Awesome news! Crossing my fingers it will include english subs (and that they'll release the original comedy version - for some idiotic reason this sex comedy was recut and redubbed as a "hard" exploitation flick in some countries, with obvious strange results). It's a real fun film, i'd love to see it and understand more of what's going on!

Yes, it is a new anamorphic transfer in scope 2.35 and of two versions. The french version (midnight party) is over 90 minutes with rare stuff, the other version is an alternative cut from 35mm cinema-print (Heisse Berührungen).

They're doing COUNTESS PERVERSE (or whatever you wanna call it) too. Two versions of it. Nice! But I hope you all show some loyalty and stick with the Mondo Macabro release! ;)

Hey Daniel,

What does it mean when the Germans say HARDBOX for a dvd description, is that like X-rated cult VHS clamshell, or is more like a digipack?

Here's a link to a hardbox:

The picture on the cover is printed on the case itself and it's... hard. As far as I know they're only making them in Germany and Austria.

Thanks Jack, Its what I figured it to be, they are a pretty sweet packaging idea though, and I do own a few of them. Wish more companies would do it.

Yes, Hardbox is the big box, like X-Rated or other Hardbox-labels in germany.

Diabolik sold out on this fairly quickly, which is a good sign for Ton Film I guess. My copy should arrive today.

Yowsers! Clearly it's not leaving a whole lot to the imagination but is this a hard core Franco movie? I'm not sure I like hardcore Franco. It's an odd thing but in his hardcore movies I find he usually seems to be aiming more for depressing than erotic which makes me wonder what the point of the hardcore is in the first place.

It is no hard core Franco. It is comedy/erotic/spy :up: and a litle bit MG-action

Ian Jane

What Daniel said. No hardcore (despite the Lady Porno alternate title), but pretty graphic. I just skimmed the disc yesterday but yeah, it looks playful and fun.

Patrick Lambert
06-08-2012, 07:44 PM
Thanks for the screencaps, Ian ! Haven't gotten my copy up north yet.

It's lookin' good and I can't wait to see it in 2.35, it's been years since I've seen this one but remember having a blast the first time out.

Ian Jane
06-10-2012, 07:52 PM
So I got an hour into this before my step-son came home and we had to turn it off for obvious reasons. It's funny. Sometimes good funny sometimes just WTF funny, but funny. Lina shows a good knack here for physical comedy, among other things, and does the whole thing with tongue very much in cheek. As noted, she breaks the 4th wall in the opening scene, and continues to knowingly wink (and talk to) the camera throughout the movie. Will hopefully finish it later tonight once the minor is in bed.

Ian Jane
06-12-2012, 12:36 PM
...and finished it last night, kid free. The ending was a bit more grim than I'd thought but Lina winds it all up on a lighter note by diddling herself, so all's well that end's well.
