Cult Epics has been doing some noteworthy work this year with the back catalog of artsy erotica specialist Radley Metzger.  If you have not yet checked out this series, you can pick up a nice one-stop sampler of their efforts via the new Erotica Psychedelica box.  This set contains the theatrical-version blu-ray discs for Score, The Lickerish Quartet and Camille 2000.  All three are identical in content to their stand-alone releases but this box adds a few new extras in the form of a full-color booklet with essays by Metzger and Mondo Digital scribe Nathaniel Thompson plus a CD featuring music from all three films.  Read on for all the stylized-sexiness details…
