116 MASQUERADE (1992) Raven stars in an Italian Thriller
Porn Stars in an Effective Italian Giallo!
Italian Title: BASSI ISTINTI [Basic Instinct]
also known as BLACK GLOVE and PRIVATE DETECTIVE
director: Silvio Bandinelli
starring: Nellie Marie Vickers (Raven) · Teresa Weigel ·
Joseph Nassivera · Rocco Siffredi (Tano)
very rare debut film from Silvio Bandinelli remains somewhat of a mysterious
project. He has written and directed a traditional thriller (albeit,
Giallo) but instead of recruiting the usual genre actors, Silvio has
populated his film with popular hardcore (XXX) performers who do not
engage in any hardcore scenes. There's lots of nudity and a very quirky
plot, but the director is more interested in having his actors act
instead of perform.
Marie Vickers (better know to the adult film enthusiasts as Raven) is
surprisingly good in the role of Detective Linda Forrester, a Los Angeles
undercover cop sent to Italy to assist a murder investigation of an
antique dealer who was about to expose shady dealings in the art world.
Everybody seems to have some deeply guarded secrets (including a lurid
incest angle) but as Det. Linda and her Italian partner Guido Moranto
investigate the killer is stalking new victims.
