Following on from our highly successful Greek collection entries Tango of Perversion and The Wife Killer, Mondo Maxillary is proud to present two world video premiers on one super exciting Blu-ray disc. Restored from original 35mm materials and entirely uncut these films are sure to excite the interest of all fans of extreme and "out there" cinema. Both feature the talents of Gisela Dali - the "Greek Bardot" and both are highly collectable.

The Wild Pussycat is an unsung classic of exploitation cinema. Produced in Greece in 1968, it was not officially released there until 1972 and then only in a cut and compromised version. The simple plot concerns a women whose sister was exploited and driven to suicide by a sleazy pimp. In order to get revenge on him the woman seduces the man, drugs him and imprisons him in a sound proofed room, tormenting him through a large one way mirror (he can see out, no-one can see in ) by performing sultry strip tease dances and having sex with men and women while he can only look on, helpless to stop it or join in. Her final vengeance on him is so shocking it raises eyebrows even today.

In spite of its lurid subject matter and explicit visuals, The Wild Pussycat was not a low budget quickie with a cast of unknowns and a first time film maker. It was directed by Dimi Dadiras, one of the most successful director/producers of the period, and it features one of the big stars of Greek cinema – Gisela Dali, known in her day as "the Greek Bardot".

The Blu-ray includes both the 1972 Greek version (with much of the sex removed and a plot featuring a drug dealing con inserted) and the full on, uncut export version. So essentially there are three films on the disc.

THE DESERTER
Directed by: Christos Kefalas
Country: Greece, 1970
Black and white / 1.37:1 Academy
Language: Greek audio with optional English subtitles
Running Time: 78 minutes
Other titles: O lipotaktis
Region: All

This rarely seen Greek production from 1970 is a fascinating and powerful film about a young soldier who escapes from a seemingly endless war only to find himself trapped in an emotional and sexual battle between two desperate women. One of them, Ermina (played by Italian star Franca Parisi), is stuck in a loveless marriage with a boorish farmer who plans to make his fortune by selling cheap hootch to soldiers. The other - much younger - woman, seems to live in a bizarre and dangerous fantasy world. She is played by famous Greek singing star Alexandra Kyriakaki. The great Gisela Dali "the Greek Brigitte Bardot" also stars in this production, in a small but unforgettable role as a witch who casts a love spell on the soldier.
