Ragazza Tutta Nuda Assassinata nel Parco (1972)

Ragazza Tutta Nuda Assassinata nel Parco (1972, ITA/SPA) C-92m. *** D: Alfonso Brescia. Starring Robert Hoffmann, Irina Demick, Pilar Velásquez, Teresa Gimpera, Howard Ross, Patrizia Adiutori, Adolfo Celi, Philippe Leroy. When a rich man is found murdered after taking a ride in an amusement park's Tunnel of Horrors, an insurance company assigns its best agent (Hoffmann) to investigate, since the man signed an insurancy policy worth one million an hour before he died. The agent falls in love with the daughter, beautiful Velásquez, and is introduced to her eccentric family. Just who is threatening them on the phone with details about the murder? Barely logical but unpredictable giallo, stylishly directed by Brescia and endowed with an excellent Carlo Savina score, which is at times touching, at times eerie. An obscure cult movie gem, worth (re-)discovering. English titles: NAKED GIRL KILLED IN THE PARK, and THAT CURSED HOUSE CLOSE TO THE MUSHROOM BELT.
