Promotional Material

More than four decades after the subgenre first shocked the world, the most depraved Nazisploitation sickie of them all must still be seen to be believed: Writer/director Luigi Batzella ( THE DEVIL'S WEDDING NIGHT , NUDE FOR SATAN ) combines footage from two earlier WWII action movies with a newly-shot plot featuring a sadistic female Nazi officer ( Macha Magall of Bruno Mattei's SS GIRLS ), a perpetually aroused caged ogre ( Salvatore Baccaro aka 'Boris Lugosi' of FRANKENSTEIN'S CASTLE OF FREAKS ), and a cavalcade of sexual atrocities that Horror-Extreme.com calls "tasteless and glorious...it gathers all the ethos of the genre and smashes it into a wonderfully hellish mix." Never released in America and banned as a 'Video Nasty' in the UK, this notorious feast of smut-schnitzel is now scanned from 35mm negative elements with a blitzkrieg of all-new Special Features. Special Features:
  • Fascism On A Thread -- The Strange Story of Nazisploitation Cinema : A new feature length documentary featuring interviews with Dyanne 'Ilsa' Thorne, Malissa 'Elsa' Longo, Filmmakers Sergio Garrone, Mariano Caiano, Rino Di Silvestro, Liliana Cavani, Bruno Mattei and many more .

Summary Notes

Jennifer Hills is back. Forty years after 1978's I Spit On Your Grave shocked the world with its story of a beautiful career woman assaulted and left for dead, and her notorious revenge on those responsible, cinema's most lethal lady vengeance returns in the most anticipated sequel of all time. Reuniting star Camille Keaton and original director Meir Zarchi, I Spit On Your Grave: Déjŕ vu sends now successful writer Jennifer Hills hurtling back to where it all began - to face the wrath of the families of those she murdered. Kidnapped along with her daughter scream queen star Jamie Bernadette, it's a tense game of hunt - or be hunted - against a lethal gang of degenerates overseen by a violently unhinged matriarch Maria Olsen. Meir Zarchi delivers the next explosive saga in the most controversial tale of an eye-for-an-eye ever committed to celluloid. Some grudges refuse to be buried- David Maquire.

 

 

Shopping: I Spit On Your Grave...

1978 US video nasty by Meir Zarchi just released on US DVD to coincide with the release of a new sequel


Link Here 24th April 2019
I Spit On Your Grave is a 1978 USA horror thriller by Meir Zarchi.
Starring Camille Keaton, Eron Tabor and Richard Pace. IMDb
Perhaps one of the most famous of the video nasties probably because it is one of the better films on the list. It shows brutal and protracted scenes of the violation and humiliation of Camille Keaton. Armed with resolve and intelligence Keaton avenges herself by chopping up, hanging, drowning and castrating her tormentors.
US: Uncut and MPAA Unrated for:

Summary Notes

The film follows Jennifer, a writer who is working on a new novel and needs to get out of the city to finish it. She rents a riverside cabin in upstate New York to work on her novel, attracting the attention of a number of rowdy male locals. They catch Jennifer one day and strip her naked for the village idiot (Matthew) and rape her. Jennifer is later attacked and raped a further two times by the four degenerates, and her novel is also destroyed. But Jennifer recovers, and in her now-twisted, psychotic state, she begins to seek revenge on the men.

Promotional Material

Much-missed by fans of quick-jack cinema, the late Jess Franco had a career in fear that veered between arty outings such as VAMPYRO LESBOS (1971) and the cheap and cheerful projects that includes the official 'video nasty' DEVIL HUNTER (1980). Featuring a leading man turn from the Italian horror legend Al Cliver (ZOMBIE FLESH-EATERS/ THE BEYOND), DEVIL HUNTER is part Indiana Jones, part CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980) and all outrageous insanity as Franco throws-in babes, bare-boobs and blood and native-battles in an attempt to keep audiences glued to the screen. For fans of cheese and sleaze, it does not get any better than DEVIL HUNTER - finally available for Franco enthusiasts and video nasty lovers to reappraise in HD!

1980 Spain / France video nasty by Alain Deruelle just released on UK Blu-ray

UK: Previously passed 18 uncut for:

Promotional Material

First there was CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980)... Then came CANNIBAL FEROX (1981)... But somewhere in France, someone was already hatching a plot to cash-in on the Italian intestinal classics with CANNIBAL TERROR (1981). With no budget, no professional actors and no flights to Amazonia, CANNIBAL TERROR instead gives us Deodato and Lenzi on a cash-strapped level and the end result is THE ROOM of cannibal movies!! Brilliant, banal and blood-soaked late night entertainment, CANNIBAL TERROR was also one of the infamous 'video nasties' in the UK - showing that our beloved censors and moral guardians have little in the way of a sense of humour! However, this torrid tale of stranded tourists being hunted by hungry natives is a work of demented genius that words can barely do service to - and it is our great pleasure to offer audiences another chance to see CANNIBAL TERROR, this time in a delirious HD special edition!
