THE ITALIAN GOTHIC GENRE EMBRACED THEMES OF VIOLENCE, MADNESS AND SENSUALITY… WITH THESE 4 FILMS, THOSE IMPULSES DARE TO GO EVEN DEEPER!

In a genre known for its castles, crypts and candelabras, Italian Gothic also embraced themes of violence, madness and sexual deviance. With these 4 films, those impulses dare to go even deeper.

In 1964's THE MONSTER OF THE OPERA, director Renato Polselli and screenwriter Ernesto Gastaldi craft a surreal erotic shocker set within a contemporary dance troupe. Perhaps the genre's rarest film, the berserk supernatural narrative of 1965's THE SEVENTH GRAVE also makes it among the strangest. For 1970's SCREAM OF THE DEMON LOVER, director José Luis Merino gathers classic traditions, then strips them naked and ties them to a torture rack. And 1971's LADY FRANKENSTEIN delivers iconic EuroCult talent on both sides of the camera for one of the most luridly entertaining shockers of the decade. The films in this collection are now fully restored from their original negatives, with 12+ collective hours of Special Features.
