From nudies to roughies to ultra weird regional curiosities, the sexploitation world welcomed any filmmaker working in any genre, so long as the limits of nudity and sex on screen were pushed as far as they could go - but never all the way. DISTRIBPIX, one of the legendary names in the genre (and whose extensive library will be the backbone of this line), will offer single, double, and even triple feature Blu-rays highlighting works from every corner and crevice of softcore smut, from the dawn of nudie cuties to the all-but-hard 70s, with plentiful lost and never on disc films along the way.
Few filmmakers were more closely associated with the darkest, grimiest, and most shocking side of 1960s sexploitation than notorious auteur Michael Findlay (The Ultimate Degenerate), and no films better personify his uniquely twisted approach to the genre than the infamous "Flesh" trilogy.
In the first entry in the trilogy, THE TOUCH OF HER FLESH, Findlay himself stars as Richard Jennings; happily married to the beautiful Claudia (Angelique Pettyjohn). Richard leaves for a business trip only to return and discover Claudia in bed with her lover! Panic stricken, Richard staggers to the street and is hit by a car, losing an eye and gaining a limp as a result. Scorned and vengeful, Richard adopts a new identity and begins a murderous rampage against all women he deems "immoral."
In THE CURSE OF HER FLESH, the middle entry of the trilogy, Findlay returns as the bloodthirsty and eye-patched Richard Jennings. Continuing his quest to rid the world of sex-crazed females, Richard ups the ante - and bodycount, devising an array of increasingly gruesome methods of dispatching his victims all while planning the ultimate revenge against his wife's lover, Steve.
In the final installment of the trilogy, THE KISS OF HER FLESH, Richard has lost what little sanity he had left, instead putting all emphasis on seeking out and brutally slaying any and every woman who crosses his path. However, this time he might have met his match as his deceased wife's sister, Maria (Uta Erikson), is hellbent on putting an end to Richard's orgiastic rampage...
All three of these perverted classics of underground sleaze have been newly restored in 2K from their uncensored 35mm camera negatives and are making their world Blu-ray debut from Distribpix Inc. and Something Weird!
