Evil Come, Evil Go/Oh! You Beautiful Doll/Widow Blue


“Few filmmakers were as bold, daring and bizarre as Walt Davis, the enigmatic auteur behind some of the wildest films to come out of Hollywood.

In EVIL COME, EVIL GO (1972), traveling Evangelist preacher, Sister Sarah Jane (Cleo O’Hara), is hellbent on ridding the world of evil, sex-obsessed men. Taking to the streets of Los Angeles, she quickly befriends a gullible young woman and the two embark on a mad killing spree.

Cleo O’Hara returns in OH! YOU BEAUTIFUL DOLL (1974), an almost surreal blend of madcap improvisation and low-rent thrills as over-the-hill film starlet Gaye Ramon lounges around her cluttered Hollywood home, conning innocent men into taking her acting courses. Meanwhile, a con-artist photographer manipulates beautiful hippies into revealing poses.

Finally, WIDOW BLUE (1970), Featuring an all-star cast, among them John Holmes and Sandy Dempsey, as well as gore effects straight out of H.G. Lewis playbook, WIDOW BLUE is a demented masterpiece which is coming to home video fully uncut for the very first time!”

Next up, THE NIGHT HUSTLERS (1968). In this Florida lensed oddity, a group of vice cops trade stories of their sleazy busts.”

The Happy House

“Their relationship on the rocks, a young Brooklyn couple heads to a remote bed & breakfast to work things out. But from the moment they arrive at The Happy House it s one disaster after another, and they soon begin to suspect they ve wandered into a real life horror movie. Events escalate from weird to terrifying as they contend with the house s batty owner, her imposing son, a moody Swedish lepidopterist, a pedantic English professor, an extraordinarily rare butterfly, the world s best blueberry muffins, a .44 Magnum, a demented serial killer, and one very strict rulebook.”

Erotic Blackmail

“From the darkest underbelly of European erotic cinema comes this seedy tale of a couple whose pleasures involves swinging with other couples, money and blackmail.

But there are more people that want to join in the fun. Etienne and his friend Julien do not accept any longer to just watch as silent bystanders from the outside in: they want to be in the midst of the action. Therefore, once alone in the villa, they take advantage of the situation and attack Valerie and Dauphine while both their husbands are absent. But who’s the really victim and who’s playing who?”

Can anyone escape the horror that controls the Amityville Asylum?”

The Woodsman

“What happened to Mauro in the forest during that three day period has remained a mystery until the recent discovery of this footage footage that was likely stolen from a government office in Belize. This is the terrifying story of a man searching for a dream, only to find a living, breathing nightmare. This is the story of Mr. Bosque s ill-fated, final adventure. Some things should remain a mystery.”
