UPDATED with new Group Custom video! Heroine Legends’ The Demon Within 2 is now available, and the company is also announcing the availability of its third Group Custom project. Read on for more information about this, as well as Sidekick’s extended review of The Demon Within 2.
[Beware spoilers] Heroine Legends has released part two of its Demon Within series, and if you’re a straight-up peril fan, I don’t think they’ve ever shot a video more suited for you.
The film basically breaks down into five sections. Three fight scenes, the creation of Dark Vega, and the final few minutes where Allura goes all Zero Dark Thirty type torture on Vega.
I think the best way to cover this is to go through all five major scenes and break them down individually. I also want to write a little about the three main actresses in this picture and maybe take a look into the future. This is going to be a long ride so buckle up…
Fight #1 – Vega awakens in a cavernous warehouse setting and is quickly confronted by Decibel. Decibel wastes no time and throat lifts Vega. In a surprise move, Vega breaks the hold by kicking Decibel in her crotch. Not a tactic I expected from a virtuous heroine, but hey, you low blow guys out there aren’t complaining. The ladies exchange punches and kicks and have a test of strength. Decibel delivers several stomach punches and a low blow of her own. Vega slaps on a short reverse bearhug and a choke hold. Decibel answers back with a low blow and a kick to Vega’s backside. Vega fires back with another low blow and Decibel eventually retreats.
Fight #2 – Vega enters another room and is confronted by four goons in masks. They score several punches to the face and stomach until Vega takes control. The goons fight back and as one pulls Vega by her arms and another by her legs, a third comes in and drops her over his knee. Vega soon recovers however and is able to win the fight. A scientist enters and saturates the room with Hyperyite, which Vega has a Kryptonite-like weakness to. The goons step back in and choke Vega unconscious.
Creation of Dark Vega – Vega awakens quite naked and finds the scientist removing her boots. He presses some buttons on a computer and Dark Vega,who is also quite naked, literally walks out of Vega. Basically the Heroine Legends version of the junkyard scene from Superman III. Energy is then transferred between the two, and a new villainess is born.
Fight #3 – This fight is short and dominated by Dark Vega. She lands several punches, kicks, and a low blow that drops Vega. Dark Vega attempts to escape but runs into two goons who she dispatches with ease. She escapes just before Allura shows up which leads us to…
Torture, Torture, Torture! – It’s actually a montage of different torture scenarios which include a Hyperyite weakening and a whipping scene where Vega is strapped face down on a table. This is followed by another whipping scene where Vega is tied to some shelving. She is then tied up arms over head , punched in the stomach, and given a low blow by Allura. Vega is then tied to a chair and shocked with a cattle prod like device. Finally, Allura dunks Vega’s head repeatedly into a large bucket of water.
Was there anything else of relevance? Oh, yes. I wanted to mention that there are no shortage of up-skirt shots throughout the film so you up-skirt fans out there are well accounted for. So, now that we have the specifics out of the way, let’s talk a little about the leads.
Vega – We’ve covered hundreds of different models and actresses on this site and I don’t know if any of them display more of the attributes of what I think a superheroine should be than Talie Praire. She just looks like she should be one. She also plays scenes of heroine dominance and heroine peril with equal skill. I just think she is one of the best casting choices ever made in this genre. She’s just perfect for her character.
Dark Vega – Newcomer Hailey Stillwell plays a great villainess. She has the smug, overconfident “I’m going to destroy you” look that every bad guy should have down pat. She’s beautiful, and, I’m guessing by her appearance, sticks to a rather extensive core workout routine. This is actually the character that I’m most keen to see develop over season two. Vega comments that Dark Vega is much stronger than her. That was big for me because I think Heroine Legends needed a character like this. It’s really been my only gripe about their work and that is all the characters seem to be on a pretty even playing field power-wise. I think that needs to change in some way and introducing an evil Supergirl like character that is plainly stronger than almost all of your heroines does that. It opens the door for so many possible perilous situations. How would Thorne deal with a superstrong, bulletproof, villainess? How would Nightshadow? How would Aurora? I don’t know, but I would love to find out.
Allura – I didn’t think an actress who came across as so good-natured and friendly as Cayla Black did in her videos announcing her group custom would make a good villainess. I was wrong. Horribly, horribly, wrong. You have my apologies Cayla. You are absolutely terrific in this episode. When she walks into the room you get the feeling she is the master of everything. Just a great presence about her. I loved her performance in this film.
And now a little about the future. I’m not sure what or when the next release is, but if you go to the official site, Logan recently uploaded dozens of photos for most, if not all of the upcoming episodes. I’ve thumbed through some and they look great. One upcoming episode that seems to be getting a lot of chatter is Agent Files 5. From what little is revealed, mind control plays a part in things, and it appears that three heroines (including Thorne) get absolutely decimated at the same time by a robot type character played by a hot girl in a gold outfit. Please note that I’m just making assumptions about this from the photos that I looked at, so Logan, if I read too much into them, please feel free to correct me. Either way, I’m on board and Agent Files 5 does look terrific.
And that’s about it. Apologies for running this long, but there was a lot going on in this film which I now consider the best ever produced by Heroine Legends. Agree? Disagree? Please let your voice be heard below (after a couple of announcements from Heroine Legends).
Group Custom #3 – Thorne (Updated with new video)
We want to thank everyone who contributed to Cayla & Kristin’s Group Customs!! Both were fully funded and are in pre-production now! We are finishing up a few personal customs this week and are jumping right into filming those 2 Group Customs right after!!
The next Group Custom is going to have a slightly higher goal because we want to make it a bigger production! This next one is going to take the idea some of you may have seen before of a Feature Film with Kristina Hess as Thorne called “Shifted” where she jumps between the lives of other Heroines – for those of you who have seen the TV show ‘Quantum Leap’, this has that type of vibe.
Similar to Kristin’s Group Custom, you will be able to choose types of torture, villains, locations, scenarios, and for this one, the costumes/characters she ‘jumps’ into! We will start the 30-day campaign very shortly so it can run while we are filming the other 2 Group Customs. This will allow us to jump right into filming that one– so for all of you Kristina Hess, Thorne, & Black Queen fans, keep your eye out for this Group Custom in the next few days!!!
If you don’t already know, “Heroine Legends” has it’s own Forums called HL Forums on our website! You can register there and become a member OR post as a guest– most of our cast is registered, so you have the opportunity to speak with the characters as well as chat with the rest of the HL Community! And it’s not limited to HL content only– you can talk about whatever you want! Stop on by and check it out, here: http://www.heroinelegends.com/forums.html
We will also be setting up HL Chat soon and have designated times where you can chat directly with our actresses in a Chatroom Session!! This feature is coming soon!! HL Forums are live NOW!!! :)
