This is one of those early Adult features that now looks like a product of the times
Robert Guermontes 1971 Dark Dreams is a post Manson adult film that mixes some interesting ideas
Into a oddball Triple X feature with Horror elements

Thanks to the fine people at Vinegar Syndrome
Fans/Collector’s are given a chance to discover a film lost by time

Good luck finding any HQ previous format version
Scanned and restored in 2k from 35mm negative it looks amazing
The PQ is super impressive for a film from 1971
If you play it in a blu-ray player up converted it could pass as a blu-ray!
I doubt this film will look any better then it does now

At this time both Tina Russell and Harry Reems were massive legitimate Stars that could draw in theaters
But, could they break through into the mainstream?

A newlywed couple drives through the woods, barely able to keep their hands off each other. But when their car breaks down they find that the only house for miles is haunted! They are taken in by a witch who serves them a strange brew. The bride passes out, and the groom is lured away by a busty blonde. A hooded warlock abducts the bride – and she is subjected to a dose of bondage and lesbian loving! Meanwhile, the groom is seduced by one wanton vixen after another He’s oblivious to his new wife’s erotic induction into witchcraft which culminates in a wild orgy that seals their fates forever!

The film walks this strange fueled line
You can tell Roger Guermantes was inspired by Rosemary’s Baby
witchcraft meets xxx (While it’s easy to knock this film, why bother?)
Mixing the two was and is a gimmick But, for this time it was very unique
Trying to make a break out mainstream adult feature in 1971 was ambitious
