  • The Ray Dennis Steckler Thread

    It's probably time we start one. Not sure if Media Blasters was supposed to let this out of the bag yet or but, but they did.... unless I'm misreading this, which is entirely possible.

      I've been asking for a Steckler box set for years, so this is great news. Of course, we don't yet know if these will be his early films or his later porno flicks. I hope the set will center on his earlier films.

            We don't even know all the porn films he directed yet.

              I find Steckler's xxx films much more watchable than his other films.

                  McFarland books will release a book entitled THE INCREDIBLY STRANGE FEATURES OF RAY DENNIS STECKLER in July of 2022. It will reportedly feature both his early cult films and his later porn efforts.

                        See: the incredibly comprehensive 10-disc career spanning collection from producer/director/writer/showman/star Ray Dennis Steckler – along with noms de cinéma that included Sven Christian, Wolfgang Schmidt, Cindy Lou Sutters and Cash Flagg – “an unheralded auteur misunderstood by the mainstream and de-legitimized by a critical community unable to appreciate his genius.” (PopMatters)

                        See: 20 incredibly strange films – scanned in 4K/2K from the best existing 35MM/16MM vault elements, sole remaining prints and video masters – including several rarely-seen, thought-lost or never-before-on-disc, plus all-new Special Features, audio commentaries, a full-color book and more that smashes the fun barrier!

                        See: the incredibly true story – filmed in Hallucinogenic Hypno-Vision & Terrorama! – behind one of the most incomparable, unstoppable and wildly original talents in horror, exploitation, adult film and pop culture history.

                          Holy shit, the Joe Bob commentaries and inclusion of his sexploitation xxx films make this a must buy for me.

                            I don't have much Steckler experience so may be a bit of a risky blind buy. But $150 seems good value for 20 films.
                            I'm bitter, I'm twisted, James Joyce is fucking my sister.

                              If you're not that familiar with Steckler I'd say explore more of his films first.

                              Aside from Wild Guitar, which is loads of fun, most of his horror films are glacially paced. They do have a psychotronic vibe though. As I've said before I prefer his xxx films but even those aren't exactly 'good' either.

                              I'd say Steckler is even more of an acquired taste than Andy Milligan!
