as Antonio Margheriti's Best Motion Picture!
directors: Antonio Margheriti (as Anthony M Dawson)
starring: Joachim Fuchsberger ∑ Dominique Boschero ∑ Marianne
Koch ∑ Luciano Pigozzi (as Alan Collins)
International critics consider this 'Antonio Margheriti's best film'
and - without taking away from his solid movies like CANNIBAL
APOCALYPSE and STRANGER
AND THE GUNFIGHTER - it is remarkably good. Here
is an atmospheric thriller (with a sťance figuring prominently
into the drawing room narrative) that immediately hearkens back to the
'old dark house' genre. Director/writer Margheriti adds heady
doses of sex [including lesbian frolics] and graphic violence to the
mix. Essentially, the story deals with a group of people - each with
a dark secret - who are brought to a remote location with the promise
of an inheritance. But everything goes terribly wrong, culminating in
a murder spree.
Koch (from FISTFUL
OF DOLLARS) steals the show as Vivian, married to Ben but disillusioned
by his constant infidelity, now preferring lesbian embrace. Interestingly,
this would be Ms Koch's final feature film [after two decades of acting].
After this movie, she returned to medical school, got a degree and today
is a doctor practicing in Germany.
