Old news, I know... November 24 R1 titles

HUNCHBACK OF THE MORGUE
Gotho (Paul Naschy), a moronic hunchback employed in a hospital morgue, is deeply in love with Ilse (María Elena Arpón), but it's an ill-fated relationship. Ilsa is terminally ill with tuberculosis and dies shortly after. Out of his mind for the loss, Gotho steals her corpse, killing the medical students who are going to dissect it, and hides her in an underground crypt. Dr. Orla (Alberto Dalbés), a mad biologist, promises Gotho that he will revive Ilsa, but Gotho will have to provide him with dead - and live - bodies for his terrible experiments.

THE LAST DECAMERON
A joyful group of monks go to visit a group of nuns, and while they are all enjoying themselves they tell and listen some erotic stories. For one of his first erotic effort, cult director Joe D'Amato chooses the "decamerotica" genre, following the success Pier Paolo Pasolini's The Decameron (1971). The surrounding story has an unusual religious setting, which, at the time, caused a very harsh criticism of the movie.

ART OF LOVE
For the final film in his 'Immoral Trilogy', Borowczyk created one of the most lushly bizarre erotic tales of our time and perhaps the most ambitious work of his entire career. The setting is Rome, 8 A.D., where the poet Ovid watches over an epoch of forbidden seduction and unnatural acts among maidens, centurions, servant girls and the occasional farm animal.

HUMAN COBRAS
Gangster Tony Gardner (George Ardisson) receives news that his brother Johnny has been murdered. Watched at every turn by a mysterious figure, Tony manages to make contact with his brother's wife, Leslie (Erika Blanc), and uncovers evidence that a man by the name of Mortimer (Luciano Pigozzi) may be behind the assassination. Tony is able to track him down, but Mortimer is also murdered shortly after. Tony and Leslie must then go to Nairobi, Kenya, to find Johnny's other business partner, as everything seems to indicate that he's the murderer.

THE LADY MEDIC
Gianni (Alfredo Pea) wants to avoid in any way to undergo the military service, because this would mean a drawback for his working career. One of his friend suggests various ways of pretending to be unfit, but he will have to pass the test of the beautiful and sexy lady medic Elena (Edwige Fenech).

THE REAL EMANUELLE
Young engineer Francesco Ferraro (Enzo Bottesini) is sent to Smeraldo Island in the Seychelles to oversee the tests necessary to dig a silver mine. But Francesco must also find out what happened to his predecessor, vanished without trace. The island seems to be an Eden on Earth, and the native girls freely explore the joys of sex, but there is something in the dark working against Francesco, and a mysterious accident disables his delicate equipment.

THE CRICKET
Wilma Malinverni (Virna Lisi) is a former prostitute and an aged nightclub singer. After having been abruptly fired, she leaves with her only fan, a young naïve girl known as the cricket (Clio Goldsmith). On the road as prostitutes, they meet Annibale (Anthony Franciosa), and decide to help him with his road stop for truckers. The place is named "The Cricket" and business goes well, so that Wilma ends up marrying Annibale. Then Saveria (Barbara De Rossi), the 18 year old daughter of Wilma, arrives: she is a prostitute too and starts a chain of events that will end up in tragedy.
