'Belladonna of Sadness' NSFW Trailer


NSFW TRAILER for the 4k restoration of 'Belladonna of Sadness,' the forgotten 1973 psychedelic animation masterpiece that was never released in the US!

It is the third and last of the adult-oriented Animerama trilogy produced by the “Godfather of Manga” Osamu Tezuka and directed by his longtime collaborator Eiichi Yamamoto (Astro Boy). Based on the book Satanism and Witchcraft by French writer Jules Michelet, young and innocent Jeanne is ravaged by the local lord and makes a pact with the Devil himself. The Devil--voiced by legendary actor Tatsuya Nakadai (Ran, The Human Condition)--appears in phallic forms and, through Jeanne, incites the village into a sexual frenzy. In a new restoration using the original camera negatives, this erotic and psychedelic trip of a film springs to life.

The film has been newly restored by Cinelicious Pics using the original 35mm camera negative and sound elements – and including over 8 minutes of surreal and explicit footage cut from the negative.

Sit back and be utterly spellbound by the trailer for this forgotten masterpiece!
