September’s UK DVD chart, our fifteenth, and we’re delighted to say that you have really outdone yourselves, and completely buried Augusts’ chart figures six feet under. A wonderful start to our favourite time of year! We’ll reward you with more visual treats as we celebrate Samhain, and the start of the darker half of the year. So, in between all that trick and tweeting, make sure to leave some time for curling up in front of the TV and watching some old school sex and violence…
At number one for the second month is “The Women’s Nature”, an erotic tale of a magic book which causes the people who read it to reenact its tales of lust and debauchery. At number two is our fabulous new release, “My Hero, Chihiro”, the story of a girl getting what she wished for and regretting it. Directed by Mototsugu Watanabe, the man behind pink classics like Sexy Battle Girls and Whore Angels, My Hero, Chihiro is a brilliant mix of OTT comedy, fantasy and sex! So a must-have for Pink Cinema fans!
Another new entry, or rather re-entry, is Ricky Greenwood’s nunsploitation epic, “Confessions of a Sinful Nun” which re-enters at number nine. Centred on Sister Charlotte, played with gusto by AVN cover-girl, Charlotte Stokely, who gets the hots for new arrival Sister Lily, which leads to some of the best nun-on-nun action we’ve seen in ages.
We’re also delighted to see that both of our new Redemption releases, Cosmotropia de Xam’s “Phantasmagoria” and Grant McPhee’s “Night Kaleidoscope” are both still in the chart and selling well. New, alternative filmmakers like these deserve your support and if you haven’t seen these films yet and like Rollin, Franco and the whole Redemption universe then we highly recommend that you check them out!
RedemptionTV.net continues to surprise us and this month is unique in that all five titles are Redemption titles and three are by the same director, Jason Impey, whose family orientated shorts, Exploited, Tormented and Lustful Desires, dominate the charts. Impey makes directs disturbing and provocative films that often have a sprinkling of twisted perversion added to the mix; think elements of Nekromantic mashed with the films of Ian Kerkhof (now Aryan Kaganof).
Equally provocative are our new number two titles, Vince D’Amato’s Brivido Giallo triple-bill featuring Glass, Reversed and Odyssey of the Dead. Available at the special price of just $9.00 these are really worth watching and will stay with you long after viewing while you figure out what it all means.
At number one is the insanely OTT prison drama Amazon Hot Box – imagine Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS mixed with Violence in a Women’s Prison, then relocate to a jungle, add in some voodoo experiments, crazed lesbians and an incredible torture machine and you have one of the best exploitation films we’ve seen in years. If you haven’t watched Amazon Hot Box yet, stream it or buy the DVD immediately!
Finally, our French chart has a brand new number one, 7 Sins, which is made up of seven segments with each sin directed by a different director. Disturbing, perverse and with a pounding soundtrack. At number two is the very excellent Blind Love, a fabulous pink film which centres on a blind girl who falls in love with a ventriloquist but mistakenly ends up dating his assistant. What could possibly go wrong in this seriously sexy comedy?
You can buy the chart DVDs in our online shop or watch them now on RedemptionTV.net
This month’s song to enjoy the charts with is Savior Complex by the remarkable Phoebe Bridgers, who also, as it happens, features on the cover of the latest issue of Wonderland magazine. Our reason for choosing this video though was because its’ star is not Ms Bridgers but rather a long coat Chihuahua which reminded us of our beloved Eddie who died, age 15, last year. For Chihuahuas everywhere this is for you.
