“Joe Sarno does a suburban witchcraft movie with shades of Fellini and John Waters.”
— rkellner, LETTERBOXD
From the mind of legendary filmmaker Joe Sarno comes RED ROSES OF PASSION, a lurid, supernaturally-tinged story of lust and violence. Carla is fed up with her dull home life, living a prudish existence with her spinster aunt. After being introduced to a tarot reader, Carla quickly finds herself involved with a mysterious sect known as The Cult of Pan, who have learned to harness the carnal powers of roses to entrap men into sexual liaisons. But as Carla delves deeper into the occult world, the true and much more sinister motives of the cult start to become apparent. Regarded as one of Sarno's finest films and shot in beautiful black and white by future arthouse auteur Tony Lover (DISTANCE), RED ROSES OF PASSION is an otherworldly underground classic.
