Forthcoming from ODEON ENTERTAINMENT

When two pretty hitch-hikers are hired for a modelling assignment at a creepy English manor house, all is not what it seems a witches coven is in residence, populated by nude swingers, frustrated lesbians and a boiling cauldron of kinky sex! Directed by prolific filmmaker Ray Austin (The Avengers and Space 1999), Virgin Witch is a psychedelic mix of naked girls and bloodcurdling horror. This naughty British sex-thriller stars real-life sisters Vicki Michelle (from BBC sitcom Allo Allo) and Ann Michelle (Pyschomania), with show-stopping support from Patricia Haines (Michael Caine s first wife) and X -rated smoothie Neil Hallett (Keep It Up Downstairs). Originally rejected outright by the British censor, Virgin Witch is now available on DVD in the UK for the very first time.

Confessions of a Sex Maniac
Comedy legend Roger Lloyd Pack (BBC1 s Only Fools and Horses and The Vicar of Dibley) plays Henry, an up n coming architect tasked with designing a new leisure centre. Assisted by his sexy, super-efficient secretary Hilary (Vicki Hodge), Henry hits upon the idea of modelling the building on the shape of a humungous breast! In his quest for the perfect boob he road-tests a bevy of beautiful birds, including 70s sex-bombs Cherri Gilham, Ava Cadell and Monika Ringwald.
Love Variations
Britain's first ever feature-length sex education film caused widespread tabloid controversy upon its original release. Now more hysterical than educational, the ground-breaking Love Variations shows models performing a variety of sexual positions, whilst a family doctor provides an excitable commentary.

More stuff from new company One 7 Movies on January 11

ALIEN FROM THE DEEP (Alien degli abissi, Antonio Margheriti 1989)
Somewhere deep in the jungle a chemical corporation dumps tons of toxic waste in a still active volcano. Two environmentalists try to expose these illegal ways of getting rid of hugely dangerous waste, but they get caught by the vigilantes working for the company. One of them, the super-hot Maria Giulia Cavalli, manages to escape and she is saved by a snake farmer who lives alone in the jungle. Together they try to bring down the company, but it's too late. Years of chemical poisoning have spawned a deadly monster that is set out to exact revenge on the humans that have unknowingly brought him to life.

CHINESE KAMASUTRA (Kamasutra cinese, Joe D'Amato 1993)
Joan Parker (the gorgeous Georgia Emerald) is a British librarian who stumbles by accident on an ancient book that contains the forbidden secrets of the Chinese Kama Sutra. She digs deeps into the pages of the mysterious book and starts having wild fantasies about her own sexuality, which has always been very tame. Nevertheless, she does not accept the advances of her fellow Chinese librarian. Unaware that every night she’s being watched from the windows of an ancient haunted house, she finds herself little by little caught in the clutches of the Kama Sutra cult she’s been reading about.

THE SINS OF MADAME BOVARY (Die nackte Bovary, Hans Schott-Schöbinger 1969)

Emma Bovary (Edwige Fenech) is an aristocratic woman deeply bored by her bourgeois life. Married to a man she does not love anymore, and fearing that her youth and life may vanish in the service of a man who does not know how to please a woman any more, she starts dreaming about another love.

CALL ME SALOME from Mya Communication on February 22

CALL ME SALOME (Chiamami Salomè, 2005)

The story of John the Baptist's tragical death relives in this bold adaptation of Oscar Wilde's "Salomé". Director Claudio Sestieri makes a bold and confrontational statement with this highly stylized picture that completely reinvents Oscar Wilde's classic tragedy. It's a full moon night. An abandoned factory in which a never ending party takes place is the set of a tremendous orgy of power, madness, violence and sex. The characters of this tragic play are all on the verge of breaking down but they try to hang on.
