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…
