Impulse Pictures to Release Nikkatsu Classic LOVE HUNTER ON Blu-ray/DVD July 28, 2020!
Like you, the team here at Impulse Pictures has been staying safe at home to help flatten the curve and stop the spread of COVID-19.Â As we await the reopening of our offices in Michigan and of our replicator and warehouse facilities in San Francisco we’re staying anything but idle during this lock down as we’ve been busy at work on a slew of new releases.Â OurÂ July 28, 2020Â release of Nikkatsu’sÂ LOVE HUNTERÂ is just one of the many titles we’ll have in the marketplace once the teams at Synapse Films/Impulse Pictures and our distributor, CAV Distribution, can finally get back to releasing the best in cult cinema in high-quality Blu-rays.Â Among the additional titles nearing completion are THE LIVING DEAD AT MANCHESTER MORGUE, Josh Becker’s RUNNING TIME (starring Bruce Campbell), Roger Nygard’s SUCKERS (starring Lori Loughlin) and Nikkatsu’s STAR OF DAVID along with several others that we hope to have out before the end of 2020.Â But in the meantime…
Twenty-year-old Kazuo is in love with his college girlfriend, Hisako, but he canât help but be intrigued by a mysterious older woman named Kyoku, a promiscuous woman unsatisfied with her marriage. As time goes on, both Kazuo and Hisako are pulled into the seemingly rules free, borderless world of Kyoku â with all of its many pains and pleasures.
LOVE HUNTERÂ is a landmark film in Nikkatsuâs history. Not only is it one of their earliest âRoman Pornoâ erotic productions, but it was so controversial for the time that director Yamaguchi and some executives of Nikkatsu Films were arrested. Employees of Eirin, the Japanese equivalent of the MPAA, were even indicted for allowing the release of this film! It took eight long years for all to be acquitted of the obscenity charges. Nikkatsu Films provided Impulse Pictures with a brand-new high-definition master of this unexpected and seductive classic.
Impulse Pictures is proud to present THE NIKKATSU FILMS COLLECTION, a continuing series of critically acclaimed, classic âeroductionsâ designed to shock and titillate fans of Japanese erotic cinema.
