Details

Produced in the backyard of the Swedish film industry, these sexually daring films join countless sensational Swedish movies dealing with shocking or taboo subjects—street punks, space aliens, hard drugs, and drunken vikings. Other efforts are simply too strange and Swedish to ignore. Once again, Swedish Death Metal author Daniel Ekeroth delves into the arcane culture of his homeland, returning with the first comprehensive overview of “Sensationsfilms”—Swedish Exploitation Cinema.

Features over 200 reviews of strange and sexy Swedish films

Full-color insert features rare vintage film posters and lobby cards.

“Filled with skin and sin, the rabid hellhounds of Euro trash cinema will rejoice in getting their killer kicks from yet another exploitation avenue rife for exploration.”—Cool Ass Cinema

“A multifaceted account of the sensational sleaze of the ’60s and beyond”—Fangoria

“Interesting and well-researched… If a movie was made in Sweden from 1951 to 1993, and included an abundance of sex, violence or weirdness, Daniel has tracked it down, trapped it, stunned it, reviewed it, researched it, and reported back to you the reader with how he feels about it. You need a Swede to traverse these sinful waters, and Ekeroth is paddling at full throttle.”—Robin Bougie, Cinema Sewer

“Where else are you going to learn about films like Dirty Fingers, Scorched Heat, The Guesthoust Of Evil, Mona’s Secret Sex Dreams and the wonderfully titled How Marie Met Fredrik, Rebus The Donkey, Ploj The Kangeroo, And…“—RockShockPop.com
