Beautiful Arabella is an insatiable nymphomaniac with a crippled writer husband, Francesco, who is unable to pleasure her. Instead, Arabella searches for lovers in elicit dens of debauchery, bedding an endless array of men. However when her husband discovers her having sex with a stranger in their shed, Arabella panics and kills the man, only to discover that her sudden act of violence arouses creative inspiration in her Francesco. Covering up the crime, Francesco asks his wife to further explore her sexual fantasies and report back on her experiences. Unfortunately, Arabella’s lovers are subsequently visited by someone else…a vengeful murderer who violently castrates them…

Of all of Italy’s plentiful sex focused gialli, produced as the genre was winding down in popularity, few were anywhere near as outlandish as prolific cinematographer turned director Stelvio Massi’s ARABELLA BLACK ANGEL.

THE KILLER IS STILL AMONG US:

Christiana is a college student who is studying criminology. After becoming intrigued by a vicious murder and mutilation of a young couple on a secluded lover’s lane, Christiana begins her own investigation into the slayings. As she gathers clues that she hopes might lead to the killer’s identity, she begins to find strange parallels between her unassuming boyfriend. And when the killer strikes again, Christiana becomes increasingly afraid that she is, in fact, living with a depraved sex killer…

Based on a series of heinous and still unsolved serial murders committed in Florence throughout the 70s and 80s, Camillo Teti’s (Killer Crocodile) directorial debut, THE KILLER IS STILL AMONG US, blends true crime and stylish thriller, while playing through a series of unflinchingly shocking and brutal murders. Co-scripted by giallo legend Ernesto Gastaldi (My Dear Killer), this low key and very nasty giallo comes to Blu-ray for the first time from Vinegar Syndrome, newly restored in 4K from its 35mm original negative.

starring: Mariangela D'Abbraccio, Giovanni Visentin, Riccardo Parisio Perrotti, Luigi Mezzanotte

THE SISTER OF URSULA:

Timid and reserved, though mildly psychotic, Ursula and her lusty sister Dagmar, along with Dagmar’s drug dealing friend Filippo, have arrived at a beautiful, seaside hotel in order to locate their estranged mother, to complete their obligations in regards to an inheritance. But shortly after their arrival, they become embroiled in a web of terror as a black clad mystery assailant begins murdering other guests with a most unusual weapon…

One of the earliest sex-gialli, and certainly among the most memorable weapons in the history of the genre, Enzo Milioni’s THE SISTER OF URSULA packs in copious amounts of softcore sex between the killings and co-stars Barbara Magnolfi (Suspiria), Stefania D'Amario (Zombie), and Marc Porel (The Psychic). Vinegar Syndrome is proud to present the North American Blu-ray debut of this notorious fan favorite from a new 4K restoration.
