Jesús FrancoSINFONIA EROTICA - The lost masterpiece from Jess Franco & the Marquis de Sade now in HD for the first time ever!

At the close of the '70s, eminent auteur Jess Franco (SHE KILLED IN ECSTASY) revisited the works of the Marquis de Sade to create what EuroSleaze historians have called one of the most sexually daring and boldly creative films of his entire career.

When an unstable noblewoman (a fearless performance by Lina Romay) returns to her lavish estate, she will find herself - along with her libertine husband, his male lover, and a young nun with a craving for violation - trapped in a web of unholy hungers and decadent perversions. Susan Hemingway of TWO FEMALE SPIES WITH FLOWERED PANTIES co-stars in this sonata of artsy depravity - featuring a score by Franco and Franz Liszt - now transferred in 4k from an uncut 35mm print donated by The Instituto de la Sexualidad Humana in Madrid.

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World
Stanley KramerStanley Kramer followed his Oscar-winning Judgment at Nuremberg with this sobering investigation of American greed. Ah, who are we kidding? It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, about a group of strangers fighting tooth and nail over buried treasure, is the most grandly harebrained movie ever made, a pileup of slapstick and borscht-belt-y one-liners performed by a nonpareil cast, including Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Ethel Merman, Mickey Rooney, Spencer Tracy, Jonathan Winters, and a boatload of other playing-to-the-rafters comedy legends. For sheer scale of silliness, Kramer's wildly uncharacteristic film is unlike any other, an exhilarating epic of tomfoolery.

Rolls Royce Baby
Erwin C. DietrichAfter producing a string of films for notorious Spanish director Jess Franco (Barbed Wire Dolls, Jack the Ripper), Swiss producer Erwin C. Dietrich "borrowed" Franco's main muse, actress Lina Romay, for a sexploitation romp of his own. Their resulting collaboration was 1975's Rolls Royce Baby, a salacious and intensely erotic cinematic experience featuring the beautiful Romay at her most sexually uninhibited. Romay stars as Lisa, a curvy nymphomaniac who prowls the countryside in her classic, chauffeur-driven, Rolls Royce picking up any man she can find and engaging in all manner of explicit sexual acts. Dietrich forgoes any narrative contrivances and simply focuses on Lina's outstanding natural physical attributes, picturesque scenery and a cavalcade of hot couplings that happen in and out of that glorious Rolls Royce, while composer Walter Baumgartner's delirious score pumps away in the background. Full Moon is excited to present this ultra-rare, insanely sexy slice of vintage European erotica in a digitally remastered, FULLY UNCUT transfer, culled directly from Dietrich's own 35mm negative.
