The Sex Files Still Looks More Like the X-Files Than the X-Files


Remember that X-Files porn from New Sensations a while back? The one with the shockingly good, interesting (and safe-for-work) trailer and the girl who looked exactly like Gillian Anderson? Well, it won a bunch of awards and got some good reviews, so of course they’re making a sequel. Here’s the (also safe-for-work) trailer, and tell me — just try and tell me — that this thing doesn’t look loads better than either of the actual X-Files movies:

You can’t, can you? Hell, they could probably release it without the porn and still get some interested buyers simply on production values and respect for the property alone. My only problem is if they don’t decide to title this thing “The Sex Files 2: Fuck the Future” I will be incredibly disappointed.
