No films better represent the 1970s midnight movie phenomenon as Reefer Madness and Sex Madness: two finger-wagging camp classics that hysterically warned the public of the horrors of marijuana and syphilis. But the more we discover about the exploitation genre, the more we learn the true hep cats were the ones who made the films: ruthless opportunists who produced raunchy, ribald melodramas loaded with sex, drugs, and violence, and enabled them to be shown by wrapping them in a tissue-thin pseudoeducational message. These two essential cult favorites are presented in definitive editions, meticulously restored from 35mm elements.


Blu-ray Extras Include:

Audio commentary for Reefer Madness by Eric Schaefer, author of Bold! Daring! Shocking True! A History of Exploitation Films, 1919-1959

Assassin of Youth (abridged version)

High on the Range (1924, excerpt)

Gallery of exploitation trailers, including Reefer Madness, Cocaine Fiends, Marihuana: Weed With Roots in Hell, Narcotic, and more

Radio spots: The Narcotic Story, Reefer Ruin, Metamorphosis and the Weed
