GRINDHOUSE cinemas could once be found in the sleaziest and run-down areas of America's grimiest cities. New York's 42nd Street was one of the most famous trash pit hangouts for denizens of the lower depths. >From dusk 'till dawn the theatres would screen a mind-boggling assortment of movies featuring lashings of sex, gore and violence - and if you were lucky, you'd get all three! SEE for the first time ever on DVD in America you can now sit back and take a twisted trip back to the glory days of the sleazy 60s and 70s for a roaring rampage through a two-hour hand-picked collection of some of the most insane examples of trailer trash ever to slash and burn their way through a Grindhouse cinema projector.

MARVEL at the fact that most of the actual films themselves could never live up to the jaw dropping lunacy of these incredible trailers, some of which can today be considered true masterpieces in advertising and marketing. With their often hilarious voice-overs and mind-bending taglines, plus all the best bits from the movies themselves, they add up to one thing - sheer entertainment! BE AMAZED that Contemporary Directors such as Quentin Tarantino (GRINDHOUSE), Eli Roth (HOSTEL) and Rob Zombie (THE DEVIL'S REJECTS) have all since revisited these movies and have made their own supercharged movies relying heavily on the essence of many of these seventies Grindhouse cinema classics. Tarantino in particular has drawn a huge amount of his inspiration from these movies and trailers in many of his films, so we've included some of his favorites here - see if you can spot them!

THRILL to the fact that many of the then unknown actors and filmmakers from these choice cuts went on to much bigger and better things, so it's no surprise that these fantastic flicks have since achieved cult status, making GRINDHOUSE TRAILER CLASSICS a must-own DVD that's ideal for parties in your very own private Grindhouse...

In the 1970s, his legendary films EL TOPO and THE HOLY MOUNTAIN redefined movies as both art and entertainment while changing the face of cinema forever.

It is an odyssey of ecstasy and anguish, belief and blasphemy, beauty and madness. It is unlike any movie you have ever seen before...or ever will. Axel Jodorowsky, Blanca Guerra and Guy Stockwell star in this epic of surreal genius. One of the most provocative and unforgettable motion picture experience of our time is now fully restored.

In 1945 Italy, Livia (Anna Galiena), the bored wife of an Italian official, recalls the taboo affair she has been having with a much younger Nazi lieutenant (Gabriel Garko). The elation of her middle-aged sexual awakening is soon diminished when she discovers that her lover's intentions are far from honest. Ashamed and betrayed, she must make the difficult decision to resolve her devastating erotic entanglement.

Tinto Brass reminds us why he is a master of his art. The lush and sentimental Ennio Morricone score beautifully complements the striking cinematography that contrasts the bliss of a woman's rediscovery with a society ravaged by war. This is Camillo Boito's 1882 novella Senso as only maestro-of-erotica Tinto Brass could tell it.

In a strange, secluded house in Rome, the two women create a bizarre private world where Silvia's fantasies become real, as Margaret turns her into a slave, a plaything of flesh, subject to the whims of an all powerful owner who can use her in any way she desires. Pasquale Festa Campanile (Hitch-Hike) directs a masterpiece of decadence, packed with sumptuous and shocking images. A brand new HD transfer from the original Techniscope negative.

Get ready for the rarely seen slasher classic from the 80s that may also be the most disturbing "killer kids" movies in grindhouse history: Three babies are simultaneously born in the same hospital at the peak of a full solar eclipse. Ten years later, these adorable youngsters suddenly begin a kiddie killing spree of stranglings, shootings, stabbings, beatings and beyond. Can the town's grown-ups stop these pint-sized serial killers before their blood-soaked birthday bash? K.C. Martel (E.T., Growing Pains), Joe Penny (Jake And The Fat Man), Michael Dudikoff (American Ninja), screen legends Susan Strasberg and José Ferrer, and MTV vixen Julie Brown ,whose nude bedroom dance remains a landmark of celebrity skin, star in this still-controversial shocker from director Ed Hunt (The Brain, Diary Of A Sinner), featuring an HD transfer from the original vault elements.

An A-list director. A jaw-dropping storyline. And depraved depictions of suburban violence, 70s fashions and "sick love". The result remains one of the most disturbing movies in Hollywood history: Anjanette Comer (The Loved One) stars as an idealistic L.A. County social worker who investigates the case of Mrs. Wadsworth (former 50s starlet Ruth Roman of Strangers On A Train fame), her two buxom daughters, and son "Baby", a mentally-disabled man who sleeps in a crib, eats in a high-chair, crawls, bawls and wears diapers. But what secrets of unnatural attachment - and sexual obsession - are all of these women hiding? Marianna Hill (The Godfather Part II) and Michael Pataki (Grave Of The Vampire) co-star in this psychotic stunner from director Ted Post (Magnum Force, Beneath The Planet Of The Apes), restored from the original film negative for the first time ever on Blu-Ray.

As the "body-count" genre stabbed its way into audiences' hearts in the early '80s, EuroTrash auteur Jess Franco (Sadomania, Mansion Of The Living Dead) was asked to create his own saga of slaughtered schoolgirls complete with gratuitous nudity, graphic violence, and gory set pieces. But just when you thought you'd seen it all, Franco shocked the world by delivering surprising style, genuine suspense and a cavalcade of depravity that includes incest, voyeurism and roller disco. The luscious Olivia Pascal of Vanessa fame stars in this twisted thriller that was banned in England yet is now presented uncut and uncensored - including the complete "stone mill power saw" sequence- for the first time ever on Blu-ray!

Their place in history is undeniable. Hardcore 8mm stag films introduced explicit human sexuality to the public. Predating every other moving picture home format, these inauspicious productions provided not only a window to a whole other world, but also immediate relief for those not fortunate enough to make their fantasies into reality. Thousands of these underground movies were made between the 1960s and 1980s, and sold in the back of sex magazines or distributed to the almost 60,000 private peep show booths located in adult stores in most major cities.

Impulse Pictures is proud to present 42ND STREET FOREVER - THE PEEP SHOW COLLECTION VOL. 3, a new, continuing series of salacious 8mm shorts, re-mastered from original film prints. This collection features fifteen classic loops with titles like Don't Splash, Grateful Boobs, Army Bitches, Love Machines, The Barbarian Girls and more. Watch for adult film stars Annie Sprinkle, Susan Nero, Bobby Astyr, and Jamie Gillis in these nasty nudies!

Film Fanaddict News : Kino Lorber and Redemption to Release Pete Walker's Home Before Midnight and House of Mortal Sin on Blu-ray
Posted by David Carter on 2014/5/26 16:40:28 (223 reads)

Open in new windowKino Lorber and Redemption are pleased to announce the release of two more cult classics from British exploitation filmmaker Pete Walker: HOME BEFORE MIDNIGHT, a serious look into an illicit affair between a songwriter and an underage fan, and HOUSE OF MORTAL SIN, about a corrupt priest who uses his power for his own sinister gain.

Continuing their tradition of releasing the best in European horror and cult classics in new HD transfers, with informative special features, Kino Lorber and Redemption bring HOME BEFORE MIDNIGHT and HOUSE OF MORTAL SIN to Blu-ray on June 17th, individually priced at $24.95 each. Both Blu-rays come packed with bonus features that will offer something new for long-time fans of these films, including interviews with Pete Walker by horror film expert Elijah Drenner and, on HOUSE OF MORTAL SIN, an audio commentary with director Pete Walker and Jonathan Rigby, author of English Gothic.

These two films from this master of British horror and exploitation join Kino Lorber and Redemption's other releases of Pete Walker films on Blu-ray, including DIE SCREAMING, MARIANNE, HOUSE OF WHIPCORD, SCHIZO, THE COMEBACK, and - most recently - FRIGHTMARE and THE FLESH AND BLOOD SHOW.

HOME BEFORE MIDNIGHT

UPC: 738329131524

With his penultimate film as director, Pete Walker moved away from the flesh-and-blood exploitation that made him one of Britain's most notorious filmmakers, and created this serious (but no less sensational) examination of sexual prejudices. When hit songwriter Mike Beresford (James Aubrey) rescues a stranded hitch-hiker named Ginny (Alison Elliot), a steamy romance transpires. But passion turns to prosecution when Ginny's parents reveal that she is only fourteen. True to form, Walker questions the "justice" of a legal system that plots to destroy Mike's livelihood, and morally implicates the viewer by encouraging us to share in Mike's fondness for Ginny, even after we learn she is underaged. Along the way, Walker provides an entertaining (if not entirely accurate) portrait of the '70s rock scene, featuring Stones sibling Chris Jagger.

"Walker's trademark amoral approach... elicits a strong urge to take a hot bath after viewing." - The New York Times

During the 1970s, the Catholic horror film enjoyed its heyday, with The Exorcist, The Omen, and House of Exorcism. Pete Walker's HOUSE OF MORTAL SIN is the only one to seriously address the hypocrisies of the church, without deviating from its grisly, slasher-movie form. As Walker told The Guardian, "I made that film because I went to a Catholic school where hellfire and damnation were rammed down my throat." That resentment shines through in his story of a corrupt priest (Anthony Sharp) who uses the institution of the church to commit heinous crimes: tape recording confessions for the purpose of blackmail, and serving communion with a poisoned wafer. Norman Eshley stars as a modern, liberated priest who defies the sinister Father Meldrum, but are his honesty and integrity any match for the elder priest's reign of holy terror?

At the time when pornography became semi-legal in the US, the Europeans produced a different kind of adult cinema, shot in public; on the Beach, at a Nudist Colony, on the Train, at a Swimming Pool, in a Café or a Night Club, featuring common people, in real situations, in hardcore style. The films were made for home use and in clubs, in longer format than previously done, varying from 15 to 30 minutes, shot with script - with or without original recorded sound, whereby the sex was free and wheeling.

Film Fanaddict News : Kino Lorber Releases Alain Robbe-Grillet's The Man Who Lies and Eden & After on Blu-ray
Posted by David Carter on 2014/5/11 16:51:28 (236 reads)

Open in new windowKino Lorber is proud to announce the Blu-ray releases of three more films from acclaimed French novelist, filmmaker, and Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter Alain Robbe-Grillet: The Man Who Lies, starring Jean-Louis Trintignant (Z, Amour), who won the Silver Bear for Best Actor for his performance, and Eden & After, along with the complete alternate version of the film, N. Took the Dice.

These three films join Kino Lorber's previous releases of Trans-Europ-Express, Successive Slidings of Pleasure, and L'Immortelle in The Cinema of Alain Robbe-Grillet, a collection of six films from this influential writer-director whose work weaves his personal themes of sadomasochism within an intricate web of experimental storytelling. Robbe-Grillet's unique and distinctive narrative approach earned him an Academy Award® nomination for Best Screenplay for Alain Resnais' Last Year at Marienbad in 1962, and these releases from Kino Lorber display his mastery of both writing and directing.

Both Blu-rays will be released on May 27th, individually priced at $34.95 each, mastered in HD from original 35mm elements and featuring an interview with Robbe-Grillet as well as trailers for his other films.

THE MAN WHO LIES (L'homme qui ment)
Blu-ray Street Date: May 27, 2014
Blu-ray SRP: $34.95

On the run from pursuing soldiers, Boris (Jean-Louis Trintignant) finds a refuge in a small European town which, years before, was home to Jean, a resistance fighter hunted by the Nazis. Boris ingratiates himself in the community, weaving elaborate tales of his encounters with the martyred rebel, and thereby seducing Jean's widow...and sister...and maid. But Boris' erotic games are interrupted when a mysterious stranger -- who may, in fact, be Jean -- arrives in the village.

From the darkly erotic imagination of Alain Robbe-Grillet (Trans-Europ-Express) comes EDEN AND AFTER, a dreamlike fable in which a group of decadent French students are drawn into the psychological and sexual games of a mysterious Dutchman (Pierre Zimmer). Once they imbibe his "fear powder", the students experience a series of hallucinatory episodes: ruminations on death, explorations of sexual curiosity, and striking tableaux of sado-masochistic fantasy. This special edition includes an interview with writer/director Robbe-Grillet, and a complete alternate cut of the film, entitled N. TOOK THE DICE.

BLOODSUCKING FREAKS has earned a world-wide reputation as being a film unlike anything ever seen before in the history of the cinema. It has been held over in certain theatres across the U.S. for over a full year! BLOODSUCKING FREAKS takes you to a bizarre Off-Broardway theatre of the macabre, operated by a deranged impresario. Inside, sadistic entertainments are staged for his audience's pleasure, including tortures, dismemberments, and other gruesome acts which appear to be faked. When people begin disappearing off the streets of Manhattan, the twisted truth begins to chillingly sink in: these horrifying bloodcurdling acts are not theatrical at all. They are real! You'll be GROSSED OUT by the unique melange of humor and horror as the impresario's horde of beautiful teenage girls, who are kept in cages and perform on command, take over the show and devise a nasty game of their own! You'll SCREAM YOUR HEAD OFF as the fun climaxes in one of the most unforgettable scenes in movie history!
