Erotic Nights of the Living Dead! This Joe D’Amato effort is one of my favorites in his first porno holocaust period, it has great zombies, an interesting story with one of the most headclokingly bizarre bookend sequences and a fantastic cast of European Trash veterans.
So is the image a fantastic sex shot? Nah. A groovy evil zombie? Nope. Laura Gemser writing in the surf? Nope.
You see, Erotic Nights of the Living Dead is a film I hunted high and low for a complete print of. A very ugly Italian language bootleg eventually surfaced that contained all the hardcore bits, and honestly, I preferred the Japanese edition which went for a pretty straight horror film with softcore leanings. But the full blast edition contains THE UNCORKING sequence. Jaw dropping and adds a ‘hole’ new appreciation of the term “OH SNAP!”
This is my favorite shot, not a close up, but Eastman getting ready for a simple strip show-he could not have known what was coming up next…and neither did I. Click to enlarge and enjoy!
