gang of bored, rich teens, led by a sociopath named Marco, rules his
crew in a clubhouse decorated with Nazi flags and photos of the Führer.
Obsessed with anarchy and far-right politics, Marco hates everyone different
from him. He is also a misogynist who leads his gang into a constant
frenzy of torture, rape and ultimately murder against women. The notorious
activities in the clubhouse inspires another gang (of ghetto street
kids) to adopt the same twisted behavior.
is a twisted - yet begrudgingly fascinating - nihilistic film from director
Renato Savino, a scriptwriter who usually wrote under the name Mauro
Stefani and often worked as an assistant director to Antonio Margheriti
YOU DIE). He retired from the Industry after this film.
Gino Milli was an interesting choice for the brutal
Marco, his babyface seemed to constantly work against the evil brewing
beneath the surface. He's no stranger to the genre, having starred in
FIRST DIE LATER & TERROR
EXPRESS, but he's best known for the role of Aladdin in FINALLY,
THE 1001 NIGHTS.
The main two female stars were well-known to
fans of European exploitation cinema. Cristina Businari made very few
movies but she was the winner of Miss Italy 1967. Her first film was
the Spaghetti Western I
WANT HIM DEAD the same year. Her co-star here, Sara Crespi,
followed this project with Paolo Cavara's PLOT
OF FEAR and then NAZI
LOVE CAMP 27 before retiring to get married at age 29.
