‘She’ll suck more than your blood!’
Sexcula was thought to be a legendary ‘lost’ adult horror film. Shot in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1974 by Bob Hollowich it was screened once before disappearing and has been sought after by cult aficionados for decades. Following a print being discovered in the Canadian Film Archives, Impulse Pictures, an imprint of Synapse Films, released this hardly seen movie on DVD on April 9 2013.
Impulse Pictures blurb: ‘Starring Marilyn Chambers look-alike (Debbie Collins) in dual roles as Countess Sexcula, a buxom cutie with no qualms about lying nude on a table for the entire movie, and a horny bride who can’t wait for her ring. The nudity and sex are delivered nonstop in this campy horror romp. Watch in amazement at the naked picnic, the “girl-on-gorilla” striptease, and stare in awe as a female pleasure-robot puts the plot into a time warp!’

“The bulk of the film is just goofy looking. Yet throughout all of this nonsense, there’s a very playful spirit to the movie. The sex is fun, the comedy fairly horrible but no less enjoyable and everyone in front of the camera seems to be in on the joke. Even if the performances are goofy and wooden, the cinematography fairly primitive and the whole thing completely ludicrous, this makes for a fun watch. They really don’t make them like this anymore, Sexcula is truly one of a kind.” Ian Jane, Rock! Shock! Pop!
“While monsters and sex have gone together in various forms going back for decades, it’s safe to say that there’s nothing else on the planet quite like Sexcula. Shot on the cheap by Vancouver filmmakers and unknown actors, it’s a brew so completely out of its mind you won’t believe it exists even after watching it. A mad female scientist, a lady robot, a lust-crazed bisexual ape, random porn inserts, nonsensical plotting, and terrible, terrible acting. In short, it’s pretty glorious.” Nathaniel Thompson, Mondo Digital
‘Though this film was obviously made with very limited resources. The film’s visuals are actually very good, especially the more sexually charged moments. Pacing is never an issue as things move along nicely from one sexual rendezvous to the next. And even the in between moments that give the viewer more character back-story are all very entertaining and at times extremely amusing.’ Chris Wood, 10k Bullets
