    Mondo Macabro Releasing The Lady Kills/Pervertissma

    Mondo Macabro is proud to present a double bill of two films by the legendary French cineaste Jean Louis van Belle, director of the astonishing SADIST WITH RED TEETH – an earlier Mondo release on DVD.

    Remastered and available for the first time on home video anywhere in the world, this new “perverse double bill” contains the 1969 film PERVERTISSIMA and the 1970 production THE LADY KILLS (French title: Perverse et Docile). THE LADY KILLS tells the story of Françoise Frémont, who travels across Europe on an apparently random killing spree, bumping off a series of increasingly odious men. From Swinging London to the eternal city of Rome, she leave a trail of dead bodies and the question: why? A mystery film as only Jean Louis van Belle could make it, THE LADY KILLS is a blast from start to finish with an amazing soundtrack of gloriously groovy psych-rock.

    PERVERTISSIMA is a bizarre – and possible unique - combination of mondo movie and mad scientist flick. A beautiful woman is hired by a scandal sheet editor to research and write a report on “Love in Paris”. Her quest takes her from a lesbian sauna to a secretive club of masked swingers, via stints as a street walker in a seedy Paris back alley and a strip-tease artist in an upmarket cabaret. Her final outing leads to the clinic of the dangerous Doctor Vilard, who aims to create sex robots out of human flesh, and mate them to create a race of superhumans to take over the world!

    Described as: “Generous, inventive, mad, passionate, but above all human “, Jean Louis van Belle was for decades an almost mythic figure on the French film scene. He was never interviewed and always refused to have his photograph taken to preserve his anonymity. When he emerged from exile some ten years ago he was treated to a special show at the renowned Paris Cinematheque and then went on to astonish audiences via a whirlwind series of screenings of his unclassifiable and rarely seen films. Some of his story is told in the documentary So Who is Jean Louis van Belle?, featured on the disc alongside introductions to each film from writer Christophe Bier.

    Check out the new teaser trailers for each in the comments below for a taste of these unique films!

    The current plan is to have this double feature Blu-ray available for sale in late April or early May and to ship out soon after. However, the COVID-19 crisis is making this schedule extremely fluid at best. But we will be as transparent and forthcoming as possible with this information as soon as we have it.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    This double-feature looks amazing! I really dig SADIST WITH RED TEETH, these look just as wacky.
