  • I hope it's Devil's Nightmare, that movie needs a better release than that old Redemption non anamorphic release, and plus I read also the Redemption release is missing 2 minutes of lesbo action. It's one of the best early 70's Euro horror films ever in my opinion, I would love to see this one get a blu ray update.

    • It took me a while to get to Infrasexum, mainly because I think you need to be in the right frame of mind for a Tobalina movie, but man, what a nutty-ass movie. I've got a full review done to post this week but in short, the whole thing is a weird mix of softcore bumping and grinding, B-grade crime highjinks and oddly personal drama about coming to terms with erectile dysfunction. Tobalina co-stars and I guess sort of plays himself? Anyone else check this out yet? This movie deserves a wider audience, it's full of WTF moments and while it doesn't make a whole lot of sense by the time it's all over and done with, getting to that nonsensical finale is pretty fun.

      • Is it on Exploitation.tv yet? Sounds up my alley. Tobalina is one of the 'almost good' directors.

        • I don't know if it's there or not, can't check from work.

          When the subject of Al Adamson came up on the VS FB group, 'Lee Jones' said:

          "Severin is currently working on an Al Adamson related project. We have licensed a few of his films."

                    Yeah I loved it, Tobalina gets a lot of flack for being a poor director, but everything I've seen of his so far has been enjoyable.

                      Is it really, I thought all copies of this films were lost or in rough shape.

                        I like the Tobaline films I've seen released by VS too, they are enjoyable films, they aren't at the level of the top adult films, but they are fun, and definitely not bad films. I am glad to have them on DVD. I wanted to let VS know I loved their release of The 13th Pig, very good blu ray release. I had previously read about it in Nightmare USA by Stephen Thrower, and had never seen it before, but he said it was great, so I picked it up and really loved it.

                        • "Look for four more Blu-ray/DVD combo releases in the Vinegar Syndrome Blaxploitation series, coming soon, including: Moore's The Human Tornado (1976), the sequel to Dolemite, being released May 31; Petey Wheatstraw (1977), out June 28; and, finally, his absurdist classic, Disco Godfather (1979), available July 26.

                          Also, a don't-miss double-feature (together in one release) with Matt Cimber's The Candy Tangerine Man (1975), reportedly Samuel L. Jackson's all-time favorite Blaxploitation film, and Lady Cocoa (1975), out June 28. "

                              • Following the unprecedented success of his 1970 film Mona, director Howard Ziehm quickly established himself as a one-man filmmaking machine, directing dozens of boundary pushing sex films. Presented here are two of his most unique and important early works.

                                HARLOT:
                                Mary and Melody are best friends, though Melody is uncomfortable around Mary's sexual openness. After finally being coaxed into sexual experimentation, Melody begins to discover her erotic self and indulges in a series of sexual adventures, each wilder than the last. One of the most transgressive early X rated films, HARLOT is an avant-garde influenced, anti-establishment oddity, presented fully uncut for the first time on DVD.
                                D: Howard Ziehm / 1970 / 64 min / Color / 1.33:1

                                TIJUANA BLUE:
                                After discovering that his girlfriend is pregnant, a man named Jamie agrees to assist on a drug run from Tijuana back to LA so that he can raise the money necessary for an abortion. However upon his arrival in Mexico, he soon discovers that there may be more to the operation than drugs…
