Porn Spoof’s Blood Makes CCBill See Red

All amateur Adult Netizen and filmmaker Joanna Angel wanted to do was make a Halloween porn spoof of Re-Animator. The problem was that using even stage blood for The Re-Penetrator, which stars Angel herself, bumped up against payment processor ’s policies against processing for certain pages, films, or other materials featuring five certain criteria, blood being one.

That’s why received the word from CCBill that they had until November 1 to remove The Re-Penetrator from the site’s offerings or lose CCBill as their payment processor.

“We wanted to make a zombie porn for Halloween,” Angel told AVNOnline.com. “We got together with friends who formed Backseat Conceptions. They’ve made indie movies; they never made a porn before but they kind of always wanted to. The movie is funny. It’s a funny horror movie. I grew up watching horror movies and I wanted to make a funny horror movie with porno in it.”

But CCBill’s policy bars processing for sites featuring rape, incest, violence, mutilation, or, unfortunately for Angel, blood. “Our policy review said it was a violation because of the extreme violence,” said a company spokesperson who asked not to be identified. A copy of a CCBill letter to BurningAngel.com made available to AVNOnline.com said the specific reason why CCBill elected not to process payments tied to The Re-Penetrator was “blood.”

“It’s me, I’m the zombie, and I get resurrected by this serum that turns me into a nymphomaniac,” Angel said. “Essentially, I wake up and I fuck the mad scientist to death. And at the end you see an image of the mad scientist and he’s mutilated, and I sit there annoyed waiting for more, so I pick up the serum. And you’ll find out more in Re-Penetrator 2.

“There’s lots of fake blood shooting out from all sorts of orifices,” she continued. “I mean, the thing is funny.”

Angel doesn’t exactly hold it against CCBill, however. She said she believed the root cause might be credit card company police or pressure, though the CCBill spokesperson denied that. “They’re entitled to their opinion,” the spokesperson said when told of Angel’s speculation.

Angel added that she has otherwise enjoyed a good relationship with CCBill.

“I didn’t know making a parody Halloween movie went on the same level as rape and incest,” Angel said. “But CCBill has been nothing but nice to us in terms of any of our other billing needs. It just doesn't make any sense. There are lot of Web sites completely legal who companies are willing to do their billing and you see throat gagging, but I don't see how those aren't considered violence where something that is so blatantly a joke is.”
