“With the undertitle “a story of sex and violence”, this Last House on the Left-type exploitationer doesn’t excuse itself. A very cheap production with unknown actors (lots of women in hotpants and disco dues and men with greasy moustaches and tight blue jeans… Zora Zerova was the only actor I recognized) and dull photography in brown, grey and orange color schemes. The story is about a couple of female convicts, a leftwing political terrorist and her jaded band of robbers, whores and dykes, who’ve escape from prison and hide out at a luxurious mansion where they hold a judge and a female basketball team hostage. The schtick being, of course, that its the females that bring the terror and havoc this time around! Highlights include female-on-female rape, the gals forcing the judge to pee his pants, forced dogfood-eating and of course lots of nasty, hateful dialogue! Not the strongest or best in its genre, but I liked it, these nasty Italian disco era exploitation flicks are always enjoyable at worst (and from all the wrong reasons).” ~Lars Jacobsson on imdb

A suckmysound project, enhancing the German release with custom English subtitles.


“Strange Eurocine sleaze about a girl who’s forced into prostitution, made mostly from bits and pieces from other films… to make it even more puzzling, some of the newly shot footage (or is it? You can never be really sure when you’re watching a Eurocine film) also ends up in the almost identical L’ Oasis Des Filles Perdues, which I saw before this one. And just as in that routine sleaze film the action just drops dead in the middle for over 20 minutes from a 1960s spy film with Jack Taylor! It’s very funny when the geniuses behind this opus try to mix the spy footage to make it appear as it’s part of the sleaze flick! I really enjoyed this film but there is no way I can justify it.” ~imdb

Quella eta maliziosa

In Lose the skin, Paprika Chips on November 4, 2014 at 10:55 pm

Titel: Quella età maliziosa (The Malicious Age)
Production: Italy 1975
Director: Silvio Amadio
Cast: Nino Castelnuovo, Gloria Guida, Anita Sanders
Run Time: 85 min
Circulation: PAL DVDr
Generation/Source: DVD Custom
Language: Italian
Subtitles: English


A suckmysound project, pimping out the Italian Raro dvd.
“A man (Nino Castellnuovo) takes a gardening job at an isolated estate on the island of Elba, working for a widowed woman (Anita Sanders) and her teenage daughter (Gloria Guida). Both women tease him mercilessly.The mother takes off all her clothes in front of him for some reason, but then pushes him away when he tries to embrace her. The daughter practically dry-humps him on a crowded bus, does a bizarre dancing strip-tease for him through an open window,and nearly causes an accident by giving him a “foot-job” while he’s driving. A fourth character also appears for some reason in the form of drunken lecherous local fisherman who also lusts after the Guida character. He does a bizarre courtship dance (while apparently masturbating) outside her window. Finally, our hero consummates his relationship with one of the women, resulting in a completely implausible turn of events and tragic consequences for all involved.

Director Silvio Amado made two excellent and sexy gialli, “Amuck” and “Smile Before Death”, before falling into to more routine potboilers like this and “Peccati di Juventud” (also with Guida). These latter movies were just generically dumb rather than deliciously absurd like his earlier gialli and thus exponentially less interesting.

Gloria Guida, along with Ornella Muti and Jenny Tamburi, was one of three main “lolitas” of Italian exploitation films of this era (although it should be said that none of the three was actually underage in real-life as was the case in many high-brow French “art” films of the era). Guida was the least talented of the three–this movie doesn’t hold a candle to “Smile Before Death” or Fernidand DeLeo’s similarly themed “La Seduzione”, not because Guida isn’t as easy to look at as the star of those two films, Jenny Tamburi, but because the latter runs rings around Guida acting-wise. Guida herself would get a lot better in movies like “Being Twenty”, “Blue Jeans” and even “Peccati di Juventud”, but here she has all the sex appeal of your run-of-the-mill beauty pageant contestant (she was Miss Teen Italy of 1974). Of course, there is the one memorable scene where she runs off into the woods leaving a trail of clothes behind her. “

A nikko project, with custom subtitles by ganjafarmer. Beautiful RAI MOVIE capture.

“The quality of my Italian copy is horrible,but basically “24 Ore di Terrore” mixes elements of proto-giallo and gangster cinema.The action takes place in a mysterious castle in France.One gangster is transported to it.During a stop in a motel he is attacked by another crook,who takes his identity.The French castle is a hideout for the group of drug pushers.But there is also an unknown killer who begins to murder the members of the gang.Dull and unexciting proto-giallo with lots of ridiculous shots and few stalking/murder sequences.The acting is mediocre and the plot is gloriously naive.If you are a rabid collector of gialli you can’t miss it,though.” ~imdb
