PAPAYA: LOVE GODDESS OF THE CANNIBALS:
“SIRPA LANE INSPIRES MEN
TO THE DEPTHS OF DEPRAVITY!”
Her name was Sirpa Lane, the succulent Finnish beauty who became an international sex symbol in Roger Vadim’s Charlotte, then shocked the world with her inhuman degradation in Walerian Borowczyk’s The Beast. But perhaps her ultimate cinematic destiny was to star in this tropical sleaze-fest from the notorious Joe D’Amato – director of Emanuelle And The White Slave Trade and Anthropophagus – as a woman who hungrily surrenders to perverse trysts, native vengeance, graphic carnal carnage and beyond. Severin Films is shamelessly proud to present Papaya fully restored – including the complete Disco Cannibal Blood Orgy sequence – from an Italian vault print seized from the private collection of a jailed magistrate!
“A Catalogue Of Perversions Such As
Voyeurism, Rape, Cannibalism And
A Euro Soundtrack That’s An Absolute Blast!”
SEX GORE MUTANTS
Even by the sleaziest standards of ‘80s EuroTrash, it remains a film that must be seen to be believed: When a pair of criminal knuckleheads and their busty moll kidnap the young daughter of a wealthy tycoon, they foolishly choose to hide in a local jungle infested with ferocious cannibals. What follows is a mind-roasting exercise in atrocious acting, gratuitous nudity and gut-munching mayhem by a ravenous tribe of flesh eaters who inexplicably sport comb-overs and Elvis sideburns. Robert Foster (Inconfessable Orgies Of Emmanuelle), Pamela Stanford (White Cannibal Queen) and Burt Altman (The Devil Hunter) star in this infamous Spanish/French co-production that was banned in Britain as one of the original ‘Video Nasties’ and is now presented uncut, uncensored and mastered in Hi-Def.
A Film Than Manages To Tap Into Race Exploitation,
Sex Exploitation, Cannibal Exploitation And Shock Exploitation!”
BLACK HORROR MOVIES
King Of EuroSleaze Jess Franco (Bloody Moon, Macumba Sexual) takes on the ‘80s Cannibal genre and delivers a jungle sickie like no other! When a safari of sexy babes and violent boneheads ventures into native-crazed wilderness, Uncle Jess unleashes a deluge of relentless nudity, dubious anthropology and his own brand of cut-rate carnage. Ursula Fellner (Sadomania), Al Cliver (Zombie), Robert Foster (Cannibal Terror) and Gisela Hahn (Contamination) co-star in this original ‘Video Nasty’ – also tastefully known as Sexo Cannibal and Mandingo Manhunter – with something to offend everyone, now fully restored from the original Spanish negative and presented uncut and uncensored.
