Description: One of my favorite movies – encompasses a mood rather than a story. Klaus Kinski stars in this hazy beautiful Giallo with a haunting dreamy soundtrack. So what if the story doesn’t really make sense? After Greta’s death because of failure abortation with ancient magic she was brought back to life by his brother. Her existence now is subordinated to a single goal – revenge.
Review: “Death Smiles on a Murderer” – the first film directorial operator Joe D-Amato, and the only one on which he signed his real name – Aristide Massachezi. This Italian potboiler known mainly by the fact that he managed to mix horror about cannibals with full pornography. Already in the 80 years of the 20th century it became more and more deeply into jungle standard Italian porn (and not the best spill), but in the end – is caught up in it up to their ears until his death. He shot an endless series of films about the ridiculous “Black Emanuel,” “Housewives prefer stallions”, “Porno Holocaust” and “erotic pleasure” mixed with “Zombie 5” and “cannibalism.” In his films never had no taste, no tact, no style, no meaning.
