With "Cannibal Holocaust"(1979)being one of my favourite horror films,I looked forward to seeing this film the second I heard about it.And finally the search is over!"House on the Edge of the Park" is a truly shocking film,which makes other of its kind(like "Last House on the Left")tame in comparison.Here's the plot:David A.Hess plays Alex,a rapist/killer who rapes and murders a young woman in the car.After that,he and his buddy Ricky(Giovanni Lombardo Radice)go to a high society party.The orgy of violence begins there...Beware:this film contains some of the most shocking and disturbing scenes ever put to film.Especially the scene,when a young Cindy(Brigitte Petronio)is humiliated and tortured with a razor by Alex,is really sick and hard to forget.The musical score by Riz Ortolani is perfect(pretty funky-I might add!)and there are some memorable lines here.The cast is pretty good(Lorraine de Selle from "Cannibal Ferox" is almost likable as Gloria)and the film is well-written and cleverly-made.Definitely one to avoid if you don't like strong stuff.However if you're fed up with boring Hollywood's trash,then this exploitation gem is not to be missed.
