Marco Ferreri’s The Flesh (1991) on blu-ray from Cult Epics, from a new restoration from the original 35mm elements



The Flesh a.k.a. La Carne is a romantic black comedy about a divorced piano player named Paolo (Sergio Castellitto) who meets and falls in love with a most beauteously busty woman (bombshell Francesca Dellera), who uses her special powers to turn the man into her slave. The film depicts the oftentimes torturous nature of desire and the power of women in a cinematic work where Francesca becomes a symbolic representation of male desire, with her voluptuous figure and sex appeal being intoxicating to Paolo. While he is completely taken by his desire for Francesca, she eventually gets bored with him and decides to leave. Unfortunately for Francesca, Paolo loves her and has no intention of allowing her to go.

Pim de la Parra’s Obsessions (1969) on blu-ray from Cult Epics



The Obscure film OBSESSIONS (aka HOLE IN THE WALL) was directed by Dutch artsploitation auteur Pim de La Parra and co-produced by his longtime collaborator Wim Verstappen (Blue Movie). This gritty psychedelic Hitchcockian mystery, which is notable for being the first Dutch English-language film, starts in a savagely brutal fashion when a bloody painting of Vincent van Gogh falls from a wall and exposes a makeshift peephole that eventually leads to student protagonist Nils Janssen (Dieter Giessler) becoming an unwitting witness to a gruesome sex crime next door. When his young fiancée Marina (Alexandra Stewart of Truffaut's DAY FOR NIGHT), an enterprising journalist, tells him about a report of a murder that she is writing, he naturally wonders if one has to do with the other. This classic exploitation film was the birth of auteur cinema in Holland, and inspired filmmakers such as legendary Dutch filmmaker Paul Verhoeven to make films. Originally released in over 80 countries, the film stayed unreleased in the U.S. (and France) until now. Arguably most notably, the film was co-written by a-then-young Martin Scorsese. Scored by legendary Hitchcock composer Bernard Herrmann (who later scored TAXI DRIVER). Includes new HD Transfer and bonus features.
