Kommt im Ami Land von Mondo Macabro unter dem Titel Bloodlust
SURPRISE BLU-RAY ANNOUNCEMENT!
Mondo Macabro are very pleased to announce that we have just acquired the US physical media rights to the 1976 Swiss film BLOODLUST (Mosquito der schänder). Thanks to Film Media, Michael Raso and Paige Davis for making this possible.
For those unfamiliar with the title, BLOODLUST is one of the darkest and most affecting horror movies to come out of 1970s Europe. The film plays like a kind of grown up fairy tale, albeit one that includes bloodsucking, eyeball evisceration and voyeuristic lesbian sex scenes among a host of other activities. The bloodsucker of the film’s title is played by veteran actor Werner Pochath. Although he made a number of horror films, including two with Dario Argento, this was one of his rare leads and it’s a career topping best, especially remarkable in that the character he plays is a deaf mute who has not a single world of dialog.
This will be the world Blu-ray premier of this remarkable - and remarkably strange - film. Watch this space for more details.
