3.0 out of 5 stars Good Euro-Sleaze September 2, 2005
Format:DVD
Famed film producer, and all around sleaze-meister, Dick Randall tossed this slice of steamy Eurocult into the, then, very popular Giallo ring, and soon came away a winner. None-too-prolific F. L. Morris (this being his third and final film) was brought in for the directing duties and a cast to end all casts was assembled to round out a rather stylish though derivative murder and sex mystery.

As with most films of this type the plot is so chock full of improbabilities that it nearly borders on tedium. The narrative simply twists and turns itself inside out to the point of complete absurdity. However, some of the key elements and highlights include: a jewel heist, an all-knowing-all-seeing medium, a brothel, hooded killers, a mad scientist, incredibly sexy women, incest, human eyeball fondling and a professional Humphrey Bogart look-a-like!

With all of this swirling about, the meandering storyline easily takes a backseat to the obligatory naked female flesh and gory set pieces. Topless hotties, beheadings and stabbings aplenty. Oh, and the groovy soundtrack by one of Europe's finest, Bruno Nicolai, is worthy of a mention as well.

Producer Randall was famous for selling his movies to various markets across the globe and so the film was, not so surprisingly, host to a mint of alternate titles, including: "The Bogeyman and the French Sex Murders," "Murders in Paris," "The Paris Sex Murders," "Casa d'appuntameto" and "Auge des Bösen." Mondo Macabro did a wonderful job on the extras that include an essay by Pete Tombs about the film and its distribution, a 30 minute documentary on producer Dick Randall, 2 deleted scenes and a stockpile of stills, posters and various press materials.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre Giallo From Exploitation King Dick Randall April 1, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Mondo Macabro has done an excellent job of releasing a lot of bizarre, campy European exploitation films of which "French Sex Murders" is a prime example. It was produced by Dick Randall, king of the sleazy exploitation film. Like Alfred Hitchcock, he often made brief cameos in his films. In "French Sex Murders," he was a customer at a brothel where a prostitute has been found beat to death. An innocent man is convicted; he curses all those who testified against him. While trying to escape on a motorcycle, he is beheaded. Soon afterwards, every one he cursed is murdered in gruesome fashion: beheading, eye gouging, throat slashing, etc.

This bizarre giallo never has a dull moment. It begins with a flashback - someone falls to their death from the Eiffel Tower. There are numerous chase scenes, plenty of gruesome killings (including a triple murder), and some gratuitous sex that borders on porn. Strange characters include a doctor who insists on having the decapitated head of the accused murderer in order to gouge out the eyeballs for examination. The cast of actors include stars from all over Europe. One of my personal favorites is lovely giallo scream queen Barbara Bouchet who is Francine - the first prostitute to die. She starred in numerous gialli including "The Red Queen Kills Seven Times," "The Black Belly of the Tarantula," and "Don't Torture a Duckling." A beautiful, dreamy score has been provided by Bruno Nicolai who has composed the music for many gialli such as "Death Walks on High Heels," "The Case of the Scorpion's Tail," and "The Night Evelyn Came Out of Her Grave."

Dick Randall's films were low budget imitations of more successful ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ooh La La! Fun Euro-Sleaze Thriller! June 4, 2012
Format:DVD
FRENCH SEX MURDERS (1972) is a heady Eurocult stew as only exploitation-meister Dick Randall could come up with! The film is a giallo (one of my favorite sub-genres) in the tradition of Mario Bava's BLOOD AND BLACK LACE, Paolo Cavara's BLACK BELLY OF THE TARANTULA, and Andrea Bianchi's later film, STRIP NUDE FOR YOUR KILLER. The cast is amazing: you have Anita Ekberg, Rosalba Neri, Jess Franco veteran Howard Vernon, Barbara Bouchet, Evelyne Kraft, and Bogart-lookalike Robert Sacchi. As for the plot itself, it concerns the murders of several ladies of the evening with one bizarre twist at the end! The visual effects are by Carlo Rambaldi, who would go on to work on Dario Argento's DEEP RED and the legendary films ALIEN and E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL among others! Plus, the editing was done by none other than Bruno Mattei, who would go on to unleash the most prolific bad-movie ripoffs in Italian cinema during the 1980's, such as HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD and RATS: NIGHT OF TERROR!

Mondo Macabro did a fine job with this DVD; they assembled the longest possible cut from various sources and it looks great. Two deleted scenes are included, both of which explain the motivations of central characters. We also get a documentary on Mr. Randall, a stills gallery, and a trailer reel for other Mondo Macabro products! Highly recommended!
