OUT OF PRINT TITLE
International cult film icon Paul Naschy stars in A Werewolf in the Amazon, the heart of this four-film, 3-disc collection of vampires, werewolves, super villains and mummies as viewed through the dark and deliriously decadent lens of Brazil’s leading genre director, Ivan Cardoso. Long-sought after by film scholars and cult-movie aficionados, this first-time-to-DVD collection is brought to North American audiences by Camp Motion Pictures.
A Werewolf in the Amazon (2005) – In search of a powerful hallucinogen, five friends embark on a dangerous journey deep into the Amazon. But a bad trip isn’t the only threat, as they discover when they stumble across the hidden camp of the crazed Dr. Moreau and his murderous animal-human hybrid creations!
The Scarlet Scorpion (1990) – When the ultra-villainous Scarlet Scorpion kidnaps a famous fashion designer, crime-fighting millionaire play-boy The Angel must step in to save the day.
The Seven Vampires (1986) – As a botanist researches a dangerous carnivorous plant, a bumbling detective and his assistant investigate a plague of mysterious ‘vampire’ attacks surrounding a sexy upscale nightclub.
The Secret of the Mummy (1982) – Death stalks those who search for the tomb of Runamb, the mummy. Undeterred, Professor Expedito Vitus acquires all 8 pieces of the map, invests the mummy with new life and unleashes a murderous rampage!
A Werewolf in the Amazon Collection also includes ‘A Marca do Terrir’, a short film collection featuring Cardoso’s seminal 16mm short Nosferatu in Brazil and the experimental featurette, 'O Sarcofago Macabro.' Liner notes provided by Justine Smith, film critic and co-host of Sound on Sight.
" the most amazing, pulse pounding scores and beautiful lighting " - movie graveyard reviews
"the production design and imagination of these films definitely makes them fun for fans of foreign horror that also enjoy camp. A fusion of classic literary characters intermixed with more nudity and gore than what you would see in a Hammer Film, I'm surprised these films don't get more attention amongst cult movie fanbases. Perhaps this release will help remedy that" - fulvuedrive-in.com
"this set is a real hoot; and is a must for any lover of absurdist surrealism masquerading as a fright flick (or serial yarn)! 4 out of 5 stars"
