CANUXPLOITATION TO THE RESCUE!
Missing in action for decades, the 1974 sex horror pic SEXCULA was rescued from obscurity by the good folk at Canuxploitation last year thanks to their write-up on the film and its history here. Of course, it just meant that the film wasn’t lost, just incredibly hard to find, even on the grey market. Thankfully, Synapse has come to the rescue and will be issuing the film on DVD on April 9th as part of their Impulse line.
Here’s the synopsis:
“Those Evil Deeds of the Countess…SEXCULA!”
SEXCULA is a skin flick of legendary lost status. Shot in Vancouver, British Columbia, it was screened once before disappearing and sought after by cult aficionados for decades. Now, Impulse Pictures is proud to bring you the world premiere of SEXCULA. Sex film fans can finally get a look at this elusive crazy Canadian erotic/horror hybrid for the first time ever.
Starring a Marilyn Chambers lookalike in dual roles as Countess Sexcula, a buxom cutie with no qualms about lying nude on a table for the entire movie, and a horny bride who can’t wait for her ring. The nudity and sex are delivered nonstop in this campy horror romp. Watch in amazement at the naked picnic, the “girl-on-gorilla” strip tease, and stare in awe as a female pleasure-robot puts the plot into a time warp!
Bizarre only begins to describe… SEXCULA!
