An Ideal Place to Kill

Catalog #: MDO205
UPC #: 843276020590

Mondo Macabro’s May 2020 Release of AN IDEAL PLACE TO KILL – Her dirty pictures paid for their vacation, but all too soon the fun turned to terror!

Two free spirited teenagers, Dick and Ingrid (played by Ray Lovelock and Ornella Muti), set out to spend the summer together in Italy. To pay their way they sell Scandinavian porn mags and pictures of Ingrid posing nude. But then they get busted by the cops and are given 24 hours to get out of the country.
 
Instead of leaving they take to the road, where they come up against a thieving biker gang and then are mistaken for a pair of bank robbers. Heading south in a hurry, they run out of gas in the middle of nowhere and take refuge in the house of Barbara Slater (Irene Papas), a seemingly bored, middle aged housewife who appears to be up for some sexual shenanigans. The naive pair party with Barbara but soon discover she is hiding a terrible and deadly secret.
 

Directed by the legendary Umberto Lenzi of CANNIBAL FEROX fame, this sexy thriller in the Italian “giallo” style is a taut and suspense filled entertainment with a deviously twisted plot and all the trappings of the “hippie” 1970s, Euro style.
 
AN IDEAL PLACE TO KILL is here available for the first time ever on Blu-ray, restored from the original negative, complete and uncut and with exclusive bonus features.

Catalog #: MDO201
UPC #: 843276020194

Mondo Macabro’s February 2020 Release of THE BEAST AND THE MAGIC SWORD – Werewolf versus Samurai in a Battle to the Death!

THE BEAST AND THE MAGIC SWORD is the last great film from Spanish horror legend Paul Naschy. Although he would go on making and planning films until his death in 2009, he never again attempted the epic sweep and grandeur of this 10th entry into the saga of Waldemar Daninsky, a man afflicted by the curse of lycanthropy.
 
In this film we get for the first time an origin story of how the Daninsky curse began back in the 10th century. We then move forward to 16th century Japan where Daninsky has travelled in search of a cure to his affliction. Co-starring Japanese stage and screen veteran Shigeru Amachi, and shot in the studios of Toshiro Mifune, THE BEAST AND THE MAGIC SWORD is a highly successful and colorful melding of European werewolf legends and dark Japanese fantasy. It features a fight between werewolf and tiger, an evil scarlet-cloaked witch who imprisons Daninsky, a sword fight with a troupe of ghost samurai, and many other unforgettable scenes.
 
This is the first Blu-ray release of this film and its first ever US release and includes both a full frame version and a widescreen version.

Blood Splattered Bride, The
Studio: Mondo Macabro

UPC #: 843276017996

Susan, a young bride, travels with her husband to his family’s ancient manor house in the far north of Spain. Susan is a virgin and is very hesitant about her husband's sexual demands. She is also disturbed by her unfamiliar surroundings and wonders if she will ever come to terms with her new married life. She is shocked to discover that all the old portraits of female members of her husband’s family have been locked away in the basement. When she finds them, she discovers that one of the portraits shows a woman holding a strange dagger. The woman’s face has been cut out of the painting. Her name is Mircala Karstein.

This atmospheric, gothic horror story is widely regarded as one of the very best vampire films ever made. Controversial in its day for sexual content and for extreme scenes of violence and gore, it was widely cut on original release. This brand new version restores the film to its intended length and includes alternate scenes that have never been made available before. This is the first Blu-ray release of an acknowledged classic, one of Quentin Tarantino’s favourite films and an influence on his own Kill Bill.

Haunted by a childhood trauma... a deaf mute accountant develops a fixation with blood spilling across his skin. Brief flirtations with ketchup and red ink seem to satisfy him at first, but he soon develops a taste for the real thing. Though he nurses a weird fascination for a neighbourhood girl who passes the time by dancing on the rooftop, he remains socially withdrawn with his co-workers and can't even find comfort in the arms of a hooker. One night he breaks into the property of the local undertaker and ravages the prettiest female corpse. Now addicted, he habitually raids the tombs of the dead and drinks blood from their throats via a spiked, double pronged glass straw. Authorities and citizens are incensed by these crimes and the search is on for this modern day vampire. 
 
BLOODLUST is one of the darkest and most affecting horror movies to come out of 1970s Europe. Based on the macabre true story of Kuno Hofmann, the “Vampire of Nuremberg”, the film plays like a kind of grown up fairy tale, albeit one that includes bloodsucking, eyeball evisceration and voyeuristic lesbian sex scenes among a host of other activities. Cut and banned in many countries, this is the full length version in all its gruesome, gory, glory.

Mondo Macabro’s February 2020 Release of DANGEROUS CARGO – TVs DALLAS’ Debbie Shelton in her most daring role ever!

In this wild and rarely seen example of Greek exploitation cinema, Deborah Shelton - former Miss USA and star of  TV’s DALLAS - plays the wife of a ship’s captain whose vessel is taken over by pirates. After her husband is brutally killed she is alone with a crew of rough, tough seafarers. When the pirate leader takes an interest in her she has to use all her cunning and skills - not to mention her sexuality - to stay alive and take revenge for the murder of her husband.
 
     The film is a tense and brutal story of lust and treachery on the high seas. Set entirely on a huge ship carrying an illegal cargo of dangerous nitro-glycerine, the film racks up the tension to almost unbearable levels as cross and counter cross take place among the warring parties. When a powerful cyclone threatens to sink the ship and kill all aboard, the former enemies must collaborate to save themselves. Directed by Kostas Karagiannis, the crazed genius behind such films as THE WIFE KILLER and TANGO OF PERVERSION, DANGEROUS CARGO is exploitation cinema at its finest. Deborah Shelton, in her raunchiest role ever, is by turns scared, seductive and scheming as she takes control of the situation and springs more than a few surprises for the viewer.

A master class in sin and depravity, when the Devil himself walks the earth!

"…and no good deed shall go unpunished …"

The action takes place in 16th century Spain. The Devil comes to earth to live as a mere mortal. Together with a human companion, Tomas, he travels, like Don Quixote, through the countryside and has a series of wild encounters with both men and women. On the way he acquires great wealth and even fathers a child. But too late he learns a terrible lesson about we devious humans.

Widely recognised as one of horror star Paul Naschy's very best films, THE DEVIL INCARNATE is bawdy, shocking, funny and thought provoking. In the spirit of THE DECAMERON or THE CANTERBURY TALES the film presents a parade of human types from the saintly to the downright mean and nasty. But who is worse… the Devil or Mankind?

Created from a brand new 4k scan of the original negative, THE DEVIL INCARNATE makes its Blu-ray and US debut in an edition packed with exclusive extra features.

The director's long career at the more prestigious end of Spanish cinema and the presence of award winning scripter Rafael Azcona - who worked with many top European film makers - give the film an edge of sophistication alongside its enjoyably devious narrative.

On his way home from school, 16 year old Thomas helps Charly, an unemployed teenager, escape from the police. Despite their differing backgrounds the boys become good friends and Charly persuades Thomas to join a neo-Nazi youth group. Intrigued and confused by his new friends, Thomas, who is experiencing trouble at home and school, is drawn deeper into a web of sex and violence that leads to a tragic end.
 
In 1979, Austrian film director Walter Bannert was among a group of Vienna cafe patrons beaten up by a gang of young neo-Nazis who wrecked the place. Researching the burgeoning movement in West Germany and Austria for 3 years, Bannert infiltrated their private meetings by convincing party leaders that he wanted to make an objective documentary. His film, THE INHERITORS is the result, a disturbing and timely fictional drama based entirely on real characters, events and conversations that Bannert came across in the neo-Nazi camps. The film was highly controversial on its original release and theatres screening it were threatened with violent action by neo-Nazi sympathizers. Although it is now over thirty years old, the film remains incredibly relevant as we witness, across the world, the rebirth of right-wing extremism using exactly the same lies and tactics exposed so powerfully in this film.
 
THE INHERITORS was not screened in its native country for many years until it was rediscovered at the 2015 Viennale Exhibition, where it was praised as a rare and powerful example of Austrian genre cinema with a strong political message. The film was selected at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival for the prestigious Directors Fortnight section. In the same year it also won a jury prize at the Montreal World Film Festival.

A woman's idyllic middle-class life is disrupted when her husband brings home a beautiful young orphan to be their maid. At first she welcomes the pretty girl, in fact seems strangely fixated on her, but soon comes to suspect the girl of having an affair with her husband. At the same time odd, unexplained incidents - most involving the maid's mysterious wooden doll - begin to make her question her own sanity. Soon it all spirals out of control and the film climaxes in a fever pitch of sexual jealousy, murder, and supernatural vengeance, all set to a pounding synth score.

Almost completely unknown outside its home country, Suddenly In The Dark is one of the best examples of pre-millennial K-horror. It was made at a time when censorship laws were being liberalized, igniting a boom in horror and erotic films. Elements of both are present here, directed with bizarre flair by Go Yeong-nam in a style often compared to the wilder Italian films of the 70s and 80s.
Mondo Macabro is proud to present this classic of Korean horror on Blu-ray for the first time anywhere in the world. Our presentation has been restored from the best available elements from the Korean Film Archive, and features brand new extras produced exclusively for this release.

A dark and haunting study in psychological horror, Symptoms takes us deep into the twisted mind of a damaged girl.

Helen, who lives alone, invites her new friend Anne to stay with her in a lonely house, lost in the English countryside. The house, the woods that surround it and the figures fleetingly glimpsed through its windows, all seem imbued with a deep sense of mystery. Helen appears to be hiding a secret and the more Anne tries to uncover it, the deeper she is pulled into its dark heart.

Subsequently the film sank into obscurity and was recently listed as one of the UK’s top 75 “lost films”. This release, taken from the original negative and fully restored, brings this quiet masterpiece back into view, where it can now be appreciated as one of the most under rated films of the 1970s.

Remastered, restored and available for the first time on home video anywhere in the world, this new “perverse double bill” from maverick film maker Jean Louis Van Belle contains both the 1972 release Pervertissima and the 1971 production The Lady Kills. The Lady Kills tells the story of Françoise Frémond, who travels across Europe on an apparently random killing spree, bumping off a series of increasingly odious men. From Swinging London to the eternal city of Rome, she leaves a trail of dead bodies and the question: why?

 A mystery film as only Jean Louis Van Belle could make it, The Lady Kills is a blast from start to finish with an amazing soundtrack of gloriously groovy psych-rock. Pervertissima is a bizarre – and possible unique - combination of mondo movie and mad scientist flick. A beautiful woman is hired by a scandal sheet editor to research and write a report on “Love in Paris”. Her quest takes her from a lesbian sauna to a secretive club of masked swingers, via stints as a street walker in a seedy Paris back alley and a strip-tease artist in an upmarket cabaret. Her final outing leads to the clinic of the dangerous Dr Vilard, who aims to create sex robots out of human flesh, and mate them to create a race of superhumans to take over the world!

Mondo Macabro's Exploitation Double Bill Release THE WILD PUSSYCAT plus THE DESERTER

The WILD PUSSYCAT is an unsung classic of exploitation cinema. Produced in Greece in 1968, it was not officially released there until 1972 and then only in a cut and compromised version. The simple plot concerns a women whose sister was exploited and driven to suicide by a sleazy pimp. In order to get revenge on him the woman seduces the man, drugs him and imprisons him in a sound proofed room, tormenting him through a large one way mirror (he can see out, no-one can see in) by performing sultry strip tease dances and having sex with men and women while he can only look on, helpless to stop it or join in. Her final vengeance on him is so shocking it raises eyebrows even today. 

In spite of its lurid subject matter and explicit visuals, THE WILD PUSSYCAT was not a low budget quickie with a cast of unknowns and a first time film maker. It was directed by Dimi Dadiras, one of the most successful director/producers of the period, and it features one of the big stars of Greek cinema - Gisela Dali, known in her day as "the Greek Bardot".

The Blu-ray includes both the 1972 Greek version (with much of the sex removed and a plot featuring a drug dealing con inserted) and the full on, uncut export version. So essentially there are three films on the disc.
THE DESERTER, a rarely seen Greek production from 1970, is a fascinating and powerful film about a young soldier who escapes from a seemingly endless war only to find himself trapped in an emotional and sexual battle between two desperate women. One of them, Ermina (played by Italian star Franca Parisi), is stuck in a loveless marriage with a boorish farmer who plans to make his fortune by selling cheap hootch to soldiers. The other - much younger - woman, seems to live in a bizarre and dangerous fantasy world. She is played by famous Greek singing star Alexandra Kyriakaki. The great Gisela Dali "the Greek Brigitte Bardot" also stars in this production, in a small but unforgettable role as a witch who casts a love spell on the soldier.

There are only children, who don't speak but just stare at the strangers with eerie smiles on their faces. The English couple soon discovers that all the island’s children have been possessed by a mysterious force, a kind of madness which they can pass from one to another, and which makes them attack and murder their elders, who can't defend themselves because, of course, nobody can kill a child...

This Blu-ray presents the full version of the film but also includes the shorter “Island of Death” release, which does not have the opening documentary footage. The film influenced many subsequent books and movies, including CHILDREN OF THE CORN and was remade in 2012 under the title COME OUT AND PLAY.

Like a kind of crazy cinematic ghost train ride, Woman Chasing the Butterfly of Death take us on a journey deep into the darkness of one man’s fears and fantasies. That man is Young-gul, a lonely and rather morbid student in late 1970’s South Korea. Narrowly surviving a murder-suicide attempt by a woman wearing a butterfly pendant, he next finds himself besieged by a seemingly insane bookseller who claims he can never die. Even after Young-gul burns the man’s body his skeleton comes back to taunt him. As if that weren’t enough, the poor student then finds himself the victim of a beautiful thousand year old woman (she looks about 25) who says she is hungry and wants to eat his liver….

The director, Kim Ki-young, was one of Korea’s most successful film makers. His 1960 production The Housemaid is now a recognized classic of world cinema. With this film he goes far beyond the bounds of the real and takes us into a world where anything seems possible, a world where a kind of dream logic rules. Almost impossible to summarize, the film is nevertheless insanely enjoyable. A real one of a kind production that opens our eyes to the limitless possibilities of cinema.
