Dorcel Teaser: What is the price of immortality? That's what Cecile wonders while looking at her sleeping partner. Some centuries earlier, she became immortal and her life became a whirl where men and women play the most perverted games. From sweet lesbian caresses to harsh penetrations, from expert fellatios to the most ardent sodomies, from elegant female masturbations to frenzied double penetrations- the desired are always satisfied. A string of fantastic scenes of extreme eroticism, lead by the enchanting Melissa Lauren.
The Movie: Cecile who is played by Melissa Lauren leads us down a very perversed road of what should be the life of a newly born vampire but the story is so confusing which in my opinion porn shouldn't be confusing at all. Another thing that catches my eye is how can you call it vampire porn if the performers aren't wearing fangs and show no resemblance of a vampire at all. Granted it has three orgy scene that bleed right into the other and offer no real stimulation where as the b/g scenes are more arousing all together. But it does have its perks for those that came keep up with the confusion.
Ritual directed by Moiré Candy, produced by Marcel Dorcel and distributed by Wicked Pictures is presented in is 2.0 Dolby Digital Surround Sound and in an anamorphic 16.9 widescreen format. Filmed in French, the option menus lets you chose the language. It was very interesting watching an adult title and reading the captions. The audio dubbing wasn't the greatest but in the long run it really didn't matter that much especially during the sex scenes. The lighting was off by a lot and there was a lot of grain to the picture quality, and the flesh tones came off rather dull. The lighting at times was too soft and there was a lot of shadowing in the background.

Opening Scene: Cecile played by Melissa Lauren does the scene narrations as she explains how her life has changed as an immortal. She goes through time giving the viewers a glance back to the past in her future life. Things don't go as she thought they would be as she stated.. "A newly awakened Vampire".
Scene 1: Julie Silver, Martin Schneider, Melissa Lauren, Oliver Sanchez, Regina Ice, Suzie Carina, Veronica De Souza :
In the first of three orgy scenes, lasting roughly fifteen minutes this a mindless fucking free for all with plenty of action for everyone's tastes. With the entire cast partially dressed and wearing feathered mask they pair up with two others engaging in b/g/g and g/g or b/g/b. The scene contains so much for one to focus on entirely. The couple go through just about every vaginal and anal sexual position including DP action ending with the pop shot ending as a facial or a body shot.
Scene 2: Melissa Lauren, Sean:
The scene opens with Melissa looking at what looks like bite marks on her neck and thinking to herself how and when it happen. There is a flashback in her mind back to the orgy in a different time and place. Her vampyric appetite needs to be sated and she finds her current bedmate t that proves to be more than a satisfying morsel for her. Melissa gets to work on his cock giving him a BJ with a condom on (why?????) He gets right to work doing her in mish while she drifts back and forth from the images from her past life and the orgies. She then takes control riding him vigorously before he does her doggie and unloads on her ass.
Scene 3: Keana Moiré, Martin Schneider, Natalli Di Angelo, Suzie Carina, Tarra White,Wein Lewis:
In present day time Melissa find some refuge in the idea that the son of who made her a vampire might have a cure for what ails her. Inside his home you have couples paired off doing their own thing. There is ample amount of vaginal and anal penetration with butt plugs and dildos for everyone's taste. Each of the ladies end up either getting the guys load on their face, breast or ass.
Scene 4: Leny Ewil, Julie Silver:
Coming inside after sunbathing Julie and Leny start to make up by the fireplace place then take it over to the couch were one thing leads to another and they are giving the other oral. Leny gets right to work nailing her in mish then spoon and cg before he unloads on her body.
Scene 5: Eufrat, Michele, Sarah Twain:
Out on his boat they indulge in a smaller orgy with the ladies getting deep into the other in a nice g/g threesome while the captain takes on two of the ladies sharing his cock with them equally with the ladies sharing his load between them.
Scene 6: Claudia Rossi, Neo :
Claudia shows off her wares in a corset type dress which gives Neo the easy access his fingers need to get her pussy primed for his cock. After eating her out he nails her up against the wall in standing doggie, then takes her over to the couch where Claudia mounts up for CG and ARCG and Anal spoon with him unloading outside of her.
Scene 7: Claudia Rossi, Melissa Lauren:
When it comes to g/g scenes, not all of them leave a lasting impression on me.. Well this one did.. These two ladies go at it without the use of any toys to get the other off.
1- From what I saw, the male talent had a choice of wearing a condom. The ones that didn't gave more of a vigorous pounding while the others were just ok.
2- I did like the Victorian setting they used and the choice of masks for the men and ladies.
3- Sex is sex no matter what language the movie is in.. It's just funnier listening to the cast dirty talking in every language offered.
1- My pet peeve when it comes to porn is when the performers aren't all listed and one has to attempt to indentify them. That drives me insane. Male talent especially!
2- An orgy scene that is too busy to focus in on just one couple. I can just picture a guy with his cock in his hand whacking off and unable to get off because of all the jumping around from couple to couple.
3- In other Dorcel films that I have reviewed, the dubbing and subtitles weren't as poorly done as in Ritual.
4-When porn writers try to work in the vampire theme into its story they should be clear in classifying what kind of vampire they are referring too.. A Sexual Vampire feeds off the energy and emotions during sex which is what I am amusing what they are trying to get across but then show the vampire bites on Melissa's throat.
5-A blowjob with a condom on (Scene 2)?? Explain that? What was the purpose of it? And why you even consider doing so with how condom friendly titles tend not to fair as well as no condom use at all?
Final Thoughts: Director Moiré Candy had their hands full while working on Ritual. From what I saw, they tried to put too much into the orgy scenes and not enough in the b/g scenes. The orgy scenes had too much going on all at once making it difficult to enjoy( for me at least). All of the technical issues which I noted prior took very little a way from the performers and their coupling on screen. I would have preferred that they had used English subtitles instead of the other options but one cant have everything they want from Dorcel Films.
As a couple friendly porn, I had a hard time rating it just on the sex alone and finally ended up with a " Rent It" because of the overkill . Sometimes too much isn't worth it or the time one puts into watching it and just might end up turning it off and popping in something else to watch...
