Animus (DVD)


"Animus" is like a good indie flick with very, very hot sex. Think "The Blair Witch Project" with butt-fucking and a different kind of cheap thrill -- which is a good thing. This video manages to get most of what it's trying to do right -- from the mystery to the cop story to the incredible sex. It's artsy, but unpretentious (thank God!). I'm not even going to try to explain the convoluted plot -- except to say it involves Y2K, the Yin-Yang symbol, an opium den and the full moon.

Animus is an ethereal creature, played by Thomas Lloyd, who looks like rocker Chris Isaak's younger, studlier brother. Animus has been a bad, bad boy. He likes to sneak into houses late at night and fuck the owners, and then steal all their valuables. Okay, so maybe he's only half-bad. Then there's hunky, dimpled love god Blake Harper, who plays Animus' doppelganger, Detective Joe Domino. "Domino" -- yin-yang -- any of this getting through yet? Well, you'll get it when you see it -- and you really, really should see it. "Animus" has a lot going for it -- very sexy actors (who can really act), a witty script that is self-referentially funny at times, and direction and videography as good as I have seen in a long time (all by Wash West). It may be a strange ride, but it's well worth it.

Lloyd, playing Animus, gets to fuck almost everybody -- from boyish sexpot Tommy Lord, to studly Tommy Cruise (another mystery -- why does this guy get the name when Dave Nelson looks so much more like the real thing?) to, finally, Detective Domino. Lloyd is one hot top, and delivers a hip-grinding fuck to each one that leaves the studs moaning for more (except in the case of Cruise, who does the cutest little whimpering thing while he's being fucked -- hot!). Animus also likes to be watched, in Lord's case by his wife (who is tied to a chair throughout their fuck) and in Cruise's case by his lover (Peter Logan), who watches from the balcony while fellating himself.

Harper, as Detective Domino, doesn't do too badly for himself, either. He meets up with gorgeous Dave Nelson, who pops his load as soon as he sees Harper in his police blues (of course, detectives don't usually wear police blues, but why quibble?). Harper also gets his man, Animus, in the end -- pun intended. The scene between Harper and Lloyd is a scorcher, mainly because the studs are so into character and the sex -- it's amazing what a difference it makes when you have two guys with such obvious talents, and when they use them to their greatest advantage on video.

Along the way, there is a three-way in an opium den (whatever happened to opium dens anyway? -- they were so much more stylish than crack houses) between J. J. Bond, Duncan Mills and Tanner Hayes (what a beautiful uncut cock!). Hayes is then run into the station for interrogation -- and an interesting take on the good cop-bad cop routine -- by Jack Simmons and Zach Richards. Simmons tries to fuck the info out of Hayes with his humongous cock -- and Richards tries to suck it out of him. Which one is playing the good cop? You tell me. Either way, it takes more than one session for Hayes to crack, as it were.

There is also a comical scene between two lovers (David Bradley and Brad Davis) who are not visited by Animus, but are turned on by the idea -- so much so that they recreate the wife tied up in the chair scene -- with a blow-up doll. The scene may be lighthearted in tone, but the two get down to a very serious fuck session.

When was the last time you can remember seeing a porn video that held your attention -- I mean, really held your attention, all the way to the end?
