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. Newly scanned in 2K from the original camera negative and directed with absolute grace by the mysterious Dietrich de Velsa (aka Francis Savel / Frantz Salieri): this former painter was also the owner and artistic director of one of the first transvestites' cabaret of Paris, La Grande Eugène. Years later, he collaborated with Joseph Losey on Mr. Klein and Don Giovanni. EQUATION TO AN UNKNOWN is his only film and stands without a doubt as a masterpiece and the best French gay adult film ever made.

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.


P.O. Box Tinto Brass / IsTintoBrass (2 Disc Limited Edition)

Number of Discs: 2
Language: English, Italian
Aspect Ratio: Widescreen Anamorphic 1.85:1
Catalog #: CE166
UPC #: 881190016695
Format: Blu-ray
SRP: $49.95
Subtitles: English
Audio Format: DTS-HD MA 5.1 Surround

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.

Shot entirely on 16mm and featuring a hypnotic synth-driven score, this first-time feature film from director Tilman Singer pays homage to the Euro Horror sensibilities of Andrzej ?u?awski’s Possession while subverting and re-inventing the genre along with contemporaries like Panos Cosmatos (Mandy).

Antonio Mayans (aka Robert Foster of DEVIL HUNTER and HOT NIGHTS OF LINDA), Rocío Freixas (THE SINISTER DR. ORLOFF) and Elisa Vela (aka Jasmina Bell of MANSION OF THE LIVING DEAD) co-star in this fascinating Franco rarity from his Golden Films Internacional period, now featuring a 4k scan from the original negative and all-new Special Features.

Plot Summary:

During the same period that he was making the certifiably insane INCONFESSABLE ORGIES OF EMMANUELLE, SEXUAL STORY OF O and CRIES OF PLEASURE for Spain’s Golden Films Internacional, Goya Award winner Jess Franco also wrote and directed this delirious hybrid of sexy caper comedy, EuroSpy suspense thriller, hard-boiled erotic noir, and depraved fetish shocker complete with jaw-dropping girl-on-girl violence. Jess’ equally legendary partner/muse Lina Romay – here at her most lusciously uninhibited – stars with Antonio Mayans (CANNIBAL TERROR), Lorna Green (MACUMBA SEXUAL), Albino Graziani (MANSION OF THE LIVING DEAD) and even Jess himself in this “fast-moving and slyly humorous” (El Franconomicon) rarity, now scanned in 4k from the original negative with all-new Special Features.

Plot Summary:

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.

Plot Summary:

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.

Based on the classic novella by Nikolai Gogol – and previously adapted by Mario Bava as BLACK SUNDAY – the first horror film ever produced in the Soviet Union remains “genuinely frightening” (1001 Films You Must See Before You Die), “a visual grab bag of terror” (FilmInquiry.com) and “one of the best horror films of all time.” (IndieWire).
 
In 19th century Russia, a seminary student is forced to spend three nights with the corpse of a beautiful young witch. But when she rises from the dead to seduce him, it will summon a nightmare of fear, desire and the ultimate demonic mayhem. Bursting with startling imagery and stunning practical effects by directors Konstantin Yershov and Georgi Kropachyov, this “overlooked classic” (Paste Magazine) has influenced generations of directors for more than half a century and is still unlike any horror movie you’ve ever seen.

Armed with a modified shovel and a bag, Ryouichi roams the ruins of Japan killing zombies and collecting body parts to prove to grieving families that their infected loved ones are now at peace. Director Naoyoshi Kawamatsu presents a moving story set in a horrific dystopian future with his independent masterpiece, UNDERTAKER.

Plot Summary:

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.

Audio Format: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo

Plot Summary:

An unsung talent in her lifetime, director, professor and Fulbright scholar Nietzchka Keene’s stark, stunning debut feature THE JUNIPER TREE is loosely based on a Brothers Grimm fairy tale of the same name, and stars Björk in her first on-screen performance. The film premiered to glowing reviews at the Sundance Film Festival in 1991 and led Keene to further direct HEROINE OF HELL (1996) starring Catherine Keener and BAREFOOT TO JERUSALEM (2008), the latter completed after her tragically early death in 2004.
 
Set in medieval Iceland, THE JUNIPER TREE follows Margit (Björk in a riveting performance) and her older sister Katla (Bryndis Petra Bragadottir) as they flee for safety after their mother is burned to death for witchcraft. Finding shelter and protection with Johan (Valdimar Orn Fygenring), and his resentful young son, Jonas (Geirlaug Sunna Pormar), the sisters help form an impromptu family unit that’s soon strained by Katla’s burgeoning sorcery. Photographed entirely on location in the stunning landscapes of Iceland in spectacular black-and-white by Randy Sellars, THE JUNIPER TREE is a deeply atmospheric film, evocative of Carl Theodor Dreyer’s DAY OF WRATH and Ingmar Bergman’s THE VIRGIN SPRING, and filled with indelible waking dream sequences (courtesy of legendary experimental filmmaker Pat O’Neill). A potent allegory for misogyny and its attendant tragedies, THE JUNIPER TREE is a major rediscovery for art house audiences.
 
New restoration by the Wisconsin Center for Film & Theater Research and The Film Foundation, with funding provided by the George Lucas Family Foundation.

Andrea Palmer (Katrina Zova) spends her days working as a cam girl. After having an online breakdown, she receives an unexpected and too-good-to-be-true offer to come to Los Angeles and work full time as an erotic model. Jumping on what seems like a perfect opportunity for financial independence, Andrea immediately travels to LA but no sooner than arriving, discovers that she's been conned and finds herself stranded and alone. Relying on what she knows best, she begins working as an escort, losing a bit of herself with each new client and becoming more and more willing to perform the most vile of sexual services; a decision which can only end in tragedy and violence.

Photographed in 16mm and co-starring Sheena Rose, Chad Alva, and the legendary William Margold in his final on screen performance, PORTRAITS OF ANDREA PALMER presents a nightmarish glimpse into a sexual hell where pleasure, pain, and perversity all blend into one.

Woman in a Box: Virgin Sacrifice and Zoom Up: Seiko’s Thigh

A young woman (Saeko Kizuki) is captured by a sadistic couple, locked in a wooden box and sexually tortured and abused.

Plot Summary:

Severin Films presents NIGHT KILLER – For the first time ever on Blu-ray and DVD!

Somewhere between ZOMBIE 4 and TROLL 2, writer/director Claudio Fragasso , here under the name ‘Clyde Anderson’, set out to direct a suspense thriller about a suicidal beauty, an unstable sleazebag and a masked killer with a razor-fingered glove. But when the producers received Fragasso’s cut, they hired his former partner Bruno Mattei (THE OTHER HELL, ROBOWAR) to shoot additional scenes of graphic gore and released it in Italy as TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3.

 The result is part sicko giallo, part depraved slasher and 100% batsh*t insanity that Euro Fever calls “Disturbing, nasty and more inspired than most Italian horror of the early ‘90s.” Peter Hooten (INGLORIOUS BASTARDS) and Tara Buckman (SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT) star in this glorious slice of ItaloSleaze, co-written by Rossella Drudi (SHOCKING DARK), now scanned in 4k from the original negative.

Plot Summary:

Arbelos Films Presents MUTUAL APPRECIATION – Indie auteur Andrew Bujalski’s character study of 20-somethings in contemporary New York City – never before released on Blu-ray!
 
An instant critic’s darling upon its release in 2006, MUTUAL APPRECIATION is at once an utterly timeless and distinctly mid-aughts portrait of the ebb and flow of twenty-something life in New York City. Richly observed and deeply humanist, the film follows Alan (Justin Rice), an aspiring musician, who crash-lands in town following the breakup of his band in Boston, immediately taking up with his old friends Ellie (Rachel Clift) and Lawrence (writer-director Andrew Bujalski) while negotiating the affections of a local radio DJ (Seung-Min Lee). In the tradition of Éric Rohmer, John Cassavetes and Jacques Rivette, Bujalski crafts a deft yet unassuming generational statement that finds its inspiration less in plot than in sharply drawn relationships and captivating conversations. Lovingly lensed in intimate 16mm black & white film, MUTUAL APPRECIATION is a generous and witty ode to the friendships that hallmark our awkward and enthralling post-collegiate years.
 
Mutual Appreciation, along with 2002’s equally lauded FUNNY HA HA, signaled the triumphant arrival of indie auteur Bujalski, who has gone on to write and direct a suite of critically acclaimed features including BEESWAX (2009), COMPUTER CHESS (2013), RESULTS (2015) and 2018’s SUPPORT THE GIRLS.
