date

A pipipip custom, using a recent German TV capture for the source material.

“Since this is the very first user-comment submitted for “Date for a Murder”, I was really hoping to enlighten all you readers about another totally forgotten and fascinating Italian cult film from the late 60’s! Sadly, it didn’t turn out to be the undiscovered gem that I was desiring to see (with the recent popularity towards for Italian cinema, I assume all the greatest films have already been identified), yet it’s nonetheless an interesting crime/thriller with some raw action sequences and a fairly compelling plot. Two American friends coincidentally meet each other in the Italian countryside and agree to get back together again a couple of days later in Rome, after they both settled some private affairs. When one of them doesn’t show up, the other one gets concerned and fears that something suspicious happened. He investigates the case himself and it doesn’t take long before he’s entangled in a network of industrial espionage, blackmail and even cold-blooded murder. The story, especially towards the finale, is rather predictable and the obligatory love-story is completely pointless. The heroic duo (the American and a local police commissioner) are likable characters and all the villains look effectively menacing, most notably the creepy guy in motorized wheelchair!” [imdb]

“Highly entertaining Italian crime gem directed by Alfonso Brescia. Dan “Knell” Caputo (George ANTHROPOPHAGOUS Eastman) arrives at New York to avenge the death of his father, an ex-cop who was involved in mob business. A great film, guaranteed to please lovers of over-the-top action, featuring lots of shootouts, hockey-masked terrorist attacks, full-frontal nudity strip-tease shows and beautiful explosions! Eastman is just as good at shooting scumbags as in eating human guts! We recommend this highly!’  [Trash Online]

A pipipip project, based on groundwork by darioargento.

“Episodic portrait of a criminal, from 1934 until after the war. Roberto Borgo is tough, cool, sardonic, loyal, and deadly. He comes to Marseilles to help his friend Xavier Saratov get out of jail, first killing a local brothel and casino boss to take over the businesses, and, with the help of Xavier’s sister, Georgia, amass money for Xavier’s defense. Xavier loses in court, so Roberto gets himself thrown in prison to be with his friend. Escape proves futile, but they are pardoned in exchange for working as sappers. After the war, Xavier is a bitter cripple, but Roberto remains detached, extorting ownership of a casino, which puts his friends at risk. Does he care?” [imdb]

mission

A pipipip project, adding a couple of audio tracks to a recent Spanish TV rip.

“A nuclear scientist is kidnapped by Chinese communists in Hong Kong. A Japanese group of judo experts kidnaps him from the kidnappers, but before they can contact the American agent who has been assigned with overseeing the scientist’s transfer back to the USA, the agent is killed. The American secret service send their top man to Hong Kong as his replacement, with the mission of locating the scientist. But there are TWO rival gangs of baddies who are also looking for the same target, so our hero has to assume a different identity to infiltrate them. “Desperate Mission” is not a bad entry in the Eurospy genre, however it goes on far too long at 115 minutes. There is enough action and exotic sightseeing, but not much urgency to the story. German Cobos makes a passable if a bit bland lead, while Milton Reid, who has appeared as a henchman in two separate James Bond films, plays another Oddjob-like figure here. The film is certainly not served very well by its current full-screen and murky-colored prints.” [imdb]

play

A bubikoglu rip of the LFVW VHS, not the greatest looking print.

“Play Motel” is a very rare giallo that features Ray Lovelock in a tale of a Motel that has a playroom designed for more interesting sexual liaisons.The place also makes a habit of photographing the sexual encounters and blackmailing the parties involved.Add to this a black gloved killer and some hard core inserts and you have one of the weirdest giallos your ever going to see.”Play Motel” by Mario Gariazzo mixes giallo,crime and comedy with plenty of hard core sex.The music is pretty bad,however the addition of black gloved killer is a nice touch.Ray Lovelock and Annamaria Rizzoli are very enjoyable as the two lovers.Overall,I loved this ultra-sleazy giallo and you should too,if you are into Italian smut.” [imdb]
