S__ APOCALYPSE (1982)

A kinky gang of free-loving criminals, three women and two men, come into possession of the keys to a large and luxurious villa belonging to a man travelling abroad for an extended period of time. Taking advantage of the extra space and security of their new home, they decide to try a shot at the big-time and kidnap a rich man’s daughter, intending to hold her for a million-dollar ransom. Discovering that the girl has enjoyed a privileged and sheltered upbringing and is also a virgin, two of the female members of the gang decide to induct the hostage into their own sexually liberated ways. But they find out that she may be a lot wiser than they thought. And soon a dangerous power struggle is set in motion, a struggle that ends in a deadly and shocking “apocalypse” of sex and violence.

In Spain from the late 1970s, after the law was liberalized, there was an explosion of sex films on the country’s screens. These films were classified by the censor as “S”, meaning that they might offend the sensibilities of the viewer. Carlos Aured - director of four films starring horror icon Paul Naschy - made S__ APOCALYPSE, one of the most notorious of all the “S” movies. The film was released in two versions, the “S” rated softcore original and a hardcore version for distribution in Italy.

This two-disc limited edition Blu-ray includes both versions of the film and should not be watched by the easily offended.

NOTE ABOUT THE VERSIONS OF THE FILM IN THIS RELEASE –

S__ APOCALYPSE was originally produced as a strong soft-core movie, to be released in Spain within the “S” film classification. That’s the version you can see on disc one of this package. Towards the end of production, the film was sold to an Italian company who asked for even "stronger" sequences to be created for a version that would only be distributed in Italy. This was done after an agreement with the female cast. For the parts requiring male involvement a specialist actor was hired who spent a day providing the necessary inserts (pun unavoidable).

The version on disc two is a composite of the original “S” rated film with these added shots. This material was taken from four different VHS sources as we were unable to locate the negative of these additional shots. We believe that the extended version on this disc incorporates all the extra material that was shot on that busy day in Spain back in 1982.
