His name is Lloyd Kaufman and Anchor Bay’s got him! Anchor Bay Films proudly announces the return of Lloyd Kaufman to the theatrical feature director’s chair with the March 18th Blu-ray™ and DVD release of Return To Nuke ‘Em High, Vol. 1.

The cast includes Catherine Corcoran (The Lovely Bones), Asta Paredes (Occupy Cannes!), Debbie Rochon (Tromeo and Juliet), Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister and introducing Kevin the Wonder Duck! Fresh from exclusive theatrical engagements in New York, Los Angeles and other major markets, and still playing in exclusive theatrical engagements all over the world (while receiving excellent mainstream reviews http://return2nukeemhigh.com/press), Return to Nuke ‘Em High, Vol. 1 – presented in all its director-approved, unrated glory -- graduates with an SRP of $24.99 for the Blu-ray™ and $19.98 for the DVD.

Welcome to Tromaville High School. Your typical high school populated with your basic football jocks, wannabe prom queens and glee club hopefuls.

Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent lovers/bloggers, must not only fight the adolescent beasts and freaks, they must also defeat the evil Conglomerate.

If that isn’t enough, how about death by glee club, high falls, meltdowns and fiery explosions? Wait there’s more! There’s plenty of exposed teen viscera (and breasts!) and love triumphing over prejudice. Just like The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and “Glee” – only 100% Troma style!

Film Fanaddict News : Kino Lorber and Redemption Release Alain Robbe-Grillet's Trans-Europ-Express and Successive Slidings of Pleasure on Blu-ray and DVD on Feb. 11
Posted by David Carter on 2014/1/15 22:21:43 (1007 reads)

Open in new windowKino Lorber and Redemption are proud to announce the Blu-ray and DVD releases of TRANS-EUROP-EXPRESS and SUCCESSIVE SLIDINGS OF PLEASURE, directed by Alain Robbe-Grillet. These two films are part of The Cinema of Alain Robbe-Grillet, which will consist of individual releases of films directed by the acclaimed French writer, essayist, and filmmaker. Kino Lorber and Redemption plan to release additional Robbe-Grillet films, including L'immortelle, The Man Who Lies, and Eden and After (and the alternate cut, N. Throws the Dice), later in 2014.

The first two films in the collection that will be released are TRANS-EUROP-EXPRESS (1967) and SUCCESSIVE SLIDINGS OF PLEASURE (1974), which will become available on Blu-ray and DVD on February 11th with individual SRPs of $34.95 for the Blu-ray editions, and $29.95 for the DVD editions. The films are mastered in HD from original 35mm elements and include interviews with Robbe-Grillet.

Decades ahead of his time, Alain Robbe-Grillet (1922-2008) remains one of the most important figures in Modern literature, and is best known for his innovative work in the Nouveau Roman style with novels such as Le Voyeur and La Jalousie. His screenplay for Alain Resnais' Last Year at Marienbad (1962) earned him an Academy Award® nomination for Best Writing (Original Screenplay).

Perhaps no other filmmaker has used the medium as an expression and exploration of his dark sexual desires, evidenced by erotic and sometimes disturbing motifs that recur with regularity throughout his body of work: blindfolds, bondage, strangulation, stabbing. Through his highly stylized and confident direction, Robbe-Grillet elevates these tableaux to a level of high art, yet never denying their place in the realm of 1960s exploitation cinema.

For years, Robbe Grillet's films have been unavailable in the United States in any form. It is with great pride that Kino Lorber and Redemption Films bring these films to American viewers, in exquisite HD editions, aiding in the rediscovery of one of European cinema's most eclectic and highly original filmmakers.


TRANS-EUROP-EXPRESS

A "parody of the old New Wave crime eroticism movies" (The New York Times), TRANS-EUROP-EXPRESS is a self-referential, neo-noir thriller, with heavy doses of sado-masochism, from the mind of Alain Robbe-Grillet (Last Year at Marienbad).

On the train from Paris to Antwerp, a director (Robbe-Grillet) and his production team hash out the plot of a crime movie. Their story is enacted by Jean Louis-Trintignant (Amour), who plays Elias, a cocaine smuggler seduced by Eva (Marie-France Pisier, Celine and Julie Go Boating), who may be working for a rival gang. But as the director keeps changing the story, Elias becomes lost in a labyrinth of false leads and shifting allegiances.

SUCCESSIVE SLIDINGS OF PLEASURE
(Glissements progressifs du plaisir)

A cult erotic drama from the perverse imagination of Alain Robbe-Grillet (Last Year at Marienbad, Trans-Europ-Express), SUCCESSIVE SLIDINGS OF PLEASURE delves into the twisted mind of a young woman (Anicée Alvina) suspected in the stabbing death of her roommate Nora (Olga Georges-Picot, Love and Death).

Imprisoned in a convent, the girl's seductive wiles hypnotize the cops and clerics that surround her. All submit to her sexual whims, and are drawn into a sado-masochistic world where fantasy and reality are pleasurably blurred. This devilishly entertaining trip into deviance is made even more alluring by the special appearances of Jean-Louis Trintigant (Amour), Michael Lonsdale (Moonraker) and Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher).

Film Fanaddict News : CULT EPICS NEW RELEASE ANNOUNCEMENT
Posted by David Carter on 2014/1/12 21:08:39 (1116 reads)

Open in new windowIn 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. A return to grandeur, the most expensive film Brass directed since CALIGULA. Cult Epics is proud to present this contemporary classic erotic drama on DVD for the first time in the U.S. with many Bonus Features including a Behind-the-Scenes Featurette and Complete Soundtrack option.



Also available THE TINTO BRASS COLLECTION VOL. IV: presenting Tinto Brass' most enjoyable erotic masterpieces, filled with eye-catching erotica in which Tinto continues to push the envelope. The Voyeur is Tinto's magnum opus and one of his most celebrated erotic films. Monamour welcomes him back to the style he is famous for, erotic comedy. And Black Angel, a grand masterpiece about fascism, Venice, women and desire.

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. 1, a new, continuing series of salacious 8mm shorts, re-mastered from original film prints. This collection features fifteen classic loops with titles like Deeper Throat, One Hung Low, Nurse's Aid, Wet and Wild, Spice of Life and more.

In this twelfth volume of the German exploitation classic series, the filmmakers explore erotic stories written to the editors of a high school newspaper. As the students read the letters aloud, the sexual vignettes play out onscreen. You'll be floored by the amazing (and eye-poppingly inappropriate, even for a SCHOOLGIRL REPORT film) story of the young Anne, a student secretly wishing to enter the mile-high club with her own brother, an older airplane pilot. During a class trip, Barbara and her young boyfriend sneak away from the Forester's Lodge for some secret forest sex, not realizing that the ENTIRE class has exactly the same idea. The lovely Gaby is mistakenly sent to a doctor on the wrong day, and ends up with a pervy plumber wanting to check her precious pipes! Then there's the tragic tale of beautiful Etta, a nymphomaniac from a troubled home who sinks into prostitution and drugs from her enabling boyfriend. And, in the final story, a family mistakenly brings a male exchange student into their home, only to have their daughter fall head-over-heels in love with him.

Director: Walt Davis
Stars: Cleo OĂ­Hara, Rick Cassidy, John Holmes, Sandy Dempsey, Susan Westcott

Few sexploitation filmmakers were as bold, daring and bizarre as Walt Davis, the enigmatic auteur behind some of the wildest X rated films to come out of Hollywood.

In EVIL COME, EVIL GO (1972), traveling Evangelist preacher, Sister Sarah Jane (Cleo O'Hara), is hellbent on ridding the world of evil, sex-obsessed men. Taking to the streets of Los Angeles, she quickly befriends a gullible young woman and the two embark on a mad, sex-filled killing spree.

Cleo O'Hara returns in OH! YOU BEAUTIFUL DOLL (1974), an almost surreal blend of madcap improvisation and low-rent thrills as over-the-hill film starlet Gaye Ramon lounges around her cluttered Hollywood home, molesting bananas and conning innocent men into taking her carnal acting courses. Meanwhile, a con-artist photographer manipulates beautiful hippies into revealing poses.

Finally, in one of Davis' hardcore efforts, WIDOW BLUE (1970), a homosexual affair results in a gory decapitation and a living room orgy. But more bloodshed is afoot...Featuring an all-star cast, among them John Holmes and Sandy Dempsey, as well as gore effects straight out of H.G. Lewis' playbook, WIDOW BLUE is a demented masterpiece of sex and death, which is coming to home video fully uncut for the very first time!

Vinegar Syndrome presents all three of these mind-numbing X rated classics newly transferred and restored in 2K from their original negatives.

Bonus Features: Video interview with Producer Bob Chinn, Theatrical trailers for EVIL and DOLL, Outtake footage from WIDOW.

Production year: 2008
Directors: Michael Masters and David J. Francis
Stars: Michael Masters, David J. Francis, Stephen Papadimitriou, Sam Hall
Genre: Horror

Independent underground filmmakers Mike Masters and David J. Francis (playing themselves) are eager to complete the third film in their ZOMBIE NIGHT film trilogy, a series of rather unsuccessful low-budget, shot-on-video gorefests. The problem, however, is a recent zombie apocalypse has taken over the world since their series began. The dead are rising from their graves and eating the living - for real this time! Masters and Francis embark on the production of their newest masterpiece anyway, only to discover shooting in a post-apocalyptic world offers many unforeseen challenges. Instead of giving up, they decide to capitalize on the cannibalistic catastrophe. No need for latex and fake blood when there's an entire world of flesh eating undead to add realism to their film, and help save money on special effects costs!

Touching upon the real-life headaches of low-budget filmmaking, with numerous nods to the zombie film genre, REEL ZOMBIES is a satirical mockumentary feature that dives head-first into self-parody and an improbable but inspiring lesson in filmcraft proving that passion and dedication can overcome all obstacle - even the ones that want to chomp your brain out! (Simon Laperriere, Fantasia Film Festival)

Film Fanaddict News : Raro Video Will Release Nightmare City on Blu-ray and DVD on Dec. 31st
Posted by David Carter on 2013/12/3 21:39:13 (944 reads)

Open in new windowRaro Video is proud to announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of Umberto Lenzi's zombie horror film Nightmare City in a new HD transfer from the original 35mm negative and packed with special features.

Nightmare City comes to Blu-ray and DVD with a street date of December 31st and a prebook date of December 3rd. The Blu-ray SRP is $34.95, and the DVD SRP is $29.95.

Umberto Lenzi's zombie shocker Nightmare City stars actor Hugo Stiglitz as a reporter caught in a living, breathing zombie hell. When an airplane comes into contact with radiation from a nuclear disaster it causes the passengers to mutate into scabby-faced humanoids with a compulsion to kill and drink the blood of their victims. As the zombies move into the city and beyond, will anyone or anything be able to stop the wave of bloody death and disease that threatens to decimate mankind?

Filled with nonstop violence, gory special effects and pulse-pounding music and featuring supporting performances by Laura Trotter, Francisco Rabal and Mel Ferrer, RARO is proud to present this oddball gem of Italian splatter completely remastered and uncut.

Film Fanaddict News : Kino Classics Releases Mario Bava's The Whip and the Body on Blu-ray and DVD on Dec. 17th
Posted by David Carter on 2013/11/24 12:53:41 (966 reads)

Open in new windowKino Classics is proud to announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of Mario Bava's THE WHIP AND THE BODY, starring iconic horror film star Christopher Lee, and mastered in HD from an original 35mm print.

Set to street on December 17th, the Blu-ray and DVD editions present the film with choice of audio in Italian with optional English subtitles, English dubbed, and French with optional English subtitles; audio commentary by Tim Lucas, author of Mario Bava: All the Colors of the Dark; the theatrical trailer; and original trailers of other Bava films. The SRP for the Blu-ray is $24.95; the SRP for the DVD is $19.95.

Steeped in sadomasochism and lushly photographed in the vivid hues for which the director is known, Mario Bava's THE WHIP AND THE BODY is a Gothic thriller that far surpasses the AIP Edgar Allan Poe films that it was intended to emulate. Christopher Lee (Dracula: Prince of Darkness) stars as Kurt Menliff, the sadistic son of a wealthy Count, who returns to the family castle, much to the dismay of his family, their servants, and the beautiful woman with whom he shares a fondness for the lash (Daliah Lavi). When Kurt is found murdered, it brings no peace to those who had feared him, as his vengeful spirit cannot be contained by the grave, and he returns to torment those unfortunate enough to remain within Menliff Manor.

Genre: Comedy Production years: 1964 / 1967
Directors: Russ Meyer / Albert Zugsmith
Stars: Troy Donahue, Ulli Lomell, Miriam Hopkins, Sabrina, Laticia Roman

Acclaimed producer Albert Zugsmith (TOUCH OF EVIL, THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING
MAN) crafted some of the strangest and most unlikely exploitation films of
the 60s. Vinegar Syndrome presents the blu-ray debut of two of his rarest
works:

Cult filmmaker Russ Meyer takes on directorial duties in Zugsmith's
adaptation of the notorious erotic classic Fanny Hill. Set in pre-Victorian
London, young Fanny finds herself taken in by a madame at one of the city's
most elite brothels. A strange mix of Zugsmith's surreal slapstick and
Meyer's trademark buxom beauties and thoughtful satire, FANNY HILL is an
over-the-top saga of low-rent thrills in high-brow settings.

Zugsmith's mind-numbing blend of surrealism and slapstick comedy done as a
self-aware parody of westerns stars Troy Donohue as Phil P. Phillips, fresh
out of divinity school and living in the frontier town of Yucca Flats. When
a gang of seven criminals take the town hostage, itĂ­s up to Phil to save
the village, or die trying, again and again...

Both films have been restored from their original negatives and are being
offered on Blu-ray & DVD fully uncut for the first time!

Bonus Features: Interview with star Ulli Lomell, interview with film
historian Eric Schaefer and reversible coverart.

Film Fanaddict News : Hindsight: True Love & Mischief in the Golden Age of Porn
Posted by David Carter on 2013/11/11 17:52:42 (1198 reads)

Open in new windowBearManor Media proudly announces the forthcoming release of Hindsight: True Love & Mischief in the Golden Age of Porn by Howie Gordon a.k.a. Richard Pacheco.

HINDSIGHT is one man's remarkably revealing story about sex and relationships, on the silver screen and in his private life. Howie Gordon (screen name Richard Pacheco) was an award-winning actor during The Golden Age of Porn, whose memoir does not duck the question, “What about love?”

With charm, passion, wit, and what may best be described as a crude elegance, Gordon's story takes us back to the fabled Baby Boomer era, when erotic films took a dramatic step closer to mainstream entertainment in America.

His memoir recounts scenes with Marilyn Chambers, Georgina Spelvin, Seka, Annette Haven, Kay Parker and many others. This was the heyday of John Holmes, John Leslie, Jamie Gillis and Anthony Spinelli, and they are all characters in what may prove to be the finest inside story to ever come out of the fascinating world of Adult Films during its Golden Age.

Ultimately, HINDSIGHT is a surprising love story: here in a triumph over incredible odds, is an unlikely victory for true love, common sense, and the American way. Full of pictures and high spirits – this memoir is a great read, whether you know the world of porn, or are just a curious reader.

"It was the time of storytelling with an X Rating, and there’s no one better to tell this story than my friend Howie Gordon."
- Whoopi Goldberg

“Howie Gordon writes about life as a porn star with more honesty, integrity and humor than any
other porn star, ever! You will laugh, cry, and fall in love. I hope his book gets made into a movie,
because it will be a one-of-a-kind blockbuster.”
- Annie Sprinkle, Ph.D.
Post Porn Modernist

“Mark Twain meets Don Juan—a delectable fusion of brains and balls!”

Ooo la, la it's OUI, GIRLS!

The star of Wes Craven's classic THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT directs this adult film masterpiece, coming soon from Impulse Pictures! When Barbara (the sexy Anna Ventura) is asked to go undercover to assist Nick (adult film superstar Paul Thomas) in a murder investigation, she gets more than she bargained for! Together they embark on a perverse trail of lies and deceit to the secretive "Circle S" singles ranch. Sleeping their way through the various patrons to get information, they discover the truth behind the mystery. Directed by Fred J.

It's teacher time! The girls are back in town! SCHOOLGIRL REPORT VOLUME #11

A German radio program is recorded with experts discussing what can be done to protect the kids of today. As the participants recount stories of sexual promiscuity, we watch the stories play out on screen. Martina is a young, innocent girl whose life turns tragic when her sex partner betrays her during their numerous sexual study sessions. Regine claims she was sexually assaulted by her assigned school tutor, but he tells a very different jaw-dropping story about what “went down” after school! A foursome in a barn gets nutty for the lovely Gila and her friends, when the orgy turns into something even more dirty and messy at the climax of their sex party. Michaela leaves a suicide note for one of her school instructors and, when he saves her from certain death, her terrifying story of being kidnapped and turned into a sex slave is revealed. And, in the final story, a group of girls turn Heidi's 18th birthday into something special when their gift is to lock her in a bedroom with a sexy schoolmate to help her lose her virginity.
