Man, there's something about seventies Umberto Lenzi films.
This one, which he made either right before or right after Deep River Savages, concerns two smug hippies running (literally - they run everywhere!) around Italy being annoying, having a great sex life (annoying, I've got two small kids who are the best contraceptives ever), being free spirits (wish I had the time but I'm too busy earning money to buy nappies), and stealing stuff (also annoying). They end up being mistaken for another equally annoying couple and therefore do a runner or something...or maybe it was something to do with selling pervy pictures...
Anyway - they end up at this house and that's where the mystery and intrigue start, I ain't one for spoiling a good Italian movie. Lenzi is very smart with this film...not even particularly bothered about whether or not the audience understands where the film is heading until about the one hour mark. If you don't have two small kids then you could possibly have enough time to actually sit down and watch this one
It's another beauty from the man whose mental health would give us
'Ghosthouse' and 'House of the Damn it Can't Even Remember the title of this one due to lack of sleep (two small kids)...
Shameless, bless them, have given us a good copy...my only beef with Shameless is the photographic archiving of every dirty bit from the film on the back of the DVD - Cheers for making me feel like a dirty old man!
