Odissea della Morte
“A love letter to the works of David Cronenberg and Jess Franco, executed in D’Amato’s unique take on the giallo film”. ~ Film Bizarro
Selected as #13 in Film Bizarro’s “Top 30 of 2017”! A young man is accused of his ex-girlfriend’s murder. Before he’s formally charged by the police, he sets out on a two-day odyssey to find the real killer – tracking down his leads from the backseat of a rented limousine; which allows him to contemplate class society, life in the city, and the grime that runs in the small nooks and valleys of cosmopolitan life. Like the earlier works of Vince D’Amato for his Brivido Giallo trilogy, this wildly kinetic and erotic film moves through a world of contemporary, wordless, operatic imagery of sex and violence. Odissea della Morte features the talents of several cult film actors, including Momona Komagata (“Peelers”), Dan Ellis (“Bloodshock”), burlesque starlet Tristan Risk (“American Mary”, “Amazon Hot Box”), and cult icon Lynn Lowry (“Shivers”, “The Crazies”, and 1982’s “Cat People”). https://vimeo.com/ondemand/odisseadellamorte2 Also available on Blu-ray

When Julia’s father hears of her sexual transgressions, she is sadistically punished… Through these experiences, the girls slowly come of age while exploring their sexuality and finding liberation in a repressed society. …The beautiful Taylor Sands and Daniella Rosa star in this homage to the politically-charged erotic cinema of Tinto Brass, Walerian Borowczyk, and Jess Franco. “…[A] visually alluring story with original, wonderful, melodious music” ~ Amazon.com. https://vimeo.com/ondemand/pictureofbeauty2 Also available on Blu-ray

7 Sins is divided into seven segments, each one unique in its voice, acting, story, and style. While the seven deadly sins are cemented in Catholic Theology and are always the same, the interpretation by any single person is always different, and this assemblage is no exception. This film uses the themes within its subtext and introduces, and then wildly perverts, the punishments associated with the 7 Deadly Sins. The overall atmosphere is one of uneasiness that, in addition to a fair amount of disturbing visuals, is amplified by its pulse-pounding soundtrack.

In a snowy mountain village, a beautiful woman is found dead. The group who found her considered the woman “Yuki Onna”, an in humanly beautiful snow woman ghost, whose eyes can strike terror into mortals who get lost travelling in the snowy mountains. Japanese legend says that the Snow Woman floats across the snow, leaving no footprints. However, the “snow woman” turns out to be alive, and identifies herself as “Yuki”. She then begins a sensual affair with Nyubei, one of the travellers who had tried to saver her, and her erotic climaxes put Yuki in a supernatural-like transcendent state. However, many of the villagers still believe her to be a monster, and they soon lead an attack on the mountain cabin where she’s hiding with Nyubei. Snow Woman is a romantic and erotic triumph of “Pink” filmmaking from the prolific Japanese studio AMG, and Darkside Releasing is very pleased to present this gem from AMG’s erotic catalogue for the first time on Blu-ray in North America!
