Cecil Howard's "Last X-Rated Movie"

Exclusively on HotMovies.com

PHILADELPHIA – The “grand master of erotic filmmaking” is back on HotMovies.com, just in time to celebrate his birthday on Feb. 26.

Few directors have made the impact of Cecil Howard throughout the history of the adult movie business, and few movies made the impact of Howard’s epic four-hour saga, Last X-Rated Movie. Now for the first time, this landmark film will be available on the internet in its entirety, exclusively at HotMovies.com.

As was typical of all Howard’s work, Last X-Rated Movie received huge acclaim when originally released in four parts during the 1980s and early 1990s. The first two parts each garnered AVN’s highest rating and the magazine named the saga “the best multi-part adult series ever shot on video.”

In the golden age of porn, before compilations became the order of the day, this was the longest adult movie ever released. It was condensed, re-edited and repackaged by Howard in 1991 into the definitive four-hour director’s cut on VHS, exclusively for the Penthouse Book and Video Society. The re-release again earned AVN’s highest rating and prompting another critic to name it “the best X-rated movie of all time.”

Eric Edwards won AVN’s Best Actor award and Nina Hartley took home AVN’s Best Supporting Actress trophy for the original production, which featured an unmatched collection of golden era talent including hall of famers Ron Jeremy, Tom Byron, Tasha Voux and Sharon Mitchell.

In the past, Howard’s HotMovies releases have hit the site as special, one-month-only releases. Not this time. Howard said he wants fans to have the opportunity to view this masterpiece, cut as he originally intended it, for eternity. “This is a grand opus and I encourage people to take the time to watch the whole thing,” said the elusive Howard. “The story is the thing that sets it apart from other porn movies and the sex is some of the hottest I ever shot.”

“As always,” said HotMovies director of business development James Cybert, “we are grateful for this partnership with Cecil. We take great pride in carrying the biggest library of porn available anywhere but quality means more than quantity and Cecil’s movies are the cream of the crop. The Last X-Rated Movie is the best of the best and I can’t wait to hear the reaction from our viewers.”

HotMovies remains the one and only licensed distributor for Howard’s work, including multiple award winners Neon Nights, Babylon Pink, Foxtrot, Star Angel and Platinum Paradise.

coming soon: Cecil Howard's October Silk

PHILADELPHIA – HotMovies.com announced today the release of its eighth exclusive classic from the famed but nearly impossible to find Command Cinema library. October Silk will premiere on the popular VOD site just in time for the month for which it was named.

Once again, legendary Producer/Director Cecil Howard agreed with HotMovies to screen the film in Pay-Per-Minute and streaming rental formats for an exclusive one-month run. Like most of Howard’s highly regarded movies from the 1980s, Silk has never seen a DVD release so those without a rare VHS or Beta copy will finally have the chance to view it, but only during the month of October.

“Howard’s movies are all special,” said HotMovies director of business development James Cybert. “They all have the right mix of plotting and eroticism, just enough lead-in to get the audience invested for the good stuff. What we really liked about this one is the amazing lineup of ten golden age starlets at their absolute hottest.”

Featuring a gorgeous cast of ’80s talent headlined by Abigail Clayton, Candida Royale, Howard favorite Samantha Fox, and redhead bombshell Lisa DeLeuew, the movie took home Hustler’s prize for Film of the Year in 1981 and was also voted as the top movie of the year by the magazine’s fans and the NY Critics Group.

Gloria Leonard, Arcadia Lake, Merle Michaels, Christine de Schaeffer, Christie Ford and Tara Smith round out the gorgeous cast of workers and guests at the naughty boutique that serves as the main setting in the film, which was produced by Howard and directed by late porn legend Henri Pachard.

Premiering originally in 1981, Silk shows off the duo’s eye for the naughty niche. Secretary sex? Check. Naughty nurse? Check. Dominatrix? Check. Cheerleaders? You bet. Not to mention a climax worthy of the term as one man gets all he can handle for the trio of voluptuous vixens.

The movie, said Howard, came about because of the success of another movie you will find exclusively on HotMovies.com. “I was having lunch with Henri Pachard one day and we decided for kicks to team up and make a movie together. The result was the famous, award-winning Babylon Pink. Because of the humongous success we had with that, we decided to go at it one more time.”

Additional HotMovies exclusives from Command Cinema include Dangerous Stuff, Neon Nights, Platinum Paradise, Scoundrels, Star Angel, The Last X-Rated Movie and Foxtrot.
