Product Description


When the mutilated corpse of a young woman is found on an Australian beach, retired detective Thompson (Oscar(r) winner Ray Milland of THE LOST WEEKEND and DIAL M FOR MURDER) involves himself in the investigation. But before they can find the killer, the police must first identify the victim. Who was this once-beautiful girl found clad only in yellow pyjamas? Why would the authorities put her nude body on public display? What sexual depravity did she endure before her murder? And even if Thompson can crack the baffling case, will he survive to see her killer brought to justice?

Mel Ferrer (THE ANTICHRIST, NIGHTMARE CITY), Howard Ross (THE NEW YORK RIPPER) and the luscious Dalila Di Lazzaro (FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN, PHENOMENA) co-star in this unique giallo written and directed by Flavio Mogherini and featuring a pounding score by Riz Ortolani (MONDO CANE).

Format: DVD
On the books this film is a giallo, but it is only in the most basic sense. Yeah it's a murder mystery, it deals with sexual themes and it's Italian. That's where all comparissons end though. No rampaging killer with gloves and a hat/hood and no real body count to speak of other than the Pyjama girl herself. Sure there are a few more deaths, but not until the end of the film. There are basically two plotlines running throughout the film. The first is the investigation into the dead woman that's led by two detectives(one of them Ray Milland). Once the second plot begins, it ends up taking up about 75% of the film. This deals with the yummy Dalila Di Lazzaro(yummy except for the armpit hair) trying to juggle three lovers. She sleeps with just about everyone but poor Milland. The film pretty much becomes a drama in the Lifetime Original Movie vein. No suspense, no killer stalking anyone. In fact, as you get more and more tangled into the story, you nearly forget there was a murder mystery at the heart of all this! Ray Milland seems to just diappear about an hour into the film. Before you know it, you're asking yourself, "Hey, wasn't Ray Milland in this film?" It's like Milland only had a two day shooting schedule and his time ran out before director Mogherini could shoot all his scenes. His character is funny though. Even with my complaints, I was never bored with this movie, just not terribly impressed. But if anyone should find it boring, you can always dance around your living room to the funky Riz Ortolani score. The disc has a half hour documentary about the actual Pyjama girl murder case which is actually more interesting than the film.

This giallo about a Australian murder case is almost a true story. It has the same names as the real people but in fact the real murder took place in 1934. And this movie is taking place in the 1970's. In fact the whole movie other than a few facts is fiction. After watching the authors interview one can only hope that the true story is finally told in film someday in a proper manner. That being said this is a good mystery movie. It is a bit confusing though as we watch the investigation run by the great actor Ray Milland and the story of the pajama girl intertwined. It isn't made clear that this is the dead girl until the end. That her story is taking place in the past while Millands hunt is in the present. The acting is good in this movie though and the story is a standard murder mystery. Blue Underground did a great jobn with this giallo but they have yet to get many other greater giallos out for some reason. Truth is often better than fiction and I while this is a good mystery movie they shouldn't have bothered to uee the real peoples names as the story is different, and too often filmakers don't even bother to try to tell a true story. They change too many facts and in this case nothing accept the names and the public showing of the victims body are the same. Still it's a good little mystery movie if you take it as fiction.

By Shaun Anderson on February 5, 2008
Format: DVD
This is a slightly unusual and different film within the luridly camp Italian cinematic tradition known as the `giallo'. Although an Italian/Spanish co-production, directed by Italian Flavio Mogherini (perhaps best known as an art director and production designer) the film is set in Australia. The majority of `giallo's' rely significantly on their European locations (normally capital cities) and work into their narrative the anxieties of a modern world made up of morally vacuous jet setters and tourists. By displacing his largely European cast down under Mogherini proves that the `giallo' is a particularly durable form which need not rely on Europe for its contextual base. Even so the familiar story of a displaced foreigner falling foul of corruption and perversity remains intact. Two other innovations of Morgherini's effort is a particularly clever double narrative, two strands that initially appear unrelated come together in a very effective and surprising finale. The film is also based on true events, but as with all cinematic endeavours one must take into account the creative license required to produce a dramatic and entertaining film. With these three innovations intact it's a surprise that the direction is rather insipid and flat. The film hasn't dated too well, and lacks the gorgeous visuals of an Argento or Bava film; this is somewhat surprising considering the directors background as a designer. The film's innovations alone are not enough, and the whole thing is saved by a cool electronic score by Riz Ortolani (although the two songs featured in the film are dire) and a wonderfully grumpy turn by Welsh Hollywood legend Ray Milland as a 'retired' detective. Inspector Thompson provides the films humour, and when he departs from the film it leaves a yawning chasm.Read more ›
