Seven Women for Satan (1976) Blu-ray: Eurotrash from France

Mondo Macabro will be releasing director Michel Lemoine’s sleazy take on hunting humans, Seven Women for Satan (1976) on a remastered Blu-ray.

By day a mild mannered businessman, in his dreams Boris Zaroff chases naked females on his country estate, just like his notorious father.

One weekend a young couple arrives by chance at Boris’s castle. Their car has broken down and Boris invites them to stay the night. The young girl is fascinated by tales of the wicked Zaroffs and asks if she can see their famous torture chamber. Maybe now the Zaroff dreams can become a reality once more?

A stylish and erotic horror film that was banned in France in the 1970s.

Mondo Macabro was the first company to resurrect this film in 2003 with their DVD release of the theatrical version. Now finally on Blu-ray, and in collaboration with France’s Le Chat qui fume video label, it’s possible finally to see this rare Gallic horror film in something like its intended form. Alongside the theatrical release the disc includes over 30 minutes of trailers and alternate and deleted scenes, including the mythical “seventh victim” sequence. Most of this footage has not been seen for 45 years and is quite a revelation.

The disc has a wonderful and eye-opening interview with Robert de Laroche who plays “Francis” the mustachioed visitor who, along with his girlfriend Muriel, ends up as a victim in the Zaroff’s torture chamber.

Other extras include an archive interview with the late Michel Lemoine who talks about his life and career in the world of Euro exploitation movies.

A 20-page illustrated booklet gives background information and production details about this unique “film fantastique”.
