I think crime mixed with giallo makes a great combination, a good example of this is "What have they done to your daughters" :-\

That's right Tanzi, WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO YOUR DAUGHTERS is excellent. A favorite of mine. Its missing the silly comedy of this one though :D

I meant Giallo & Crime mixture.

BTW there is another Crime?Giallo! film that has a sudden unexplained comedy scene but i can't remember what it was ???

And what's with the comedy clown man spinning on his head?





That did make me chuckle a bit. The split bike was shit though.

Like the LAST HOUSE ON THE BEACH dvd, this Sazuma disc has also been marked down. Great deal, wish I didn`t already have it.

Found this:

"Sazuma Release Dates and News

Due to problems regarding the quality of the negatives we are forced to postpone the release date of the recently announced DVD of Sergio Martino's ”“Morte Sospetta di una Minorenne” aka ”“Suspected Death of a Minor”. The DVD will be the first instalment of sazuma's ”“Italian Genre Cinema Collection”. Aside from restoring the negatives, we are now forced to enhance the picture digitally and do some color corrections. During this time, we will try to locate more extra materials for the DVD. Please note that due to issues with the licensor, we can not as initially announced, include the English audio track. The new, now definitive release date for ”“Morte Sospetta di una Minorenne” will be September the 10th of 2006. PAL Region Code 2, SSRP: $29.95"

Thanks.  Was this ever released on tape with the English dub track?  I don't recall hearing about the film until Sazuma announced it.

I've asked a few vhs collectors about this before and none of them know of any English language video releases.A bit of a shame as i wouldn't mind seeing this one in English myself.I wonder if a dub track was ever even prepared for the export market?

The "Blood & Black Lace" book has this listed under the title TOO YOUNG TO DIE so it's possible that an English-dubbed export version was prepared under this title but somehow never got released anywhere...

"Suspected Death..." is not my favorite Martino, but I believe it's his most efficiently directed movie. It is beautifully constructed: dynamic, clever, twisted... There's not a dull moment. Martino shows all his talents in what seem to be a synthesis of all his previous films.

The "Profondo Rosso" influence is obvious, but it didn't bother me. Argento and Martino speak a different langage. They are world appart thematically and artistically. This influence is just superficial. "Suspected Death..." would be as effective without it.

Unfortunately, Martino went a bit too far with the humour... Some sequences belong to a Laurel & Hardy film not a crime movie. It's a shame and I wouldn't mind getting an edited version without all these silly sequences.

There's something profoundly immoral in injecting funny (silly) moments after a dramatic scene. It's truly disturbing. But this is something Italian horror, thriller and crime movies are plagued with. I often feel that many italian directors were not willing to really embrace the dark theme of their movies (or worse, that they didn't even care about violence, that it was just an ingredient among others). Luckily there are exceptions: Dallamano, Barilli, Avati,...

Anyway it was a different era, less conservative then ours. Anything was possible. "Suspected Death..." is still a fascinating movie, and I don't understand why it is not more popular...

About the English dub track: Back then we thought there might be one, but we couldn't find it anywhere. No one had it. The licensor himself didn't either, so it's a kind of obscure thing really.

Arrow's upcoming dual-territory release lists the English dub track as an option.

Thats unexpected. Looks like they are bringing some really rare ones out. Good news for people who couldn't get the Camera Obscura copy.
