Based on a classic Twilight Zone episode called 'To Serve Man', our story opens a few years after the alien race called the Kanamits have landed on Earth. During this time, the Kanamits have proven to be extremely helpful to the entire human race. Militaries and borders have been dissolved. Poverty, disease and all the harsh realities of life are now a thing of the past with the technology that the Kanamits have brought. Oddly, these creatures have seemed to ask for no favor in return, except to invite selected humans to come live with them on their planet every few months. People are at ease and cared for, grateful for the gifts that have been brought from another galaxy. Some, however, do not trust the Kanamits. Galva Freeman is one of these people, and has reason to believe that the intentions of these extraterrestrials are not so pure. Galva's aunt, who worked for the US Embassy, vanished after discovering some disturbing news about what these aliens were really up to. Galva leads a group of skeptics and eventually finds herself detained by the Kanamits. She is about to learn the truth about the ultimate goal that the aliens have.

This one's epic, probably the most well done clip I've seen here & actually being honest here... just as good if not better than the stuff mainstream TV's coming up with these days. And if you're like me, having a deeper story & more fleshed out characters (pun intended :D) actually than just the fetish stuff makes the payoff a lot more satisfactory.

And, yes, don't want to spoil it, there's plenty of juicy scenes in it.

When I knew this film was on its way, I actually refreshed the DelishMedia site every other hour until it was posted, and once it was, purchased it on the spot. It ended up being exactly as I’d hoped, and is just such an extraordinary production. For reasons I don’t fully understand, I felt compelled all this time later to come back here just to say:

Holy shit! You know? I mean, The Garden is utterly fucking incredible. On so many levels. It’s the culmination of so much of Agatha’s hard work, not just on this one shoot, but across the whole Delish Media enterprise. One can see in The Garden, clear as day, how far she has come as a filmmaker, as an actor’s director, and as a distiller of this very weird, very fun fetish. All the kinky buttons pressed with precision and force. Shot framing like a pro. Getting the actors to deliver better than in any scripted porn I’ve ever seen. And that itself speaks to what a skilled producer she has become! Knowing which performers to put in which parts, thereby avoiding let-downs from asking a lesser actor to deliver a performance they can’t. Jolene in the lead was without question the right performer for the job, one of the top fetish actors working right now. All strengths played to across all roles (my apologies for not being familiar with their names). And one director putting them all in that position to succeed. It merits a second “Holy shit!”

I’ve spent thousands of dollars and nearly as many years chasing down videos/films that play to this peculiar kink. I know very well the excitement of believing, based on a preview or description, that I’ve finally found one that REALLY scratches this itch. And I’m very familiar with the disappointment that so often follows once the work is obtained and viewed - that all the best parts were in the preview, that the synopsis describes things implied rather than shown, that the writers or directors or actors just don’t “get” the sexiness of it - and the itch remains mostly or wholly unscratched. Fetish producers that have cropped up in recent years have at least made the kink the focus and have doled out some quality relevant work. But none of them can stab a stiletto heel so squarely on the limbic nerve of the cannibal fetish quite like Agatha can and has. I felt compelled to post this because, with The Garden, that excitement for a film actually came to fruition as I’d always hoped, and it dawned on me that i hadn’t even said thank you. The itch is scratched so hard, the skin is blistered and needs time to heal before coming back for more.

Thank you, to Agatha, and to the whole team that put such an involved masterpiece together in the middle of this little annoyance called the worst global health crisis in a century. Your game is unparalleled. You are a prime mover in the world of this kink. I’ve been lurking on this site and in this community since before the Mukis opened their kitchen, and your work has absolutely been worth the wait.

Thanks again, and bon apetite!

I told her some things I liked about it, but not nearly as eloquently as you did.
That's why I hit "love" on your post. But what we really need for posts like that is an "applause" button.
Maybe instead of the "barefoot" emoji, which I have absolutely no comprehension of what its theoretical usage is even supposed to be.

That's really nice, Yukon, thanks. There are a lot of things that bug me and I did not have the skill/time/budget/crew power/set/fx or equipment to pull off and I cannot watch it because it makes me mad. But I am glad people are enjoying it. I hope to do better in the future with the next feature.
Jolene is not human. She is a Valkyrie. Her and I wrestle to train all the time. She is the strongest woman I have ever met in my life and I always know I'm in for a sweaty, intense roll when we grapple. And her charisma is not of humanity. I knew she would be able to carry the role. And the others delivered well also. I'm lucky to be able to work with people like that.

We need to figure out a way somehow to make productions like these more viable. The Garden really hits pretty close actually. There's a really big gap of well-budgeted mainstream style movies that doesn't hold back on female nudity & a little bit of gore. Usually, you get violence with US flicks but no full nudity (or it's the dudes who get the worst part), and the Europeans who don't have the gore but nudity galore. And sometimes, the Japanese will try, but their live action productions leave a lot to be desired. If "The Garden" can get that sort of traction then maybe it could be worth-while to do another movie that could one-up this one in the future.

I mean, I'm kind of reminded of why I like some of the old-school porn that were actually movies that had a plot, as some of them were actually kind of good or at least fun. Some even did some interesting things with camera angles and other photography things. I love the fact that this is inspired by an old episode of the Twilight Zone and a crappy remake of it.

I guess doing something "mainstream" would kind of depend on what you're talking about. Are you still talking porn, or an actual honest-to-god movie that would have to be run by the MPAA and be shown in theaters? Making porn would be a tough sell, because anything that costs more than what you could put together and film with a smartphone might have a tough time turning a profit, what with the niche nature of this fetish, after all, and the fact that we tend to get stomped on by even the other snuff fetishes (like vampires and such). As for regular movies, well the sexual aspects tend to have to be toned down to get by the MPAA if you hope to get even an R-rating. Seems to me there was a pretty good documentary about that kind of thing, actually. Still, it's surprising that for as many times cannibalism (or whatever you'd call it when say a monster or an alien would eat a human or human-looking alien), you don't see many women get eaten or even much female nudity in it. The only ones I know about were stuff like Cannibal Holocaust which tended to get X-ratings anyway. Though come to think of it, I guess there was a very brief, more recent example with a movie called Cloud Atlas. But it was very brief and in the distance from what I remember.

Alternatively, one could try to sell a cable channel like HBO or Showtime on the idea, or one of the streaming services that's willing to do nudity. I have a feeling you'd run into the same reluctance to depict the kinds of things we're looking for, though. Maybe I'm just being a Negative Nancy about it. :confused:

It should be possible to produce a movie that hits the right buttons for us and fits into the mainstream:

First, consider how excited we all get when anything remotely cannibal is found somewhere… and how much mainstream movies/adverts/pop videos get away with when they're not overtly one thing or another. Kikkoman had no problem putting a pretty girl in a pot and sprinkling her with sauce because they were advertising the sauce not the sex.

In short, put in all the things that are popular with us, minus the focus on the nether regions, and wrap it up in a mainstream story with an interesting angle.

So many mainstream films already come close to what you need. Have a premise that allows for numerous sexy, but not sexual, on-topic scenes and you’re on to something.

I'm not talking about going into normie-world, but more I'm talking about raising the quality level within our fetish. Yes, we're a little stuck with the label but let's embrace it... why not elevate ourselves in our theater? Instead of inserting porn into mainstream, why not insert story into porn?

I remember in 2014-16, there was a period where mainstream was actually heading into bold & dark subjects. We've just got 2 very on-topic Spanish movies in Omnivoros & Canibal, we just had Bad Batch, Eli Roth was about to make his "Thanksgiving" movie and who knows what future Hostel sequels would dare go into... and we were smack right in the middle of Hannibal the series which almost feels like it could go into great places... but what happened to them now? Quality of shows you see now has dropped drastically since then because now everyone's afraid of cancel culture. It's as if the whole world has gone Disney. So the mainstream industry suffers, maybe the niche fetishes could pick up that slack. Hell, some of your fetish stories LT are even so much better than the dross out there that keeps winning literary awards.

So from what I see in "The Garden" it actually does that & some other examples like Axel Braun's superhero porn parodies. Being better than what mainstream puts out. I try that with my art & comics too that is just as good if not better than current day Marvel/DC. We're actually completely free in how we tell our stories because we have fewer restrictions than those in the mainstream. But because we're fetish, it's a challenge to get a consumers to buy our work. This part we need to figure out.

I appreciate the compliment, though I have to admit I don't always know how to feel when my stories get compliments like that. Really I'm just writing my own fantasies that pop into my head (and even the occasional dream), and a lot of times they are based on some other movie or TV show or something, and I just change things to be in line with my own tastes. Funny thing is, probably the reason my writing stands out some is that I wrote an awful lot of Star Trek fan-fiction back in the day, including some smut that I even got help and pointers on from some ladies who also wrote Star Trek "erotica." I even submitted one of these stories for my final portfolio in the creative writing class I took (believe it or not Engineering classes require this class) and got an A on it, even though the instructor came right out and said that it's basically porn. :laugh:

I would say that your stuff is certainly better than current day Marvel and DC, though. The thing is, modern mainstream comics do not value good artwork anymore. Not to get too political, but I feel confident in saying that the people running comics will (and have) turned their noses up at good artwork because of politics, with part of that being that they don't want to depict women as being attractive anymore. I'll pick on Captain Marvel a bit here to make my point, because whereas in the initial switch-over of her being this curvaceous, long-haired woman in a leotard to her modern look, she was still depicted as attractive and feminine, just that she was fit, athletic, and had short hair now (totally my type, incidentally), more recently she's become very androgynous in appearance, and actually looks more like a skinny man than a woman.

I wish I knew the answer to the problem you pose, though. Truth is, people have been pretty spoiled by the internet as far as getting free porn, and I'm not immune from that myself. Back in the day, you had to buy magazines, or order tapes from mail-in catalogues, and now you can just head over to a site like PornHub and watch hardcore porn for free, so I can understand how it can be pretty difficult to make a profit on anything, and why the old school porn I liked just isn't a thing anymore. I kind of wished I could make porn like that, and I even have a pretty good idea on a story involving a cop investigating cannibalistic murders, but I doubt it could happen. Admittedly even if it somehow got made, I'd probably end up disappointed by it anyway, just because I keep visualizing '80s Sharon Mitchell as the main character. :D I also really suck at business. I know just enough about it to make me disheartened, because all the things I would want to make (even in terms of engineering things) are very niche in nature and thus probably wouldn't be economically viable.

Of course I'm someone who views porn as a form of art. Hell, I view the human body as a work of art, so *shrug*
