Studio: Scorpion Release/Music Box

Music Box Films’ Doppelgänger Releasing and Scorpion Releasing continue their ongoing collaboration on re-issuing Italian genre films of the Seventies and Eighties with a restored version of the 1978 giallo Enigma Rosso.

Directed by Alberto Negrin and starring Italian cult superstar Fabio Testi (a Golden Globe-winner for The Garden of the Finzi-Continis), the mystery concerns a detective’s investigation into the savage assault and murder of a schoolgirl and the subsequent stalking of her classmates at their private school.

A prime slice of sordid shocks from the golden age of the Italian giallo, Enigma Rosso is the final film in a trilogy of schoolgirl thrillers following Massimo Dallamano’s What Have You Done to Solange? (1972) and What Have They Done to Your Daughters? (1974). And, like all giallo entries, it comes complete with the genre’s requisite plot twists, psychological terror, startling violence and stylized eroticism.
