Tell me this doesn't make you want to pick up: Black Emanuelle's Box Volume 2 (http://mondo-esoterica.net/boxsets/Black%20Emanuelle%20Box%202.html). It is crying out for your Christmas Money. Another great set from Severin, and two rather enjoyable and sexy films (and a third that is interesting, if rather less effective).

Post by: Gary B. on 23 Dec 2007 - 01:28
I got mine a while back, but have only watched 'Emanuelle and the white slave trade' which I really enjoyed.  the bonus soundtrack CD is great, too.  I've been getting pretty much all of the Severin releases as they come out and have been impressed with all of them.
Title: Re: Severin (USA)
Post by: MarcMorris on 23 Dec 2007 - 18:47
I designed the CD inlay cards for both sets ;)

There are going to be some great new titles coming from Severin in 2008.
Title: Re: Severin (USA)
Post by: Bogan The Wanderer on 24 Dec 2007 - 00:13
Any more Jess Franco?  Severin are the new Blue Underground, it seems.  I need to grab all the older Severin titles I've missed.
Title: Re: Severin (USA)
Post by: MarcMorris on 24 Dec 2007 - 09:14
Well Blue Underground and Severin are two different companies. Blue Underground are still relasing some very nice titles. I just received from them:

EUGENIE
You'll all be very pleased to hear that EUGENIE (on screen title EUGENIA) features both the original French track (with optional English subtitles) plus the English dub.

Run time = 90m 41s (as opposed to the Wild East version which was a PAL conversion with a run time of 86m 50s). Ratio is anamorphic 1.66:1 and has been transferred from the negatives - it's never looked this good. It really does look incredible.

Extras:
- Franco de Sade - interview with Writer/Director Jess Franco (20 mins)
- Theatrical Trailer (Murder! But more than murder. Incest! But more than incest...)

An essential must buy!


CECILIA
Just had a quick look at CECILIA. Again this features the original French track with optional English subtitles, as well as an English dub. Ratio is anamorphic 1.66:1. On-screen title is CECILIA, with a Eurocine copyright date of 1982. Direction is credited to Claude Plaut. Run time is 104m 50s - that's a whole lot longer than Aberraciones sexuales de una mujer casada (84m 06s) and my old French VHS of La Proie du Désir (92m 48s)

Extras:

- Sexual Abberations of Cecilia (interview with Director Jess Franco, 17 mins)
- Theatrical Trailer (Cecilia is a woman in love with life. Sensual... provocative. Too provocative perhaps...)

Franco opens his interview with a chuckle and "Cecilia doesn't exist. The title of the film is not CECILIA....

So.. how does CECILIA compares to Aberraciones sexuales de una mujer casada?

EUGENIE

An essential must buy!

I saw Tim Lucas' write up about this DVD the other day and ordered it straight away.
Title: Re: Severin (USA)
Post by: MarcMorris on 24 Dec 2007 - 09:53
I posted news about these two discs last week over at Latarnia:

Latarnia: Eugenie + Cecilia (http://p210.ezboard.com/fthelatarniaforumsfrm6.showMessage?topicID=764.topic)

And I said that I really must get Mondo Erotico back up and running!
Title: Re: Severin (USA)
Post by: magnus on 24 Dec 2007 - 10:53
to me EUGENIE (DE SADE as it used to be known as...) is one of the very best Franco-films, brilliant on all levels and with Paul Müller in one of his best performances ever. Highly recommended for those who haven´t seen it! It is a bit in style with SINNER, hope that one will get a dvd release as well sometime, so that more people get to see it and hopefully the notion of Jess Franco as only a cheap trash-director with a love for the zoomlens finally could be put out of date. (Sure he is that as well, and that´s why i love him!)
CECILIA isn´t as mandatory viewing, but quite fun. I have an old english language copy, taken from god-knows what source, can check the runtime sometime, but to be honest i like it when Franco keeps it short.....
And Marc, nice to see the old Franco-enthiusiasm back up! An updated Mondo Erotico would be a most welcome New Years gift, it´s been an invaluble source for years!!
Title: Re: Severin (USA)
Post by: Bogan The Wanderer on 24 Dec 2007 - 20:42
I'd also like to see Mondo Erotico running again in some manner, even if it's just a space for Marc to post whatever thoughts he likes on current cool titles.  Both those new Franco titles are essential purchases for me, especially EUGENIE.  If Blue Underground or Severin can dig up just a few more quality Franco titles in 2008 with docos from old Jess, I'll be quite happy.

Thanks Marc. I'll certainly get my credit card out for The Sister of Ursula as soon as it's available to pre-order. Looking forward to further announcements as well. "The outrageous, the titillating, the gory, the gialli, and for the lucky few of that particular persuasion, more Franco" certainly sounds promising. Especially the promise of more gialli  ::)
I'm not the biggest Franco fan, but dvds of his films are usually worth picking up for the interviews alone.

Think of Borowczyk's LA BETE/THE BEAST, but set in space. It's as simple as that, really. There are several different edits of the film, of varying degrees of {ahem} 'hardness'.

It's quite a good film. At least, I like it. I'm definitely looking forward to Severin's DVD release.

I'm also looking forward to LA SORELLA DI URSULA, as I've only seen that film via an nth generation videocassette copy.

I agree on all counts.

This is one of the Franco films that I show to 'initiates' into the Franco canon. It's a genuinely beautiful film, with a very strong narrative. Oracle's DVD was fine, a worthy upgrade from the Wild East DVD (which I've kept due to the bonus materials), but I'm very much looking forward to watching this new release from BU.

Beast In Space, The: Unrated Version

“MIND-BOGGLING!”
MISE-EN-SCÈNE CRYPT
The Complete Unrated Director’s Cut For The First Time Ever In America!

In 1975, European sex symbol Sirpa Lane shocked the world with her performance as a maiden defiled by a ferociously aroused animal in the erotic classic THE BEAST. Five years later, the beautiful-but-doomed actress would plummet from arthouse to grindhouse in this insanely unofficial outer space ‘sequel’ packed with rampant sex, cheezy effects, barnyard passions and yet another graphic ravaging by a hugely-endowed man-beast. Marina Hedman (SATAN’S BABY DOLL) and Venantino Venantini (BLACK EMANUELLE) co-star in this jaw-dropping intergalactic epic that combines the immortal ‘80s Italian genres of sleazy sci-fi and depraved sexual saga, now fully restored from the original film lab negative purchased at a Rome bankruptcy auction.

Forthcoming releases from Severin Films May 20:

(http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/2465/9374zo3.jpg)

Before MAD MAX There Was STONE
It triggered Australia’s exploitation explosion, sparked a worldwide censorship battle, and remains one of the most infamous biker movies in genre history. STONE is the full-throttle saga of an undercover cop (Ken Shorter) who infiltrates the outlaw Grave Diggers (led by producer/director/co-writer Sandy Harbutt) on a one-way trip to hell with vengeance in their hearts, violence on their minds, and 150 horsepower of screaming steel between their legs. Helen Morse (PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK), Bill Hunter (THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT), members of the Sydney Hells Angels, and Hugh Keays-Byrne, Roger Ward, Vincent Gil and Reg Evans of MAD MAX fame co-star in the ultimate down-under cult classic, now fully restored from original vault elements.

(http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/2092/9375vs2.jpg)

“Whatever THE DIRTY DOZEN did,” screamed the ads, “they do it dirtier!” INGLORIOUS BASTARDS is more than just the inspiration for Quentin Tarantino’s long-rumored next movie; this 1978 international smash remains perhaps the biggest and most badass war movie in EuroCult history! Exploitation legends Fred ‘The Hammer’ Williamson and Bo (WALKING TALL, KILL BILL) Svenson star as the leaders of a gang of condemned criminals who escape from an Allied prison camp with a plan to blast their way to the Swiss border, only to find themselves ‘volunteering’ for a suicide mission deep inside Nazi occupied France. Academy Award® nominee Ian Bannen (FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX, BRAVEHEART) co-stars in this explosive action epic from director Enzo Castellari (STREET LAW, THE BIG RACKET), now fully restored from original vault elements for the first time ever in America!

I presume that Inglorious is one of those titles that will sell more copies than anything else on their list, so good on them for getting the release licence.

Although they perhaps should have plugging Tarantino on the cover to triple sales! Perhaps they could add a peel-off sticker to the cover so avoid offending everyone else who thinks Tarantino is over-rated garbage...

Well one of the 3 discs will be the soundtrack - which has been released before, by Dagored (perhaps this will be a longer release, the Dagored is only 37 minutes long). I like this film but I think I`ll stick with the Koch disc.

I would be happy if they put that and CITIZEN out. Two wonderful flicks deserving legit releases as far as I'm concerned.

Any Petri film on DVD would be great! 

Recently picked up the Russian R0 NTSC DVD of 10th VICTIM, and sold my OOP R1 NTSC Anchor Bay version online for a tidy little sum.  :-\

Post by: Jonny on 18 May 2008 - 10:13
Just read a post over at Maniacs and DVD aficianado has listed two new DVD releases slated for August...

Sergio Bergonzelli's 'In the Folds of the Flesh' / 'Nelle pieghe della carne' (1970)

and

Franco Prosperi's 'Terror' aka 'The Last House on the Beach' / 'La settima donna' (1978)

Cool news about Bergonzelli's film but I do wonder how they can improve upon the Sazuma release of 'Terror'?

Although the Severin website still lists INGLORIOUS BASTARDS as 5/20/08, it has been pushed back to 7/29/08.  STONE is still isted as 5/20/08 at amazon.com.

My guess is that STONE has also been pushed back, like INGLORIOUS BASTARDS, or delayed.

Well, it doesn't matter how cheap it is it won't make up for the fact that a lot of people will already have the 2 disc edition from Sazuma.

Will the Severin edition include the soundtrack CD like the Sazuma release has?

September 30:

Hairdresser's Husband http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100112/

Nominated For 7 César Awards Including Best Film Best Actor Best Director Best Screenplay
In this acclaimed masterpiece from Oscar® nominated writer/director Patrice Leconte (RIDICULE, THE PERFUME OF YVONNE), legendary French actor Jean Rochefort (MAN ON THE TRAIN) stars as an older man whose childhood sexual obsession with a local hairdresser leads him one day to the shop of beautiful young Mathilde (Anna Galiena from JAMON, JAMON). What follows is a romance of ultimate sensual devotion, where love will walk the line between physical pleasure and eternal desire. Anne-Marie Pisani (DELICATESSEN) co-stars in this uncommon erotic classic that DVD Savant hails as “one of the most remarkable and affecting love stories ever told!”

The Perfume of Yvonne http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110776/

From The Writer/Director Of RIDICULE, MONSIEUR HIRE, THE GIRL ON THE BRIDGE, and THE HAIRDRESSER’S HUSBAND
From Oscar® nominated filmmaker Patrice Leconte comes this story of love, loss and memory that lingers like no other. It is the summer of 1958 in wealthy Lake Geneva, where an enigmatic young Frenchman (Hippolyte Girardot of JUMP TOMORROW and MANON OF THE SPRING) begins an affair with a beautiful starlet (stunning model Sandra Majani) under the watchful eye of her flamboyant elderly mentor (Jean-Pierre Marielle of COUP DE TORCHON and THE DA VINCI CODE). But in a season full of secrets, is truth the most elusive passion of all? Richard Bohringer (THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE & HER LOVER) co-stars in the international hit that DVD Times calls “a spellbindingly erotic slice of nostalgia combining sensuous photography, a brilliant soundtrack and a trio of pitch-perfect performances.”

That would be interesting, but honestly, as much as I love Ray he repeats the same antidotes frequently. I was bumming there wasn't more that was new in the Living Dead... interview.

I sold the Japanese dvd of "Terror" and have the Sazuma. I'll pass.

Should Severin ever gets their hands on Queens of Evil, and ask Jonny & Mark to help, I'd definitely triple dip to land an official copy.

I use axelmusic.com for getting US DVDs in Europe - you can pay in £ or €, shipping is pretty quick, customer service has always been good - I must have spent well over £1000 there in the last couple of years. They have the complete Severin library.

EDIT: Plus, since they ship from Denmark, packages sent anywhere within the EU can avoid customs charges!

Have no idea, mate - it was still showing today's date when I checked DVD Pacific yesterday; I'm getting a little tired of it now, in all honesty. If they'd delayed these releases by three months and stuck to the new date, I wouldn't care, but they just seem to keep rolling the releases back, month in, month out.

As I said on my own forum, I've been helping Severin out with both Bloody Moon and Devil Hunter, and they've learned a lesson here: don't announce titles until they're ready.

To say these two have been a nightmare to restore is something of an understatement. Missing scenes, missing audio, cut negatives, you name it, there's been a problem with it.

I just spoke with Severin and I'll be posting an announcement on their site about these titles later.

They've also been snowed under with laying on launch and birthday parties etc for The Inglorious Bastards too don't forget ;)

Yep! (Kudos to Severin)

I'd rather wait a couple of months and get the most complete versions available (with the French track on the DEVIL HUNTER disc) than a rush job.  :'( 

It's not like most of us don't have enough DVDs, DVD-Rs, VHS or PAL tapes, Books, CD soundtracks, etc., to keep us busy gettin' our EuroCult fix till October 28th.  :-*

Wow, sounds like a lot of work. I do think Severin are far and away the top cult DVD firm of the year and they have certainly put and end to the critics who said that euro-cult on DVD was dead.

In regards to this news posting, at least Severin are happy to let people know what is going on, so many cult DVD firms will simply close the shutters when there are delays like this, so people don't know what is going on (see No Shame and their complete disappearance in the market).

I appreciate all the hard work that goes into their releases, but I'm staying away from the company until films by actors/directors I like are available.

A number of titles from the Black Emanuelle series, as well as Malabimba: The Malicious Whore, are going OOP in the next few weeks, and Severin is selling the remaining of their stock at great prices: the Black Emanuelle boxsets are $19.99, and the individual titles are $9.99.

Unfortunately, they don't ship outside of the US.

If a fellow forum member from the US is willing to help out an European member by picking up a few titles and shipping them to Europe, let me know.  :D

I didn't try to place an order, because their website explicitly says "Sorry, we do not ship internationally.":

Yes, the website seems totally dead. They are probably transferring the domain.

I wouldn't worry. Severin-Films is still active on Twitter and Facebook.

Reporting they have the Shriek Show extras for their BD, sounds like a new scan over 88 Films ( 2K instead of HD scan ).

Severin also has a batch of Franco titles they have yet to announce.
I think they are doing their own transfer for BURIAL GROUND and not using what 88 Films had done.
Title: Re: Severin (USA)
Post by: strangedaysindeed on 06 May 2016 - 17:22
I wonder whether 88's Anthrophagous can be improved upon.  Im guessing Severin's will have the Shriek Show extras. I already have the SS dvd so this is not a reason enough for me to buy it.

Coming in May
https://severin-films.com/shop/blackenstein-bluray/

Two Versions Of The Most Notorious Blaxploitation Shocker Of Them All…

And The Most Insane Backstory Ever.

You may have heard of this infamous Blaxploitation/Horror hybrid, but the real story is even more bizarre:  In 1973, criminal-lawyer-turned-wannabe-monster-movie-mogul Frank R. Saletri wrote and produced this grindhouse hit about a Black soldier mortally wounded in Vietnam transformed into a rampaging monster by an L.A. mad scientist. Almost a decade later, Saletri himself would be murdered gangland-style in a crime that remains debated – and unsolved – to this day. John Hart (TV’s “The Lone Ranger”), ‘40s Hollywood starlet Andrea King (THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS) and even former mob moll/stripper Liz Renay (DESPERATE LIVING) star in this jaw-dropper directed by William A. Levey (THE HAPPY HOOKER GOES TO WASHINGTON), now restored with all-new Special Features that spotlight the entire twisted saga!

Special Features:

Theatrical Release Version (78 Mins.) and Video Release Version (87 Mins.)
Monster Kid: Interview with Writer / Producer Frank R. Saletri’s Sister, June Kirk
Archive News Broadcast On The Murder Of Writer / Producer Frank R. Saletri
Producers / Directors / Actors Ken Osborne And Robert Dix Remember Writer / Producer Frank R. Saletri
Bill Created Blackenstein: Interview With Creature Designer Bill Munns
 Theatrical Trailer
