The Film
There's so much to love in this compilation of vintage 8mm adult loops. Beautiful women, sleazy situations, the feeling of being in a seedy peep show booth without leaving the comfort of your own couch... ahhh paradise. You don't even have to find the ads in the sex magazines to own these anymore! You can enjoy the scenes including girls enjoying a used condom a little too much, multiple fun-in-the-tub scenes, a knife wielding intruder, more group sex than you can shake a stick at and plenty more. The surprises are half the fun so I won't spoil them all.

Smut fans are really lucky in 2014 as there are multiple companies putting out quality releases of the vintage stuff and this series of compilations of silent short loops from Impulse Pictures is among the best of those releases. It's hard to believe that they're already up to volume five but here we are. And the world is a little better off for these releases.

The Audio & Video
Impulse Pictures has done what they can with these loops as they didn't look pretty to begin with. They're beaten, battered and loved. There's scratches throughout but every loop is perfectly enjoyable and watchable. The 8mm photography is inherently soft but colors still look good and overall quality is suprisingly decent on these thanks to being remastered in HD. As with the previous volumes in this series, the shorts are silent with the exception of the film projector sound effect.

The Extras
Fantastic liner notes from Robin Bougie, editor of Cinema Sewer are included

The Bottom Line
The past is brought to present day with these releases and I highly recommend fans of porn and sleaze add this volume to their growing collection.
