Great Italian erotic thriller.
12 December 2014 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Tony Musante of "Bird with the Crystal Plumage" fame plays Michael Parker,rich and successful American businessman who lives with his girlfriend in Italy.Fifteen years ago he had sex with Marie(Cristina Marsillach)and left her without explanation.When his girlfriend and her kid leave him for Christmas Michael decides to have an affair with his sexy neighbour.But this time Marie(Laura Antonelli)is going to kidnap him and put Michael chained to bed in her bedroom.Jacqueline,Marie's nubile preteen daughter also desires Michael and wants him only for herself."La Gabbia" was co-scripted by Lucio Fulci and Francesco Barilli.It's quite stylish and moody erotic thriller with some graphic nudity provided by sisters Cristina and Blanca Marsillach.Antonelli has lovely masturbation scene too.8 fatal attractions out of 10.
