The Fifth Cord
A TERRIFIC LOOKING AND SOUNDING GIALLO FILM starring FRANCO NERO!
"I am going to commit murder," intones the faceless killer. "I can imagine the thrill and pleasure I will experience as I stalk my victim. There must be no mistakes!" But when four trendy socialites are brutally murdered, an alcoholic reporter (a terrific performance by Franco Nero) begins to unravel a twisted trail of clues. Can this desperate journalist stop a depraved psychopath before he himself becomes the fifth victim?
THE FIFTH CORD has it all: kinky sex, shocking violence, stunning cinematography by Oscar winner Vittorio Storaro (BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE, APOCALYPSE NOW), a classic score by Ennio Morricone, and much more. Pamela Tiffin (THE PLEASURE SEEKERS), Sylvia Monti (LIZARD IN A WOMAN'S SKIN), Edmund Purdom (PIECES), Agostina Belli (REVOLVER) and Ira von Furstenberg (5 DOLLS FOR AN AUGUST MOON) co-star in this superior giallo directed by Luigi Bazzoni now transferred from the original camera negative in High Definition and available in America for the first time ever. Also known as Giornata nera per l'ariete, Evil Fingers and Silent Killer.
