They've updated their website at last - on August 28th THE BLOOD ROSE will be unleashed!

DIRECTOR : Claude Mulot

(France 1970)


1.66:1 Anamorphic

French language with English subs / UK dub


When his new bride's face is hideously disfigured in a fire, Frederic Lansac, a famous society painter, is determined to restore her beauty. He seeks out a notorious plastic surgeon who is on the run from the authorities. Using Lansac's remote castle as a base, the two of them hunt down and imprison a series of young girls. Their skin is to be used in a serious of experiments aimed at restoring the face of Lansac's wife.

The Blood Rose was widely touted as one of the first films to mix sex and horror. Its director went on to make some of the most famous French erotic movies of all time. Here, with a cast of France’s most beautiful young actresses and genre veteran Howard Vernon (Seven Women for Satan), he weaves a dark and disturbing tale that is one of the most sought after rarities for the Euro horror fan.

Special Features:

* World DVD premiere
* Brand new anamorphic transfer taken from the negative

Does anyone know who the "lifetime friend/assistant director" person interviewed might be? My version of the film lacks credits and IMDB is no help.
Big fan of Mulot films here, and since I don't know french info about the man & his work is non-existent.

Yes, this is certainly great news, I feel that it's about time Mondo Macabro released some Luchadero, can't get enough of those mexican men in mask.

And you need to update the blog, I mean come on already, I've been checking in every day for weeks without anything new to tickle my eyeballs! Life's not fair.. :/
