Production Year: 2002 Genre: Drama MPAA Rating: Not Rated

Stars: Anna Galiena

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. Cult Epics is proud to present this contemporary classic drama on Blu-ray for the first time in the U.S.

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.

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!

THE ONE THAT GOES ALL THE WAY! Banned and heavily censored the world over, here is a film that surpasses its reputation as a shot-gun blast to the senses. CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST presents the "found footage" of a group of four documentary filmmakers who experience brutal death at the hands of a savage South American tribe of flesh-eaters. This footage is so intense, so graphic and so unflinching in its realism that the director and producer of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST were arrested upon its original release and the film seized. Nothing you have seen before will prepare you for this uncompromising masterpiece of cinematic nihilism. Grindhouse Releasing proudly presents the definitive release of the most controversial movie ever made!

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 (145 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
Blu-ray Street Date: June 17, 2014
Blu-ray SRP: $24.95
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 (170 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.

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 backs 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. 2, a new, continuing series of salacious 8mm shorts, re-mastered from original film prints. This collection features fifteen classic "loops" with titles like "Shower with a Friend", "Purse Snatcher", "Tongue Sisters", "California Girl", "Lezzie Virgins" and more.

Every Video Nasty critiqued and explored, followed by the original trailers, for the first time ever on DVD in America! Prepare to be corrupted and depraved once more with this definitive guide to the Video Nasties phenomenon - one of the most extraordinary and scandalous eras in the history of British film. For the first time ever on DVD, TRAILERS to all 72 films that fell foul of the Director of Public Prosecutions are featured with specially filmed intros for each title in a lavish three-disc collector's edition box-set, alongside a brand new documentary - VIDEO NASTIES: MORAL PANIC, CENSORSHIP AND VIDEOTAPE.

Disc One, The era-defining and critically acclaimed documentary VIDEO NASTIES: MORAL PANIC, CENSORSHIP AND VIDEOTAPE directed by Jake (Doghouse) West and produced by Marc Morris features interviews with filmmakers Neil Marshall (The Descent, Doomsday), Christopher Smith (Severance, Black Death) and MP Graham Bright as well as rare archive footage featuring James Ferman (director of the BBFC 1975-1999) & Mary Whitehouse. Taking in the explosion of home video, the erosion of civil liberties, the introduction of draconian censorship measures, hysterical press campaigns and the birth of many careers born in blood and videotape, West's documentary also reflects on the influence this peculiar era still exerts on us today.

The DVD release of THE BLACK TORMENT (SRP: $19.95) includes a rare filmed interview with Robert Hartford-Davis (1968, 13 min.)

Jess Franco's THE DEMONS

"RIPE FOR REDISCOVERY! Uses witch-hunting as an excuse for sadistic sexual shenanigans." - Immoral Tales: European Sex and Horror Movies, 1956-1984

In the wake of the massive controversy surrounding Ken Russell's The Devils, several filmmakers rushed to create their own Inquisition horror films, inspired by the true story of satanic possession at the convent of Loudun. THE DEMONS (Les démons) is Jess Franco's stellar entry in the nunsploitation canon, with a degree of sadism and sexual explicitness that overshadows its competitors.

While being burned at the stake, an accused witch curses the principal witchfinder and his minions. As a result, members of royalty and the religious establishment are caused to suffer (or, some might say, enjoy) a series of human depravities. Franco photographs the scenes of torture, sex, and demon possession with a sense of tenderness that is both aesthetically pleasing and deeply unsettling.

Previously unreleased on video in the U.S., this Redemption edition represents the complete, uncensored version of the film.

Open in new windowTHE BLACK TORMENT
A Film by Robert Hartford-Davis

"The perfect film to watch on a gloomy night." - HorrorNews.net

An 18th-century gothic thriller, depicted with the vivid colors and overt eroticism borrowed from the Hammer horror films, THE BLACK TORMENT has emerged from obscurity to become recognized as "a minor classic... basically another retelling of Du Maurier's Rebecca except with blood, guts, and ghostly goings-on" (britishhorrorfilms.co.uk).

Returning to his country estate with his new bride, English nobleman Sir Richard Fordyce finds himself under suspicion from angry locals for the rape and brutal murder of a young girl. Despite Sir Richard's professed innocence, a growing hysteria unfolds, as strange and even supernatural events begin to occur around him.

With no one to turn to and his new wife threatening to shoot him, Sir Richard begins to question his own guilt... and sanity!
