Aristide Massaccesi – better known by his nom de cinémaJoe D’Amato – was the wildly prolific producer/director of the most extreme genre films in history, from horror jaw-droppers that include ANTHROPOPHAGUS and BEYOND THE DARKNESS to erotic taboo-blasters like CALIGULA: THE UNTOLD STORY and his BLACK EMANUELLE collaborations with Laura Gemser. Documentarians Manlio Gomarasca and Massimiliano Zanin now reveal the whole story of D’Amato’s remarkable life and career featuring an in-depth interview with the late filmmaker, new and archival insights by colleagues, family, friends and fans Michele Soavi, Luigi Montefiori, Jess Franco, Eli Roth, Tinto Brass, Roger Corman, Luigi Cozzi, Luc Merenda, Bruno Mattei, Al Cliver, Claudio Fragasso and more, plus explicit clips from dozens of D’Amato’s most infamous films. Also included is D’Amato’s sumptuously sexy 1986 period drama SCANDALOUS EMANUELLE – aka PEEP SHOW – starring Gemser, Jenny Tamburi (THE PSYCHIC), and Lilly Carati (THE ALCOVE).
