nothing to a beast with nine lives. This film puts the 'ow' in meow!
"Like an imaginary Edvard Munch
painting where you notice that one of the mourners at a funeral is turning to
the viewer and giving them a knowing wink." - Hysteria Lives
"This film is well deserving of 95
minutes of anyone’s time." - The Celluloid Highway
"Margheriti goes wacko with the
camera and makes every damn scene interesting and fun to watch." -
MacGrieff's, a wealthy Scottish family, are rocked by a grisly murder on their
estate. The youngest, Corringa (Jane Birkin, Blowup), finds herself
embroiled in an increasingly bizarre saga. As the bodies pile up,
Corringa starts suspecting someone within her own family of the murders, is it
her arrogant cousin, James (Hiram Keller, Fellini's Satyricon)? Their
seductive French teacher, Suzanne (Doris Kunstmann, Funny Games)? Her own
mother, Alicia (Dana Ghia, My Dear Killer)? Or can the legend of the
MacGrieff family be true? That any MacGrieff killed by the hands of
another will bring about a vengeful curse on the whole clan.
this cult thriller directed by the great, Italian film legend, Antonio
Margheriti (The Long Hair of Death). Well known in the U.S. for his
special effects (he was Stanley Kubrick's original choice for special effects
director on 2001: A Space Odyssey, but Margheriti turned him down) and as a
kind of Italian Ed Wood due to his primordial and innovative science fiction
films of the early sixties.
Margheriti brings us a gothic thriller set in a Scottish castle among vampires,
crazy noblemen. evil doctors, a cat, a gorilla, and featuring the most
scandalous couple of the period, French chansonnier Serge Gainsbourg (in the
role of a police chief) and a very young Jane Birkin. Riz Ortolani
(Cannibal Holocaust) supplies a beautiful score to this lushly shot
creeper. An interesting note: The cat in the film's title is none other
than Margheriti's own cat Mushi.
