House on the Edge of the Park

Sat 18 Nov 23:40

Alex (David Hess) is a charismatic psychopath who, with his equally unhinged sidekick (Giovanni Lombardo Radice), turns a get-together of chic New Yorkers into an ordeal of class warfare and sexual violence. Annie Belle, Christian Borromeo, and Lorraine De Selle co-star in this notorious video nasty from the screenwriters of The New York Ripper. Restored uncut in 4K from the original 35mm negative by Severin Films.

We’ve shown our fair share of grimy Italian exploitation over the years, but quite possibly none come close to House on the Edge of the Park for sheer infamy and degradation. A video nasty, the film was only passed uncut by the BBFC last year, and is not for the faint hearted.
