Original and Uncensored Versions of Radley Metzger's 1972 Bisexual Classic Debut on High-Definition DVD and Blu-ray this Fall

LOS ANGELES ( September 15, 2010 ) — Interview said director Radley Metzger "hilariously hits the "bull's-eye of bisexual chic" in the magazine's 1972 review of SCORE, one of the first mass-market erotic films to explore couples that swing both ways. A generation later, the film still stands out not only for its lively storytelling and imaginative sex scenes, but also for devoting nearly equal time to heterosexual and gay relationships.

Cult Epics proudly presents two versions of Metzger's erotic classic this fall, both appearing on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time ever. The original film will be available October 26, preceded on October 12 by a never-before-released uncensored version that contains seven additional minutes of adult scenes. The Original and Uncensored editions of SCORE will be available at retailers for a list price of $29.95 ( DVD ) and $34.95 ( Blu-ray ) .

The print used for both versions has been newly restored ensuring a crisp high-definition transfer. The extras for both editions include a behind-the-scenes featurette and a new interview with featured actress Lynn Lowry, plus commentary by Metzger and film historian Michael Bowen.

The Cinefamily, a group dedicated to spotlighting interesting and unusual films, will host a special screening of the Uncensored version of SCORE at 8 p.m. Sunday, November 7 at the Silent Movie Theatre in Los Angeles ( 611 North Fairfax Avenue ) . A Q&A session featuring Metzger will follow the film.

Soho News described SCORE as: "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf gone hardcore and hilarious"; Playgirl declared: "Something for everybody"; and Women's Wear Daily said: "It makes voyeurism seem artistic."

Cult Epics will continue to spotlight Metzger's work next year with plans to release two more of the director's critically acclaimed erotic films on DVD and Blu-ray. The Lickerish Quartet is due out in January 2011, followed in April by an extended version of Camille 2000.

For additional information regarding SCORE please contact Christoph Buerger at ( 323 ) 868-7611 or .


SCORE is based on a 1971 hit Off-Broadway play that starred 25-year-old Sylvester Stallone in the role of Mike, the horny telephone repairman, played in the film by Carl Parker. The film follows the erotic exploits of a happily married swinging couple ( Claire Wilbur and Gerald Grant ) who make a bet that they can seduce a couple of naïve young newlyweds during a weekend get-together at their luxury Riviera Villa. The young couple is played by Lynn Lowry, who starred in the horror classics The Crazies and I Drink Your Blood, and Cal Culver, who became an early gay icon thanks to his standout performance in 1971's Boys in the Sand.
