Default SHAM300 - Shameless Slasher Nasties: The DVD Specs

SHAMELESS SLASHER NASTIES



THE RETURN OF THE SLASHER NASTIES

Shameless proudly presents a historic collection of 3 Italian shockers, curated with an exclusive Kim Newman essay on THE THREE FACES OF ITALIAN EXPLOITATION, in a must-have homage to slashers, nasties & videotapes..

Disc 1 - KILLER NUN
Branded as obscene around the world & banned outright in UK

Presented for 1st time uncut, this banned Video Nasty, is one of the most over the top of the Nunsploitation genre. Based on the true story of Sister Gertrude, played in a powerhouse performance by Swedish Sex Siren Anita Ekberg who has stepped out of the Dolce Vita’s Trevi fountain, turned junkie and now stalks innocent young nuns for kinky sex whilst torturing, killing and robbing aging pensioners to fuel her morphine addiction.

Disc 2 - TORSO
The proto-slasher

“It's such a fantastic Italian slasher film. … Torso is his [Sergio Martino] masterpiece. It's so brilliantly photographed… but what's so great about Torso is the awesome lesbian subplot. I mean, Torso was a huge influence on Hostel II… The last 15 minutes of Torso are just some of the best film-making I've ever seen..” Eli Roth

In Perugia (!) a black gloved saw-wielding killer starts effective slayer multi-tasking by mutilating a cast of co-ed beauties !


Disc 3 - NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS
You can tell yourself it’s only a movie but it won’t help!

Please mind the half-dead girls between the platform edge and the train as you board a cinematic ride into terror that was banned as a Video Nasty. This is the 1st ever release - now uncut and complete - of Aldo Lado’s acknowledged superior response to The Last House on the Left. This chillingly well-made claustrophobic slasher-thriller (also featuring an Ennio Morricone score) sears the brains of those who dare watch it.


Special Features
- Exclusive Interview with star Anita Ekberg
- Boxset Extra: Specially commissioned booklet by Kim Newman: THE THREE FACES OF ITALIAN EXPLOITATION.



The Slasher Nasties set will be released on DVD by Shameless Screen Entertainment on 24 October 2011.

I love the cover and prefer the title to just 'slasher'. It's crying out for a place in my collection!

I do like that. I need to get it just for the music on Killer Nun, of which I can't get enough of!

I luv this! In my mind, the artwork for this release is easily one of the best Shameless have ever done! It's incredible! Long live the VHS!

That's an awesome cover. I wonder what the reverse looks like? Glad to see it's a bit different to the Fulci box and isn't just the same 3 dvd cases housed in an extra box (as far as I can make out from the picture anyway - 3 dvds in the one VHS-style case with reversible sleeve, yeah?)

That is spot on the money (plus a booklet)!
