Newly restored to High Definition from the original film elements, Vampire Ecstasy / Sin You Sinners, directed by 'the Ingmar Bergman of 42nd St.,' Joseph W. Sarno, is the first entry in a new series celebrating one of the most gifted pioneers of the sexploitation genre. These two seminal films are now being released for the first time on Blu Ray.
Dripping with gothic atmosphere, Vampire Ecstasy (1973) is Sarno's mesmerizing foray into the horror genre. When a trio of beautiful young women journey to their ancestral home to claim an inheritance, they fall prey to a coven of witches intent to reincarnate their deceased vampire leader.
In the hypnotic noir, Sin You Sinners (1963), a medallion forged in a voodoo ritual sustains an exotic dancer's youth and beauty. When her jealous daughter and employer hatch plots to steal the amulet for themselves, it sets off a chain of events ending in murder. Sin You Sinners is the earliest available film by Joseph W. Sarno.
