Her role as Miss Moneypenny in the lamentable James Bond spoof CASINO ROYALE may have set hearts a flutter, but it was for her part in classic Italian shockers like BLACK BELLY OF THE TARANTULA and DON T TORTURE A DUCKLING that cemented Barbara Bouchet s status as one of the most libidinous icons of Euro-cult cinema.
Happily, Silvio Amadio s saucy thriller AMUCK! fits snugly into this giallo-centric category too, and here Bouchet stars as Greta; a nubile young secretary under the recent employment of the cravat-wearing Richard (Farley Granger ROPE). Partial to the occasional bout of swinging along with his wanton wife Eleanora (Rosalba Neri SLAUGHTER HOTEL), Richard also seems to harbour a dark secret: the mysterious whereabouts of his missing former assistant, Sally, whom Greta knows very intimately indeed...
With its blend of leeringly-lensed slow motion sex scenes and slick spectacle, AMUCK! is an erotically charged masterclass in murder and deception, brought lovingly to life in high definition thanks to those lovable deviants at 88 Films!

and a 3 for the film in itself. a not so interesting murder mystery thriller. But what it has is a great location in Venice beautifully shot
in warm colors and .... the lovely Barbara Bouchet is in almost every scene in the film. OK, that automatically makes it a 4 for the film.
And, i almost forgot, it has Rosalba Neri in it too, so a definitive 4 it is. A couple of weeks has passed since i saw it when writing this
and i've forgotten most about the slightly giallo-esque and dull murder mystery, but what i remember is 1. Barbara Bouchet 2. her
slow-motion sexscene with Neri, and 3. the crisp photography from and outside of Venice.
88 Films (i love you guys, please continue with your great work) don't have tons of extras but what they have are the Right one's.
Two really nice interviews with these iconic genre cult actresses, both in their 70's by now. Bouchet is hilarious and smart, and Neri
is so warm and friendly i want her as my mother, and with a good memory too. Also, there's a Q&A with the funny Bouchet
88 Films’ new blu ray release is wonderful. The picture is beautiful, having been drawn from a very clean camera negative. There is almost no print damage and stability is never an issue. Colour and detail are very strong, and there is a lovely, natural, consistent layer of fine grain throughout. Audio, predictably, is less impressive, with very limited dynamic range. As a replication of the original sound, it’s perfectly serviceable.
Extras-wise, there are interviews with both of the aforementioned actresses, neither of which are particularly fun. There’s also a reversible sleeve with original and new artwork, both of which are pretty cool.
If you’re a giallo collector or a completist, this is certainly as good as this movie will probably ever look and is well worth the purchase. If you’re a casual giallo fan buy it for the sex and the lovely transfer. If you’re looking for something of the stature of those classic early ‘70s Argento or Fulci gialli, there’s nothing to see here.
