The 12th edition of the Adam Film World Directory of Adult Films represents the
ever changing face and form of the adult movie industry. These days X-rated manufacturers
are putting out more titles than ever as prices drop and consumer demand increases.Now
it becomes imperative for an erotic movie fan to find out what's good and bad
in the overwhelming glut of product in the marketplace. Don't begin this book
until you read what amounts to our code of erotic ethics.
We proudly state our case for being the one source of ethics and integrity in
adult video review commentary. That is why this book has become the bible on adult
film criticism. While we acknowledge that movie criticism is a subjective medium,
our acceptance by the consumers proves we know whereof we speak. There are all
new full reviews of 387 top adult movies in the main Reviews section, plus more
than 1000 encapsulated reviews of classic and highly rated movies we have reviewed
in the past in The Best of The Rest section. The movies have been picked for a
number of reasons, the obvious one being they are, in our opinion, excellent examples
of erotic entertainment. Others have been included for their historical significance,
and many for a variety of special features they contain. Many older titles, lower
rated movies and features out of circulation have been eliminated.
This year, due to the increased interest in CD-ROMS, Amateur and Fetish material,
we have assembled a pro-active Directory of these types of releases to better
aid you in your search for something in these fields. Rating these categories
proves a difficult and pointless task. While one can comment on an erotic film,
CD-ROMS, Fetish and Amateur material has an appeal all its own. And each and every
company and release we list offers something for everyone interested.
The emphasis of this Directory continues to be on feature films and videos for
their general appeal as well as the erotic factor. Of course, the movies differ
in degree of effectiveness, so our ratings guide is based on two essential elements.
Eroticism is graded as Warm, Hot, or Volcanic. A movie that be highly rated for
technical and professional reasons may still receive a Warm rating. On the other
hand, a picture that is not very good for technical reasons may be Volcanic in
its sexual intensity and delivery. We hope that singling out both aspects of a
production will help you shape your erotic viewing choices.
The following legend is a brief breakdown of our star ratings:
***** A time-tested classic that no collector should be without.
**** An excellent picture, combining good production with superbly crafted sex.
*** A very good, highly entertaining product.
** An otherwise good erotic movie that has several major flaws.
* Not a very good show, but it may have some appeal because of subject matter.
In the Awards section, prize-winning movies, classics and Hall of Fame films and
members are identified. The Performers Directory includes profiles of major performers
and their best credits. We are proud to say this section is truly a book within
a book. We have focused on more than 200 full bios of stars, concentrating on
current favorites, plus a few all-time greats. Directors who have contributed
to the development of erotic pictures are listed in the Moviemakers Index along
with a selection of their best movies. Our Theme Index should prove helpful to
anyone who has a special interest to satisfy. The Source Directory is a full listing
of companies by the products or services they provide. The Retail Sources will
help you find local outlets to rent and purchase the adult videos reviewed in
The most complete, legitimate and widely respected directory of this nature ever
published, Adam Film World's Directory Of Adult Films is designed to give you
full access to the ever-expanding adult movie industry.
