It seems after the success of the fine thriller "La Orca" director Eriprando Visconti saw a way to make some more money, by continuing a story that should have ended with the first film. The young girl, released from her captivity, returns home to pout and scream and have numerous "flashbacks" which materialize in endless clips from the first movie. "Oedipus Orca" immediately dissolves into a turgid soap opera, when the girl embarks on a quest to find out if an old family friend had an affair with her mother years ago, and as a result could be her real father. Rather than following a more interesting story about the girl and her anger at her stepfather for not paying her ransom in the first film, we get a lot of nudity. And badly filmed sex scenes. This film is pointless in every way, and the director must have realised this, as he decided to stick in completely repulsive footage of cattle being shot in the head, gutted and skinned and decapitated on camera, in a scene that seems to go on forever. A scene that has absolutely nothing to do with the story at all. The tasteless scene only exposes the film for the garbage that it really is. It is hard to believe after seeing this one that director Eriprando Visconti is the nephew of Luchino Visconti, a man known for beautiful and tasteful art-house films. The original film "La Orca" is a very good film, but this sequel is so bad that it almost hurts the original. I wish I never saw this garbage.
