Italian Genre Cinema Collection No. 16
Synopsis: Pretty Greta travels from London to Italy in order to start her new job as a secretary for the successful writer Richard Stuart who lives in a remote villa near Venice together with his seductive lady friend Eleonora. Greta’s friend Sally – who also used to work for Richard – has disappeared for inexplicable and mysterious reasons. In collaboration with the ambitious local commissioner Antonelli, Greta follows the tracks of her missing girlfriend and stumbles into a raging maelstrom of lust, violence, debauchery and sex. What kind of game are Richard and Eleonora playing? What mystery harbors the venerable old house? What secret holds the silent fisherman Rocco? The more Greta investigates, the more she gets herself into mortal danger.
Silvio Amadio’s Amuck! is an erotic thriller extraordinaire. Very much in the tradition of the giallo, the film doesn’t hold back on visual charms and eye candy. With Barbara Bouchet and Rosalba Neri, the suspenseful story unites two grand dames of the Italian genre cinema while Hitchcock veteran Farley Granger shines as the leading man. Amuck! is seduction, erotism and violence – a true gem in the annals of European genre cinema.
