Infamous for the final scene where the titular beast ravishes American heiress Lucy Broadhurst (Lisbeth Hummel) on the eve of her wedding to a French aristocrat, the graphic scenes of the beast coupling with its human prey sees the daring Borowczyk (Immoral Tales) expound on the animalistic nature of human sexuality. Proving far too outrageous for the censors, The Beast was banned in numerous territories for decades. One of the most bizarre and surreal experiences ever filmed, this depraved tale of animal desire is at once wry, riotous and perverse—and remains a masterwork of arthouse erotic cinema.

No, we only ship inside the US
Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.
We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.
All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.
Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.
Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.
If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.
We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
