Ray Danton was a radio, film, stage, and television actor, director, and producer from the mid-1950s on through the mid-'70s when he succumbed to kidney failure in 1992. He was a natural leading man with his good looks and suave demeanor but he often played gunslingers or slick criminals. After a career of being in front of the lights, camera and audience, Danton decided to try his hand at directing and like many before and after him, he would start in the horror genre. His first was in 1972 with the little known vampire flick Deathmaster starring "Count Yorga" himself, Robert Quarry. A year later he would direct new footage for Julio Salvador's Hannah, Queen of the Vampires aka Crypt of the Living Dead. Finally in 1975 he made his last and most well known film, Psychic Killer before beginning his career directing television shows like "Quincy" and "Cagney & Lacy" on into the late 1980s.

Get out your tissues, Julie Strain is a Temptress and SORCERESS!

Director: Jim Wynorski

Extras: Audio Commentary with Director Jim Wynorski / Additional Audio Commentary with Director Jim Wynorski and SPFX Artist/Actor/Director, Tom Savini



The late '80s and early '90s were a heyday for erotic direct-to-video horror, fantasy and thrillers. On the heels of smash hits like Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct, low-budget filmmakers would begin churning out the softcore smut adorned in "legit" movie trappings. Mom and pop video stores across the U.S. were full of shelves heaving with VHS tapes splashed with half naked women like Shannon Whirry, Shannon Tweed, Monique Parent and a personal favorite, the Amazonian goddess, Julie Strain. These sexy ladies also took over late-night cable TV, specifically on Cinemax after 11pm; Cinemax After Dark. A young man's dark, shivering fantasies would come to life in the form of a big-breasted (usually fake) seductresses brought to life by director's like Zalman King, Gregory Hippolyte (Gregory Dark), Andy Sidaris and Jim Wynorski.
