Joe D’Amato – L’Alcova AKA The Alcove (1984) (DVD)

29f7c043f76a2bde437fd0d52a185152

Written by Thomas Simmons (IMDB)

An English soldier (Cliver) returns home from the Zulu war with the daughter of a tribal king (Gemser) as his slave (a gift that he was given for “saving” the kings life). The spoils of war, ya know? While he’s been gone, his wife has been having an affair with the female housekeeper (Belle). Not at all pleased with being a slave, the Ebony princess notices the mistress of the house engaging in a quick bit of foreplay with the housekeeper and plots her revenge starting with the seduction of the mistress. Jealousy spreads like wildfire and before you know it, she has turned the household into a lustful frenzy of sex and hatred. I can’t give away too much more or it would ruin the story, but there are plenty of little twists along the way. Speaking of twists, this film is actually far more twisted than it sounds. One of the more disturbing moments being a sequence about the filming of an inquisition-themed porno that turns into the sadistic rape of a lesbian / virgin by the filthy and none too bright gardener. Sporting tons of full-frontal nudity, simulated lesbian and straight sex and some hard-core (as seen in an old stag film), this has the sleazy goods to go along with the D.H. Lawrence-ish setting and atmosphere, and is definitely recommended for fans of such. Read More »

Byron Mabe – The Lustful Turk (1968)

29f7c043f76a2bde437fd0d52a185152

SWV Movie Description:
You really have to give DAVID F. FRIEDMAN credit. Compared to other nudies, his carnal costume epics stand out like a virgin at a sex club. In 1968, The Lustful Turk was the most expensive adult feature film ever made.

Hang on to your turbans! Despite the title, this isn’t about New York cabdrivers. The Lustful Turk is a wild and wooly depiction of life in an 18th century harem. It’s the kinky adventures of Emily (ABBE RENTZ), a blue-blooded English lass. She sets sail for India with her comely handmaiden, Eliza (HEIDI KRANE). While at sea, they are girlnapped by knuckle-dragging Algerian pirates. Read More »

Wim van der Linden – Rape (1966)

29f7c043f76a2bde437fd0d52a185152

“This beautiful example of far-fetched blasphemy accompanies a happy, ugly nun into the woods for her constitutional, replete with charming bird noises. Praying to and fondling a priapic mushroom, she is unaware of the evil rapist shadowing her. When the rape occurs, it is in long shot, hidden from view, under a huge tree. Articles of clothes and her cross sail through the air; the tree – entirely dominating the screen – sways rhythmically and repeatedly. A few minutes later it stops; then another tree, a few feet away, begins to sway in identical fashion. The rapist finally emerges, exhausted.”

Marian Dora – Melancholie der Engel AKA The Angels’ Melancholia (2009)

29f7c043f76a2bde437fd0d52a185152

Quote:
Melancholie Der Engel is widely regarded by most extreme horror film fans as the single most extreme film that has ever been created. This film pushes every boundary that has ever been set before in an extreme film. There are scenes in here that will make even the most hardened horror fan cringe.

This film was created in 2009 by the extreme German horror film director, Marian Dora. This director was behind the famous film Cannibal, which caused massive controvery when it was first released. He has done the same thing again with this film. It is shot in much the same fashion using, light and shadow as not only a part of the scene, but almost as a character in itself. Read More »
