Do you guys know the crossover Indian-American porn star Priya Anjali Rai? She's quite filthy and frankly, a joy to watch, whatever your ethnic preferences may be. Recently, the longtime stripper turned adult actress has apparently cut her hair, got hitched to some wealthy businessman and subsequently announced her retirement from the scene, so as to develop her mainstream actin career. I believe Lisa Palenica's unsold project Isis Rising: Curse Of The Lady Mummy (2013) is Priya's first movie in that direction.
At a glance:
|Porn star Priya Rai goes mainstream in Isis Rising. Still flashes boobs, though.|
|I wished the movie sucked. Literally.|
Bad news on the doorstep:
|"Why did I quit porn? Whyyy?"|
Milfy Priya Rai is the mother of two children. If somethin good did come out of this sad excuse of a movie, I guess they can both watch mummy's movie together with her this time, eh? Ahh... God works in mysterious ways.
|"It says... you will star in... many bad movies... before you meet a cougar producer..."|
|Priya Rai: 12 years on the stripjoint circuit.|
Reminds me of:That movie with Mallika Sherawat, Hisss (2010) for some reason.
I can't remember if I cried:The CG work is very Power Rangers. It's hard to stay interested after seein the first few attempts.
Most memorable line:
This is the kind of movie that could've been watched on mute and on fast-forward, so don't expect any standout writin.
Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?In all fairness, at least they didn't take themselves so seriously. It's a silly little fantasy with some savin grace e.g. some actors like Jing Song and Shellie Ulrich definitely didn't make it any worse, given the circumstances. However, the fact that there's no nudity in the package makes this one a curious little project indeed. Why did they make it? Oh, well.
