The Latest News from The Salvation Group
While Fangoria magazine certainly wasn’t seeking Redemption any more than Jess Franco was looking for Salvation, these two august luminaries of horrordom have come together in a kind of unholy union in Fango’s June issue. Making Jess Franco the cover feature, and, using a still from Female Vampire to illustrate it, is high honour indeed. As is devoting ten or more pages to the great man and commissioning essays on him by Tim Lucas and David Gregory.
To coincide with this great event our US distributors, Kino Lorber, have taken out a full page advertisement to promote our current range of Jess Franco titles and new releases A Virgin Among the Living Dead, The Horrible Dr Orloff and Nightmares Come at Night, as well, of course, as Franco’s classics Exorcism and Female Vampire.
We are very excited to be able to announce that we have signed five films by the renowned and at time extraordinary writer and director, Alain Robbe-Grillet.
Robbe-Grillet who wrote and directed a number of controversial and provocative films in his own confrontational style purposefully avoided structured narrative in order to “show imagination at work”. His films dealt with violence, murder, destruction, sex, love, bondage and so on, in ways that would often force the viewer to find out the films meaning by chance or unexpectedly as the story evolved.
Redemption has signed five superb examples of Robbe-Grillet’s work: Trans-Europe-Express (1967). The Man Who Lies (1968), Eden and After (1970) and Slow Slidings of Pleasure! (1974). Also included as an extra with Eden and After will be the alternate version, N Take the Dice (1971).
The latest issue of the very excellent US based horror and genre magazine, Diabolique, is featuring an indepth interview with Nigel WIngrove, ostensibly about the controversial short film Visions of Ecstasy, but also looking at the Redemption Films label overall, his visual work for publications like The Redeemer, and SkinTwo, as well as the imagery he created for bands like Cradle of Filth.
Issue 16 also features the late, Peter Cushing on the cover and devotes most of the issue to the great man, on what would have been his hundredth birthday.
Three of our top Satanic Sluts, including the girls’ new Kommander, Sophia Disgrace, have been in action filming scenes for Thomas Eikrem’s film ‘Detroit Rising’ starring Jim van Bebber, star and director of Deadbeat at Dawn. Centred on an Iraqi veteran suffering a breakdown in the crumbing environment of Detroit, the scenes featuring members of the Satanic Sluts are part of an explosive and psyched-out dream sequence when Bebber’s character finally begins freaking out on a major scale. More news on the Satanic Sluts and what looks like being one of the BIG film events of 2014 real soon...
Trendy Brits will remember when Redemption first dipped its claws into the murky waters of television a few years ago, well we’re at it again and have teamed up with the über hip people at FilmOn.com to bring you REDEMPTION TV, the coolest thing since death! Resurrected as celluloid crystal meth, only twice as addictive, and screening cinema’s equivalent of vampyric self-harm sleaze, REDEMPTION TV is the visual equivalent of having your eyeballs licked!!
Screening nonstop, worldwide, except currently for contractual reasons, the United States and Canada, REDEMPTION TV will be screening a salacious mix of nuns, vampires, zombies, nymphos and ultra hot Japanese bad girls obsessed with SM, nursing, lesbianism and lactation! No channel known to mankind could devise such wickedness, yet REDEMPTION TV, through our sources in the netherworld, has been able to put together a veritable witches brew of sleaze epics, which if viewed nonstop may effect your ability to behave rationally.
REDEMPTION TV will be a subscription channel, where for the monthly sum of just $4.00, you can get to watch SM Hunter and Nude for Satan on your smart phone, curl up on the sofa with Grapes of Death on your laptop, and then watch Sexy Battle Girls in bed on your ipad. Launching within the next couple of months REDEMPTION TV will be hotter that a Cheryl Cole / Beyonce sex tape, well maybe not, but close and so cool it’ll freeze your blood!
Much, much more on REDEMPTION TV soon!!
Coming to Blu-ray and DVD from Redemption this summer are two classic Franco films; A Virgin Among the Living Dead (1971) with Alice Arno, and the fabulous and much overlooked, Nightmares Come at Night (1970) starring Franco’s beautiful and tragic first muse, Soledad Miranda. Both films have been remastered into HD from the original materials and have never looked better. More details on the release dates, extras and content coming very soon.
Shake your hips to the sounds of French hipsters, ACANTHUS, whose groovy rhythms wow on the fab soundtrack to Jean Rollin’s classic Shiver of the Vampires. We now have 10 copies of the almost sold out vinyl LP, and when they’re gone, they’re gone!
Also in stock, though we suspect not for long, are the über rare and separate 10” vinyl releases of Requiem for a Vampire with a score by Pierre Raph, and Fascination with a score by Philippe D’Aram. We also have a CD release which comprises both soundtracks.
