The famously well-endowed adult star's career came to a tragic end, when he died of AIDS, spurred on by years of drug addiction. In between birth and death, however, many dramas occurred, all profiled in this in-depth documentary.
The omnisexual nature of the nineteen-year-old debauchee, Roxanna, is dragging her into a world of hedonism and sensual self-indulgence; however, her sanity is at stake. Is there an escape from the mind's dark prison?

In a 1999 interview with "GettingIt" webzine, when asked why there no shots of the fully erect penis of John Holmes in the theatrical documentary, director Wesley Emerson said, "I didn't think it was needed, and I basically cut it with a cable version in mind--like for HBO or something." See more »

Edits, blank screens and fade outs were used to keep some dialogue in, but nudity and sex out in one version of the movie. The softcore (theatrical) version appears in the limited 2-disc DVD edition of Wonderland. VCA Interactive released a hardcore version of "Wadd" separately in a special edition DVD in 2002.

For a documentary "Wadd" ain't so innovating, and maybe it's too long but still my eyes were glued to screen. I knew John was a cokefiend and involved in a mob hit but I didn't really knew he was vicious wife beater and a chronic liar/schizo that fed the cops info on pornproducers in the early 70's. "Wadd" isn't that pornographic (no penetration scenes) it's more of a tragic story of a not too bright kid with the world's biggest "tool". Lots of people from the adult industry are interviewed (Goldstein, Flynt, Sharon Mitchell, Ciccolina etc.) as you would expect but also cops, lawyers, journalists and guys like Paul "Boggie Nights" Anderson are included. I know it's almost impossible to make Holmes-docu that isn't interesting but "Wadd" is a fascinating and important portrait of a legend that some called The Elvis Of Pornography!
