I don’t know if I’ll get around to writing about all the Lucio Fulci films that have recently been released and re-released on DVD anytime soon, but I recently wrote about Fulci’s Perversion Story (Una sull’altra, 1969) for Cinedelica which was released by Severin Films late last month.
Perversion Story is a great erotic thriller and I wouldn’t necessarily refer to it as a “giallo film” because it’s so different from the typical gialli releases that have gotten released in the US but it’s been called a giallo by lots of other reviewers. It does seem like that term is getting tossed around a lot lately by critics and DVD companies that and use it to describe any Italian thriller.
But enough of my silly complaints… Perversion Story has become one of my favorite Fulci’s films and I’m so grateful that it’s been released on DVD. If you enjoy stylish Italian thrillers please stop by Cinedelica and give my review a look. The movie stars the lovely Marisa Mell who happens to be one of my favorite actresses and it also has a fantastic score by composer Riz Ortolani. Severin’s Perversion Story is easily one of the best DVD releases of the year so far. Can’t recommend it enough!
