HEAVY MIDNITES: What Have They Done To Your Daughters?

Giallo! Poliziotteschi! The two great Italian genres of the 1970s — the horror-/psycho-thriller and the cop-oriented action flick — collide in this heart-stopping explosion of pure sleazoid excitement. While investigating the suicide of a young girl, hard-nosed detectives piece together details of a teenage prostitution racket, pitting our heroic crime solvers against a black-gloved, hatchet-wielding motorcycle maniac. Director Massimo Dallamano (legendary cinematographer on A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More) followed his exploitation classic What Have They Done To Solange? with another violent tale of schoolgirls in peril, adding gruesome savagery to an atmospheric police procedural, contrasting brutish thrills with stunning Techniscope cinematography. Showcasing a lush Stelvio Cipriani score and highly memorable set pieces (the frenzied, propulsive chase sequence will leave your jaw on the floor), Daughters is exciting, heavy stuff — the kind of entertainment best experienced on the big screen. And, it’s never been available on DVD, or even VHS in the States!
Dir. Massimo Dallamano, 1974, 35mm, 96 min.
