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, join our mailing list, and watch out for the arrival of our new Ghoul Girl label in 2020!! See ghoulgirlfilms.com

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

THE SALVATION EXPLOITATION CHART

Here is our third UK chart for a virus-filled 2020 and, unfortunately, our last that’s able to use sales data from HMV and other UK retailers as they have closed their outlets thanks to Covid-19. That said our sales were surprisingly good in March and only slightly down from January and February, so thank you for that. The Italian sex parody Luna’s Angels has again had a strong month and is back in the top position, while at number two and just missing the coveted top spot by a few sales is Nunsploitation epic Sacred Flesh which continues to be surprisingly popular some twenty years on from its first release.

Our wonderful Japanese titles continue to dominate the charts though with four films: Whore Angels at number three, Maid in Japan at number four, Whore Hospital at number seven and those sexy Harajuku Girls at number eight.

Remember too that you can watch many of these titles now in our new WATCH section here.

This month’s soundtrack to accompany the chart is rather fittingly a Coronavirus inspired take on the Sound of Music, or rather a medley of COVID-19 songs reworked to the tune of Do Re Mi as originally sung by Jullie Andrews accompanied by the von Trapp children with new pandemic lyrics. We think that it’s rather good and recommend singing along.

Based on UK Sales in March 2020

New ENLARGED and EXPANDED WATCH SECTION

2020 has started like a real-life horror film and it looks like being a long drawn out year with most of us being forced to be more antisocial and reclusive than we are normally! To help take your mind off the ghastliness outside we have decided to focus on expanding our watch section and making as many of our films and related material available to view online as possible.
We’ve started by adding Redemption classics Nude for Satan, Black Magic Rites, Grapes of Death, Night of the Hunted, Shiver of the Vampire and Dracula’s Fiancée, plus two excellent Sacrament Pink Cinema classics; Whore Angels and Whore Hospital with many more to follow.
However, because of the impact of Coronavirus on retail business, we are also provisionally putting back our physical releases until May but making them available on our Watch section now. So available now in advance of their physical release are the very naughty Confessions of a Sinful Nun which should cure you of anything, the virus-free Talk Derby to Me and the positively pestilent Japanese Wife Next Door 2!
We will be adding new titles constantly so please keep coming back, coughs and fevers welcome 😷
