"Cries of Pleasure" Blu-Ray Review (Severin Films)
Obscure even by hardcore Jess Franco fan standards, it remains the legendary writer/director’s most daring work of his early ‘80s erotic shocker oeuvre: Inspired by Hitchcock’s ROPE, Franco utilized long takes, minimal edits and his beloved Lina Romay at her most extreme for this de Sade-induced saga of violence, depravity and psychosexual mayhem among the amoral elite. Antonio Mayans (aka Robert Foster of DEVIL HUNTER and HOT NIGHTS OF LINDA), Rocío Freixas (THE SINISTER DR. ORLOFF) and Elisa Vela (aka Jasmina Bell of MANSION OF THE LIVING DEAD) co-star in this fascinating Franco rarity from his Golden Films Internacional period, now featuring a 4k scan from the original negative and all-new Special Features.

"A powerful and unsettling work." Tim Lucas, Video Watchdog
"A unique force in the world of cinema. There is more heart and soul in one scene from a Franco film than in the entire output of a Spielberg or a Cameron.” David Flint, Movies & Mania

"The Night of Open Sex" Blu-Ray Review (Severin Films)
During the same period that he was making the certifiably insane INCONFESSABLE ORGIES OF EMMANUELLE, SEXUAL STORY OF O and CRIES OF PLEASURE for Spain’s Golden Films Internacional, Goya Award winner Jess Franco also wrote and directed this delirious hybrid of sexy caper comedy, EuroSpy suspense thriller, hard-boiled erotic noir, and depraved fetish shocker complete with jaw-dropping girl-on-girl violence. Jess’ equally legendary partner/muse Lina Romay – here at her most lusciously uninhibited – stars with Antonio Mayans (CANNIBAL TERROR), Lorna Green (MACUMBA SEXUAL), Albino Graziani (MANSION OF THE LIVING DEAD) and even Jess himself in this “fast-moving and slyly humorous” (El Franconomicon) rarity, now scanned in 4k from the original negative with all-new Special Features.

"Welcome to the lurid universe of Franco's 1980s Spanish productions." Kino Detour
"A visually gorgeous film about very sordid happenings... There are shootings, double crosses, torture sessions, exotic locales, and Lina Romay has never looked sexier.” I’m In A Jess Franco State Of Mind

Sensing the Lund's vulnerability, he decides to take control of the family, then destroy it through deceit and emotional manipulation.

Formula for a murder aka 7, Hyden Park: la casa maledetta Check on IMDB
Legendary cult-icon David Warbeck (THE BEYOND, LAST HUNTER) gives an explosive performance in this long-lost Giallo never released in UK. This Collector’s Edition is remastered from new restored HD materials in the film’s original widescreen format, for the 1st time!
Joanna – who is wheelchair-bound after a horrific childhood attack – is a philanthropist who has funded a sports centre for paraplegics. She now plans to donate a large part of her wealth to the local church, but visions of a priest-looking figure carrying a blood-soaked doll start to haunt her… and whilst the apparitions seem to stem from Joanna’s traumatized psyche, they soon become horribly real!
Watch Warbeck put on his yellow mac and turn from Joanna’s debonair fitness instructor into a conniving, violent, sadistic criminal .. Grimacing and slashing. Unstoppable. Shameless.
