The Film
Things start off with a few straight forward reels filled with more facials than the local salon before we get into a home invasion rape, some lesbian scenes and orgies, this collection of short stag films is pretty crucial for your collection of vintage skin flicks. This is the type of thing you might want to grab a couple bottles of wine and throw on with that special someone for a bit of a different evening. Or you can close the windows and enjoy it by yourself.

The 42nd STREET FOREVER series has featured from just about every genre under the sun with trailer and short film compilations. There may be no releases more historically significant to fringe cinema in the line than the volumes of the PEEP SHOW COLLECTIONS.

The Audio & Video
These short films have been taken from 8mm reels, remastered in HD and transferred to DVD for the first time by Impulse Pictures. The materials have been kept in decent condition for their age and subject matter. Scratches and other light deterioration are the norm here but I wouldn't have it any other way. These reels will likely never look better. There was no sound recorded for these films so they're silent aside from the sound of the projector running them. 

The Extras
Liner notes from Cinema Sewer publisher Robin Bougie are included

The Bottom Line
Its grimy, its a bit beat up and its just the way you think of something under the 42nd STREET FOREVER banner.
