Ecco + The Forbidden 02/19/19
Those scurrilous Italian ‘mondo’ films are difficult to see in original versions; this Something Weird double bill yields an American hybrid of one of the better (?) examples, given the classy touch of a narration by George Sanders. A second oversexed psuedo- docu is a homegrown mongrel (careful, don’t touch) with all the credibility of today’s Reality TV — it doesn’t even try to be legit. Once again, Severin comes through with a doubly guilty pleasure, for sex-starved carnival suckers everywhere. Contains a new interview with a colleague (co-defendant) of producer-writer Bob Cresse. On Blu-ray from Severin Films/Something Weird.
