Digitmovies presents once again Bruno Nicolai’s “The case of the scorpion's tail” (aka “La coda dello scorpione”), “The case of the bloody iris” (aka “Perché quelle strane gocce di sangue sul corpo di Jennifer?”), “All the colors of the dark” (aka “Tutti i colori del buio”) and “Your vice is a locked room and only I have the key” (aka “Il tuo vizio è una stanza chiusa e solo io ne ho la chiave”) OSTs on CD versions, in a deluxe box set. The four most thrilling and famous soundtracks composed by Maestro Bruno Nicolai re-live in this deluxe edition, after a long time of absence from
our catalogue. Like our best sellers “Sodoma and Gomorrah” (aka “Sodoma e Gomorrah”) and “Trinity is still my name” (aka“Continuavano a chiamarlo Trinità”), this reprint comes from many requests of collectors and from our willing to publish these wonderful OSTs once again, with brand new graphics, in a collector’s edition box set enriched with a booklet of 32 pages with movie and music annotations, pictures, posters reproductions and typographic molds of that time.
THE CASE OF THE SCORPION’S TAIL (LA CODA DELLO SCORPIONE)
Maestro Bruno Nicolai knew how to put in music the macabre homicides of that
event, writing a dissonant music soaked with elements of avant-garde and jazz. The
soundtrack is enriched by two romantic yet nostalgic themes, as background of the
love story of the protagonists. For this publication we used every take found in the
DIRECTION AND CAST
Directed by Sergio Martino in 1971 and starring Anita Strindberg, George Hilton,
Alberto De Mendoza, Evelyn Stewart, Luigi Pistilli.
Miss Baumer, widow because of an explosion of the plane on which her husband
Kurt was, goes to Athens to collect the insurance money. She receives one million
dollars but she gets brutally killed by a mysterious murderer, who steals all the
money. The case is followed by an official of the Interpol and a Greek policeman and,
later, by Cleo Dupont, young French journalist. The case gets muddled because of a
sequence of murders.
Second thriller movie directed by Sergio Martino, after the remarkable “The Strange
Vice of Mrs. Wardh” (aka “Lo strano vizio della signora Wardh”) released on
February 1971. The director wanted to give the protagonist part to Edwige Fenech,
but he had to change his mind, since she was pregnant. The role was given to
Swedish actress Anita Strindberg. The movie was filmed in Greece, Italy and
England. It was released in Italian theaters on August 16th, 1971.
YOUR VICE IS A LOCKED ROOM AND ONLY I HAVE A KEY (IL TUO VIZIO È UNA
STANZA CHIUSA E SOLO IO NE HO LA CHIAVE)
Maestro Bruno Nicolai wrote a monothematic score based on variations of a
nostalgic and romantic classical adagio for strings and harpsichord. All the horrifying
aspects of this story are described through a series of drammatic and atonal themes,
alternated to the classic adagio.
DIRECTION AND CAST
Directed by Sergio Martino in 1972 and starring Edwige Fenech, Anita Strindberg,
Luigi Pistilli, Ivan Rassimov, Franco Nebbia, Enrica Bonaccorti.
Professor Oliviero Ruevigny, failed writer, erotomaniac and alcoholic, stuck in a
marriage come to an end with his hated wife Irene, is suspected of killing one of his
young lovers. There are no clues to accuse him, though. After a while, in his villa, a
maid gets killed and her body disappears. Floriana arrives to the villa, she’s the
young and sassy niece of Oliviero who will take part in a series of depraved and
mysterious plots, which could be only solved by a black cat.
Fourth thriller of Martino, with erotic and gothic elements and a finale inspired by
Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Black Cat” (aka “Il gatto nero”). Shot in an evocative Italian
villa, the movie is a forerunner of one of the most disturbing scenes of Kubrik’s “The
shining” with a typewriter as protagonist. The title originates from a phrase on a note
in Martino’s “The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh” (aka “Lo strano vizio della signora
Wardh”) that said: “Now I know that you’re trying to run from me… but your vice is a
room locked from the inside and I have the key, just me”. It was released in Italian
theaters on August 18th, 1972.
ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK (TUTTI I COLORI DEL BUIO)
Bruno Nicolai wrote and directed one of his best soundtracks for thriller genre. The
soundtrack is mainly based on orchestral dark passages, sometimes rythmic,
sometimes atmospheric, which give a great sense of constant stress. Other than the
romatic love theme, the soundtrack includes another very important theme: that for
the “Sabba” in coral version and lounge-psychedelic version with Beat
arrangements, performed by Alessandroni’s Modern Cantors. It also contains the
sitar execution of the great Alessandro Alessandroni.
DIRECTION AND CAST
Directed by Sergio Martino in 1972 and starring Edwige Fenech, George Hilton, Ivan
Rassimov, Julián Ugarte, Susan Scott, Marina Malfatti.
Young Jane Harrison is traumatized by the killing of her mother and the miscarriage
of her child, after a car accident. Also, she always has nightmares of a man chasing
her with a sharp knife. Jane asks for help to a psychiatrist, doctor Burton. Mary, a
mysterious neighbor, pushes her to take part to some black masses of a Satan
worshipers, undermining even more the fragil mind of Jane.
Third thriller directed by Sergio Martino. Set in an autumnal and distressing London.
The movie stands back from the many movies born from Dario Argento’s success
“The Bird with the Crystal Plumage” (aka “L’uccello dalle piume di cristallo”). This
time Martino mixes thrilling elements to esoteric ones, typical of Roman Polanski’s
cinema. For this movie, the director confirms the duo Fenech/Hilton, made famous
by his first thriller “The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh” (aka “Lo strano vizio della
signora Wardh”). It was released in Italian theaters on February 28th, 1972.
THE CASE OF THE BLOODY IRIS (PERCHÉ QUELLE STRANE GOCCE DI
SANGUE SUL CORPO DI JENNIFER?)
Bruno Nicolai wrote a romantic theme for Jennifer, which is re-taken in various
versions during the whole soundtrack. The main theme has dark and dissonant
strings passages, which make the listener feel tense and distressed.
DIRECTION AND CAST
Directed by Giuliano Carmineo in 1972 and starring Edwige Fenech, George Hilton,
Paola Quattrini, Giampiero Albertini, Oreste Lionello, Annabella Incontrera.
Jennifer e Marylin are two models living in an apartment located in a big building.
Jennifer is trying to get her life back after having divorced from a violent man who
used to force her to have group sex and to take drugs. She meets Andrea and
begins an affair with him. Meanwhile, a young prostitute and a stripper get killed in
the building. Suspects fall on the residents that knew the victims. The hunt for the
killer gets harder due to the largeness of the building.
Operating in the spaghetti-western genre, Giuliano Carmineo takes on thriller genre
with “The case of the bloody iris” (aka “Perché quelle strane gocce di sangue sul
corpo di Jennifer?”), directed under the pseudonym Anthony Ascott. The movie was
entirely shot in Italy, in Rome and Genoa, with the “Martiniana” couple Fenech/Hilton.
Carmineo’s movie alternates Argento-ish thrilling moments and Lenzi-ish erotic
elements. It was released in Italian theaters on August 10th, 1972.
