The most profane Nunsploitation: DARK WATERS and THE OTHER HELL
Resurrected On Blu-Ray from Severin Films on April 11th.
Just in time to cast a long, dark shadow over the Easter holiday, the heathens from Severin Films have rolled away the stone and allowed the forces of evil to be reborn, so they may spread across the lands of the innocent like an unholy plague. Two of the most soul-ripping, Christ-defying nunsploitation classics will be reborn from the celluloid netherworld, remastered and packed with abhorrent bonus features.
DARK WATERS has been acclaimed as “visually amazing” (Videoscope), “a lost masterpiece of art-house horror” (Filmmaker Magazine), “deeply disturbing” (BBC Radio One), “a must see for serious horror buffs” (Film Review), and compared to the works of Bergman, Bava and Argento. Now experience the modern Nunsploitation masterpiece from co-writer/director Mariano Baino as you’ve never seen or heard it before: When a young Englishwoman attempts to discover her mysterious connection to a remote island convent, she will unlock an unholy communion of torment, blasphemy and graphic demonic depravity. Louise Salter (INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE) stars in this “stunning and horrifying debut” (Digitally Obsessed) – filmed on location along the grim Ukraine coast – now transferred in HD from the original 35mm negative and featuring over 4 hours of startling Special Features.
THE OTHER HELL: At the peak of his ‘80s excess, Italian sleaze maestro Bruno Mattei – using the alias ‘Stefan Oblowsky’ – stunned audiences with THE OTHER HELL, a raging Nunsploitation shocker about a series of brutal murders in a depraved convent. And while his cinematic legacy may remain controversial, Mattei here delivers a surprisingly stylized yet undeniably blasphemous orgy of stabbings, stigmata, Satanism, sexual violence and graphic savagery that ranks among his very best. Franca Stoppi (THE TRUE STORY OF THE NUN OF MONZA), Carlo De Mejo (WOMEN’S PRISON MASSACRE) and Franco Garofalo (HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD) star in this “filthy nugget” (Mondo Digital) – written by the notorious Claudio Fragasso (RATS: NIGHT OF TERROR, TROLL 2) and featuring a score ‘borrowed’ from Goblin – newly transferred from a 35mm print discovered behind a false wall in a Bologna nunnery!
