Herschell Gordon Lewis – also known as the “Godfather of Gore” – is famous for creating the splatter/gore genre with just a handful of films (“Blood Feast”, “Two Thousand Maniacs!”, “Color Me Blood Redd”, etc.). Few people know that between 1969 and 1971, the acclaimed master of exploitation cinema also shot three sex(ploitation) films that fell completely off the radar: “The Ecstasies of Women”, “Linda and Abilene” and “Black Love”. These films are so obscure that they were deemed lost forever after the glory days of drive-ins and inner-city grindhouses.

That is until in 2012, the original negatives of these three films unexpectedly surfaced! They were beautifully restored by our friends at Vinegar Syndrome (http://www.vinsyn.com) that specialize in restoring and releasing classic and rare exploitation films.
PYLON.FM was proud to co-finance and co-produce the restoration of these rare (and rather untypical) HGL films and finally make them available for everyone on DVD and BluRay in excellent quality.

All three films have been restored in 2K from their original camera negatives and are now being released for the first time anywhere in the world!

LINDA AND ABILENE combines the savagery of a classic Hollywood western with sequences of intense eroticism.
1969 / Color / 92 minutes / 1.37:1

ECSTASIES OF WOMEN is a torrid comedy/drama set in the swinging world of late 60′s Los Angeles.
1969 / Color / 74 minutes / 1.37:1

BLACK LOVE exposes the lovemaking habits of the contemporary black couple through a series of amusing and creative vignettes.
1971 / Color / 74 minutes / 1.37:1
