PHILADELPHIA—The "grand master of erotic filmmaking" is back on HotMovies.com, just in time to celebrate his birthday on Feb. 26.
Few directors have made the impact of Cecil Howard throughout the history of the adult movie business, and few movies made the impact of Howard's epic four-hour saga, Last X-Rated Movie. Now for the first timeê, this landmark film will be available on the internet in its entirety, exclusively at HotMovies.com.
As was typical of all Howard's work, Last X-Rated Movie received huge acclaim when originally released in four parts during the 1980s and early 1990s. The first two parts each garnered AVN's highest rating and the magazine named the saga "the best multi-part adult series ever shot on video."
In the golden age of porn, before compilations became the order of the day, this was the longest adult movie ever released. It was condensed, re-edited and repackaged by Howard in 1991 into the definitive four-hour director's cut on VHS, exclusively for the Penthouse Book and Video Society. The re-release again earned AVN's highest rating and prompting another critic to name it "the best X-rated movie of all time."
Eric Edwards won AVN's Best Actor award and Nina Hartley took home AVN's Best Supporting Actress trophy for the original production, which featured an unmatched collection of golden era talent including hall of famers Ron Jeremy, Tom Byron, Tasha Voux and Sharon Mitchell.
In the past, Howard's HotMovies releases have hit the site as special, one-month-only releases. Not this time. Howard said he wants fans to have the opportunity to view this masterpiece, cut as he originally intended it, for eternity. "This is a grand opus and I encourage people to take the time to watch the whole thing," said the elusive Howard. "The story is the thing that sets it apart from other porn movies and the sex is some of the hottest I ever shot."
"As always," said HotMovies director of business development James Cybert, "we are grateful for this partnership with Cecil. We take great pride in carrying the biggest library of porn available anywhere but quality means more than quantity and Cecil's movies are the cream of the crop. The Last X-Rated Movie is the best of the best and I can't wait to hear the reaction from our viewers."
HotMovies remains the one and only licensed distributor for Howard's work, including multiple award winners Neon Nights, Babylon Pink, Foxtrot, Star Angel and Platinum Paradise.
