An overlooked Lucio Fulci film, Beatrice Cenci (1969), is given a new light by 88 Films on this brand new 2K restoration Blu-ray. Stars Tomas Milian and Adrienne Larussa.
Tomas Milian (Syndicate Sadists), Adrienne Laurussa (The Man Who Fell to Earth) and Georges Wilson (Don’t Torture a Duckling) co-star in this brutal retelling of the Cenci family. The film depicts the horrific events that led to the demise of one of Italy’s most prestigious families, through two timelines we establish how, and why, this much-loved family was sent to the guillotine in 1599.
Based on the tragic true story, Beatrice Cenci (A.K.A The Conspiracy of Torture) shook Italy to its very core upon release in 1969 thanks to its strong condemnation of the Catholic church and set Lucio Fulci on a collision course with the graphic violence that would become synonymous with his most popular works.
Considered by Fulci himself to be his finest cinematic work, 88 Films are proud to unveil the prized possession within a legendary career. Prepare to witness the birth of the Godfather of Gore, finally uncut, uncensored and unleashed for the very first time in the UK!
