Giallo a Venezia: Directed by Mario Landi. With Leonora Fani, Jeff Blynn, Gianni Dei, Michele Renzullo. In Venice a detective is on the trail of a killer who commits a double murder (a married couple) then more grisly killings occur. Sex, drugs, gore and perversions are ingredients of this sadistic and sleazy giallo.
“…if for no other reason (of which really and truly there arenu0026#39;t any to speak of unless the trinity of coke, sex and murder is what gets you going) – then for Berto Pisanou0026#39;s stellar, lush, textbook pornographic musical score, all in routinely dizzying major 7 chords, swirling strings and the bop-bop melody firmly rooted in the 60u0026#39;s, already horribly dated by the time this was filmed (late 70u0026#39;s) but very charming and very pleasant nonetheless – for those into that sort of thing – itu0026#39;s a standout winner. What makes this additionally twisted is that the soundtrack is often strangely out of sync with what we see on screen (people are having copious amount of often kinky sex but are also being whipped, stabbed and mutilated to some rather blissful musical sounds, adding to the perverse appeal). The film is certainly a very decadent Eurotrash oddity worth checking out, provided you watch with your ears. And with your brain on leave.”
