  • Best Damiano Film?
    MEMORIES WITHIN MISS AGGIE is my favorite, hands down, with SKIN FLICKS coming in at number 2.I'm always a sucker for depressing X rated films, and these deliver in spades. Plus, MEMORIES was written by one of the greatest screenwriters to work on X rated movies, Ron Wertheim.

  • Country Comfort (1981) - scene missing?
    Flash wrote:IAFD doesn't list that scene, which doesn't mean that it wasn't in the original hardcore version. The DVD, if that is the version you saw, is one of the TVX releases. They have hacked some of their other releases to pieces for the DVD, for instance Irresistible. That isn't necessarily what has happened. Back then there was often alternate footage shot for the softcore releases, the footage you are talking about may have been shot for the softcore version only. To refer to Irresistible again, there are three added scenes for the softcore version and two extended scenes for the softcore version that to my knowledge were never in the hardcore version.To clarify regarding IRRESISTIBLE, the awful 87 min cut that bootleg companie...

    Otherwise, the best feature I've seen recently is the 1980 film A WOMAN'S DREAM, which was maybe directed by either Richard Mailer or Peter Perry, depending on who you believe, and was reissued as TABOO VII in the early 90s, with a phony Kirdy Stevens director credit.It's a solid little XXX social satire that's never exactly clear what it's supposedly satirizing, but it more than makes up for that with some inspired and weird moments, most notably the ridiculous musical sequence that opens the film.

    I have a theory on Baby Rosemary and try watching it with this in mind: Everything, starting with the shot of John Leslie walking down the street after he leaves Rosemary at around 6-7 minutes in, through the end of the film, is all Rosemary's dream/nightmare/fantasy.Note that, at this point, the film entirely dispenses with logic and time and enters a dream like style where things become progressively weirder.Another interesting thing to pay attention to is that the photos surrounding Rosemary's mirror are used in the montage that closes the film.I therefor feel that the entire movie, with the exception of the opening couple scenes, is a weird dream/nightmare from Rosemary's perspective. As is noted in the reviews of Hayes' earlier film, D...

A few years ago I saw the 1987 version with Eric Edwards and didn't think it was too bad for late eighties porn. It wasn't until later that I found out it was a remake and have been looking for the original ever since. I've been a fan of John Alderman (Frank Hollowell) for years and would like to see him in a lead role.We didn't get:ALL THE LOVING KINFOLKUP YOURSLIKE IT ISDREAM NO EVILWe got the rest though, so yeah, be on the lookout for restored versions in 2015.

    I thought some of you may be excited to know that we bought the rights to all of Chris Warfield's films (with the exception of the 4 he sold to Kit Parker). We're gonna be releasing them starting in June. The first is a double feature of BABY ROSEMARY and HOT LUNCH, both restored from the camera negs, then in July we have ALL NIGHT LONG and TAPESTRY OF PASSION, also restored from the camera negs. August is looking like CATHOUSE FEVER and PURELY PHYSICAL...

Only if that level of quality had been sustained in the video era.Leslie made a few 16mm features, the best of which are DOG WALKER, CHAMELEONS and ANYTHING THAT MOVES. They're all quite excellent.

  • Best Video Features
    I've liked everything I've seen by Nic Andrew, especially BLOOD ANGELS 2.Recently I watched John Leslie's FRESH MEAT: A GHOST STORY.Terms like 'good' and 'bad' don't apply. It's one of the most unique and original X rated movies I've seen. It's essentially an absurdist piece of video art with some 8mm segments.I'd highly recommend it.

Here's hoping it's one of the DeRenzy classics.Speaking of which, are we likely to see Pleasure Masters amongst these releases? That one's a personal favourite of mine.We are doing DeRenzy films however a number of his key titles are problematic in terms of finding good elements. Among them, for now, is PLEASURE MASTERS. I'm hoping to do a double feature of PLEASURE MASTERS and FANTASY GIRLS (for which we have nice elements).Our first DeRenzy release is PRETTY PEACHES 2/PRETTY PEACHES 3, both of which have been sourced from their camera negatives.

  • Best Classic lesbian porn film ?
    Up until the 80s, there was no such thing as 'lesbian porn features.' Lesbian sex was common in regular X rated features but there weren't films that specifically focused on it.Even in the 80's, the lesbian stuff that was released was simply SOV junk. Not feature films.

    Seeing as I run Vinegar Syndrome, I can tell you first hand that the DVD vs Blu decision is based on cost constraints rather than quality. However, all of the films you mentioned as well as all of the titles we're planning to release are being sourced from either good, complete prints or from original negatives. WENDY'S PALACE/SEXUALIST, VIXENS/ORIENTAL, and VIRGIN/FEELINGS were sourced from negatives and look amazing. The other came from good, uncut 35mm prints and represent by far the best home video presentations these films have ever had (and probably will ever have) .The VIXENS/ORIENTAL disc was done in cooperation with Distribpix, who we do all film scanning for, so everything is up to Steven's quality standards. Together with Distrib...

  • October 2013: Monthly Feature: Best Horror Porn
    THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS is not only my favorite X rated horror film, it's my favorite X rated film, period!I'll also second DRACULA EXOTICA and DARK ANGLES & DARK ANGELS 2Although I don't think HARDGORE is very good, there's certainly nothing like it.I think Roger Watkins' oddball art film CORRUPTION sorta passes as horror (there is necrophelia, after all) so I'd give that a recommendation. I'm also very fond of Ted Roter's THE PSYCHIATRIST, aka ALL THE DEVIL'S ANGELS. It's a next mix of murder mystery and satanic horror.A very worthwhile sleeper is HOT NASTIES aka DEADLY LOVE.I even enjoy THE DEVIL'S ECSTASY, as disjointed and nonsensical as it is.
