The AVN Award Nominations are due out tomorrow, so in honor of that, I thought we'd take a look at the movie which won the Best Film award 25 years ago, The Devil in Miss Jones 3, directed by Gregory Dark. This movie is paired with DMJ4. They were shot at the same time, but packaged as two separate title, killing two birds with one production -- two tapes allowed for maximum revenue generation and it also avoided having to cut the movie so it would comfortably fit on one VHS tape. (VHS tapes can hold 140 minutes, and the two halves of the movie add up to... 140 minutes; so there's no room for leaders, phone sex ads, trailers, etc.)
There is so much to say about this movie, and I fear my busy schedule will not allow me to do it justice in the blog... and there are a few excellent reviews of the movie elsewhere that I really agree with, so it seems silly for me to re-hash their excellent work.

DMJ3 has little to nothing to do with the Damiano's 1973 original or Pachard's 1982 sequel (review). It *does* concern a female protagonist named Justine Jones (Lois Ayres) who ends up in hell, but the similarities end there. It's a retelling of Dante's Inferno with Jack Baker acting as Virgil, her guide through hell.
The plot is simple enough - Justine breaks up with her boyfriend Tom Byron (who is too busy shaving Jennifer Noxt's pubes) and goes out looking for love. On her way to a singles bar, she runs into a pimp (Jack Baker) who wants her to work for him...
So she goes inside and meets Paul Thomas and they go back and fuck. He's taking her from behind and gives one final thrust before he cums (awesome slo-mo leading up to this) when the force of the thrust sends her into the wall where she cracks her head on the headboard and dies, ending up in hell. It's there that she meets Negro (also Jack Baker) her guide to hell... the only way out is through, so she is taken through a variety of rooms where the damned are forced to live out all eternity performing acts of perversion.
They start in the "Voyeur" room where people are forced to watch others have sex. Justine runs into her college rooomate there (Kari Foxx, in a nonsex role) wearing a wedding dress, and they watch Careena Collins and Marc Wallice go at it, followed by Amber Lynn, Marc Wallice and Peter North. Amber, as the announcer tells us, is doing the "Dance of the Double Dong" and she gets both guys in her baby hopper.
On their way to the next room, Ms. Jones gets shanghai'd by the Slutmen (Troy Tannier and Peter North) who double-team her, dropping a huge load on her face right before Negro rescues her from a life in hell -- "If I wasn't here, you'd have been fucked eternally, drowned in cum, and your pussy would have worn out, BITCH!" To which she replies, "I don't know what came over me! Even tho it started to hurt, it started to FEEL GOOD!" and as he drags her out towards the next room, someone catches his eye...
Another old friend of Justine's, played by Vanessa del Rio, is getting gangbanged in the center of the room. They trade some dialogue about how Justine's not dead and how Vanessa felt that way when she first got there...
The gangbang is pretty raw, and in 1985, a pretty rare thing to see on the screen.
The movie ends there, forcing you to wait for DMJ 4 which was released a few months later. When the film was released on DVD, it was packaged on a single disc with its sibling, so you can buy one DVD and get both movies.
Fun trivia: The Gleaming Spires (who had a minor radio -- but massive soundtrack - hit "Are Ready for the Sex Girls") provided the theme for the titles, A Christian Girl's Problems. This is the second time Greg Dark tapped the LA new wave scene for a theme song, having hit up The Plugz for "Electrify Me" which was the theme for most of the New Wave Hookers series.
I'll leave you with the non-DMJ-themed music video for "A Christian Girl's Problem" by The Gleaming Spires:
