Product Description

Sultan of Sexploitation. King of Camp. Just a few names given to the legendary film-maker of cinema s greatest schlock movies. Producing a slew of entertainingly trashy exploitation flicks throughout the 60s and 70s, Novak ran the gamut from sexy soft-core smut to sleazy grindhouse thrillers. If you re a fan of cutie nudie style cinema (be honest, who isn t?) check out Volume One and discover what HARRY NOVAK is all about.

MANTIS IN LACE (LILA) A psychedelic psycho classic! Lila (Susan Stewaki) is a go-go dancer who gets a charge out of turning guyson. Events take a crazy twist after she is introduced to a cocktail of LSD and Methadrine by hippie-stud Tiger. Tripping her brains out to flashing colours and imaginary attacking bananas, Lila takes a meat cleaver to Tiger, hacking him to pieces. This is just the beginning of what may be the only film ever made to link homicidal maniac with soft foods! In between hackings, Lila continues dancing at the club, flashing her cute little drug soaked boobs, and flipping out on acid flashbacks. Looks like she's on a baaaaaad trip!

THE SECRET SEX LIVES OF ROMEO AND JULIET Shakespeare s romantic tragedy receives the Novak makeover, injecting lust-filled laugh-in style gags into its steamy sex scenes. The setting is the famous Globe Theatre in Old London, where the Bard s play is "performed to match the spirit of ribald time it portrayed". Busty redheads perform mock fellatio and naked flesh flies thick and fast as the title characters profess their love (and lust) for each other and anyone else. If only all Shakespeare was like this!

KISS ME QUICK A heady mix of monsters and mammaries! Novak s first feature film from 1964 kick-started his prolific career in the adult entertainment industry. Sterilox, an alien with an uncanny resemblance to Stan Laurel, is sent to Earth to find the perfect female specimen. Hooking up with mad scientist Dr Breedlove, they develop a potion that transforms three busty babes a them into gyrating topless go-go dancers. "Dance, you little sex bombs! Whirl you little dervishes!" CONTAINS AUDIO COMMENTARY WITH HARRY NOVAK.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exploitation Movie Giant 26 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
Harry Novak maybe a name most people are unfamiliar with, however his contribution and legacy in the film exploitation industry is up there with the very best. Having learnt his craft at RKO under the leadership of Howard Hughes, Novak set up his own studio producing a slew of pictures that bridged the gap between soft porn, grindhouse and schlock horror. This first collection starts from the beginning, with the acid trip of Mantis in Lace providing a cocktail of mammaries and LSD in a psychedelic classic.

Highly recommended purely on the basis of seeing where exploitation cinema began and looking forward to hearing the Novak commentary on Kiss Me Quick.
