In 2007, after a nearly 40-year-run screening adult movies,
Vancouver's Venus Theatre closed its doors. Now, the infamous pink porno
palace is back in this collector's edition series, Venus Theatre
Presents. Curated from 16mm prints discovered in the Venus archives by
film historian Dimitrios Otis, Vol 1 includes two new essays: an
overview of the history of the Venus and censorship in British Columbia
by Dimitrios Otis, and an examination of Abduction of Lorelei, featuring
an interview with its star, Serena, by fringe culture writer Heather
Abduction of Lorelei (1977) - adult superstar Serena stars as Lorelei, a
beautiful American heiress kidnapped and held for a 1-million-dollar
ransom in this shocking crime-drama from director Richard Rank.
Initially motivated by money, Lorelei's captors refuse to release her
once the ransom is paid, forcing her to submit to a series of degrading
sexual acts. A surprising plot twist and Rank's gritty, realist
approach elevate this late 70s adult roughie.
South of the Border (1974) - Sharon Thorpe and Jaimie Gillis star in
this south-of-the-border rape-and-revenge flick about a trio of bandits
who get more than they bargained for when they kidnap three party girls
en route to Mexico. Easy Rider-inspired editing and a kinky climax make
this a must-see for fans of brutal adult cinema.
Turn Me 'Round (1975) - when a kinky serial cheater's games go a bit too
far, a swinging couple and his wife plot revenge! Directed by Bob
Kirke, starring Val Anderson and John Seeman.
