Tinto Brass
Black Angel
Tinto BrassIn 1945 Italy, Livia (stunning Anna Galiena), the bored wife of an Italian official, recalls the taboo affair she has been having with a much younger Nazi lieutenant (Gabriel Garko). The elation of her middle-aged sexual awakening is soon diminished when she discovers that her lover's intentions are far from honest. Ashamed and betrayed, she must make the difficult decision to resolve her devastating erotic entanglement. Tinto Brass reminds us why he is a master of his art. The lush and sentimental Ennio Morricone score beautifully complements the striking cinematography that contrasts the bliss of a woman's rediscovery with a society ravaged by war. This is Camillo Boito's 1882 novella Senso as only maestro-of-erotica Tinto Brass could tell it. Cult Epics is proud to release this contemporary classic drama on DVD for the first time in the US.

The Howl
Tinto BrassThe Howl is a true surrealist cult classic, filled with eye-shattering imagery, visual jokes, impossible characters, riotous comedy, and punk rock music well before its time. A young bride escapes her wedding ceremony with a stranger and together they set off on an epic journey though increasingly bizarre lands. They encounter talking animals and mournful exhibitionists, converse with a discoursing rock, journey through a surrealist's psychedelic hotel, instigate a prison riot, escape from naked cannibals living in a tree and battle a wind-up midget dictator! Featuring the legendary Tina Aumont (Casanova) as the bride and Italy's great clown Luigi Proietti as her make-shift partner, The Howl challenges authority and convention in the true anarchist spirit of the 1960s.

Famous for his later erotica, Tinto Brass presents here one of the greatest works of the era - along with A Clock Work Orange, a film he was asked to direct, but instead made The Howl; one of the strangest films ever! Cult Epics presents the rare, original version of The Howl, taken directly from Tinto Brass' personal print.

Italian language with optional English subtitles.

The Flesh
Marco FerreriTHE FLESH (La Carne) is a romantic black comedy about a divorced piano player named Paolo (Sergio Castellitto) who meets and falls in love with a most beauteously busty woman (bombshell Francesca Dellera), who uses her special powers to turn the man into her slave. The film depicts the oftentimes torturous nature of desire and the power of women in a cinematic work where Francesca becomes a symbolic representation of male desire, with her voluptuous figure and sex appeal being intoxicating to Paolo. While he is completely taken by his desire for Francesca, she eventually gets bored with him and decides to leave. Unfortunately for Francesca, Paolo loves her and has no intention of allowing her to go.

Francesca Dellera was once named in real-life, "the most beautiful woman in the world." She began her career with Tinto Brass' Capriccio, but it was not until her role in La Carne, when premiered at Cannes, that she received international acclaim. Directed by Italian maestro Marco Ferreri, who is best known for such classics as Tales of Ordinary Madness and Le Grand Bouffe, THE FLESH is presented by Cult Epics for the first time in High-definition with exclusive bonus features and a limited edition slipcase with newly commissioned art by Gilles Vranckx.

Frank & Eva
Pim de la ParraFRANK & EVA: Living Apart Together

Frank (BLUE MOVIE's Hugo Metsers) and Eva (THE LIFT's Willeke van Ammelrooy) cannot live with or without each other. In the liberal 1970s, Frank sleeps with every woman he can get. Eva, meanwhile, is looking for more security and wants to start a family. Frank's behavior frustrates her so much that she starts an affair with their mutual friend. This social drama offers a view on relationships not much different than today. For Sylvia Kristel (her debut prior to EMMANUELLE), a special role was written after she said to Pim de la Parra, "Why won't you discover me? I'm the best."

Frank & Eva is the second artsploitation film by director Pim de la Parra, after he produced BLUE MOVIE with his partner Wim Verstappen. Cult Epics presents its worldwide premiere on Blu-ray and DVD, in High-definition with extensive bonus features.

Obsessions
Pim de la ParraThe obscure film OBSESSIONS (aka A HOLE IN THE WALL) was directed by Dutch artsploitation auteur Pim de la Parra and co-produced by longtime collaborator Wim Verstappen (BLUE MOVIE). This gritty, psychedelic Hitchcockian mystery, which is notable for being the first Dutch film shot in English-language, starts in a savagely brutal fashion. When a bloody painting of Vincent van Gogh falls from a wall and exposes a makeshift peephole, student protagonist Nils Janssen (played by the film's German co-producer Dieter Geissler) becomes an unwitting witness to a gruesome sex crime next door. When his young fiancée Marina (Alexandra Stewart of Truffaut's DAY FOR NIGHT), an enterprising journalist, tells him about a report of a murder that she is writing, he naturally wonders if it's the very same killing.

This classic exploitation film was the birth of auteur cinema in Holland, and inspired legendary filmmakers such as Paul Verhoeven to make their start in the industry. Originally distributed in over 100 countries, the film remained unreleased in the U. S. (and France) until now. Perhaps most notably, the film was co-written by a young Martin Scorsese, who shot the legendary erotic dream sequence for his first feature WHO'S THAT KNOCKING AT MY DOOR (1968) in Amsterdam, that same year. Additionally, the film also stars legendary Dutch filmmaker Fons Rademakers (MIRA, THE ASSAULT), is edited by Henry Rust (CHILDREN OF PARADISE) and scored by Hitchcock composer Bernard Herrmann (TAXI DRIVER, SISTERS). OBSESSIONS is a curious cultural hybrid where late-1960s Dutch exploitation and classic Hollywood Hitchcock collide in a provocative and revolutionary fashion. Hitchcock, Scorsese & Sex. Made in Holland.
