Blu-Ray News #363: Bloody Pit Of Horror (1965).

Directed by Massimo Pupillo
Starring Mickey Hargitay, Walter Brandi, Luisa Baratto, Rita Klein, Alfredo Rizzo, Femi Benussi

If you’re looking for about an hour and a half of 60s Italian horror/peplum weirdness, you won’t do much better than Massimo Pupillo’s Bloody Pit Of Horror (1965). It’s got Mickey Hargitay in a wonderfully whacked-out performance as The Crimson Executioner, dragging a number of Italian beauties to his torture chamber to satisfy his vile desires. This is easily one of the most flat-out crazy movies I’ve ever seen.

Severin Films is bringing it to Blu-Ray with a 2K scan of the uncut camera negative, padded out with a nice slate of extras. Certainly not for all tastes, but if you’re a fan of such nonsense, this one comes highly recommended.
