The classy 'Smile Before Death' is an extremely rare and unjustly obscure giallo from cult Italian film-maker, Silvio Amadio. This violent, sexy thriller stars the delightful, Rosalba Neri and Hiram Keller as a villainous duo plotting to do in the stepdaughter of Hiram's character.
Director, Silvio Amadio's stylish and sexy follow-up to "Amuck!", is full of giddy plot twists, lurid stalk an' slash, and the ubiquitous "shock" ending; 'Smile before Death' is guaranteed to amuse and confound in equal measure, and is a worthy entry to this most histrionic idiom. Its current rarity is wholly undeserved and one hopes that eventually it will get a pristine DVD release that it so deserves.
