THE EMBALMER

Help AGFA’s non-profit mission by purchasing a piece of home video history for a donation of 99 cents -- or pay-what-you-want!

In the 1990s, Something Weird Video revolutionized the home video landscape by unleashing thousands of outlaw exploitation films on VHS. To this day, some of these mega-rare tapes include the best-available versions of movies that have fallen into a black hole of neglect. AGFA is thrilled to digitize and share some of our favorite titles from the Something Weird tape collection -- newly transferred from the original S-VHS masters.

A forgotten proto-giallo from Italy, THE EMBALMER (1965) is the wild story of a skull-faced slasher who wears a monk robe while stalking victims along the canals of Venice. What more could you want out of a movie?

This is a digital transfer of Something Weird’s vintage master tape, complete with supplemental trailers and shorts. It will not be released on home video by AGFA and is only available here.
