HotMovies.com Debuts Girlfriends Films Release for the New Year
As the calendar marks the passing of another year, HotMovies.com will continue its impressive run of premieres and exclusives by debuting Twisted Passions 7: Lamoyne Hotel, the latest groundbreaking work from leading lesbian studio Girlfriends Films, on January 1, 2013.
Girlfriends Films creator and CEO Dan O’Connell is continuing the tradition of debuting an Internet only release with HotMovies.com for the New Year. “This is our third such debut with HotMovies and the responses to Poor Little Shylain 2011 and Poor Little Shyla 2 in 2012 were incredible” he said. “Twisted Passions 7 reveals the seedier side of Thornhill, the mythological town where many Girlfriends Films movies take place. Lamoyne Hotel re-imagines the traditional cathouse as a place where sexually starved women can fulfill their lesbian fantasies.”
Starring Amber Chase, Sabrina Deep, Dylan Ryan, Elexis Monroe, Cherie Deville, Rain DeGrey, Bree Daniels and Veronica Snow, Twisted Passions 7: Lamoyne Hotel promises drama, passion and smoldering sex. It expands the world of Thornhill and, according to O’Connell, should be the first of many adventures in the town’s previously unseen Red Light District.
“Doing a Video On Demand pre-release before we eventually make this movie available on DVD makes sense as we have found these movies achieve legendary status on the Internet,” O’Connell said. “That helps us sell more pieces in stores, and meanwhile we will have capitalized on the VOD market in the best possible way.”
HotMovies.com director of business development James Cybert points out the Internet-only debut is becoming an industry standard. “Ed Powers has been extremely successful bringing back his Dirty Debutantes line exclusively on HotMovies websites and anticipation was high for Evil Angel’s Voracious, which was only recently released for broad distribution” he said. “Producers have learned that VOD releases lower costs and distribution headaches, and build serious buzz for any title that may later hit the shelves of brick and mortar establishments. I’m thrilled our success with the Shyla movies inspired Girlfriends Films to give us this amazing opportunity to break new ground with a new video line. It’s all part of the evolution of distribution, and I know we’ll have much more in store in 2013.”
