Atlantis Studio’s Paula Peril series has been around for quite a while but hasn’t been featured at Heroine Movies until now. It’s fairly different from the usual fetish-related content featured here but is nonetheless very entertaining, well made and certainly worth discussing.
Paula Peril chronicles the adventures of the titular Paula Perillo (a.k.a. Paula Peril). The character is basically a take off of Lois Lane. Paula is a fearless reporter for a newspaper called “The Daily Gazette,” and she even has a Jimmy Olsen-like partner at her side. The character of Paula is played by Valerie Perez, who, as it turns out, is not only a model and actress but also a well-known cosplayer. Feel free to search for her name, and you’ll find dozens of pictures of her in various heroine outfits.
As for the site itself, they have released three films and are currently producing a fourth. Each successive film is better and longer than the last. The plots are straightforward and usually feature Paula chasing down a big story. They also sell comic books at the site. I personally have not read any, but they allow you to download previews, and the comics look to be professionally done.
Now, even though the word “peril” is in the title and web address, don’t think you’re in for a Zen Pictures type of experience. The type of peril you’re going to get is Paula tied up to a barrel of hazardous chemicals that is surrounded by fire. You won’t be getting bearhugs or low blows at this site. One thing many of you may enjoy is the wardrobe choice for the lead. They dress the character of Paula up in knee high boots, a short skirt, and apparently the tightest red sweater they could find. She wears all three very well and the outfit has gotten a bit shredded at times in some of the films.
Truthfully, the production values are what make the movies on this site pop. This is (relatively) big budget, independent filmmaking, and the production work they do probably surpasses the best efforts of Zen Pictures. If you buy any of their films, especially the most recent ones, you will get solid acting, good special effect work, excellent writing, and great locations.
Feel free to leave your opinion in the comments section if this site is of any interest. If so, we may attempt to review some of the individual episodes in the near future.
