The man who gave us the baby-baiting joys of Anthropophagous, who took Black Emanuelle on her most sordid adventures and who made a habit of putting nuns in very un-Christian circumstances would have been 74 today. The hard-to-offend Italian master was not only one of the most prolific filmmakers to ever live but he tried his hand a wide variety of genres. Of course it’s for his unique brand of shocking erotica that he will always be remembered. His work rose above his contemporaries not least because he often shot his own movies with style that was frequently lacking in similar fare coming out of those glory years of Italian exploitation. Severin is enormously proud to have released an abundance of titles by this great man and for those who are unfamiliar with our complete line of dirty D’Amatos we are celebrating this occasion by offering his titles 50% off and our celebrated Black Emanuelle boxsets 30%-off! Happy birthday Joe!
