Code Red will be re-issuing director Roberto Bianchi Montero’s classic giallo thriller, So Sweet, So Dead (1972) on Blu-ray.
A naked woman is found murdered and mutilated in a prosperous small province town in Southern Italy. But who killed her… and why? Inspector Capuana (Farley Granger; Strangers on a Train, Rope, Arnold) investigates what turns out to be a string of savage murders in which unfaithful women are targeted as they play around behind their husbands’ backs. Now the killer, who wears a black fedora, gloves, and trench coat as he stalks and photographs his victims, is becoming more relentless in a depraved quest to purge the world of what he believes to be immoral souls.
Also starring Sylva Koscina (Lisa and the Devil, Hercules, Hornet’s Nest), this notorious Italian shocker is also known as So Sweet, So Dead is now presented fully authorized and in HD!
An unusually good script punctuates this tale about a depraved avenger of morality snuffing out licentious Italian housewives married to men of stature.CoolAssCinema.com
