Apocalipsis Sexual (Carlos Aured, 1982)
« on: 07 Nov 2010 - 15:57 »

A right motley bunch of ne'er-do-wells kidnap the daughter of a wealthy businessman.  They subject her to all manner of sexual humiliations, some of which involve pool cues and switchblades and are positively jaw-dropping.  After enduring and then enjoying the sexual shenanigans the victim develops a Stockholm Syndrome type infatuation with the chief male protagonist.  Despite the kidnapping and the collection of the ransom all going rather smoothly, petty jealousies within the group cause it to implode in a grand finale of mass kinky sex and violence.  Believe you me, I'm not joking.

An extremely sleazy film featuring euro-cult exploitation regular Ajita Wilson and a rare outing in a non-Franco film for his wife, Lina Romay, who looks pretty good in this picture.  In fact, all the female co-stars are pretty easy on the eye, which even without the sex and violence, would still make this film still quite diverting. 

Meanwhile, the men meanwhile also expose their chests in that classic 70s/80s macho continental style with optional medallion accessory.  No evidence of waxing here, if you've got it you may as well flaunt it.  Also, present is a lively enjoyable soundtrack including plenty of funky guitar and brass for the bump and grind scenes which make up the bulk of the film.

Obviously, the film has been shot in a hurry on a shoestring budget but has been made with some skill, is reasonably well acted, and contains enough instances of fairly erotic softcore sex, unattractive hairy nutsack style hardcore kinky sex along with enough gore and violence to keep even the most jaded exploitation film fan more than happy.

There appears to be three versions in current circulation:
There is a Spanish DVD version (non-anamorphic widescreen, spanish audio, no subs) with softcore sex replacing the numerous hardcore scenes in the 'stronger' edit, including the most notorious shots, and with more dialogue.  This running time for this is 1hr 14 mins 19secs.

A full screen Italian VHS of a poor, faded and scratchy print containing the hardcore scenes and the notorious shots of graphic insertion of various interesting objects in certain female orifices.  Most of the longer dialogue scenes present in the Spanish disc have been removed here.  The running time for this is 1hr 08mins 00 secs.

A widescreen Italian VHS of very poor quality, much worse than the full-screen print.  The running time for this is 1hr 08mins 01secs

Hopefully, someone like Severin or one of the specialist European DVD companies will eventually release the full-length complete version.  So, in the meantime, I've made a composite version by inserting the hardcore scenes from the full screen Italian VHS rip into the Spanish DVD and replacing some of the alternate Spanish softcore sequences.  The running time for this is 1hr 39mins 05secs.

Supposedly, there's also an english subtitled VSOM composite of the two versions that exists but I dread to think what the quality of this will be like.  No doubt piss-poor judging by most VSOMs offerings.

In my view, a must see for the Euro Cult aficionado.

Thanks for the interesting details.

What ever happened to Carlos Aured? He made arguably three of Paul Naschy's best horror films (not seen the Mummy film) then just disappeared off the scene. Do we know if he was even behind this film, or is it perhaps a Franco film under another name? (Considering the presence of Ms Romay).

I have two releases of this one: the Spanish VHS (82m02s) and the Spanish DVD (82m02s).

Would love a copy of the hardcore version - can anyone help?

Ajita's hardcore outings tend to be quite interesting and this one sounds like a lot of fun!

I don't think Franco had anything to do with this one but Italian sleaze director Sergio Bergonzelli is supposed to have co-directed. I don't know what his involvement consists of but I'm guessing he might have been in charge of the hardcore footage. Does anyone know for sure?

There seems to have been various toings and froings in forum discussions as to who really directed this film, Carlos Audred or Sergio Bergonzelli.  The apparent confusion appears to stem from some unintentional misinformation on Bergonzelli's part.  See here, http://cinemadrome.yuku.com/topic/967.

"Bergonzelli had nothing to do with it. The confusion stems from a misstatement on his part. He once misquoted the title of the film he said he had shot in Spain. He also said he played a doctor in the film, but there's no doctor in the film. He really meant PASIONES DESENFRENADAS, which he shot in the "beach" of Madrid. (Yes, they have an artificial beach there). The hardcore scenes, imposed by the Italian distributors, were done by Aured himself with just one guy doubling up for most of the male cast members."

That's correct,he does play a doctor in PASIONES DESENFRENADAS.
It's Italian title is LA MOGLIE SUPERGOLOSA.

 I've got a copy of the hardcore Italian version on video, also a DVDr of 2 versions of the film , h/c + soft I think from memory
 the soft ones dubbed in English..on the same disc is a copy of Francos "2 female spys in flowered panties" . Its a horrible film
 I suppose its quite a sight to see a transexual after the op having a switchblade inserted up her , and Lina Romay is like a
 nympho out of control.. poor old Carlos Aured , never a great director but I do love "Horror rises from the tomb", he must of
 been in his sixties when making this . I dread to think of somebody having a wank over this one , from badly lit blow jobs to
 knives up the fanny...

 I would like to add these words to my post from yesterday, it was wrong of me to adopt a "holier than thou" attitude to the
 film. For many years I've collected the very lowest examples of trash culture (of which this is one) to get moralistic when so
 many Eurotrash films feature sexual violence of the same nature is pointless... (just dont watch it with your girlfreind....)
 Theres an interview with Aured in a "Fangoria" from years ago in which he admits to making "Apoc.Sexual" maybe check out
 their database for details. Oh yeah and
           A VERY HAPPY AND PEACEFUL YEAR TO EVERYONE.
