Many of you know that “The Grim Reaper” was the first movie that I ever reviewed. And then the screenwriter on this baby is Alex Carver, which is also a fake name—it’s really Luigi Montefiori.
Luigi wrote one of the all-time great spaghetti westerns, “The Violent Breed,” using the name George Eastman. Some people say that Luigi and Aristide co-directed this movie. Are you confused yet? Aristide Massaccesi has a whole PHONE BOOK full of pseudonyms, including John Shadow, which I have a feeling is for his more erotic flicks, Robert Vip and Chana Lee Sun. I guess he uses that one when he wants people to think the movie was filmed in the Orient, although if this is what it looks like when Eyetalians try to carry off being American, I’d like to see em try to be Oriental. Okay, that’s your lesson on the International Cinema.
