School Girls Chains Region NTSC

Schoolgirls in Chains is a 1973 USA horror by Don Jones.
With Gary Kent, John Parker and Stafford Morgan. YouTube icon IMDb
Seized by the police during the Video Nasties moral panic. Uncut in the US.

Summary Notes

Two deranged brothers, who are under the domineering influence of their crazed mother, kidnap young girls and keep them captive in chains in their basement, where they subject them to depraved "games" that often end in torture and murder.

Girls in Chains is a descent cheesy exploitation movie from the early 70's, featuring some good acting, and even some humourous parts. There is nudity, but not as graphic as what are shown in the other trailers, and not as what is suggested by the DVD cover.

81:45s UK: Passed 12A for infrequent strong language, moderate sex references after BBFC advised pre-cuts for:
  • Lions Gate R2 DVD
  • 2015 cinema release
The BBFC commented:
  • This film was originally seen for advice. The company was advised the likely classification was 15 but that their preferred 12A could be achieved by reducing the quantity of strong language. When the film was submitted for formal classification, the number of uses of strong language had been reduced and the film was therefore classified 12A.

Absolutely Anything offended 22 viewers for it's 6 'fucks' in a 12 rated film. The BBFC commented in its 2015 Annual Report:

Absolutely Anything attracted complaints because of strong language and sex references. The distributor reduced the frequency of strong language in the film following advice prior to the film's submission to the BBFC for formal classification. The film originally contained over 20 uses of strong language.

The 12A version of the film contains six uses of strong language (f**k) and some moderate and mild bad language. The language in Absolutely Anything was therefore within the Guidelines at 12A. Nevertheless, 22 members of the public complained about the number of uses of the F word as well as some references to sex.

Absurd Blu ray Joe DAmato  

Absurd is a 1981 Italy horror by Joe D'Amato (as Peter Newton).
Starring George Eastman, Annie Belle and Charles Borromel. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
BBFC cuts were required for an 18 rated 1983 cinema release. Later banned as a video nasty in 1983. The BBFC waived their cuts for an uncut 18 rated home video release in 2017. Uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US. There also exists an extended version in Belgium with additional dialogue and an extended scene.

Summary Review: Halloween-esque

Monster Hunter is the Halloween -esque 'sequel' to 1981's insomniac's dream Anthropophagous . This time around D'Amato brings to us a sense of pace, making Monster Hunter much more enjoyable.

The added gore (including an ultra-torturous scene involving an oven) and cool electronic music score is a nice bonus.

The story brings back George Eastman as our favorite cannibal, this time somewhere in the US being hunted by a priest.

A bit boring at times but Eastman's presence is over powering and the end involving a 'vegetable' overcoming her disabilities to face the beast is fairly ironic.

See pictorial cuts details from movie-censorship.com

See Short Version vs Extended Version from movie-censorship.com :

At the time of the original cinema release a film shown in theaters wasn't supposed to cross the 135 minute barrier and so Cameron had to trim his movie down. Many scenes shedding more light on the characters have been removed. However, the most important missing scene is the weather changes and the participation of the NTI's in them (when Bud is aboard the NTIs' vessel). This sequence alone lasts more then five minutes and includes a spectacular scene with a tsunami 1000 feet high.

After Cameron was able to release Aliens in an extended version in 1992 he followed with the release of the Special Edition version of The Abyss in 1993. He recovered his favorite version. Missing visual effects shots, like the wave, were finished. Thanks to the new scenes, who point towards the danger of WWIII, the movie becomes a different, more serious tone und also explains the NTIs' actions.

Passed 18 uncut with BBFC cuts waived for:

Review from Amazon US : One of the craziest movies This is definitely one of the craziest movies I've ever seen. A wild Mixture of Action and Splatters cenes, combined with crazy Humour, funny dialogues and very strange Actors.

The Plot is told with a few sentences: Women gets kidnapped by a group of crippled Terrorists, known as "Accion Mutante". On the way to the planet Axturias, the group gets decimated by their own leader. Finally all the survivors meet again - the final clash marks the curious culmination of a curious film.

In my Opinion, Alex de la Iglesia has done a very good job - it's an excellent film, a macabre Masterpiece beside the Mainstream.

A BBFC examiner commented on the title change:

Obviously the characters are youngsters, but we felt that this series didn't have the kind of appeal that say Akira or even Crying Freeman had for a younger audience. I mean, the storyline in Adventure Duo is quite impenetrable, so we didn't feel that teenagers would particularly go for this material. It's one of the reasons that we insisted that the name be changed from Adventure Kids to Adventure Duo.

Passed 18 after 7:35s of BBFC cuts and a BBFC title change for:

  • 2002 Revelation R2 DVD
  • 1994 Paradox VHS

The cuts as described by a BBFC examiner:

Let me show you a scene we cut from Adventure Duo which features teenage heroes who get into all sorts of adventures, yet the film also contains very realistic portrayals of sex including autoeroticism and sexual assault. This is from Adventure Duo 2 which is set in Japan during the Second World War. We are introduced to an impotent scientist whose wife is sexually frustrated and the episode starts with her masturbating in a highly realistic and sexually arousing fashion. Her husband interrupts her and she asks him to make love to her but he refuses and goes back to his laboratory. A few minutes later a group of soldiers arrive and decide to humiliate the scientist by raping his wife in front of him. It's one of the longest, strongest and highly realistic rape scenes I have ever seen in Japanese animation. And what the Board found particularly worrying is that this woman is forced to admit to the rapist that she is enjoying the experience. And when the woman finally orgasms there's no doubt that the underlying message is that women can enjoy rape as long as it's done well.

And in cutting this scene, we're making a decision about the presentation of sexual violence across the board, whether the audience is 18 or 80. It was our view that even if this material isn't corrupting underage viewers, current social attitudes dictate that this kind of sexual violence is unacceptable. Not only does the law compel us to censor material, public opinion does as well, and public opinion is something we monitor very closely.

cut PG Cert 65:3 Environment documentaries by Ben Knight, Travis Rummel & Jim Odoine

The BBFC cut the 2008 cinema release: Company chose to remove a background use of strong language in order to obtain a 'PG' classification. An uncut '12A' classification was available.

The BBFC explained the PG certificate:

A double bill of documentaries dealing with ecological issues. The first deals with the community of Bristol Bay in Alaska and their objections to the creation of a copper and gold mine. The second deals with two kayakers travelling across the country using used oil instead of petrol for fuel. The film was passed PG for mild language and a mild drug reference.

BBFC Guidelines at PG allow mild bad language , in this case ass and screw (this up) . The film also includes a passing mention of LSD but this occurs in the context of a song lyric playing over the end credits ( I once heard a man talk with his heart about the Lord and the army and LSD ) and is therefore considered innocuous and undetailed enough for PG .

The film also contains some natural footage of a bear catching a live salmon, which is seen flapping on the ground before being eaten.

Adventures of Kekkou Kamen: Part 1 : Naked Justice

Link Here
3:59s 18 40:19s 1995 Japanese anime by Go Nagai

Cuts as described by a BBFC examiner: When the Board first saw The Adventures of Kekkou Kamen, we were quite taken aback as we hadn't seen anything like it before. The series directly associates comedy with violence and sexualised violence. It features a naked superheroine who goes around with only a hood on beating up the bad guys with nunchakus, which are illegal weapons in this country. Though we allowed some scenes to remain in which Kekkou was just holding nunchakus, if a scene glamourised and promoted their use, then it became a problem and was cut.

The other, more troubling issue with Kekkou Kamen is that it is a comedy which has at its heart a sort of sexualised violence. This scene was cut from the first episode . It's where a group of sadistic schoolteachers make jokes at the expense of a young girl who is hung up and then whipped and tortured by a sadistic Nazi. This is the crux of the sequence, where the girl is stripped with a whip and we get an eroticised view of her breasts and naked torso. This is very over the top and is meant to be a satire on the Japanese education system, but our feeling was that there was enough explicit sexual imagery to undercut the satire and introduce an element of arousal and titillation, which is reinforced by the change of music

Summary Review: Indiscriminate extermination

From the producers of the Mondo Canes comes this violent document of a continent in transition; the change from white colonialism to independent black statehood. Often times, this resulted in the wholesale massacre of thousands of people and the indiscriminate extermination of wild life. Captured on film are mercenary killer squads wiping out entire villages, executions, Mau-Mau massacres and more!

This documentary proves one thing and one thing only. Humans are the sickest and cruelest animals on the planet.

Promotional Material

A provocative comedy about sex, marriage and finding yourself again, AFTERNOON DELIGHT follows Rachel (Kathryn Hahn, Step Brothers, We re the Millers), a quick-witted, yet tightly-coiled, thirty-something bored with her daily routine of preschool auctions and a lackluster sex life and career that has gone kaput. Looking to spice-up her marriage, Rachel takes her husband Jeff (Josh Radnor, How I Met Your Mother, Liberal Arts) to a strip club and meets McKenna (Juno Temple, Killer Joe, The Dark Knight Rises), a stripper she becomes obsessed with saving. Rachel adopts McKenna as her live-in nanny, wreaking havoc on her friends, family and herself.

Jill Soloway had a film come out this year called Afternoon Delight. The movie stars Kathryn Hahn as Rachel, a stay-at-home mom who meets McKenna, sex worker played by Juno Temple. As you can imagine, the premise gives rise to some racy situations (at least, by old-fogey-MPAA lights, anyway). And when Soloway went through the MPAA ratings process, she told me, she was forced to cut quite a bit from certain scenes. In one case, she had to cut words, or expressions of enjoyment --- oh yeah type-stuff --- from a scene in which Rachel watches McKenna do her job. They wanted it to be less intense, less uncomfortable, Soloway says. And I went crazy trying to get that done. In another, there was a problem with the length--- which was under ten seconds--- of a silhouetted sex scene, which was apparently too much for the MPAA folk.

Soloway Said: Director friends of mine said, 'Let it be NC-17,' what do you care? But she had a contract with a distributor, and the contract said that she had to deliver an R-rated picture, so she ended up making cuts she didn't like.

When asked if she had any opportunity for a back-and-forth with the MPAA, on any of the cuts they asked for on Afternoon Delight, Soloway replied:

Yes. They just said, too sexually intense. Tony and Joan [Hey and Graves] are nice people, I like them. And you know, when I showed the film at Sundance, I also felt like some scenes were too intense, and I cut them down a little myself for the theatrical version before the MPAA even got involved. Which I sort of regret, because this is a political process and in a way if I had started with a more intense version I could have kept in what I wanted in the end, maybe.

The fact is that when I watch the movie now and I experience that scene, something is materially missing. The [MPAA's] cuts ended up making that scene worse in a way that I can feel--- or rather, I miss what I used to feel--- when watching it. The movie is not as good with those cuts.

Billed as: A Risqué Walk Down Memory Lane.

A large proportion of the film consists of soundies - short black & white films made for an early kind of video jukebox . So we get to see Fats Waller doing the title song, for instance. But there are also pieces from sound shorts, and features - an eclectic collection, from both sides of the Atlantic.

Interspersed between the musical numbers there are rather tame and clumsy vintage porn films. Surreal!

  • The lyrics of the opening song, "Arabian Nights", were changed for the video release due to pressure from groups who were offended by the original lyrics. The original lyrics were: "Where they cut off your ear if they don't like your face. It's barbaric, but hey it's home." The new lyrics are: "Where it's flat and immense and the heat is intense, it's barbaric, but hey it's home". The original version of "Arabian Nights" is on the film's original soundtrack album.
     
  • The original version contained the line, "Good tiger, take off and go," which was spoken by Aladdin when Raja is growling at him. However, after the film was released on home video, many began to speculate that the line was actually, "Good teenagers take off their clothes," meant as a subliminal message. For the DVD release, this line was omitted, presumably to prevent any further speculation.

Summary Review: Surprisingly well-crafted

An English soldier (Cliver) returns home from the Zulu war with the daughter of a tribal king (Gemser) as his slave (a gift that he was given for saving the kings life). Not at all pleased with being a slave, the Ebony princess plots her revenge starting with the seduction of the mistress. Jealousy spreads like wildfire and before you know it, she has turned the household into a lustful frenzy of sex and hatred.

This film is actually far more twisted than it sounds. One of the more disturbing moments being a sequence about the filming of an inquisition-themed porno that turns into the sadistic rape of a lesbian / virgin by the filthy and none too bright gardener.

Sporting tons of full-frontal nudity, simulated lesbian and straight sex and some hard-core (as seen in an old stag film), this has the sleazy goods atmospheric setting, and is definitely recommended.

You have to know, up front, what their bugaboos are, and you have to do the dance. I knew that, when you take a scantily clad girl and tie her up with her own stockings, and she's thinking she's going to have some rough trade sex, you're already in very dangerous territory with the MPAA, so I shot extra stuff and it wound up being cut back. I looked into that world of S&M and B&D, in my own life, and it's erotic. The whole thing is great, cinematically. I definitely made the scene about control and not about sex. We went back and forth on that sequence, two or three times, and then got the PG-13.

On Alexander, I released a shorter version [in theaters] because of Warner Brothers issues. And I [was] also rushed. [When] I released the director's cut -- it wasn't called a director's cut . It was called The Final Cut because [earlier] there was a rushed director's cut that I was responsible for. My third version three years later in 2007 was called A Final Cut and I actually added forty some odd minutes -- which I think makes the film better.

I've been asked by Warner Brothers because they did so well with The Final Cut . They actually sold more than a million copies. They've asked me to go back next year and do a fourth version.

I want to cut it down now because I added too much. I want it to come back a little bit. There's some trimming [needed].

See review from  flix66.com :

The main difference in this Ultimate Cut versus the theatrical version is that Stone has re-edited the film so that instead of a straight-forward story there are now a lot of flashbacks

With Kristine DeBell, Bucky Searles and Gila Havana. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Mostly softcore but contains a little hardcore. This was cut by the BBFC for 1977 cinema release and 1987 VHS

Summary Review: Wonderful

An infectious happy film from the golden age of porn. Especially commendable to see the talented and very attractive Kristine DeBell get involved in a little hardcore. Not really full on, but the near mainstream quality of the film makes the few hardcore scenes that little bit more worthwhile.

So Cameron went to the cutting room, again, and lost more than 15 minutes of footage.

All Ladies Blu ray Claudia Koll

All Ladies Do It is a 2003 Italy drama romance by Tinto Brass.
With Sara Cosmi, Massimiliano Caroletti, William De Vito. BBFC link IMDb

 

Promotional Material

Diana (Claudia Koll) and Paolo (Paolo Lanza) are happily married despite her much greater sexual appetite: he s content to simply listen to the stories of her various adventures. But when she has an affair that s much too close to home, he throws her out, and she moves into a Venetian flat to embark upon an erotic voyage of discovery, while at the same time trying to win him back.

Loosely inspired by the Mozart opera Così fan tutte (the title is a direct translation), the film tackles a crucial question: why shouldn't women enjoy the same sexual freedom that they've long had to tolerate in their men? Especially when they have such shapely and inviting rears?

Once again, Tinto Brass proves his unmatched skill at balancing eroticism and humour in this lively and beautifully photographed comedy, both wittier and more sexually explicit than the average softcore romp.

See article from strangethingsarehappening.com :

This film is certainly more graphic than you'd expect from standard softcore -- the women spread their legs, there's fairly graphic anal fingering and a brief hardcore scene involving a home movie. But the film doesn't quite go all the way -- while the men sport solid erections, these are all prosthetics (something else that Meyer also used in his later films) and so the sex scenes that they appear in are not real . But of course they are supposed to be the real thing, and so the line is rather blurred (and to confuse things more, there is a brief blowjob scene during the rave party that might be genuine). It's curious (but appreciated) that All Ladies Do It -- surely a sex work by their own standards -- has been passed uncut in a longer version than previously seen.

Summary Notes

A baby alligator is flushed down a Chicago toilet and survives by eating discarded lab rats, injected with growth hormones. The small animal grows gigantic, escapes the city sewers, and goes on a rampage.

Alligator is an over the top, ridiculous and fun man vs. beast horror movie. Think a B-movie version of Jaws if he were on steroids and able to jump out of the water and run through the streets looking for food.

For the viewer that likes his horror gory Alligator has significant bright red blood splattered about as the beast chomps away and devours his victims throughout the city neighbourhoods and sewers.

The uncut region 1 DVD is available at US Amazon

Review from Amazon US In the world of exploitation cinema, Doris Wishman was a trailblazer. She also was slightly nuts. So it's only natural that she would be the one with the [moxy] to make "The Amazing Transplant," the first penis transplant movie. Nerdy Arthur never had much luck with the ladies, but lately he's raping women.... The reason? That brand new penis he got (in a bloodless surgery) also gave him a new fetish that makes him lose control when he sees women wearing gold earrings! As if the story wasn't odd enough, the uninitiated might find Wishman's style a bit jarring. All dialog is post-dubbed so, in an apparent effort to avoid troublesome lip-synching, Doris tries not to turn the camera on anyone who's supposed to be speaking.

In addition to Wishman's hypnotically surreal narrative, check out the included trailers to Wishman movies like "Deadly Weapons," "The Immoral Three" and her sickest movie, "Love Toy." Topping off this DVD trashfest are a couple of shorts, "Penis Facts" and a Navy sex hygiene film that's surprisingly explicit --and hilarious.

Summary Review: Original

A young woman seeks vengeance and finds love when her parents are killed in the Amazon and she is taken prisoner by an indigenous tribe of headhunters.

I have almost all of the cannibal movies ever made and this is one of the most original.

A girl takes a boat voyage with her parents, aunt and uncle. Her parents are killed with blowguns. A tribe of natives takes the girl captive and a warrior takes a particular liking to her, but it is said he killed her parents.

The girl is modestly hot and topless through most of it. This is a must-see for fans of cannibals.

Among the cuts highlights are:

  • A flashback with Frank Lucas and Bumpy Johnson on a boardwalk
  • A short scene showing Richie Roberts acquiring office space for his new narcotics task force (this added scene follows immediately after Toback assigns Roberts to head up the federal investigation using honest cops of Roberts' choice
  • A nighttime scene where Roberts and his team tail a drug pusher with a stash of Blue Magic to an auto body shop; the next morning, Spearman strikes a deal with the shop owner "Scott" over the phone, which leads up to Roberts under disguise dropping off $20,000 to get a supply of Blue Magic
  • In the Bronx, right after Spearman drops off Roberts and informs him that he'll circle the block, an extended scene takes place where Roberts sees both Scott take off in his Jeep and Spearman getting blocked by a broken-down truck, unable to reach Roberts. In desperation, Roberts stops a yellow cab and shows his badge, argues with the uncooperative cabbie to use it, and eventually decks the cabbie in the face to take control of the cab and quickly pursues the escaping drug pusher, ending with Roberts following the unsuspecting Scott on foot.
  • After the Christmas visit with Charlie Williams, there's an extended scene with Frank and Eva back at their home, where Frank reminisces how Bumpy gradually stayed more and more at home towards the end of his life because of constant police surveillance. He then asks Eva if she wants to go out, nevertheless.
  • An extended ending in 1991 where Lucas upon release from jail is picked up by Roberts, and the two make their way towards the intersection of 116 St. and Frederick Douglass Blvd, conversing while drinking lattes.

uncut 18 85:06s 1987 UK/Canadian horror film by John Hough

The uncut region 0 DVD is available at UK Amazon

Review from imdb : Unusual horror

"American Gothic" is an unusual horror thriller in the simple way that it is character-driven - it doesn't care about suspense and does NOT go overboard in the gore department - although it lapses into Body Count Movie cliches.

It also depends on the victims behaving much more stupidly than you would expect real people to (then again, that's commonplace in slasher films). It's a pretty dumb movie but also dumb enough to be mildly entertaining (although I must stress the word MILDLY).

Rod Steiger as usual is given an opportunity to go wildly over the top, and Yvonne DeCarlo, a.k.a. Lily Munster, is on hand as his wife. These two veterans tend to act rings around their younger co-stars.

Summary Notes

Vivien and Ben Harmon and their daughter Violet relocate to Los Angeles from Boston and buy a large old house. As required by law, the real estate agent discloses that the previous occupants were the victims of a murder-suicide. The Harmons think nothing of it and concentrate on repairing their marriage that has come under strain following Vivien's miscarriage and Ben's subsequent infidelity with one of his students. Ben is a psychiatrist and will meet his patients in the house. They meet the neighbors, the eccentric Constance and her daughter Adelaide. Vivien also hires a housekeeper, Moira, but Ben and Vivien don't quite see the same person when they look at her. Violet is bullied at school and befriends one of her dad's patients who has serious psychological problems. Strange events begin to occur.

Summary Review : Holds up well

American soldier, obviously very skilled in martial arts, single-handedly takes on mercenaries in the Philippines.

For being 20 years old this movie holds up remarkably well.

New recruit Michael Dudikoff unwillingly gets mixed up in some illegal arms transaction between crooked Army brass and a group of ninjas. He also accidentally arouses the lustful attention of the Colonel's hot tan daughter!

Some reviewers mention this as a "guilty pleasure" I disagree. With great fight scenes, icky sound effects every time somebody gets stabbed, a fun story and a energetic performance by Steve James there's no way you can classify this as a guilty pleasure. It's too good for that.

Summary Review: Must Have Bad Action Films

On a remote Caribbean island, Army Ranger Joe Armstrong investigates the disappearance of several marines, which leads him to The Lion, a super-criminal who has kidnapped a local scientist and mass-produced an army of mutant Ninja warriors.

American Ninja 1, 2 & 3 represent everything that bad, low-budget action movies should be: negligible plotting, lame dialogue, wooding acting, and plenty of semi-believable martial-arts action.

Not that plot really matters, since it's interrupted about every five minutes for a fight scene. Dudikoff and the other guy can't really act, but they can fight, and that's all that really matters. No self-respecting fan of bad action should be without this DVD.

Jackson is back, and now he has a new partner, karate champion Sean, as they must face a deadly terrorist known as The Cobra , who has infected Sean with a virus.

I don't know why Dudikoff quit, but I wish that it hadn't happened. Not that I dislike David Bradley, but Dudikoff is just a better actor, without doubt. On the contrary, Bradley is better in the fighting scenes, which (as always) makes up an important part in the movie.

American Ninja 3 has much of the same as in the two first movies, but with lower quality.

When Sean, Carl and pretty doctor Sarah run into some problems, Peace Corps vet Joe Armstrong is lured out of retirement to stop Mulgrew's plan to explode a nuclear device in New York City.

Say what you want but I love this movie. After all, who doesn't love story's where a few brave warriors defeat all odds and the enemy to save the day!

Obviously not an Academy Award winner, but who cares. This is a total guy film. Not to forget, the late Robin Stille is a very attractive addition to the story.

Review from US Amazon : Ninja or Disney?

Here we get the "PG-13/Karate Kid wanna-be" version of American Ninja. David Bradley (American Ninja 3 & 4) returns but this time he plays a different character.

Another bummer is that now the great fight sequences are gone. The fights from the previous Ninja instalments are more tamed down, kid friendly battle scenes with Hiro making stupid comments every now and then.

It's as if the filmmakers were targeting fans of the Karate Kid series instead of fans the violent R-Rated American Ninja franchise. Mistake.

Summary Review: Repulsive little flick

A family moves into their new home, which proves to be evil, resulting in the demonic possession of the teenage son. Only the local priest can save him.

Amityville II: Possession is actually one impressively repulsive little flick, trafficking as it does in a massively dysfunctional family, incest, bloody murder, demonic possession, priests neglecting needy parishioners to go romping off on a hunting expedition, heads exploding like rotten melons, and lots of nasty creepy slimy things factory designed to go bump in the night.

I wasn't expecting anything at all from Amityville 2, so imagine my surprise when I found a full-bore, absolutely relentless, tastily atmospheric little horror flick that practically exuded evil through its pores: Amityville 2: Possession is certainly not for the fainthearted.

Summary Review: Aquatic serial killer

A mysterious diver hiding in Amsterdam's canal system embarks on a rampage of gruesome murders, terrifying city officials and leaving few clues for the city's best detective.

Dutch director Dick Maas clearly has a flair for entertainment. This serial killer film is lifted above the norm by a series of fantastic sequences; from creepy murder scenes to a hilariously over the top speed boat chase through the canals of Amsterdam, Amsterdamned is a delight to watch from start to finish.

Dick Maas bombards the audience with stunning location shots, deliriously entertaining sequences and some very sinister moments of horror to ensure that Amsterdamned never becomes trite or dull - and besides, every time there's a danger of the film going downhill, our competent director is on hand with another grisly murder sequence! The atmosphere is always foreboding as it is made clear that the murderer could strike at any time.

Promotional Material

It was for her part in classic Italian shockers like BLACK BELLY OF THE TARANTULA and DON T TORTURE A DUCKLING that cemented Barbara Bouchet s status as one of the most libidinous icons of Euro-cult cinema. Happily, Silvio Amadio's saucy thriller AMUCK! fits snugly into this giallo-centric category too, and here Bouchet stars as Greta; a nubile young secretary under the recent employment of the cravat-wearing Richard (Farley Granger ROPE).
