Porno

Porno, despite its racy title, is a lot more Saved meets Demons than it is Deep Throat. Set in 1992, the comedy horror takes place in a small-town theater staffed by religious teenagers and a straight-edge projectionist (Robbie Tann). They accidentally summon an onscreen succubus (Katelyn Pearce) via a cursed film reel. Directed by Keola Racela (Two Sisters), it’s a satanic sex education for goth girl Chaz (Jillian Mueller), peeping Toms Abe (Evan Daves) and Todd (Larry Saperstein), and the hunky Ricky (Glenn Stott). All are self-aware teen archetypes who are surely less intriguing than the writers intended. Though the retro vibes, from Encino Man and A League of Their Own on the marquee to the Kenneth Anger–like film that puts the curse in motion, provide a layered escape. Peppered with outrageous gore, such as a pair of balls exploding, Porno is a funny and frightening time-machine trip worth taking.
