Evil Angel’s ‘Pure’ Streets Tomorrow

Ariana Rodriguez
VAN NUYS, Calif. — Evil Angel will release “Pure,” starring Asa Akira, on Wednesday as part of its Prime Evil line.

The Japanese-American star is joined by Asian male performer Keni Styles in the movie that tells the story of Sada Abe, a woman with a troubled past that takes a job answering phones at a Los Angeles fetish dungeon. The dungeon is exclusively staffed by Asian women.

Sada falls into an affair with Kichi, the husband and business partner of the head mistress. “Shutting out all others, the pair embarks on an insular existence of constant sexual experimentation and S/M ritual ... a tenuous fantasy world shattered by real-life consequences,” the company said of “Pure.”

The movie is director David Aaron Clark’s first project for Evil Angel. The dark romance is based on the legendary real-life Japanese sex scandal that inspired the 1976 film “In The Realm of the Senses.”

The movie also stars Jessica Bangkok, Lana Violet, Mr. Marcus, Valentino and Destiny. Evil Angel director Jake Malone makes a rare on-camera appearance.

"I was surprised and pleased when John asked me to do a project for Evil Angel,” Clark said. “Thanks to his policy of putting the creative options in the director’s hands, I was able to work with an extended shooting schedule manned by a small but extremely dedicated, tuned-in crew, as opposed to the way porn features are usually shot.

"This allowed space for Asa and Keni to get increasingly comfortable and familiar with each other — we shot in roughly chronological order, so the progress of their increasingly kinky and intense on-screen affair has a very real feel. I think it's great to actually have an Asian male lead in an 'Asian-themed' title, much less a dynamic, smart, sexy fellow like Keni. Also, Asa gave one of the best female lead performances I've ever seen in adult."

Clark has previously directed for Evil Angel General Manager Christian Mann he was running Metro Interactive and Video Team.

"This is our first Prime Evil release since I've been here, so I'm very pleased,” Mann said. “We have more than the hard gonzo so many people equate with Evil Angel. Our movies are as diverse as the personalities of the directors on our roster.

“In the case of David Aaron Clark, my prior experience with his movies was a good one. His work yielded many award-winning Asian features, a category that David made uniquely his own. I can attest that his style is unlike anything else out there. I'm hopeful that his prior success coupled with the power of the Evil Angel brand will make ‘Pure’ a commercial and critical hit."

The trailer for “Pure” is available at EvilAngel.com and at the movie's site page EvilDistributor.com/pure. The deluxe Prime Evil DVD, with O-card packaging, is a two-disc set that includes behind-the-scenes footage, extensive photo galleries and interviews with the director and cast.
