“As far as French film noir is concerned, Sergio Gobbi represents the nadir. All his movies are simplistic and derivative, and when he has got a good idea, he is not able to exploit it successfully: making the cop and the gangster school friends was certainly interesting, but when it consists of sepia old movies introduced in the present, it does not amount to anything; and however, both studied in an independent Roman Catholic school!! The cop (Aznavour) has a talk with the venerable priest principal; The gangster(Hossein), fascinated by the American names, calls himself “Dillinger” and when he meets the blond Virna Lisi -whose part is inept-, it looks like a poor man’s “Bonnie And Clyde”.” [imdb]

Sensitività

In Paprika Chips, Somebody got murdered on April 10, 2013 at 6:40 pm

Title: Sensitività (The House by the Edge of the Lake) Director’s Cut
Production: Italy 1979
Director: Enzo G. Castellari
Cast: Vincent Gardenia, Leonora Fani, Wolfango Soldati
Run Time: 97min
Circulation: PAL DVDr
Generation/Source: VHS Screener Master
Language:  Italian
Subtitles: None

A smilinggods rip about which he says: “This is a world’s first: the unreleased director’s cut of Sensitività aka The House by the Edge of the Lake. This came from the actual print and was sent as a screener (in Italian language only) for consideration. The film, directed by Enzo G. Castellari, suffered from a terrible release when it was pulled from domestic circulation by its producer. The film was then cut and additional scenes by Alfonso Brescia added. The film, according to tastes, was ruined. What you have here is a world’s first and for Cinemageddon: the unseen, unreleased and unique print of Sensitività. Also of note is that it stars the lovely Leonara Fani…”

The source tape comes with a huge superimposed “NOT FOR SALE” smeared all across the image, throughout the movie.

sensivita

“This late mysterious entry in the Spanish giallo sweepstakes shows the giallo-ic side of Castellari – the side we saw in sexy thrillers like Cold Eyes of Fear…a side we’d like to quickly forget. A young child sees her mother drown in a boat by a human hand that appears out of the water. Flash forward to her adult life as she lives in a haunted (?) house and has sex with men that mysteriously die soon after through scary twisted events, one of which includes a telekinetic link with her sister who masturbates frequently (I counted at least five times). The plot makes absolutely NO sense and no explanations are given for anything, not even the @&%# hand which demands an explanation if ever there was one. Lots o’ titties bouncin’ around, but the gratuitous nudie romps in the hay are wasted in an amateur hour production that rivals the poorest of Italian lakehouse rip-offs. Most of the first act is outright incompetent with basic direction that wouldn’t pass a USC intro class let alone grab international distribution. One masturbatory sequence shows the same car explosion in triple(!) split screen, and Castellari gives himself a glorified actor’s cameo. Given most great directors’ inability to show any signs of screen presence in front of a camera, Castellari looks to have bulked up with steroids and growth hormones for his meaty role. The guy looks like a marriage of John Saxon and Coco the gorilla. Not even recommended for the die-hard Enzo completists.” [imdb]

Circulation: PAL DVDr
Generation/Source: VHS Screener Master
Language:  English
Subtitles: None

A smilinggods rip about which he says: “This is a classic and violent Italian post-apoc movie and is much loved by all. However, this version is unique and very different in that it came from the direct Italian VHS screener tape. This is not a copy, but was sent out to distributors in the early 1980s for consideration.”

3000

“The year 3000, after a nuclear war turned the earth into a desert. A group of survivors in a cave runs out of water and desperately needs new supply. The last guy they sent out didn’t return. His 10 years old son Timmy wants to join the next team. They know where they’ll find a well, but the problem it the way there, which is controlled by a savage gang of motorcyclists under the bloodthirsty Crazy Bull. A lonesome stranger who Timmy meets on the way may help.” [imdb]

sage des todes

“As the ‘body-count’ genre stabbed its way into audiences’ hearts in the early ’80s, EuroTrash auteur Jess Franco (SADOMANIA, MANSION OF THE LIVING DEAD) was asked to create his own saga of slaughtered schoolgirls complete with gratuitous nudity, graphic violence, and gory set pieces. But just when you thought you’d seen it all, Franco shocked the world by delivering surprising style, genuine suspense and a cavalcade of depravity that includes incest, voyeurism and roller disco.”
