Damien, if you’re still checking this thread, is the plan still for Uninvited 7 to drop at the end of July or early August?

I love the idea of a consensual super heroine movie. The industry is full of rape porn and that’s not really my thing. I hope to see more of this.

Here’s my feedback on this film. Regarding the fight sequence, I don’t have a great deal to say. I thought that it was perfectly fine, but not a selling point for me. I liked the use of special effects. And I liked that there wasn’t an extended beat-down scene, since that always seems tedious to me. My own preference for fight scenes in SHIP productions (Though this technically isn’t a SHIP production.) is that they fall into one of two categories – either a back and forth between the heroine and villain/villainess, with both getting their shots in and the… Read more »

Logistics question – if we pre-ordered this, how do we get the film?

Thanks Damien. I emailed you. The link I got for the preorder doesnt work anymore – likely since I clicked on it and got the preview and didn’t click on it again till today.

I’ve pre-ordered a lot of your films and love what you do. This one wasn’t really my cup of tea but it certainly won’t put me off to your future stuff. I’m glad you’re not getting hurt financially from taking a chance; maybe now more studios will try new things too.

I understand if it is personal or confidential, but now I am super interested. Any chance you can give us updates on how well the film is selling relative to other films. Keep in mind even if this was your typical rape video, I don’t think it would sell as well as an Ashley Lane video. And the Supergirl costume was much better than this costume as well.

So, I watched it, and it’s good/entertaining, but I think you may have overemphasized how different it is SHL. I know you probably did that because you were concerned about the reaction, but in my opinion it’s not too different. There’s some peril at the beginning, and a whole lot of fucking. Consensual fucking (in ripped tights and a leotard), sure, but unless I’m mistaken at times in past Uninvited videos, the heroine does sometimes get into it at certain points. I was hoping that there’d be more dialogue, lovemaking (it does really feel much more like fucking), and acting.… Read more »

I thought the video was all right, but nothing that special. I agree with @Masmune’s initial point, that this is not as different from other material as suggested. I’d also encourage you to push further in the direction you appear to be going, really leaning into the drama of a superheroine “surrendering” herself to intimacy with someone.

Enough is enough. I wasn’t going to comment in this topic. However, I support SHL’s work and some of the comments from individuals are uncalled for and hypocritical. First, everyone needs to take a step back. Comments of “This is just porn” are insulting to the artist. Some of you want a rape scene instead of a consensual scene. If that is your fetish, then you have every right to have that fetish. However, to discount his man’s work as “just porn” in a degrading manner is just ignorance. If a SHIP movie with a rape scene has sex, then… Read more »

From the sound of your response I inadvertently hit a tender spot. I won’t apologize for my opinion, however I didn’t mean to offend. I never stated producers aren’t responsible for the content they make. They make the films. My statements inferred the hypocrisy of statements like “keep in mind this is a custom” when it comes to criticism—thus shifting blame to the unidentified person(s) who ordered the work—yet, basking in praise without a nameless thank you to the person who wrote the script. This might read like, “it was a pleasure filming the great script we received.” It was… Read more »

I would agree, and glad the model is working for you. Looking forward to seeing your next films.

Hi, on a more serious note, why does everyone or at least most everyone refer to the girls, actually women as models when they are really actors. Obviously they do have act, especially selling peril.

Ha! That’s a valid point. Probably because people associate beauty with models? That and I believe many of the early day films were models who tried out acting. Interesting question.

was going well but frankly the sex just wasnt all that. the fight scene was good at the beginning but it could just be that this actress is not the one to venture out into uncharted waters with. was almost boring. this certainy isnt a hit on you the producer just the talent may not be the right one. also didnt have any oral which really adds to the story line in my opinion. not my bag after all but worth the investment for you to try new stuff. thanks

It did seem to go on a bit. I think the emotional issues were set up well enough in the beginning, but the development was too subtle. Perhaps the performance choices were too subtle, or it wasn’t clear to them what to express or how to express it. So it seemed like they just had sex for a while, and then the ending seemed arbitrary, abrupt, and befuddling — despite setting up their feelings up front. Only after reading the summary above did I understand their final actions. But I see what you were going for — it could even… Read more »

I’m not going to retype what I said because anyone can properly read it. It’s anyone’s choice to actually read my original comment or not. Of course there are porn genres. I also NEVER said porn fit into one little box. That was explained and won’t be repeated. I also never said Invited was a SHIP movie. I also never said wearing a costume automatically makes the movie SHIP. I’m going to educate you on this subject. Yes, Invited is a porn movie with two actors having sex on camera. Use common sense and realize it is a FACT that… Read more »

Saying a video is porn is like saying a movie is a drama: there is a ton coveted by the genre label. And in the end, what’s the point in giving the broad label anyhow?

It was amusing to read the line “I’m going to educate you on this subject.” I’ll need some qualifications for that level of expertise on the topic. Is there a Ph.D (Pornhub Doctorate?) in this field? And that aforementioned comment doesn’t come across as odd or pretentious at all.

GeekyPornCritic, you are a hypocrite and if anyone could benefit from reading your post it would be you. I won’t bother highlighting why, because I don’t care all that much, but if you can’t see why it’s sad. You’re nitpicking to make your “point” disregarding rather obvious conclusions. Word of advice: get off your high horse before you fall and hurt yourself.

Yes dude, it’s just porn. Meaning Superhero Peril is a subset of porn. This concept is a move out of the subset and back up to the main category of porn. Whether that analysis is correct or incorrect, it certainly is not insulting. Especially when one is asked their opinion.

Superheroine Peril with sex is also just porn and is part of the “main” category of porn. Invited and Uninvited are both just porn movies. However, both movies are in slightly different porn genres. It’s ridiculous that such basic information must be explain to a community that refuses to believe their movies are porn. That’s common sense.

Still on this? What outcome do you want from this topic of video defining?

HeroineFall avatar

Your videos are always high quality, and I appreciate you as an artist. Here is my take on this experiment: First of all, there is nothing wrong with it. I’ve been around SHiP now for many, many years and have seen all manner of video variations. Even if a film contains peril elements there is heavy debate around the content. Everything is subjective, from the individual perspectives of each viewer. From my standpoint, almost every Primal video is “just porn in costume” and boring to me. Some have said the modern era of SHiP lacks story, and I would have… Read more »

You have it backwards. Content isn’t narrowing because of the few patrons, but because of the several buyers. Buyers double-down on what they like and shun what they don’t. Buyers complain about putting the star in a gas mask, using the white-t-shirt costume, bush sticking out, a costume that’s too sexy / unrealistic (FFS!), having too much X and hardly any Y and no Z. At best they politely pass from anything that doesn’t push their genre-staple button. Patrons are funding experimentation. Buyers are rewarding what’s popular. Popularity drives sameness. Wondie and Supes dominated content long before the popular producers… Read more »

@SHL – I am reluctant to add to the pervasive negativity of the internet, but you did ask for feedback. I got hooked on the SHIP genre some years back when there were intelligent, imaginative scripts with interesting characters, plots, and locations. I have not been happy with the trend, fueled by custom videos, towards porn in costume. It seems to me that the great majority of recent videos in the genre have, instead of a plot, a dreary sequence of predictable events: heroine beats up villain, then villain beats up heroine, then they have sex, the end. I purchased… Read more »

I have no doubt that there’s an audience for this.
But I do wonder how much of that audience will be turned off by association with your other works.

Yeah it’s kind of like you have it backwards. Somehow make this film and sort of advertise it in the mainstream and you will end up pulling more people into your peril fan base. But making the film here with your already established peril fan base seems bad. maybe get less purchasers because people are looking for peril. BUT… if there is some way to advertise it elsewhere you might gain new loyal followers… And if it is a flop you could eventually give it away for free on Pornhub or something like that with snipets of your other movies… Read more »

Well I saw it and I get what you were doing and I think you would have a market for this in mainstream porn. I think you were upfront about what this is and I think you were totally honest about it and I hope it does well for you but it is not my cup of tea. I am very much looking forward to your other projects.

I preordered this for two main reasons:

1. It’s different. Generally speaking, I think a lot of the videos in this genre follow a handful of well established formulas. So, I’m curious to see something different. Ideas of intimacy seems more interesting than standard fare, and I’m keen to see the result.

2. I trust SHL’s work. The last Uninvited video was fantastic, and his work is always high quality.

So, I’m curious to see what you’ve cooked up here, and I’ll be happy to provide feedback. Do you have a preferred medium?

I’m looking forward to it!

I preordered as well, mainly for the first reason you mentioned. I have a couple of the Uninvited videos and they weren’t exactly my thing, but I’m quite curious to see something different here.

I’ll also be happy to provide feedback. Even if I eventually find I don’t care for it, I’m grateful to SHL for trying something new.

I’m thinking that the sales figures of this film will be an indication of the number of women who are into superheroine porn, as it is clear that Power Woman is the point-of-view character. Or at least, woman who frequent this site, assuming here is where most of your marketing efforts are directed. It would be a very different film if the sidekick was the POV character, even if most of the scenes remained unchanged. The film would start with the sidekick checking her out whenever he thinks she isn’t looking, and saving her life because of genuine love at… Read more »

I absolutely love this idea. So much. I fully understand why it might find a difficult time sticking to the wall with a lot of the audience but I find the concept and imaginative chance taking very inspiring. It must be so refreshing to work on a project like this. I hope it does well, and even if it doesn’t- I hope it at least breaks even so that you can enjoy having worked on something so different without personal loss.

Bravo.

So I think this is brave and interesting concept to attempt. And I appreciate a producer who is willing to take such drastic change when it might not pan out at all financially. However, I think about the general audience I observe here over the years I have watched without commenting. And If I had to categorize fans of the SHIP genre most prevalent on this site. I would put them into two categories: 1. Action and combat based super heroine peril. This includes all forms of ship where the majority of the sexual content is suggestive in nature and… Read more »

I think playing around with the superheroine dynamic is interesting. I commend you for expanding your horizons. This release doesn’t sound like it’s up my alley, personally, but it’s a new take. It seems to go too far into the polar opposite direction from a rape/peril scene. I think you’d have more success with a middle ground. I’m all for female empowerment in sex scenes and it’s definitely hot when a peril scene isn’t so static and one-dimensional. I often enjoy it when lines are blurred and resentment turns into acceptance and even enjoyment. Perhaps turning the tables and using… Read more »

I don’t think it is going to work. It is basically just regular porn. It for sure would work if you get a hot actress and make like a season. Some episodes she’s being beat up and raped by the mob, some episodes she banging her sidekick, some days shes gotta suck the mayors dick. With some kind of story wove throughout the season that gets us hooked, then when we grow to know and understand the character and the consentual sex scenes will seem more like a superheroine is doing it rather than a porn actress wearing a uniform… Read more »

I’ve been a customer of yours since uninvited 2. Probably not as long as many others so maybe my opinion doesn’t carry any weight. But here goes anyway. You’re pretty much the bar when it comes to SHIP films. Very few other producers do it was well as you do. So when you post about possibly changing genre (which is exactly what this film is. It is not SHIP it is regular porn with a super hero) I say no thanks. It’s not why I follow your posts it’s not why I buy your films. I’m not trying to be… Read more »
