2022 was an exciting year for Salvation, with some hot new releases. HMV (the UK’s biggest retail outlet for physical media) in particular helped champion our brand, and here is the top ten for the year based on our HMV sales…
Number one was The Specialist starring Roberta Gemma, which shouldn’t have been a surprise as we know how much you all love the curvaceous Roberta, but was completely unexpected nevertheless. If you haven’t seen The Specialist it features Roberta trying to get her hands on a secret formula and she is prepared to do literally anything to get it.
Number two is Twilight Dinner, Yutaka Ikejima’s tale of two beautiful vampire sisters, who seduce their neighbour through sex and leave him with an insatiable appetite for blood. Something you all seem to share. Number three and four are the first two instalments of Ricky Greenwood’s Confessions of a Sinful Nun, a nunsploitation series starring the amazing Charlotte Stokely who, coincidentally, features in a major article in issue three of Salvation magazine.
At number five is the fabulous coming-of-age drama Becoming Elsa, again directed by Ricky Greenwood, in which the ravishingly gorgeous Elsa Jean finds love, friendship and masses of sapphic sex when she arrives in L.A.
Sex also played a big part in numbers six and seven of the top ten. Number six is The Women’s Nature, a supernaturally themed tale of an ancient and perverse book with the power to influence anyone who reads it, and makes them live out its sexual fantasies for real. While number seven is the incredible Girls of Wrestling, which is also amazingly the fourth title in our Top Ten directed by Ricky Greenwood! GoW is a fabulous mash-up of drama, sport, and some of the hottest girl-on-girl you’re ever likely to see!
At number eight is the cult pink film A Lonely Cow Weeps at Dawn, in which a women’s senile father-in-law, who lives on a farm, believes his recently deceased favourite cow is still alive. To humour him she pretends to be the cow and allows him to milk her every day. This is one of our most bizarre, and strangely touching releases, and is well deserving of its place in the top ten.
At nine, is another Roberta Gemma vehicle, Luna’s Angels, in which the ‘angels’ are tasked with stopping terrorists from getting the secrets to build a nuclear bomb. Roberta as usual is prepared to do literally anything to complete her mission.
Finally, at number ten is one of our favourite releases of the year, James Bickert’s utterly OTT women-in-prison epic, Amazon Hot Box, in which a naïve college student ends up in one of the sleaziest all-women prisons ever created. Once inside she is subject to insane amounts of nudity, violence, and gore, and is witness to genital mutilation, throat slashing, shootings, torture, and, of course, nude shower scenes and coercive lesbian sex.
Our UK distribution and new releases should be back on track by February and we will resume our regular monthly charts shortly.
