Death By Sex, Italian Style
2 December 1998 | by (Canterbury, England) – See all my reviews

You may have thought the (pretty daft) plot idea of killing a man by making him have too much and too intensive sexual intercourse originated from the American Erotic Thriller of the late 80s or early 90s. In that case you were wrong. The idea popped up a few times in 70s Italian exploiters (and probably earlier than that) and this film is a perfect example. Erna Schurer is the femme fatale who avenges the financial misfortune of her father by entering the life of the culprit, seducing him, marrying him and then bonking him to death. The lucky b******.
