JOE D’AMATO WEEK: Fra’ Tazio da Velletri (1973)

Friar Tazio da Velletri desires Lisa (Christa Linder, whose career takes her from appearing with Blue Demon in Invasion of the Dead and in Boris Karloff’s last movie The Incredible Invasion to showing up in the Westen Day of Anger, the Carlos Enrique Taboad quasi-giallo Vagabundo en la Lluvia, the Eurospy movies Kill Me Gently and Countdown to Doomsday, Harry Reems’ last adult film Bel Ami (she had a body double), Fulci’s Dracula in the Provinces before a move to America and being in Hooper and an episode of Trapper John M.D.; talk about an eclectic resume!) but she’s married and you know, he’s a priest.

He spreads the rumor that he’s a famous priest able to drive the lust out of women, which brings plenty of lusty women his way, and you know the rest, right?

Joe D’Amato was also worked on Sollazzevoli storie di mogli gaudenti e mariti penitenti – decameron № 69 at the same time as this movie and after a right with the producers, he left the film to be finished by Romano Scandariato.
