ECCO (1963)

An entertaining early Italian Mondo movie. Obviously since this was made in '63 it's not as crazy as the later stuff where we see all kinds of death and disgustingness. The big gross-out here is probably the Laplander woman castrating a reindeer with her teeth, which really isn't all that graphically shown anyway. I love the style of these old crazy films. The blurring of reality with scenes just designed to shock. The jumping from beautiful landscapes to harsh ugliness. Its a good mix. Plus if you get bored with one segment it's over quickly enough. A.K.A.- THIS SHOCKING WORLD & IL MONDO DI NOTTE 3(This was apparently part of a series of movies in Italy. The other 2 look pretty dull in comparison.)
