House of Cruel Dolls [1974]

  • Blu-ray/DVD
  • PRINCIPAL CAST: Magda Mundari, Silvia Solar, Sandra Julien, Olivier Mathot
  • DIRECTOR: Peter Knight
  • SYNOPSIS: The Lost Eurocine Sexploitation Classic! Uncut and Remastered! From the studio that brought you OASIS OF THE LOST GIRLS and ZOMBIE LAKE and the director of THE INVISIBLE DEAD and PANTHER SQUAD comes the ultra-obscure, wildly sleazy shocker HOUSE OF CRUEL DOLLS, perhaps the most messed up movie in the vast Eurocine library! Also released as THE HOUSE OF LOST DOLLS (among many other international titles), Pierre Chevalier’s outrageously vulgar melodrama is a horny hybrid of existing European exploitation films spliced together with new footage to tell the telltale of Yvette (Magda Mundari) who, after being liberated from a life of sex slavery in the titular barbaric bordello, tells her sordid story in flashback. Jack Taylor (Jess Franco’s FEMALE VAMPIRE and SUCCUBUS) also stars as an intrepid secret agent (in footage shoehorned in from the ’60s spy thriller AGENTE SIGMA 3: MISSION GOLDWATHER) while sexploitation starlets Silvia Solar (CANNIBAL TERROR) and Sandra Jullien (Jean Rollin’s SHIVER OF THE VAMPIRES) also show up to the patchwork party. Filled to the freak-out point with nudity, violence and all-around bad behavior, HOUSE OF CRUEL DOLLS is one of the most shameless, mind-melting films ever assembled, available now from Full Moon for the first time in North America, fully uncut and remastered from the original negative. Come and hang out with the cruel dolls…you’ll never be the same again! Bonus features include: Trailers

When three inner city kids are murdered in a gangland showdown gone wrong, a mysterious witch doctor opts to drag them back from the grave. Well, most of them anyway! The voodoo priest leaves the boys’ bodies and only reanimates their heads. Now, this trio of floating craniums are left to fly around New York with only one thing on their minds: revenge! Elfman fills the screen with his patented blend of absurdity, grand guignol effects, dark humor and surreal insanity and gives the beautiful Meg Foster (THEY LIVE, LORDS OF SALEM) one of her wildest roles, that of lesbian crime kingpin Big Moe. Powered by original music from Elfman’s brother, the award winning composer Danny Elfman (BATMAN, THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, BEETLEJUICE), a delirious score by the great Richard Band (RE-ANIMATOR, PUPPET MASTER) and slick cinematography by Stephen McNutt (BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, THE DEAD ZONE), SHRUNKEN HEADS is one the weirdest and coolest Full Moon classics ever! Get ready to flip your lid and lose your mind! Bonus features include: Main title music by Danny Elfman., Behind the scenes featurette.

Sexorcist’s Devil (1974) – When reporter Janice Lighting (Carolyn Brandt) follows up a hot lead on a mysterious document that can summon the devil, she brings death to her own door in this bloody horror-adult film hybrid featuring possessed prostitutes, creepy amulets, and even creepier artwork. Also known as The Sexorcist. Fire Down Below (1974) – Available for the first time to home media! A recently released mental patient escalates from peeping to sadistic sexual murders in this gritty grindhouse shocker filled with seedy peep shows and even seedier characters. Also known as Perverted Passions. Debbie Truelove Strikes Back (1982) – Available for the first time to home media! Native American adult actor Debbie Truelove stars as Debbie Truelove, a beautiful free spirit and roller-skating babe who rolls around Las Vegas to hang with friends and check out as much sex as possible. A possible sequel to Debbie Does Las Vegas, Debbie Truelove Strikes Back is a snapshot of early ’80s Vegas. Best known for his cult films The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed Up Zombies (1964) and Rat Pfink a Boo Boo (1966), micro-budget auteur Ray Dennis Steckler’s over 40-year career spanned cult, erotic and hard-core adult film genres. His liberal use of voice-overs and notorious combinations of horror, crime, and sex begged comparisons to Ed Wood in films such as Sexorcist Devil, Perverted Passions and Debbie Truelove Strikes Back.
