Two new Greek exploitation classics on the way from Mondo Macabro

Mondo Macabro Logo
Mondo Macabro‘s back up and running, and relaunching their line of amazing exploitation DVDs with a couple of Greek exploitation classics. If you order the two of them together, you get one a solid month before it’s due out to everyone else.

Greece has been in the headlines a lot recently. Here at Mondo Macabro we support the Greek people and Syriza in their current struggle and wish them all success in the future. We feel it is also time to remind the world that in the 1960s and ’70s, Greece had a thriving film industry, turning out comedies, melodramas, musicals – and quite a lot of the sort of films that we at Mondo Macabro love.

So, to launch our new line of Greek Cult Cinema releases, we are making a special offer via their online store, for two Grexploitation classics at a special price of $35.00 plus postage. How can you resist? Discover a side of Greek life you didn’t even know existed.

The films are:

dvd cover - tango of perversionTANGO OF PERVERSION
The Tango club is the favorite hangout for a group of swingers who live for nothing but pleasure. Rosita, a beautiful lesbian, seduces Joanna by giving her dope. Stathis, Joanna’s sleazy boyfriend catches the two women in bed together and takes his brutal revenge on them, ending in Rosita’s death. All this happens in the house of Joachim, a rich playboy who gets his kicks by secretly filming Stathis having sex with girls from the Tango club. Joachim believes he is impotent, until he makes love to Rosita’s dead body. After that, things start to get weird…

Sex, drugs, necrophilia, voyeurism and a dose of Greek psychedelia, this film has it all. One of the legendary exploitation films of the early 1970s now makes its US home video debut in a brand new print, complete and uncut.

Penniless playboy Captain Jim is in hock to his rich older wife, Helen. She has even bought him the fancy yacht that now bears his name. But Jim does not want to be Helen’s toy boy any more. He wants to marry his lover, Laura. He pays a psychopathic killer of women to murder Helen so that he will inherit his wife’s millions. But the psycho killer has his own plans. Suspecting Jim will double cross him, he engineers a complex scheme that will give him the upper hand.

Very much in the style of the violent and baroque “Giallo” thrillers from 1970s Italy, The Wife Killer is a twisted, shocking and brutal exploration of the devious male psyche. Previously only released to cinemas in a cut version, this is the first official DVD release of the film in the U.S., complete and uncensored.

We’re excited for these, as you can tell (seriously: when was the last time we ran an unedited press release?). Hop on that pre-order and take a look at what else Mondo Macabro has to offer. I recommend snagging Don’t Open ‘Til Christmas while you’re at it.
