    Big news from Severin Films just posted via their Facebook - lots more Franco on the way to Blu-ray from them:

    "Big news for fans of Jess Franco! Check out the trailer for "In the Land of Franco", a multi-part series on the various locations from Franco films hosted by the illustrious Stephen Thrower, author of two volumes on Uncle Jess (Flowers of Perversion, Murderous Passions). This series will be released across our next 5 or 6 Franco releases, and we're announcing the first 2 tomorrow! Keep your eyes on our page for more sapphic trysts and zoom lens indulgence!"

    Severin's first two 2020 Franco Blu-ray titles revealed, arriving February 25th, 2020! Extremely excited for these two as they haven't been available legitly in North America previously (and two I haven't seen yet either)!

    CRIES OF PLEASURE (aka Gemidos de placer) (1983)
    Obscure even by hardcore Jess Franco fan standards, it remains the legendary writer/director’s most daring work of his early ‘80s erotic shocker oeuvre: Inspired by Hitchcock’s ROPE, Franco utilized long takes, minimal edits and his beloved Lina Romay at her most extreme for this de Sade-induced saga of violence, depravity and psychosexual mayhem among the amoral elite. Antonio Mayans (aka Robert Foster of DEVIL HUNTER and HOT NIGHTS OF LINDA), Rocío Freixas (THE SINISTER DR. ORLOFF) and Elisa Vela (aka Jasmina Bell of MANSION OF THE LIVING DEAD) co-star in this fascinating Franco rarity from his Golden Films Internacional period, now featuring a 4k scan from the original negative and all-new Special Features.

    Special Features:

    • In The Land Of Franco Part 1: Stephen Thrower Tours Multiple Franco Locations in Portugal
    • When Donald Met Jess and Lina Part 1: Filmmaker Donald Farmer Interviews the Power Couple in 1993
    • Jess Franco’s Golden Years: Interview with Stephen Thrower, Author of ‘Murderous Passions & Flowers of Perversion – The Delirious Cinema of Jesús Franco’

    NIGHT OF OPEN SEX (aka La noche de los sexos abiertos) (1983)
    During the same period that he was making the certifiably insane INCONFESSABLE ORGIES OF EMMANUELLE, SEXUAL STORY OF O and CRIES OF PLEASURE for Spain’s Golden Films Internacional, Goya Award winner Jess Franco also wrote and directed this delirious hybrid of sexy caper comedy, EuroSpy suspense thriller, hard-boiled erotic noir, and depraved fetish shocker complete with jaw-dropping girl-on-girl violence. Jess’ equally legendary partner/muse Lina Romay – here at her most lusciously uninhibited – stars with Antonio Mayans (CANNIBAL TERROR), Lorna Green (MACUMBA SEXUAL), Albino Graziani (MANSION OF THE LIVING DEAD) and even Jess himself in this “fast-moving and slyly humorous” (El Franconomicon) rarity, now scanned in 4k from the original negative with all-new Special Features.

    Special Features:

    • In The Land Of Franco Part 2: Stephen Thrower Tours Multiple Franco Locations in Portugal
    • When Donald Met Jess and Lina Part 2: Filmmaker Donald Farmer Interviews the Power Couple in 1993
    • The Night of Open Jess: Interview with Stephen Thrower, Author of ‘Murderous Passions & Flowers of Perversion – The Delirious Cinema of Jesús Franco’
    Also available in the Open Pleasure Bundle together for a discounted price, plus the Severin Films Hall of Fame Enamel Pin #12: Lina Romay!

    My German import arrived today and what a beautiful package. It's like a mini hard cover book. I picked up cover E and it is #20 of 50. Very pleased to own this.
