Editorial Reviews

From the writer of Caliber 9 and The Italian Connection comes Madness, starring Joe Dallesandro, a story about how a violent criminal, Joe Brezzi, breaks out of prison and, having stolen a car and killed two people in the process, makes his way to a remote country cottage. Hidden beneath its flooring are the substantial proceeds from a robbery which Joe took part in several years previously, but before he can retrieve the loot the owners of the cabin return, changing Joe's plans from a simple break-in to murder.

Pity poor Gio Brezzi who's not having a good day. He escapes from prison , kills two farmers for their car and proceeds to a country house where he buried 300 million lire 5 years previous but now finds it occupied by a trio of misfits who he must get out of the way in order to collect the spoils. This is the premise of the latest release from Raro Video ,Director/Screenwriter Fernando Di Leo's 'MADNESS' aka 'VACANZE PER UN MASSACRO'- 1980. Basically a four character play, the film cannot be pinned down to any genre and it may not be for everyone with its doses of kinky sex and violence but you can say one thing, you cannot take your eyes off the screen. The film has a surprisingly good performance by Andy Warhol alumnus Joe Dallesandro as Gio but the real scene stealer is the sex pot performance by actress Lorraine De Selle who sexually manipulates both her sisters husband and Gio. Director Di Leo keeps the movie moving at a rapid clip till its incredible climactic punch line due to an excellent classical rock music score by Luis Enrico Bacalov who scored many a Spaghetti Western including Director Sergio Corbuccis's classic 'DJANGO' -1966 which can now be heard in Director Quentin Tarantino's small hommage to the Euro Western 'DJANGO UNCHAINED'. He completely fills the movie landscape as the score bursts forth endlessly in the background and out of the car radios and transistor radios used by the characters. Raro Video releases the film in a beautiful 1.85 transfer in Italian with English subtitles but skimpy on the extras with a Director Biography and Filmography also found in the illustrated booklet provided within the slipcase.Read more ›

Fernando Di Leo must be one of the most underrated Italian movie directors of the 20th century. Too bad so little of his films have been released mainstream, the folks who really appreciate grindhouse cinema would definitely enjoy watching his phenomenal films, which are saturated with exquisite sex scenes, amazing music scores, and brutality. After viewing his collection of movies from the 1970's few years ago (among which were: Caliber 9, The Italian Connection, The Boss, Shoot First, Die Later, or Kidnap Syndicate), I knew what I was to expect before I sat down to watch Madness (1980). The film is about an escaped convict Gino (Joe Dallesandro) who after stealing a car heads towards a cottage where years before he stashed away a loot from a robbery. When he arrives at the cottage he notices that it is occupied with a "dysfunctional" family, a sexy but naïve wife, macho wannabe husband, and the sleazy sister-in-law. What fallows next one can imagine...

The poster on the DVD is actually very misleading...no cleaver is being used in this film, but rather a pickaxe and an old-school double-barreled shotgun. Also, there is really not much violence in this film...there is plenty of tension, and even more of great music. The soundtrack includes music by: New Trolls, Luis Bacalov, and Roberto Soffici. The first sex scene in the film performed by the husband (Gianni Macchia) and wife (Patrizia Behn) is without a doubt in my mind, one the hottest/erotic scenes I watched in a long time. Add to that the song "Dimenticare" by Roberto Soffici and I guarantee that after watching the scene you will be aroused...Patrizia Behn who plays Lillian the wife of Sergio is beyond sexy...
