Starting later this year MM will be issuing a series of Greek exploitation films, starting with THE WIFE KILLER aka THE RAPE KILLER aka DEATH KISS as well as TANGO OF PERVERSION.
wrote:Tango is a really great exploitation gem from 1973. It’s got everything that you would expect from that vintage: masses of politically incorrect behaviour, dollops of sleaze, naked scenes galore, drugs, voyeurism, necrophilia, even a little bit of Greek psych-rock. In fact… is there anything this film hasn’t got?

The Wife Killer – the Greek title was the much less queasy Crime in Kavouri – was originally released in the US in 1976 as Rape Killer. We’ll probably avoid that title for obvious reasons…

The film is very close in style to the Italian giallo thrillers of the 70s and is another Hellenic exploitation gem. It has the same male lead as Tango – the wonderful Larry Daniels, known to his mother as Lakis Komninos and still active in Greek film and theatre to this day.

All (...) of the above will be brand new telecines and in the case of the Greek films, in English and Greek language dubs.

Yeah, these are sourced from the original Greek license holder, so everything is going to be the uncut Greek versions, though we do have access to the English language dubs of both movies.

We are totally psyched about these as well, Miltos. It's about time some classic Greek exploitation made it out in beautiful editions!
