Incredibly disturbing, fascinating record of emotional wreckage
This is a very disturbing series, and this installment disturbed me the most. In fact, it shook me up more than anything I've seen for a long time, and, you know, I've seen a lot of very disturbing stuff.
But this is real. It's pornography, too, but it's also a record of a very manipulative man emotionally abusing the actresses. Certainly they're in the film by choice, but that doesn't make the on-screen psychological carnage any less ugly. These actresses are human beings first and, personally, I think they're too young (between 18 and 24) to properly "handle" this sadomasochistic assault on their minds and bodies. Of course, I could be wrong.
The series is directed by "Khan Tusion", who also directed the "Rough Sex" series, "Hellfire Sex" and a couple of others. He may be the off-screen "host", but it's not clear. Anyway, this host speaks to the women before they get into a sex scene and he tries really hard to upset them, break their will, and reduce them to "piece of sh** whores" (his words, not mine).
Some of the women take his abuse and even get off on it, but a couple appear to be devastated by it. The final girl walks out of her scene clearly upset.
If it's all a put-on, these women are incredible actresses. If it's not a put-on (and I suspect it isn't), then we're watching human car wrecks and pornography has taken a questionable plunge into the darkest abyss.
Some of the confrontations are so real and so upsetting they're fascinating to watch -- horrible, also, really horrible, but fascinating in a ghoulish, negative way.
It's like watching a hardcore "Big Brother" that is set in a house of sociopaths and abuse victims.
I'm not sure I want to see any more of these. They're depressing. The sex scenes are hard and abusive, too, and any pleasure the participants receive seems to be coming from a very negative, complex place.
The eroticism level is virtually nil. It would be hard to "get off" on this production. Still, there must be a market for it because it's a series. If it wasn't successful, it wouldn't continue to be produced.
I felt sorry for these women and angry at the producers and director. There is a repulsive power play at work in "Meatholes 3" and the "consensual abuse" is pretty horrendous.
