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. 16, a new, continuing series of salacious 8mm shorts, re-mastered from original film prints. This collection features fifteen classic loops with titles like Vampire Sex, Lady Love, Sleepy Seduction, Lesbian Love, and more! Watch for adult film stars Linda Shaw, Lisa DeLeeuw, Erica Boyer and Marlene Willoughby in these raunchy rarities!

Director: Jose Ramon Larraz
Cast: Angela Pleasence, Lorna Heilbron, Peter Vaughan

Synopsis:

A dark and haunting study in psychological horror, Symptoms takes us deep into the twisted mind of a damaged girl.

Helen, who lives alone, invites her new friend Anne to stay with her in a lonely house, lost in the English countryside. The house, the woods that surround it and the figures fleetingly glimpsed through its windows, all seem imbued with a deep sense of mystery. Helen appears to be hiding a secret and the more Anne tries to uncover it, the deeper she is pulled into its dark heart.

Symptoms was the official UK entry to the Cannes film festival in 1974 and was highly praised at the time. Subsequently the film sank into obscurity and was recently listed as one of the UK's top 75 'lost films'. This release, taken from the original negative and fully restored, brings this quiet masterpiece back into view, where it can now be appreciated as one of the most under rated films of the 1970s.

SCHRAMM The story of a deranged serial killer from the director of Nekromantik. Lothar Schramm (Florian Koemer von Gustorf) is dying, face down in a pool of his own blood.

Film Fanaddict News : Three New DVD Releases From One 7 Movies For February 2016

In English with Italian and French subtitles
Color Widescreen Anamorphic 1.85:1 Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround Region 0
Production year: 2012 Genre: Horror
Director: Domiziano Cristopharo
Cast: Brock Madson, Valerio Cassa, Simone Destrero, Viktor Karam

Synopsis:

Red Krokodil tells the story of a man meant to represent all men. It is the story of a man addicted to 'Krokodil', that suddenly finds himself alone in a post-nuclear city similar to Chernobyl. His physical decay, caused by the massive intake of drugs, is mirrored in his inner world, as reality mixes with hallucinations. The result is a film that uses the Krokodil as a metaphor of destruction.

This movie deals with many themes, from the environment to the use of drugs, but the story is just an excuse that director Domiziano Cristopharo uses to focus on a psychological condition that brings a total detachment from oneself and from the surrounding world. A dark trip that shows no way out.

Production year: 1970 Genre: Drama
Director: Sergio Citti
Cast: Laurent Terzieff, Franco Citti, Anita Sanders, Ninetto Davoli, Lamberto Maggiorani

Synopsis:

Bandiera (Laurent Terzieff) and Rabbino (Franco Citti) are two dirt-poor brothers that live on the outskirts of Ostia, a small city by the seaside not far away from Rome. Haunted by their childhood memories the two still suffer from the presence of their long dead abusive father, an anarchist who married a devout catholic girl. One day the brothers find a beautiful girl sleeping in a field and take her to their rundown home. Soon the jealousies between Bandiera and Rabbino spark violently and break up their brotherly bond.

Written by Pier Paolo Pasolini and directed by Franco Citti, Ostia is an enchanted and dark ballad that unfortunately anticipated the poet's sad demise a few years later. Considered by many critics and scholars the best film that Pasolini never directed, it features Citti's keen eye and ear for the stern reality of the roman sub proletariat. Stylized and brutally honest and yet moving and lyrical, A Violent Life is a forgotten masterpiece of Italian cinema. A film far ahead of its time and ready to be discovered by a new generation of film lovers.

Synopsis:

YEARS IN THE MAKING! THE HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED RESTORATION OF THE UNDERGROUND FILM CLASSIC THUNDERCRACK! WILL FINALLY BE UNLEASHED TO THE PUBLIC!

Witness if you dare... THUNDERCRACK!... the world's only underground kinky art adult horror film, complete with four men, three women and rampaging circus animals. With the initial setup of an atmospheric gothic tale -- a dark and stormy night breakdown featuring a creepy old house on the hill -- it quickly turns into an eerie orgy of graphic humor, horror and sex. A tour de force of underground filmmaking with a plot beyond description, this film fully exposes itself with amazing dialogue and trash-noir lighting through which to peer at the pickles, the puke and the polymorphs.

In 1975, Curt McDowell and writer/actor George Kuchar created the exceptionally perverse and utterly brilliant THUNDERCRACK!, a film not recommended for those with tender sensibilities. A true cult classic that has shocked, excited and amazed audiences worldwide for 40 years, this presentation is the first ever official North American video release!

Rare archival interview segments with director Curt McDowell presented as audio commentary

Color Not Rated Full screen 1.33:1 Dolby Digital Mono Region 0
Production year: 1976 Genre: Erotica
Director: Zebedy Colt
Cast: Spalding Gray, Gayle Leonard, Susan McBain, Nancy Dare, Jon Black

Synopsis:

An innocent afternoon of spying on their parents having sex (and then forcibly sexually assaulting the farm hand) turns even more vile for three daughters when escaped convicts pick their farm to hide from the cops! A horrifying, hardcore afternoon of assault, torture and incest follows as the convicts take advantage of the entire family, culminating in a shocking, perverted game of Simon Says and a weirdly mixed and edited final montage. This film is the very definition of hardcore, and one of the most eyebrow raising films in the Impulse Pictures library!

One of the more notorious hardcore roughies of the 1970s, THE FARMER'S DAUGHTERS is a controversial classic. A sick, uncomfortable viewing experience that's a grizzly pornographic take on the home invasion LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT style of horror film... an uncomfortable viewing due to its sleazy and socially irredeemable content, (Ian Jane, Rock! Shock! Pop!). Also notable for starring Spalding Gray (SWIMMING TO CAMBODIA), in one of his three rare hardcore pornography roles, as one of the convicts.

Erotica Not Rated Production Year: 1994
Director: Tinto Brass
Cast: Franceso Casale, Katarina Vasillissa

THE VOYEUR based on the famous erotic novel (Luomo che Guarda) by Alberto Moravia, tells the story of Eduardo Dodo, who in public is a professor of French literature but in private a desperately lovesick cuckold, married to the ever-more-elusive Sylvia. His life is shattered, when he becomes an onlooker rather than a participant in life. Those around him, though, seem to be living life to the fullest. His bedridden father has a scantily clad nurse, his students have unending sexual fun, sometimes in his presence, and even the public beach has become an orgy ground. Through a series of small revelations, Dodo slowly comes to realize who his rival is, the discovery, rather than destroying his marriage, strengthens and renews it.

Erotic filmmaker Tinto Brass is here at the height of his powers, crafting an unforgettable fable of sexual desire. The music by Riz Ortolani is seductive, the set designs are sumptuous, and the photography is as stunning as Hitchcock's, and the lead performers, Franceso Casale and Katarina Vasillissa (a Polish photomodel) are eye-catching. Cult Epics presents in New High Definition the Uncut version with both the Italian language track, and the newly mixed English language track.

After a successful career producing some of the biggest studio films of the late 50s, Albert Zugsmith decided to follow his passion for directing. His extensive and extremely diverse body of work combined art film pretention with drive-in sleaze, resulting in thoroughly unique hybrid projects. Vinegar Syndrome presents two of his most sought-after films completely uncut!

ON HER BED OF ROSES: A deranged sniper shoots at cars on a freeway, only to commit suicide as the police close in. In a series of flashbacks, the people who knew this disturbed young man reflect on what might have caused him to embark on his deadly rampage. Directed by Albert Zugsmith (Confessions of an Opium Eater), On Her Bed of Roses is an odd blending of post-noir, Vietnam era character drama and drive-in sleaze. Presented here in its rarely seen international 'hot' version and restored from the original 35mm negative.

THE INCREDIBLE SEX REVOLUTION: A young woman relays her sexual hang-ups to her psychiatrist. As her problems play out in flashbacks, the psychiatrist shares stories of historical sex, leading up to an orgiastic conclusion.

Mixing equal parts sex, giallo, and comedy, this unabashedly erotic film is a stylish sexploitation epic from the notorious director of The Sexorcist (L'Ossessa).

PLAY MOTEL streets on August 25th, in a new HD transfer from the original 35mm negative featuring new and improved English subtitle translation. The SRP for the Blu-ray is $29.95, and the SRP for the DVD is $24.95. Special features include Midas Touch, an 18 minute interview with the producer and cast by Nocturno Video, cut scenes featuring 7 minutes of censored footage, and a fully illustrated booklet.

SYNOPSIS:
PLAY MOTEL is a milestone production from Mario Gariazzo, originally known to American audiences as Roy Garrett, and notorious for such exploitation epics as The Sexorcist (L'Ossessa). Assembling here one of the world's finest trash film collectives and eschewing any form of political correctness, the director weaves a garish fleshly tapestry and populates it with Marina Hedman (Frajese) and Patrizia Di Rossi (Webley), two of the most unabashedly erotic actresses in Italian cinema. At the garishly-lit Play Motel, these wayward women (and an assortment of bleached blondes) are first seen being secretly photographed while having kinky sex. But what begins as a sexy romp soon turns into a giallo, as the guests at Play Motel are stabbed to death by a black-clad assassin. Comedy at its darkest, PLAY MOTEL is sure to satisfy viewers who crave a more diabolical flavor of sexploitation (and fetishists of leopard-skin underwear as well).

Cast: DEVIL HUNTER- Ursula Fellner, Al Cliver, Robert Foster and Gisela Hahn

Synopsis:

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 (Zombie Lake) 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!

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.

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.

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)

Production years: 1970s-1980s
Genre: Erotica
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.

Open in new window42nd Street Forever: The Peep Show Collection Vol. 11
DVD
Label: Impulse Pictures
Pre-book: 05/12/2015 Streets: 06/09/2015
SRP: $24.95 UPC: 654930106792 Cat: IMP0067 Run Time: 107 minutes In English
Color Not Rated Full Screen 1.33:1 Dolby Digital Mono Region 0
Production year: 1970s-80s Genre: Erotica
Director: Various
Cast: Various

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. 11, a new, continuing series of salacious 8mm shorts, re-mastered from original film prints. This collection features fifteen classic loops with titles like Girl Scout Nookies, Hi Karate, Licorice Lesbians, Cucumber Girl, After School Fun and more. Watch for adult film stars Annie Sprinkle, Linda Shaw, Maria Tortuga, and Leslie Bovee in these raunchy rarities!

SRP: $24.95 UPC:654930106891 Cat: IMP0068 Run Time: 64 minutes In English
Color Not Rated Full Screen 1.33:1 Dolby Digital Mono Region 0
Production years: 1972 Genre: Erotica
Director: Unknown (Rumored to be Gerard Damiano)
Cast: Unknown

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.

Bonus Features:
