IMDb comment:

Genuinely erotic fantasy

This is a superior example of a European softporno, one of the few that dares to use the form of a (kind of) drama, without pretending to have become an arthouse picture. In other words: we are not subjected to the violence, humiliation, or silly humour that is so common in 1970s sleaze or the B-movies of the video era; neither do we have to endure any attempts to bring a message across as in the naughtier arthouse pics. This is an erotic film, full stop. Continue reading

After murdering his mother, Angelo (Pierfrancesco Campanella) hooks up with Valeria (Milly D’Abbraccio), a rich and spoilt girl who’s psychologically unstable. Between them a silent complicity is soon established as they both seem to find inner fulfillment in acts of random and senseless violence. Naturally, they embark on a killing spree, and even more naturally their path is one where sexual situations abound. This is Pierfrancesco Campanella’s first foray into moviemaking. Also Milly D’Abbraccio’s first starring role. A curious and sleazy mix of teenage frustration (the first draft of the screenplay was written when Campanella was 14 years old), corrosive anti-establishment irony and love of cinema (with references to HONEYMOON KILLERS, TRASH and I PUGNI IN TASCA among others). But don’t think for a minute that it’s pretentious arthouse garbage. Above all it’s pure trashy entertainment, just the way we like it. Continue reading

In 1975, European sex symbol Sirpa Lane shocked the world with her performance as a maiden defiled by a ferociously aroused animal in the erotic classic The Beast. Five years later, the beautiful-but-doomed actress would plummet from arthouse to grindhouse in this insanely unofficial outer space ‘sequel’ packed with rampant sex, cheezy effects, barnyard passions and yet another graphic ravaging by a hugely-endowed man-beast. Marina Hedman (Satan’s Baby Doll) and Venantino Venantini (Black Emanuelle) co-star in this jaw-dropping intergalactic epic that combines the immortal ’80s Italian genres of sleazy sci-fi and depraved sexual saga, now fully restored from the original film lab negative purchased at a Rome bankruptcy auction. The story gets under way as Captain Larry (Vassili Karis) stops off at a local watering hole for a cool glass of Uranus Milk. After striking up a conversation with stunning blonde Sondra (Lane), Captain Larry is confronted by an angry merchant named Juan who had been attempting to work his charm on the girl. A barroom brawl ensues, and after Captain Larry defeats Juan he swipes a vial from him and takes Sondra home. The next day, Captain Larry receives word that the vial contained a highly valuable space mineral. The Star Fleet wants Captain Larry to travel to the planet where the mineral was found and bring back more, and they’ve assembled a skilled crew to accompany him on the mission. Continue reading

Plot Summary:
A sailor takes an American businessman and his girlfriend to an island where the businessman wants to build a resort. Soon a weird voodoo couple show up and warn them of bad things that are going to happen. It doesn’t take long for the zombies to show up and start chowing down on human flesh. The main characters do manage to fit in quite a bit of sex though.

Review:
One of the most interesting consequences of the brief period of “porno chic” in the early 70s was the resulting effect on the Italian exploitation industry. Never quick to miss an American cinematic “craze”, a lot of film-makers found themselves curiously crossing genres and stuffing hardcore porn into other genres, as well as vice versa. The absolute master of this was the ubiquitous Joe D’Amato, and here he fuses porno with the zombie movie (which at the time was in the midst of enormous popularity in Italy). Continue reading

29f7c043f76a2bde437fd0d52a185152 Lucio Fulci   Allonorevole piacciono le donne AKA The Eroticist (1972)

Description: “Though today he is revered for his graphic horror films, writer-director Lucio Fulci got his start in comedy. With this in mind, The Eroticist makes perfect sense — it continues the delirious stylistic inventiveness of ‘Perversion Story’ and ‘A Lizard in a Woman’s Skin’, yet its bawdy humor fits in perfectly with his origins in the cinema. The nonsensical English title implies that the film is a cash-in on William Friedkin’s The Exorcist, yet the film — originally titled The Senator Likes Women! — dates from a year before the American blockbuster. Make no mistake about it: this is as far removed as imaginable for the horror genre, at least in terms of content, although the sharp satirical barbs at the Catholic Church and Italian politics fits in comfortably with many of his better known works.

29f7c043f76a2bde437fd0d52a185152 Miklós Jancsó   Vizi privati, pubbliche virtù aka Private Vices, Public Virtues (1976)

SYNOPSIS:
The son of Emperor Franz Josef of Austria, Crown Prince Rudolf, is believed to have shot his female lover and himself in a tragic suicide pact in 1882 in Mayerling. Due to Imperial cover-ups, the full story may never be known. This story has been filmed several times, in French in 1935 and in English in 1968. Hungarian director Miklos Jancso recreates those events for his own purposes, continuing his favored theme of the rejection of paternal authority. In the film, which has very little dialog, Rudolf is a good-natured pan-sexual golden boy, who cavorts on his rural estate with a host of beautiful, aristocratic lovers and friends of both sexes. He refuses to leave his country idyll even though he has been ordered to by the Emperor, his father. Despite the fact that for a large part of the film, attractive young people go about unclothed and engaging in erotic encounters, the mood is one of melancholy rather than prurience. The Prince is a political liberal who wishes to arrange things so that the Emperor will arrest him, creating a public scandal which will provide a rallying point for the opposition. Instead, when the expected troops come, Rudolf’s sensuous friends loyally ward off the Imperial officers, humiliating them in the process. The result is that the guests, the Prince and a hermaphrodite friend are killed by newly arrived Imperial reinforcements, and the now-familiar official story of murder and suicide is concocted for public consumption. ~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide Continue reading
