A HOLY PLACE (1990, Yugoslavia, 89 min.)
Director: Ðorde Kadijevic. Cast: Dragan Jovanovic, Branka Pujic, Aleksander Bercek, Mira Banjac.
Language: Serbian. Subtitles: English. Fullscreen.
Based on a literary classic, Nikolai Gogol's 1835 short story, 'Viy'. However, Kadijevic uses it only as a starting point for his own explorations into the dark side of eroticism. Gogol's story deals with Toma, a reluctant theology student who is forced to read the Psalms over an (un)dead girl for three nights in a row. All the while supernatural forces are trying to grab him from the Holy Circle drawn on the church floor. Kadijevic adapts and enriches 'Viy' by inventing a new backstory for the witch-girl and her father. The dead girl, Catherine (unwittingly killed in the prologue, while in the shape of a hag), is referred to as a 'saint' and her father is a harsh and unpleasant man. Kadijevic departs further from the original story, and introduces an excess of perversity and horror more reminiscent of the Anglo-American gothic than the milder Slavic attempts in a similar mode. Original title: “Sveto Mesto”.

Director: Essa Karama. Stars: Abdel Fattah, Ismail Yassin and Lola Sedki.
Language: Arabic. Subtitles: English.
A lame attempt at cashing in on the word-wide success of Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein. Dracula is after the brain of the submissive idiot, Ismail, to transplant it into the monster’s brain. Some scenes follow the Abbot and Costello film very closely. Certainly not a blockbuster but an enjoyable and rarely seen film for fans of the genre who like to collect movies from around the world.  $15

ALICE or THE LAST ESCAPADE (1977, France, 93 min.)
Director: Claude Chabrol. Stars: Sylvia Kristel, Charles Vanel, Jean Carmet and André Dussolier.
Language: French. Subtitles: English.
A young woman leaves her lover and ventures forth in a blinding rainstorm. She becomes entangled in the strange world of an isolated villa populated with people who will not answer questions and who speak in existential riddles.

ALRAUNE (1928, Germany, 108 min. B&W)
Director: Henrik Galeen. Stars: Brigitte Helm, Paul Wegener and Ivan Petrovich.
Language: German title cards with English subtitles.
Hanns Heinz Ewers’ novel had been filmed twice before. Those versions are considered lost. Here, Paul Wegener (“The Golem”) plays the role of Professor Brinken who combines the genes of a murder with those of a prostitute and create the world’s first test-tube baby. The result is a beautiful woman who is simply incapable of feeling any real emotion. She sets out in her adulthood to seduce and destroy every male who crosses her path.
Remade again in 1930 with Brigitte Helm reprising the same role, and again in 1952 with Hildegard Knef.

ALRAUNE (1930, Germany, 103 min., B&W)
Director: Richard Oswald. Stars: Brigitte Helm, Albert Bassermann, Harald Paulsen and Bernhard Goetzke.
Language: German. Subtitles: English.
This 1930 version of the German fantasy classic "Alraune" is a more faithful adaptation of the book than its more famous 1928 silent film predecessor and follows very much the story line of its literary source. Brigitte Helm, one of Europe's most intriguing vamps of the 20s and early 30s this time gives a different interpretation of the same part she had in the silent version two years earlier. She not only portrays Alraune, the artificially created girl who brings down men by the dozens, but also her mother, a prostitute who agrees to take part in an experiment of artificial insemination and even performs as a singer in a bar. In this film Alraune feels remorse about her deeds.
The film, much more than the silent version, is a daring mix of sex and crime and must have been rather scandalous at its time.
Unforunately, the image quality of this version is not up to par with what CFV prefers to offer. However, it is a very rare film to find and so it is offered for completists who want the pleasure of seeing this once lost classic. This version stems from Denmark and has Dannish subtitles with English subtitles very legible over top of them. 
$15 (Quality is about a 7/10 on this one but it is extremely rare. I've searched all over for the source of it with no luck.)

ALRAUNE (1952, W. GERMANY, 90 min. B&W)
Director: Arthur Maria Rabenalt. Stars: Hildergard Knef, Erich von Stroheim and Carlheinz Bohm.
Language: German. Subtitles: Optional English. Extras: Trailer.
Erich von Stroheim plays Prof. Brinken, a scientist who plays “God” and creates the world’s first test-tube baby.
Now fully grown, Alraune (Knef) is a beautiful but soulless creature whose way with the opposite sex threatens to ensnare the Professor’s nephew (Bohm). Filmed twice before in 1928 and 1930 with Brigitte Helm as the leading character. This is the complete 1952 original German print.

Language: English. Subtitles: none. Widescreen.
A cult classic! Most likely due to the addition of William Shatner in this German made pseudo- documentary.  A highly visual excursion around the world from Easter Island to Baalbak and more. This theatrically released film (amazingly not made-for-TV), explores many ancient mysteries surrounding various gods and alien visitations to our planet. Shatner takes the viewer around the world to several astounding archaeological sites and then shows us impossible artifacts from the past. Shatner interviews several 1970’s figures including well known psychic Jeane Dixon.  $18
