HOLLYWOOD—In these days when bleakness pervades the world of porn, it's good to know that one man still has the ability to show its inhabitants a howling good time.
That man, of course, is Jeff Mullen, a.k.a. Will Ryder, and the Heaven & Hell Halloween bash he threw Saturday night—his seventh annual with All Media Play partner Scott David and promoter Danny B.—proved a revival of the kind of epic, unforgettable blowouts he built his name on before becoming one of the industry's most successful directors.
With respect to the latter, given equal billing this time around was the release of Mullen's latest blockbuster comedy, Flight Attendants, from his X-Play and Adam & Eve Pictures. A number of the movie's stars were in attendance, including Hillary Scott, Sunny Lane, James Bartholet, Thomas Ward, Lexi Love, Shyla Stylez, Kacey Jordan, Chastity Lynn and Eric John.
All corners of the sprawling party venue—winding from the entrance of Vinolio restaurant through the adjacent Ecco nightclub and into a vast open-air back lot—were filled with familiar industry faces ... under their best Halloween guises, naturally. Mullen reported a total turnout of 1,200 revelers, who kept the event roaring into the early Sunday morning hours.
Among the many other notables spotted were: Nina Hartley, Ernest Greene, Tori Black, Tee Reel, Angelina Armani, Monstar, Faye Reagan, Georgia Jones, Dane Cross, Flower Tucci, Adrianna Nicole, Nick Manning, Brynn Tyler, London Keyes, Kimber James, Angelina Valentine, Criss Strokes, Marie McCray, Prinzzess, Hunter Bryce, Magdalene St. Michaels, Carmen McCarthy, Tera Knightly, Angela Aspen, Sophie Dee, Lee Bang, Shy Love, Mya Luanna, Jack Lawrence, Alex Gonz, Porno Dan, Dino Bravo, Candice Nicole, Roy Karch, Lexington Steele, Daisy Marie, Cassandra Calogera, Chayse Evans, Vannah Sterling and, making one of his trademark late-late arrivals, Ron Jeremy.
