June 14 turns up the heat with the erotic grindhouse classic Daughters of Darkness, where an ageless Countess and her young female companion seduce a troubled newlywed couple. George A. Romero and Dario Argento combine their terrifying powers in Two Evil Eyes, an irresistible double bill based on the writings of Edgar Allan Poe.
The Stendhal Syndrome tells the story of a young police officer, who suffers from a rare hallucinatory disorder which causes her to blackout when looking at works of art. She finds herself in the custody of the sadistic murderer she’s been sent to apprehend after he uses her affliction to ensnare her. All June 14 titles are US/CA.
Enter Mausoleum June 18 (US/CA/UK). A 10 year-old girl, mourning the death of her mother, becomes possessed by a demon, who has been preying on her female ancestors for centuries. Years later, the demon starts to take over her in every way.
June wraps up with the Years of Lead collection on June 21, all titles US/CA/UK. The season gathers five brutal crime thrillers produced amidst the political upheaval of 1970s Italy. In Vittorio Salerno’s Savage Three (1975) and Mario Imperoli’s Like Rabid Dogs (1976), random acts of violence committed by vicious young sociopaths threaten the fragile fabric of respectable society. In Massimo Dallamano’s Colt 38 Special Squad (1976) and Stelvio Massi’s Highway Racer (1977), renegade cops battling against red tape and political corruption turn to new and morally dubious methods to dispense justice. Finally, class dynamics are explored in Salerno’s No, the Case is Happily Resolved (1973) as an innocent man finds himself under suspicion for a savage crime committed by a highly respected member of society. Featuring an impressive line-up of Euro-cult stars, this collection of stylish, hard-hitting Euro-crime thrillers showcases the range and breadth of the genre and is a must-have for newcomers and grizzled veterans alike.
