I wish I didn’t see this movie…

I really do… Actually I want to get my hour back of my life that I lost while watching this, but I’ll get back to that a little later on…

The movie that I am going to review today is called See Dick Run. It was released in 2009 and is a comedy starring Kel Mitchell.

Kel plays the role of Richard Jones, a fast talking guy that has pulled his game of telling lies to get his way with lots of women in his past.

But after meeting one really sexy girl, he discovers that something is missing from his life… His “dick”.

Eventually, he sees a Voodoo Priestess that tells him that someone in his past placed a curse on him and he has only until midnight that day to apologize for his past actions in order to set things right, and reverse the hex on him. But the question for him is, which of the literally dozens of women that have a grude against him did this and why?

The following is a trailer on YouTube for the movie:

And in case the embedding doesn’t work:

If you pay attention to the trailer, you will notice two scenes in this movie. One has the point in it where the shot turns green and Richard gets assaulted by his hot date. The other scene is where the Voodoo Priestess reveals that he was attacked by a Succubus summoned to be used against him. This next video is the first scene as played out in the movie that shows the Succubus that steals his manhood…

Again, in case the embedding doesn’t work:

A couple of things that I like and dislike about the Succubus in this film, I’m not going to really review the rest of this movie, you can get that in a lot of other places and really that isn’t the focus of my site anyway… I didn’t really like all the humor in it, and I found myself fast-forwarding through a lot of it. ((The repeated scenes of seeing that something was missing did so on a lil long)). There are only a few places that we see the Succubus, and so that’s what I am going to concentrate on.

The Succubus is played by Heidi Marie Wanser, the image to the left is her in the movie at one point in the first scene she appears.

She’s really very beautiful, and this screenshot doesn’t do her justice to be honest. You can find out more about her at the IMDb here.

She makes for a deliciously sexy, seductive and evil succubus when she first appears. I like the way she moves and taunts her prey in the movie as well… The striptease she performs is wonderful and I love the boots she’s wearing as part of her outfit. I just wish that they had done more with her in the movie because, really, I think her character is wasted for the most part in the movie after the first scene she appears in.

But then, that scene has some real issues for Succubus lovers… After she gets close to Richard then the scene moves towards all green lighting and it goes downhill from there for me.

That scene, as shown above in the second YouTube link, just isn’t as sexy as it could have been. i know that this is a comedy and was rated for general audiences, but when the scene consists of Richard getting thrown around by a screaming woman…


That isn’t close to being Succubus-like to me.

Ignoring the green scene, and just looking at the rest of her appearances, I give the Succubus in this movie 3 pitchforks out of 5. But as a whole, that drops to 2.5 out of 5 looking at the actual Succubus attack they show.

I don’t like all comedies, didn’t like this one a lot, but honestly…

She could have been amazing…

Little note… The writer Dwayne Smith left a comment here about this post and I want to thank him again for taking the time to visit and give his opinion here…


Thank you again!

Morrigan Drawing Touch-up YouTube…

I like finding Succubus art on YouTube, and I came across something of a touch-up video this week there…

And in case the embedding doesn’t work:

This is of course the Succubus Morrigan Aensland from Darkstalkers… She is popular isn’t she?


As much as I like the process shown here, I think that perhaps it would have been nice for the artist to show a lil of the final work, unless of course they are stopping at the line art of Morrigan and not coloring that further…

Which to me seems a bit of a shame really as I think that his work would look lovely all colored and with some sort of a scene in the background…

I can hope that more appears soon…

Where exactly is the Lost Girl Succubus?

Well over a year ago, I posted here on the Tale about a Canadian television show that was under production for the 2010 season…

That show is called Lost Girl, and you can find an entry in the SuccuWiki here.

Now according to the releases on this show, it was supposed to premiere this past February.

Well it didn’t.

What bothers me more is that there are no news items on it, no official releases, nothing to indicate if the show is still under production or if they have decided to drop the series…

As well, if you check the IMDb database on this show, which you can here, the lead actress is no longer listed as being involved with it!

Anna Silk was listed as playing the lead character Bo for the pilot, which you can see here, but now all that are listed on the series page is:

Ksenia Solo…Kenzi
Kristen Holden-Ried…Dyson
Sarah Allen…Lauren
Zoie Palmer…Lauren (2010) (uncredited)

So then, does that mean that Anna Silk isn’t involved any longer?

What’s really odd is that Showcase, the television channel that was to show this series, has not a piece of information on the series other than their blog announcing that the pilot had wrapped production and that a series was ordered.

And then all goes quiet, which to me at least, is an indication that something happened to the series somewhere or something changed to put this to the side…

So, if there is anyone that has a clue, I’d like to know what is happening with the series…

Waiting and not knowing a thing really is a pain…

Succubi Image of the Week 115

For the next few weeks, I am going to share the artwork of one particular artist from Deviantart that has created a series of Succubi images using some of the most well known names in Succubi mythology…

The artist is known as Genzoman and this image is called Agrat Bat Mahlat…

Genzoman’s Deviantart site can be found here.

And you can find the original page with this work here on Deviantart as well.

The myth of Agrat Bat Mahlat is that she is, according to Zoharistic Qabalah, one of the four angels of prostitution, who mates with Samael.

She is described as being a Succubus and her fellow succubi are Lilith, Naamah, and Eisheth Zenunim, all of whom when looking at their myths, seem to reflect the different powers of Succubi…

Over the course of the next four weeks, I will be sharing Genzoman’s images of those other Succubi so that perhaps some comparisons can be made from them as a group…

In myth, Agrat is seen as the mistress of illusion or, more properly, deception which is one of the powers of a Succubus according to their mythos. So in a way, she is the embodiment of that part of their powers really…

I love this particular drawing for several reasons, most of all that she seems to be approaching someone with bemusement over them being in her realm, or power, and what she might do with them…

Just lovely, sexy, and beautiful!

Next week…

Domino Masks and Succubi do mix…

Domino Masks and Succubi do mix… Well occasionally they do, but that depends on the mask really…

For those that do not know, Domino masks are usually see at masquerade balls when you want to disguise who you are…

Thing is, some Domino masks don’t really do that to be honest…

This particular style I have some issues with and I’ll have to explain that a little bit…

Most Domino masks cover quite a lot of your face when you are wearing one. I have seen some masks where they leave only your cheeks visible while the rest is covered by the mask or feathers and other things attached to them.

Now, while I understand that this mask isn’t exactly made with the same amount of “mystery”, I think that decision also makes for an odd looking mask.

That concern comes from the openings in the bottom part of the mask, which I think shouldn’t be there. Somehow I think that it would have been better to remove those lower parts and leave this looking more like a pair of glasses with horns on them.

It’s a good start, but I just think that it’s missing a certain amount of Succubiness in it…

There has to be a story in there somewhere to ponder…

Temptations L (50)

The Queen of the Succubi sees temptations… Does she respond?


Temptations L

By TeraS and Legion

Tera did not react as he ranted and moved around her. That was the thing about people that dealt with her. They never seemed to understand that she would never be angry… Never be upset…. Never be unruly… For that was never her way….

She did her best in other ways…

But if they expected anger…. So be it then…

She smiled slightly and said, “Legion is it? How quaint… Have all of your campaigns driven you to me then? Should I feel honored that you have brought yourself to me in this way?” Her tail stopped swishing and peeked over her left shoulder as she purred, “As for having to meet me…. Are you sure that you are? Reality and the mind are so easily swayed you know…”

She tilted her head to the left to rest it upon her hand and continued, “Let’s see…. You did things to my kind that I’m not sure that you can be forgiven for… You have tried to impinge on my honour by suggesting that I do not care about my kind…. You have acted as one that thinks that I am to be toyed with…. You expect me to quake in surprise at your efforts… You believe that in some some way I will come to trust you and perhaps accept you in some way….”

She chuckled a bit, “Lots of things against you my dear Legion… The hole you dig is deeper and deeper with each passing moment…. If you know me… You’ll know the right answers…. If not then you will find that the game you seek is not the one you desire…”

Then she waved her left hand a little, “As for the words of my kind…. My dear Legion… They would never speak of me in that way… But then you never thought to ask them for my truth… And so from the beginning you are in the trap that you have set for yourself…”

Legion didn’t spend the last few thousand years making deals not to know a bluff when he heard it.  He would be the biggest kind of fool to enter Tera’s place without knowing everything there was to know of her.

But if she wanted to underestimate him, so much the better.  This was going to be a very interesting game, two manipulators, masters of the deal, clashing.. to what end?

That was going to be a pleasure to find out.

“Oh Queen, you wound me.  You cut me to the quick,” he says lightly.

“It is I who am honored to be in the mear shadow of you oh legendary Queen.  Though I doubt you would treat a guest so rudely as to send only a phantom, even a phantom of you would be enjoyable.”

He can see in her eyes she is playing the game, just as he is.  But this is a different game for both of them.  Standard wares and tricks will only waste time and not amount to anything.  This will be a test of stepping outside the norms.

That is why he spent so long planning this little venture after all.

“I have not come here to ask for forgiveness for any affront oh Queen.  I feel they are very happy.  If granting them their desire is wrong then we are both guilty as sin.  And if I impinged your honor I deeply apologize.”

He bows slightly, never taking his eye from her’s.

“And I expect nothing at all, save the pleasure of your company.  As for trust… well, let us be honest, you trust me as much as I do you, which is to say not at all.”

He smiles very slightly, “But then how many who have walked through that door have trusted you from the moment they saw you? Oh eventually they do, but not at once.”

He wanted to laugh at what she had said about her kind.  She had been in charge so long it never occurred to her what would happen if someone else took charge of one of her kind.  It was a common mistake dealers made and one he was very careful not to make himself.

“But you would be AMAZED what your kind says when the barriers are down,”  he looks over another book shelf.

“So many…” he mutters softly before continuing, “I mean, have not some of the folks in your tender deals changed tunes once they have been given what they desire?  Are Succumbi THAT different from others?  Honestly, no.  You might want to taste one of your own in the same way you taste everyone else… might be a new experience for you.”

He turns back to her, “So, since I am sure you ask, because you ALWAYS ask, ‘What do I desire?’  I will answer:  How about a nice cup of something warm and soothing and a pleasant chat between like minded folks… meaning you and me.”

Tera listened to Legion’s words with some bemusement, the tip of her tail just moving ever so slightly as he spoke his thoughts and opinions to her. She thought to herself, “The problem my dear is that you can’t win by taking charge of a being…. You can control…. You can alter…. But to think you have the being utterly? No no no…. That isn’t the way it works…..

Her voice was calm but there was an undertone of honey in it as she said, “The words spoken by those with no choice are never the words that should be said…. Just what the other might think you want to hear…”

She moved her arms behind her, lacing her fingers together and rocking slightly on her heels as she added, “And oh yes my dear Legion…. We are soooo different from what you think…. You have no idea just how different we are… Because we can be…

She tilted her head to the right and then chuckled a little bit, “You desire a cup of something warm? Alright…” The smile played at her lips, “Coffee.. Tea… Or me? Oh but wait! We both know the answer to that question don’t we?”

Tera walked away from Legion then, her heels clicking on the hard surface beneath her as she moved into the darkness behind her throne. She called behind her, “You can wait here if you wish Legion…. Or you can follow…. The choice is yours…. But if you want a chat…. If you want to speak and that is all… Then I’ll be somewhere else than here….”

Just before she completely faded into the blackness she looked over her shoulder and purred, “After all… You cannot have a chat without a couch and a fireplace can you? And I certainly will not remain as I am, for you have no need to see this aspect of me it seems….”

Then she disappeared, soft laughter marking her passage as she did…


Laughing or something else?

More next week….
