  • 'Tango of Perversion' (1974) - Kostas Karagiannis.

    ‘Tango of Perversion’ (1975) is an absolutely atypical example of exhilarating, Jess-Franco-esque exploitation cinema from sun-hazed Greece. Able Director, Kostas Karagiannis doesn't appear to be a sleazoid neophyte, as he corals his feisty, demonstratively nubile cast with great aplomb, and gets on with the sublimely sordid matters at hand with admirable alacrity! This especially lurid narrative concerns the exploitative, and overtly libidinous orbits of one triumphantly Greek alpha male, Stathis; a tall, handsome, and brooding manipulator, who finds little trouble blithely oozing his way into the confidences of innumerable young women, only to frustratingly discover that he is emotionally unable to keep hold of this most beauteous bounty, having been only temporarily bestowed upon him by his prosaic game-play!

    This wonderfully pulpy tale of arch, self-serving sexual machinations and subsequent mania is amusingly handled by director, Karagiannis, and I found myself wholly absorbed, not only by this most splendidly illicit bacchanal, but by the fascinating perversity exhibited by these uncommonly seedy, amoral characters, all of whom spiral inexorably into a gloriously angst-laden, Giallo-esque vortex of fervid sex and hysterical, bloody violence! I must admit that my initial, pre-viewing interest was somewhat perfunctory, but merest seconds into the preternaturally funky, hep-cat title sequence my initial fears were demonstratively allayed, as the triumphantly titillating, sordidly satisfying, ‘Tango of Perversion' proved to be a exhilarating exploration of murderous, Mediterranean-set decadence! This garish, fleshy farrago of fulsome pulchritude is a wickedly entertaining descent into deliriously dark erotic fantasy, and one entirely deserving of the recent Mondo Macabro Bluray/DVD restoration.
