from beginning to end, although the first of the series featuring Tabitha Jordan was not up to the rest of what followed.

2) Night Prowler: Travis Lee as Otis the night prowler, taking out his sick rage against a bevy of babes who had wronged him. All are worthwhile, and my favorite is Part 2 with the bondage rape of Holly Weston. An excellent series.

3) Guinea Pigs: This was a very successful series, because you could always count on Rick to come up with something unique to do with his bound victims. The array of babes that appeared in this series included Victoria Vixxen, Alison Parish, Holly Weston, and Chandra in the finale of the series, which I agree wasn't as strong as the others, but all are worthwhile.

4) Gangland: The final tape was a disappointment, but the first two with Kerri Downs and Nick Long are classics, and Chandra's scenes in Part 4 gave the series an added boost when it was starting to slip.

5) South of the Border: This series has really developed into my current favorite, for the same reasons you mentioned. As much as I miss Monica Moore's great sufferings in the first two, the next three have provided some memorable scenes with some other beautiful actresses, highlighted by Lisa Kinkaid's stellar turn in Part 4. I hope we'll get to see a Part 6 of this before the year is out, but it's not a sure thing.

Remember when Rick used to release several vids at one time? It was not unheard of to get 15-20 new tapes a year. He used to release at least one series of 5 new ones at a time. That ended last year when we only got three, and we're still awaiting his first one of the year, and it's April already. I know it takes longer to make them now, plus there's the website updates and streaming video and all to distract him from making the actual shows. Still, like you, I clamor for the older, more prolific days from ZFX.

Comments:I wish someone would put up better stills from some of these ZFX movies. I thought about getting the Reporter, but I can't find decent stills from it. All i've seen are tiny thumbnails. After I saw the closeup pics of Liz, I immediately wanted to get lashing liz. So I think if rick put up freely available stills he'd get more sales. at least from me. I've been to rick's web site and I don't want to sign up for that adult check thing. its annoying.

Comments:a couple days ago, I posted a review of Bindher's new release, HELPLESS, with Liz T and others. I gave it a pretty bad review, though, and I want to balance that out by recommending the two best vids of Bindhers out of the 8 or so I've seen.

1> BETRAYED INTO BONDAGE is a fantastic video, well worth the money. It features Natalie Ashe, an unusual looking but hot blonde or fake blonde in leotards, put into about three different tie ups.

The next woman is Katie Jordan, a hot brunette with short hair. She is surprised in her bedroom and put through about 5 tie-ups.

the third and last woman on the tape is Jewel, a neat little blonde who looks a little like both Drew Barrymore and Gillian Anderson. Jewel plays a jogging lawyer who is abducted by a disgruntled opponent, and taken home for about three lengthy tie-ups and left spreadeagled to a bed with a lit stick of dynamite taped between her legs.

Jewel, who is featured in several bindher videos, gets her best treatment in this one. HELD is another good Jewel/Bindher video.

The second Bindher video I'd recommend is FORCED OVERTIME, which features Tina Krause/Mia Copa and Natalie Ashe, and a second story with Tasha Capri.

Tina Krause is a beautiful actress with long black hair that probably all posters on this board are familiar with from her work with W.A.V.E. and seduction cinema. Natalie Ashe is the long haired blonde from BETRAYED I mentioned earlier, and she has a great onscreen gagging scene toward the end of the first story. Tasha Capri is a sexy Latina who is tied about four times and stripped at her office after hours.


South of the Border 1&2: though this series has progressed to 5, I consider 1&2 a separate series due to the time between 2&3 and that there is a completely different cast and storyline in 3-5.

this series features Penelope Pace, looking dynamite and suffering tremendously. I love her hair in this set.

Though I like Monica Moore, she doesn't sell a video for me, and I'd've preferred Lisa in her role, but had that been the case I'd've probably died either from pleasure overload or just waiting for the tapes to come in the mail.

GUILTY 1&2 is the ultimate Penelope Pace video in my opinion, though one cloth gag would've been nice, as would a blindfold for her in the van. The Lisa scenes in 2 are negligible, but in one she is very sexy. The microphome bit-gag is something new.

WAR PIGS 3&4, again a two parter on their own, are fun, with Lisa putting Cinsy MacCready through some dangerous looking tie-ups. Brigitte Bayone does absolutely nothing for me, though. SERIES TAPES:

I too like the Video Pirates scenes with Chandra, Rick, and the spooky girl, because they were very scary. The girl was good at acting scared, and Chandra is just a psychotic freak who I love.

Even so, I think the best series has to be BLUNT TRAUMA, with PPACE, Lisa, and another insane Chandra Sweet.

"That-THAT'S what I think!" to quote Andrew Dice Clay, as I say something that occurred to me a while ago, is how wonderful REPORTER/GANGSTARR would've been with Penelope instead of Monica Moore, or Penelope and Lisa as a double set of reporter victims. Oh well, one can't have everything all the time. All for now.

Since good pics are not available, you'll just have to take my word for it: GO GET THAT REPORTER!!!! It's one of the best tapes back from the days ZFX really produced plenty of good stuff. And while you're at it, why not go for Gangstarr (reporter part 2) too?? THAT tape even has sweet, cute Lisa.

Comments:Series faves:

The SOB's. I agree, they split between 1-2 and 3-5. Its the latter ones that rate it high for me. Lisa bullwhipped or upside down head in a bucket of water, Kelly McKay's tits bouncing slow-mo on impact- what's not to love?

The Blunt Trauma's- P. Pace's finest hour. A long slow breaking and then there is the forced feeding scene which rates in my top ten.

The Voodoo Dolls- Lisa and nothing but. And the bear scene is hillarious.

The G-Pigs- especially the Holly Weston episodes, although V lost it for me.

The Ballistas: My Gawd III looks good!

Damien- Ive got to disagree about ZFX being past its prime. I've been wide-eyed glued to them since the Allison Parrish days, and the best ones (in my opinion) tend to be within the last ten to fifteen films. Sure, I would like to see more, and streaming might be taking up energy that could be put into films, but I think Rick's just hitting his stride.

An earlier post was looking for suspension (with feet on the ground scenes) and mentioned the posibility of Vaccum. If you have not seen it check it out. I normally like a full stripping, but the scene with Lisa with her arms bound above her head, and her panties clinging to her thighs for a long time after being pulled beneath her crotch and ass is... priceless.

Lisa kneeling, blindfolded collared, gged, and masturbating herself? PPace ballgagged, buttplugged, and doing Lisa with a strap on??????? Can't be beat, guys!

Comments:It's probably been 2 years since I last posted here, but I have enjoyed my continous lurking. Congrats to all concerned.

Best short series to me is Cheerleaders of Perilous U, but only b/c Part 2:Violation of Vicki Fixx, is one of my all-time favorites. Basically, they inflicted every torment imaginable on Penelope. It would hold a comfortable lead over 2nd placer, the 'Reporter' series. Worst 2-part series might be Incubus. Boy, part 2 of that series was bad. Was there ever a sequel to "Supermax"?

Best long series is SOB, by a mile. One was a little too tame. Two was saved by Monica. But the remaining three stand out on their own. Is there any other ZFX series that actually got better as the series progressed? This might be the only one. Not surprised that no one has voted for "Pain Principle: Whiplash Experiments". That started out mediocre, and went downhill.

Comments:Series: Blunt Trauma, and Ballista, my faves

Paulus: Yes, I like bondage stories, too. I think I remember the series you referred to.

My thread: Just one response. Did it get buried, or was it unworthy? I'll ask it again more briefly - does anyone have a favorite place/context etc. which prompts ZFX fantasies to arise? As I said, for me it is mostly the gym and watching the hotties on the treadmills, but there are certainly other situations which cause me to think about ZFX.

New thread, related to Paulus's: I never realized how sexy just bondage "talk" could be, until I saw the vid, "Straight to the Ass" #1, by Vince Voyeur's new company Redlight. He used to be with Anabolic, and does some rough, and kinky "straight" sex films (lots of anal, "forced" deep throating, swallowing, blindfolding, choking, etc.) There's an anal sex scene in STTA#1 with Jenna Haze, which, while filled with hard anal pounding, is actually milder than the other scenes in the vid, in the sense that the filming is IMO tastefully done, without gapes or other things your significant other might find disturbing. A nice blending of hardcore and tastefulness, IMO.

But the sexiest thing about the scene is actually the short interview with Ms. Haze beforehand, where she reveals that at 17 years of age she was dating a 30 year old guy who taught her a lot about sex, including one time tying her face down to a futon, blindfolding and gagging her, and then fucking the hell out of her ass. Oh man, can't you just visualize it? Which one of us would not have wanted to be in that dude's shoes, dominating so completely this 17-year old cutie? (BTW, 17 is legal in my state, I assume it is in all of the states).

I just found her description to be incredibly erotic. I know many on this board are not as into willing bondage as I am, but still, I think it would be really sexy if Rick could integrate some of these verbal pyrotechnics in one of his flix. Maybe Lisa could be visiting her teacher, or a psychologist or something, recounting the past bondage experiences she had, and then the guy gets turned on and takes her down ZFX-style

. So, in line with Paulus's question about BDSM stories, i.e. text, is anyone else turned on by BDSM verbalisms? Did anyone see the scene I am talking about?

BTW, I have seen stills on the 'Net from Jenna Haze's scene in Whack Attack 12, where she keeps her arms clasped behind her as though bound while giving head on her knees, and then is fucked from behind (in the ass? don't know) while lying face down and her arms are held behind her. Sort of re-enacting the real-life scene she described with the 30 year old guy. I will definitely be checking out WA12. Finally, note also that the stills on the net don't do this cutie justice - on tape, she is hot. Rick, maybe you could look her up, see if she'd be interested in one of your films (smile)...

Geez, a lot of them, IMO. Like I mentioned earlier, the first Video Pirates wasn't quite as good as the ones that followed, but starting with Part 2, that series really took off. I thought all the sequels to Blunt Trauma were better than the original. The Tool Box Abductions was decent, but Part 2 is a bonafide classic, full of great scenes. The Reporter with Monica Moore started off well, but the sequel, Gangstarr, is one of the best ZFX ever put out. The first of the sci-fi trilogy that began with Machine Head was just so-so. Both sequels were better. And as zee-ef-ex pointed out, Ballista 2 was even better than the excellent first chapter.

Why is this? My guess is that it's because the first tape sets up the plot, so more time is devoted to telling the story than to the actual tortures. Once part 2 begins, he can go straight forward with stuff we all like to see, and have time for more creative setpieces. Just a theory, anyone have any opinions?

Comments:This is going back to the discussions of the “Eyewitness” site. They have a Yahoo group that has additional pics that you may find interesting to check out. Link listed above.

Speaking of links, I think it’s about time for everyone to share theirs again. Any newfound sites that were not shared the first go round? Any buried treasures?

Recent threads~ zee-ef-ex’s query as to where one’s fantasies run wild...anywhere, everywhere. Probably most when I’m shopping or driving and see some scantily clad sweetie out for a walk.

Favorite series~I have different things that draw me to ZFX vids, so I’d have to say I don’t have any favorite series. The “War Pigs” series could have been greatÖbut I don’t find combat boots particularly attractive. I loved “Virtual Violence” but didn’t care for the original “Phantacide Peepshow”. “Liza Cord” had potential to be a great seriesÖif there would have been a part two. About the closes one I could say would be the SOB series. Hot scenes, hot women!

Question for Rick, using “Liza Cord” as an example for one with no follow up. When he ends his videos “to be continued”, does he have an idea already in mind for the sequel? Or does he state “to be continued” and fill in the details as the time comes? Minimal footage shot for the sequel?, or a lot of footage shot and just canned for whatever reason? Inquiring minds want to know (I WANT SOME MORE AMY FOOTAGE!!! (To be read in a blood curdling cry of agony and despair)).

Comments:On the Eyewitness subject. AvF, thanks for posting the link. I was actually already a member, but for some reason when the main site went down I thought the yahoo club also went away. They have posted some "REALLY" great pictures in there that weren't there before. I wish I knew what tape the model from the three pictures titled bran1b.jpg, bran2.jpg, and especially bran3.jpg were from. That third one is fucking awesome! All three are in the "Files" section in the "mixed" folder. Go check-em out if you haven't. Luscious stuff.

If I were to have a single grip about Eyewitness so far, it would be one that is probably obvious to many of you in here. Simply put, "WHAT'S WITH ALL THE FUCKING CLOTHES!!" I realize that they need to have something on them for the hanging scenes because they probably have some elaborate harness on the chicks under there clothes to achieve the realistic illusion, but come on already. These models at eyewitness are by far some of the hottest chicks I've ever seen doing this type of stuff, aside from the Fantom Killer movies, and some of the ZFX models. To not get them completely naked so we can drink in there gorgeous bodies while we watch them suffer is something I feel I would find VERY annoying if I were to fork out the 60 plus dollars for a tape. The clothes are good for a while, but you have to strip them eventually. That's like winning $1,000,000.00 in the lottery and only taking half of it and letting the rest just go to waist.

Ralphus, I am eagerly awaiting your reviews of these flicks. Please let us know if we ever get the opportunity to see the models, especially Olivia completely naked. Who knows, maybe the tapes are so well made, and so hot that the cloths wont matter, but for some reason, I doubt it.

If you have paid any attention to my postings throughout the years you'd know I have a very (VERY!)strong preference for total nudity and the actresses be barefoot. You would think that "Eyewitness" wouldn't interest me for this reason. To the contary. The women are soo hot (especially Olivia!), the locals of their shoots (from the stills I've seen), tight ropework, torture scenarios (electro, zip-ty gags, baggings, pliers, etc.), all these elements combined has got me very interested and excited about thier work. I look forward to see how they progress. Maybe with some feedback to the forum at their site and at the Yahoo club, they might take in consideration a few changes.

Comments:Guys, you might be waiting to hear my review of the Eyewitness tapes. I saw my first Eyewitness vid, Deadly Laundry, yesterday. And...it's pretty damn good. I was enthralled from beginning to end. The production values are high, meaning it was well-filmed with attention to detail: lots of close ups and a variety of angles. This was actually directed, like a real movie. These guys know what they're doing. The actress is not only beautiful but gives a convincing performance. Do we see Olivia completely naked? Well, not technically, but we see her bare tits and her pussy. I saw enough to please me. The lack of total nudity didn't bother me as much as the fact that after cutting through her panty hose to expose her pussy, neither of those maniacs bothered to rape her! I mean, you have a beautiful girl all tied up like that and you decide to kill her instead of using her one last time? Well, I guess they are maniacs, and stupid ones at that!

Only other (minor) criticism of the tape? It tends to be a bit padded, which is not always a bad thing, but I might have chopped about 15 minutes from the final product. The hanging at the end seems to go on a little long...you wouldn't think she's still be squirming after 10 minutes, but she still was. The hanging illusion was credible. One could guess how they did it, but it was still about as good as I've seen, considering that such a thing can look only so realistic.

I was very impressed, and I still have Guilty to watch, with the same victim also tied to a chair and shocked in the tits. Life is good! My grade for Deadly Laundry: A-

Ballista 3

The stills look great. Maybe one day we'll have the whole series on a double-sided DVD with a Director's Commentary track and Easter Eggs.


I can spend a day talking about the sloppy editing, bad sound quality, and frequent tedium of the scenes. I'm not into the bloody stuff and the sewing, either. Their bondage enema scenes don't bother me: I think it's some of the most potent stuff one can do in B&D. Humiliation, restraints, and dominance all wrapped up in one. Rick has used it to lesser effect in his vids, mostly because it's faked I suppose. Keep trying Rick.

Comments:Once again, I'll try and take advantage of some of the expertise available in this great forum. I was never one to spend a lot of time looking at the newsgroups but over the last few weeks thru a couple of web sites that post them I have got a bit of nostalgia going with the Chad series, a lot of the old HOM and Cole and Whitman stuff, my question, I have probably 60 to 70 old (70's and 80's) 8mm and super 8mm reels sitting in a box, mainly because I have been unable to find any old projectors that are still in working condition - I know I can have the movies converted to VHS, but would appreciate some suggestions on who might be best qualified to do this, and what the cost might be. I really don't want to take them to just some local guy that does old "family" home movies. Is there any sort of a company anywhere that specializes in converting old X rated stuff?

One other question, a couple of years ago I obtained a copy of Erotic Perversion #1, even without any sound and despite its overall poor tape quality, it is quite a video. Is this series or any of the older HOM stuff still available in anything that approaches a quality reproduction? Final question, (I promise) are Cole and Whitman still around, and is there any possibility HOM would have some of the old vintage stuff archived? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks Falstaff

I have a question, sort of a poll, and maybe the answers will help Rick decide the direction to take some of his movies - who knows? (For that matter, Rick, feel free to chime in with your preferences).

The question: Do you ZFX fans enjoy equally "extreme" scenes in your real life or in your non-ZFX porn? I mean, do your tastes run to vanilla sex, or do you like the gonzo direction which non-BDSM porn, for example, has gone recently?

My guess is that most fans of BDSM will also be fans of other types of domination or humiliation, etc. in non-BDSM real life or porn. It holds true for me. I like all that ass-to-mouth, the choking, blindfolding, cumming on faces, etc., the more extreme the better. Others?

There's also a small fan site at www.houseofmilan.com. Some info there.

Have a few HOM loops I've transfered myself. Have no idea where I'd go if I had to do it elsewhere. If you find something out, let us know. You could try ebay for projectors.

Lyndon, who bought out HOM, does have a bunch transfered (the Bondage Classic videos and DVDs) as Sprintus said. The quality ranges from ok to pretty bad transfers; the earlier numbers being better than the later numbers, I forget where the break happens. Also they sped up the projector to match 8mm film frame rate to that of video, to prevent scanlines or flickering I think (not sure really why).

After leaving HOM, the Cole and Whitman team with Behr started California Star, and did a bunch of videos there before retiring for good. By the descriptions for the Cole Whitman tapes at straythoughts, it seems those come from Cal Star's Punished series.

It might be a "Galaxy of terror" fix one of these days soon, if ya know what I mean.

Comments:Thanks to all those who responded on my Chad/HOM question - checking ebay for a projector is a great idea, sometimes the most obvious thing is the one you never think of. Leaving Cole and Whitman behind for the moment and returning to Rick and ideas for future efforts (assuming there will be some before 2010), I know everyone has their own preferences and you can not please everyone, but it might be interesting to get a general summary of favorite activities and dislikes, I know this has been done before and probably exists somewhere is the Archives, but it might be nice to update. My own personal preferences:

1)More outdoor shooting, something that really hasn't been done lately, you have to go back to some of the older ZFX with Victoria and Allison.

2)The early struggling as the "victim is subdued and stripped. I agree with Rick not wasting a lot of valuable time actually showing the tying - but I enjoy watching the clothes being cut, ripped off, etc.

3)The strangulation scenes, the more drawn out the better

4)The fondling of the temporarily unconscious victim and or removal of her clothing

5)Bare feet (or heels if you must) - lose the boots and tennis shoes - what a waste.

6)The moaning - a good moaner is worth a thousand words

7)Watching the victims lapse into temporary unconsciousness due to their torture - only don't cut away quite so quickly - its a moment to savor

8)The kidnapping or capturing sequences

9)The suspensions

10)Liberal use of candles and dripping wax - the Candy Licks sequences in Video Pirates and Night Prowler are all time favorites

11)Any themes that use occult backgrounds

12)Penetration shots, which are becoming more frequent and bolder than in the early years

As far as dislikes: 1)As previously states boots and tennis shoes and socks, bare feet are so much more sensual

2)The animation sequences, stick to the real people

3)The sci-fi oriented vids-I'd rather see the victim dealing with a real person instead of a demonic plant

4)Any pissing or scat scenes - not my idea of erotic or sensual

5)Watching a dildo stuffed into a girl's mouth - I can think of better places to put it

When it comes to ZFX my likes far outnumber my dislikes, Rick has done a great job, his movies keep getting technically beter and better produced, it's just I like the content of some of the older ones better. One nice thing about Lisa being around for such a long time, it has been a pleasure to watch her evolve, she handles a lot more torment now than when she started and just keeps getting better and better at doing it - she suffering so wonderfully.

Comments:Falstaff~ Sequencial preferences...very good, I like! It's kinda difficult to put them in order since a lot of times I envision these elements in combination. The top five are just about in equal value but will number them anyway.

1) Baggings~Nothing compares to a long drawn out reactions in the midst of a panic. Makes for great struggling scenes.

2) Stranglings~For similar reasons.

3)Hanging upside down by the ankles with the hands tied behind the back totally nude (and barefoot...Yes, lose the boots and tennies). Hanging upside down is even better in combination with a bagging or dunking! 4) Forced oral with oral/facial climax (Bagging used to coerce a blowjog).

5)Hogties~Tight and a perfect way to show a pair of pretty feet (With bagging, all the better....you noticing a theme here).

6 through....General tight ties, rough handling, victim getting eaten (pussy), multiple assailants on one victim (5+ attackers. 5 facials, 5...), etc.


1) Unattractive actresses~No matter how good an actress she is, it won't make the video watchable.

2) Cheesy, poor acting.~Over done/under done reactions.

3) Blood~actually not really all that bad if done in small amounts as torture. Example, paper-thin cuts across the breasts that don't draw all that much blood.

4)Scat/Golden~Actually this should have been my number one turn off.

5) Shoes/boots.

6) Making a victim dress in another outfit after she's already been stripped from the initial assault.

7 though....Stupid dialog. Example from a simulated scene in an adult movie, "Go ahead and stick it in the back". "No thanks, I don't like going the dirt route". If it's simulated, why bring it up in the dialog at all? Stupid. Overly long scenes that could have had better effect if not drawn out so long. Wasting a cum shot on the ass or stomach (save 'em for the face!). Etc.

Well, that's my list.

Comments:Fred: I'm sure Iago will have his two cents to add to your question, but I have been a member of Superheroine Central (SHC) since about a month after it started, and let me tell you it just keeps getting better and better. I'm actually a member of all three of DanO's sites. SHC, Catfight Central (CC), and the new Spacebabes (SB), and I will without hesitation join any web site he creates, because the guy is incredibly fucking talented. Iago is correct in saying that SB isn't quite as good as the other two yet, but it's gaining momentum every week. The crème de la crème of the sites is without a doubt DanO's artwork. Specifically the Poll Driven Comics (PDC) at both SHC and CC. I don't think he is going to do one for SB because he barely has the time to keep up with them on the other two. But let me tell you that if you think the pictures he offers in the free section are even the LEAST bit tempting, what you find on the inside is 1000 times better. He consistently comes up with more brutal ways to destroy, bring back, and destroy again all the incredibly gorgeous characters he's created in his stories, and I do me BRUTAL. He even has a lite and extreme version for each PDC. The late version with out blood for people like AvF, and an extreme version with tons of goo and blood, for the really twisted bastards like me. Don't worry AvF, I think you're twisted to. (^_^)

Even the live sections of the sites are REALLY good now. In the beginning I thought the live action stuff he did was just to silly to watch. I even told him so, but within about the last year he has expanded his business and started hiring some drop dead gorgeous models. I'm talking about some seriously flawless chicks. And he gets almost as rough in his live action stuff as he does in his comics, and that's saying a lot. Everything from beating to rapes, and in the end he usually provides two endings. One where the Superheroine will win, which I always hate : ) , and one where she gets destroyed. Usually in a beautiful bloody naked mess. He pull it all off very well as Iago said. Some of the monsters are a little cheesy looking, but who give a rats ass when its beating and raping the hell out of some hot, big titted model. WHOOO HAAAA! Keep in mind that this is ALL fantasy stuff with the live action sections. So when I say beating and raping, it's all simulated. This isn't Insex.

And don't forget that there are also many other great artists who are regular contributors to the site such as Mr. X, Nightwing316, and others I can't think of right now. Basically if you're looking for a recommendation from another pervert with really high standards for his porn, I can tell you without hesitation to give the site a try. You won't regret it.

Keep in mind that he rotates everything on a two month schedule on the inside. Meaning he has the updates set up from Week 1 through Week 8, and once he works his way back around to week 1 everything from week one is gone from the site forever, and so forth for each consecutive week as he moves along. If you want to see all the past material you have to buy his compilation CD's that are REALLY expensive. I think there somewhere between $40 and $50 a piece. So it really pays to be a member as he goes along and just collect the stuff for yourself. I can tell you without a doubt that I haven't regretted one cent I've spent on my memberships at any of his site. The guy really is a creative genius when it comes to his art and now even his live action stuff, and I truly mean that.

And this last note will be very cryptic to everyone in here but one, and that person will know what I'm talking about. Yes, this is going to be one of them. (^_^)

Comments:Another excellent topic, Falstaff. Here's my take on likes and dislikes for ZFX tapes:


Realistic kidnapping, captures. Key word here is realistic. Let the victim try to run away or try to fight back. Let her struggle, but ultimately lose. A believable takedown sets up the story. Without it, something is lacking.

Threatening, taunting banter from the villain. He shouldn't be the main focus of the scene, but we should know he is clearly enjoying what he is doing to the poor victim. This is fun! You're suffering and I'm having fun! This enhances the whole experience and often can make a good scene into a great one. Best examples of a good villain: Brian Dunhill, Rick Masters, Joseph Marx.

Crying, whimpering, moaning, begging, painful screaming from the victim. Make us believe you are really scared, or really in agony, and we'll buy the scene every time.

Suspension: I like the idea of hanging a girl up like a side of beef, where she can only hang helplessly and painfully by her wrists while the villain goes to work on her, whipping her, penetrating her, whatever he wants. Even better: Upside down suspension, even more vulnerable and helpless, and easier to use her mouth for oral sex.

Electric shock: I love seeing the girls get zapped in their private parts, tits, ass, pussy. ZFX has pretty much perfected this scene over the years.

Multiple clothespins to the breasts, pussy and other parts of the body. Decorating a victim's body with painful marks and leaving her to suffer is a great turn-on. Likewise with candle wax. Cover her from head to toe!

Cumming and yes, even pissing on a bound girl's face. You just raped her, what could be more humiliating than to use her face as a target afterward? It's degrading, and shows her that she is only there for your pleasure.


Tattoos, piercings, ugly women. As mentioned before, it's the quality of the girl that makes the movie work for me. It all starts with the casting. This is usually not a problem with ZFX girls. I think Rick likes the same aspects that I do :)

Girl/girl scenes. Just like I don't want freakgirls, I don't want lesbians, either. BORING!

Girls in the roles as villains. There are a few exceptions, but on the whole, a girl can't dish it out as well as a guy can. Dominant women? The whole thing smacks of fakiness. Now if you have someone like Chandra Sweet as the girlfriend of one of the villains cheering the men on, that's totally different.

Unrealistic bondage/ unbelievable torture or rape sequences. Scenes that are badly acted, or clearly simulated and look that way. Ruins the whole mood and believability of the illusion.

Sci-fi or fantasy sequences (aka the weird shit). Amorous teddy bears, libidinous spiders, sex-warped flowers that sprout phallic tentacles. Okay, I know it's creative and I admire the effort it takes to pull off the illusion. I just don't get turned on by it.

Forcing the girl to suck off a rubber dildo. I know some love it, and Rick uses it in practically every tape. I just think it's a waste of time. If you're going to use her mouth, make her suck your own cock.

I'm sure there are others I'll think of later, but I'll give someone else a chance. Gentlemen, let's hear your opinions!

Comments:Fred, I'm not sure, since I don't go what the SHC folks call the "freeloader" area anymore. What sort of explicit? If you mean do we see real penetration, then no. Nudity, yes. Violence, it's campy, but yes. Rape, well, that's a constant thread across all their stuff. There's also some light bondage, but nothing great. No whipping or ZFX-style torture. Basically I like it b/c the superheroine/sci-fi hottie theme is one of my bags, baby. I would like to see them go a bit more graphic, but I'm not sure where they are looking to go right now with this. DanO can suddenly turn up the heat a big notch with a new video series, then not raise the intensity again for another series or two. Lately, though, the stuff has been pretty good, I think. I also like the guest artists. Some, like Danny Ryan, are really something to see. DanO himself does a poll-driven comic that looks great, too.

Name: Iago
Comments:Falstaff, I like the topic. Here's what I take away:


Psychological torture. Have the villain work at breaking the victim throughout the movie. He wants to break her mind, so he uses his own mind as well as the whip. Alien Probe was great for this.

Fondling, sexual arousal. Okay, it's not very realistic, but the notion of a woman being forced into pleasure against her will is pretty hot. Rick has done this in a number of ways, from the woman just giving in, like Forced Entry, to various drugs (Guinea Pigs, etc.). I think it'd be cool if we saw her again after the drug had worn off, realizing in horror that she is about to be turned into some loveslave for sale, unless maybe she can beg her way out of it...

Stripping/costumes-Have the girl start off looking sexy or even trashy. We know she's gonna lose the clothes soon, but let's enjoy them for a while first. Also, when she does lose them, have the villain either trash the clothing piece by piece, or be really humiliating and make the woman remove them herself (kind of like in 666). There are lots of ZFX movies, like the Plant or ballista, where we see this.

Supernatural or sci-fi themes. Really, anyone can make a slasher movie. It takes a lot more work (which Rick probably figures no one notices) to do sci-fi or supernatural angles in movies. I like the extra effects and atmosphere that this brings. Rick has done it well in a bunch of movies, most recently with the Ballista series.

Hottie women. Ralphus has a point that can't be argued here. No one wants to see an ugly woman. I don't think this is a big issue for Rick these days. I'm not a big Bridgette fan, but like the other recent models he's used.

Sex. Rick is almost unique in that he has a lot of sexual content in his evil bondage videos. Most of this stuff is completely lame in other vids. There's still no actual sex with Rick's flix, but that's okay, really. Rick's getting better at simulating it all the time.

Imagination. While a lot of ZFX flicks may follow similar themes, Rick shows a great deal of imagination and creativity in his work. This stretches from the vids to his Poser work (I like the FIS series, too).

Okay, so I'm a ZFX whore. Here's the...


Slow releases. Since 2000 Rick has really slowed down the new fuel for our fetishes. That's a bummer.

A bit dark. It seems to me that some ZFX vids are a bit dark-looking. Ordinarily this goes with the theme, but in 666 there were a few scenes where I thought it was too dark to really see what was going on.

Voice-overs. Rick uses a lot of voice-changing gimmicks in his vids. While this is usually okay, I can hardly ever really understand what any "demonic" entity is really saying. It's usually not really central to the action, but still.

Name: Falstaff
Comments:Interesting to see what everyone likes about ZFX - obviously Rick is, and has been doing a lot of things right over the years. The sexual arousal theme that is mentioned is really an underlying theme is almost all his videos and I agree it is really hot. As for the electrical torture, sometimes it is really great, other times really boring, I think it really gets down to the model that is doing it. Lisa is great, you'd think she was really getting zapped, and the electrical torture in Underland (or maybe it was 666, without checking it out I get some of their scenes confused), was great also. However, in Dark Offering, it was a total waste of time, the actress never sold it.

Regarding the actresses themselves, I also agree, the prettier the better, with possibly one exception. Marilyn Malone, in the Worm, is not in the same class as Lisa, Penny, or Monica, but she really sells her performance, it is one of my favorite of all the ZFX tapes - great torture, great rape scene, great asphyixation (sp?) scene at the end and the most limber model (including Penny) that ZFX ever used. With the possible exception of some of the old Cole and Whitman movies that have been discussed - no one else really comes close to what Rick does. Hint: Rick, do it more often.

One more note - a model I really liked was Sandra Chase, she rarely gets mentioned, but I thought she was really great in Jennifer's Nightmares, Ms. Cox and Trojan Horse. In Trojan Horse, for the climax it looks as if ZFX did their first snuff scene, the villain suffocates with a plastic bag and leaves her for dead. However, she finally regains consciousness and does the patented ZFX heroine escape. Anyhow, reading others preferences and dislikes rekindles many temporarily forgotten pleasurable memories from the ZFX vaults.

One last note, since this forum is basically about Rick and ZFX, would it be possible to collect all his entries in one place in the Archives, also those of Mad Dog, since he was a player in many of the movies - it is always interesting to get their first hand impressions - if they could be grouped together it would save a lot of scanning - I don't know if this is practical or possible.

I hoped these sites would have more sexuality and bondage, and less gore & blood. Call me squeamish!

Comments:Hello to all!

Wow, things have really livened up as of late! Just letting you know that the Ballista 3 DVDs have been released to the distributor....finally. VHS and DVD should be on the street or available through various retailers within a week or so depending on your location. Phallicide and Dark Offering will also be re-released on DVD soon. Working on the next show already, the theme is basically a very hot construction forewoman who runs afoul of a couple sadistic crew members at the job site. This is a much simpler movie than Ballista 3 and should be out relatively quickly, but I'm not gonna even venture a guess yet. As far as the website, STILL working on it, or various web designers are, but most of it is done or very close. Anyway, I'll let you know when I know for sure when I'm sure...

Took a peek at the Eyewitness site. Looked like some very interesting stuff. I didnt buy anything(I just might though), but judging from the picts, the chicks looked hot. Since I like the partially clad look(gives that look of spontaneity, thus reality) its right up my alley. My guess is, the sexual content might be very sparse, but I can still see a lot of interesting things that could be done in lieu of it. Gives me the idea I ougta try my hand at it=).

AVF: Sometimes sequels are planned, sometimes they just happen because it is (a particular story) overshot and the scenes are worth incorporating into a second part or more. There is also the sales factor. The South of the Border series really took and so I made more:P BTW, The Incubus 1-2 are sort of sequels to Liza Cord, though its more of interrelated story thing than sequels per se. As far as AMY AMY AMY!, sorry, there is no more=(

Love the SHB site, its on of the few pay sites I have a link to.

Ok, thats it for now, thanks to all who watch the movies read and post here, and to Ralphus our fearless administrator!

Comments:ZFX likes & dislikes

My tastes aren't too different from Ralphus in many areas. I like realistic takedowns and abductions. I want to see the gal being bound and stripped. While tying up somebody can take a lot of time, judicious editing can compress that time. It's one of the things I love in the old HOM Blakemore loops. Breast grabbing and overall manhandling/fondling is a major turn-on (though not if it's on an unconscious victim or done to excite her). Generally, I prefer when ZFX keeps things simple because I'm mostly interested in seeing the gals tied up and terrorized.

My dislikes are the times when ZFX goes too far out. I've never cared for their science fiction and horror stuff. The budget never equals what Rick's trying to achieve, so it always comes across as Grade-Z schlock. The last thing I want to see is another backwards filmed tentacle (nobody's ever done that before). I've never cared for blowjobs, so I can always do without that element even though it seems to be an essential part of all ZFX videos.

"Guilty" is one of my favorites out of recent ZFX videos. Penelope Pace was kidnapped, dragged into a van, and quickly bound and gagged. She gets manhandled in a great scene with Rick as the villain and even does a lengthy suspension. The wraparound scenes with Lisa interviewing serial rapist Rick in jail and getting sexually excited was ridiculous. For me, the first half of the movie was great realistic stuff while the second half deteriorated into an unrealistic fantasy.

I've looked at Superheroine Central a few times, but I'm not into the concept, so it's never grabbed me. I like the format of comics, with its sequential progression of panels. The superheroine stuff is less fascinating for me than a more straightforward damsel in distress. I haven't cared for the way the site does work in the comicbook format. I think I've pushed the format more with what I've done with the Shade Paine comic at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rrcomix/
Yah, Yahoo Groups suck, but they're free and they allow adult content. Show me a free webhost that does the same and I'll move there. Considering models don't work for free and it took about 60 hrs to lay out the comicbook format, sharing the images on a free site isn't too bad a deal even if it's a pain to get there.

You can find Shade Paine at her own website. She has an offer to do custom videos at:
I haven't heard back from her regarding a request I made, but Shade's been having a lot of computer and money problems and hasn't been on the net in the last few weeks.

Comments:All the positive talk about Eyewitness Productions being the second coming of ZFX in terms of snuff fantasies might have been premature. After a very impressive debut with Deadly Laundry, I'm disappointed to say that their newest tape, Guilty, is a big step down.

Not to say it's bad, it's just not well made. The descriptions on the site are accurate. A woman is abducted off the street, taken to a lair where she is tortured with electric shock to confess she is a prostitute, then hanged to death. Sounds good to me. Except the way the action is covered is very pedestrian. Most of the shots are filmed from a distance away, basically cutting between two long shots, almost like a security camera. My biggest problem? Olivia Simon is a beautiful woman. Then why do the filmmakers only shoot her in close up just a handful of times, and then for only for a few seconds at most? The close ups in the production are used only as cutaways between two boring camera setups, where the viewer (well, me anyway) is practically screaming for someone to move the camera in. This is a sharp contrast to their earlier first tape that I reviewed last week and praised for the way they filmed much of the action in close up, where you were right in there watching her suffer.

My other problem was that this seemed really padded, even more so than the much longer, earlier tape. Or maybe it was just me getting impatient, waiting for the good stuff to happen. Ironically, about the only time we get a good look at Olivia is right at the very end, where they show numerous tight shots of her dead body, but by that time, I didn't really care. On the positive side, the hanging illusion in this one is even more convincingly shot than in Deadly Laundry. And this one is inexplicably spoken in English, which surprised me because the first tape was in some other language. I was under the impression that these were foreign tapes, but maybe not. At any rate, the elements for a good show are all here. It's the presentation that nearly sinks this one. My grade for Guilty: C+

Comments:Ralphus~Bummer. I kinda get the feeling that the problem with "Guilty" might have been due to a rush in getting it out. There was a long dry spell between the first two and "Guilty". I could be wrong but my thinking that this might be the case has to do with the all the changes at their site. Kinda what Rick’s been going through with the addition of DVD and the pay-per-view thing. All a rush to get something out while battling hackers and trying to include a pay site also. I, unfortunately, also have a gut feeling that "Guilty" might have been filmed prior to or during the same time as the first two. The reason I say this is that everything I've ever read at the original site and at their Yahoo club indicates that Olivia is just about everybody's favorite. She was however conspicuously absent from all the updated pics added to their club. I hope I'm wrong but I think she's history. Why else wouldn't you chose to not show new pics of her. She's probably not there anymore and "Guilty was an attempt to cash in on her popularity. This is all just speculation of course but that's what I'm thinking and I hope I'm wrong.

Anyways, Their next release will probably be a more telling tale as to what direction they are heading. Ralphus, am curious as to your comment that it was in English. English with a heavy accent? If accented, would it have been better in their native tongue?

Not the review I had hoped to read but thanks for giving us the lowdown.

Comments:AvF: Yeah, it was accented English, but real easy to understand. Olivia has a cute and sexy accent; she's obviously not from the US, but she speaks English very well. The others are wearing hoods over their heads, so their dialogue may very well be dubbed for all I know, but I don't think so.

The dialogue wasn't a hindrance to the story, even if it was a somewhat farfetched concept (They are judging her and executing her to rid their town of prostitution. Hey, whatever reason works for you!). Would it have been better without the English? Well, watching foreign films where you can't understand the dialogue doesn't bother me as long as I can follow the gist of the story, and I had no trouble with their first one. This one wouldn't have been any better or worse had it been in another language.

BTW, this second Eyewitness tape is not bad. I would still recommend it. I gave it a C+, not exactly a failing grade here. I just thought the first one was much better, especially in comparison, because I really liked Deadly Laundry a lot. Others may like Guilty more than me. I've said before that my reviews are only my opinions, and not gospel. I'd hate to steer anyone away from a tape they were going to order just because I thought it could have been better.

Regarding Olivia being gone, I don't think so. The bran.jpg pictures that Howie was raving over on the Mike and Tom Yahoo site (link above) are actually Olivia Simon with a blonde wig, and she's in quite a few pictures.

I just posted a message to Tom and Mike over at the eyewitness web site in their forum concerning the amount of clothing on the models. Hopefully I'll get some kind of reply. Maybe if some of you fellow lovers of the suffering, hot, NAKED female form would also write something with the same sentiment we could get them to loosen the threads a little. Hey, if you never ask you'll never get it, right?

"Hello Howie and thanks for your message. We are working on the next release at the moment and this on will in fact have one girl completely naked while she is being tortured ..."

Now I just wonder which model it will be?

Comments:Okay, after three years I finally have to admit, I have NO FUCKING IDEA what "Bring out the Gimp" at the top of this web page means. Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks.

Re: ZFX likes, dislikes - I like almost anything, have posted here many times before about what they are. I particulaly like sexual content, fetishy items (brightly colored ball gags or tape, e.g.), and strong, emphatic, no-kidding-around bondage (chains, big penis gags, etc.). ZFX usually satisfies. I don't like a lot of screaming, don't like the bloody scenes, and whip-by-the-numbers.

Which brings me to my number one pet peeve. Rick, please slow the fuck down! I just saw Dark Offerings for the first time. I loved the scene where the four guys tie the hot chick down to the table on her back, and strip her. She is beautiful, and the overwhelming nature of four guys and four limbs to tie was reminiscent for me of a gng-bang straight sex flick. I just love the idea of that total, overwhelming, overt domination. How can she possibly stop her bondage from happening when there are four guys, each with a hold of one of her limbs? But, because it went so fast, the scene avoided being a "classic" for me, and I really can only enjoy it in slow motion. My biggest ZFX pet peeve. Just once, Rick, can't the dominators in a scene take their time? Why can't the camera linger on and caress her as her leg is slowly pulled into its bond? And then, ever so slowly, the next slimb, etc.? Scenes like that one in Dark Offering have so much promise, but lack sufficient menace. Sorry if anyone disagrees, but that's my opinion.

Comments:Follow up on an earlier posting.

Jenna Haze is a 19 year old newcomer to porn, very cute. In several of her flix she talks about the time she was 17 years old and her 30 year old boyfriend tied her face down, gagged and blindfolded her, and introduced her to the pleasures of anal sex. In her flix, she doed anal, and she swallows, but doesn't do Ass-to-Mouth.

I had seen stills from Whack Attack 12, in which she both voluntarily holds her arms behind her back, and is forcibly held this way, during, respectively, oral and anal sex. I finally saw the flick - it's a good scene, but not as BDSM friendly as the stills would lead one to believe.

But I also just saw another flick, Joey Silvera's Service Animals 7 (Silvera, BTW, seems to have great flix with good cameraword, hardcore sex, etc.) where some young cutie towards the end of the flick performs oral sex on Silvera while her arms are bound over her head. A very erotic, non-faked scene.

Are "vanilla" porn producers pushing the envelope? Yes they are. Bondage plus sex scenes have been virtually non-existent from the industry since the 1970s, thus we have been relegated to watching Rick's and others' simulations. But no question "vanilla" vids are getting more hard core, and SA7 really pushes the boundaries with this one.

Which leads me to the question: Rick, any boundary pushing for you, beyond where you have already gone? (and quite admirably). I've always wondered, if the test for lack of obscenity requires that a work have serious scientific, cultural, educational etc. value, then why don't porn producers make two hour tapes filled with an hour and a half of bondage plus sex, and a half hour of some scholarly panel debating society's taboos, how the bondage in the flik fits in culturally, etc. Viewers could edit out the scholarly stuff if they wished, but wouldn't the porn producer have the benefit of a defense against an obscenity charge by putting that stuff in, and then stretching the envelope way, way out?

For that matter, did anybody notice that in its kiddie poen decision last week, the Supreme Court said you can't censor a work merely because it might potentially lead to crimes?

Rick, have you seen SA7? Do you think there are any opportunities for producers such as yourself to stretch the limits furthur?

BTW, I think all porns have redeeming and serious scientific, educational, artistic, and cultural value, every single one, smile.

Comments:zee-ef-ex: "Bring out the Gimp," is a line from the movie Pulp Fiction. It's when Bruce Willis and Ving Rames are tied up buy the homo store owner and cop named Zed. The Gimp is some weird guy they keep locked in a box who is dressed up in leather bondage gear.

Comments:I see some of you went over and added your comments to eyewitness. Well it seems we riled a few posters up over there enough for them to start saying they want to keep the cloths on the chicks. Most life I've seen on that message board yet, which isn't saying much, you know what I mean if you've been there. Anyhow, I posted a reply to them strongly worded enough to stir the pot a "little" and get some discussion started over there so these guys know there is a fan base for what we want to see.

Gee, all kinds of causes in the world and look what I'm taking time out of my day to do. Screw the Rain Forest!! (^_^)

For anyone interested in my mainstream porn bondage thread, there's another movie I forgot to mention. In Service Animals 6, the cute Kacey has her hands bound behind her with her outfit by Mark Davis - she seems quite surprised. He then proceeds to fuck her mouth and force-deep-throat her. A tasty scene.

Comments:zee-ef-ex, Your mainstream porn bondage thread is a great one. I would love to hear about any others anyone can think of.

The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is Anabolic's "Rough Sex" series. No bondage per se, but a lot of dominating behavior. Unfortunately, I believe those videos are no more.

I must say, I was never impressed much by the first two... thats why it took so long for me to finally get to this one. I'm amazed. I can't believe I missed out on this one for so long. I'd rate it at least 4 Kleenex's **** :::)

Comments:Guinea Pigs 3...Yup, that was a good one from years ago, especially Holly Weston's treatment at the hands of Travis Lee, finishing with her legs tied spread and her ass violated. Sweet memories :) I always liked Holly; she could really emote like a true victim. I thought her scenes were the best thing about Guinea Pigs 3, 4 and 5.

It won't be long now for Ballista 3. The DVD is on its way to my home. The only place I've seen it listed so far was at JMC Distributors (website address above). They have pictures of the box and everything.

With all the fuss about Eyewitness lately, I never got around to mentioning Lashing Liz, by Dan Hawke. It's a great piece of work, probably the most consistently entertaining vid I've ever seen from Hawke. Liz Tyler is excellent. I could watch her suffer all day :)

Paulus, you saw this one. What did you think?

Sorry if this broke some code, guys. just don't make me give back the secret decoder ring, okay?

Falstaff, DanO's site doesn't have a lot of gore. Lots of spandex and semi-naked women, lots of goo and spew, and a bit of violence, but not a lot of blood or bruises.

Comments:Comments: Atten: RICK.... STREAMING TITLE REQUEST.... As you're crawling around searching and opening up box after box of that first generation original media for- "The Misadventures of Lois Payne" (to dub a fresh disc or make a meaty gigga-whopper sized movie file from for that streamin' feller to fiddle wth on the next batch of shows) , please Brother Rick make Mamma smile, and spend the extra two minutes or so and retrive each and every cassette, reel, and/or cartridge you own that contains ANY AND ALL RAW FOOTAGE, OUTTAKES, MISCUES, BLOOPERS, sounds ,speech and deptictions of Miss Victoria Vixxen. (In case this is a "bad topic" to discuss, with all due respect to you and the regulars here, while I've seen Victoria mentioned here and questions asked about her vidoes and her abrupt unexplained departure from the biz, I've not read any replies from you nor seen any rational and informed evidence or speculation from anyone in response to such questions. )

This brings me to the one and only truely agonizing question I've had for years. The previews and also the opening scene in "Jennifer's Nightmares"(ZFX Productions©), renders out of pixelation filter fx's into a clean and erotically powerful two-on one, outdoor punishment session of fully nude Victoria All three of you are flushed and look fairly spent ( Victoria of course looks like she's had the hell beat of her) and this suggests that this scene was well underway for at least 25- 30 minutes before we get to see any titty or anything. Oh sure, one can say that the scene is edited perfectly to meet the needs in which its used-- •as a breif / intense preview clip for ZFX promo and • to reveal the content of Jennifer's nightmare. But just like when they chopped "In a Gadda Da Vidda" down to 3 miIn. for Am pop radio, I raised the same question -- and them boys over there at Atco Records broke down and they released the other 14 1/2 minutes of that song on a big ole 12" LP!! : ) And sold a million of them too !!

And so now here I am again and I ask you this-- where is the other 45- 70 minutes worth of footage from this one scene of Victoria's happy little nude nature lesson out at the Old Pine Tree? No need to discuss it really, yoo can just go ahead and get it ready along with all the other untold hours worth of V.V. treasure and turn it loose as new titles... sella million of em too! Doug Ingle and Ron Bushy, both locals here in San Diego, still call me up every week just to thank me for getting their long long busy ass song made into a famous classic rock and roll tune... : ) ... Sure, you can call me up too after you're new "Victoria's Secret Sessions"tops the charts. : b...... Thanks Rick... !!

Comments: First look!

Being a man of wealth and taste, the last place you would expect to find your humble scribe is in some dark booth in back of an adult video store. But bretheren, what would you do if Ballista-III was on for preview and there were no copies yet to rent? Thats right friends, I took one for the team and found a booth with no holes in the wall and dry to boot!

It was well worth it! I only saw the last 15 mins or so but it was enough to have me ready to fork over the dough the second the DVD hits town. Lisa is gorgeous as ever, long hair up top and cropped closer than ever between the legs! I won't give the plot away but I loved the scene with her plugged standing up, the dildo tied between her legs. Also- great close ups! And can anyone sound better being ravished than Lisa? Ahhh, the sighs, grunts, moans and gasps, then a crack across the ass with an open palm- great stuff!

One last thing- who is in the next film Rick?

I believe you will find more of the Victoria Vixen footage you mention in "Spread Eagle". I seem to remember her getting hosed down inside some sort of kennel and suffering all sorts of outdoor abuse. Its been awhile since I've seen it but I'm pretty sure that is the one.

Comments:Scott and g-in-o No offense, but I'm pretty sure scott is mistaken. I rented Spreadeagle, and there is no scene in that movie where victoria vixen is strung up by the wrists in the nude. The movie you are looking for is Meanstreak. I posted a question about this some months back. Does anyone know any ZFX movie where a woman is strung up or chained by the wrists and punched in the stomach or electro-tortured?

Ok, looks like the site will go live some time Wednesday this week, a lot of you might be getting a email announcement to that affect as well.

Grey: There should be no issue with Macs, (in fact was mastered on Mac using DVDSP) but one thing to bear in mind is these are burned DVDs(actually DVDR) vs pressed (DVD ROM). The video format is the same but the production process is very different and DVDR is less compatible (though not much) than DVD ROM. The main issue is with older machines or drives. My guess is ya got a bad or blank disc:P(my apologies) We had a major issue with our initial disc supplier, basically his discs were not good, so we had to get a new supplier early in the run, so the first 300 discs may have some issues, though we tested every single one. But never underestimate the possibility of us sticking a blank in the wrong pile either.

The Tree Scene: There a strange story behind that scene, it never really got shot, though there is a bit more to it, but basically we shot it at this house on a lake and as we finished tying VV and started the scene, we noticed this boat circling out on the lake. Thinking it was a game warden, we had to untie VV and cover her naked bod. Turned out was a couple horny fisherman but by that time it was starting to rain. Was probably gonna be the last scene so we called it a day. We were really flushed because that day was like 110 and 99%, soon to be 100% humidity...

MAV: SOB2, SOB4 and Viral Load stomach punching, electro tort is like every movie....

Ok that it for now=)

Comments:A Big Helllooo to my fellow comrades here with extraordinary taste! :-) I've been away for a couple of weeks (and before I forget, a big thanks for the assistance for understanding how to find similar material in newsgroups). Scott: Ahh..the stories I can share about going to Times Square in the early 90's...before disney took over...and spending an evening with my pals looking up and down the stretch for the most extreme..yet entertaining stuff we could find...and one night coming across the stunning, erotic picture of Victoria in "Guinea Pigs" that made me stop in my tracks! It was VV that got me started on ZFX and it was VV that haad the 'look' I always desired in women.

Scott, for me, VV is THE zfx model of all time. She just looked stunning being ravished and played with...I have searched on search engines, asked in discussion boards as well as on this one about VV and I too have sadly not received any information. The information I did get a while ago i would rather not believe since it is a very unfortunate story,,so until it is confirmed, I'd rather not think about it. There is another one that says VV asked (or maybe not so much asked but used legal pressure) to not use her image any longer...only Rick knows... But go and collect Lois Payne, Guinea Pigs, Night Prowler (!!!), Spreadeagle, Jennnifer's Nightmares and enjoy and bask in the excellent work of Rick and one of his early subjects..VV!!! (Penelope, in my book is a close second or equal too! Now, there is a woman who exudes passion, eroticism and a deep sexuality in role-playing!). All the best everyone!!!

Comments:Well, talked to Rick, he mentioned that streaming will start out at $10.00 per 15 minutes. He did mention that the rates would be a bit lower if you buy more, but not too sure how much a BIT is..I'm sure we will find out all of this when the site opens tomorrow, nonetheless, that's way too pricey for me... I realize he needs to make a profit, but that's about 40 bucks per movie that you can't even save on your machine plus the reduced quality....Anyway, I do realize that he has to charge what he has to charge... Guess I'll just have to save and eventually build my library from scratch, but Rick's a good guy, and I wish him the best of luck..... DV
