A lot of people are using the word “masterpiece” to describe this movie…
The Possession of Mrs. Hyde (2018)
Three generations of adult film directors bring to life an X-Rated film noir 30 years in the making. Co-written with his late father Lasse and his son Rikki, The Possession of Mrs. Hyde is Axel Braun’s first non-parody feature in 15 years and his most ambitious movie to date.
Shot entirely in Black and White CinemaScope 2:35:1 and driven by an explosive, career-making performance by Avi Love in the titular role, this intoxicatingly sexy thriller puts a new spin on the famous Robert Louis Stevenson novel by borrowing some of the key characters but expanding its narrative.
Braun’s inspired direction and virtuoso camerawork, along with a bravura performance by Seth Gamble as Mr. Hyde and a tremendous supporting cast including Reagan Foxx, Kenna James, Charlotte Stokely, Victoria Voxxx, jessica drake and adult industry legend Tom Byron as Dr. Jekyll, contribute to making The Possession of Mrs. Hyde a groundbreaking erotic masterpiece.

There’s a whole lot of hype surrounding the release of Axel Braun’s The Possession of Mrs. Hyde. The movie is Braun’s first non-parody in fifteen years, was co-written along with his late father (porn legend Lasse Braun) and his son (Rikki Braun) and features Avi Love in what could be the role that helps her come away with some Best New Starlet and Best Actress trophies. Expectations for this film are high.
According to Axel Braun, he’d been wanting to shoot The Possession of Mrs. Hyde for at least the past fifteen years, but could never find a lead actress that he thought was right for the role. Considering the amount of hugely talented women Axel has worked with over the years, that’s kind of shocking. And it says a whole hell of a lot about Avi Love, the woman who ultimately landed the role of Mrs. Hyde.
The Possession of Mrs. Hyde | What’s so special about Avi Love?
Apparently, quite a bit.
Everything that I’ve read about The Possession of Mrs. Hyde is all about how amazing of a performance she delivered, how she was perfect for the role and how Axel Braun wouldn’t have made the film if it weren’t for her. But don’t take my word for it. Here’s what Mr. Braun had to say about things…
Her audition was just phenomenal. This is a movie I’ve been wanting to make for a really long time and never pulled the trigger because I couldn’t find the right girl for the lead and believe me when I say that over the past 15 years I must have auditioned a couple hundred girls.
None of them could pull it off. It’s a very complex role that requires a specific look and a lot of range. Avi has both.
On the first day of shooting, right off the bat, Avi blew me away. Her first dialogue scene gave everybody on set goosebumps. People are gonna go, ‘Holy shit! where did that come from?’
I haven’t yet seen The Possession of Mrs. Hyde, but it’s certainly on my list of XXX flicks to check out soon-ish. In addition to Avi Love, the movie also features some seriously talented performers. Seth Gamble, jessica drake, and Charlotte Stokely are all superstar-level porn people and all of them tend to impress in whatever role they’re given.
And it should go without saying that because this is an Axel Braun directed movie, it’s almost impossible for it to suck. This movie, along with his truly awesome Deadpool XXX parody, will certainly put Mr. Braun in consideration for Director of the Year honors. Probably. Or maybe not, what the fuck do I know?
