Here’s a little release-day tip for sleaze fanatics and Mondo Macabro types: Synapse Films has just released The Nikkatsu Trailers Collection (also known as the Nikkatsu Roman Porno Trailers Collection) through their sexploitation-oriented sublabel, Impulse.  As the titles indicate, this set collects a series of trailers for the wild sexploitation fare that Japan’s Nikkatsu Studios released during the 1970’s and 1980’s.  Please note that despite the presence of the word “Porno” in the title, this set does not contain any hardcore pornography… but Japan’s unique, frequently disturbing take on the genre is likely to shock those viewers with delicate sensibilities.  Read on for all the sexy-shocker details, including a full list of titles and a description of the extras…

Nikkatsu, Japan’s oldest major movie studio, launched their “Roman Porno” erotic film line in 1971.  Until 1988, the studio released more than one thousand of these films, made in a diverse range of styles and genres aimed squarely at the adult market. Impulse Pictures will be releasing over twenty-five Nikkatsu films, and this amazing trailer collection will give you a taste of these great Japanese sexploitation classics!
