With The Devil in Miss Jones, the hardcore porno feature approaches an ‘art form’. For its genre, the pic is a sensation, marked by a technical polish that pales some Hollywood product and containing some of the most frenzied and erotic sex sequences in porno memory.
Written, directed and edited by Gerard Damiano, the man who dittoed on Deep Throat (under his Jerry Gerard pseudonym), this ambitious meller delivers in spades.
A thirtyish virgin, Justine Jones (Georgina Spevlin), commits suicide and is condemned to eternal damnation. Her suicide has been the only damnable act in a lonely, despairing life, and to make herself ‘worthy’ of the punishment meted out to her, Jones requests a little more time in which to experiment with and to be consumed by lust.
Georgina Spevlin lacks the specific sexpertise of Linda Lovelace and she’s no conventional beauty. Male performers are familiar porno vets, with the exception of Damiano himself who appears, under the name of Albert Gork, in pic’s hellish finale.
