Ore di terrore aka "Kreuzfahrt des Grauens" is an Italian exploitation movie, inspired by the 68-student revolutions.
The plot (SPOILERS AHEAD): Some businessmen, politicians and (as I must admit, good-looking) women come together on a cruise-ship, after a while they discover a container floating in the sea. They free three men from the container, a really bad idea, as the three men are convicted murders (which are mentally insane, as the film mentions about 20 times). Now terror rules the ship. Will the businessmen - and their women - survive?
Who cares in the end. The movie is bad in acting (one of the worst performances of the later Austrian-Green-Party-MP Herbert Fux), camera, score, natural sound, editing - but really overloaded with moral issues like (a) "who are the real gangsters - businessmen or insane murderers", (b) the role of women in the society in general, or (c) "isn't our society decadent".
The answers - according to "ore di terrore": (a) both, (b) exploited by men, but if they are nude enough, they are just cute, (c) yes, it is.
One major feature of this movie is the absolute absence of humor, which makes it quite hard to watch the whole 90 minutes or so. I did it - and it was not worth the effort.
Rating: 2 black gloves out of 10.
