is Killing a Call Girl's Clients in this Rare Giallo
starring: Simone Blondel · Paola Senatore · Jerry Colman · Ettore Manni
· Hunt Powers · Howard Ross
Senatore plays Cristina, an 18-year old girl, who runs away from home
to live on her own in the big city. Quickly, she decides that prostitution
would help her lifestyle. Cristina places a 'masseuse' ad in the newspaper
and begins turning tricks. But she's not very good at her new profession
and after some unfortunate experiences, she falls under the wing of
a pimp. Soon, the real plot develops. A cloaked figure with a straight
razor emerges from the shadows and begins slicing up her clients. After
a second and third slaying, the police get involved.
is the debut project for actress Paola Senatore, an Italian brunette
who averaged two films a year between 1972-87. She was best known for
her erotic thrillers, including KILLER
RESERVED NINE SEATS and LIKE
RABID DOGS. She also made numerous sex melodramas like Joe D'Amato's
IN AMERICA, IMAGES
IN THE CONVENT, IN
LOVE WITH SEX, et al. Her career ended abruptly in 1987
when she was arrested for possession and trafficking of drugs.
Blondel (Simonetta Vitelli) is the daughter of this director Demofilo
Fidani. She appeared in most all of his 20+ films. Here, as the head
of the police task force, she fares better than usual. Filmmaker Fidani
is a quirky director, known mostly for his use of splash colors and
stilted narratives. He was called the "Ed Wood of Spaghetti Westerns"
and would often hide behind an alias. Over the years, he signed movies
as Dennis Ford, Slim Alone, Sean O'Neal, Danilo Dani, Nedo De Fida,
Dick Spitfire, Lucky Dickinson, Nedo Fidano, Demos Filos and (his most
popular) Miles Deem. Of his twenty films, 14 were westerns (best known
DAMNED DAY AT DAWN: DJANGO MEETS SARTANA). Interestingly, A.A.A.
MASSEUSE was the only film signed with his real name. Failing health
forced him to retire from cinema in 1978; Mr Fidani died in March 1994
at age 80.
