Magic amulets and occult rituals link Vampire Ecstasy and Sin You Sinners, two seminal films from the master of psycho-sexual cinema, Joseph W. Sarno. Dripping with gothic atmosphere, Vampire Ecstasy (1973) is Sarno’s mesmerizing foray into the horror genre. When a trio of beautiful young women journey to their ancestral home to claim an inheritance, they fall prey to a coven of witches’ intent to reincarnate their deceased vampire leader. In the hypnotic noir Sin You Sinners (1963), a medallion forged in a voodoo ritual sustains an exotic dancer’s youth and beauty. When her jealous daughter and employer hatch plots to steal the amulet for themselves, it sets off a chain of events ending in murder.Newly restored to High Definition from the original film elements and featuring liner notes by film scholar Tim Lucas, Sin You Sinners / Vampire Ecstasy is the first entry in a new series celebrating one of the most gifted pioneers of the sexploitation genre.
