OBSCENE DESIRE (1978) Giulio Petroni | Marisa Mell
OBSCENE DESIRE (1978) Giulio Petroni | Marisa Mell

Marisa Mell in Mega-Rare Sexy Italian Thriller

director: Giulio Petroni (as Jeremy Scott)
starring: Marisa Mell Lou Castel Chris Avram Laura Trotter Paola Maiolini Javier Escriva

Imagine... take the 'Rosemary Baby' theme, add considerably more sex and then combine it with a serial killer subplot, the result would be this motion picture. Director Giulio Petroni was so embarrassed by the end result, he refused to put his name on it. Instead Mr Petroni signed the film as Jeremy Scott, admitting ownership of the pseudonym just before his death in 2010. Giulio Petroni (who never used an alias for any of his other projects) made almost exclusively Spaghetti Westerns throughout his career; he is best known for the hit DEATH RIDES A HORSE. Mr Petroni died in January 2010 from natural causes at age 92.

Marisa Mell (born Marles Moitzi in Austria) was married briefly to Henry Tucci in the early '60s. Over the years, she was romantically linked to Alain Delon, Warren Beatty, Robert Evans, Roman Polanski, Jess Franco and the Shah of Iran. She made 75+ films in the 30 years between 1960-90, but was dangerously addicted to cocaine, often resulting in legal problems. Miss Mell died from throat cancer at the early age of 53 in May 1992.

American tourist Amanda meets a wealthy Italian nobleman named Andrea Orsomandi. Their whirlwind romance results in a marriage proposal and the couple visiting his secluded gothic mansion in the country. However, Amanda is immediately uncomfortable with the place, believing it to be sinister and evil. She soon discovers that Andrea is involved in black magic. She doesn't realize that her husband-to-be (with the aid of the gardener) is also capturing and killing prostitutes, seemingly to - somehow - exorcise the Evil in the house. Before long, Amanda falls under the dark forces and nothing can stop the demonic cycle.

An Italian film with English subtitles; widescreen format, totally uncut version (90 min.), DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC, playable on any American machine. Extras include trailers.
