Synopsis:

In 1995, visionary writer/director Richard Stanley (HARDWARE, DUST DEVIL) got the green light for his dream project: An epic adaptation of H.G. Wells' 'The Island Of Doctor Moreau' starring Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer. But only days into production, an unprecedented storm of natural disasters, monstrous egos and disturbing imagery - along with chaos, insanity and witchcraft - would trigger perhaps the most infamous behind-the-scenes catastrophe in modern movie history.

Now director/producer David Gregory (THE THEATRE BIZARRE, PLAGUE TOWN) reveals
the untold story behind one of the all-time greatest cinematic train wrecks (Variety) in this wonderfully weird and gripping (Entertainment Weekly) documentary featuring never-before-seen footage, startling new interviews with actors Fairuza Balk and Rob Morrow, studio executives, crew members and - for the first time ever - the notoriously reclusive Stanley himself, plus nearly 2 hours of exclusive Bonus Features.

Open in new windowKino Lorber announces the Blu-ray and DVD releases of two films by masters of European horror: Mario Bava's THE EVIL EYE (along with the alternate European cut, THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH), about a young woman who launches her own investigation of a murder only to learn that she might be next on the killer's list, and Jean Rollin's THE ESCAPEES, which follows two female mental patients who have escaped from a hospital and embark on a dreamlike journey across the French countryside.

THE EVIL EYE (the AIP American release version featuring a score by Ultra-lounge composer Les Baxter) and THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (the alternate European cut) street on May 19, with a SRP of $29.95 for the Blu-ray and $24.95 for the DVD. Special features include an audio commentary by Tim Lucas, author of Mario Bava: All the Colors of the Dark, and the original theatrical trailers.

THE ESCAPEES streets on May 26, with a SRP of $29.95 for the Blu-ray and $19.95 for the DVD. The disc includes "One Day in Paris: An Interview with Jean Rollin" (2008, 28 minutes) as a bonus feature.

Kino Lorber is proud to bring these films to Blu-ray and DVD in stunning new transfers, mastered in HD from the original 35mm negatives, that showcase the distinctive and powerful visual styles of genre masters Mario Bava and Jean Rollin.

Mario Bava's THE EVIL EYE/THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH
Blu-ray and DVD Street Date: May 19, 2015
Blu-ray SRP: $29.95

While vacationing in Italy, a young woman with a passion for crime fiction (Leticia Román) witnesses a brutal murder. With the help of a handsome young doctor (John Saxon), she launches her own investigation and uncovers a series of crimes known as the "Alphabet Murders", only to realize that she may be next on the killer's list.

This Kino Classics edition includes both the original Italian-language version (The Girl Who Knew Too Much) as well as the American cut (Evil Eye, featuring a score by Les Baxter and alternate footage). The last of Bava's features to be shot in black-and-white, Evil Eye is considered one of the earliest gialli, and opened the door for Bava to indulge in a more violent and provocative flavor of films.

Jean Rollin's The Escapees revisits the director's fascination with pairs of women who wander, dreamlike, through a modern dystopia (Requiem for a Vampire, Two Orphan Vampires). Two female patients -- one rebellious (Laurence Dubas), the other despondent (Christiane Coppé) -- flee the grounds of a mental hospital and drift across the French countryside. After finding refuge among a band of gypsy-like exotic dancers, they cross paths with a petty criminal (Marianne Valiot), an aging fortune-teller (Louise Dhour) and a quartet of swingers (including Brigitte Lahaie) with sinister intentions.

Punctuated by moments of unexpected violence and lyrical beauty (as when the emotionless Marie returns to life in a vacant ice rink), The Escapees is among Rollin's most personal films, and has been remastered in HD from the original 35mm negative.

Special Features:
"One Day in Paris: An Interview with Jean Rollin" (2008, 28 minutes)

Director: Various
Cast: Vanessa del Rio, Leslie Winston, Susan Nero, Jessie St. James

Synopsis:

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. 10, a new, continuing series of salacious 8mm shorts, re-mastered from original film prints.

This collection features fifteen classic loops with titles like Blond Bombshell, Private Nurse, Hot Lez Love, All Day Suckers, Anally Yours and more. Watch for adult film stars Vanessa Del Rio, Leslie Winston, Susan Nero and Jessie St. James in these raunchy rarities!

Synopsis:

At an unnamed ski resort, Ken Starbuck and Kara walk to their private cabin and complain that the filmmakers are only giving them $10 up front to do this film, as they introduce us to the steamiest sex scenes of the early eighties. Full of odd and hilarious overdubbing, this feature is a series of hot vignettes with your porn star favorites. Watch for Super Rod (they aren't kidding) and Lois Canal in a hilarious spoof of Superman that gets beeped whenever they mention the comic character names!

A man comes back from a trip to have sex with his girlfriend on a really ugly couch. In a fantasy scene, a “dirty old man” and another foxy lady get amorous while being overdubbed with hilarious French accents. In a scene from Sweet Cheeks, two lesbian lovers burn up the screen on a fuzzy rug in front of a cozy fireplace. In one of the oddest scenes in adult film history, we watch three folks get crazy while completely covered in grease (set to calliope music, of course). Seka get a montage of sexual antics with many, many of her best friends, and there's even a 3-way slow motion jam set to crazy classical music!

SNOW HONEYS is a hot, sexy adult film, featuring scenes with all your favorite adult film stars. Watch for Seka, Rhonda Jo Petty, Vanessa del Rio,
Kandi Barbour, Desiree Cousteau and Becky Savage!

Synopsis:

Off the sunny, sandy beaches of Florida, is a houseboat named Evil Ways captained by Andy W., a man seeking pleasure with one girl after another. Cheated on by his fiance, Andy sails the ocean in his floating lust-barge, bringing countless new women aboard to enjoy sex, pretzels, lunch meat and Schlitz beer. He is a sadist without a shirt, on mission to bang busty babes in every way possible.

This early 70s adult oddity is shrouded in mystery. It's a film that contains only a title card for identification. There are no opening or closing credits, and it is a very compact 64 minutes in length. Unconfirmed rumors state this is directed by the one and only Gerard Damiano, right before hitting the big time with the world-famous blockbuster adult feature, DEEP THROAT, arguably the most well-known adult film of all time.

Sex World is a luxury resort, advertised as the ultimate sex-themed getaway, where people travel to try and overcome their sexual problems. As the resort's guests slowly become aware of their inhibitions, fears, and repressed urges, with the help of robotic surrogate lovers, director Anthony Spinelli's camera paints a haunting picture of human insecurities set against a science fiction backdrop.

One of the biggest hits of the late 1970's SEX WORLD is a thoughtful analysis of eroticism, punctuated with striking and at times abstract visuals. Featuring an all-star cast, including Annette Haven, Leslie Bovee, Kay Parker, John Leslie, Joey Silvera, and with Hollywood level production values, SEX WORLD remains one of the most significant and thought provoking feature films ever produced.

Film Fanaddict News : Kino Lorber Releases The U.S. Release Version of Mario Bava's Black Sunday on Blu-ray
Posted by David Carter on 2015/2/8 10:18:28 (74404 reads)

Open in new windowKino Lorber is proud to announce the Blu-ray release of the U.S. release version of Mario Bava's cult classic BLACK SUNDAY, the groundbreaking and highly influential Italian horror film starring the great Barbara Steele as a witch condemned to death who unleashes a horrible curse upon the ancestors of those who killed her.

As a companion to the original Italian release version, which Kino Lorber previously released on Blu-ray, this U.S. release version of Mario Bava's film gives viewers the chance to see how this now-legendary genre classic was originally presented to U.S. audiences on its initial release here.

The U.S. release version of BLACK SUNDAY is set to street on Blu-ray on February 24, with a SRP of $19.95, mastered in HD from original 35mm elements and including Mario Bava theatrical trailers as bonus features.

This version of the film represents the changes made by American International Pictures, the studio that distributed the film in its initial U.S. release.

In addition to re-editing the film, AIP created a new English-dubbed track and introduced a new musical score by Les Baxter, today recognized as a master of Ultra-Lounge music, and who was instrumental in popularizing the Exotica sound.

Widely recognized as one of the true masters of the genre, for his distinctive visual style and his talent for atmospheric horror, Bava created a strong and enduring body of work that continues to entertain new audiences. Kino Lorber is proud to offer Bava's impressive directorial debut in an edition that does justice to the incredible visual power of his cinematic style.

SYNOPSIS:
In one of the most auspicious directorial debuts in movie history, Mario Bava bridged the gap between the gothic horror picture and the European art film with BLACK SUNDAY (aka La maschera del demonio or The Mask of Satan). Made in 1960 and now considered a cult classic, it continues to reverberate through the cinema inspiring and
influencing new generations of filmmakers.

In an absolutely mesmerizing performance, BLACK SUNDAY stars Barbara Steele as Asa Vajda, a beautiful woman tortured and executed as a witch -- but not before pronouncing a curse upon those who have condemned her, a curse that is fulfilled 200 years later.

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....

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.

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!
