La Moglie giovane (Savage City)

The Mya dvd of this Maria Mell starring thriller is finally out under the title Death Will Have Your Eyes. The dvd certainly isn't anything to write home about (it basically looks like a pretty poor VHS copy) and while the film is more like a jet-set/home invasion type thriller than your typical giallo, I'd say it's worth a look. No info on who's responsible poster art.

Pathos - segreta inquietudine (Obsession: A Taste for Fear)

Piccio Raffanini's erotic thriller is something as odd as a futuristic giallo. Obviously the budget restraints stops it from going all Blade Runner on us, but it does feature a few "futuristic" cars and ray guns. It basically looks like an 80's rock video, complete with dancing dwarves, Kid Creole and more nudity more than you can shake a stick at.

It's not a good film by any stretch of the imagination, but I have to say that it's quite entertaining and I wouldn't mind a dvd at some point.

The poster, with artwork by Sciotti, took me quite some time to find but here it is, in all it's 80's glory.
