HotMovies Premieres Command Cinema Classic 'October Silk'
Producer/director Cecil Howard agreed with HotMovies to screen the film in pay-per-minute and streaming rental formats for an exclusive one-month run.
As with most of Howard's movies from the 1980s, "Silk" has never seen a DVD release.
"Howard's movies are all special," said James Cybert, HotMovies director of business development.
"They all have the right mix of plotting and eroticism, just enough lead-in to get the audience invested for the good stuff. What we really liked about this one is the amazing lineup of ten golden age starlets at their absolute hottest."
Featuring a cast of '80s talent headlined by Abigail Clayton, Candida Royale, Howard favorite Samantha Fox, and Lisa DeLeuew, the movie took home Hustler’s prize for Film of the Year in 1981 and was also voted as the top movie of the year by the magazine’s fans and the N.Y. Critics Group.
Gloria Leonard, Arcadia Lake, Merle Michaels, Christine de Schaeffer, Christie Ford and Tara Smith round out the cast of workers and guests at the boutique that serves as the main setting in the film, which was produced by Howard and directed by the late Henri Pachard.
The movie, said Howard, came about because of the success of another movie found exclusively on HotMovies.com.
"I was having lunch with Henri Pachard one day and we decided for kicks to team up and make a movie together," he said.
"The result was the famous, award-winning "Babylon Pink." Because of the humongous success we had with that, we decided to go at it one more time."
Additional HotMovies exclusives from Command Cinema include Dangerous Stuff,Neon Nights, Platinum Paradise, Scoundrels, Star Angel, The Last X-Rated Movie and Foxtrot.
