  • Indicator Releasing The Cold Eyes Of Fear

    Coming to Blu-ray and UHD in June.

    (Enzo G Castellari, 1971)
    Release date: 26 June 2023
    Limited Edition 4K UHD (World premiere)

    Directed by Italian genre-film stalwart Enzo G Castellari (Inglorious Bastards), Cold Eyes of Fear (Gli occhi freddi della paura) is a tense and brutal thriller which features an all-star line-up, including Gianni Garko (If You Meet Sartana Pray for Your Death), Fernando Rey (The French Connection), Giovanna Ralli (What Have They Done to Your Daughters?), and Frank Wolff (Once Upon a Time in the West).

    When wealthy playboy Peter Flower picks up the beautiful Anna and takes her back to his uncle’s house, he and his guest find that their plans for the evening are cut short by the shocking discovery of a corpse and the surprise appearance of a pair of violent criminals.

    With its vibrant London locations and discordant jazz score – composed by the great Ennio Morricone and performed by the legendary free-improvisation collective, Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – this stylish home-invasion thriller is presented in an all-new 4K restoration from the original negative.

    I've always thought Castellari to be overrated, and this is my least favourite of his films that I've seen. Nice to see Powerhouse putting out more ex-Redemption stuff though, and on UHD.

      I actually really like this one, although (aside from some wonky camerawork and the insane soundtrack) it's really more of an old-fashioned, set-bound thriller than what we usually think of as a giallo.

      That said though, I think I'll be happy with the old blu-ray in this instance.

        I don't much like this either. It just failed to draw me in. Seems very much like a play (not always a bad thing), but here it feels too staged and restricted to mostly one setting.
        I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.

          Picked this one up as it's cheaper now. I hadn't seen this in 25 years since the Redemption VHS, I was a little harsh on it. Maybe it's 25 years and hundreds of subpar Italian films later, but this holds up quite well. I still rate at least 10 other Italian directors above Castellari but it's 1970 style and decidedly odd score won me over. More of an homage to The Desperate Hours than a giallo.

            I only caught up with this in the last couple years but I liked it. I definitely prefer his poliziateschi but I dig Enzo as a director.
