Exotic erotic thriller.
10 January 2015 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

The action of "Il Corpo" takes place on a beautiful Caribbean island of Trinidad.A boat captain Antoine(Enrico Maria Salerno)offers Alain (Leonard Mann)a job plus a place to stay.Antoine has a beautiful girlfriend named Princesse(Zeudi Araya).Alain quickly falls in love with Princesse after having sex with her on the beach.Princesse wants him to love her,but to prove his ever-lasting love Alain must kill Antoine.Very sensual erotic thriller with lovely Zeudi Araya providing some full-frontal nudity.I haven't seen "La Ragazza dalla Pelle di Luna" with her but I would like to someday.The climatic airport chase is tragic and kind of unexpected.I wouldn't call "Il Corpo" a giallo,it's more like erotic thriller set on an exotic Caribbean island.7 corpses out of 10.
