Audio 3: Commentary by Film Critic Kat Ellinger

As a young child Christian suffered a traumatic experience that has scared his psyche forever. His father, a sexual deviant, set up his bedroom with mirrors on the walls and chains on the bed. One evening things get out of control as Christian sees his father murder his mistress…

Conspiracies, murder, double crosses, and a nice little haunted house vibe in a creepy villa… Four people, one inheritance.

Libido is notable for being one of the first post Bava/pre Argento gialli, a small time frame filled with delightfully pulpy genre jams that kinda fall through the cracks when talking about the genre—but with that said, this 60’s giallo feels more 70’s… and that erotic thriller haunted house mystery vibe is to die for. Psychosexual in nature, Libido boasts a small (and effective) cast, solid suspense with plenty of genre tropes, and one hell of an ending—this thing never outstays it’s welcome and the direction from Gastaldi/Salerno is great!
