It's class man !!
on 4 January 2004
I am no film critic/reviewer, but there are some films that you never get sick of watching, and in my (so called) mind this makes a good film !
I think this dvd is in the genre of "Giallo" which is an Italian crime story/thriller, like an Alfred Hitchcock book/film, but with graphic violence (which is excellent !! not really the type of cinematic violence which is repulsive, it's never real enough to actually upset you).
The story is about a group of Italian girls who leave the city after the upsetting death of their friend, only to find that impending death has followed them.
It's not a complicated film at all, it's an enjoyable thriller/whodunnit.
I like the fact that all the fashions and cars are from the 60/70's, the film is seedy but enjoyable in a "Scooby Doo" type of way !
It's basically cheap and nasty, but it has such class !! and style, it's very enjoyable and sometimes there are some great (directorial) "shots", like when the killer is stalking his victim through the foggy woods, displaying a menacing silouette, lense flare and also 60's flared trousers!!
Or shots of young "sexy chicks" zooming around Italy in a mini !
Hmmm who did it ?? who is the murderer ?? why ??!?
The music is cool, sleazy jazz in a 70's styley, european slow tempo'd jazz trumpet, saxophone, going into hippy acoustic guitars and flutes !! yea !!! get stoned !! free sex
(or is that what happens ?)
I love this film, ultimately it's daft, but it's great fun, and it's really well made, and the HUGE benefit of having it on DVD, is that you can see the film the way the director intended, in beautiful clear colour, instead of watching a wonky vhs that your mate copied 4000 times, with no colour left in it.
I give this DVD 5 stars !!
