An Erotic Vampire in Paris:A young woman goes to Paris for her mother’s funeral. Shortly after her arrival she is raped and robbed of all of her belongings. Distraught and aimlessly wandering around the streets of Paris the young is befriended by a mysterious woman with a thirst for blood.Content wise An Erotic Vampire in Paris is short on plot and heavy on lesbian sex scenes. Pacing wise the film crawls along at a tedious pace. And even though the visuals take full advantage of the Paris locations. The film’s inability to establish atmosphere is just one of this productions many short comings. If you are looking for any back story or well rounded characters, look elsewhere. Performance wise the two lead actresses Misty Mundae and Tina Krause provide some much needed eye candy.
An Erotic Werewolf in London: A lesbian lycanthrope tells a British tabloid reporter about all of her sexual exploits.
Just like Seduction Cinema’s other soft-core horror films, An Erotic Werewolf in London is more concerned with its sex scenes, then fleshing out its plot or developing its characters. And while the lack of these two aforementioned things can quickly cripple most productions. Luckily there are only a minor bump in the road for this production. At just under seventy minutes the film moves along at a brisk enough pace that there rarely is a dull moment. Also the film does a reasonably good job establishing atmosphere. And once there is bevy of beauties on display, who are more than willing to show some skin. Even though Anoushka is technically the star of this production. This film’s standout performance actually comes from Ruby Larocca.
Purgatory Blues: A down on his luck addict finds himself stuck in purgatory. Desperate to get out of purgatory, he makes a deal with one of the devils minion’s. He is given seventy two hours to corrupt someone who is pure and in return they will take his place in purgatory.
Content wise Purgatory Blues is more of a straight up horror film, then the other two films included in this collection. In fact outside of the devil’s minion and her sidekicks. The amount of flesh on display is minimal. Besides the aforementioned man’s quest to get out of purgatory. This film also features a sub plot that revolves around a young woman in an abusive relationship that is befriended by the man trying to get out of purgatory. Even though these scenes tend to be more melodramatic, then the rest of the film which is more rooted in the horror film genre. Surprisingly these more melodramatic moments are this film’s most compelling moments. And without a doubt this film’s greatest asset is Debbie Rochon in the role of Martha the woman trapped in an abusive relationship.
All three films included as part of this collection are presented in their original 1.33:1 aspect ratios. Also all three films were shot on video and the source materials look pretty good all things considered. There are no problems with compression and the image generally looks crisp.
Each film comes with one audio option, a Dolby Digital stereo mix in English. There are no major issues with distortion or background noise and dialog comes through clearly.
Extras for An Erotic Werewolf in London includes a twelve minute career retrospective with actress Ruby Larocca and a detailed audio commentary track with director William Hellfire and producer Michael Raso. Other extras include a Misty Mundae trailer vault. Extras for An Erotic Vampire in Paris include a eight minute ‘Making of’ segment with comments from William Hellfire & Misty Mundae and a fifteen minute ‘Behind the Scenes’ segment. All of the extras are well worth a spin, especially the interview with Ruby Larocca. Overall this is another well rounded collection of titles from Seduction Cinema that gives those who missed out on their previous stand alone releases a chance to pick them at their most affordable price to date.
