Holy Shit, it's ANNA OBSESSED, UNCUT.

Found this one this morning. All I can say is holy shit.

From the IMDB: "This is without doubt the scariest porn thriller ever made, even more so because of its moral and psychological implications which only rise to the surface upon successive viewings. No one associated with this film, apart from the small but uniformly excellent star cast, appears to have any additional credits to his name, re-enforcing the credence that it was concocted by mainstream Hollywood talent "slumming it" in the adult industry. Plot and production are way too well-wrought - with special kudos for photography and editing, along with a subtle, disquieting score by "The Avengers" - to be the work of inexperienced first-timers. All these elements that traditionally contribute to the effectiveness of film-making are superbly employed to twist the screws of tension to the brink of tolerability."


From Adult DVD Talk (in reference to this 1982 Arrow Films release): Anna Obsessed, when viewed in the 75 minute version is an endurance test. The violence (both sexual and gore related) is very realistic and is not for the easily offended. However, the film never makes the viewer sympathetic for the perpetrators of the violent deeds and instead shows them for the disgusting acts they are. One major element that adds to the overall success of the film is that it works on multiple levels, one being as a tense psychological thriller and the other as a dramatic showcase for the horrors of rape. Either way, the film channels an emotional response in the audience rarely seen in hardcore films.

Even came with the company's video catalog.

This was recommended to me as something I would really appreciate. Now I *really* want to see it. Guess I'll have to settle for some shoddy dvd.

That catalog is a sweet surprise. When I came across the VHS for NINJA TERMINATOR I was very pleased to find it contained two different order forms for the late '80s Sho Kosugi fan club, both in fantastic shape.

A porn and horror film that works on both levels. That's not been done since Hardgore.

I like Powertool Massacre, but that's just me...

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
