Admittedly neither All the Sins of Sodom nor Vibrations were my particular cup of tea but the visuals in both films are striking including the opening shot in Sins (as shown on the front cover). This is the second edition in the “Joseph W. Sarno Retrospective Series” and seems like a fine release.

ABOUT THIS RELEASE


All the Sins of Sodom
Encouraged by his agent, Henning, a struggling New York City photographer, begins a daring portfolio of his model, Leslie (MARIA LEASE). But all too soon, jealousies erupt when another model vies for his camera and bed in this study of ambition, romance and lust set inside the world of fashion photography.

Vibrations
Aspiring writer Barbara (MARIA LEASE) moves to Manhattan to jump-start her career and sex life, but ends up typing manuscripts. Alone at night, she listens to the sound of her sexy neighbor as she entertains herself and friends with the aid of her vibrator. When her extroverted sister, Julie (MARIANNE PREVOST), comes to town, Barbara is forced to confront her repressed sexual desires.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 2.0/5


This single-disc release comes with a 16-Page booklet. Both movies comes with Audio Commentaries with Film Historian Tim Lucas and Peggy Steffans-Sarno and an Interview with writer/director Joe Sarno.

 



VIDEO – 4.0/5


Both movies are presented with a 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and given a 1080p high-definition transfer with new 2K digital restoration. The films are in nice black and white where details are fairly sharp in most scenes though other shots were on the softer side and there were specs, dust and other general film damage, but nothing overly extensive. Otherwise, these are good looking transfers.

AUDIO – 3.5/5


The films each comes with a DTS-HD Master Audio Stereo tracks which aren’t anything amazing but showcases clear enough dialogue levels throughout and I didn’t notice any instances hisses and pops.

 


OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, admittedly neither All the Sins of Sodom nor Vibrations were my particular cup of tea but the visuals in both films are striking including the opening shot in Sins (as shown on the front cover). This is the second edition in the “Joseph W. Sarno Retrospective Series” and seems like a fine release. The Blu-ray itself has good video/audio transfers though the features are on the limited side.
