(aka "Love After Death")


Directed by Glauco Del Mar
Argentina 1968


An inter-dimensional portal exists between Herk Harvey’s CARNIVAL OF SOULS and Doris Wishman’s BAD GIRLS GO TO HELL . . . and it’s called LOVE AFTER DEATH. This is the story of Montel -- a sexually frustrated creep who seeks revenge on his cheating wife after she accidentally buries him alive. Produced somewhere in South America and remixed for American audiences by New York producer Charles Abrams, LOVE AFTER DEATH is a joyously deranged gem that features equal doses of gothic horror, sleazy melodrama, and absurdist experimentation. After watching this movie, you’ll never look at Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Premature Burial” the same way again.

Shot in New York by LOVE AFTER DEATH producer Charles Abrams and starring adult film princess Jennifer Welles, THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE BEAUTIFUL is an unknown jewel from the bizarro underground. The movie centers around the estate of a politician, where blackmail and scissor-murders go hand in hand with smoking weed and fetish whippings. Combining a trashy paperback feel with gutter-goth mood, this psychosexual spectacle would feel right at home with the work of exploitation auteur Joe Sarno.


During a cataleptic fit, Montel is buried alive, a burial plotted by his greedy wife Sofia with several men, including her lover, Montel's doctor. Exiting his grave, Montel goes on a sexual rampage. When the conspirators engage in gun play at an abandoned castle, Montel arrives to stab the doctor and strangle Sofia, followed by the revelation that he is actually dead.


Theatrical Release: October 21st, 1968

ADDITION: AGFA Blu-ray (May 2021): AGFA (American Genre Film Archive) presents "Love After Death" (aka "Unsatisfied Love") on a dual-layered Blu-ray. The 1968 Argentinean undead skin-flick takes up about 17GB. This is a 2K preservation from the only known 35mm print in existence. "Love After Death" showcases a rather impressive amount of detail, given the time and condition of the source material (there is a significant amount of scratching and wear on the print). As an added bonus, AGFA has included a second full-length feature. "The Good, The Bad, and the Beautiful" takes up another 19GB of the Blu-ray disc, and both pictures feature a supportive bitrate throughout their respective running times. The latter film is a 2K preservation from the only known 16mm print in existence. Due to the softer nature of the 16mm, the film lacks the finer details that "Love After Death" has in spades (regardless of the damage). While any meticulous restoration seems to have been avoided, the resulting damage marks only give the film a film-like texture, adding to the campy drive-in nature of both pictures.

"Love After Death" on AGFA's new
Blu-ray features a DTS-HD Master audio 1.0 mono track in 16 bit. Thankfully the audio doesn't seem to have suffered as much as the damaged picture, with only a low and inconspicuous hiss, with the music and dialogue being intelligible, if a little muddled. "The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful" features another reasonably intelligible audio track, also in 16-bit 1.0 mono DTS-HD Master audio. Both scores are uncredited and could possibly just be public domain sound cues, both quite jazzy and era-specific. There are optional English subtitles for both feature films on this Region 'Free' Blu-ray from AGFA.

Two shorts are included as extras here on the
Blu-ray, "Cemetery Sales" is a 25-minute piece from the Eastland Memorial Park, and is quite a time capsule. A sales piece on choosing an afterlife plot may sound rather morbid but this is worth checking out despite the subject matter. "The Greening of Willie Gobblee" is an unseen student short film from the 'Something Weird' vaults. "Sex and Death Trailers" is my favorite bonus feature here (not including the second full-length movie "The Good, The Bad, and the Beautiful") and it consists of 11.5-minutes of sexploitation trailers from the 50's and 60's. This Region 'Free' Blu-ray from AGFA also features reversible cover artwork (see below.)

Fans of late 60's- early 70's sexploitation will certainly get a kick out of this new
Blu-ray release from AGFA (American Genre Film Archive). Both films are 2K preservations from the only known 35mm and 16mm prints in existence. The level of campiness on display would make John Waters happy, while the trailers and short films only add to the attractiveness of this release. Recommended.
