Title: House By The Beach / La settima donna (Franco Prosperi, 1977)
Post by: Paul on 06 Jul 2007 - 10:38
Watched this tonight - having heard some random Scottish Cat Stevens lookalike raving about it and just about anything else with a nasty rape scene...

Suffice to say, it wasn't as unpleasant as I was expecting. That said, it's an enjoyable piece of exploitation with some rather pleasing eye candy and a rare, villianous turn from the man Lovelock.

The Japanese print is a little washed-out and grainy, for the most part - how does the Sazuma version compare?

That's right comp, its pure exploitation- doesn't have much in common with police & crime films besides the opening robbery sequence. Its a rape & revenge movie like NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS, HOUSE ON THE EDGE OF THE PARK, etc... The movie itself is no NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS but its still great Italian exploitation!

Perhaps you should consider adding an Italian/European (s)exploitation section to the forum?

By the way was it actually released anywhere under the title HOUSE BY THE BEACH???

The Sazuma DVD is well worth getting. Looks better than the Jap release and has great extras! Time to get rid of your Japanese disc! :)

I've only seen it listed under that title as it was released to cash in on the numerous LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT riffs including NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS which was also marketed under the title NEW HOUSE ON THE LEFT.

It was more commonly known as TERROR which is how i first saw it via the old UK and Greek tapes.
Gotta agree with Vigilanteforce the Sazuma dvd beats the Jap one hands down,also look out for the English track which is accessable via your remote only and is not advertised anywhere on the packaging or menu.

It's had a few different titles, 'House by the Beach', 'Last House by the Beach', 'Terror', 'The Seventh Woman'... So all are valid.

The only actual release titles on home video as far as I know though have been under the titles 'Terror' (Cinehollywood VHS in Greece and the UK) and La Settima Donna (Italian VHS and Japanese & Sazuma DVD).

The Sazuma DVD is superb, a must have for fans of Italian exploitation cinema. Great bonus CD in that package too!

xploitedcinema has had this for a couple of months now. The sazuma one. They also put out an exuberantly remastered edition of CANNIBAL FEROX that puts the Grindhouse release to shame only that one has superior extras. The sazuma does have lobby card repros though.

Thanks for that bit of info ;) I watched it in German, because a) I LOVE German dubs from the 70's/80's  - They add a whole other dimension to the entertainment value of your favourite exploitation titles. - and b) it's one of the early victims on Germany's seemingly endless list of banned movies. ::)

That Lovelock interview on the Sazuma list is defo worth a look. Though I don't agree with his views on violence in the movies, I found his perspective honest and straightforward. :-\

One of the non-La Settima Donna music cues is Paolo Vasile's track 'Escape' from Enzo G. Castellari's Il Giorno del Cobra. It's on the Beretta70 CD. Not sure about the other two but would love to know. They sound great.

Don't know if this has been mentioned before but just found the hidden 'Let's Rock With Ray' supplement on the extras menu page of the Sazuma disc - it's a karaoke-style sing-a-long to the Bryan Ferry riff 'Place for the Landing'. All together now...

I watched the Sazuma release of this the other day and rather enjoyed it - seems odd that such a stylish piece of work could have been the by-product of Wes Craven's film. Also odd that the English track excludes any swearing (as I recall) as surely if the viewer were offended at a few four-letter words this would be the wrong film to watch!

Lovelock was, I thought, really strong in the lead - his usual affable persona, but thoroughly cruel and manipulative beneath the surface, and is it wrong of me to like his trippy lyrics and harmonica more than Ferry's original 'Let's Stick Together'!?

I think Prosperi's direction really lifts a potentially noxious combination of elements out of the cinematic sewer (where Craven's film remains), especially the opening robbery sequence cutting to the girls undressing poolside (accompanied by the Lovelock song) - the way the girls stand for a second, then simultaneously start to move is a stroke of real genius imho.

May be I'm utterly stupid, but I don't seem to find the English audio track on my Sazuma DVD.
Subtitles, German and Italian audio track...everything 's in place, but even when switching audio channels I couldn't uncover that mysterious English dub....so tell me. Is it my player or is this supposed to be some kind of easter egg? :-*

Actually that'd be triple dip as I have the Japanese DVD too!

10K Bullets is often very good at covering DVDs, but their regular reviewer has a peculiar style that makes me think his keyboard has no comma key.  There are often grammatical mistakes as well as small factual errors in the reviews.  There was one write up for I think a Ken Anger DVD that started "Kenneth Anger is one of the most influential directors of the 21st century..."  You know you're off to the wrong foot when the writer gets the century wrong!

That said, I regularly check them for their run downs on current releases and they have a generous database of reviews, I'm very happy to have the site there despite the small issues.

It also looked very, very nice on my Sony 40" LCD played on an upconverting OPPO 981 DVD player a few days ago.  :-X  Plus you get the English and Italian audio, the score on a separate disc, a 30 minute interview with Lovelock in a nice looking digipak housed in a box, not to mention the "Let's Rock with Ray" easter egg, a video of Lovelock's Place for the Landing, in which Ray simulataneously channels Bob Dylan and Lou Reed, to create his own unique vocal stylings.  ::)  The easter egg is found by clicking on Ray's viasge on the extras' screen. :D

Horrors.dvd (see link below) says that the transfer is progressive:

"The progressive transfer makes for an impressive sharpness and clarity too, those many slow-motion sequences looking almost too real for comfort."

http://www.horrordvds.com/viewarticle.php?articleid=476

Ragardless, the Sazuma disc's transfer looks pretty damn fine to me.  ;)

The bonus disc (CD) includes the original score by Roberto Pregadio.

Here´s the track list which clocks in at approximately 37 minutes:

1] La Settima Donna (vocals by Edda Dell'Orso) (2:26 min)
2] Place for the Landing (vocals by Ray Lovelock) (3:15 min)
3] Lo Spogliarello (3:03 min)
4] Favolosa Festa di Danza (4:37 min)
5] Costretti a Fare l´Amore (1:52 min)
6] Un Pomeriggio di Sole (4:17 min)
7] La Fuga (3:49 min)
8] Perfide Bestie (2:57 min)
9] La Settima Donna (Ripresa) (2:25 min)
10] Favolosa Festa di Danza (Versione Alternativa) (4:38 min)
11] La Fuga (Versione Alternativa) (3:49 min)

Great performance by Lovelock, BTW.  What a great amoral sociopath he makes with his good manners, boyish good looks and easy going charm!  :-*

Thanks, both. Although the Severin disk is imminent, I think I'm probably going to pick this one.

As for progressive scan, I've not especially knowledgeable on the subject but do know that the early (American) No Shame releases - which were extravagantly praised at the time of release - always looked soft and blurry to me. I think this is because they are interlaced and I was watching them with a progressive scan player and a HDMI cable.

Ah, yes, Bryan Ferry!  :-*  I knew I'd heard something similar to Place for the Landing before.

Yeah, no soundtrack included and what about the photo gallery, the German opening credits and the easter egg?

Sorta odd that the 10K Bullets, linked above states in their review:

"Severin Films North American DVD debut for Last House on the Beach comes with a stunning audio/video presentation that carries over most of the extras included on Sazuma Productions region 2 DVD."

I consider the CD score to be a pretty big extra, if not the main extra.  The Severin disc appears to carry over "some" of the Sazuma extras, not "most" of them.

I saw this a long time ago.  Which version did you see?  There is a French hardcore version and a German theatrical version on a 2 disc set.  Is the theme on all versions or might it only be on the Italian version?  I can't recall but I didn't think the score sounded familiar when I saw LAST HOUSE.

I saw the French and Italian hardcore versions,the theme plays on both during the opening/closing credits though it's cut very short at the end of the French edition.

I picked this up recently! I haven't had a chance to watch it yet. It's interesting Mondo Digital point out the lack of reference to the company that put it out on the package, as it made me a little disheartened that it was possibly a bootleg of poor quality. Nice to know that's not the case and there's a quality transfer to look forward to.

I saw this a long time ago.  Which version did you see?  There is a French hardcore version and a German theatrical version on a 2 disc set.  Is the theme on all versions or might it only be on the Italian version?  I can't recall but I didn't think the score sounded familiar when I saw LAST HOUSE.

I had no idea there was a hardcore edit of this available. I have the Sazuma release, was the French cut included with this set?

Does anyone know what these options mean? I'm guessing one's a restored version from the negative and inter positive combined? With the other being just from the inter positive?

I believe so, it mentions in the Mondo review the Negative needed a few patches from the IP ( along with some clean up of dirt ect. ), and that the IP is also included so you can watch the film 'unrestored' all from a single source.
