BLOOD DELIRIUM (1989) rare Sergio Bergonzelli
BLOOD DELIRIUM (1989) rare Sergio Bergonzelli

Ultra Rare Horror Sleaze from Legendary Sergio Bergonzelli


director: Sergio Bergonzelli
starring: John Phillip Law Gordon Mitchell Brigitte Christensen Marco Di Stefano


Take a cupful of Herschell Lewis' COLOR ME BLOOD RED, mix it with a Vincent Van Gogh fetish, throw in a bit of Ghost Story seasoning, and then add large portions of necrophilia, misogyny, gratuitous nudity plus wanton blood lust... the result is this film.

The story deals with an unbalanced painter named Charles St Simone [but he prefers being called 'Maestro'] who believes he is the reincarnation of Vincent Van Gogh. After his beloved wife dies, Charles goes berserk and - with the help of his necrophiliac butler - digs up her body. She is carted back to the castle where Charles hopes she will bring inspiration back to his work and butler Herman hopes to cop a feel. However, the spirit of the wife - somehow - manages to summon a doppelgenger named Christine to the castle at which point Charles becomes infatuated and obsessed. The new look-alike eventually discovers the secret of the Maestro's castle: namely, the butler kidnaps and murders young women, while Charles uses their blood (the color of life) for his artwork.

Sergio Bergonzelli made 28 movies between 1960-1990. He began his career - like so many other cult directors - with Spaghetti Westerns but by the end of the sixties he had diverted to youth-movement films. Often his movies would embrace elements of the counter-culture (his CRISTIANA SCANDALOUS COED (1972) and OUR LADY OF LUST in '73 are perfect examples of this). He is best known for the bizarre giallo IN THE FOLDS OF THE FLESH (1970). Mr Bergonzelli retired from the movie business shortly after BLOOD DELIRIUM when his health began to fail. He died from a heart attack in September 2002. Sergio was 78.
