    The only Adamson film I've seen is Nurse Sherri and the only reason I own a copy on Blu is because of nostalgia (I saw it as a double feature on 42nd Street back in the day). It's a terrible film and terribly amateurish. I suspect most of his filmography is about the same quality or worse lol. This set is strictly for junk aficionados. Well, looks like Severin will be saving me some money this year. I haven't bought anything from them since November. Somebody wake me when they resume their Italo splatter kick.

Shock! Pop! calls “a fascinating achievement in filmmaking, and one that remains timeless more than 30 years after its creation.”

    This will likely be my first and only Severin Kids purchase. Skipped the Twilight Time release but that won't happen here.

    A year before they stunned the genre with ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK, director Sergio Martino, co-writer Ernesto Gastaldi, and stars Edwige Fenech & George Hilton made their collaborative giallo debut with this “incredible piece of cinema” (Flickering Myth) that is “every bit as thrilling as Argento’s best” (Goomba Stomp): Fenech “at her most luminous” (Digitally Obsessed) stars as an unfaithful diplomat’s wife who finds herself hunted by a razor-wielding sex maniac while simultaneously haunted by her own depraved desires. Alberto de Mendoza (HORROR EXPRESS), Cristina Airoldi (TORSO) and Ivan Rassimov (EATEN ALIVE!) co-star in the “daring shocker that set the pace for years to come” (Mondo Digital) – also known as BLADE OF THE RIPPER and NEXT! – newly scanned in 4k from the internegative and loaded with new & archival Special Features.

    Produced in 1960 as BODY IN THE WEB, it became a notorious Adults Only feature throughout Europe (though banned in the UK). Three years later and sheared of its nudity, it was repackaged for American audiences as a brain-melting monster movie filled with stripper catfights, skimpy lingerie and radioactive arachnids. Alexander D’Arcy – whose Hollywood career ranged from Leo McCarey’s THE AWFUL TRUTH to Al Adamson’s BLOOD OF DRACULA’S CASTLE – and ‘The German Jayne Mansfield’ Barbara Valentin (BERLIN ALEXANDERPLATZ) star in “the ultimate exploitation movie” (PsychotronicReview.com), produced by Wolf C. Hartwig of BLOODY MOON and SCHOOLGIRL REPORT infamy. Severin Films is proud to present both the complete uncensored version – scanned from the Düsseldorf dupe negative – as well as the alternate U.S. release – scanned from a pristine low con print – now together for the first time.

    Special Features:
    • Alternate US Release Version: IT’S HOT IN PARADISE
    • The History of Spider Island With Prof. Dr. Marcus Stiglegger
    • Audio Interview with Actor Alexander D’Arcy by Horror Historian David Del Valle
    • Alternate Clothed Scenes
    • Trailer
    • Revisable Artwork
    • Comic Book [WEBSTORE EXCLUSIVE]

    In 1980, Indonesian exploitation studio Rapi Films and writer/director Sisworo Gautama Putra (PRIMITIVES, THE WARRIOR) unleashed the singular chiller that rocked the Muslim nation, transformed the country’s genre film industry, and remains one of the most influential shockers in Asian horror history: While mourning the death of his mother, a troubled teen discovers a nightmare world of restless spirits, supernatural vengeance and occult terror with “an intense creepiness that stands the test of time” (The Jakarta Post). Ruth Pelupessy (THE SNAKE QUEEN) and W.D. Mochtar (MYSTICS IN BALI) star in this “classic from the Golden Age of Indonesian horror” (Monster!) – whose 2017 Joko Anwar remake became an international festival favorite and one of Indonesia’s biggest hits ever – now scanned from the original negative and packed with all-new Special Features.
    Special Features:

    • Satan’s Box Office: Interview with Producer Gope T. Samtani
    • Indonesian Atmosphere: Interview with Screenwriter Imam Tantowi
    • Satan’s Slave Obsession: Audio Interview with Remake Director Joko Anwar
