original Italian title H. P. LOVECRAFT'S TWO LEFT ARMS
also known as NIGHT
Domiziano Delvaux Cristopharo and Adam Rehmeier
starring: Yvonne Scio · Paolo Stella · Ruggero Deodato · Frank Laloggia
· Carlo De Mejo
art conservator named Carter Young travels to Secinaro Italy from the
United States to restore a fresco painted on the wall of an old church.
After arriving in the rural town, Carter soon discovers the locals are
hiding a secret related to a nearby lake which - according to legend -
was created by a meteor. He befriends Emma Galliani who tells him the
lake holds clues to something sinister which threatens to challenge the
foundation of Christianity.
After directing the sado shocker BUNNY
GAME, filmmaker Adam Reheier left the U.S. for Italy where he
collaborated with Domiziano Christophero on this film. While based on
the H P Lovecraft writings, the film also liberally borrows the set-up
from Pupi Avati's HOUSE
WITH WINDOWS THAT LAUGH.
Of course, Ruggero Deodato is best known as a film director,
but he often made cameos in his own movies (i.e., DIAL
AND RUN, PHANTOM
OF DEATH and even CANNIBAL
HOLOCAUST. Here is a rare appearance in someone else's film
(pic above center).
This would also be the last movie for cult actor
Carlo De Mejo. He died from a heart attack at age 70, December 2015. His
career stretched over four decades and numerous genre productions, from
LIQUID SUBWAY TO OBLIVION to THE
OTHER HELL, from Lucio Fulci's CITY
OF THE LIVING DEAD to ALIEN
CONTAMINATION. (pic below left)
