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:

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.

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.

P.O. BOX TINTO BRASS
Italian director Tinto Brass is known as the absolute master of erotica, creator of works like All Ladies Do It, Frivolous Lola and Paprika. His gift at 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 1000 Copies includes exclusively the Documentary; IsTintoBrass, and a 48-page Photo book of unpublished images from the Tinto Brass Archives by right-hand set photographer Gianfranco Salis.

ISTINTOBRASS
In this documentary Tinto Brass talks candidly about his long-life 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 the beginnings on up to the films on power, such as the Nazi-brothel melodrama of Salon Kitty and the infamous Caligula, which was enormously successful with the public. To this very day, Brass remains an icon of erotic pleasure and voyeurism, and his story is revealed in the tales of Gigi Proietti, Serena Grandi, Helen Mirren, Franco Nero and Sir Ken Adam, among others.

Plot Summary:

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.

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.

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.

Told through over 40 first-person recollections from friends, family, colleagues and historians – plus rare clips and archival interviews with Adamson himself – BLOOD & FLESH is the award-winning chronicle of bikers, go-go dancers, porn stars, aging actors, freak-out girls, Charles Manson, Colonel Sanders, alien conspiracies and homicidal contractors that House Of Mortal Cinema calls “Brilliant stuff… a superb documentary and one of the top films of the year.”

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.

Like a distant cousin of Fulci's disturbing dream logic, Jen-Chieh Chang disturbs and disorients with a messy mélange of atrocities in this slimy specimen of Taiwanese Horror.

Now Shana must become a real life action hero to avenge the deaths of the ones she loved. Directed by multi-media artist Eames Demetrios (grandson of the renowned designers Charles and Ray Eames), Danger USA is high concept mash-up of genre plotlines, and gonzo set-pieces with a killer synth score, to boot!
