    Severin Releasing Black Cat, Shock Treatment And Patrick Still Lives!

    On October 27th, Severin Films is celebrating Halloween a few days early with three spooky classics from our friends across the pond. THE BLACK CAT (aka DEMONS 6), SHOCK TREATMENT, and PATRICK STILL LIVES are all arriving in HD with bonus goodies hand packed by the Severin team, so make sure you check for razor blades before consuming.
    
    To hear more about these releases, check out Episode #2 of the Severin Films Podcast, available here: https://linktr.ee/severinfilms.

    THE BLACK CAT

    From Luigi Cozzi – the writer/director of STARCRASH, CONTAMINATION and PAGANINI HORROR – comes the over-the-top meta-shocker about a production company filming a new sequel to one of ‘70s Italian horror’s best-known classics and the resurrected supernatural demon that may destroy them all. Caroline Munro (MANIAC), Brett Halsey (THE DEVIL’S HONEY), Florence Guérin (BLACK VENUS) and Urbano Barberini (OPERA) star in this long-unseen fan favorite – originally released in Italy as DEMONS 6 – now transferred in 2k from pristine vault elements for the first time ever.

    SHOCK TREATMENT
    
    French film legends Alain Delon (PURPLE NOON, LE SAMOURAÏ) and Annie Girardot (ROCCO AND HIS BROTHERS, THE PIANO TEACHER) star in the 1972 thriller from writer/director Alain Jessua (ARMAGUEDON, THE DOGS) that became a cause célèbre of international cinema: When a career woman (Girardot) checks into the exclusive seaside clinic of a doctor (Delon) famed for his unorthodox rejuvenation treatments, she’ll discover a nightmare of bourgeois depravities, medical atrocities and the eye-popping full-frontal nudity that sparked worldwide headlines. Robert Hirsch (HIVER 54, L'ABBÉ PIERRE), Michel Duchaussoy (MESRINE) and Jeanne Colletin (EMMANUELLE) co-star in this “political allegory fashioned as a horror story”(Time Out) – released in the UK as DOCTOR IN THE NUDE – now scanned uncut in 2k from the original interpositive.

    PATRICK STILL LIVES

    Shortly after the Ozploitation shocker PATRICK became a worldwide hit, producer Gabriele Crisanti (BURIAL GROUND), screenwriter Piero Regnoli (NIGHTMARE CITY) and director Mario Landi (GIALLO IN VENICE) went way beyond ‘unofficial sequel’ or ‘unauthorized remake’ to instead create this “mind-boggling example of Italian exploitation that has to be seen to be believed” (Moria): When a young man becomes comatose after a freak accident, his father invites six strangers to a secluded villa for a weekend packed with relentless nudity, outrageous violence and perhaps the most depraved sex/gore death in all of Italian horror. Sacha Pitoëff (INFERNO), Gianni Dei (MANHATTAN GIGOLO) and Mariangela Giordano (MALABIMBA) star in “one of the most ultimate exploitation films ever made” (Monster Pictures), now scanned uncut in 2k from the original negative for the very first time in 40 years.

    Anybody who complains about Severin can suck my fat nuts - their announcements are always awesome.
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

    That's okay, he doesn't post here anymore.

    Excellent news about Black Cat (I thought it was tangled up in legal hell) and Patrick Still Lives. Not heard of the other.

    Dammit! My wallet is begging for mercy as it is.

    I've never heard of Shock Treatment but Patrick and the Cozzi are a given.

    I could skip most of these excluding Patrick Still Lives. Black Cat is almost fascinating. It does have one bit of good gore that's lifted from Contamination. And that bit with the Suspiria theme was good. That's all the positives it has.

    PATRICK STILL LIVES is amazing. It deserves a bigger following.

    I remember a time when people dismissed it as a sleazy low point of Italian horror. Subsequently the sainted Argento rips off its most notorious kill. Really want to see that Gianni Dei interview.

    Luigi Cozzi is fascinatingly incompetent. Seems like a nice guy though.
