Patrice Rhomm is best remembered for writing the Belgian horror classic, Devil’s Nightmare, but following that, he became one of the earliest auteurs to bring genre film sensibilities to French sex films. Presented here are two of his hardest to see, and most heavily horror influenced erotica.
David Leger is a successful author who has run out of ideas. When his publisher asks him to deliver an erotic novel, David begins to look for creative inspiration in unusual places, deciding to rent an old mansion. But not long after he’s settled in, a mysterious woman begins to visit him each night, sharing increasingly fantastic and horrifying tales of sex and death, which begin to feel ever more real... Combining gothic horror with explicit sex and a macabre sense of humor, DRAGUSE is an unjustly forgotten hardcore/Euro-Horror treasure and stars Monica Swinn (Lorna the Exorcist), Olivier Mathot (Sadist of Notre Dame) and Erika Cool (Pussy Talk II), and comes to Blu-Ray newly restored in 4K and completely uncensored for the first time on video.
