Sarno discovery and brief-careered Swedish cult starlet Marie Forsa (Justine and Juliette, Butterfly, Immoral Tales) heads a cast of Teutonic dolly birds and more or less unknowns in a much needed, greatly improved upgrade of Joe Sarno’s atmospheric softcore horror opus Vampire Ecstasy.

Film in desperate need of an editor. You know, one that’s not completely loaded off his ass during working hours? Apply to: Serge Goncharoff, Grads Corp.
Hell, Doris Wishman was a more coherent editor…
A not unattractive hippie type with long sexy hair but a bit of a hard bitten look about her and saddled with a gratingly whiny voice is getting it on on the beach with some old cop type whose tendons in his neck stick out like he’s having a coronary and whose back is covered in enormous liver spots.
Welcome to the strange world of The Blue Hour.

This week on Third Eye Cinema: Mike Vraney of Something Weird Video!
Mike has been a major and early force in preservation of drive-in, grindhouse, and American independent film, dating back to the late ’70s. Well before the advent of DVD or the publishing of a proliferation of cult cinema related literature and interest, Mike was out there making connections and gathering decaying prints from distributors, filmmakers, and fleapit grindhouses, so that we could still enjoy them 30-40 years later!

Welcome to Third Eye Cinema! Tonight we interview Michael Raso, impresario behind Pop Cinema (formerly EI Entertainment), whose massive array of sublabels include Camp Motion Pictures, Retro Seduction Cinema, Shock-O-Rama, and Secret Key.
Mike is a major force in the DVD release of 80’s SOV (shot on video) cinema, and responsible for the restoration and release of numerous “lost” Joe Sarno films, and the driving force behind 90’s siren Misty Mundae, among other achievements. In addition, we discuss the present and forseeable future of the DVD industry and Mike’s interest in film based photography.
