An erotic and surreal odyssey of violence... A stylized limo voyage of depravity and death.

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'').

Promotional Material

Former Bond star George Lazenby ( On Her Majesty s Secret Service , The Man from Hong Kong ) headlines this classic giallo directed by Aldo Lado ( Short Night of Glass Dolls , Night Train Murders ) as compelling for its haunting atmosphere, twists and turns as for its parallels with another great Venetian horror/thriller Nicolas Roeg s Don t Look Now .

Sculptor Franco Serpieri (Lazenby) welcomes Roberta (Nicoletta Elmi, Deep Red ) his young daughter from a failed marriage to Venice, unaware that a disturbed child-killer is stalking the city s canals. When Roberta s body is found floating face-down in the river, the lives of Franco and his estranged wife Elizabeth (Anita Strindberg, The Case of the Scorpion s Tail ) are ripped asunder. Desperate for vengeance, Franco turns detective in a bid to track down his daughter s killer, and in the process unearths shocking evidence of depravity and corruption which implicates some of the most respected figures in Venetian society.

Released at the height of the giallo boom, this gripping mystery thriller boasts some of the most iconic names associated with the genre on both sides of the camera. Co-starring Dominique Boschero ( The Iguana with the Tongue of Fire ) and Adolfo Celi ( Thunderball ), and featuring one of the all-time greatest scores from maestro Ennio Morricone ( What Have You Done to Solange? ), Who Saw Her Die? thrills anew in its high definition debut.

When captured by natives, they witness the shocking metamorphosis of one of the old women into a young girl. But this "magic" is short-lived ... and, as the Talbots soon learn, requires a male sacrifice!

    In a post-nuclear holocaust wasteland, Sam Hell ( "Rowdy" Roddy Piper ) is like most other survivors; a nomadic scavenger roaming the bombed out remnants of the world for food and survival gear. But Sam is also harboring a major secret that even he isn't aware of: he's the last fertile man on Earth. As unexpected pregnancies are discovered, the remnants of the government decide to capture him and, with the aid of scientist Spangle, fit him with a secure chastity belt to ensure his virility is used only when needed. After learning of a group of supposed virgins who are being held captive by frog-mutant savages, Sam is sent on a rescue mission to free the women and then, of course, impregnate them. Is he up for the job? You bet...

    An 'only in the 80s' hybrid of post apocalyptic sci-fi weirdness, cynical humor, and horror touches, director Donald G. Jackson's HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN is every bit as crazy as its title implies. Co-starring Sandahl Bergman ( Conan the Barbarian ), Rory Calhoun ( Angel ), and featuring a supporting performance from Nicholas Worth ( Don't Answer the Phone ), Vinegar Syndrome presents HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN on Blu-ray in North America for the first time, in a brand new, 4k restoration.
