"How about lust? Yes lust. It is one of the 7 deadly sins, isn't it?"

Hell is being unable to stand to look at something you love. I love The Devil In Miss Jones. I've seen it three times. The problem is there's so much anal content that I can't watch half the movie! My life is Hell.

The Devil in Miss Jones begins with Miss Jones begging for pleasure. It's a close up of her face, her expression one of quiet mania. The music playing is reminiscent of Requiem for a Dream.

The scene changed to Justine Jones in her home, going through her nightly routine. She looks at her body in the mirror, she moisturizes her skin, then she goes to the bath. She fills the tub with water and adds bath oils. There's something so human about all of it. It draws the viewer in. The song playing over the scene lends and air of melancholy and is somehow quite touching.

Comfortable in the bath, Justine takes a razor blade and slits her wrist. The bath slowly turns red and life leaves Justine.

Justine awakes in a room and meets Abaca, played by John Clemens. Abaca tells her that despite living a life or virtue, she's to go to Hell since she committed suicide. Spelvin's face and body goes through all the emotions in this scene, like she's traveling rapid-fire through all the stages of grief. It's so very personable.

Both agree that it seems like a waste of a life and Justine suggests she be sent back to live a life of sin for a little while. They agree on lust and Justine is taught by "The Teacher", played by Harry Reems.

The film continues on with Justine engaging in more and more depraved actions including double penetration, inserting fruit into herself and putting the head of a live snake in her mouth.

Then Jones and another woman suck dick desperately. They tear it away from one another and forcing it into their own mouths. Though it has subjectively vile content, there's something so elegant about this movie. We're watching two women and desperately sucking and fucking like drug addicts, swapping spit and come but it's still artful.

I adore this movie. It's one of my favourite porno flicks ever made. The acting is amazing. Georgina Spelvin plays Miss Jones with a quiet dignity during her meeting with Abaca, and a starving, monstrous depravity during the hardest of the sex scenes. Yet still, that dignity remains even as she demands the men who are both in her pussy and her ass to tell her how they can feel their cocks rubbing together through her body.

Though Georgina Spelvin carries this movie, Harry Reems is exceptional in this, as well as every other role I've seen him in. Like I said in my review of Sex Wish, Reems rarely comes across as the typical sleazy male porn star. He always looks like he considers the pleasure of his partner. Even as the authorative Teacher, he orders her around and causes Justine pain but never hurts her. He doesn't hit, or choke, or slap. He has a sense of humour and calm in every role I've seen him in. He just comes across as a chill guy and seeing him on screen is strangely comforting. And yes. I've seen Forced Entry. I didn't like it, and apparently it's the only movie he ever regretted doing. That just lends more credence to him being a good person.

Finally, I want to talk about the dialog. This is the best dirty talk I have ever heard. I'm not a fan of dirty talk. I prefer words of affirmation and grunts of pleasure. Yet it needs must be said that this is peak dirty talk; elegant and eloquent while still remaining filthy. It was remarked in the documentary X-Rated, that the dirty talk in this film was on another level and it's true. And Spelvin delivers it with an almost demonic growl while locked in a thousand yard stare. She's not talking to people, she's talking to parts of them. It's objectifying, commanding, and perfect. When things get too rough, or too painful, Justine says so, but she's so captured by lust she can't help but accept the pain.

When she says she loves The Teacher's cock, she's not talking to him, she's talking to the cock. The Teacher is incidental.

Dialog like this appeared in Memories Within Miss Aggie as well, maybe it's a Damiano staple?

When her time is up, Justine is sent to a bare, hard, cold room. Inside is a man, played by director Gerard Damiano himself, who has no interest in sex and is convinced there's a fly in the room. Justine begs for him to make her come but he could not be less interested. Thus, Justine is trapped in her own private Hell, eternally on the brink, but never able to find satisfaction.

It's heartbreaking, but also it's exactly what Miss Jones deserved.

This movie is a classic and it deserves that status. It earned all the praise, all the notoriety.

Best Moment: Georgina Spelvin's performance. It's unlike anything I've seen in porn.

Worst Moment: The scene with the water-play. The less said about that, the better. Hard no from me.

LILITH'S SCORE: 5/5 – It's the sweetest of Halloween Treats.

But we're not done, my friends. This is a Double Feature and that means it's time to review The Devil In Miss Jones Part 2.

Title: The Devil In Miss Jones Part II
Starring: Georgina Spelvin, Jack Wrangler, Jacqueline Lorians
Director: Henri Pachard
Synopsis: And now Justine Jones has earned a life of eternal lust on earth. But Hell has no fury like a woman scorned, and Justine start to make amends for 10 years of pure Hell without sex. But to the Devil's dismay, he is hopelessly in love with Justine and cannot find a body in which she will remain chaste... - Via Adult Empire
Lilith's Notes: It's the follow up to the classic porno film The Devil In Miss Jones

"Don't call me Lucy."

God damnit.

They pulled a Game of Thrones.

Don't get me wrong, this is a fun, clever movie, but as a sequel to The Devil in Miss Jones, it invalidates the poignant ending. It doesn't just invalidate it, it humiliates it. It literally makes the series into a bunch of dick-heads.

In Hell, no one is allowed to orgasm. Justine Jones, once more played by Georgina Spelvin, tongue lashing and whip-smart, escaped her desolate room and is fucking. Not only is she fucking, but she can get off! The only one in Hell, other than the Devil himself, able to come.

Well, Justine Jones can come! Therefore the final scene if the first movie is rendered pointless. Even if the idea is that she's insatiable, she can still orgasm and thus she's given relief for just a second.

Justine is found fucking Cyrano de Bergerac's nose and is carted off to the Devil for punishment. As this happens the audience is taken on a tour of the impressive Hellscape. Hell has a unique look, with bodies carved or stuck in walls. Red, phallic support columns. A chill and a heat. Wet and dry. It's imaginative and highly detailed.

Presented to Lucifer, played by Jack Wrangler, Justine requests to go back to Earth to enjoy the pleasures of life. Lucifer, thinking he's slick, places Justine's soul in different bodies. Somehow she always finds a way to get off.

The most frustrating part about this movie is that it's good, but it's so wrong. It's out of character Devil In Miss Jones fanfiction. Justine is now a wise-cracking, irreverent party girl. Gone is the proud dignity or the wild begging. Justine is the smartest person in the room and Hell is just a minor inconvenience. Her character development has been thrown out and her personality reset. This is the How I Met Your Mother finale of porn.

Justine finds herself in the body of Roxanne, played by Jacqueline Lorians, who we previously saw in Nightdreams.

Lucifer is played well and there's a cute running gag where every time he's aroused, his crotch steams.

Throughout the film, Justine has sexy adventures with a foreign business man, a blow up doll, a guy who wants her to tell him she loves him, and a vibrator that was standard issue in the 80s. You know the one. You found it under your mom's bed. If you deny it, you're lying.

Lucifer crosses a line when he puts Justine in a body of a nun. Even Justine isn't that depraved. She begs to return to the body of Roxanne and Lucifer agrees. Lucifer is punished for it and loses his tail. But he can be with Justine on Earth, in Roxanne's body. As a concept it's a good way to pass the torch from one performer to another, recast the role of Miss Jones in a believable way so this series could continue.

I'm a sucker for a good forbidden love story. The Devil finding love with an insatiable nympho? Sign me up. If you sever this movie from the original Devil In Miss Jones, then it's a fun, sexy, creative, light-hearted romp where everyone seems to be having fun. But if you're like me and love the original, this is very much a step down. It's not near as daring, or confrontational. The original was something special that had a perfect ending. Devil in Miss Jones Part 2 has the same problems as 3 From Hell or Toy Story 4. They're all fine movies that don't need to exist.

Best Moment: Justine fellates Lucifer's tail. That's fun.

Worst Moment: Any scene with Ron Jeremy. He has nothing to do with the plot and he's just there because he's Ron Jeremy.

LILITH'S SCORE: 3.5/5 – It's a Halloween treat and trick all rolled in to one.

I hope you enjoyed this year's Halloween Trick & Treat!

Until next time, my voracious voyeurs. I’m Lilith, and I’m always watching.
