PLEASURES OF THE DAMNED
(1979, Antonello Giallo, www.direwitfilms.com)

When a group of Satan worshiping bikers seek out a book holding the secrets of eternal life, they accidentally resurrect an ancient evil. Private Investigator, Jack Steele is the only man who might be able to put a stop to this ancient curse.

Pleasures of the Damned first premiered in Italy in the summer of 1979, and the director was brought up on indecency charges by the Italian government. All copies of the film were initially presumed destroyed. Hard to find, and long sought after at horror conventions, this campy cult classic has finally been digitally mastered and restored.
