Seven Women for Satan

Audio Format: DTS-HD MA 2.0 Stereo

Plot Summary:

By day a mild-mannered businessman, in his dreams Boris Zaroff hunts naked females on his country estates, just like his notorious father. One weekend, two visitors arrive at Boris’s castle. The young girl is fascinated by tales of the wicked Zaroffs and asks if she can see their famous torture chamber. Maybe now the Zaroff dreams can become reality once more. Seven Women for Satan, originally titled The Wicked Weekends of Count Zaroff is a stylish and erotic horror film that was actually banned in France in the 1970s. Severely cut from its original running time and more or less forgotten for decades, the film now reaches Blu-ray in a stunningly restored new version created from the original negative. Complete with a host of extras and with many deleted and alternate scenes, this release shows the film, for the first time, in the form its maker intended. An extended version restores the film closer to its original running time and a nearly hour-long interview with cast member and assistant director Robert de Laroche gives a hugely entertaining and insightful view into the making of the film and the life and work of its creator Michel Lemoine.

Plot Summary:

Benoît Landrieux, the idle and depraved son of a rich industrialist has two chance encounters on the same day that will change his life forever: Jean-Pierre, a young tearaway who is trying to steal his car, and Isabelle, 20 years old, whom he saves from being raped by her stepfather. Benoît is a coward and a voyeur who gets his kicks from watching other couples make out. He cajoles his two new companions to attempt what he has never dared do: rob the safe in his father’s factory, seduce his stepmother to blackmail her for money and finally go so far as committing murder. Thus begins a wild ride that takes them to the very edge of madness. Director Claude Mulot made this film under the pseudonym of Frédéric Lansac - the name of a character from his previous horror hit The Blood Rose. Sins of the Flesh marks the start of his transition from softcore films to full on hard core which was confirmed by his next release, Pussy Talk - one of the most controversial French films of all time. But Sins of the Flesh also shows Mulot’s background in horror cinema. He presents Benoît as a cunning and complex psychopath, a man who smiles and wears expensive clothes, while inside lurks a monster. The film stars Jess Franco favorite Anne Libert (Erotic Rites of Frankenstein) and comes in a brand new 4k restoration with a host of original extra features.

Audio Format: DTS-HD MA 2.0 Mono

Plot Summary:

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!

Plot Summary:

Four years before they rocked Asia with SATAN’S SLAVE, director Sisworo Gautama Putra, screenwriter Imam Tantowi and producer Gope T. Samtani made their collaborative debut with Indonesia’s first – and still only – Italian-style cannibal shocker: When three naïve anthropology students go in search of a lost primitive tribe, they’ll instead discover a nightmare of bloody rituals, depraved torture, jaw-dropping music cues and flesh-chomping brutality. Indonesian martial arts legend Barry Prima (THE WARRIOR) stars in this “peculiarly local, sometimes psychedelic and virtually unseen” (Mondo Digital) chunk of graphic jungle carnage – released in the UK as SAVAGE TERROR and classified as a Section 3 ‘Video Nasty’ – now scanned in HD from the Jakarta vault negative for the first time ever.

Impulse Pictures is proud to present THE NIKKATSU FILMS COLLECTION, a continuing series of critically acclaimed, classic “eroductions” designed to shock and titillate fans of Japanese erotic cinema. Twenty-year-old Kazuo is in love with his college girlfriend, Hisako, but he can’t help but be intrigued by a mysterious older woman named Kyoku, a promiscuous woman unsatisfied with her marriage. As time goes on, both Kazuo and Hisako are pulled into the seemingly rules free, borderless world of Kyoku - with all of its many pains and pleasures.

LOVE HUNTER is a landmark film in Nikkatsu’s history. Not only is it one of their earliest “Roman Porno” erotic productions, but it was so controversial for the time that director Yamaguchi and some executives of Nikkatsu Films were arrested. Employees of Eirin, the Japanese equivalent of the MPAA, were even indicted for allowing the release of this film! It took eight long years for all to be acquitted of the obscenity charges. Nikkatsu Films provided Impulse Pictures with a brand-new high-definition master of this unexpected and seductive classic.

Plot Summary:

Altered Innocence presents EQUATION TO AN UNKNOWN – Brand new HD restoration of a long-lost masterpiece of gay erotic cinema.

This long-lost masterpiece of gay erotic cinema centers on a handsome young stud who rides his motorcycle through myriad of sexual encounters, from a soccer game’s locker room to a dreamy and unsettling orgy where the film reaches its melancholic peak.

From the breathless grandeur of ancient ruined temples and pristine beach landscapes, to little Spanish townships and big city fiestas, Women of the Sun: Bunny Yeager in Mexico, pushes the boundaries of pin-up photography to its most satisfying limit, in this magnum opus by a celebrated master.

While photographer Bunny Yeager is rightfully lauded for her collaborations with pin-up legend Bettie Page (the Queen of Curves was never captured better), this new coffee-table hardcover book showcases a stunning collection of unique photos shot South of the Border during the mid-1960s that has remained largely unseen— until now.

Over 200 rare images in both color and b/w are included, many previously unpublished, revealing Bunny Yeager at her most artful, exotic, and intimate. Assisted by an alluring bevy of fabulous, natural models, and inspired by such epic backdrops as the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacán, or the silent city of Chichén Itzá—this is a landmark photographer unleashing their full creative powers to deliver profoundly beautiful imagery.

Plot Summary:

Mondo Macabro’s May 2020 Release of SATANICO PANDEMONIUM – From Bride of Christ to Slave of Satan!

In the spirit of Ken Russell’s THE DEVILS and Juan Lopez Moctezuma’s ALUCARDA, this is one of the most subversive, violent and shocking films ever made about the religious life. With a stunning performance form the often naked Cecilia Pezet, the film inspired the Salma Hayek character in FROM DUSK TILL DAWN.
 
Sister Maria (Pezet) is known in the convent for her good works and charitable deeds. But, in the secret depths of her sexual fantasies, she is tormented by visions of another world - a world where her forbidden passions are allowed to run free. In this world, Satan is her master. As her acts of violence and blasphemy increase, Maria realizes that she has been chosen by the Devil himself to destroy the convent and lead her sister nuns into hell!
 
Helmed by award winning, veteran director Gilberto Martinez Solares, the film is stunningly photographed in eye popping colors, making it one of the best looking entries in the entire nunsploitation genre.

Plot Summary:

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.

Plot Summary:

Cult Epics presents P.O. BOX TINTO BRASS plus IsTintoBrass – in a 2-Disc Limited Edition, plus a 48-pg photo book.

Italian director Tinto Brass is known as the absolute master of erotica, creator of works such as ALL LADIES DO IT, FRIVOLOUS LOLA and PAPRIKA. His gift of perfectly portraying the beauty of the female body has made him celebrated by both men and women. And it is precisely the latter category that sends him boxes full of fan letters.
 
P.O. BOX TINTO BRASS is a collection of those letters, photos and videos of female sexual fantasies. This erotic comedy by the Maestro himself, with a score by Riz Ortolani, contains a succession of exciting, downright sensational and sometimes even shocking material. Previously unreleased in the US, Cult Epics presents the uncut version in a 4K transfer. This 2-Disc Limited Edition of 2000 Copies include a 48-page photo book of unpublished images from the Tinto Brass Archives by right-hand set photographer Gianfranco Salis, plus the exclusive documentary ISTINTOBRASS.
 
In this documentary Tinto Brass talks candidly about his life and long career, from his earliest anarchistic, innovative and experimental arthouse films (WHOEVER WORKS IS LOST, THE HOWL, ATTRACTION), to the decidedly derriere-obsessed fetishism of his later work. Starting as an assistant to Roberto Rossellini, Henri Langlois and Joris Ivens, he soon found himself at the very beginning of the Nouvelle Vague, discussing cinema with auteurs such as Bresson, Godard, and Truffaut. The biography brings to light an almost forgotten chapter of cinema history, thanks to the analyses of Marco Muller and Gianni Canova, who trace its beginnings on through Brass’s films on power, such as the Nazi-brothel melodrama of SALON KITTY and the infamous and enormously successful CALIGULA.
 
To this day, Tinto Brass remains an icon of erotic pleasure and voyeurism, and his story is revealed here in the tales of Gigi Proietti, Serena Grandi, Helen Mirren, Franco Nero and Sir Ken Adam, among others.

Plot Summary:

Cult Epics presents P.O. BOX TINTO BRASS plus IsTintoBrass – in a 2-Disc Limited Edition, plus a 48-pg photo book.

Italian director Tinto Brass is known as the absolute master of erotica, creator of works such as ALL LADIES DO IT, FRIVOLOUS LOLA and PAPRIKA. His gift of perfectly portraying the beauty of the female body has made him celebrated by both men and women. And it is precisely the latter category that sends him boxes full of fan letters.
 
P.O. BOX TINTO BRASS is a collection of those letters, photos and videos of female sexual fantasies. This erotic comedy by the Maestro himself, with a score by Riz Ortolani, contains a succession of exciting, downright sensational and sometimes even shocking material. Previously unreleased in the US, Cult Epics presents the uncut version in a 4K transfer. This 2-Disc Limited Edition of 2000 Copies include a 48-page photo book of unpublished images from the Tinto Brass Archives by right-hand set photographer Gianfranco Salis, plus the exclusive documentary ISTINTOBRASS.
 
In this documentary Tinto Brass talks candidly about his life and long career, from his earliest anarchistic, innovative and experimental arthouse films (WHOEVER WORKS IS LOST, THE HOWL, ATTRACTION), to the decidedly derriere-obsessed fetishism of his later work. Starting as an assistant to Roberto Rossellini, Henri Langlois and Joris Ivens, he soon found himself at the very beginning of the Nouvelle Vague, discussing cinema with auteurs such as Bresson, Godard, and Truffaut. The biography brings to light an almost forgotten chapter of cinema history, thanks to the analyses of Marco Muller and Gianni Canova, who trace its beginnings on through Brass’s films on power, such as the Nazi-brothel melodrama of SALON KITTY and the infamous and enormously successful CALIGULA.
 
To this day, Tinto Brass remains an icon of erotic pleasure and voyeurism, and his story is revealed here in the tales of Gigi Proietti, Serena Grandi, Helen Mirren, Franco Nero and Sir Ken Adam, among others.

Plot Summary:

Severin Films presents CARNIVAL MAGIC – Al Adamson’s bizarre kiddie movie.

For his penultimate film, exploitation legend Al Adamson (SATAN’S SADISTS, DRACULA VS. FRANKESTEIN) made perhaps the strangest movie of his career with this surreal foray into ‘family entertainment’.
 
Severin Kids presents Adamson’s first children’s movie, a delightful tale of alcoholism, domestic violence, a talking chimp with a brassiere fetish, vivisection, suicide, ‘The Freak-Out Girl’ Regina Carrol – in her final performance – flaunting an array of skintight/low-cut outfits, and not a single role for children. Don Stewart (THE GUIDING LIGHT) and Joe Cirillo (GHOSTBUSTERS) co-star in the infamous ‘80s oddity that has been hailed as “Possibly the worst kiddie movie ever made,” (DVD Drive-In) and “The finest family film since E.T.” (Joe Franklin). Now scanned from the only surviving pre-print 35mm elements with all-new Special Features – including his last complete feature, the Sandra Dee starrer LOST – that reveal Al’s bizarre kiddie matinee legacy.

Plot Summary:

In this surreal and sensuous mystery/noir, Lina Romay (The Female Vampire, Lorna the Exorcist) plays Irina, a partner in a male-female mind reading act. At night she experiences vivid and sexually charged dreams which end in murder. It seems that the people whose minds she reads are being killed off one by one. In the 1980s, after the death of the Spanish dictator, Jess Franco returned to his native country and made a series of films in which he was given almost total freedom, so long as they featured a number of erotic sequences. Night Has a Thousand Desires is one of the most artistically successful of these films. It’s filled with familiar Franco touches - artful cinematography, atmospheric locations, naked women, an avant garde soundtrack - and it features one of Lina Romay’s most committed performances. This world Blu Ray premier includes a number of exclusive extra features
