A pipipip project, about which he says: “This strange Giallo was released as an NTSC DVD in Japan some years ago. Sadly this DVD looks only good on NTSC CRT screens because of the weird encoding with interlaced and fieldblended video. Also this DVD is cut by some minutes which are available on German VHS. To reconstruct a progressive video stream I had to investigate deeply into Avisynth scripting nightmare. But the result looks quite cool and on top the video runs absolutely fluid without any stuttering. For the cut scenes I created english subtitles (Excuse to the Italian speakers: You have to use the English subs here.) The movie starts with audio of the preferred DVD player language.


“A love triangle develops between three people who run a high tech chicken farm. It involves Anna (who owns the farm), her husband Marco (who kills prostitutes in his spare time) and Gabriella (the very beautiful secretary). Marco continues to kill as jealousy becomes more prevalent on the farm.” [imdb]
