Heroine Legends Episode 1.3 – “Delusional”

HL 1 3 1 175x98 Heroine Legends Episode 1.3   DelusionalAnother beauty with real talent, impressive fight choreography, and another episode featuring high-end production values.  That’s what you get with Delusional, the latest release from Heroine Legends.

One question: Where is Logan finding his leads? OK, that’s a dumb question. They shoot in Los Angeles, and there is no shortage of beautiful young women out there. However, he has now found three leads that can act, pull off a fight scene, an fulfill all the responsibilities a lead actress has in these videos. The newest young starlet that I can only assume is going to have a large following is Tristan Rupp, who plays Dawn.

This episode gets to the action a lot quicker than the previous two. Dawn enters an apartment building and it appears she is vacillating between states of pain and pleasure. It’s not shown on film, but judging by her reactions, I’m guessing she just received her aura.

Dawn doesn’t have time to experiment with her new-found powers, as a few creepy looking characters in masks show up. She takes on several of them in fights that stretch all over the apartment building, and she gives as good as she gets. This fight scene is impressively done and I imagine it took a lot of time and coordination to pull off.

This scene also gives us an inkling of what her aura can do. She is able to take telekinetic control of the bad guys and actually have them assault one another. She still ends up on the run and when she turns to make a stand, the bad guys have vanished without a trace.

Dawn returns to her apartment where her friend Wendy is waiting for her. They talk for a while when Dawn suddenly realizes that she has no idea how Wendy got into her place. She also notices a mask in Wendy’s bag. The same kind of mask that her assailants were wearing.

After being confronted by Dawn about this, Wendy’s demeanor suddenly changes. She goes full on villainess and threatens to destroy Dawn’s perfect little life. She then knocks Dawn unconscious with the use of a rag that I can only assume is drenched in chloroform. At this point we don’t really learn why Wendy feels the way she does, but we do learn that like the previous two heroines, Dawn is a virgin. Maybe that’s why everyone in the Heroine Legends universe is always fighting. Nobody is getting any.

Dawn wakes up outside in a black super heroine costume and she looks great. However, Wendy and her masked friends are there to dole out some punishment. Dawn holds up for a while but the numbers are stacked heavily against her. She is choked, put in a reverse bear hug, given a backbreaker, knocked out, and tied to a tree.

She is awoken by a seemingly good samaritan named Abraham. Before he can release her, Abraham is confronted by Wendy who we learn has aura powers of her own. While Abraham and Wendy fight, Dawn is able to free herself and through the use of her powers, put Wendy down. Abraham didn’t seem all that shocked that these women had super powers so I’m guessing he knows a little bit about these auras.

I thought this episode was the best of the three and I think Dawn was my favorite character thus far. Tristan Rupp has all the tools to play a believable heroine and I thought she was flat out one of the best actresses I’ve seen in the genre.

Delusional didn’t do much to push the larger storyline forward, but it introduced a great new heroine and a team of villains that I liked. This film also had a nice mix of peril and girl power moments and I think this episode will appeal to a wide audience.

There is one more thing I wanted to point out. I think Heroine Legends has done an admirable job of getting away from the villains in T-shirts phenomenon that plagues a lot of productions. OK, so the guy on the rooftop in the first episode was wearing a T-shirt but for the most part they seem to be trying make their villains stand out a bit more with masks or martial arts type uniforms. I know this kind of thing is low on the list of what people care about in these films, but I appreciate the effort to upgrade this area. I hope other producers follow their example.

Purchase Episode 1.3 at Heroine Legends
  1. mblostprophet

    Being that I bought the other 2 and loved both I got this one as well.

    I will say that innitally I wasn’t very excited for this episode. The heroine’s costume wasn’t something I was particularly interested in when I first saw that this was available, I decided because I’d seen the other two I have to give this one a chance.

    I’d have to rate this one at the bottom of the other two based on my perferences alone. (costume mostly)

    The acting is AMAZING, this chic is really cute, and reminds me a lot of Natilie Portman. The way the movie plays out is very well done, genuine, & these guys know how to make some KICK ASS videos. The facial expressions of the heroine are amazing, she really does a good job acting.

    The film is always seroius and believable, although has funny quirks to it like the others. I loved the scene where she’s punching the dude in the face over and over! Very well shot, I thought it was entertaining and I was laughing by the end of it, A+ sir.

    I LOVED the dorky goofball side kick that the villian had, in many ways this guy totally made the film for me. For not being as interested in the heroine, the movie still kicked ass.

    As it stands now I’m getting everything these guys put out. I can’t believe how professional these are. Every one of the 3 vidoes so far is expectly shot and thought out.

    The cuts and the scripting are on a whole new level over most videos in this genre. The subtle switching between camera’s really make these feel like a legitmate professionally done series.

    I’m sold guys… even on a video I wasn’t very excited to see, this one had me laughing my ass off in spots and totally held my interest the entire time. I’m loving the direction you guys are going. I can’t wait to see what’s next.

    well played.

  2. Hey everyone!

    Sidekick: Thanks for the detailed review and laying it out for everyone so they know what the episode is about; I’m glad you liked it! Thanks for noticing that our villains aren’t always street thugs too (except in episode 1 where one of them was her boyfriend – no costume for him… yet) ;)

    mblostprophet: I love the feedback! Even though it didn’t feature the type of costume you particularly like, I’m happy to hear you were at least entertained by this film! As you can see, with peril, fights, and even costumes, we try and keep a wide variety to appeal to as many people as possible. Out of curiosity though, what is your favorite type of costume? Would love to make sure we get one you really like!

    Everyone: I’ve gotten a few emails about the episode already and I’m thrilled to hear the positive feedback and LOVE the comments and suggestions! When you guys let us know what you want to see, it opens doors to new ideas for us to incorporate what you want in upcoming films! For the peril fans, keep in mind that each chloro scene, torture scene, KO scene will all be done differently and according to how the feel of the video is. Some will be quick, some will be long and drawn out. We try to mix it up to cater to a large, broad audience.

    SIDE NOTE: Check out ‘Superianna 1.0′ from “The Battle For Earth” when you get a chance. I wrote and directed that film for them and was happy to be a part of the production! The lead actress did an amazing job at filling the red boots Heroine’s role and the film turned out to be very entertaining. I want to note that although I wrote and directed it, it is still “The Battle For Earth” and completely separate from “Heroine Legends”… though you will begin to see some cross-over characters intertwining in the storylines! Hope you all enjoy that aspect!

    We will be putting up the trailer for Episode 4 of “Heroine Legends” within the next few days so you can get a sneak peak of what’s coming up! We’re excited to show you how these episodes are revealing more and more of the story! (Plus there’s a surprise guest in Episode 4 for those of you who actively follow multiple productions!)

    That’s all for now– hope to hear more feedback! Thanks!!

    Well honestly the costumes from the first and second episode were fantastic. I’m a big fan of seeing a toned stomach.

    As far as video preferences, I prefer the heroine to be on the receiving end of whatever is being dished out. A few examples come at the times listed below from the first few episodes.

    first episode 16:57 – 17:35 The heroine does a nice job selling the scene and looks great, good distance with camera and everything.

    first episode 17:56 – 18:33
    I loved this scene, I like how the hold was prolonged and showed the heroine trying to struggle to get free. I’m a big fan of the heroine being stretched out in a hold or in captured sequences where her arms over head in a way as to lengthen the body. Having the heroine get into situations where she’s arched her back and is stretched in someway as to really highlight her core, I like the careful slow panning when the heroine is locked in a compromising position that she can’t free herself from.

    My recommended approach to this type scene: Spend a little longer focusing on the situation worsening for the heroine, I also would like to see her fall to a point of going limp when being held for the period she is held for causing her to be on the edge of survival. I think it’s the loss of control of the heroine that really sparks my interest the most, the “Oh shit, I don’t have this under control” expressions, as well as the humiliating result,… being captured by those that you are trying to fight. Total loss of control. I’m excited to see where she ends up once we see this heroine again.

    second episode 17:24 – 18-37 this was an excellent bit! paticularly at 17:56 where she stumbles into a much worse situation. She looks great while really selling her predicament. This would have been the BEST spot for her to get captured and wake up some where else for an Interrogation type episode. What I love is how well this scene was acted out, and how good a job she did selling it.

    Regardless if the heroine ends the episode winning or loosing, I always like to see her at least get into some bad situations where it doesn’t look good.

    In capture sequences my biggest complaint with most films is that the heroine will be getting zapped or punched but somehow by the end is still standing just fine while she’s tied up…. I would like to see scenes like this acted out in a way that the heroine is slowly loosing the encounter with the bad guy. She might take the first few punches alright and still be standing, but I think after a little softening up the heroine that’s tied up should be “dangling” and be more reacting to the punishment vs standing there and not selling it.

    I also like to see when the heroine gets teased in a menacing way. Like being held against will and spanked, not so much because it’s this grand torture, more the idea that the heroine has to sit there and get humiliated by being spanked by the very people she’s trying to kill. It’s that menacingly evil fun stuff that also makes for the heroine to have a “bad day” lol.

    Although so far I can’t complain, I like to see the heroine win, and we’ve seen a mixture of both in the first few episodes of the various series, I’m excited to see what happens when the going gets tough for some of these cuties.

  4. mblostprophet: LOVE the feedback!! We will be sure to incorporate your ideas into the films for sure! We appreciate the details!

    Everyone: We are organizing our 2nd series and want to see the level of interest from our viewers. It will be based on Angels & Demons (and include magic, vampires, etc) – the elements of peril will remain, but it will not be SuperHeroine-based. What are your thoughts on this type of series? (Keep in mind that there will be sexy outfits still)

    Logan

  5. im thinking about buying this but dont quite know how much peril is in it can someone maybe give me a list or something of what is in this episode

  6. Bill: Several chokes, chloro, arm holds, KO, back breaker, nightmare sequence, fear, AOH.

    Everyone: Let me know how you feel about the current pricing structures producers in this genre are offering – what you like, what you would change, what motivates you to buy the episodes. Thanks!

    Logan

  7. is there any belly punching and is there any when aoh

  8. Bill: AOH is at the end. If belly punches = punches to the gut/stomach, then there are a few but not as many as our other films.

  9. jeff l

    Hey Logan when is episode 4 gonna be released and what kind of peril do you have planned for that

  10. I like everything in this episode except the costume. Can’t nail it, but that costume just doesn’t appeal to me…

  11. Jeff I: Episode 4 should be out within a week or two – the peril includes a cat fight, whipping, the Aura, chase, throws back and forth, bondage, quick chloro, chokes, cape choke, bear hug… :)

    ximi: In all honesty, the costumes are the hardest to nail because everyone likes something different it seems. We continuously got requests for a full leotard/catsuit and now it seems like everyone is asking more for the 2-piece costumes. What is your preference?

    Logan

  12. jeff l

    Hey Logan is the trailer for episode 4 coming out soon

  13. Steve

    I greatly prefer the 2 piece costumes, especially when the girls have the look to pull it off.

  14. Tim D

    is there anything you can tell us about “The Torture Chamber” like is it going to cost anything and whatever else you would be willing to tell us

  15. Hey all!

    Jeff I: We actually uploaded the trailers for episode 4 & episode 5 just to tease you lol if you double-click the trailer at the top of this page to take you to episode 3’s trailer, you’ll see our YouTube channel. …or just go here: http://www.YouTube.com/CrosstheLineFilms ;)

    Steve: We will continue to mix it up with the costumes so expect 2-piece costumes-a-plenty from our Heroines and Villainesses!

    Tim D: “The Torture Chamber” videos will be filmed in a surveillance-cera style switching between 3 cameras. They plan to run about 8-9 minutes each and though pricing isn’t final, they will most likely run somewhere around $10.99. The intent of these videos is to bring the lengthened amount of peril to our viewers in one location. It’s less story, more straight peril… Contained in one area and usually bound. Some will wear costumes, others will not. Some will fight back, some will not be so lucky. Each “TTC” scene will be unique so everyone should find at least something they like from this sub-series. We plan on filming this month for that category and launching in May.

    Glad you all are enjoying the “Heroine Legends” world! 3 more worlds are coming soon so stay tuned!!

    Logan

  16. I was just wondering the women who are in the series right now will be a part of “The Torture Chamber” right or are you bringing other people in

  17. mblostprophet

    My guess would be both. I like what they had to say about it before, the idea it could be “friends” of the heroine as well as girl wonder herself. lol

    Based on everything I can gather, this studio has the best startup/gameplan I’ve seen. Very professional all the way around.

    I honestly can’t wait to see what the torture chamber is going to be like. I hope these will include high quality, “color” video footage. The reason I say “color” is I”m worried that it might be given an effect to seem like a “secuirty camera footage”, which is a GREAT idea, although quality of the video has to be there too :P

    My thoughts

  18. Fabio

    Torture chamber sounds just like my kinda thing lol but I just hope it isnt exactly security camera footage, Id hate to be watching from the corner of the room while the action is somewhat far, Id like to be up close. But this would be so perfect for belly punches and low blows. Great way to torture a heroine without being bloody and extremely violent right? Cant wait.

  19. Bill: The four current actresses will not be in the initial installments of “The Torture Chamber”. The concept behind “TTC” is that these are the girls who are friends of the SuperHeroines, know information about them, or have something to offer or lose and have been kidnapped or tricked into coming here. Initially, upon launch, none will be in any sort of costumes either– it wouldn’t make any sense to have that. As our series continues, and “The Heroine Academy” & “Candidate Files” launches, you will see more costumes and current characters in this section. Trust me when I tell you that we are in no shortage of beautiful women for this series – or our other 3 series which are launching this summer!

    mblostprophet: Do not worry about color – we are not going to have any grey or green overlays on the footage. It will be a 3-camera setup, all in color, output similar to our Episodes. You will see the Red REC on the screen which will be the only main addition to show you it’s a camera feed. The biggest difference here is that there is no camera motion – only camera switching – which will give the feel of being there watching it actually happening as opposed to watching a film. Should be interesting, we think. If it doesn’t work, we know you guys will let us know and we can always mold and change – that’s all part of growing. :)

    Fabio: The 3 cameras are all at different distances. Some are zoomed in, some are far away. There won’t be any extreme close-ups like in the Episodes. Again, the purpose of this section of our series is to focus on the peril as you would see it – watching it like you were the one who ordered it to happen from the next room over. No blood of course. ;)
