If Needs Must the Devil Drives…
Exploiting cult sex and horror since 1993!
Redemption was the first film label in the world to see the commercial potential in releasing European exploitation films at a time when euro horror was dismissed and ignored by most critics and the wider film community. Redemption launched, in 1993, by championing the works of Jean Rollin, Jess Franco, Dario Argento, Massimo Dallamano, Bruno Mattei and many, many others. Films like Succubus, Requiem for a Vampire, Deep Red, Venus in Furs, What Have You Done to Solange?, Virgin Witch, and Vampyros Lesbos have all been released by Redemption, though often only after costly battles with the UK censors with whom Redemption has had a difficult history.To help raise awareness of these films, and to grow the Redemption brand, Salvation created a number of related publications and side projects, including The Redeemer magazine and the Nihilista newspaper, nightclub Black Mass, and the online group the Satanic Sluts, an all girl collective, whose live shows, which often mixed gore, sex and outrageous antics, saw them mentioned in the House of Commons and the Black Mass club, at which they performed, banned from three venues in three months!
Now, some 23 years later, Redemption continues to break boundaries, champion new films and hatch new ideas. So please keep checking out this site, join our mailing list, and watch out for the arrival of our new Ghoul Girl label in 2020!! See ghoulgirlfilms.com
EXHIBITION – REDEMPTION REVISITED
A selection of 100 images created in and around Redemption and Salvation Films between 1992 and 2014
The Man Who Bought The Vampire To Life
Welcome to Salvation Films’ new dedicated new Jean Rollin section where, over time, we hope to have everything about Rollin; past, present and future covered. We will of course include information on all of our releases, or licensed releases, and related releases like soundtracks or books.
Redemption’s relationship with the films of Jean Rollin and with Rollin himself goes back to 1992 and the very beginning of Redemption when we started out as a company that would specialise in releasing European horror and exploitation films at a time when no one else was. At this time Rollin was virtually unknown and his work dismissed by most critics who had, watched his films, as both nonsense and nonsensical
THE SALVATION EXPLOITATION CHART
Here is our second UK chart of a virus-filled 2020 and our Japanese Pink titles continue to dominate with Chise Matoba’s medical romp Whore Hospital moving up to grab the number one position, while the fetishistic Naughty Harajuku Girls takes the number two slot. Other noticeable Japanese chart movers are Milk the Maid, Naked Desire and Whore Angels all of which have sold strongly this month. Redemption is represented by the Jess Franco’s sleaze epic The Marquis de Sade’s Justine and the classic Nunsploitation title The Sinful Nuns of Saint Valentine.
This month’s soundtrack to accompany the chart is ‘I Can’t Be That Easy’ from the forthcoming debut album ‘Can’t Make You Love Me’ by the Australian singer Gena Rose Bruce, released on the Dot Dash record label late March 2020. We’ve been playing the album in Redemption’s offices for the last week and we definitely recommend it, particularly if you like sultry, quirky and haunting singers with just the merest hint of Stevie Nicks. Shiver.
