Description by OLDIES.com:
Journey into the mind of the undead as a talking mummy guides us on a grand tour of the timeless "battle of the sexes" between man and woman. A cult classic from Executive Producer Richard Gordon (Fiend Without A Face, Island Of Terror), Bizarre is an offbeat anthology film that certainly defies description. An interesting mix of sex, horror and humor filmed in varied styles, this is one of the strangest films you are ever likely to see. Includes deleted footage never before seen in the U.S.
A British cult classic produced by notorious exploitation maverick Robert Gordon (FIEND WITHOUT A FACE, DEVIL DOLL), BIZARRE takes an anthological tour of the reputed "battle of the sexes." Hosted by a thousand-year-old mummy who's been around long enough to know what he's talking about, audiences are party to a series of vignettes illustrating the lengths humans will go to in order to gain sexual pleasure. Tracing this ultimate mission throughout its evolution over the centuries, the anthology features go-go dancers being pelted with vegetables, and a ménage-a trois comprised of a nerd, a beautiful call girl, and a pet lizard, and a male model being tortured. By turns gruesome and hilarious, the film more than lives up to its moniker, and this restored version, originally released in the UK as THE SECRETS OF SEX, contains footage not previously seen in the US.
