"A MUCH MORE SURREAL REPULSION"
--THE WORLDWIDE CELLULOID MASSACRE


original Greek title EYPIAIKH B.A. 2037 [Euridice B.A. 2037]

director: Nikos Nikolaidis
starrring Vera Tschechowa John Moore Niki Triantafillidi

This debut film from director Nikos Nikolaidis is inspired by the Greek legend of Orpheus and Euridice, the mythological tale of warrior Orpheus who attempts to rescue his lover Euridice - now banished to the pits of Hell with her memory erased - after she dies from a snake bite. For this movie, Eurodice is the center of attention, as she is confined to a never-ending terrorized existence inside strange house as she awaits a 'transfer' or a 'rescue' or, maybe, an execution. Her days repeat and intertwine as beautiful Euridice faces fears, hallucinations, and memories activated by constant abuse, disorientation and bizarre sexual gratification.

Nikos Nikolaidis will be remembered as one of the world's great filmmakers. Cult fans know him best for the uncompromisingly grotesque SINGAPORE SLING, but his filmography is filled with many other masterworks including SEE YOU IN HELL, MY DARLING and SWEET BUNCH. In a 2006 interview, Nikos said "EURIDICE remains my favorite film...It is probably my best." Interestingly, his final film ZERO YEARS is a controversial loose remake. Sadly, Mr Nikolaidis died from Pulmonary Edema at age 67 in September 2007.

This special package also includes a rare short film (10 minutes)
by Nikos Nikolaidis called LACRIMAC RERUM [Tears of Things].

A Greek film with optional English subtitles, uncut 101 min, widescreen,
encoded for ALL REGION, playable on any American DVD machine.
Extras include the debut short film LACRIMAC RERUM (10 minutes)
