Haven't seen this in a while and decided to order it. Imdb states that the length is 130 minutes while the DVD on Amazon says 125 minutes. Does anyone know if it's been censored? Would be a shame if it was.

I read a review on DVDTalk which listed the dvd as 129min. I didn't find anything about the US rel missing any footage so it's probably uncut.

Cheers K!

I'm just about to order it now. However, another interesting film appeared which may be worth my time. Porcile, English title Pigpen, by Pasolini. Now I have my issues with him but this film seems promising.

Anyone here in a position to comment on it before I send them my cash?

I think lots of Pasolini stuff is cheap in Finland. They should be all with optional swedish subtitles etc. Nice digi-dvd sleeves etc. If you have to pay top$ for anything of his, I may check availability here.. They might be cheap everywhere.

This one is 12 quid plus postage with aint bad. What I wonder is if it's decent enough or a steaming pile of turd. I'm sceptical of Pasolini.

Porcile is an excellent film. One of my favourite films of Pasolini. I was very surprised to see it released some weeks ago on Swedish DVD as "Svinstian". You can also find La Grande Bouffe / Brakfesten on same label.... Njutafilms I think. Worth the money. Recommended distributor of their titles: www.videodrome.nu

I just ordered La Grande Bouffe and Hardcore. You know the Paul Schrader film about George C Scott searching for his missing daughter? I remember it as being very good even if it's near 20 years since I last saw it.

On the subject of Schrader, does anyone know where to find his Mishima flick? It's too expensive on Amazon.

Also looking for more films by Liliana Cavani. I have Nightporter and would like to dig a bit deeper.

The Pasolini stuff can wait till Mikko finds some bargains.

I can always recommend www.videodrome.nu for good prices and hunting down rare titles. Nils has been driving his store and mailorder now for over ten years and remains one of the few cult movie specialists still active in sweden. Both ancient pre-cert / x-rental vhs, tons of rare exploitation & sleaze, Alpha Blue stuff, giallo, arthouse, eurocrime, horror, asian etc.

I saw a rather interesting film on the life of Nietzsche by Cavani, simply entitled "Beyond Good & Evil"...

Some recommendations if you are in for twisted italian stuff are works of Elio Petri, Alberto Cavallone & Sergio Bergonzelli... Another highlight is Amore tossico / Toxic Love from Claudio Caligari... like the italian "Ett anständigt liv". Films of Arrabal are essential...
Recently there was some english subbed DVD releases of Tinto Brass more experimental filmwork, L'urlo (The Howl) and Col cuore in gola (Deadly Sweet), which I really recommend...

Swedish DVD front is looking good. Many good releases last year... for example I never thought I'd see any of Thierry Zenos flicks on proper DVD release... Des morts & Svinet... there is some extreme stuff for certain.

I haven't seen too much lately. Last batch of dvd's I bought were REPULSION (already had UK rel but Criterion's new HD transfer is nice & the cover art is better), RAZORBACK (Aussie rel. w/deleted gore scenes in the extras, double-dip), MESSIAH OF EVIL, TRAPPED, SILENT SCREAM (I remember the trailer when I was a kid of the woman in the cobbed-webbed attic).

Quite a few movies coming this year including EMBODIMENT OF EVIL on Synapse + they will be releasing TWENTY-SEVEN Nikkatsu Roman Pink films over the next few years including "RAPE!"!!! Super-psyched for those.

I'm not much for art films but mildly curious to see ANTICHRIST despite trailer being rather silly along with the hype.

I just watched THE BRAINIAC & will follow it up with PHANTASM.

Trapped (if you mean with Henry Fonda) is a great film... reminds me that Rituals is out now on dvd. Earlier today I watched Alfonso Brescias "Amazons against Supermen" together with my son, we both found it very amusing. Now I'll see "Naked and Violent" by Sergio Martino for the first time. It feels like I've seen my share of mondo movies, but this one has been on my wantlist for years and now MYA released it so...

"Cult director Sergio Martino, during the most glorious mondo years, delivered Naked And Violent, a documentary which unveils the brutality of the USA. Hidden behind a mask of perfection and justice, Naked And Violent traces the problems of American society in the 70s: from racial persecutions to the depraved sexual habits of the middle class, from the drug market to illegal gambling."

My hopes for 2010 are that Paul Naschy and Rino Di Silvestro gain the same attention after their death as Ingmar Bergman got.

I second recommendation for "porcile". it´s one of his best films. and most of his work annoys me in some way too.

been watching and enjoying some alberto cavallone recently. have yet to check the other recommendations in what concerns more twisted italian films in previous post.

who put out the thierry zeno editions kristian ?

Howl of the Devil is fantastic. I also found great pleasure in seeing Human Beasts. Hopefully The People Who Own the Dark and A Dragonfly for Each Corpse (Swedish VHS still does it for me) will come out on DVD sooner or later...


The person who introduced me to a grainy vhs copy of "Vase de noces" died last year. I was very surprised to see an official swedish dvd of it years later.... The name of the label is Njutafilms and they do an incredible work providing difficult titles for Swedish (and international) market. Some titles from their catalogue include Beast in the Heat, Coffin Joe, Lågsniff (by Åke Hodell), Pearls Before Swine, The Sweet Body of Deborah, Subconscious Cruelty, Gestapos last orgy, Cold Eyes of Fear, SS Experiment Love Camp, SS Lager 5, Sister Emanuelle, The Sinful Dwarf, Thundercrack etc.
Nothing special for hardcore collectors but still low prices and available at most stores. Easiest way for people outside Sweden is to order from www.videodrome.nu

THE PIG FUCKING MOVIE

I knew there was a nice dvd rel. Not sure if it's the Swedish rel. you've mentioned. I use to have a video dub but remember very little other than it wasn't as graphic as traders hyped it as back in 1989 or so. I'd like to see it again but right now I can't justify buying it.

How about TERROR EXPRESS? Nice UK release (I think UK). Kind of expensive over here from DiabolikDVD; $38 I think. There's a review at 10KBullets, I believe.
