Giallo a Venezia (1979)
« on: May 28, 2013, 11:26:53 PM »
Flavia (Leonora Fani) and Fabio (Gianni Dei) are lovers, or "lovers" more precisely as we learn very soon that thair relationship is a little twisted. Fabio likes to make love while somebody's watching them and when that is not anymore enough (which is very soon once the film has started), he starts to whip his girl and also force her to whore herself while he himself is watching from a safe distance. This continues in various places and I don't think the reason for Fabio's acts is never really explained which is not a surprise either. Due to the film's circle-like structure and some surprising plot turns at the beginning and the end, I can't tell more about what happens, but without spoiling anything: a double murder takes place, a policeman (Jeff Blynn) starts to investigate and soon more murders take place and they all are as gratuitously graphic and disturbingly sick as could expect. Imagine a hard core porn film where all the porn is gore and violence and you have an idea what kind of a film Giallo a Venezia will be.

This is an interesting (and fairly late) entry into the giallo sub-genre.

It's become pretty infamous amongst Eurohorror fans mainly due to gratuitous gore, plus scenes of extreme sexual violence, which are much more exaggerated than in standard gialli. Add to this lower production values, and a grimy, more gritty style, and you have a giallo film which transcends the genre and is more of an underground horror film in atmosphere and tone, in a lot of ways.

Definitely worth a look, mainly for the style contrast and a fresh take on a well-trodden sub-genre, but this is far from a good giallo, or a good film, in my opinion.

This sounds great with the promise of more solid sex scenes and gore!
