The Lickerish Quartet movie scene

The sexy stylings of Radley Metzger are on display in The Lickerish Quartet.

Following the colorful re-issue of Radley Metzger’s colorful 1970s erotic favorite Score! in the fall of 2010, Cult Epics released two other Metzger films on Blu-ray and DVD. The Lickerish Quartet (1970) was available on April 26, 2011, and Camille 2000 (1969) on June 14, 2011. Both movies carry the list prices of $34.98 and $29.98.

In The Lickerish Quartet, an aristocratic family becomes obsessed with a striking blond actress (Silvano Venturelli) while watching her in what appears to be a crude, silent stag film. After a visit to a local carnival, they meet the girl in person and invite her back to their mansion, upon which time she takes turns seducing the family members and unlocking their fantasies, family secrets and hidden desires.

The Lickerish Quartet Blu-ray and DVD contain the following bonus features:

  • commentary by director Radley Metzger and film historian Michael Bowen
  • making-of featurette
  • “Cool” version love scenes
  • Giving Voice to the Quartet: Location Sound vs. Dubbed Soundtrack

In Camille 2000, sensual Marguerite (Daniele Guabert), who’s addicted to sex and money, is kept by a wealthy man in a luxurious village, where she has a string of young lovers. When she falls in love with the handsome bachelor Armand (Nino Castelnuova), he insists on absolute fidelity. Knowing by her reputation, Armand’s controlling father soon intervenes, triggering a tragic turn of events.

Here are the Camille 2000 Blu-ray and DVD features:

  • commentary by director Radley Metzger and film historian Michael Bowen
  • On the Set of Camille 20o0: 35-minute featurette
  • Syviane’s Bare Striptease (cut from the feature before release)
