Teenager Simone appears to be like any other young pop fan. But soon her fixation on the band's lead singer R takes over her life. Simone walks out of school, breaks off with her friends and parents and somehow finds herself waiting for her idol as he appears on a TV show. When she sees him in the flesh she is speechless, unable even to ask for his autograph. He reaches out to touch her. Overcome with emotion, Simone faints; with that first touch, R's fate is sealed.

Simone discovers the carefully styled world of which R is just another product. Simone wants nothing more than to love and be loved by R, but he takes her with machine-like coldness. She experiences their intimacy as a kind of slow motion nightmare, an encounter with a robotic creature, totally incapable of affection or emotion. Simone cannot accept the detachment of her idol, and when R walks out on her to join his friends, she plots her revenge. Simone plans the ultimate sacrifice of her god on the altar of her madness, a ceremony as exalted and romantic as it is horribly wonderful. The police search for R. But only Simone knows where he is, and she will give birth to him anew....

Stars: Various

Prepare to be corrupted and depraved once more by the sequel to the definitive guide to the Video Nasties phenomenon - the most extraordinary and scandalous era in the history of British film. For the first time ever on DVD, all 82 films that fell foul of the Director of Public Prosecutions "Section 3" list are trailer-featured with specially filmed intros for each title, alongside director Jake West's brand new documentary -- VIDEO NASTIES: DRACONIAN DAYS.

DISC 1: Video Nasties: Draconian Days

The critically acclaimed follow-up documentary to VIDEO NASTIES: MORAL PANIC, CENSORSHIP AND VIDEOTAPE from director Jake West and producer Marc Morris who continue to uncover the shocking story of home entertainment following the introduction of the 1984 Video Recordings Act. The UK was plunged into a new Dark Age of the most restrictive censorship, where the horror movie became the bloody eviscerated victim of continuing dread created by self-aggrandizing moral guardians, and the film charts the consequences of this, including subversive social culture that sprung up around it. With fascinating interviews and more jaw dropping archive footage, get ready to reflect and rejoice on the passing of a turbulent time.

DISC 2/3: The Section 3 List

Original trailers for all 82 titles that were designated under "Section 3" of the Obscene Publications Act by the Director of Public Prosecutions. These titles were liable for seizure and forfeiture by the police, removed from sale or hire and then destroyed; although they were not ultimately prosecuted. This amazing list was discovered whilst researching legal paperwork for the original VIDEO NASTIES: THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE and finally clears up why so many additional titles were historically considered to be "Video Nasties". Titles include: Blood Lust, Brutes and Savages, Cannibals, Dead Kids, Deep Red, Death Weekend, Demented, Eaten Alive, Headless Eyes, Hell Prison, Love Butcher, Mark of the Devil, Massacre Mansion, Savage Terror, Scream for Vengeance, Suicide Cult, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Xtro and Zombie Holocaust.

Genre: Erotica Production year: 1980 Not Rated Region 0
Director: Walter Boos
Cast: Katja Bienert, Sylvia Engelmann, Renate Langer

In this final entry in the German sexploitation "Schoolgirl Report" series, we find a high school theatre troop rehearsing the balcony scene from Shakespeare's classic, "Romeo & Juliet." During discussions about the classic story, the director and his students contemplate both love and sex, in five steamy vignettes. This film is notable for starring the stunning Katja Bienert, an actress famous for acting in many Jesus Franco films.

In the first sexy short, a young girl is blackmailed into stripping for a perverted shop owner. When he ends up dead, the police unravel the shocking truth. Story two brings us to a school playground where a group of boys make a bet that one of them can bed a beautiful teen. The girl finds out about the bet and plans sweet revenge! The third story tells the shocking story of a high school girl's battle with alcoholism, and a family friend that becomes abusive. In story four, a group of teens decide to have sex for the first time and, in their quest for condoms, hilarity ensues! And, in the final story, a young man is troubled by the love of two women. When they find out about his deceptive game, they'll all need to learn the meaning of "true love."

Toru, a down and out tabloid reporter is looking for his next "big" story. In order to get paid decent money in the supermarket rag business, you need to find controversy! The elusive "Momoe" is forbidden fruit, so he sets his sights on Miki Yoko, an up and coming young singing sensation. She's young and beautiful and Toru thinks her record company is pumping her full of drugs. He will do anything to get a story, even assaulting her and tailing her everywhere she goes. One night, she is kidnapped right in front of him and, with his reporter instincts at work, Toru's life spirals into a torrid world of sex, drugs, and corruption in the entertainment business. In his quest for a huge story, will he come out unscathed?

MOMOE'S LIPS is a violent, perverse film that is just as relevant today as it was 35 years ago upon release. In our 21st century world of paparazzi tailing entertainers for pictures and stories for the nightly news, this film tackled similar themes many decades ago' with much more skin, sex and violence on display for the audience!

You may think you've witnessed the most extreme examples of the Italian cannibal genre, but leave it to late Italian sleaze master Bruno Mattei ( notorious director of HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD, RATS: NIGHT OF TERROR, SS GIRLS and CALIGULA'S PERVERSIONS ) to lower the bar to depraved new heights. In this shameless rip-off of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, Mattei (under the name "Vincent Dawn") unleashes the sleazy saga of a ratings-hungry American TV crew whose Amazon jungle report becomes a nightmare of gut munching, brain-scarfing, sexual atrocities, insane moralizing and much more. Claudio Morales and Cindy Matic (IN THE LAND OF THE CANNIBALS) star in this jaw-dropper ( also known as CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST: THE BEGINNING ) now presented uncut and uncensored for the first time ever in America!

DEVIL HUNTER: Ursula Buchfellner, Al Cliver, Antonio Mayans

PAPAYA: LOVE GODDESS OF THE CANNIBALS: Her name was Sirpa Lane, the succulent Finnish beauty who became an international sex symbol in Roger Vadim's Charlotte, then shocked the world with her inhuman degradation in Walerian Borowczyk's The Beast. But perhaps her ultimate cinematic destiny was to star in this tropical sleaze-fest from the notorious Joe D'Amato ( director of Emanuelle And The White Slave Trade and Anthropophagus ) as a woman who hungrily surrenders to perverse trysts, native vengeance, graphic carnal carnage and beyond. Severin Films is shamelessly proud to present Papaya fully restored ( including the complete Disco Cannibal Blood Orgy sequence ) from an Italian vault print seized from the private collection of a jailed magistrate!

CANNIBAL TERROR: Even by the sleaziest standards of '80s EuroTrash, it remains a film that must be seen to be believed: When a pair of criminal knuckleheads and their busty moll kidnap the young daughter of a wealthy tycoon, they foolishly choose to hide in a local jungle infested with ferocious cannibals. What follows is a mind-roasting exercise in atrocious acting, gratuitous nudity and gut-munching mayhem by a ravenous tribe of flesh eaters who inexplicably sport comb-overs and Elvis sideburns. Robert Foster (Inconfessable Orgies Of Emmanuelle), Pamela Stanford (White Cannibal Queen) and Burt Altman (The Devil Hunter) star in this infamous Spanish/French co-production that was banned in Britain as one of the original "Video Nasties" and is now presented uncut, uncensored and mastered in Hi-Def for the first time ever in America!

DEVIL HUNTER: King Of EuroSleaze Jess Franco (Bloody Moon, Macumba Sexual) takes on the '80s Cannibal genre and delivers a jungle sickie like no other! When a safari of sexy babes and violent boneheads ventures into native-crazed wilderness, Uncle Jess unleashes a deluge of relentless nudity, dubious anthropology and his own brand of cut-rate carnage. Ursula Fellner (Sadomania), Al Cliver (Zombie), Robert Foster (Cannibal Terror) and Gisela Hahn (Contamination) co-star in this original "Video Nasty" ( also tastefully known as Sexo Cannibal and Mandingo Manhunter ) with something to offend everyone, now fully restored from the original Spanish negative and presented uncut and uncensored for the first time ever in America!

Welcome to Warrior's Island, burial ground of disgraced martial arts masters!

Film Fanaddict News : Kino Lorber and Redemption Release The Last Step Down on DVD September 30th
Posted by David Carter on 2014/9/28 14:44:04 (267 reads)

Open in new windowKino Lorber and Redemption Films are pleased to announce the DVD release of THE LAST STEP DOWN, a thrilling, pulpy horror film directed by Lawrence Ramport that blends Satanism with the counter-culture attitude of the early '70s.

This double-feature set, which also includes Russell Gay's rarely seen Carmilla adaptation, BLOOD LUST (a stylish vampire sex film originally released exclusively to the 8mm market), arrives on DVD September 30th with a SRP of $29.95.

Synopsis:
The recent revival of interest in 1970's grindhouse cinema has unearthed some bizarre and seedy films, but none are as shamelessly exploitive as these two entries in the softcore horror genre. THE LAST STEP DOWN observes the initiation of several voluptuous young women into a satanic cult. With its zoned-out actors and lethargic plot, THE LAST STEP DOWN is a cynical reaction to the counter-cultural fascination with the occult in the early 70's, reducing the worship of the Prince of Darkness to a prolonged humping-and-groping session.

Also included is Russell Gay's ultra-rare BLOOD LUST, an especially salacious (and unexpectedly stylized) adaptation of Le Fanu's Carmilla.
