    Two American exploitation films are making their hi-def debuts from UK label Network this September, one of them being released on home video for the first time ever!

    September 3rd: Miss Leslie's Dolls (1973)

    [​IMG]

    This movie was thought to be lost, but has been recently found and restored for this release!

    Stranded in the backwoods during a thunderstorm, a beautiful teacher and her three promiscuous students take refuge at a lonely house owned by the middle-aged Miss Leslie. Miss Leslie, however, is less a mild-mannered spinster and more an axe-wielding, homicidal cross-dresser intent on transferring his spirit into the nubile body of any girl foolish enough to come visiting…

    [​IMG]

    A grim police detective embarks on a one-man crusade to track down a depraved sex maniac when a nightclub dancer receives a disturbing series of obscene phone calls. Finding himself getting far too close to the victim for comfort, the hard-boiled cop must track down the unbalanced pervert before he can carry out his sick threats…

    These look fantastic, especially Miss Leslie's Dolls! Plus, both releases are region free, so they should work on all blu-ray players.

    I wonder if any of the US labels have plans for these, or if I should go ahead and order?

    Pre-ordered Miss Leslie's Dolls a little while ago and also plan on getting Who Killed Teddy Bear, I hadn't heard of either until they were announced but both sound promising.

    I pre-ordered Miss Leslie's Dolls about a month ago. Never heard of it before but I liked the cover art and synopsis.
