THE DEVIL IN MADDALENA - Starring Lisa Gastoni, an erotic icon of Italian auteur cinema.

Maddalena (Lisa Gastoni) is a young sensual woman, with a tormented soul. Separated from her husband, who won't grant her a divorce, she desperately seeks true and sincere love. During one of her erotic parties, she meets a young priest (Eric Woofe), who is dragged in front of her for a bet. Maddalena sees in the priest, doubtful about his ability to cope with his oath of celibacy, her own spiritual and physical salvation. She therefore decides to seduce him and become a constant presence in his life.

Long sought by collectors, THE DEVIL IN MADDALENA is one of those lost films worth being recovered. Both for the presence of the disturbing Lisa Gastoni, an erotic icon of Italian auteur cinema, and for the beautiful score by maestro Ennio Morricone, considered one of his finest works. The movie has been fully restored firstly from its original negative.

DEATH SCREAMS In one of the most unlikely cinematic pairings of all time, David Nelson (who rose to fame as a child star playing alongside his real-life family in the wholesome TV show The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet) directs Playboy Playmate and adult star Susan Kiger in this bodycount-heavy, long overlooked slice of Southern fried hack-and-slash - 1982s Death Screams! Late one night, a young couple are brutally murdered at a make-out spot by an unseen assailant, their bodies tossed into the nearby river. As the lifeless lovers drift slowly downstream, the residents of the town excitedly prepare themselves for their annual carnival, unaware that a machete-wielding maniac with a twisted grudge is lurking in their midst. When a group of teen revellers plan a late-night after party down in the local cemetery, they unwittingly set the stage for a bloodbath. Death Screams, which was released on US VHS as House of Death (and on UK DVD with the reels in the wrong order!) oozes early 80s regional slasher charm from its every pore, boasting an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink final reel featuring slashed throats, bisected bodies and exploding heads. At long last arriving on Blu-ray and lovingly restored from the only-known existing 35mm print, this little-seen slasher classic is ready to carve its way into the bleeding hearts of horror fans everywhere!

    US: Uncut and MPAA Unrated for:

    Promotional Material

    Italian exploitation icon Joe D'Amato's outrageous and rarely seen 1978 mondo movie meltdown CRAZY NIGHTS (aka Follie di notte) is one the strangest snapshots of the disco era you'll ever see. The legendary and controversial performer Amanda Lear appears here as herself, singing her signature dance floor hit Follow Me while D'Amato's camera uses her as an entry point into the glamorous, eccentric, often depraved annals of Rome's after hours nightclub scene. But that's only scratching the surface.

    CRAZY NIGHTS then meanders - in true mondo fashion - all over the world, filling the screen with strippers, sex and ritualistic absurdity, all set to the beat of Lear's sultry cabaret pop sound. Lear - who famously dated David Bowie, was the cover girl for many Roxy Music records and long served as Salvador Dali's lover and muse - was at the peak of her popularity when she signed on to film CRAZY NIGHTS.

    Originally pitched as a musical centered around her fame called FOLLOW ME, Lear believed the movie to be incomplete until - to her shock - it turned up in Italian theaters under the name Follie di notte. Horrified to discover that she had been tricked into starring in a full-blown exploitation film, Lear sued the producers, one of many reasons CRAZY NIGHTS has lapsed into virtual obscurity.

    Full Moon is pumped to be presenting this delirious and decidedly adult pseudo-documentary in its fully uncut edit, remastered from the original negative. Get ready for the wildest and weirdest mondo movie ever made!

    The distributor chose to reduce bloody injury detail in a suicide scene in order to obtain a 15 classification. An uncut 18 classification was available.

    Of course the BBFC is referring to vertical wrist slitting which is disallowed at 15.

    See the uncut scene in video from streamable.com . Ben comments:

    I've seen the uncut footage and 18 is absurdly harsh. It's demonic possession and *technically* self-harm, but not an attempted suicide at all as the BBFC called it. You see glass and blood on the man's wrist but no clear sign of process and injury

    Starring

    • Disorder

    UK: Passed aggregate 18 uncut for:

    Promotional Material

    Now recognised as one of French cinema's finest talents courtesy of such modern classics as Carlos , Summer Hours and Clouds of Sils Maria , Olivier Assayas started out as a critic and screenwriter before making his debut feature as director in 1986.

    Disorder tells the tale of a post-punk band whose friendships are tested when a music store robbery turns fatal. It marked Assayas as a talent to be reckoned with. The intimate story of Winter's Child built on that reputation and showed his remarkable gifts with actors, while in Irma Vep Assayas turned his attention to the French film industry to provide a mid-90s amalgam of François Truffaut's Day for Night and Rainer Werner Fassbinder's Beware of a Holy Whore , delighting audiences around the world and featuring a stand-out turn by Maggie Cheung playing a version of herself. Meanwhile, the startlingly prescient neo-noir/cyberhorror masterpiece Demonlover , takes a darker turn to present a chilling exploration of the nexus between sex and violence available at the click of a button, riffing on Cronenberg's Videodrome and with an iconic score by art-rock pioneers, Sonic Youth.

    Witty, heartfelt, and daring, Assayas remains one of the most interesting international filmmakers working today. No two films are quite alike. His work is vital, unexpected, and unmissable for any true lover of film.

    A small rural town and a family of outsiders, both trapped in the demonic grip of The Brotherhood of Satan! Recently widowed Ben, his glamourous girlfriend Nicky and his small daughter K.T. are on a road trip across the Southwest, which comes to a screeching halt when they witness an accident. Heading to the nearby isolated desert town of Hillsboro to report it to the Sheriff (played by L.Q. Jones), they are met with a hostile reaction from the locals, who are gripped by paranoia and fear due to a series of gruesome deaths, as well as the mysterious disappearance of eleven of the communitys children. As the bodies continue to pile up around them, Ben and his family find themselves joining the sheriff, a local priest and the towns enigmatic physician Doc Duncan (Strother Martin, Cool Hand Luke) in the midst of a mystery that points towards a deadly satanic cult...

    Produced by Alvy Moore and L.Q. Jones, a veteran character actor best known for his work with Sam Peckinpah, The Brotherhood of Satan is an atmospheric and chilling tale of terror that provides a crucial missing link between Rosemarys Baby (1968) and The Devils Rain (1975) in the cycle of turn-of-the-seventies shockers involving sinister devil-worshipping cults lurking within the dark shadows of modern-day America.

    Summary Notes

    In the far future, a duke and his family are sent by the Emperor to a sand world from which comes a spice that is essential for interstellar travel.

    Following a notorious aborted attempt by Alejandro Jodorowsky in the 1970s, Frank Herbert's bestselling sci-fi epic Dune finally made it to the big screen as the third film by emerging surrealist wunderkind David Lynch, featuring an all-star cast that includes several of Lynch's regular collaborators.

    The year is 10,191, and four planets are embroiled in a secret plot to wrest control of the Spice Melange, the most precious substance in the universe and found only on the planet Arrakis. A feud between two powerful dynasties, House Atreides and House Harkonnen, is manipulated from afar by ruling powers that conspire to keep their grip on the spice. As the two families clash on Arrakis, Duke Atreides' son Paul (Kyle MacLachlan, in his screen debut) finds himself at the center of an intergalactic war and an ancient prophecy that could change the galaxy forever.

    Though its initial reception ensured that Lynch largely eschewed mainstream filmmaking for the rest of his career, Dune has since been rightly re-evaluated as one of the most startlingly original and visionary science fiction films of the 1980s. Its astonishing production design and visual effects can now be appreciated anew in this spellbinding 4K restoration, accompanied by hours of comprehensive bonus features.

    With the giallo at its peak in the early 70s, it seemed that every filmmaker working in Italy was vying to make one and put their unique creative stamp on this highly popular genre. Presented here are a trio of early 70s gialli, all directed by filmmakers who had never made one before (or after) and all presenting wildly different approaches to the genre's most prevalent trappings.

    THE GIRL IN ROOM 2A: After being released from prison, Margaret ( Daniela Giordano ) goes to stay at a halfway house for female ex-cons, run by the kindly Mrs. Grant. It's not long before she begins experiencing strange happenings in the old house, and things take an even more unsettling turn when she befriends Charlie, who is searching for his sister, who disappeared after staying in the house.

    A bizarre giallo directed by American exploitation filmmaker, William L. Rose & produced by globe trotting sleaze impresario, Dick Randall, THE GIRL IN ROOM 2A ('House of Fear' in Italian) plays like an American roughie that's been dressed as a murder mystery. Vinegar Syndrome is pleased to present this in a brand new 2K restoration of its original 35mm camera negative & in its longest and most complete version ever presented on disc!

    THE FRENCH SEX MURDERS: Following the brutal death of a prostitute at a Parisian brothel, grizzled Inspector Fontaine ( Robert Sacchi ) is brought in to investigate. After implicating Antoine ( Peter Martell ), a petty thief & regular client of the murdered woman, Fontaine believes the case to be closed. However, after Antoine makes a daring attempt to escape, getting decapitated in the process, those affiliated with implicating him begin to meet their own violent ends. Has Antoine's vengeful spirit returned to kill those he believes responsible for his own gruesome fate, or has another, more sinister character been behind these diabolical murders from the very beginning?

    A sublimely trashy giallo produced by Dick Randall and helmed by assistant director, Ferdinando Merighi, THE FRENCH SEX MURDERS straddles the line between a clever murder mystery and a distinctly 70s sleaze-fest. Vinegar Syndrome is proud to present the world Blu-ray debut of this cult favorite, newly restored from its original 35mm camera negative!

    MY DEAR KILLER: After a man is decapitated at a construction site, Inspector Luca Peretti ( George Hilton ) is assigned to the case. But what initially seems to be an isolated killing soon paves the way for an ever growing number of vicious murders. As Peretti tries to unmask the killer, he discovers that all of the victims were connected to another shocking & unsolved crime - the horrific murder of a young girl.

    Directed by Tonino Valerii, MY DEAR KILLER was his sole foray into the giallo genre. The result is a handsomely produced and unrelenting mystery-thriller that revels in clever twists and brutally depicted murders. Vinegar Syndrome is proud to present this sleeper masterpiece of prime era giallo cinema on Blu-ray, from a stunning new 4K restoration of its 35mm original negative.

    Bonus Features:
    1. 3-disc Region Free Blu-ray Set
    2. Newly scanned & restored in 2k or 4k from their 35mm original negatives

    A group of scientists are working in a lab located on a distant planet. One of them, Sandy, is attacked, raped and impregnated by a monstrous creature. She then begins to stalk her colleagues one by one, killing them and drinking their blood.

    Boasting a strong female cast - including Judy Geeson (10 Rillington Place), Stephanie Beacham (Tam-Lin) and Victoria Tennant (Flowers in the Attic) - and co-financed by Run Run Shaw of the Shaw Brothers, Inseminoid is among Norman J Warren's most widely seen films... and his most infamous. Once listed as a 'video nasty', this science-fiction horror concerns a small crew of scientists who are terrorised by a creature on a distant planet. Comparisons with Ridley Scott's Alien have been ever-present, though Inseminoid has a charm all of it's own - it may not have the gloss or the budget, but it's certainly a great deal of fun.

    In the 1960s, director Robert Hartford-Davis (The Black Torment, The Fiend) teamed up with producer/cameraman Peter Newbrook (The Asphyx) to make a series of low-budget films capitalising on the cinematic crazes of the day. In 1968, the duo stridently ventured into the surgical horror subgenre with Corruption, a grim update of Eyes Without a Face, transposed into the scenic south-coast seaside town of Seaford, via Swinging Sixties London.

    In a surprising performance, Peter Cushing (Captain Clegg, The Revenge of Frankenstein) stars as a high-class plastic surgeon who is driven to murder as part of a demented quest to rebuild the decaying visage of his fashion model wife (Sue Lloyd, The Ipcress File), who has been severely scarred at a party.

    A film that pushed the envelope of gore and sleaze in its era, Corruption is presented on home video for the first time in the UK.

    A Jewish physician in Nazi-occupied Prague is compelled to work cataloguing the homes and possessions of his countrymen as they are displaced to designated ghettos. When he helps an injured resistance fighter, he is plunged into a moral and ethical dilemma, and begins a nightmarish odyssey to help save the man.

    Focussing on the intense anxiety, paranoia and terror prevalent in a fascist state, Zbynek Brynych's The Fifth Horseman is Fear subverts its historical context, creating an expressionistic, thinly disguised allegory about communist Czechoslovakia -- or indeed living under any totalitarian system - that is richly atmospheric and frighteningly real.

    Blind Beast is a grotesque portrait of the bizarre relationship between a blind sculptor and his captive muse, adapted from a short story from Japans foremost master of the macabre, Edogawa Rampo ( Horrors of Malformed Men, The Black Lizard, Caterpillar).

    An artists model, Aki (Mako Midori), is abducted, and awakens in a dark warehouse studio whose walls are decorated with outsized womens body parts eyes, lips, legs and breasts and dominated by two recumbent giant statues of male and female nudes. Her kidnapper introduces himself as Michio (Eiji Funakoshi), a blind sculptor whom she had witnessed previously at an exhibition in which she featured intently caressing a statue of her naked torso. Michio announces his intention of using her to sculpt the perfect female form. At first defiant, she eventually succumbs to his intense fixation on her body and finds herself drawn into his sightless world, in which touch is everything.

    Blind Beast is a masterpiece of erotic horror that explores the all-encompassing and overwhelming relationship between the artist and his art and the obsessive closed world that the artist inhabits, with maestro director Yasuzo Masumura ( Giants and Toys, Irezumi) conjuring up a hallucinogenic dreamworld in which sensual and creative urges combine with a feverish intensity.

    Following the success of his debut feature, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, distributor Titanus tasked writer/director Dario Argento with delivering a follow-up in short order. The resulting film, granted a greatly enhanced budget and heralded in its US marketing campaign as nine times more suspenseful than its predecessor, was The Cat O Nine Tails.

    When a break-in occurs at a secretive genetics institute, blind puzzle-maker Franco Arnò (Karl Malden, Patton, One-Eyed Jacks), who overheard an attempt to blackmail one of the institutes scientists shortly before the robbery, teams up with intrepid reporter Carlo Giordani (James Franciscus, Beneath the Planet of the Apes) to crack the case. But before long the bodies begin to pile up and the two amateur sleuths find their own lives imperiled in their search for the truth. And worse still, Lori (Cinzia De Carolis, Cannibal Apocalypse), Francos young niece, may also be in killers sights

    This second entry in the so-called Animal Trilogy found Argento further refining his distinctive style and cementing his reputation as the master of the giallo thriller. Co-starring Catherine Spaak ( Il Sorpasso) and Rada Rassimov ( Baron Blood), and featuring another nerve-jangling score by the great Ennio Morricone ( The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly), The Cat O Nine Tails remains one of Argentos most suspenseful and underrated films.

    Viva (2007) is a cult retro spectacle about a bored 1970s housewife who gets sucked into the sexual revolution. Abandoned by her perfect Ken-doll husband, Barbi (writer/director Anna Biller, The Love Witch) is dragged into trouble by her girlfriend, who spouts women's lib as she gets Barbi to discard her bra and go out on the town. Barbi becomes a Red Riding Hood in a sea of wolves, and quickly learns a lot more than she wanted to about the different kinds of scenes going on in the wild '70s, including nudist camps, the hippie scene, orgies, bisexuality, sadism, drugs, and bohemia. Viva is a highly stylized film that draws on classic exploitation cinema and vintage Playboy magazines for its look and characters. Saturated to the hilt with vibrant color, and exquisitely detailed in its depiction of the period, Viva looks like a lost film from 1972, even down to the campy and self-assured performances, the big lighting, the plethora of negligées, and the delirious assortment of Salvation Army ashtrays, lamps, fabrics, and bric-a-brac. Whether you're looking for naked people dancing, alcoholic swingers, stylish sex scenes, a sea of polyester, Hammond organ jams, glitzy show numbers, white horses, blondes in the bathtub, gay hairdressers, or psychedelic animation, Viva has it all!

    The Cat o'Nine Tails is a 1971 Italy / France / West Germany mystery thriller by Dario Argento.
    Starring James Franciscus, Karl Malden and Catherine Spaak. Melon Farmers link  BBFC link 2020  IMDb

    The BBFC AA rated 1971 cinema release was cut, but the BBFC database claims it to be uncut. The contradiction hasn't been fully explained but there may be a combination of pre-cuts and BBFC cuts. The 18 rated VHS was slightly shortened for video and 2002 DVD. The same versions was reduced to a 15 rating in 2005. The same version is unrated in the US but the PG rated version is heavily cut.

    UK: Previously passed 15 uncut for strong violence:

    Censorship History

    Thanks to Tim who has kindly provided new information about cuts for the 1971 AA rated cinema release.

    Despite what the BBFC website states the film does appear to have been cut for an AA rating in 1971 as a cuts list is recorded on the BBFC's Register of Exceptions. The MFB reported a running time of 104m for the UK theatrical release compared to 111m for the uncut version meaning there must have been additional distributor cuts as well (or else the distributor had an edited print). Here is the BBFC cuts list [with my annotations estimating cuts to be in the range 1m to 1.5m]:

    • Reel 2 - Reduce the scene in which the photographer is garrotted especially removing big close-ups of his contorted face. [~10s]
      - Shorten the opening shots in the transvestites' club so that some of the more obvious perverts are not seen. [~20s of shots of Carlo walking past homosexuals and men in drag]
    • Reel 3 - Considerably reduce the garrotting of Bianca, especially remove all shots of her face being banged against the carpet, spittle and blood coming from her mouth etc so that her face on the carpet is only seen after she is dead. [~20s]
    • Reel 4 - Remove the shots of Anna stripping to the waist. [~11s, two shots plus bridging shot of Carlo]
    • Reel 6 - Shorten both fights, removing close-ups of bloodstained faces and in the second fight also remove the knee kicks.

    Promotional Material

    Following the success of his debut feature, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage , distributor Titanus tasked writer/director Dario Argento with delivering a follow-up in short order. The resulting film, granted a greatly enhanced budget and heralded in its US marketing campaign as "nine times more suspenseful" than its predecessor, was The Cat O' Nine Tails .

    When a break-in occurs at a secretive genetics institute, blind puzzle-maker Franco Arnò (Karl Malden, Patton , One-Eyed Jacks ), who overheard an attempt to blackmail one of the institute's scientists shortly before the robbery, teams up with intrepid reporter Carlo Giordani (James Franciscus, Beneath the Planet of the Apes ) to crack the case. But before long the bodies begin to pile up and the two amateur sleuths find their own lives imperilled in their search for the truth. And worse still, Lori (Cinzia De Carolis, Cannibal Apocalypse ), Franco's young niece, may also be in killer's sights...

    This second entry in the so-called "Animal Trilogy" found Argento further refining his distinctive style and cementing his reputation as the master of the giallo thriller. Co-starring Catherine Spaak ( Il Sorpasso ) and Rada Rassimov ( Baron Blood ), and featuring another nerve-jangling score by the great Ennio Morricone ( The Bird with the Crystal Plumage , The Good, The Bad and the Ugly ), The Cat O' Nine Tails remains one of Argento's most suspenseful and underrated films.

    Promotional Material

    Blind Beast is a grotesque portrait of the bizarre relationship between a blind sculptor and his captive muse, adapted from a short story from Japans foremost master of the macabre, Edogawa Rampo (Horrors of Malformed Men, The Black Lizard, Caterpillar). An artists model, Aki (Mako Midori), is abducted, and awakens in a dark warehouse studio whose walls are decorated with outsized womens body parts eyes, lips, legs and breasts and dominated by two recumbent giant statues of male and female nudes. Her kidnapper introduces himself as Michio (Eiji Funakoshi), a blind sculptor whom she had witnessed previously at an exhibition in which she featured intently caressing a statue of her naked torso. Michio announces his intention of using her to sculpt the perfect female form. At first defiant, she eventually succumbs to his intense fixation on her body and finds herself drawn into his sightless world, in which touch is everything.

    Blind Beast is a masterpiece of erotic horror that explores the all-encompassing and overwhelming relationship between the artist and his art and the obsessive closed world that the artist inhabits, with maestro director Yasuzo Masumura (Giants and Toys, Irezumi) conjuring up a hallucinogenic dreamworld in which sensual and creative urges combine with a feverish intensity.

    A group of college-aged ornithologists have taken a class trip deep into the wilderness on a quest to find and study a rare and possibly extinct species of bird. Despite receiving ominous warnings, both human and avian, they set up camp in a musty old house, only to find themselves under siege from mysterious supernatural forces. But it's not just the house or the hoards of hungry birds that they have to worry about, they quickly realize that they're also going to have to contend with a group of bloodthirsty zombies, who have descended on the deserted farmhouse!

    A positively jaw-dropping slice of late 80s horror, as only Italians are capable of imagining, Claudio Lattanzi's Zombie 5 (aka Killing Birds and Raptors) is an 'everything but the kitchen sink' styled thriller which piles on gore and insane plot twists. Starring Lara Wendel (Tenebre) and Robert Vaughn (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), and produced by exploitation auteur Joe D'Amato (Anthropophagus), 88 Films brings Zombie 5 to Blu-ray newly restored from the original negative.

It soon becomes clear that a crazed fan is using his 'Slasherman' comic as inspiration for the killings. As the bodies pile up and Todd's friends become victims themselves, Todd is forced to face the killer and put an end to his notorious comic once and for all.

    All About Eve is a 1950 US drama by Joseph L. Mankiewicz
    Starring Bette Davis, Anne Baxter and George Sanders BBFC link 2020 IMDb

    There are no censorship issues with this release beyond noting probable misinformation in the BBFC's shoddy new database.

    The latest cinema certificate is U uncut but the latest video certificate listed in the BBFC database suggests that the film is 12 rated for bleeped strong language.

    I don't suppose there is any bleeped strong language in this classic movie from 1950 so presumably this rating actually applies to something like a commentary track. Of course there is absolutely no indication that this is the case in the BBFC's shoddy database. The package 12 rating for disk extras rather adds to the suggestion that the feature itself is 12 rated.

    Summary Notes

    Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) is waiting backstage to meet her idol, talented but aging Broadway star Margo Channing (Bette Davis). It seems innocent enough as Eve explains that she has seen Margo in EVERY performance of her current play. Margo and her friends take Eve under their wing but only theatre critic Addison DeWitt (George Sanders) sees through Eve's evil plan, which is to take Margo's parts and her fiancé, Bill Simpson (Gary Merrill) too.

    Directed by Domenico Paolella (The Prey/The Story of a Cloistered Nun), The Nun and the Devil AKA Le Monache di Sant'Arcangelo is a headily erotic tale of seduction and persecution detailing the sinful practices which spill out of a 16th century convent. When the psychotically ambitious Sister Julia (Anna Heywood) vies to take the place of a dying Mother Superior by any means possible, other inmates start to lose their way, indulging in heterosexual flings and lesbian coupling. But things take a nasty turn when the nuns are subjected to a violent inquisition and their existence becomes one of torture and degradation.

    Made just two years after Ken Russell's notorious The Devils (1971), this 1973 film sought to offer a corruption of the innocent style plot which monopolised on the short-lived wave of nunsploitation features, incorporating graphic horrors, soft-pornography and historical drama. Loosely based on authentic records, this sordid tale of religion and power will delight lovers of extreme Italian exploitation cinema.

    THE FINAL ROLE OF FILM LEGEND MARLENE DIETRICH

    Paul von Przygodski (David Bowie), a young Prussian gentleman, arrives in the trenches in time to be caught in the final explosion of the Great War. After recuperating in a military hospital, where he is mistaken for a French hero, he returns to Berlin. His family home has been turned into a boarding house, his father (Rudolf Schu¨ndler) is paralyzed, and his mother (Maria Schell) is working in the Turkish baths.

    Attempting to find a new purpose, his childhood friend, Cilly (Sydne Rome), abandons him for fame and fortune; his former commanding officer, Captain Kraft (David Hemmings), tries to persuade him to join his right-wing movement and a widow, Helga von Kaiserling (Kim Novak), briefly seduces him with the finer things in life.

    In a society where the individual comes first and anyone can be bought, he is recruited by Baroness von Semering (Marlene Dietrich) as one in her regiment of gigolos. The cynical and decadent world of entertaining rich widows leads an increasingly disillusioned Paul to a poignant, chilling end.

    The Pawnbroker is a 1964 USA drama by Sidney Lumet.
    Starring Rod Steiger and Geraldine Fitzgerald and Brock Peters. BBFC link 2020  IMDb

    Uncut by the BBFC but the censors seem unsure as to the rating. The cinema release in 1964 was X rated, for 1998 VHS it was 12 rated, but for 2021 Blu-ray release the rating had been elevated to 15.

    Noted as the first Hollywood film since the Hayes Code was introduced that featured a topless scene, a rather serious flashback to the Holocaust.

    After the filmmakers appealed to the MPAA's appeals board to oppose censoring the film, it became the first U.S. film to show a nude woman from the waist up and be granted a Production Code Seal.

    [Note that a year earlier the first modern day topless scene appeared in a Hollywood movie Promises! Promises! showing Jayne Mansfield's breasts. However this film did not get MPAA approval and had to be released unrated].

    Sol Nazerman (Rod Steiger), a survivor of the concentration camps, which took the lives of his wife and children. Managing a New York pawn shop, he is bereft of hope and takes refuge in condemnation of humanity while seemingly numb to the circumstances of the prostitutes, pimps and thieves that frequent his store. Yet there are those who strive to connect with him, even as their intrusion into his world threatens the protective cynicism within which he has wrapped himself for so long.

    Oscar®-nominated* for his performance, Steiger firmly established his credentials as an actor of international standing, wonderfully supported here by Geraldine Fitzgerald ( Wuthering Heights ) and Brock Peters ( To Kill a Mockingbird ). The film also boasts a score from the legendary Quincy Jones.

    The Blood of Millions is on his hands!

    From the fevered mind of the notorious Jess Franco (BARBED WIRE DOLLS) comes 1987's ANGEL OF DEATH (aka COMMANDO MENGELE), a deranged free-fall into ''Nazisploitaion'' that takes its cues from the blockbuster 1978 shocker THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL and delivers the sort of delirium that fans of French genre film studio Eurocine hunger for!

    When an attractive pair of young Nazi hunters exploring Uruguay accidentally stumble upon the lair of the maniacal war criminal Dr. Josef Mengele, they immediately live to regret it. There, deep in the sweltering jungles, Mengele has continued his hideous human experiments, torturing, murdering and mutilating nubile virgins in the name of creating some sort of master race. Soon, mercenaries, monstrosities, femme fatales and vengeful concentration camp survivors face off, with bullets and bodies flying everywhere and Mengele holding cretinous court.

    Written by (under the name D. Khunn) and co-directed by Franco and completed by Italian trash movie maverick Andrea Bianchi (BURIAL GROUND: NIGHTS OF TERROR), the pair signed off on the film as ''Frank Drew White'', apparently too nervous to take credit for making this truly daft piece of unsavory exploitation.

    ANGEL OF DEATH is a fast-paced slice of vintage Eurocine mayhem, with an international cast that includes Franco regulars Jack Taylor, Antonio Mayans and Howard Vernon (as Mengele) along with Robert Mitchum's son Christopher and Shirley Knight from Franco's equally insane WHITE CANNIBAL QUEEN. Jump into the jungle with Jess and get ready for some prime cinematic insanity! Get ready for ANGEL OF DEATH, presented here in a beautiful, uncut master culled from the original 35mm camera negative.

    THE FRENCHMAN'S GARDEN - The gruesome story of one of Spain's most notorious serial killers - U.S. home video premiere!

    "The Frenchman" was what locals called the man who ran the bar and restaurant in the small town of Peñaflor in rural Spain in the early part of the 20th century. But Juan Andrés Aldije Monmejá was not your usual jolly inn keeper. He ran an illegal gambling den and pimped out the waitresses who worked for him, arranging abortions for them when the inevitable happened. Even though he was married to one of the richest women in town, Juan Andrés was not averse to visiting his own bordello for late night entertainment.

    Deciding that there were easier and quicker ways to exploit his customers, The Frenchman started slaughtering them, stealing their money and burying their corpses in the garden at the back of his inn. As his greed increased, so did the savagery of his murderous acts. It was not long before people started asking questions.

    This gruesome story of one of Spain's most notorious serial killers was a very personal project for Paul Naschy, who wrote, directed and acts in the film alongside two of the hottest female stars of the time. This macabre tale of a "black legend" from Spain's rural past was impossible to see for many years but is now available, fully uncut and restored, for the first time on US home video.
