There are no censorship issues with this release.
UK: Passed Suitable for 18 years and over uncut for:
  • 2022 Powerhouse Films/Indicator Limited Edition R0 Blu-ray at UK Amazon #ad released on 25th April 2022

Promotional Material

Once dubbed the 'King of Sexploitation' by the tabloid press, Stanley Long was the godfather of the British sex film. Starting out with 8mm striptease reels in the 1950s before moving into nudist documentaries, Long went on to produce and direct a string of extremely popular X-rated movies which told tales of wife swapping, groupies and other saucy goings on. He reached the pinnacle of commercial success with this trio of incredibly successful 'on the job' sex comedies.

Adventures of a Taxi Driver, starring sitcom actor Barry Evans, set the template with the antics of a cabbie who 'gets more than his fare share'. Securing international distribution - as well as becoming the most successful comedy at the British box office in 1976 - it prompted two sequels, each featuring more of the same but with a different lead actor (future hit-record producer Christopher Neil).

Boasting supporting casts which burst with top-tier British acting talent - including Harry H Corbett (Steptoe and Son), Diana Dors (Berserk), Judy Geeson (Inseminoid), Suzy Kendall (To Sir, with Love), future musical theatre sensation Elaine Paige, and former Doctor Who Jon Pertwee - the Adventures series represents British popular filmmaking at its most unashamedly cheeky."

A coming of age story centering on the exploits of a young girl during summer vacation.

US: Uncut and MPAA Unrated for:

Taking its name from the ironic moniker for late 1960s and '70s New York, Fun City Editions is a new boutique label focused on reissues of maverick repertory cinema and music that can best be described as works that exist "outside of their time." Spanning an array of genres, artists and countries, but with a unifying focus on forgotten and overlooked treasures, each Fun City release, be it a Blu-ray or vinyl LP, will present new restorations and comprehensive extras which contextualize and illuminate the artistic and historic value of the piece. Vinegar Syndrome's sister company, OCN Distribution, is thrilled to be representing this diverse and unique home video line!

Cult favorite Patti D'Arbanville (Andy Warhol's Flesh, Big Wednesday and Rancho Deluxe) essays the title role in Bilitis, the directorial debut of photographer David Hamilton. Based on the erotic nineteenth century poetry of Pierre Louÿs, the film's script was co-written by filmmaker and novelist Catherine Breillat (A Real Young Girl and Fat Girl). Spending the summer in the French countryside with elegant and beautiful family friend Barbara (Mona Kristensen), young Bilitis comes of age and learns valuable--if sometimes painful--lessons about intimacy, romance and love. D'Arbanville, who had been part of Warhol's Factory and was the inspiration for some of Cat Stevens' most beloved songs, effectively plays the sheltered young woman who becomes steadily wiser as the story progresses. The film is considerably elevated by the sumptuous score by famed French composer Francis Lai (Love Story and A Man and a Woman), which became a worldwide best-selling record. Hamilton's trademark soft focus photographic style is faithfully rendered on film by the cinematography of Bernard Daillencourt (Walerian Borowczyk's Immoral Tales, La Marge and The Beast). Bilitis has been richly restored in 4K, from the original camera negative, for this first-ever North American Blu-ray edition.

Special Features and Technical Specs:

  • NEW 4K RESTORATION FROM THE ORIGINAL CAMERA NEGATIVE
  • Video interview with camera operator Noël Very
  • Newly recorded audio commentary by critics Alexandra Heller-Nicholas and Josh Nelson
  • Booklet with a new essay by Samm Deighan

Crazy Nights is a 1978 Italy musical music documentary by Joe D'Amato.
Starring Amanda Lear. IMDb

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!

Laura Gemser returns to the role that made her famous in this scintillating work of depraved erotica, one of the many controversial entries in Italian director Joe D'Amato's Black Emanuelle series. EMANUELLE AND THE WHITE SLAVE TRADE (aka LA VIA DELLA PROSTITUZIONE and EMANUELLE AND THE GIRLS OF MADAME CLAUDE) sees Gemser's comely and sexually curious journalist tracking down a notorious Mafia boss to the jungles of Kenya in hopes of interviewing him for her newspaper. Along the way, Emanuelle inadvertently stumbles upon an even more sensational story, that of a vile international white slavery ring, run by the sadistic Madame Claude. Once again, Emanuelle must go undercover, this time as a prostitute in Madame Claude's clandestine San Diego bordello, engaging in all manner of carnal couplings while secretly working to bring down the Madame's evil empire.

One of Osamu Tezukas most adult and sexually-charged works, Barbara (1973-74) was originally serialized as a follow-up to Ayako (1972-73) in Big Comic from July 1973 to May 1974. Barbara is an adult-orientated fantasy tale filled with love and the occult from Osamu Tezukas reimagining of The Tales of Hoffmann. Its story deals with the erotic and bizarre experiences of a famous novelist called Yosuke Mikura whose life is tossed upside down by a mysterious girl named Barbara. The controversial story, dealing with various taboos such as forbidden love, mystery, art, Eros, scandal and occultism, was said to have been impossible to be cinematized at the time of its original publication, but was made into a live-action film for the 90th Anniversary of Osamu Tezukas birth by his son Macoto Tezka (The Legend of the Stardust Brothers)

    From the director of the legendarily bonkers Erotic Ghost Story comes an altogether more lubricious slice of adults-only action, one that more than lives up to its title.

    Branded with Hong Kong's infamous Category III rating for its commitment to carnality and starring amply endowed icon of Sino sex cinema Amy Yip (Sex and Zen), the supernatural studs at 88 Films are proud to present the UK Blu Ray premier of this soft-core classic - completely uncut.

    Promotional Material

    Based on Oniroku Dan's famous Japanese novel, FLOWER AND SNAKE is the first Nikkatsu erotic film to deal with the subject of sadomasochism. Makoto (Yasuhiko Ishizu) is a sexually suppressed man living with his mother Miyo (Hiroko Fuji) who owns an adult toy store. When he was a child, Makoto remembers shooting a soldier whom he found having sex with his mother. The elderly man who owns the company Makoto works for has an interest in BDSM and wants Makoto to kidnap and train his wife (Naomi Tani) to submit to him. With Makoto battling the demons of his past and unsure of the consequences of his own sexual awakening, what transpires is one of the most shocking, perverse and jaw-dropping Nikkatsu films ever made.

    Remastered by Nikkatsu Studios in high-definition, FLOWER AND SNAKE is one of Impulse Pictures' most-requested titles to be released in our continuing Nikkatsu adult film collection.

    SINS OF THE FLESH - A story of sex without love, from the director of PUSSY TALK!

    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.
