Marian Dora Takes you on a sleazy Voyage to Agatis

aka Reise nach Agatis

Director: Marian Dora

Cast: Thomas Goersch, Tatjana Müller, J. Lisa Dombrowski

Massacre Video / Region 1 / Unrated / 1.78:1 widescreen / Mono / 73 minutes

Extras: Rare On-Camera Interview with Director Marian Dora and Thomas Goersch / Four Short Films By Marian Dora / Stills Gallery / Reversible Cover / Trailers For Upcoming Massacre Video Releases / Theatrical Trailer


Filmmaker Marian Dora is best known for the intensely gory and homoerotic film Cannibal, based on the German case of Armin Meiwes who met a man on the internet who wanted to let Meiwes fulfill his cannibalistic fantasies by sacrificing himself to him. A few years after Cannibal, Dora was approached to make a movie on a yacht. Now they had a location, but instead of having a story and complex plot, they would have a vague situation and build a movie on what would happen on this boat if this situation occurred. If you know anything about Dora's other movies, including Cannibal and Melancholie der Engel, you know that he just loves symbolism and with Voyage to Agatis, you get that in spades.

Sexcula Will Suck More Than Your Blood!

Director: Bob Hollowich

Cast: Debbie Collins, Jamie Orlando, John Alexander, Tim Lowery, Marie McLeod, Bud Coal, David F. Hurry

Impulse Pictures / Region Free / Unrated / 1.33:1 Fullscreen / 2.0 Mono / 86 minutes

Extras: Theatrical trailer / Liner notes


The 1970s and early '80s brought us some wonderfully weird adult cinema. Back then when you could still call them "films" without it being colloquial, porn filmmakers went balls-to-the-wall with storylines and a lot of the time the sex took a backseat to the nuttiness. That could definitely be said for the long-thought lost Canadian porn parody Sexcula which was shot in Vancouver, British Columbia (GO CANUCKS!). Bizarre doesn't begin to describe Bob Hollowich's (aka John Holbrook who went on to work as camera operator and director of photography on mainstream films) sex-filled gothic nod to the Universal Monsters, starring Marilyn Chambers lookalike Debbie Collins who only did this one movie.
