In the tradition of Barbarella and Danger: Diabolik comes the swinging ’60s action orgy The Girl from Rio.

In the 1969 flick, bisexual super-villain Sumuru (the luscious Shirley Eaton of Goldfinger) launches a diabolical plan to enslave the male species with her army of lusty warrior women. But when Sumuru kidnaps a fugitive American playboy, she crosses a sadistic crime boss (George Sanders, All About Eve) and ignites a battle of the sexes that will bring Brazil to its knees in more ways than one.

Richard Wyler (The Bounty Killer) and Maria Rohm (Eugenie) co-star in this kinky cult favorite from producer Harry Alan Towers (Marquis De Sade’s Justine) and director Jess Franco (Venus in Furs). Also known as Rio 70, Future Women and The Seven Secrets of Sumuru, The Girl from Rio is now presented in a new 4K restoration from the original camera negative in its complete uncut and uncensored form in Dolby Vision HDR!
