“A group of decadent and filthy rich people arrive at the empty hotel where a deceased rich man lived.Soon they are copulating like crazy and the murders begin…Cesare Canevari’s “Sensual Murder” is one of the sleaziest gialli I have ever seen.It’s on par with “Giallo a Venezia”,”La Sorella di Ursula” and “Play Motel” when it comes to graphic sleaze and sexual debauchery.Unfortunately the film fails as a giallo simply because there is not enough murders and violence.Canevari filled “Delitto Carnale” with as much sex and nudity as he could.The film is quite erotic and arousing in places,unfortunately the action quickly becomes dull and uninteresting.6 sleazies out of 10.” ~imdb

Delitto d’autore

Run Time: 74min
Circulation: PAL DVDR

Language: Italian
Subtitles: English


A darioargento project.

“A wealthy Countess is warned that if she gives a valuable painting away as first prize in a music competition, the only thing handed out will be death. In rapid succession, the painting is stolen, the Countess murdered, her niece (Sylva Koscina) kidnapped, and the police baffled as the killings continue… This uninspired villa-set murder mystery has a decent body count and plenty of red herrings but still manages to fall short of being a bona fide Giallo. There’s a brief Sylva Koscina nude scena and genre star Luigi Pistilli is on hand as a suspicious priest but the absence of even a semblance of style or set-piece slaying help the movie miss the mark.” ~imdb

The smuggler is housed in an abandoned motel with his lover, but the first few pleasant hours soon turn into nightmare as the smuggler begins hallucinating and communicating with ghosts whose life eerily mirrors his own problems. Little does he know that he is placed in a trap that would make Hamlet proud.”

A pipipip project.

“When I learned that this giallo featured a speed boat racer, I was less than enthusiastic and when the film opens with a prolonged speed boat race, my mind is already wandering. The music and strange sounds that make up the soundtrack are very good, the crazy architectural weirdness that is the villa where most of the subsequent action takes place, is great and once Elga Andersen and Rosanna Yanni appear things are starting to look up. The ever reliable Ivan Rassimov also helps and yet having got over the rather slow start the film begins to throw up confusion. Maybe it was the dark print and misleading English dub but I certainly became confused and when later we begin to realise what we are supposed to believe it is no wonder! But almost as I began to despair, the picture improves, clothes become loosened, murder is to the fore and things generally brighten up for a glorious last half hour or so.” ~imdb

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

“Gathered in the great family villa for listening to the last will of a very rich owner of diamond mines that has just been killed, his relatives – that hate each other heartily – find that they have to spend a whole month in the vast estate, so that the pretenders to the legacy cut down from seven to three. While the various characters get busy scheming complex plans that bring the others one to eliminate reciprocally, an old Scotland Yard detective does his best to identify the perpetrator of the first crime that has set in motion the complex massacre game he’s now witnessing.”
