Anyone else seen Caiano's 1977 made-for-tv giallo NEL SILENZIO DELLA NOTTE about feuding families murdering each other off in a small provincial town?Only runs for an hour in length and has that dreary 70's tv look but does feature all the genre trademarks you'd expect and a rather good cast including Silvio Tranqulli,Giancarlo Prete and Elio Zamuto.

One of the craziest, most enjoyable Gialli... Caiano is an interesting director - his films have a real low budget energy... He is seriously under-represented on DVD with both Eye and La Svastica Nel Ventre still unavailible...

I believe Intra Movies (http://www.intramovies.com) represent Eye of The Lab... Someone  should get on the case and get the film out there on Blu-ray like it deserves!

I couldn't find it at Intramovies new web site (it was listed as being available at their old site) but they have a lot of other interesting titles available including a lot of stuff they did not list at the old site.

Gorgeous leading lady Rosemary Dexter is an interesting actress. She was sometimes also credited as Rosemarie Dexter and I thought for a while that she might be a German actress but I've seen it suggested that she is in fact British.
Does anyone know what happened to this actress?After starring in Pier Carpi's gothic oddity POVERO CRISTO in 1976 she seems to have just vanished,can't find zilch about her on-line either other than the IMDB's claim that she was born in Pakistan (which was under British rule at the time before partition).

I think the IMDb information about Rosemarie Dexter being born in Pakistan is actually correct. The book "Le straniere del nostro cinema" about foreign actresses in Italian films has a listing for Rosemarie (I came across a preview of it while searching on google books) and it states that she was born in Pakistan to a Britsh father and an Anglo-Burmese mother. She apparantly became an actress by chance as director Ugo Gregoretti discovered her while she was on holiday in Rome and propmptly offered her the leading role in his film OMICRON (1963).

I have a thing to ask jonny or anyone who have this film in the uncut version.
Anyone can upload the first and the next murder on youtube or other websites in their uncut versions ?
I ask this because sadly i have the italian cut version,and because i love this movie so much i hope
that someone will help me by putting this scenes on youtube (even just a few of days in order to save them).
About the movie i really like it with a great Adolfo Celi and also Horst Frank in a interesting role (dubbed in italian by the great Antonio Guidi).

I've just finished watching this interesting giallo movie.
The plot is pretty simple: a psychiatrist mysteriously disappears. A girl who seems to have some kind of relationship to him (A relative? A friend? A lover? We don't know at the beginning of the movie but this will be explained through the film) wakes up after a terrible dream in which she sees the psychiatrist chased and stabbed to death in a strange labyrinth. After this scary nightmare, she decides to pursue him and investigate the strange and sudden disappear of the psychiatrist. She meets some shady and strange characters and is mislead mysteriously in her investigation, but after a while, she ends in a strange and shady  orphan house populated by equally shady and mysterious people. Will she discover the truth behind all of this?

The movie is not perfect, it takes a while to take off and has some noticeable cons, like some minor plot holes and some clichè situation. The movie is a pretty good, but pretty standard and formulaic, giallo for the 2/3 of it's length: the final third of the film, on the other hand, takes a sudden change in direction and ends in a pretty psychedelic and psychoanalytical territory (wow how many psych- words   ::) ) which makes the spectator evalutate the previous events in a very, very different light.
If you like the genre, give it a chance. It's not a masterpiece, but it's very enjoyable.
