Hell Bent For Leather: S&M Movie Madness!

Whips and chains and leather and women. While the S&M themed 50 Shades Of Grey may be drawing in the crowds of Twilight fans, there’s one new S&M release that makes that book look like kids stuff and blows it clear out of the water. Leatherbound ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the upcoming Shameless Pop Erotica Fest box set, containing three dangerously kinky and seriously sexy slices of exploitation cinema. Including Venus In Furs, a filmed adaption of of Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch’s infamous novel of perversion and pain, Baba Yaga starring Cult icons Caroll Baker and George Eastman and the hip ‘n’ horny The Frightened Woman. So, to celebrate this gorgeous looking sleazy set’s release, here’s some other must see S&M exploitation ‘classics’…

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
Based on the infamous novel by Leopold Sacher-Masoch this fine film follows the perverted passions of... (83 mins.)
“ This stylish and lusciously filmed adaptation of Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch’s infamous novel of perversion and pain, stars the astonishing Laura Antonelli, naked and fired up for action! A powerful descent into sadomasochistic degradation this beautifully cruel study of sexual submission is an erotic delight to be savoured over and over again… ” - almar-6

Baba Yaga (1973)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.9/10 X  
A photographer finds herself falling under the spell of a witch. (91 mins.)
Director: Corrado Farina
“ Crossing the line between perverted dreams and fevered reality this adaptation of the classic Guido Crepax comic-book follows Valentina, a free-spirit beautiful young photographer who falls under the sapphic spell of an enigmatic witch (Carroll Baker, Baby Doll) in a surreal world populated by gorgeous whip-toting lesbians, Nazi fantasies and even sinister dolls!

“Finally, you can see my film as it was before the producers hacked it to pieces" Corrado Farina (RE: the Shameless Pop Erotica Fest Box Set) ” - almar-6

The Laughing Woman (1969)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
A rich and sadistic man, who enjoys degrading women as part of elaborate S&M games, abducts a female journalist. She is subjected to his unpleasant games but soon begins subverting him. (108 mins.)
“ Witness the ultimate subjugation of a woman to serve the most twisted desires of a man in the achingly hip ‘n’ horny Femina Ridens, where the kinkiest urges are played to a deadly conclusion.. Revealing the very darker side of passion, this tale boasts Hi-Sixties set design, and the beautifully sensuous leading lady Dagmar Lassander (in an epoch-making strip tease). ” - almar-6
 
4.
Olga's House of Shame (1964)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.1/10 X  
After having been run out of New York City's Chinatown, brothel owner Madame Olga moves her ring of prostitutes and criminals to a deserted ore mine and starts over. (70 mins.)
Director: Joseph P. Mawra
“ The third in the series of Olga films has remained a cult favourite of sleaze and trashiness. Shot in black and white during the mid 1960s, the film was a truly shocking merit of entertainment upon its initial release. The film made a massive impact in one of cinema’s greatest men of trash, John Waters and it’s easy to see why with its gratuitous spanking, torture and bondage. Starring the stunning Audrey Campbell, this is the granddaddy of S&M movies. ” - almar-6

The Night Porter (1974)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
After a chance meeting at a hotel in 1957, a Holocaust survivor and the Nazi officer who tortured her resume their sadomasochistic relationship. (118 mins.)
Director: Liliana Cavani
“ Recently released on DVD and Blu-ray, The Night Porter was one of the key films responsible for the boom in Naziploitation films of the late 70s/early 80s. Unlike its followers, this film is a much more artistic effort. Deemed to be the most controversial film of its time, there’s no denying the brutality in this hard-to-watch swastika flick. ” - almar-6

The Whip and the Body (1963)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X  
In the 19th century, a sadistic nobleman terrorizes the members of his family. He is found dead, but his ghost soon returns to haunt the residents of his castle. (91 mins.)
Director: John M. Old
“ Directed by one of Italian cinema’s greatest masters and staring the king of horror, Sir Christopher Lee, The Whip And The Flesh displays the pair at their arguable best. The film’s blurring of beauty and horror that became a staple of Bava is incredibly portrayed in this classy Italian horror. ” - almar-6
 
7.
The Story of O (1975)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
The beautiful O is taken by her boyfriend, Rene, to a bizarre retreat, where she is trained in bondage and sexual perversion... (97 mins.)
Director: Just Jaeckin
“ Based on a work of erotic fiction from 1954 – when S&M fiction really was something wholly shocking. For better or worse 50 Shades Of Grey wouldn’t exist without it. The Story of O has been filmed and mined for shock value numerous times but the 1975 version with Udo Kier remains a classic work of 70s sex cinema as the central character of O submits to her master in a series of submission rituals. ” - almar-6
 
8.
Secretary (2002)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
A young woman, recently released from a mental hospital, gets a job as a secretary to a demanding lawyer, where their employer-employee relationship turns into a sexual, sadomasochistic one. (107 mins.)
“ Almost cuddly, indie-mainstream kink from the Americans. James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal star as boss and employee, embarking on a journey into dominance and submission that is as much about two people falling in love as the next lightly comic romance movie… Except there’s a lot more spanking. ” - almar-6
 
9.
School of the Holy Beast (1974)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
In order to investigate her mother's strange death, a woman enters a sacred convent run by hypocritical, perverse nuns. (91 mins.)
Director: Noribumi Suzuki
“ The Japanese can take any Western idiom and bend it to their will. When the Italians – filmmakers in a country steeped in Catholic guilt – made a slew of sexy Nun pictures featuring libidinous sisters getting whipped and chained up, Freudian thinkers wouldn’t have batted an eyelid. When these films which mirrored certain obsessions that also feature in Pink Cinema movies became successful in Japan, they made one their own despite having no real history of the Catholicism in their country. Prepare for rope bondage basically. ” - almar-6
 
10.
Eugénie (1973)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X  
Eugenie, a beautiful but shy young girl, lives with her stepfather, a famous writer specializing in stories of erotica... (86 mins.)
Director: Jess Franco
“ It wouldn’t a be a list of sleazy bondage flicks without a Jess Franco film. He played out a whole, vastly prolific career melding sex, horror and fetish into an occasionally satisfying whole. Even when his films failed to hit the make, they mostly provided value for money in terms of smut and shock. Eugene is one of the best, with a moderate instead of poverty ridden budget. Eugenie is loosely based on a De Sade book and it’s recommended as an example of libertine 70s trash cinema – the kind that full strength hardcore porn – with its straight to the money shot ascetic – helped to kill off. Another example of Franco exorcised his personal obsessions for a paying audience. ” - almar-6
