In 1963, nudie/roughie filmmakers Bob Cresse and Lee Frost (HOUSE ON BARE MOUNTAIN, LOVE CAMP 7) saw the U.S. grosses of MONDO CANE and quickly imported and adapted one of the most provocative – and successful – shockumentaries of the decade. Narrated by Academy Award® winner George Sanders (ALL ABOUT EVE) and featuring a legendary soundtrack by Riz Ortolani (Oscar®-nominated for MONDO CANE’s ‘More’), ECCO explores a world of sadism, delinquency, roller derby, extreme piercing, appalling stereotypes and the infamous Lapland-women-castrating-reindeer-with-their- teeth sequence, now scanned in 4k from the original internegative. Bonus feature THE FORBIDDEN is Frost & Cresse’s rarely seen – and totally insane –1966 fake Mondo, packed with staged scenes of Swiss lesbians, L.A. rapists, Parisian tarts and Nazi strippers, newly-transferred from the only known 35mm print in existence.

“ECCO is one of the best Mondos… Imagery that is bizarre, shocking and insane!” -Worldwide Celluloid Massacre

“‘THE FORBIDDEN’ is an exploitation classic… It’s hard to believe that Cresse and Frost can pack so much wacky entertainment into 65 minutes!” -DVD Drive In
