Orgasmo (Paranoia)

I'll start off with one of my favourite acquisitions since I last posted. The locandina for Umberto Lenzi's 1969 giallo, Orgasmo, has been a bit difficult to find, so I was very pleased to finally get my hands on it.
This isn't Lenzi's best giallo (that honour goes to Paranoia if you ask me), but since the copy I own is a decent looking but badly cropped tv print, I feel I owe it another chance. As far as I know this is the only Lenzi giallo that's hasn't received a DVD release anywhere in the world yet, but Lenzi mentioned in
this previously linked interview that one is in the works. No info on the poster artist.

Welcome back, Peter! I can see you were indeed very busy adding to your amazing collection while on break. ORGASMO is not my favourite Lenzi giallo either, but I still had a lot of fun with it. I would more than welcome a DVD release of it.

Thanks Brian. I've been lucky enough to find a few during my break. Not as many as I would have wanted to though :)
I've got another Lenzi one coming up next week that I'm sure will appeal to you.
