    Aren't they still talking about a cleaned-up/restored standalone release of House on Dead End Street? Can anyone confirm? If your only interest in the corruption disc is for the egg, you might want to hold off.

    These are only my opinions: Raw Force is cheese (but the best kind and above Troma caliber cheese), so may not be your thing but I think it's a must-own.
    Haven't re-watched Count Drac's Great Love since I first saw it years and years ago but I wasn't a big fan of it then, but if you like Naschy you should at least get some enjoyment out of it.
    Though I have it, I haven't cracked open Corruption of Chris Miller yet but I've heard nothing but good things.
    Watkin's Corruption is pure sleaze, and a cut-above sex film too so it's worth it, especially since it contains LHODES.
    Pretty Peaches is so-so, more of the comedy sex film fluff than the one's you seem to enjoy.
    Confessions of a Peanut Butter Freak is pretty good too, though again more goofy than serious for a sex film.

    Honestly, it's the lurid cover art of Count Dracula that keeps me wanting to see it, and that seldom turns out as planned.
    I'd heard Pretty Peaches is a bit on the nasty side, less comedic than what you just described.
    And PB Freak just seems really out there. I should mention, when it comes to sex films, goofy can be preferable. There's one HK Cat III movie I own where it keeps cutting from the main characters' plot, to a couple of side characters going at it. Except the couple engaged in sex keep getting hurt, so each time they cut back to them, they've taken some "precaution". At one point, they're going at it doggy style and she keeps bashing her head on the headboard, so they next time they cut back to them, she's wearing a football helmet. I nearly lost it laughing. THAT's what I like in my porn.

    It is somewhat, and compared to the sequels which I may have been remembering more of the goofy comedic stuff from, but still a lot lighter than stuff like Miss Aggie, Corruption, etc.

    ^ Based on the "sleaze not cheese" remark and the movies you listed, have you seen any of the following?

    Pets
    Massage Parlor Murders
    The Killing Kind
    Good Luck, Miss Wycoff
    Sweet Sugar


    Of your list, the only ones I've seen are Raw Force (definitely cheese) and Corruption Of Chris Miller, which is engaging but not as sleazy as you might expect. The killer scenes are exceptional but sparse, and if I recall the only nudity is brief male rear from Barry Stokes.

    Obvious choice and one you've surely seen, but just in case, Christmas Evil gets my highest recommendation.

    Luther The Geek is a movie I actively avoided because I expected Troma cheese, but it's much darker and more intense than I expected. It was an independent that Troma only distributed.

    The Undertaker had a fair amount of cheese, but it's worth seeing if you liked Maniac and The Last Horror Film.

    These might not be especially sleazy, but they're great atmospheric regional oddities:
    Dear Dead Delilah
    Mountaintop Motel Massacre

    Wonderful. More films for me to consider.

    Of those you list, the only one I've seen was Massage Parlor Murders (on the late great Exploitation.TV), but Pets has been on my radar. The other three in your first batch of selections I've not even considered, so I'll look those up.

    Any rumors on surprise titles? They drop hints but I couldn’t figure it out.

    The movies VS release are so obscure (to me, at least) that I can't figure out what they are even after they officially announce the titles.

    I got my eyes on Psycho Cop Returns, Blood Harvest, Slaughterhouse, and I think a few more that escape me at the moment. All blind buys.

    Yeah, I think almost all my VS discs have been blind buys. I never got into the super low-budget stuff they do, back in the VHS days. And I'll admit, there's been some major disappointments (Dominique and Lucifer's Women, I'm talking to you). But I really dug Snapshot and some others, and they do such a good job with their releases, it's definitely interesting digging into their catalog.

    I personally would add A Climax Of Blue Power, that's the extremely sleazy Taxi Driver some time before Taxi Driver!

    I do like me some Taxi Driver...

    Not just the movie, but those 70s era NYC-based films in general.

    I see Blue Power has Uschi Digard, who certainly has some abundant....talents.

    So that's on the short list now.

    She's in it literally for like a few seconds from what I recall.

    But, it is definitely a solid "XXX" movie as far as the story goes. I'd also recommend it.

    Oh yes, Blue Power is a good one. I remember watching it mostly in silence with my dad. The explicit scenes were slightly more drawn out than I had anticipated, but I dug the storyline. Dad didn’t complain either.
