View Full Version : Tutti i colori del buio (AKA Day Of The Maniac)
04-07-2003, 01:05 PM
I recently saw Sergio Martino's "Tutti i colori del buio" (AKA Day Of The Maniac) from 1973 and found it to be a very cool movie indeed! It's sort of a psychological giallo, lots of surreal dream/flash sequences and so on. Beautiful camerawork and a awesome score! The only problem is that the version i saw (VHS) was Pan&Scaned really bad and the picturequality was bad...
Does anyone know if this movie might end up on DVD anytime soon? Perhaps in a second Giallo-box from anchor bay or anything like that?
I highly recommend the german dvd from Marketing, because the transfer albeit non-anamorphic is really great considering the age of the movie. Head over to dvd-basen (http://www.dvd-basen.dk/uk/home.php3?search=farben+der+nacht&mvis=ok®ion=%25&land=%25&ok=go) for some reviews.
There is also a RC1 in the works, take a look at this thread: http://www.horrordvds.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?s=&threadid=11295

I'd really like to see this.

Cool! Didnt think this movie already was out on DVD!
Kick ass movie. There are some giallo-like touches to it, but most of it is much more dreamlike and surreal. Very atmospheric. I think most people who tend to enjoy euro-horror/thrillers from the 70's will find this movie very enjoyable. I know I did!
Whats the word on the r1 vesion? Is it worth holding your breath?

Now if we can only get other Martino DVDs out, like Blade of the Ripper or Your Vice... uncut.

Great film.Watched it a couple of weeks ago (german release).
My only complaint was the soundtrack.Gread DVD.
Got Torso (Xrated) in the mail today,my second Martino movie.
Oh man I love Eurocult!

I really enjoyed Torso (I have the R1 AB disc). If this is as good, we're on the right track.

Was Martino on drugs when he made this one?;)

It's not good?!?!?!
04-24-2004, 10:03 PM
No no no!It's just a bit weird with all the dreamlike imagery.Very cool indeed!Get it!Don't hesitate!Buy it now!

I agree, I enjoyed it quite a bit too. It's nothing amazing, but I definitely found Fenech gorgeous and the plot interesting. Some fantastic imagery too. Think ROSEMARY'S BABY meets CASE OF THE BLOODY IRIS.

Yeah,that Fenech girl liked those sexcults...
She was gorgeous wasn't she.What has become of her?

It seems she's done a few scattered films here and there, but she was only working steadily in the 70s. There was a post on Mobius with a recent picture of her, and she didn't look too bad. But man, no way it was as nice as this:

Found only this:
Well at least she looks good for someone of her age (56?)
There's alot of nude pictures of EF on the web but no real recent ones.

Correct me if wrong but wasn't the USA DVD due out like Fall of 2003
If so what the hell happened to it?
