“Racy Reels from the Something Weird Vault”
Vol. 1 – Cries of Ecstasy, Blows of Death / Invasion of the Love Drones

“A pioneering slice of post-apocalypse cinema” * only begins to describe the soft-core doomsday fever-dream that is Cries of Ecstasy, Blows of Death (1973), head-lining this fantasy – sci-fi double-feature Blu-Ray / DVD combo from Pop Cinema and Something Weird.

Before Mad Max, humans struggle to survive a barren planet populated by roving bands of biker gangs, armed with only some killer kung-fu moves and a willingness to get down with just about anyone. Starring Sandi Cary, Kim Lu and the ubiquitous Uschi Digard, Cries of Ecstasy, Blows of Death is a dystopian action film tailor-made for lovers of 70s exploitation cinema.

“Welcome to…The Erogenous Zone” intones a Rod Sterling-esque voice as we dive into 1977’s Invasion of the Love Drones, an absurd, ambitious and ultra-stylish sci-fi romp in which Eric Edwards is enlisted by aliens to deflect a nuclear-tipped rocket from their mother ship…by causing a planetary orgasm, of course. Featuring Bree Anthony, Jennifer Jordan, with an appearance by Jamie Gillis.

“Racy Reels from the Something Weird Vault”
Vol. 2 – Female Chauvinists / Hot Connections

“We have found a serpent in our garden of Eden” cries Ms. Fulla Bull, the leader of a militant group of feminists in Female Chauvinists (1976), one of two wacky ‘70s satires of the women’s lib movement in this double-feature Blu-Ray / DVD combo from Pop Cinema and Something Weird.

After infiltrating a feminist training camp, a recruit “hires” her boyfriend as the handyman, where he is discovered by the militant leader and scheduled for castration! Taking pity on him, the ladies decide to keep him as a stud, proving not all feminists are hard-core lesbians. Female Chauvinists features a bevy of grindhouse stars including the bountiful Roxanne Brewer, Uschi Digard and Candy Samples.

After a switch-board operator becomes pregnant by her married boss, the ladies – and wives – of the phone company get their revenge in Hot Connections (1972), a saucy comedy featuring Rene Bond, Tally Wright and Mindy Brandt.

Additional updates will be available early 2018.
