Rare Borowczyk Films from Severin!!

Just announced on the Severin Films website is a pair of obscure but fascinating looking movies from the late Master of the surreal Eurotic Film Walerian Borowczyk. I'll step back and let them do the talkin':

The late, great Walerian Borowczyk's long unavailable follow up to his erotic classic IMMORAL TALES has been acquired by Severin Films. IMMORAL WOMEN aka HEROINES DU MAL is a collection of four films from the master exploring the forbidden desires of a quartet of feisty femmes (including one who has a rather inappropriate relationship with her pet bunny). Expect a beautiful new transfer from the original negative.

In 1979 legendary French new wave producer Pierre Braunberger (SHOOT THE PIANIST; VIVRE SA VIE) gathered together three of the world's finest erotic filmmakers to produce a landmark feature. Just Jaeckin (EMMANUELLE), Walerian Borowczyk (THE BEAST) and Shuji Terayama (FRUITS OF PASSION) direct a triptych of shorts based on their fantasies. The formidable Laura Gemser toplines an international cast. This is the first time this film has been released in the US and will be newly transferred from the original negative.

We here at Worldweird just love us some foreign smut. Therefore we love us some Severin Films. You should too, if you know what's good for ya.
