See them tear each other apart and then see what they do with the pieces! Avant-garde director Giulio Questi’s proto-giallo is one of the most astonishing Italian genre movies you will ever see and we are showing it here for the first time in its longest version. Essentially a blistering satire on the advertising industry it revolves around a sexual deviant and serial killer of prostitutes married to a rich poultry rancher, breeding wingless and headless chickens to maximise profits, who plans to run off with his secretary. Shocking, surreal and sexy, you’ve never seen anything like it!
