WELCOME TO SALVATION FILMS

This is the website for Salvation Films and the home of the Redemption, Jezebel and Sacrament film labels as well as the notorious Satanic Sluts

2024 – Resurrection and Revolution

2023, while certainly not an annus horribilis, certainly wasn’t the best year for us here at Salvation; there were too many bumps in the road which made it hard to achieve all of our goals. However, New Year’s offers the chance to begin again and we really hope that 2024 will see Salvation rise to new lows of depravity and vice; and to that end here is a brief overview and outline of our plans and releases for 2024.

Salvation Films

Firstly, our much heralded US range has finally started with the first three titles now available to buy. They are S&M Hunter Begins, Sexy S.W.A.T. Team and Far from the Apple Tree.  Followed shortly by Phantasmagoria, Uncle’s Paradise and Nude for Satan.

Still in the US, several of our Jean Rollin titles have been licensed to Shudder, so expect Rollin’s unique take on the vampire to reach more of the uninitiated over the coming months.

Speaking of Rollin, our licensing deal with Indicator is seeing many of the titles in our catalogue remastered in 4K, which, over time, will include all of the Jean Rollin films, including obscurities like Killing Car, The Sidewalks of Bangkok and, amazingly, La Comtesse IXE in all its hardcore glory; something we would have deemed nigh impossible a few years ago!

In the UK we have a truly incredible mix of Pinku, porn, exploitation, sleaze and horror lined up for 2024, including Mask, the Kekko Reborn, Prison Heat, Bloodlust, The Woman Who Sells Pro-biotic Drinks, Nipples, Space Necronomicon, Black Mass of the Brain, Snow Woman, Silence of the Sushi Rolls and many, many more.

Streaming

Our worldwide streaming site, RedemptionTV.net will soon be introducing subscriptions. So in addition to the wealth of filmic material already available to stream and the new titles we add each weekend, we will start to premiere our own newly produced material as well. The first of these productions is very, very nuncentric, and features numerous young women being sacrilegious and disgraceful in ways all Redemption fans will love.

RedemptionTV.net will also be joined by her wicked digital sister in the form of PurgatoryTV.net, our brand-new curated adult channel that will be featuring some of the darkest, gothest, and naughtiest material from around the world including Japan, Europe, and the US, as well as a few offerings from some of the baddest girls in the UK. More PurgatoryTV.net news soon…

Magazine

Salvation Magazine 03/2024 Argento Cover
Salvation Magazine 03/2024 - Wednesday Cover

Encapsulating all of our cultural doings and likes is, of course, SALVATION, our newspaper-format magazine, which despite its somewhat erratic publication schedule, is now in production on its third and fourth issues, as well as its long outstanding special ‘Redemption’ issue 1.5; all of which will be published shortly.

We have some really exciting and innovative things being prepared for SALVATION ensuring that over time this limited publication will become a real collectors’ item.

To further grow the SALVATION magazine brand, we will very shortly be launching Salvationmag.com, a site specific to our publication which will feature related news and media every day. Expect an official announcement when the site goes live across social media later in the year

The Salvation Exploitation Chart

Based On Sales And Streaming In April 2024

Salvation Films

April’s showers must have kept a lot of you indoors as both our physical and streaming charts had a lot of activity last month, with several re-entries to the Salvation Exploitation Chart, and streams that were as eclectic and unpredictable as ever over one Redemption TV.

We’ll start with physical media and our main Salvation charts which see Dana Vespoli’s Borstal Bitches shooting up six spaces to reclaim the number one spot yet again! Borstal Bitches had previously been number one for six months, a record for us, and was finally toppled last month… now it’s straight back in the top spot.

Vespoli’s film is centred on a politician’s wayward daughter, Harley, who is sent to Saint Judith’s Borstal for young women as punishment for crashing her car while drunk. If you’re wondering what all the fuss is about it’s because of all the disciplining delivered by the sadistic Mona (Mona Wells) and her team of ‘instructors’. Featuring lashing of lesbian sex and quite a lot of spanking, this torrid tale of tanned bottoms and coercive sex is proving to be a massive hit with Salvation fans. Expect to see more films like this very soon.

Up two places and back at number 2 is another Salvation favourite, Ricky Greenwood’s nunsploitation epic, Confessions of a Sinful Nun 2 – The Rise of Sister Mona, which also stars the gorgeous Charlotte Stokely, who is featured in an exclusive interview in our soon-to-be-published third issue of SALVATION magazine.

Number 3 is Becoming Elsa, Ricky Greenwood’s coming-of-age story in which the breathtakingly gorgeous Elsa Jean arrives in Los Angeles seeking a place to be her true self. She finds it between the legs of her landlady and her two roommates, the result is a mix of graphic sex and emotional tenderness unusual in adult content.

At number 4 is a real surprise re-entry, the mischievously titled Milk the Maid which is, despite its name, not a film about a lactating maid, but rather a Pink film centred on a woman called ‘Milk’. Directed by Mototsugu Watanabe and starring the curvaceous adult actress Tia Bejean as Milk, who is befriended by a family when found wandering in the street. At first, they think she is a lunatic when she claims to be a ‘baby angel’ who must perform good deeds to get her wings. This being a Pinku title the deeds Milk performs are sexual and performed with gusto!

At number 5 is Yukio Kitazuwa’s madcap sci-fi tale Deep Contact which shows a comet on a collision course with Earth. A group of scientists working on ways to save mankind develop a special psychic power called Sexual Psychokinesis, which is powered by a man and a woman with psychic powers, and unleashed when they have sex. Can they save Earth from Armageddon? Watch it and find out!

Up four spaces from number 10 to number 6 is Luna’s Angels, starring our favourite Italian babes Roberta Gemma and Luna Stern in a Charlie’s Angels parody whereby the girls get to save the world from a nuclear disaster. Number 7 is Confessions of a Sinful Nun, the first of Ricky Greenwood’s nunsploitation epics, still in the chart despite being knocked down from the top slot, you can’t keep a good nun down! Or a bad one…

Number 8 is Twilight Dinner, a rare Pinku title that mixes eroticism and horror, and features some incredibly bloody sequences mixed with strong sex scenes; a combination that has made this film incredibly successful.

At number 9 and 10 are two re-entries, A Lonely Cow Weeps at Dawn, Daisuke Gotô’s touching story of a young widow, Noriko, who lives with her senile father-in-law on a farm. He believes that his favourite cow, which has recently died, is still alive. To save him from upset Noriko pretends to be the cow and lets him milk her every day, an arrangement she begins to enjoy… And finally, The Specialist which stars the curvaceous Roberta Gemma (Diary of a Secretary, The Order, Luna’s Angels) in a race against time to obtain a secret formula and willing to do anything to get it.

RedemptionTV.net

RedemptionTV.net has lured in several new acolytes recently with our recent stylish new horror additions; and April’s streams have really taken off. François Gaillard’s 13 Notes in Red is deservedly at number 1 for the second month in a row, an unheard-of feat in our digital chart, so well done to François! While at number 2 is Mourning Wife, Daisuke Gotô’s retelling of the classic film noir, The Postman Always Rings Twice. A married woman, tasked with running her handicapped husband’s failing printing business, meets a drifter and they fall in love. Soon a plan to murder the husband is put into motion and the forces of fate begin to show their hand. A great film with some fantastic performances and great sex which explains why it is so popular!

Number 3 unsurprisingly is the uncut version of Confessions of a Sinful Nun 2 which means you get to see our favourite hot nuns only much, much, more so. Number 4 is Play Dead, another Pinku title, this time directed by Tetsuya Taketodo… A classic Pinku comedy of errors, focused on a clog-maker who is in debt to the village elder. To save their love life from the stress of debt, and his wife from the handsy elder, they devise a plan to fake her death. Chaos, ghosts, and a lot of necrophiliac groping ensue.

Finally at number 5 is Larissa Anzoategu’s Helldose – a Brazillian horror anthology of devilish deliciousness featuring six drinks, six flavours, and six diabolical tales. Enjoy.

See you all next month for our next round-up of your favourite titles.

Don’t Forget You can buy the chart DVDs in our online shop, watch them now on RedemptionTV.net or read about them and everything else in our new magazine, SALVATION, which you can read for free or buy here

This month’s Track To Enjoy the Chart To is Good Luck, Babe! a song about a sexually explicit love affair by the very OTT and ‘campy’ American singer-songwriter, Chappell Roan. Roan makes gloriously happy pop music and has just released her first album The Rise and Fall Of A Midwest Princess. She is currently on tour with Olivia Rodrigo.

Redemption

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 and join our mailing list.

Jean Rollin

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
