Falcon has a history of exploiting the erotic allure of initiation rites and clandestine trysts. This video carries on that tradition with a tale of 10 young men invited to an exclusive country lodge for an unknown purpose. It turns out that their elusive host (Matt Gunther) plans on making use of them one by one, starting with the appropriately pliant Cort Stevens (who never looked more succulent).
But these aren't the kind of guys who wait to be asked to dance; even before their introductory formal dinner, they start pairing off (Hunter Scott exploits Vince Rockland's long foreskin with a fetishist's delight), and after the banquet it's a lip-smacking orgy for dessert.
By Invitation Only gets multiple A's for atmosphere — shadowy, sexy, slightly menacing — and ditto for flawless casting, so long as viewers will accept the elfin Gunther in his most dominant role to date. The atmosphere reaches its apex in the master's taming of Stevens, with some gorgeously lurid lighting and camerawork. The climactic orgy is exceptionally well-staged, with Brad Hunt a stand-out, though it's hapless Scott Wilder who ends up being plowed when all the invitees line up to bury their bones and splatter their seed across his back one after the other — a tour de force for director John Rutherford. At the end, viewers are left to imagine the succeeding nights as Gunther invites the guests up to his lair, one by one.
Smart retailers shouldn't need an invitation to stock up on this solid offering.
