Vacation Massacre

Vacanze per un massacro

Directed by Fernando Di Leo
Italy, 1980
Drama, Thriller, Crime
  • Italian
  • English


After breaking out of prison, sadistic thief Joe Brezzi makes his way to a remote cottage where he’s hidden the loot from a previous heist, only to have the out-of-town owners return home unexpectedly.

Our take

Joe Dallesandro, former muse to Andy Warhol, leads this exploitation chamber piece (alternatively titled Madness in North America) that is as volatile and horrifying as they come. Armed with peculiar rhythms and atmosphere, Vacation Massacre retains all of its power to unnerve even 40 years later.
