Beatrice Cenci (1969)

Beatrice Cenci (1969, ITA) C-99m. ** D: Lucio Fulci. Starring Adrienne Larussa, Antonio Casagrande, Tomas Milian, Raymond Pellegrin, Georges Wilson. In 1599, the aristocratic Cenci family are accused of heresy and must flee from the wrath of the Pope. When the tyrannical head of the family falls prey to an intrigue and dies, his daughter, beautiful Beatrice (Larussa) is accused of murder. Confusing narrative hampers proceedings, but drama is well-acted, generally not bad. Surprisingly straight stuff from Fulci, the sixth filmization of the story (1956 version was directed by Riccardo Freda). Also known as PERVERSION STORY.
