CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Adult film distributor Pure Play Media has released "Sex Rituals of the Occult," a Video-X-Pix classic from 1970 directed by Robert Caramico.

Video-X-Pix, a studio that specializes in adult films from the '70s and '80s, has given Pure Play Media the distribution rights for its titles; Pure Play Media has been distributing its titles since early 2009.

"Our movies came from a period of big budgets, exotic locations and premiere parties for new releases," Steven Morowitz of Video-X-Pix said. "If you take the sex out, you have a drama, mystery, comedy or even a musical left. Some of the talent were really pursuing acting, trying out for off-Broadway plays when they weren't shooting. We feel our new relationship with Pure Play is a match made in heaven. I love what they do and what they stand for."

Pure Play Media CEO Richard Arnold added that, "[Video-X-Pix] is a great studio that has roots dating back decades, but was resurrected a few years ago. I am very excited about this studio as it gives Pure Play the rights to distribute one of the best classic studios in the business, which just happens to be run by a couple of the best people in the industry."

"Sex Rituals of the Occult," released direct-to-retail on March 9, "ventures into the rarely seen worlds of witchcraft, voodoo, black mass and more," according to the company. DVD extras include a 35mm slide show, classic trailers and an interview with Ron Jeremy.
