“A love letter to the works of David Cronenberg and Jess Franco, executed in D’Amato’s unique take on the giallo film”. ~ Film Bizarro
Selected as #13 in Film Bizarro’s “Top 30 of 2017”! A young man is accused of his ex-girlfriend’s murder. Before he’s formally charged by the police, he sets out on a two-day odyssey to find the real killer – tracking down his leads from the backseat of a rented limousine; which allows him to contemplate class society, life in the city, and the grime that runs in the small nooks and valleys of cosmopolitan life. Like the earlier works of Vince D’Amato for his Brivido Giallo trilogy, this wildly kinetic and erotic film moves through a world of contemporary, wordless, operatic imagery of sex and violence. Odissea della Morte features the talents of several cult film actors, including Momona Komagata (“Peelers”), Dan Ellis (“Bloodshock”), burlesque starlet Tristan Risk (“American Mary”, “Amazon Hot Box”), and cult icon Lynn Lowry (“Shivers”, “The Crazies”, and 1982’s “Cat People”).
Directed by: Vince D’Amato (Vampires vs. Zombies; Glass). Starring: Momona Komagata (Peelers), Tristan Risk (The Editor, American Mary), Lynn Lowry (Cat People).
