- Joanna Angel’s The XXXorcist
, a parody of the classic horror film, The Exorcist
, will make its premiere this weekend in New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Atlanta.
“It’s really director Doug Sakmann’s movie so a lot of the credit goes to him, but I’m happy to have it in movie theaters,” said Angel, who stars in the title as a young woman possessed by a demon.
“To me, it’s more of a horror movie than a porn, but I had a good time making it.”
Bernard Nearey, manager of Philadelphia’s Roxy Theatre which is also hosting screenings, said scheduling a hardcore porn movie at his theater was an easy decision.
“Doug (Sakmann) called me up and asked if we had an opening for Halloween weekend and I said we did, so he sent me a copy of The XXXorcist, and this other movie Repenetrator¸ and I thought they’d be good to show,” Nearey said.
“Our audiences are pretty sophisticated. I’ve had adult movies here before and I hardly ever hear complaints.”
For Sakmann, making a theatrical premiere was natural, given his mainstream film background.
“I always felt that this movie should have a theatrical premiere and give people a chance to see it on a big screen,” Sakmann said.
“I think people who see it will see that Joanna is a really good actress and not only in her sex scenes but overall… Who else would have sex for hours covered in make-believe vomit?”
The movie is scheduled to run at midnight Saturday at the Pioneer Theatre, 155 E. 3rd St. in New York. Tickets are $10 for those 18 and over and are available at www.tix.com. Tommy Pistol, Kylee Kross and Sakmann are scheduled to attend. An after-party will be announced following the screening.
